Added DiffLines:

* TheSociopath: Betty is highly sociopathic when she's in her Dark!Betty alter ego. She becomes emotionless, ruthless, manipulative and violently AxCrazy. Betty's sociopathic side came out to play on two occasions: the first one is in Chapter 3 when she chose to violently interrogate Chuck by giving him date rape drugs, burning him up in the hot tub by turning the temperature of it to very high levels, and attempting to drown him by dunking his head underwater with her high heeled foot will aggressively yelling at him and torturing him. Even Veronica showed extreme concern about Betty's violent behavior while interrogating Chuck and felt that she took it way too far. The other time was when she went out of her way to go and blackmail Cheryl to lie at FP's trial so that he would receive a lighter jail sentence for his crimes. The manner in which Betty threatened Cheryl was beyond manipulative and she came off as unstable and menacing. There's no doubt that underneath that NiceGirl facade is a very dark and sinister personality.

* AcademicAthlete: Betty is a brilliant student as she gets straight A's in school, plus she's on the athletic side because she's TheCheerleader on Riverdale High's cheerleading squad called the Riverdale Vixens. Her comic book counterpart is even more of this trope considering that not only is she TheSmartGirl who gets straight A's but she's into a variety of sports including cheerleading, baseball and swimming. TV!Betty isn't as athletic and sporty as Comics!Betty but she's on the athletic side because she's a cheerleader.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Although Betty can be selfless at times, she also has a very selfish and self absorbed side to her. She has a habit of making everything about her even if she doesn't intend to. Unfortunately, this characteristic manages to get on the nerves of her friends and they end up calling her out on it.

* AmbiguousDisorder: She's on Adderall for ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD ([[AttentionDeficitOhShiny Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder]]). Because she takes Adderall, she doesn't dimply the symptoms that are typical found in those that suffer from ADHD such as [[MotorMouth rapid speech]], inability to focus or concentrate for long periods of time, constant restlessness, and hyperactivity. Betty also doesn't precisely remember her abnormally strange behavior towards Chuck the next day in 1x03. She also seems to black out during the time she's on her dark side or when she's her alter ego. She doesn't seem to remember or recall what she was doing during the time she interrogated Chuck - in a violent, aggressive manner, which may be a possible sign that she's suffering from [[SplitPersonality Multiple Personality Disorder]] or Dissociative Identity Disorder, also known as DID or MPD. She also battles serious [[UnstoppableRage anger issues]], has very intense chaotic emotions, has poor self-esteem and self-image, resorts to self-destructive behavior (such as SelfHarm), has [[MoodSwinger erratic mood swings]], has [[BlackAndWhiteMorality black]] and [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity white]] views on outlook and people, has strong sense of idealization and devaluation of others, has [[DestructiveRomance intense, chaotic relationships]] with loved ones, suffers from issues with codependency, and struggles with [[HotBlooded impulse control]], which may indicate that Betty suffers from undiagnosed [[HollywoodPersonalityDisorders Borderline Personality Disorder]], also known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder or BPD. Also, there's speculation amongst some fans that she may possibly suffer from Intermittent Explosive Disorder, also known as IED because of her recurrent angry outbursts, her impulsivity, and her inability to control her temper at times. There's also some speculation amongst fans that she may suffer from UsefulNotes/BipolarDisorder because of her extreme mood swings, issues with controlling emotions (especially her anger) and her ambiguously manic behavior.

** Attempts one on Archie in Chapter 1.01. [[AllLoveIsUnrequited It doesn't end well.]]
** [[spoiler:Finally shares a mutual one with Jughead in 1.Chapter 13.]]



* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Downplayed. Betty has displayed some irrational behavior in regards to Archie. When she discovered about Archie's affair with Ms. Grundy, she went out of her way to investigate Ms. Grundy and find out any information that he could dig up about her in attempts to bring her down for sleeping with Archie. When her mother Alice threatens to expose Archie's scandalous affair to the cops not just to have Grundy arrested but also to expose Archie and make him come off as the non golden boy with a non shiny reputation, Betty blackmails her mother by threatening to out the dirty secrets of the Cooper family if she doesn't leave Archie alone and back off her personal vendetta against him. While writing in her diary, Betty even lampshades that love can make you do crazy things in which she did when it pertained to Archie in Chapter 4.



* {{Yandere}}: Downplayed for Archie. Betty has been passionately in love with Archie since she was ''four years old!''. In other words, Betty spent '''over a decade of her life''' pining for Archie in secret and hoping that he would reciprocate her affections. She also displays ClingyJealousGirl behavior towards Archie and is threatened by anyone getting within Archie's presence or vicinity. It's also likely that Betty was a bit of a StalkerWithACrush for Archie as she lived right next door to him and could see right into his room from her very own window so she most likely spent a lot of time watching him and admiring him from a far. She also [[NotGoodWithRejection didn't take it too well when Archie and Veronica first got together]] or when Archie chose to reject her. Her strong codependency and attachment to Archie was a result of her being LoveHungry and because Betty DesperatelyCravesAffection. She does manage to tone down her severe attachment and codependence to Archie once she moves on with Jughead. It should be noted that Comic!Betty was pretty much obsessed with Archie to extreme levels in some of the storylines and she was willing to do some morally ambiguous things to gain Archie's attention and affections.
