* CanonWelding: The more fantastical Little Archie stories were canon in the sense that they were being told through the filter of childish imagination [[spoiler:and in the sense that they actually happened thanks to Ambrose being a powerful dimensional slider who inadvertently took the gang to alternate realities where their imagination could play out for real.]]

* MergingTheBranches: Rather than telling the same story twice, [[spoiler:the death of Archie]] is carefully written to make it vague which universe it is taking place in so that it can plausibly be happening in both at the same time.
** Although not very successfully, as the story showed [[spoiler:Mr. Weatherbee's lady friend, Nancy's pregnancy, and Cheryl still recovering from her breast cancer]], which only happens in the [[spoiler:Betty!verse]].

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The "Evil" Dilton really does think he's doing what's best for humanity by giving them unlimited free energy, but he's too blinded by ambition to realize what the "Good" Dilton had figured out; said invention would only lead to the destruction of the multiverse instead.

** {{Subverted}}, because [[spoiler:the prime universe simply splits in two at the juncture of whether Archie marries Betty or Veronica. Whichever option eventually happens in the prime universe, Archie still has to die because that's the constant between the universes.]]
** Not really subverted because it is still an {{AlternateContinuity}} of a ''possible'' future. In fact, as mentioned in the {{SavedByCanon}} section, the story this is expanded from (which this is an {{AlternateContinuity}} to) ended with Archie raising his kids with his wife. The constant between the universes is that Archie chooses either Betty or Veronica.[[spoiler:The fact that he dies is not the constant because the Archie Prime universe's Archie hasn't died. The future of the Prime Universe (if we ever see it) is unknown and if Archie getting killed before having kids is considered a constant between the universes, than so is him having a {{HappyEnding}} where he isn't shot and raises his kids.]]

* TookALevelInJerkass: Mr. Lodge does this in both universes, as he actively tries to sabotage Archie and Betty's life together because Veronica is too heartbroken and depressed to become the businesswoman he wants her to be, and also trying to manipulate Archie and Veronica into getting a divorce because Archie's influence is making Veronica too kind-hearted to become the businesswoman he wants her to be.
