* AscendedExtra: Salem, after the upgrade to TalkingAnimal. Originally, he was just Sabrina's non-talking (save for the occasional bit of InnerMonologue) pet cat who only rarely got ADayInTheLimelight. Post-ReTool, he's a major character and an active participant in the stories.

* DarkerAndEdgier: From 1972 to 1974, Archie published ''Chilling Adventures in Sorcery as Told By Sabrina''. It had the odd combination of [[http://www.misterkitty.org/extras/stupidcovers/stupidcomics284.html straight-up horror stories]] with art in the familiar Archie house style. Sabrina plays the role of Horror Host. One story in particular stands out, featuring a boy who teases a stutterer at school. The kindly teacher happens to be a witch, and gives him an enchanted book that ''melts his face off'', and possibly kills him! The story probably violated several rules under UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode, but somehow gained the CCA seal of approval (perhaps because Archie pretty much ''ran'' the CCA?)
** ''Chilling Adventures'' will be revived in Fall 2014 as ''Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'' by ''ComicBook/AfterlifeWithArchie'' writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
* DemotedToExtra: Cousin Ambrose seems to have fallen prey to this, in favor of the increased use of Salem as a supporting character.
** Sabrina herself is this in a meta-way. Since TheNineties she's been on-and-off compared to Archie's. Her last few appearances have only been Crossover cameos.

Aguirre-Sacasa is a horror twist on ''Sabrina the Teenage Witch''.

Cousin Ambrose seems to have fallen prey to this, in favor of the increased use of Salem as a supporting character.
** Sabrina herself is this in a meta-way. Since TheNineties she's been on-and-off compared to Archie's. Her the main Archie's crew. Most of her last few appearances have only been Crossover crossover cameos.



** Sabrina is consistently blonde but what shade has constantly changed over the past few decades. Likewise her hairstyle has changed multiple times, though her classic BobHaircut is the norm.
** Whether Zelda has [[AnimeHair green hair]] or not.
** Salem has been depicted as a black cat for twenty years now but the specifics aren't concrete. Is he completely black or does he have white patches? If so how do they look?

* HumansAreUgly: Witches occasionally refer to Sabrina as being ugly. Which is really weird considering Della...
** This is explained early on as being the result of an "ugly curse" being place on her by a mean warlock. Of course in the witch world this results her being beautiful as they operate on an BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad mentality.
* IntercontinuityCrossover: With, of all things, ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'', in a story that spanned across [[http://www.sonicscene.net/comics/archie/sabrina28/01.jpg an issue of the Sabrina comic]] and [[http://archive.sonichq.net/comics/images/covers/specials/large/sss10.jpg a Sonic Super Special comic.]]

* ProgressivelyPrettier: Sabrina's aunts, who originally were depicted as conventional looking witches, were given makeovers in the late 90s, presumably either to update their look or to match their more normal looking portrayals in [[Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch the TV series]]. Hilda lost her haggard, skinny appearance and long nose, and Zelda went from being heavy-set to slim, with both losing their traditional witches' clothes/hats in favor of modern women's fashions a la Sabrina.
** The [[WesternAnimation/SabrinaSecretsOfATeenageWitch most recent cartoon]] subverts this trope by returning the pair to their fat and skinny figures, only inverted, but keeps them looking vaguely like Sabrina and in [[NewAgeRetroHippie clothing fitting]] modern witches.
