* WardrobeMalfunction
** A story in ''Veronica'' volume 201 had the girls discover a collection of old-style bathing suits and try them out in the water. The boys didn't really appreciate the cover-everything styles... until it became clear that the old fabric couldn't stand up to water anymore and disintegrated, leaving Betty, Veronica and the rest ''naked'' in the ocean. Heck, this even happened to ''Mrs. Lodge'' who tried out one of the suits at a pool party.
** In another Archie comic, Cheryl stole a dress that Veronica designed and wore it to a party just to laugh in her face - only to find out at that point what a bad seamstress Veronica was. The whole dress ripped apart in front of everyone. (Of course, as humiliating as that was for Cheryl, the story didn't quite end on a high note for Ronnie either...)

* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Multiple cover have Archie (and some boys) show interest for cheerlaeder, often Betty and Veronica, or easily distracted by them during the games.

* TotallyRadical: A notorious case. For example, one late-'80s story had a lifeguard tell a surfing Veronica, "I really dig the way you attacked those waves with your rad moves". Around the same time, an in-house ad for an ''Archie'' calendar featured a cartoon teenager, sporting a ridiculous multi-coloured mohawk, oversized shades that EltonJohn would reject, and mismatched-colour clothes, telling the reader, "I ordered mine!" Like gnarly, daddy-o, if a rad hepcat teen like him bought one, I better slap down the bread too, yo yo yo.

* YeGoodeOldeDays: Al Hartley's rose-coloured view of the 1890s as a time free from the ills of modern society… and apparently free from the ills of the 1890s as well.

* TeamworkSeduction: BettyAndVeronica have pulled this trick a few times, usually with a Type 2 ending. Since the two girls are best friends, though, "threesome" endings are rare but not completely out of the question (in a PG-rated sense, of course).

While Archie Comics is best known for its comic books featuring Archie and/or other "Riverdale" characters, their output has never been limited to those characters. Archie published stories with a number of superhero characters, including The Shield ([[CaptainPatriotic a patriotic hero]] who actually predates the more popular CaptainAmerica), the Hangman, the Fly, the Jaguar, and others. Starting in the early 1970s, these and other "non-Riverdale" titles have often been published under the "Red Circle" imprint. Archie has also published a number of licensed titles over the years, such as ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures''.[[note]] Archie's ''TMNT'' used the 1987 cartoon series as its base, and could have its darker moments, even if it wasn't ''as'' dark as the original Mirage comics, which were still running at the time.[[/note]] The two most successful non-Archie original titles have been ''Comicbook/{{Sabrina|TheTeenageWitch}}'' and ''Comicbook/JosieAndThePussycats'', both of which were spin-offs of the original Riverdale series. Both of those comics spawned fairly popular animated series, and while [[Film/JosieAndThePussycats the film version of Josie]] was unsuccessful, ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' was one of the most popular teen sitcoms of the late 90s / early 2000s. As of 2015, a live-action television series, "Riverdale", is currently in development at Creator/TheCW.
