* The ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'' take on the ComicBook/ArchieComics character Betty Cooper fits this trope, the show being set in a modern-day '50s RetroUniverse. While Betty's demeanor, style of clothing, and iconic ponytail definitely seem wholesome as can be, she self-admittedly has a "dark side", which may or may not have something to do with whatever mental condition she has that makes her dependent on Adderall. When she leashes out as "Dark Betty", she expresses a lot of anger and a certain degree of sexual repression.

She's got the grown up blues\\
Tight dresses and lipstick\\
She's sportin' high heel shoes\\

And be sweet sixteen\\
And back in class again.

It's hard to be too judgmental, given [[spoiler: that she was the victim of repeated sexual abuse by her [[DemonicPossession demonically-possessed]] father.]]
