* SmallNameBigEgo: Patricia. Prides on her beauty, her (brief) time studying finance in a (third rate) university, and her rich ancestor. The truth? She is a vain, shallow and egotistical empty-head, whose time in college was only to find a husband (who quickly got rid of her when he realized what she was like), and whose own family wants nothing with her. Nobody denies she is pretty, but ''anyone else'' in Eco Moda is nicer than her - even the WomanScorned, even the {{Jerkass}}es. She tries to live the same way as she did when she was maintained, and that only hastens her fall. She frustrates Marcela, her only friend, by gleefully ignoring every bit of advice the poor woman gives to her. The only person who actually likes her is Nicolás, who is so charmed by her beauty that ignores every clue he is given about her real personality.

* RealitySubtext: Ana María Orozco and Julian Arango, the actors who interpreted Betty and Hugo Lombardi respectively, got divorced during the soap. Their respective characters were ideological opposites, and is believed that the bitterness both held for each other helped to make their confrontations more realistic.

* OverprotectiveDad: Hermes Pinzón, Betty's father. He seems to notice all the awkwardness and ugliness of his daughter, but still insists on advising her against men with "bad intentions" and drives away any prospective son-in-law. Given what happened the one time his daughter ''did'' had a boyfriend, you couldn't blame him.

** GoodParents: Hermes is a loving and caring father that often falls into ProperlyParanoid territory while Doña Julia encourages her daughter into socializing and making friends, Betty said that they're the most important thing in life.

Added DiffLines:

* BettyAndVeronica: As a classic Telenovela, this show loves this trope. The love triangle between Betty, Armando and Marcela is the most prominent example but is also very interesting. By Bettys point of view she is obviously the Betty (Sweet, shy and [[HollywoodHomely not quite attractive]] as the stunning Marcela) while Marcela is more of TheVamp, more outspoken and jealous, putting her into Veronica's territory, however from Marcela's perspective, she is Betty, as she knew Armando from early childhood and has supported him from the begining, contrasting with Betty who is a new comer, exotic and different. Betty later becomes the Archie to Armando's Veronica and Michel's Betty. Let's not forget that Armando was the center of another triangle, or more like a square, between Marcela's Veronica and her two Bettys, Betty and Alejandra. The resolution made Armando stay with Betty.
** Also there's Efrain's Archie to Sofia's Betty and Jenny's Veronica, Sofia loses.

* MenAreStrongWomenArePretty: However hard-working and resourceful Betty is, she simply can't be competent enough to make the others appreciate her actions without obsessing about her looks with at least as much emphasis:
wow, she is very educated for a secretary - turned down because she is ugly;
she outmaneuvered the guard into letting her in - the guard mumbles how one can look so disgusting;
she saves Armando's face during a meeting - he wants to put her into the luggage rack, because her brains are worth nothing while she is ugly...
