* {{Expy}}: Visiting superhero Supreme Girl is a clear nod to Franchise/{{Superman}} with her FlyingBrick powers and [[KryptoniteFactor element weakness]]. Her foe, Dr. Arachnid, hearkens to Franchise/{{Spider-Man}} foe Dr. Octopus with his CombatTentacles-style arms.

''Archie's Weird Mysteries'' is the most recent animated adaptation of the ''[[Franchise/ArchieComics Archie]]'' comic book, airing from 1999 to 2000 (two seasons). Unlike the usual goofy nature of the series, this show actually showcased the gang getting into supernatural adventures and having to tangle with monsters, ghosts and other paranormal or extraterrestrial activity. Creator/{{DiC Entertainment}} provided the animation and the series, while still fairly comedic, actually drifted into dark territory sometimes (though not by much; think of something along the line of ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}'').

* AesopAmnesia: Lampshaded in one episode where Archie wonders if Veronica's experience as a giant would teach her a lesson about discrimination before deciding that it's unlikely.

* AesopAmnesia: Lampshaded in one episode where Archie wonders if Veronica's experience as a giant giantess would teach her a lesson about discrimination before deciding that it's unlikely.


Added DiffLines:

** As detailed in AesopAmnesia, Archie mentions the time Veronica was a giantess.


Added DiffLines:

* InsistentTerminology: A 50 foot tall Veronica is "big-boned" not "enormous".


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Everyone. Car crashes, falling, monster attacks, getting thrown by an angry giant Veronica, no one even gets a scratch.


Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: The ''one'' time they show up is after a 50 foot Veronica rampaged through town. She shrinks down JustInTime before they show up and they buy the [[HeWentThatWay She Went That Way]] ruse despite Veronica being naked and standing in the tent which she makeshifted a dress out of. Add to that they missed her shrinking down despite her being (at most) twenty feet in front of them.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: Jughead being "different" is mentioned pretty frequently here, sometimes along with an aesop of not looking down on those who are different. His train of thought is pretty off from everyone else's, he can get overly focused to the point of blocking out the world around him in one episode but have his mind wander to weird thoughts in another, and his social behavior is at best a lot less toned than everyone else's (such as literally pounding a table from laughing too hard). Depending on the episode, it can be even more or less pronounced; most traits line up with the autism spectrum, but there are also plenty that are just weird quirks.


Added DiffLines:

** The intro song has Jughead introduced in a MyFriendsAndZoidberg fashion. ''WesternAnimation/TheArchieShow'' did the same thing.

** "Ship of Ghouls" nearly had this happen to Reggie due to a curse on a treasure if not for Archie, Betty and Veronica pulling him away from it. Not so much for the zombie pirates who returned to claim their treasure and were so consumed by greed that they burned with the treasure when it feel into a lava fissure.

* DeathByMaterialism: [[spoiler: The villain of "Mega-Mall of Horrors" was a man who made a DealWithTheDevil to sate his material desires. The ending, where he and his mall are pulled underground for losing all his victims, implies the devil came to collect him instead.]]

When Archie's car comes alive, it becomes this.this.
** In the episode "Zombies of Love" after Veronica gets a voodoo witch to give her a love potion (disguised as salt) which she would secretly feed to Archie, Archie becomes this; it starts with him being overly affectionate and soon Veronica becomes his obsession. It gets worse when Veronica leaves the salt at Pops for Jughead, Betty, Reggie and everyone else there to use by accident. Towards the end she has everyone chasing after her obsessively, mentioning that she was "their's". Shudder.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Subverted in "Monster in the Night." The executive did buy the silence of the victims, but only because his company did end up fixing the formula problem that was causing mutations and wanted to prevent the negative press from closing the new Riverdale plant, which would hundreds of jobs for the town.
