* ADayInTheLimelight:
** "Something is Haunting Riverdale High" focuses on Dilton building a device that ends up phasing himself, Archie, Midge, and Big Ethel into another plane of existence, basically turning them intangible and invisible. The episode reveals more about Midge and Ethel beyond Midge simply being Moose's girlfriend and Ethel chasing Jughead, respectively. Dilton also sadly notes that the only time anyone talks to him is when they need help with science.[[note]]Which is also true given the episode format.[[/note]] He was missing for an entire day and no one noticed before Archie became intangible. After they get turned back to normal, Archie [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments decides to spend the rest of the day with them]].
** "Dance of the Killer Bees" is another episode which focused on Ethel, as we learn she's also president (and the only member) of the Bee Keeping Club. Archie also inspires her to run for Prom Queen alongside Betty and Veronica, and [[spoiler: she wins.]]

** A more [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] version but "Something is Haunting Riverdale High" features Archie looking legitimately guilty when he realizes how badly he's been neglecting Big Ethel, Midge and Dilton after they all remark on how invisible they feel most of the time.

** A single bite is all that is needed to turn someone into a vampire. The spell can only be broken if the original vampire is destroyed (or at least turned back into a human). It is also implied the Master can change vampires back into humans [[spoiler: like he did to Scarlet.]]

* [[TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday The Huge Mall That Wasn't There Yesterday]]: "Mega Mall of Horrors".
* IntrepidReporter: In this continuity, Archie writes for the school paper and actively looks for engaging stories. Of course, most of the girls he meets consider him a HotScoop.

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Medlock sealed his own doom when he drained the youth out of Scarlet and cast her aside. Scarlet turned out to the "Ender" of prophecy who could have brought about eternal night. But instead, she used the sun to turn him to dust.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Medlock's goal was to "befriend" (read: turn into a vampire) the "Ender", who would help him bring about [[TheNightThatNeverEnds eternal night]]. [[spoiler: "Halloween Night of Horror" ultimately reveals that he had ''already'' befriended the Ender; His loyal servant Scarlet was the one the prophecy spoke of, but he used and cast her aside, only realizing his mistake when it was too late.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NearVillainVictory: [[spoiler: Medlock succeeds in turning the whole cast into vampires, even Veronica, who was believed to be TheChosenOne. But the real chosen one, Scarlet, whom he had betrayed, accepted her destiny and destroyed him.]]

* {{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.

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.
