Always hungry and fiercely lazy, Forsythe P. “Jughead” Jones III is best recognized by his insatiable appetite and interesting choice of headwear. Archie’s best pal has a tendency to eat superhuman amounts of food in a single sitting, and never gains a pound! He seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to chow—he can tell when it is near and devours all of it soon after! Unlike his starry-eyed best friend, Jughead is much more analytical about a lot of things. Considering how much trouble it gets Archie in, Jug is a little wary of dating! The unique hat Jughead wears is actually a good luck charm that he never takes off. Bad things tend to happen when the cap is removed, such as his female foil Ethel stealing a kiss! Jug is also surprisingly sharp and witty compared to his casual demeanor. He prefers to march to his own beat, and his genius usually goes unacknowledged.
