Every Alpha Bitch needs a right hand gal pal. Someone to order the students to Make Way for the Princess, someone to give orders to the Girl Posse on behalf of the Alpha Bitch, someone to nod along with the Alpha Bitch's comments and sneer at her victims, you get the picture—she is The Dragon to the Alpha Bitch.
The Beta Bitch is the BFF to an existing Alpha Bitch; they're likely to be Childhood Friends. She's usually there to assist her in her schemes and act as a gossip buddy. She might be an Academic Alpha Bitch, worrying about her grades as much as her "buddy" is concerned about her popularity.
A lot of the time she's more like a servant and is treated like one by her supposed friend, thus making her an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain. Other times she might be waiting in the wings for her chance to backstab her and usurp the role for herself. Or if the AB in question is actually a Lovable Alpha Bitch, then the Beta Bitch will be the really nasty one and may even be jealous of the friendship between the Lovable Alpha Bitch and the Cool Loser. Others may be the Former Friend of Alpha Bitch, but she rarely is.
Has nothing to do with Super Mecha Death Christ 2000 B.C. Version 4.0 Beta Bitch.
