Top 20 Buffyverse Characters

6. Winifred ‘Fred’ Burkle


It was no accident that Angel gelled as a show much better when Fred arrived – the shy yet brilliant Texan science whizz was the element needed to make Angel Investigations as loveable a family as the Scoobies. I’ll just leave this here: “Wesley, why can’t I stay?” 


5. Wesley Wyndam-Price


On Buffy alone, Wesley was one of the most annoying characters in the whole franchise. On Angel, however, he grew from cowardly Watcher to lone anti-hero to the tragic star of the show. Kudos to Alexis Denisof for somehow making it feel like a believable character growth.


4. Faith Lehane


The ying to Buffy’s yang, rogue Slayer Faith is everything our hero could have been without her core moral compass. She was only ever a guest star but Faith’s descent from bad girl to full-on serial killer back up to redeemed hero makes her one of the show’s most fascinating characters

  1. This would be my top 3 as well. Without Spike there’s no point to Buffy. They needed this character to provide the sarcasm and the relatable outcast role. Willow throughout all seasons is the other o so important relatable character that shows change is not even possible, but good. Strive to always be yourself. And Buffy makes everything possible. She goes through every human emotion possible and always comes out on top. In one awesome word: Empowerment

  2. The first time I saw Buffy (back then in 2000’s) I really didn’t pay attention to the characters development… today I just have ended my binge watching Buffy time, and I really am stupefact about how great every single character is by his own right… Obiously there is someones greater than others, but still, you can see how everyone puts their effort to create an enyojable series (yes, even Andrew)

    Now I have ended it again, and I can feel how Willow and Spike really grows; its a shame that they just put aside Faith, she is very interesting character too; btw, I have to say that Spike really get me, for moments even I felt in love of him ha ha ha ha

    Great top!


    1. Totally agree! Every character undergoes a massive development across the show. Yeah, Willow and Spike are the best because they begin as completely different people from where they end up. Haha you have to love Spike! More from Faith would have been great, too.
