Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Big Bads, Ranked

By  | 

The WB

*Spoilers ahead*

One of the most exciting things about being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan is watching the gang fight the forces of evil and finally defeat each season’s “big bad.” You know they’re going to do it (although it was touch-and-go for a minute there during season seven), but there’s that nagging part of you that worries they won’t.

I mean, Buffy has died twice, so anything goes, really. What’s unique about many of the series’ villains is that in addition to being completely evil, some of them were quite charming. Yes, you wanted the gang to win in the end, but you kind of liked the path to the big W. I can’t say the same for EVERY Buffy big bad, but there were some throughout the series’ seven seasons that just hit the mark. Here’s our ranking from worst to best.
