* Punching out the MonsterClown in ''Nightmares''.
** Let's not forget the taunting afterwards!
-->'''Xander:''' You were a lousy clown! Your balloon animals were pathetic. ''Anyone'' can make a giraffe!

"Nightmares." And let's not forget the taunting afterwards!
-->'''Xander:''' [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech You were a lousy clown! clown!]] Your balloon animals were pathetic. ''Anyone'' can make a giraffe!



* Saving Buffy's life in 'Prophecy Girl', and forcing Angel, who'd already given up, to get back on his feet and do likewise. An especially noteworthy moment of awesome because Xander, after being rejected for a date by Buffy, did ''not'' handle it well, alienating both Buffy and Willow in the process. But as soon as he finds out Buffy's in mortal danger, he immediately drops the petulant sulking, [[TookALevelInBadass takes a few levels in badass]], finds Angel and calls his ass out, and they go storm the Master's lair together. Xander's behavior sometimes divides fans, but if ever there was an episode that shows his beginnings as TheHeart[=/=]the BadassNormal of the team, this is it.

[[folder:Season Eleven]]
* As if Buffy having been BroughtDownToNormal because of a SuperRegistrationAct going full Creator/RondaRousey on a UFC thug wanting to take her down wasn't cool enough later in the comic two army drones spying on her are taken out by, seemingly, a full on ninja. Said ninja enters Buffy's apartment except it's something even deadlier...hi Faith.

* Buffy's first big win over vampires was over Luke. Who's Luke? A vampire Darla had just sired to enact The Harvest, which is all kinds of awesome as it would have led to the [[NightmareFuel Wishverse.]] Faith's first big win over vampires? In the book ''Go Ask Malice'' she wards off the vengeful ghost of a former Slayer, who was captured by Kakistos and basically had every horror visited on her to become a mindless slave and Faith comes dangerously close to the same happening to her, she hunts down Kakistos, makes him believe she is broken before ''[[GroinAttack stabbing his balls off,]]'' wipes out a whole gang of vampires, cleaves Kakistos' head in two with an ax (he gets better) and still has the energy to brutally beat down and possibly kill the abusive pimp who target her mother. '''In. One. Night.'''

* "There's scarier things than you, and I'm one of them." Spoken by Buffy ''as a vampire''. To a creature with a club arm that had already beaten her down and forced her to ''run'' instead of continuing to fight.

** Stake nothing. She rams a support beam sized '''2x4''' through his chest, right after he taunted Buffy about 'needing a bigger stake.'

* The Mayor was back to back awesome, even if not a {{badass}} as we'd call it now. His crowning moment, however, was probably killing [[spoiler: the definition of AssholeVictim, Pricipal Snyder]].

* [[spoiler: Faith has another {{Badass}} fight with Buffy (which at one point involves her swinging a glass door into Buffy's face) [[HandicappedBadass while only having just left the hospital from her coma]]. However what makes this fight truly impressive is the fact that at the end Faith uses a machine the Mayor left her in order to [[BodySwap switch bodies with Buffy and then knock her old body out]]. So apparently Faith intentionally let Buffy beat the shit out of her so that she could switch bodies with her, knock her old weakened body out, leave Buffy in Faith's body to the Watcher's and escape. Damn.]]

* Personally, I thought Spike fighting to earn his soul back, throwing away a lifestyle he'd kept for centuries, knowing he had little to no chance with Buffy despite that, is one of the most {{Badass}} things someone can do. Love, man. It conquers all.

* Amanda in ''Help'' seeks Buffy's advice on an abusive boyfriend...should she pound him into the pavement some more. As a long term BullyHunter the question leaves Buffy speechless. [[spoiler: [[{{Foreshadowing}} Of course]], Amanada turns out to be a Potential.]] Who takes on vamps and Bringers with a little help from Dawn. With no clue of what's going on. Even Kennedy thinks she's a BadAss having trouble fighting just one with help.

* There's [[BigBad Mayor Wilkens]], right, who's invincible, on the verge of ascending into a [[ScaledUp giant snake]], and he's come to threaten the Scoobies in the library. When he menaces that he's going to kill Buffy, Giles stabs him through the chest with a saber. Being invincible and all, it only offends The Mayor that Giles would use violence, but it still shows him as a {{Badass}} PapaWolf.

* Under Archaeus' thrall, Angel runs Spike through with a sword. What does Spike do? Declare Angel just made on hell of a mistake, pull the sword out of his chest, and start DualWeilding.

** Spike's insecurities get the better of him and he suggests he and Buffy break up before they ruin their friendship too? Buffy doesn't let him take the easy way out and they talk the issue out while in between stops of Buffy's plan to stop [[spoiler: D'Hoffryn]], sticking together and admitting they're both scared.

* When Dracula's hubris at anipulating the book turns him into Maloker, the Old One who originated vampires, what do the gang do? Make Dawn a giant to distract him, have Buffy and Spike on his head to stab his eyes out, have Willow fly a priest to the top of a pointy skyscraper to ''bless it'' and make it a holy object, and helicopters with spotlights form a giant cross in the sky. Dawn finishes it off by body-slamming the blind and cross-stunned Malorker into the now-holy building's spire.
