* 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.

* 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. '''[[BadAss In. One. Night.]]'''

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* The finale and final fight against [[spoiler: D'Hoffryn]]. When the tide of battle turns on him with [[spoiler: the Anya ghost's betrayal]] he quickly hightails it out of that dimension to recover. The crew ''don't let him'' and hunt him down. He quickly tries to get on their good sides, promising them one wish each, no backstabbing, using insecurities they've had throughout the season. Everyone turns him down and Buffy cuts his head off.
** The new Magic Council is clearly more likely to stick around, being composed of recurring characters and stars, including Dracula, Riley, Willow, and Giles. And who else? Buffy herself. Ready to take the reins and take responsibility for the new rules of magic.

** When Spike and Buffy's WillTheOrWontThey starts becoming an issue again, Xander and Dawn immediately confront them on it, enabling them to realize they can take the steps towards having a relationship again. This enables them to resist Harmony and other vampires' blatant attempts to break them up. And when Spike's own insecurities pop up and he tries to end things before he messes them up too badly to even be friends, Buffy calls him on it.

* The season overall is chock-full of the gang marvelously averting PoorCommunicationKills and showing how they've grown.

** After all the trauma he's been through, Xander makes the mature choice to see a therapist. This helps him deal with a lot of his issues and also help his friends with theirs.
** Andrew averts a FaceHeelTurn and betrayal by talking to the other Scoobies about the situation.
** When Willow and Buffy fight over Willow working with the military, they come to the conclusion that they can disagree and still be friends.

* "Intervention". Spike gets tortured by a [[PhysicalGod hellgod]] that no one has been able to beat, and the only thing he has to do to save himself pain is tell [[BlondesAreEvil Glory]] where the Key is. ''And he doesn't do it.'' Because he couldn't hurt the real Buffy by betraying Dawn.

* The episode "Checkpoint," where after a full episode of being made to feel inferior by the ZenSurvivor Watcher's Council, the ditziest BigBad ever to appear on the show, and a crazy KnightsTemplar army of [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Extremists]], Buffy gives a perfectly calm, almost deadpan set of demands to the council's lead DeadpanSnarker, punctuated by a thrown broadsword. This troper's roommates' ears are still ringing from his cheering. The scene in all its awesomeness:
