Added DiffLines:

* DemotedMemories: The fate the demon of the episode [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS6E17NormalAgain "Normal Again"]] had in store for Buffy: she would be tricked into killing all her friends and then spend the rest of her life telling herself that they never existed and that she was never the slayer. That all her memories of Sunnydale was made up in her own head while she was a psychotic living in a mental institution.

Added DiffLines:

* SnowMeansLove: A providential snowfall prevents Angel from committing suicide-by-sun. He and Buffy then go for a walk in the snow. This is ''southern California.'' Y'know, [[CaptainObvious because snow is]] [[DontExplainTheJoke nearly impossible there.]]

* AManIsNotAVirgin: "Teacher's Pet" seems to exist to highlight and subvert the trope.

* BrickJoke: In Episode 9, "Never Leave Me" we see [[spoiler: Warren (actually The First Evil)]] coaching Andrew on sacrificing a pig for its blood in the basement of Sunnydale High, at which Andrew fails miserably ([[ShoutOut "That'll do]] [[{{Babe}} pig!"]]). Later in Episode 16, "Storyteller" we find Buffy and Principal Wood in that basement trying to figure out why strange phenomena are happening... when a a squealing pig runs by.

** TheSmartGuy: Willow and Giles, the research experts. Giles and Jenny also count as TheMentor to Buffy and Jenny respectively.
** TheChick: Cordelia, who [[DefrostingIceQueen slowly becomes a good friend to the gang and ends up dating Xander]] while still remaining her usual [[BrutalHonesty brutally honest]] self.

** TheChick: Cordelia, until she breaks up with Xander. However, she continues to hang around with them in the second half of the season.
** SixthRanger: Wesley, Buffy (and Faith's) new Watcher. Also doubles as a NaiveNewcomer given his inexperience.

SuperSoldier and Buffy's new boyfriend.
** TheHeart: Xander has really grown into this, what with the motivating speech he gives Buffy in the season premiere. He's even called this in a spell Willow performs near the end of the season.



** TokenEvilTeammate: Spike, who occasionally stands with the Scoobies for the sake of a good fight. He's still evil, however, and just because he can no longer do the damage himself, it doesn't stop him from aiming a loose cannon their way.

Added DiffLines:

* TheTeam: After Riley's departure.
** TheHero: Buffy (what else is new?)
** TheLancer: Giles is frequently at Buffy's side throughout the season, especially in the aftermath of [[spoiler:Joyce's death.]]
** TheSmartGuy: Willow, although he's slowly growing into a protective force thanks to her magic vastly improving.
** TheBigGuy: Spike, motivated by his unexpected [[spoiler:love for Buffy]]. Buffy even says he's the only one besides her who stands a chance in a fight with Glory (and she's correct).
** TheChick: Anya (with some elements of TheSmartGuy due to her continuing demon expertise and surprising proficiency in running a business) and Tara, who doubles as a TeamMom.
** TheHeart: Xander.
** TagalongKid: Dawn, although she is very crucial to the plot, and probably the {{Deuteragonist}} of the season after Buffy.


Added DiffLines:

* TheTeam:
** TheHero: Buffy, although she's become a bit of an AntiHero in the aftermath of her resurrection. [[spoiler:Xander]] becomes one in the season's last episode.
** TheLancer: Willow, who's also darker due to her magic addiction.
** TheSmartGuy: Anya, taking over the Magic Box from Giles.
** TheBigGuy: Spike. It's less obvious than in the last season, however.
** TheChick: Tara, also the TeamMom.
** TheHeart: Xander, [[spoiler:which saves the world in the last episode.]]
** TagalongKid: Dawn.
