* Buffy takes the "General" part of her role during Season Seven to its more literal extreme: [[{{Handwave}} for one reason or another]], the military starts to employ Slayers for anti-supernatural Spec-Ops work. Buffy is either just the first, the leader, or pretty much TheOnlyOne.

Buffy is either just the first, the leader, or pretty much TheOnlyOne. Crossover with military-themed shows (like the StargateVerse or ''Series/{{NCIS}}'') is pretty probable under these circumstances.

** It's to be mentioned that, even when it is not the whole (or the most important) part of the plot, there are ''many'' Buffy fanfiction stories where a character fires off a lengthy WhatTheHellHero speech at what the author perceives were serious flaws of the character or the canon Buffy series plot.

* The organization of a "Slayer Academy" post-Season Seven. Varying from military-style boot camp to "sorority for superpowered girls" to (sometimes literally) a [[Franchise/HarryPotter Hogwarts]]-style experience.

* Buffy is sent back in time to circa 1880, and meets either human William Pratt or vampire William the Bloody. Almost always a straight Buffy/Spike pairing, though the plot can be used to set up Buffy/Angelus as well. [[OneTrueThreesome Or both.]]

* Someone (usually Xander) [[AccusationFic bashing the living hell out of Buffy for her]] [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] tendencies of Season Seven (which the fic probably goes on to show never really left after the show ended, making her getting up to bat in being the "General" of the Slayers yet another example of her constant AesopAmnesia).
* Some OC Slayer wishing to be left alone (or making a pretty good work by herself) up until Buffy arrives into her life and [[MeetTheNewBoss acts in no way different from how the Watchers' Council treated her]], the only real differences being [[BuffySpeak the valley-girl speech pattern]] and the capacity to get physical with the Slayer if she must. Sometimes [[AccusationFic another character will point out her hypocrisy]], with a response of "well, I'm ''the'' Slayer, so if I do it, I guess it has to be in the right".

* ''Buffy'' and ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' is such a CommonCrossover that such stories have their own tropes (and considering the amount of 'Verse slang that pops up in the future-Slayer comic ''Fray'', some fans wonder when Joss is going to declare that world to be Earth-That-Was and get it over with).

Invariably, these will be the costumes of recognizable characters, particularly from anime.
