Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues:
** Naturally when Merrick tells Buffy she's the Slayer, she of course creeped out by it. And when getting her first taste of fighting the undead, she naturally doesn't want anything to do with it.
** When Merrick throws a knife straight at Buffy's face and she catches it on instinct, she's naturally angry about it even if it was a "test". Even more so when he admits the grave she was sitting on the previous night was that of a recent victim which could've killed her and she instantly responds by punching in the face for it.
** Merrick is a trainer for the slayer, but hasn't actually trained himself to fight. Both times he's forced into action he struggles, the first time Buffy is able to back him up. The second time [[spoiler: is against Lothos which leads to his death.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TranshumanTreachery: Pike's friend, Benny, and Buffy's friend, Gruell and Cassandra are turned into vampires and show no qualms about attacking them in their undead states.

* AmbiguousSituation: When it comes to the fate of Cassandra in the film, the original screenplay, novelization and comic, she's clearly killed by Lothos via a neck snap when she mentions "God". In the film though, it's hard to tell. we only see Lothos floating toward her as she wakes up from being kidnapped. And it's later mentioned by Buffy friends that Cassandra's body was found later in the Hills, though the cause of death ism't mentioned, and that she was wearing a yellow leather coat one of her friends had loaned her. In the climax of the movie, we see one female vampire wearing said jacket around their arms, implying that that's Cassandra having turned and joined with the others in attacking the school. Though the movie never addresses it.

* CampGay: Amilyn has touches of this. (Is it any wonder he's got a [[EmbarrassingFirstName feminine-sounding name]]?)

* CanonDiscontinuity: A canonical comic book named Slayer : The origin would take over as the proper origin as stated by Creater/JossWhedon himself, albeit using a few elements from the original screenplay, not the movie itself.

* RiseFromYourGrave: In order to prove to Buffy that vampires are real. Merrick takes her to the local cemetery and to a recently buried person, citing that the victim died of blood loss but no one was sure how, surmising a vampire got to him. Sure enough the victim pulls himself from her grave, now a vampire and hungry. If that wasn't bad enough, it turns out he wasn't the only recent victim as a female vampire likewise awakens right underneath Buffy and tries to grab her. And Merrick ''knew'' this.

** Amusingly, virtually the same line occurred in ''Film/HungerGames'' ("She shot an arrow, at your head!") -- and Donald Sutherland was in both scenes.

* ActionDressRip: Actually starts out with overtones of ComedicUnderwearExposure. Pike tries to keep Buffy from pursuing the vampires at the dance but tears her ball gown in the process, [[ShowSomeLeg exposing her legs]] and [[PantyShot petticoats]]. But Pike promptly makes up for his mistake by lending Buffy his [[HellBentForLeather large black leather jacket]] to cover herself. Voila, back to {{Badass}} mode!
* ActionGirl: The original intent of the film was to take a typical horror film's 'DumbBlonde' who either dies first or only survives because she's the hero's love interest, and make her the ChosenOne of Destiny, while the CoolLoser that she 'surprisingly' falls in love with, who would ordinarily become the BadAss ChosenOne, takes her place as the film's DamselInDistress.
