** Faith's never again mentioned sexual assault of Xander got even more uncomfortable when Eliza Dushku revealed in 2018 that at age 12, she was sexually abused by the stunt coordinator of ''Film/TrueLies'', who even sabotaged a stunt and caused her to break a couple ribs as a threat of what would happen if she told anyone.

** The Gentleman appeared only in [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS4E10Hush "Hush"]], but their creepy designs and bone-chilling acting performances (including beloved future cult icon Creator/DougJones) made them one of the most memorable and scariest monsters in the show's history.


Added DiffLines:

** [[EnigmaticMinion Whistler]], an EvilMentor of sorts to Angel who was popular enough that Joss Whedon [[WhatCouldHaveBeen once considered]] bringing him over to ''Series/{{Angel}}'', thanks to his cool personality and great taste in [[NiceHat headgear.]]

** The entire fact that Season 7 is all about "Potentials" being killed is such a perfect metaphor for how many fans see the season that it's hard to believe it wasn't intentional on some level.

** The Gentlemen may be one of the scariest monsters in the series, which is saying something, but they're so nicely dressed and friendly to each other so it's hard not to admire them a little.

** Misogynistic BigBadWannabe Warren has a large hate base as well, for reasons not unrelated to [[spoiler:killing Tara]] (which he did while attempting to kill Buffy).



** Xander is this to some fans, who find him to be a bit of a self-righteous hypocrite who never gets called out for his behavior.

** Similarly, in "Surprise" Drusilla freaks out over some flower decorations, mumbling that ''they're wrong, they're wrong, they're all wrong''. Those flowers? Red roses. Given the events of "Passions", this is almost certainly not an accident.

** During career day, Willow questions out loud if she likes [tress or shrubs (another word for bushes) more. Xander replies, "That's between you and your god." and that he definitely likes shrubs, while Buffy says "No shrubs for me!" Willow turns out to be a lesbian..
** At one point, Willow questions if she's the only one who reads Series/DoogieHowserMD FanFic. Guess who stars alongside Willow's actress in Series/HowIMetYourMother, and played the lead in another Joss Whedon [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog project]]?

** Buffy in "[[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS5E22TheGift}} The Gift]]" is portrayed as heroic for wanting to protect Dawn at all costs, even though she knows it means unimaginable suffering and probable death for herself - never mind that she knows that it also means [[spoiler:unimaginable suffering and probable death for everyone and everything else in existence, including Dawn, meaning that she basically just wants to end the world for no reason.]] The fact that she [[spoiler: eventually sacrifices herself is arguably not heroic either - she's the Slayer, and season 6 shows how fast Sunnydale could be overrun without her. The most noble and selfless choice for the good of everyone would've arguably been if she had sacrificed Dawn. The fans, after all [[TheScrappy wouldn't have minded that much.]] Her death was probably due to meta reasons of wanting an excuse to end the show once the 5 year contract was up and the writers didn't know if anyone would renew them.]]
