* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: ** Buffy in the Season 5 finale 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.]]

But the way it was written comes off more like Giles coldly washing his hands of his beloved student right when she needs him the most. Many fans still argue that his absence due to Anthony Stewart Head wanting to spend more time with his family should have been something involuntary, like the Watcher's Council sending him abroad or getting trapped in another dimension, so he wouldn't look like a jerk.

** Wood. His backstory was certainly interesting (he's the [[spoiler:son of the second Slayer that Spike killed]]), but the fandom is split over whether he really needed to be introduced in the final season and if he served any purpose before and after "Lies My Parents Told Me" other than a LastMinuteHookup with [[spoiler:Faith]] (which is in itself a BrokenBase, for those who prefer [[spoiler:Faith]] without a love interest or with [[LesYay Buffy]]).

Later when she is secretly having sex with him, the Scoobies keep making comments that remind Buffy of what she's up to, e.g. "We know you've been all tied up." and "You've been going at it too hard, slinging the doublemeat and pounding the big evil." * ActorShipping: "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Sariza]]", short for Creator/SarahMichelleGellar and Creator/ElizaDushku who play Buffy and Faith respectively.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: None AuthorsSavingThrow: In Season 6, magic was portrayed as akin to a drug, which was highly dangerous and addictive, and could even lead to users becoming "junkies" willing to do anything for a "fix," as happened to Willow slowly over the course of the cast thought "Once More With Feeling" would work since James Marsters (Spike) season. Joss Whedon himself didn't like this development, and Anthony Stewart Head (Giles) were the only ones with any actual singing experience. Now? The fans agreed; Season 7's first episode is considered by ''many'' fans to be featured a series high point and a rare occurrence scene where a show's MusicalEpisode Giles explicitly states that magic is not a sign addictive, and it's explained that Willow's actions were actually due to her not using magic. This, of course, made hash of most of the show's having [[JumpingTheShark jumped storyline of Season 6. It does qualify as an author's saving throw, or at least close, but it's not a retcon. Giles' line is "This isn't a hobby or an addiction. It's inside you now," implying that this is a change for Willow due to her actions at the shark.]]end of the last season. Willow got addicted to magic because she has an addictive personality, as much to power as to magic. What with Tara expressing her concern in Season 5, this was already on its way to becoming Willow's character arc, and "Tabula Rasa" is very much in tune with her behavior in the rest of the series. Unfortunately, "Smashed" and "Wrecked", which bring her addiction to its climax, are about the most {{Anvilicious}} episodes in the whole series. In the latter, she realizes she has a problem because she hurt Dawn with magic. Or rather, wrecked the car she and Dawn were in because she was high on magic. Just like addicts in real life!

In their mutual hate of the Willow/Kennedy shippers, that is. There's also the fact that [[EnsembleDarkhorse Oz and Tara]] are among the least hated characters in the fandom. Granted, both received their fair share of vitriol in the early days ([[ReplacementGoldfish especially]] [[SuddenlySexuality Tara]]), but nowadays they are almost universally-adored by all fans.

** It's the price that had to be paid for keeping Spike around. S2 & S3 Spike was established as ''such'' a badass, that Buffy could never have a conceiveable excuse for ''not'' dusting him if she got the opportunity to, and badass Spike would of course kill Buffy if he could. The two could only co-exist if Spike was rendered to be a non-threat, such as the chip he gets in S4. Of course a harmless Spike is anything but a Badass -- and the Scooby gang never tire of reminding Spike of this in S4.

Xander doesn't get any more of a free pass than other comic relief characters (nobody seems bothered when Anya openly longs to be a vengeance demon and pines about murdering people), and Xander is almost never shilled by other characters, a requirement for Creators Pet status-it's a major plot point in a number of episodes that he's the most useless Scooby and even he knows it.
** Hell, even Riley counts, for all the CharacterShilling he received from Xander, who described him as the "kind of guy that only comes around once in a lifetime." ** Xander comes across as this too at times. Notably his dislike of Angel stems mostly from an EntitledToHaveYou trait towards Buffy, which he never gets over or gets called out on (as GiveGeeksAChance hadn't gained much traction in the media that point, Xander would have been viewed more sympathetically than now). Notice how Willow pines for Xander and eventually has to learn AnAesop about unrequited love - while Xander never has to. There are also times where Xander gets away with acting like a {{Hypocrite}} while the show has no problem calling other characters out on their hypocrisy.

A) The trope page for Christmas Miracle directly describes it as a stroke of unbelievable good luck when the protagonist needs it most, and B) it feeds the running plot thread that something engineered his return from the hell dimension, and is offering him "a place in this world" — later revealed in ''Series/Angel'' to be The Powers That Be and his destiny as a Champion
** In 'Amends,' Angel goes on a heartfelt tirade about how he's being forced to kill himself. Buffy can seemingly do nothing to dissuade him, despite pouring her heart out and practically begging. Then it begins snowing. Slowly. Inexplicably. [[InsaneTrollLogic Since it's snowing in a place that usually doesn't get snow, Angel comes to the obvious conclusion that he can't kill himself, and that all his relational problems with Buffy are solved]]. They walk happily through the snowy streets and the episode ends without so much as another word. This is never explained, nor ever mentioned again.

In the Season 8 comics, the writers finally wised up and had Willow break up with her.
