** Speaking of Xander: Xander. WordOfGod says he's a stand-in for Joss's high school self, which may be why he never gets called on the many, ''many'' shitty things he did to everyone around him, the many ways he fucked things up for the people he's supposed to love (especially Buffy). See above re: BaseBreaker.

** Dawn actually achieved this for some in Season 7. With a bit of CharacterDevelopment, less emphasis on the DistressBall and contributing more to the group - the hate towards her lessened. Season 7 is a BaseBreaker but people who don't like the season do list Dawn's character as having improved.

** Dawn, thanks to her constant [[{{Wangst}} whining]] and ungrateful attitude, as well as how [[TheLoad useless]] and [[DamselScrappy even detrimental]] she is to the Scoobies. She also has a [[BuffySpeak teenage-ry]] selfish attitude and often lacks empathy. She matures in the final season, so that by the end of the series, while still disliked by many, she has gained a certain level of respect from the fandom.

It doesn't help that Buffy sacrifices herself for her in the Season 5 finale, something quite a few fans felt was unearned on Dawn's behalf.

** The entire episode "I Robot, You Jane" was pretty bad even at the time, and has only grown worse with how dated all the references to the state of the Internet at the time have become. This is especially clear in the climax, where the villain's robot body deliberately looks ridiculous to illustrate how out of place he is in modern times, but it's now almost impossible to pick this out from all the unintentional silliness it's surrounded by.

** Tara as a character and her relationship with Willow. Groundbreaking for its time and/or poorly written, poorly acted and too abrupt. And related to this one; was Willow truly a lesbian or was she a closet bisexual? This was a topic that could start World War 3 on internet forums back in the day.

And related to this one; was Willow truly a lesbian or was she a closet secretly bisexual? This was a topic Many people have argued that the show perpetuated biphobia by not even exploring the possibility that she could start World War 3 on internet forums back in love men and women, whereas a similarly sized proportion of the day.fandom have pointed out that there are many lesbians *in real life* who used to date men before they realized they were gay, and that this shouldn't be ignored.

** Season 1's "I Robot, You Jane" ends with Buffy, Willow and Xander laughing over their equally bizarre relationship woes, and jokingly stating they'll never have happy, normal relationships and that they're doomed. This becomes ''way'' less funny after you've seen the [[DysfunctionJunction whole]] [[LoveHurts series]].

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: The two 'English' potential Slayers. One sounds passingly like DickVanDyke. The other is presumably supposed to speak with [[IAmVeryBritish a posh English accent]]. Both sound ridiculous and nonsensical to anyone who actually is English.

** Yet another coincidental illusion to something done later in Joss Whedon's career is "I Robot, You Jane", which involves a villain who controls the internet and makes a metal body for himself. [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Sound familiar]]?
