YMMV: Buffyverse
  • Complete Monster: Described by one of the most ancient, powerful and evil vampires (Buffy's Season 1 Big Bad The Master) as "The most vicious creature [he'd] ever met," Angelus set the gold standard for evil in the Buffyverse. For centuries, Angelus was the scourge of Europe with countless murders, rapes and torture to his name. Angelus kicked off a career in evil with the murders of his own family. Refusing to kill a longstanding nemesis vampire hunter, Angelus contented himself by murdering the man's wife and baby son, turning his young daughter into a vampire to force her own father to destroy her. His self-admitted masterpiece was seducing a pious, tormented girl with psychic powers, murdering her family and driving her to a convent before slaughtering everyone in the walls and turning her into a vampire to preserve his insane, broken work of art forever. When his soul is lost again, Angel delights in psychologically tormenting his former beloved Buffy's friends and family out of disgust for the human feeling Buffy gave him. The ultimate culmination of this was his brutal murder of Jenny Calendar, leaving the corpse for her lover Giles to find in a parody of a romantic rendezvous. Angelus's evil extended to his hope of awakening a demon to suck all of humanity into a hell dimension for eternal torture, solely for the fun involved.
    • In point of fact, even his name: when he returned home, fresh from the grave, his little sister who opened the door remarked that he "had returned to her an angel." After slaughtering his family, he adopted the Latinate of angel (Angelus) as his name to mock that comment.
