Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalBadass: While the Master was never a wimp, in the first game, he has suddenly gained such powers as {{teleportation}} and [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]].


* BookEnd: The central villains of the two games are respectively the key antagonists from the show's first and final seasons: the Master in the first game, and the First Evil in ''Chaos Bleeds''.
* CallBack/CallForward: Loads and loads of them, from Spike flipping the V at Angel to Xander's love spell to Buffy freaking at the idea her mother will be [[CameBackWrong raised from the dead]] to Faith borrowing Willow's ''bored now'' CatchPhrase. When Cordelia goes on about Angel being evil Angel will address this, commenting on shouldering the crimes he had committed and trying to work towards redemption. This would be shown in greater detail when the two characters become the leads in Angel's show. Part of Spike's HeelFaceTurn is also due to him being as against the game's BigBad's plans as he was against Angelus unleashing Acathla to destroy the world.

** The first level of the docks requires holy water. Unless you think to smash open the large crates to find a font you're kind of stuck. Buffy even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] being able to find it.

-->In a time when the world was young and demons ran unfettered across the face of the earth. [[RetCon The powers that be]] chose a young woman, one girl in all the world to combat the forces of darkness. Upon her death, the power passed to another and another. Down over the millennia with each inheriting the power of her predecessor. The power of the Slayer.

* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/GiselleLoren performs the voice of Buffy (and Anya in Chaos Bleeds), where Kari Wahlgren fills in for Creator/AlysonHannigan in the second game.



* PowerWalk: In the first game, the gang ([[AndZoidberg and Spike]]) walking into the foundry after making a door with a molotov cocktail gets used in its version of the opening sequence as the group shot.

* {{Wake Up Call Boss}}: Spike is the first major boss fight in the game. This is the first fight that really forces you to conserve your health elixirs and focus on tactics and Slayer powers. You might say that he is a... ''[[DifficultySpike Difficulty]]'' [[IncrediblyLamePun Spike]].

* TheVoiceless: Strangely, [[CloudCuckoolander Drusilla]] does not have a single line of dialogue. The demon possessing her does though, and he's not about to take any of Spike's lip.

Added DiffLines:

* LockedDoor: Found in abundance. Doesn't make a lot of sense since one of Buffy's powers is SuperStrength and the doors don't appear particularly strong. There are, however, some doors here and there that ''can'' be kicked down.


A video game for the UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}} was released in 2002, featuring all the Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer cast save Creator/SarahMichelleGellar, taking place between the third season episodes "Revelations" and "Lover's Walk" (the gang knows Angel's back, but Xander and Cordelia are still together). It centers on yet another bid to revive The Master, with Spike being forced to help because Dru is held hostage. It was followed by a sequel, ''[[VideoGame/BuffyTheVampireSlayerChaosBleeds Chaos Bleeds]]'', which has slain foes BackFromTheDead as Ethan Rayne challenges The First Evil to a contest, using The Scoobies as his champions in a bid to become a chaotic god.
