Top 15 Best Buffyverse Characters
7.4 01. Anthony Head
Rupert Giles from Buffy
From episode 1 of Buffy, he was my favorite character. I was so sad when he became just a recurring character in seasons 6 and 7. I've always just thought he was really funny, and his occasional badassness is always enjoyable.
7.5 02. Amy Acker
Winifred Burkle from Angel
Fred became my favorite Angel character very, very quickly. She's just so loveable. I was so upset when she died. WHY, JOSS? WHY?
6.9 03. Emma Caulfield
Anya Jenkins / Anyanka / Aud from Buffy
I loved the whole concept of her being an ex-demon and having to have all these everyday things explained to her. Her speech in "The Body" was just heartbreaking.
7.5 04. David Boreanaz
Angel / Angelus / Liam from Buffy and Angel
This is pretty much a given, I think. Angel is one of my favorite heroes, and Angelus is probably my favorite Buffyverse villain.
7.3 05. Charisma Carpenter
Cordelia Chase from Buffy and Angel
I just adore Cordy, which is weird, because I didn't really like her in season 1 of Buffy. I hated the storyline where Jasmine was controlling her or whatever, because it so clearly wasn't Cordy. Ugh. So annoying. And then she just basically fell off of the planet.
7.1 06. Alyson Hannigan
Willow Rosenberg from Buffy
Willow is just so adorable. It's hard not to love her. I loved her guest spot on Angel, too, it totally had me shipping Willow/Fred.
7.7 07. James Marsters
Spike / William the Bloody on Buffy and Angel
Okay, obviously I had to include Spike. I think most people would rank him higher. I really do like him, though. Everyone thinks he's OMG SO ATTRACTIVE, but I just don't, which I guess is why he isn't higher on the list? Haha, I would totally be his best friend though. I think his character is great for comic relief and all, but I thought him and Buffy were horrible together. Just sayin'.
7.3 08. Julie Benz
Darla on Buffy and Angel
Maybe I'm just blinded by my love for Julie Benz, but I really liked the character of Darla, especially in flashbacks and on Angel. I just love the whole quartet of badass vampires, I guess. :P
6.8 09. Tom Lenk
Andrew on Buffy
I've seen a lot of hate for him online, and I just don't understand how anyone can not love adorable little Andrew. I thought his character was so funny, and I loved his friendships with Anya and Spike.
7 010. Juliet Landau
Drusilla on Buffy and Angel
This character was brilliant. Not much else I can say.
7.3 011. Alexis Denisof
Wesley Wyndam-Price on Buffy and Angel
I hated his character on Buffy, although the make-out scene with Cordelia was hilariously brilliant. When he came on Angel, his character somehow immediately got 10x better/funnier, while still being the same character. I guess it was better not having him always be playing off of Giles.
5.7 012. Mercedes McNab
Harmony Kendall on Buffy and Angel
I thought she was a great minor character on Buffy, and I loved when she hopped over to Angel. She's such a pathetic vampire. I loved her as Angel's secretary, and I loved the episode where she thought she killed the guy she was on a date with. I was so happy when she got into the credits!
6.5 013. Mark Lutz
Groosalugg on Angel
Kind of a weird character, but goodness he was good-looking. And I liked his character. He was really sweet. I wish he'd been around longer.
6.1 014. Stephanie Romanov
Lilah Morgan on Angel
I was just generally really annoyed by Wolfram & Hart and everyone involved with it at the beginning, but Lilah grew on me for some reason. I'm not sure why. And I shipped Wesley/Lilah. Though I ship Wesley/Fred more.
6.5 015. Alexa Davalos
Gwen Raiden on Angel
I liked her character a lot and wished she was in more episodes. I think she had a lot of potential and I wish they had given her a more important role in the show.
3.3 016. Indigo
Rona on Buffy
My favorite potential. She's mostly an honorable mention because none of the potentials (except I guess Kennedy, but even her) really got that much screen time. There were just so many of them and they as a group were depicted as being more important than they as individuals, so we didn't get to see a lot of Rona. But she stole my heart in her first couple of scenes, and stayed my favorite potential until the end.
