Buffy: Big Bads post #1  quote:




Incredibly old Vampire who could exercise some hypnotic control over Buffy. He was the vampire who sired Darla, who sired Angelus, who sired Drusilla, who sired Spike... so a long line of evil right there... Eventually he met his doom by being thrown through a sky-light and onto the pointy leg of an over-turned table.


Drusilla was sired by Angelus, however was driven completely and utterly mad before hand. That madness shines through even now. When she needed herself a play-mate, she sired Spike. Also known as William the Bloody (for his bloody awful poetry), Spike has killed 2 slayers in his time as a vampire, before going soft and getting chummy with the scoobies.


The immortal mayor of Sunnydale, Richard Wilkins III (who is really just Richard Wilkins I), is over a hundred years old, and, as the word immortal suggets, unkillable. The Mayor turned into a huge slug creature at the Sunnydale high graduation ceremony.


Adam was an unstoppable killing machine (part human, part demon, part android) created by the Initiative, with (one would assume) good intentions... though you have to wonder exactly how that could be... He killed his creator and escaped from the Initiative headquaters, and was taken out shortly later by Riley and Buffy.


Glory, or Her Royal Glorificus, was a God from a hell-dimension before being cast out by her fellow Gods. With an insane need to get back there, Glory searches the world for "the key" to open the door to all realities and re-enter her own. Her God form was thrust into the body of a mortal, Ben, who has no control of Glory's actions. She's super tough, and has a pretty nice body, however gets weak if she doesn't suck the life-force out of people's heads (making them insane in the process). She was eventually lain to rest inside Ben's body as Giles smothered him.


After one of the Trio caused the death of her girlfriend, the totally unstoppable Willow went off the deep end and did what anybody would do in those circumstances: went on a revenge rampage... but after feeling all the pain in the world, she decided a much more logical solution was to end the world all together. She was eventually... er... talked out of it.


Since the First is intangable, and has no real form, let's stick with Caleb, who The First gave some incredible powers to (which was never really explained too clearly, but "eh"). He kicked some slayer butt, killed some potentials, and gouged Xander's eye out before he got sliced from the groin up by Buffy's enormous axe dealy. The whole groin thing seemed appropriate, cause the dude was a bloody sexist bastard.


Notice how these big bags get more and more unkillable as the seasons progress?

Adam was cool, I liked the story leading up to him. The way the Scoob's took him out was totaly lame. They all held hands and chanted or whatever. Bleh.

Adam was a boring "character", though. I put "character" in inverted commas, 'cause the dude didn't have a character...which is what was so lame about him. I'd rather spend a day with Data from ST:TNG than listen to that dink ramble on for even a minute...

I like Glory, she was sassy.

Yeah, but Glory got beat down with that axe a little too easy. Best thing about her was Giles killing that dude she morphed from.

Adam could beat down Glroy

Master was the best though. He was the guy that played Neidermeir in Animal House.

-HECK!

Giles killing Ben was awesome. Gave me the creeps, it really did.

Unlike most big bads, Adam didn't even make it to the last episode in the season

Giles said something like, "Buffy is too good to do the right thing" or something. Giles stepped in and shanked him like a prison snitch. Dope.

The evil mayor seemed more ominous to me. Maybe it's because Buffy and the crew were younger, I don't know. Seemed like they kept having to outdo themselves after that.

-HECK!

My favorite was the Mayor. He was just so...jolly. There's something creepy about overly jolly people. And I loved him and Faith, "Now if I'm not mistaken, some lucky girl got a Playstation."

Glory was great fun. And I loved her hobbits with leprosy Spike and Dru were fun in how she was always off in her own little world and he was always snarky.

Adam sucked I liked how he was made and that he killed Walsh, but after that he was no good

I think that my favorite bad guy that is not a Big Bad is The Judge.

The whole story around him was great, how he had to be assembled from separated body parts and how he was a birthday present to Dru. And I loved it how he died, "What's that do?" BOOM!

Plus being able to suck the humanity out of people/vampires is just cool.

The whole thing with the judge cracked me up. Everyone's so scared of this seemingly immortal dude, so they blow him up with a rocket launcher

And when they were picking up the pieces Oz is just standing there and pointing to parts saying stuff like, "Um...arm!"

I agree with the rest of you, Adam was pretty lame. He didn't even have any good lines so he loses my vote!

My favourite bad(s) have to be Spike and Dru...mainly because I have a thing for vampires and...well...Spike...heh...^_^

I like Glory too, and the names her little minions called her. "Cool, creamy one" and "most silky and effervescent Glorificus" etc...

And the Mayor, he was just so....so....iunno, he was just great!

(Spike and Dru are still the best!)

Yes, Spike and Dru can't be beat in my opinion.
The electric girl in Angel reminds me of Glory. Although she is not a big bad. Gwen is her name. I thought it was pretty cool when she made Angel's heart start beating again.
