It has now been over 25 years since the iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer first graced our TV back in 1997. Buffy quickly became one of the most-watched TV shows of that time and has since garnered an incredibly large and dedicated fanbase all these years later.
From its quirky characters, terrifying monsters, gripping storylines and badass action scenes, it is no wonder as to why it managed to captivate an entire generation of people.
The character of Buffy was relatable for many. A young woman, who wants nothing more than to live a normal life like anyone else, has to navigate this big world whilst also fighting for her life every single night. After all, "Into every generation, a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number. She is the Slayer."
So, let's take a look at Miss Summers' most badass moments from this iconic show's seven-season run.
10. "Just Slid In Her Like She Was Butter"
Kicking off this list we have to start with Buffy going up against The Mayor. This episode is the finale of season three and is titled Graduation Day Part 2. Buffy organises the entire school against The Mayor as he puts his plan into action to become, a big indestructible peni... a snake, he becomes a snake.
If it wasn't already incredible enough getting to see the entire school coming together to fight off a horde of vampires thanks to Buffy's plan. Buffy brandishes the knife she used to gut Faith, she taunts The Mayor with it, "You remember this? I took it from Faith. Stuck it in her gut... Just slid in her like she was butter... You wanna get it back from me... Dick?"
Buffy is still very much in control of the situation, her plan going exceedingly well. What follows is a high octane chase through the halls of Sunnydale High, where Buffy leads The Mayor to the library that has been rigged with explosives. Diving through a window leaving The Mayor trapped within the library, Buffy and Giles set off the explosives, bringing an end to The Mayor and his wicked schemes. Also bringing an end to Sunnydale High where we have spent three whole years falling in love with this incredible show. Badass.
