Buffy the Vampire Slayer is 20-years-old today!

In honor of this iconic WB/UPN series, we've rounded up the 10 best villains for you!


1. Spike

Before becoming a hero, Spike was a villain and it was pretty great. Watching his continued efforts to try and kill Buffy and her friends made for some nail-biting scenes, but his relationship with Buffy solidified him as one of TV's best vampires.

2. The Gentleman

The Gentleman
The Gentleman appeared on a Season 4 episode and forced everyone into silence. It made for an exciting episode that forced the Scooby gang to have their wits about them to take the down the new enemy.

3. Mayor Wilkins

Mayor Wilkins
Mayor Wilkins was a cunning individual who was on a quest for immortality. Part of what made him so great was his witty one-liners.

4. Caleb

Nathan Fillion portrayed Caleb, who turned out to be a charming individual. However, he did not like vampire slayers, so if you're a slayer of vampires, you should probably keep your distance.

5. Glory

Glory wanted to return home and had no qualms about destroying Sunnydale and wiping out the human race. Buffy died saving the world from her. It was heartbreaking.

6. The Master

The Master
The Master was a vampire who ruled the Hellmouth. He had the pleasure of killing Buffy on two occasions. Yup, he's scary as hell.
