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.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Quotes

Buffy: Oh, the one that nearly bit me mentioned something about 'kissing toast'. He lived for kissing toast.
Giles: You mean, Kakistos?
Buffy: Maybe it was taquitos. Maybe he lived for taquitos. What?
Giles: Kakistos.
Buffy: Is that bad?
Giles: Kakistos is Greek, it means the worst of the worst. It's also the name of a vampire so old that his hands and feet are cloven.

Spike: The last time I looked in on you two, you were fighting to the death. Now you're back making googly-eyes at each other like nothing happened. Makes me want to heave.
Buffy: I don't know what you're talking about.
Spike: Oh, yeah. You're just friends.
Angel: That's right.
Spike: You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love till it kills you both. You'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children. It's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's b****, but at least I'm man enough to admit it.
