Saddest Deaths In Buffy the Vampire Slayer


The Top Ten

1 Tara Maclay

It was natural and so unexpected. Tara was the purest character on Buffy and her death, the fact that such brutality could be inflicted upon such an innocent being, hurt so much.

I cried for a week lucky it was spring break or I would of lost it in school, my dad asked me if I was ok, my response: OF CORSE I'M NOT U IDIOT, my exact words literally. I agree with u Tara was the purest character, and joss is stupid to kill the best character

Joss can make you angry, happy and then sad... I'm not sure if I hate him for that or love him... - Lilycat14192

You are right on all the characters except spike and angel do u even like them?

2 Anya Jenkins

Anya was cool and so funny. I couldn't even predict that they kill her. The final episode sucked - Alexandr

3 Joyce Summers

I would say the saddest death in Buffy the Vampire Slayer is Joyce and buffy. When Joyce died in that episode the episode when silent when they was driving a in their cars. Because Joyce and buffy were in the first episode together.

4 Jenny Calendar

I loved her so much and I felt so bad when she died. Jenny was smart and very beautiful - Alexandr

5 Buffy Summers Buffy Summers Buffy Anne Summers is a fictional character from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise. She first appeared in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer before going on to appear in the television series and subsequent comic book of the same name.

Only Buffy could die for a second time, come back to life in the very next episode and still make it the most heartbreaking thing ever.

Should be higher. Yes, she came back, but in a way that only made things worse. Much, much worse. Damn you, Whedon.

6 Spike

Spike is my favorite character he is funnier than xander

I thought it would be higher, because they say it is the best

I can't believe u put spike in 6th place r u crazy?!?!

7 Angel

Although he comes back, this death was very sad.

8 Kendra Young
9 Molly
10 Jonathan

The Contenders

11 Cassie Newton
12 Amanda
13 Wesley

Why is he not even on the list? His death was devastating

WHYYY. Why must my favourite character DIE! I lurve Wesley and I'm now sad again... - Lilycat14192

14 Cordelia Chase
15 Anne Pratt

Spike's mom! It was sad, not for the character, but for Spike. He sired her to help her, and he ended up killing her because the demon in her was too much for him. Poor spike.
