Badassery (just a few moments off the top of my head):
- Buffy's impaled by a sword, then rises up - "I want you to Get. Out. Of. My. Face." - to swing the Scythe and knock half a dozen turokahn over the edge of the cliff.
- Just how many demons, gods, and vampires has she killed? Damn.
- The girl views windows as things she jumps through in order to keep on fighting. Obstacles aren't obstacles because she'll smash through them. This includes glass doors ('This Year's Girl' and 'Revelations').
- Turokhan; barbed wired beheading as she grits her teeth. Welcome to Thunderdome.
- "You're a god, make it stop," as she keeps bashing Glory over the head with a hammer so heavy Spike can't even lift it.
- Walking into a house, without her superpowers, to face an insane vampire who's already murdered his Council captors and is holding her mother captive. She goes in alone, terrified (she's already run away from him once before). She defeats him...with the power of her mind. Holy water + pills.
- "The arm's hurt." She punches Sunday across the room with said hurt arm. "It's not broken." Turns her back on Sunday, twirls her stake, showing off, then flings it across the room into Sunday's heart.
- The only way to kill the Gnarl is to destroy his eyes. Buffy has no weapons. What does she do? Grits her teeth and uses her thumbs. Yes, gross. But badass.
- "I'm beyond tired. I'm beyond scared. I'm standing on the mouth of hell, and it is gonna swallow me whole. And it'll choke on me. We're not ready? They're not ready. They think we're gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I'm done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Oh, we'll give 'em one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now. 'Cause we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on, we won't just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them, and cut out their hearts one by one, until The First shows itself for what it really is. And I'll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that's us. Any questions?"
What are some of Buffy's greatest BADASS moments?
And also, is anyone else not getting LJ email notificiations?
