Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the best supernatural dramas on television when it aired from 1997 to 2003. Throughout the course of seven seasons, there were several Big Bads that Buffy and the Scooby Gang had to grabble with. While some were definitely scary, there were others that were unworthy of the title. Here are all 8 of Buffy’s Big Bads ranked from worst to best:
Season four’s big bad, Adam, was anything but scary. Sure, he was super strong, but he didn’t really seem to have a definitive plan for defeating Buffy and her gang. It would have been more interesting if they had kept Professor Maggie Walsh, his creator, around for the duration of the season and had her be the big bad. Then she could have unleashed a bunch of franken-monsters on Buffy. Adam just didn’t seem to have what it takes to even take the Scooby gang on. He was too busy naval gazing all season to get a real army of demons together to really challenge the slayer.
