Vampires! It’s the Buffy/Angel Character Tournament! (Quadrant A)

Welcome to the Buffy/Angel character tournament! This month marks the 25th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and to mark the occasion we’re publishing a number of new articles exploring the characters and themes of the show, along with some analysis devoted to specific episodes. There are some writers at TV Obsessive who seem to like Angel better, believe it or not, and there’s no reason to fight about it! Both shows are great.

But to take the opportunity to have some fun, here we present characters from both shows in a 64 character bracket tournament. It’s kind of like March Madness, but with vampires and you decide who wins!

So who is your favorite character in the Angelverse (or Buffyverse)? Will Buffy make it through to the end, or get knocked out early on against some dark horse? What about Angel? We honestly don’t know, but can’t wait to find out!

Below you will find a series of choices between two characters. Pick the one that you would like to see advance to the next round. It’s as simple as that! Now, are you choosing the “best” character or the most moral character, or the character you’d most like to have a beer with? Who cares? The criteria are basically up to you.

(N.B. Beer bad.)

Here in Round 1, three other polls are available, for Quadrant B, Quadrant C, and Quadrant D of the bracket. Be sure to vote in them all and check back to see how the races are shaping up until the final results set in at midnight EST on March 6.

Then it’s on to the next round of the tournament next week! There can be only one and the Highlander’s not an option…
