Okay, let me preface this by saying, I know that most people would’ve picked Angel over Spike in a heartbeat when it came to
better. I know what you’re thinking, Angel was Buffy’s true love and blah, blah, blah, but he wasn’t that perfect and he was definitely flawed.
Sure, Angel was ridiculously good looking and did love Buffy, but Spike was way more dedicated to her and to saving the world from evil. He was a bad boy with a heart of gold who was totally dreamy when you really took the time to appreciate him. He was just SO freaking awesome. Even if you wouldn’t have chosen him, there are a LOT of reasons why Spike was actually better than Angel, trust me. Here are the reasons I personally would have picked Spike as Buffy’s OTP.
That accent. Seriously, an English accent always, without a doubt, makes someone hotter. It’s not technically a fact, but it definitely makes me go weak in the knees when I hear it, so that has to count for something.
He wasn’t as cute as Angel, duh, but he was attractive. Yes, when it comes down to pure beauty, Angel wins every time, but Spike’s physical appearance wasn’t bad. In fact, he was pretty cute.
Blondes do have more fun. This should probably go into the looks category, but I feel like his hair deserved its own bullet point. Come on, the bleach blonde look was SO in during the ’90s and Spike was the epitome of a bleach blonde.
The guy could move. Remember when the whole town was under the influence of a demon that made them sing and dance? Well, Spike killed it when it came to the musical episode and for that he earns major points.
His look was rocker meets biker and it definitely worked. A hottie in a leather jacket… need I say more? If you remember correctly, Billy Idol stole
He was a total badass. Whether you liked him or not, Spike was a serious force to be reckoned with. He was
vampire when it came to killing slayers and he was really good at it. Even though I rooted for Buffy to kill the vampires on a weekly basis, when Spike defeated anyone, it always felt like a win.
Good vs. Evil. Spike might have started out as evil, but he eventually became really good. He was oddly one of the only characters that you really could count on to be purely good in the end. You never knew if Angel was going to swoop in to save the day, but you knew for certain that Spike would help take down the bad guys.
