‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ versus ‘Supernatural’: Who will win in the battle of the best? Read below to find out.
There’s no denying that the Winchester brothers and Buffy Summers can both put up a fight. But in a battle between Buffy and ‘Supernatural’, who will win? Everyone’s beloved vampire slayer or the demon-hunting brother duo?
- Buffy was the original vampire slayer
- The Winchester brothers from ‘Supernatural’ have never lost a fight
- Buffy V/s ‘Supernatural’ – Who would win in a battle?
‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ premiered back in 1997 when vampires weren’t the popular hunks you see on television today. They were grotesque creatures that needed to be taken out, so the rest of the world could live in peace. Humans and vampires couldn’t coexist, and Buffy was destined to be a slayer and the saviour of her town, Sunnydale.
When ‘Supernatural’ started, it had a simple premise. Sam and Dean – two brothers who hunt supernatural beings across the country, while collecting clues to their missing father’s whereabouts. Somewhere between travelling across the country and killing demons, vampires, and other supernatural creatures, the brothers accept their destiny.
Buffy and the Winchester brothers are more alike than different because they’ve been through a similar journey. They’ve all been reluctant heroes who hoped to have normal lives but grew to embrace their future as saviours.
They’ll win a battle against a supernatural being any time, but what about when they’re up against each other? Keep reading as we decode which side will win in a Buffy V/s ‘Supernatural’ battle!

Buffy was the original vampire slayer
It’s been over 20 years since ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ aired on television, but it’s still regarded as a fan-favourite. It was ahead of its time and truly set a benchmark for the vampire genre shows that came after it. Created by Joss Whedon, Buffy as a series was action-packed and scary, incredibly intelligent, and stunningly captured the 90s era.
Our teenage slayer battles vampires and demons with help from fellow members of her Scooby Gang, friends Willow and Xander. The story is more than just the incessantly dramatic lives of teenagers, their ever-changing boyfriends (and girlfriends), and parties.
Joss Whedon explored themes of family, personal struggle, and the simple problems of life through his writing on the show. Buffy wasn’t just a powerful female warrior who could strike down any paranormal being. She was, above all, human, and the show didn’t fail to showcase that.
Unfortunately, we have to agree that Buffy can be amazing and still be quite dated. Remember the episode where Willow scanned an ancient text into the computer which leads to a demon on the Internet? You can’t compare that to the tribulations faced by Sam and Dean Winchester on their hunting trips. In the 90s, Buffy and the rest of her Scooby Gang could take down a vampire in no time, sure. But a group of teenagers couldn’t possibly be as experienced and skilled as the Winchester brothers.
The Winchester brothers from ‘Supernatural’ have never lost a fight
The CW’s ‘Supernatural’ introduced us to Sam and Dean 15 years ago, and we are yet to see their journey end.
The demon-hunting sibling duo has faced death, been resurrected and never really lost a fight. Whether it was a vampire or the yellow-eyed demon, Azazel, Sam and Dean have always led a fight to victory.
They prevented apocalypses, have been to hell and back, ensuring that there’s no being in the world that could be a match for them. But, in the recent seasons, fans saw them wage a war against the creator of all, God himself. Time will tell if the Winchester brothers will win their final battle, or die trying instead.
Unlike Buffy that focuses on an ensemble of characters, ‘Supernatural’ has usually placed its emphasis on Sam and Dean. But both shows have played a part in redefining television and the supernatural genre, in their own ways! So, to imagine a Buffy v/s ‘Supernatural’ scenario might not seem plausible, but we think we do have an idea about which universe is stronger.
Buffy v/s ‘Supernatural’ – Who would win in a battle?
Buffy and ‘Supernatural’ have similar mythologies. While the former mostly tackled with vampires, the latter has witnessed every malevolent creature you could think of. Buffy and the Winchesters were both destined to be saviours, but we can’t deny that Sam and Dean’s experience trumps Buffy’s.
She’s a fearless teenager, unafraid to fight anything that could be a threat to her town. But she’s young and doesn’t have the years of experience that Sam and Dean do. The brothers have proved their meticulous abilities and they even research every case. They’re well-prepared, well-armed, and understand the threats they’re facing every day.
In a battle between Buffy and ‘Supernatural’, it’s quite likely that Sam and Dean will win. But if they ever travel back in time and find themselves in the 90s, Buffy’s gang will be waiting for them!
