If you're a true Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, chances are you know the meaning of "it gave me the wig," and you've likely even incorporated it into your own vocabulary at some point. You can also sing along to all of the songs in "Once More with Feeling," and know that Anya (a once badass demon) has a strange fear of bunnies. But being a true Buffy fan is more than belting out, "I will walk through the fire," or knowing how to decode Slayer slang.

You've likely noticed things from re-watching the show over the years that the average viewer missed, stumbling upon rewarding Easter eggs, a connection you just now made, or even the occasional baffling element. But despite a few plot holes or completely nonsensical elements that don't add up, you will always love the show to pieces. And true Buffy fans know that even though the show never won an Emmy for Best Series (which was an outrageous snub), it will always take gold in our hearts.

Or even the extended gang (with the exception of Tara), for that matter. Before Dawn's arrival as the key in Season 5, not a single member of the gang had any siblings, including Oz and Cordelia. Seems like a geeky little sister of Willow's or a little brother that tormented Cordelia could have been written in, just for believability's sake.

The Bronze, the main hang out of the Scooby gang besides the library, was crawling with high schoolers, yet mysteriously served alchoholic drinks and was the scene of multiple vampire attacks. You'd think it would be shut down due to either of those things, but it mysteriously remained open through it all, without even a citation (or security guard) in sight.

"Hello, I'm God." I mean, he *is* the great and powerful Oz.

Buffy has three different birthdays throughout the run of the show. Buffy's birthday was celebrated in an annual episode around January 19 every year, but her school records tell a different story. They indicate that she was born on October 24, 1980 - and yet later in the show's run, she's born on May 6, 1979. So which one is it?
