Yesterday Buzzfeed released a list of 27 Reasons Why Darla Is The Best Vampire In the Buffyverse. "Ha!" I hear you snort! "Not bloody likely!!" I couldn't agree more. Darla is, to quote my colleague Courtney, "wallpaper glue." Here are 23 vampires from the Buffyverse that are better than Darla. Unequivocally. Inarguably. Empirically.

23. Vampire Xander: For being marginally better than human Xander. Who is the worst.

22. These Two Vamps From Once More With Feeling: For that sweet, sweet grapevine action.

21. The Vampire Formerly Known As Cox-Arquette: Because he's the original (better) Jesse McNally.
