Monsters of Buffy, part 2 - MMM

This is the continuance of my Monsters of Buffy, part 1 and today I'm listing
the cutest monsters of all seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
(Cinnamon man pointed out that writing about both my favorite and my scariest
monsters of Buffy, for my first installment of May Monster Madness, might have been
a bit of a long post - so I'm cutting what was intended to be one post into two this time.
The final post, listing the grossest monsters of Buffy, will be posted on May 17th.)

Now, without further ado, let's get kicking with the 4 cutest monsters of Buffy:

Irish fear demon. Fear itself, season 4.

Fear itself might be my favorite Buffy episode ever. It is a Halloween episode, complete with the Scooby gang in costumes, a (extra) scary house and Giles toting a chain saw! The monster plaguing the frat house hosting the Halloween party feeds on people's fears, and makes those fears manifest. It is all pretty scary until the very end, when it turns out this little demon is not even a foot tall, and Buffy squashes him under foot.

Demon Giles. A New Man, season 4.

Giles is Buffy's watcher and plays the wise father figure for most of the series. But in season 4 he is getting left a little out of the loop, when Buffy is getting to know a new mentor, Prof. Walsh. On a particularly bad day Giles is first humiliated by Walsh, then turned into a demon by an old "frenemy". His day only gets worse when the Scooby gang thinks he's been hurt by the very monster he has been turned into, and set out to hunt him down.

Clem (Clement). Season 6 and 7.

Clem is an anomaly in the Buffyverse, a kind and caring demon whose only evil trait seems to be that he occasionally eats cats. He is a friend of Spike's, shows up at one of Buffy's birthday parties and is even invited to Xander and Anya's wedding.
One of the best scenes involving Clem is him trying to entertain Dawn with a chips tasting test in season 6. He also shares a sweet moment with Buffy in one of the last episodes of the whole series, when he's in his car headed out of town before the anticipated destruction.

Vampire Harmony. Season 4 and 5.

During the first three seasons of Buffy, Harmony Kendall was one of the annoying popular kids at Sunnydale high, and a total airhead. But in the last moments of season 3 she is turned into a vampire - and Harmony as a vampire is great.
She hooks up with Spike, and their pairing is both painful and hilarious to watch. She collects unicorns, and in one episode she wants to go and "vamp" Antonia Banderas... She is also in the best Buffy fight scene ever recorded: Xander vs Harmony.

 While I was putting this post together I realized that, except for including Willow in my
first Buffy post, I have been trying to look past members of the main cast - although many
of them are beloved monsters; Angel (vampire), Spike (vampire), Anya (demon/ex-demon)
and Oz (werewolf). So hereby, consider them all having received honorable mentions!

It's a blog hop, join us!
