Xander starts out as a loveable dork, but by the end of the series, he's earned his badge as a evil-distroying Scooby. One of the great themes in Buffy is how the chosen slayer, Buffy, Buffy is just as influenced by her normal friends as they are by her power. Xander struggles against his sidekick status in several story arcs throughout the series. I love it when a show can question a trope (like the hero and her buddies) and do something new with it. Xander doesn't go to college with Buffy and Willow, but moves to his parent's basement and gets a job, living as a "townie." He's always to the left of convention, and this within a group that slays vampires. One of my favorite episodes is when Xander is split into two Xanders, the other played by the actor's real life twin. Also, who doesn't love Xander? He gets so many good lines.
