Willow and Tara in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Willow and Tara are characters in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television show. Both also appear in the games based on the series. Willow appears in the first Buffy game, which is set during the television season that she falls in love with Tara and comes out as a lesbian. Tara’s first game appearance is in 2003’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds, which is set in the show’s fifth season. It is also the first game in the series that allows players to control characters besides Buffy, including Willow. At one point in the game, Willow saves Tara, a scene which is shown here and in the image below.

Later in the game, Willow has to battle an alternate version of Tara (Vampire Tara). A video for that is here (Tara appears around 39:00)
