The Idiot's Guide to Continuity on BtVS. A humorous "Dos and Don'ts" list for Buffy writers, courtesy of Boils and Blinding Torment.
" a) other, normal girls cannot fight like Buffy. Other, normal, 90 pound waifs should not be able to pound a stake home. Nor should they be able to restrain a vampire.
b) while men are traditionally stronger than women, mortal men should not be able to knock out a vampire, nor should they be able to hit it with such a force that it spins in the air, with one punch.
c) given that a Slayer's super punches knock out vampires, it is therefore logical to think that the same punch applied, with near the same force, would decapitate a human, or at least kill them."
