An Apocalypse is defined as specific occurrence which has an exceptionally destructive effect on the human race. The final outcomes of doomsday events may range from a major disruption of human civilization, to the extinction of human life, to the destruction of the planet Earth, to the annihilation of the entire universe. The Buffyverse has featured several events that almost caused an apocalypse, which have, thus far, always been averted thanks to the efforts of the [[Scooby Gang]] and the [[Angel Investigations]] team.

32DaysWithoutAnApocalypse

In Arashmaharr, apocalypses were a common event.

When I saw you stop the world from, you know, ending, I just assumed that was a big week for you. It turns out I suddenly find myself needing to know the plural of apocalypse.
―Riley Finn[src]

Apocalypse was a specific occurrence which had an exceptionally destructive effect on the human race. The final outcomes of doomsday events varied from a major disruption of human civilization, to the extinction of human life, to the destruction of Earth, to the annihilation of the entire universe.

Several events that almost caused an apocalypse were averted thanks to the efforts of the Scooby Gang and the Angel Investigations team. However, the end of magic not only came to pass, but was actually caused by its respective leaders Buffy Summers and Angel.
