Simulated sunlight

Willow attempts to recite incantation

The Simulated Sunlight spell was an attempt made by Willow Rosenberg to create a simulated floating ball of sunlight. The idea was to help Buffy Summers dust vampires using this light source.

Willow stated that the spell was very sensitive and that any non-ritual words can disrupt it. Anya, however, ignored this and continued to ask questions, which resulted in a massive argument that led to Olaf being released from the crystal he was trapped in after Willow ordered Anya to "let it go."



  • "Spirits of life, I invoke thee. Let the gloom of darkness part before you. Let the moonlight be made pale by your presence. Spirits of light, grant my wishes..."

Behind the Scenes

Willow Sun Spell

Willow performs the sun-spell to kill a vampire.

In the video game adaption Chaos Bleeds, which takes place in the fifth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, while playing Willow, the player can generate a ball of sunshine to defeat vampire enemies, though without the need of the preparation shown on the series.
