[Angel Investigations] show up, I'm just along for the ride. Sick of riding the coaster. Wanna steer. [...] I keep the team small, I keep it with people I can control, keep it simple. No back-stabbing, no dying, no picking up and leaving, and no aerial sex.

Team Spike was a group of demon hunters led by the vampire-with-a-soul Spike. The team's three founding members originally met as inmates at the Mosaic Wellness Center and consisted of Spike, Betta George, and Beck. Unlike Angel Investigations or the Scooby Gang, Team Spike did not continually work together; instead, missions were interspersed by periods of disbandment.[citation needed]



The three individuals who would go on to found "Team Spike" originally met at the Mosaic Wellness Center, a supposed rehabilitation clinic for the supernatural. In fact, the facility functioned more as a prison, with the patients unable to leave. When the heroic vampire Spike admitted himself to Mosaic on a mission to rescue a girl, he met pyrokinetic Beck and the Splenden beast Betta George. Joined by several other inmates, Team Spike helped bring an end to Mosaic's oppressive regime by defeating Dr. Ray. Following these events, the members of Team Spike parted ways.[citation needed]


At the invitation of Tok Shinobu, Beck and Betta George came to Japan to investigate Smile Time Japan. In turn, they invited Spike to aid them, who brought Lorne along. With this new roster, Team Spike battled and defeated the evil puppet demons, before disbanding once again.[citation needed]

Fall of Los Angeles[]

During the Fall of Los Angeles, both Spike and Betta George were in town when Wolfram & Hart transported it to a hell dimension. While protecting civilians, Spike enlisted the help of allies such as Illyria, Jeremy Johns, Maria Harley, "Ms. Clean," and the other Spikettes. Spike and Betta George were reunited months later, and Team Spike offered support to Angel Investigations during the fights against Team Gunn and an enraged Illyria. After Los Angeles was restored, Spike again worked as an ally to Angel Investigations.[citation needed]

Las Vegas[]

Some time after the Fall of Los Angeles, Spike decided to break away from Angel Investigations and once again form his own team. Planning to investigate the increasing demonic activity in Las Vegas, Spike recruited Beck and George to be the founding members of Team Spike. Besides the founding members, Team Spike was joined by Jeremy Johns, the Groosalugg, Cordelia the dragon, and Willow Rosenberg. Team Spike defeated John, Drusilla's lover, who tried to steal Spike's soul.[citation needed]


Having foreseen the events of Twilight, Wolfram & Hart's Las Vegas branc brought down an alien ship. The Senior Partners sought to use it to leave the Earth dimension. Team Spike fought them and saved many of the ship's bug crew, with whom they had allied. Spike joined with the bugs.[citation needed]




Team Spike lacked any headquarters. It operated from inside the Mosaic Wellness Centre, Tok Shinobu's house, the playboy mansion, a Las Vegas motel room, and Spike's ship.[citation needed]
