The Wishverse Sunnydale was different from the mainstream Sunnydale. It's seen in the alternate timeline created by Anyanka after Cordelia Chase wished Buffy Summers had never moved there.
- The residents of Sunnydale are much more aware of the supernatural. They didn't wear bright colored clothes so as not to attract vampires.
- The town has instituted a curfew and teenagers aren't allowed cars.
- School is canceled once a month to hold memorial services. The school holds social events, such as the Winter Brunch, during the day instead of evenings.
- Angel has been imprisoned and tortured at the Bronze, and bears several prominent burn scars on his chest.
- Buffy is a far more battle-hardened, fatalistic, and cynical individual, who is more willing to kill and lives for nothing but her Slayer duties.
