— Buffy to Bex
Buffy is strong and confident and she is not afraid to speak up for herself. She supports her friends but at the same time offers them good advice when she thinks they're making a mistake. For example, she advised Andi against making bracelets for Jonah Beck. Buffy is very competitive in everything including sports. She is the only sporty member of their group.
In "Shhh!," Buffy's speed during gym impresses the coach who asks her to join the track team. After joining the team, she proves turns out to be so competitive that she even refuses to let her teammates take their turns during a relay. They end up getting disqualified. The coach advises her to stop getting in her own way.
Buffy's competitive nature shows up again in Dancing in the Dark when Marty tries to ask her out during Andi Mack's dance party but she just tries to one-up him. She tells Cyrus that competition and winning is everything for her but promises to try harder.
Buffy faces a big challenge in It's Not About You when the vice principal forces her to change her hair. Apparently a kid failed a test because Buffy's big curly hair was blocking him. Buffy is not happy about it but is afraid to confront the vice principal and get suspended. She tells Buffy and Cyrus that wishes she could talk to her mom about it but her mom is still overseas. She changes to straight hair and she loves it but struggles to keep it. She even accidentally burns it and gives herself a bald spot. Since she doesn't have anyone to talk to, she starts confiding in Bex without telling Andi what she's going through. Andi is furious at first when she realizes that Buffy is spending more time with Bex than her. But after learning the truth, she sympathizes with Buffy. After the incidence, Buffy gets the courage to stand up to the vice principal by switching back to curly hair. After the confrontation, it turns out the kid who had complained about Buffy's hair doesn't even sit behind her and was just giving an excuse for failing the test.
In She Said, She Said, Buffy pushes Andi to tell Jonah Beck the truth about Amber cheating on him. At the track field, Buffy meets again with Marty from the party and they reintroduce themselves to each other. Buffy is proud to be the fastest but Marty tells her that she's only the fastest girl. He is the fastest boy and faster than her. This doesn't sit well with our competitive Buffy. So, she goes to great lengths to outperform Marty in everything during exercises as well as impromptu races.
Buffy's competitive nature gets the best of her and threatens to drive a wedge between her and Marty. She meets with Marty from the party on the hallway and they both start exchanging the usual flirty wits. Andi and Cyrus overhear the conversation and are convinced that Buffy and Marty are flirting but Buffy doesn't want to admit that she could possibly have a crush on Marty. To prove it, Buffy asks Marty to race, a real race this time, to prove which one is faster once and for all. They agree to race the following day. On the day of the race, Buffy realizes that one of her track shoes is missing. She concludes that Marty took it to sabotage her. Cyrus advises her not to jump to conclusion or do anything she'd regret. Instead, the next day Buffy gets hold of Marty's sneakers and dumps them in girls' toilets. While Cyrus is questioning her about the move, Marty arrives and gets mad at Buffy for ruining her sneakers. Marty insists that he didn't take Buffy's shoe. Cyrus proves Marty is telling the truth by showing Buffy the shoe she left in his mom's car. Buffy feels guilty. Marty asks Buffy what she has to say and she says she will replace the shoes. Marty leaves in disappointment. Cyrus then explains to Buffy that Marty expected her to say she's sorry. Buffy realizes that she may have gone too far this time.
