Explanation of the conversion: Buffybot was written to be a Follower for Spike.
History: The Vampire Slayer Buffy Anne Summers spurned the romantic advances of the vampire Spike, who had learned that college student Warren Meers had built a robot lover named April. So Spike got Warren to build him Buffybot (I Was Made To Love You 5.15).
Warren was able to build Buffybot, and gave her to Spike about the time the real Buffy left Sunnydale to undertake a quest to learn her place in life. Although initially Spike and Buffybot spent time in their crypt enjoying each other's company, that night Buffybot snuck out to patrol for vampires, which was in her programming. She came across Alexander Lavelle Harris and Anya Jenkins, who thought she was the real Buffy. Spike then joined them trying to cover for Buffybot's strange actions, but they were interrupted by a small group of vampires. Buffybot and the others were able to slay the vampires, and Xander and Anya left. When Xander realized Buffy hadn't asked how her sister Dawn was (who was staying with others while Buffy was on her quest) Xander went back to find Buffy, only to discover Buffy and Spike on the ground of the graveyard... enjoying each other's company again. Xander rushed back to talk to his friends Willow
and Tara Maclay. They all agreed that Buffy was obviously delusional and they had to help her. Xander then confronted Spike at his crypt, but they were interrupted by the minions of Glorificus, who thought Spike might be the key because of the way Buffy had protected him. They knocked out Xander and took Spike. Buffybot was then alone and decided to find her programmed best friend Willow for help. Willow and the others teamed up with Buffybot, thinking she was Buffy, in planning an attack on Glory. When collecting weapons at Buffy's house they ran into the real Buffy who had just returned and realized the Buffy they had been with was a robot. The group, together with Rupert Giles, then tracked down Glory's lair and was able to free Spike, who they let live so they could learn what he had told Glory. Buffybot was knocked out of commission by a minion of Glory. The body was taken by Willow and examined.
Buffy then went to Spike pretending to be Buffybot to learn what he had said, but when she learned he had protected Buffy and Dawn she kissed him and left instead of staking him. Spike wouldn't get Buffybot back (Intervention 5.18).
''It wasn't one time. It was lots of times, and lots of different ways. I could make sketches.'' - Buffybot
During the final confrontation between Buffy and Glory over the key, Willow repaired Buffybot and sent her against Glory with the Dagon Sphere, hoping to wear Glory out a little before Buffy attacked. It worked but Glory was able to behead Buffybot (The Gift 5.22).
''Might be this. I heard it's supposed to repel you. So my guess is... you probably shouldn't touch it, either.'' - Buffybot
Spike then gathered the pieces of Buffybot and locked them in a trunk in his lair (Buffy The Vampire Slayer #43).
During an argument over how to carry on Buffy's patrolling without her Anya suggested they replace her with Buffybot. Willow agreed it was a good idea and took the parts from Spike. She had Xander do the mechanical repairs and she did the electronics and programming. It took three weeks before their first successful field test slaying a vampire. They had to increase Buffybot's resistance to harm, as it usually ended battles near breakdown. Spike got Willow to try to remove Buffybot's romantic programming towards him as it annoyed him (Buffy The Vampire Slayer #44).
Willow got Buffybot to pretend she was the real Buffy and protect Sunnydale as well as maintain guardianship of Dawn. Buffybot and the scoobies went on patrols together. Buffybot did well in the fighting, but not as well coming up with cleaver quips. Willow sent Buffybot with Dawn to Parent/Teacher Conferences, where she impressed the teachers (Bargaining Part 1 6.01).
''That'll put marzipan in your pie plate, bingo!'' - Buffybot
After a vampire learned that this Buffy was an imposter, he told a band of demon bikers who attacked Sunnydale. Although Buffybot tried to protect the town, she was severely damaged in the fight, and later had all her limbs torn from her body by the demons (Bargaining Part 2 6.02).
''Oh, I'm dangerously close to... systems failure! Must... oh! disengage from combat... so, oh! Willow can service me.'' - Buffybot
Note: The character sheet for Aprilbot is almost the same as Buffybot, just change "In love with Spike." to "In love with Warren." and April is a brunette not a blonde. It has been implied that Willow and Xander worked on the Buffybot to make it more durable in combat then Warren's original design.
