Welcome to my nightmare.
―Dark Slayer[src]

The Dark Slayer was a copy of Buffy Summers created by the Dreamers in their reality.[1]


While traveling through the Dreamers' Realm, Buffy came across a doppelgänger of herself, resembling her perfectly aside from darker clothing, white hair, and paler skin. The Dark Slayer was able to match Buffy's every move and use the same weapons. Nonetheless, Buffy managed to defeat her.[1]

Powers and abilities[]

The Dark Slayer had an equal amount of health and Slayer power as Buffy and performed the same attacks as Buffy with the same amount of damage. She also could imitate any weapon that Buffy equipped and use it against her. The Dark Slayer was nearly invincible, able to survive stabbing and decapitation, while throwing her off the platform would just cause her to return to the surface undamaged. The only way to defeat her was with fire, which could be obtained with a hellfire vial.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

  • The Dark Slayer was a boss in the 2003 video game Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Xbox.
