In 1998, she gave it to Buffy so she could use it to stake Angelus if Willow Rosenberg's Ritual of Restoration did not work. While facing the vampire, Buffy wielded the stake to threaten him, until she noticed a trap had been set against her friends, and left in attempt to save them.
Buffy kept Mister Pointy even after the incident. When reflecting about not having her Slayer powers, Buffy described a future in which she would show people the stake after having it bronzed. She also mentioned using it to slay a vampire working for Richard Wilkins, and that she kept it by her bed alike a "safety blanket". When her roommate at college, Kathy Newman, looked into a bag in Buffy's closet, Mister Pointy was one of the many weapons hidden there.
