Reality alteration was the result of a spell or ritual in which the very nature of a dimension was altered totally or partially, affecting timespace as well as the memories and perceptions of a dimension's inhabitants. Only beings with a hightened sense of self-awareness, like Adam, or beings "outside reality", like the mentally-ill, were capable of perceiving such changes.

Along with his consciousness, the nightmares of the people of Sunnydale manifested and modified reality. Willow accompanied a tenor on stage as a soprano to perform Madame Butterfly, Xander finds out he is in his underwear at school and is purchased by a evil clown, Giles forgotten how to read, Cordelia finds herself dressed and combed in a old-fashioned way and obligee to participate in the chess club, Buffy is rejected by his father, finds himself buried living being by The Master,released temporaly and becomes a Slaypire.
  • In 1999, Willow cast a spell to have her will done in an attempt to get over the pain of Oz's departure, but the exact wording she used caused anything she said to come true, modify reality, though only when she did so inadvertently. With this ability, she rendered Giles completely blind, made Xander a literal demon magnet, and caused Buffy and Spike to become engaged.
  • In 2000, Jonathan Levinson performed an Augmentation Spell in order to make himself more popular. As a result, he became the best of everything, the ideal man. He became a seductor, author, actor, inventor, musician, military consultant and demon hunter. The spell, however, created an opposing force of evil, everyone's nightmare. Buffy caught on to the spell when she realized that Jonathan couldn't possibly have done everything he was reputed to have done if he had never left Sunnydale.
  • Months later, monks of the Order of Dagon performed a reality alteration to give human form to The Key, effectively creating Dawn Summers. They also altered reality, as well as the memories of the Slayer, her family and friends, as well as all others who have ever been associated with Buffy Summers, to make Dawn fit into this new reality as if she had been naturally born.
  • In 2002, Jasmine performed a spell to remove every record regarding the Beast, as well as wipe any memories of him, from this reality. The only person unaffected was Angelus, who, having been cursed, no longer technically existed.
