Reality alteration was the result of a spell or ritual in which the very nature of a dimension was altered, 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.


  • 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.
