Acathla: Demon called forth to devour the world. Killed by a virtuous knight who pierced the demon’s heart before he could draw breath. Acathla turned to stone, and was entombed. If someone worthy (evil) pulls the sword from Acathla’s heart, having first smeared their hands with their own blood, Acathla will awake. He will then open his mouth to create a vortex, and suck the whole world into Hell. The only way to close the vortex is to shed the blood of the one who pulled out the sword. When Acathla’s tomb was dug up just outside of Sunnydale, Angelus awakened him. Willow managed to restore Angel’s soul, but it was too late, and Buffy had to send her lover to Hell in order to save the world.
Adam: Buffy described him as ‘The Terminator without the bashful charm.’ Designed by Professor Maggie Walsh, Adam was a Frankenstein’s monster created from demon, human and electronic parts. He was the first phase of project 314. Adam’s right arm was that of a Polgara demon. He did not need to eat, drink or sleep, as he had a powercore of uranium 235. Adam had a design flaw that caused him to murder Professor Walsh and Doctor Angleman. He then reanimated their bodies as zombie lab slaves, to aid him in the completion of project 314. He also killed Forrest. Buffy was only able to defeat him when the Scoobies performed an enjoining spell. He referred to Maggie Walsh as Mother.

She then flayed him alive and incinerated him. Willow tried to kill Andrew Wells and Jonathon Levinson as well, but was thwarted by Buffy, Xander and Anya. When her power began to drain, she went to see Rack, and killed him after absorbing all of his magic. Too strong even for Buffy, Willow was held in a binding field temporarily by Giles. She escaped, and drained him of the magic he had borrowed from a Devonshire coven. This good/natural magic put her back in touch with her feelings. Unable to cope, she went to Kingman’s Bluff to end the world. Here she raised the temple of Housapexa from the ground, but Xander defeated Black Magic Willow by telling her that he loved her. She found herself unable/unwilling to kill him, and allowed her grief to show.
