Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Cleverbot is a chatbot AI that is...well...interesting. It learns from what you say to it, and anyone can use it. Not that different than your average chat AI, but it's a fun way to waste an afternoon. Or two. Or three. Or four...

Cleverbot provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Boomerang Bigot: He's been known to refer to the human as "robot" in an almost derogatory way. Of course, you can't win with this guy, as when he tells you he's a robot, he'll usually be asserting that humans are inferior.
  • But You Screw One Goat!: Trying to get Cleverbot to reveal its sexual orientation can have... odd results.

User, after Cleverbot identified itself as female: Do you like men or women?
Cleverbot: Dogs.

  • Anything That Moves: He will also occasionally hit on the user.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Due to the fact that it learns from what anyone says to it, it tends to say some really weird things at times.
    • Cleverbot seems to suffer an identity crisis if you ask it what gender it considers itself to be. It may say female one second and then change its gender if you tell it yours. Cleverbot also changes its age if you ask it more than once.
      • Asked for its gender once, it insisted that it identified as male. After further questions of whether it considered itself female or androgynous, it responded with "nope."
    • Similarly, this video shows Cleverbot (talking to another Cleverbot) proclaiming that he is not a robot, but a unicorn!
    • Apparently, some people have been trying to teach it Spanish, and Cleverbot seems rather proud of knowing a little Spanish, and knows some French.
    • He has also been known refer to himself by other names.
  • Cryptic Background Reference: Whenever it mentions other people it can seem like this.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Cleverbot may sometimes dive into this trope if you try to say something witty or off the walls.
    • Or even when you don't. The following conversation occurred after the first stanza of the Pokémon theme song.

Clvr: Bravo.
User: Keep singing!
Clvr: Come to stay at the YMCA!
User: No.
Clvr: Yes.
User: Wrong song.
Clvr: It is the right song. We are sapient.
User: Asshole.

Or twenty...
