** Dr. Sauerkraut tries for this at first, then realizes half-way through that [[GenreSavvy this would be unfair to both his daughter's memory and her replica's psyche]], so instead he raises the replica to be her own self, only tangentially related to the original.

** The real one was in a coma beyond all hope for recovering. By some miracle she woke up, and called her dad out. A CainAndAbel relationship developed between the real daughter and the replacement, which ended tragically for everyone involved.
** When people learn of Dr. Sauerkraut's success, they want him to build replacements for their dead loved ones. The doctor complies, the people get what they want-- ''every single one of them''. Thus creating a race of robots that [[LovingAShadow can never live up to the originals]] and further depressing the body they were made for.

* '''Implied''': Alice Sauerkraut's father is mentioned to be a robotics expert who's not good at coping with [[DeadlyEuphemism things breaking]]. It is eventually revealed that Alice is a robot, though no WordOfGod mentions whether she always was this way or whether she was a replacement. Once Dr. Sauerkraut himself is met, the characters ask him the question - and the question is such a great BerserkButton that he must be restrained before he beats the asker within an inch of their life.

** Alternately (fourth one down), despite Dr. Sauerkraut's initial objections, the replica says she's fine with being exactly like Sauerkraut's daughter, since that is what she was designed for; she can't be her own self instead because "her own self" ''is'' Sauerkraut's daughter.
** Alternately (Sixth one down), brain damage from the accident means that the robot isn't his real daughter anymore.
* '''Parodied''': The replacement is obviously a robot, sporting "robot ears" and a built-in plasma cannon.
