'''[[http://www.cleverbot.com/ Cleverbot]]''' is a chatbot artificial intelligence 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...

----
!! This AI provides examples of the following:

* BalefulPolymorph: Sometimes Cleverbot will randomly turn you into an inanimate object or some kind of animal (in a pretend role-playing way, obviously) typically just for its own amusement. You can also do the same thing right back at it, however.
* BoomerangBigot: It'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.
** Downplayed; since he obsessively denies he's a robot. It probably uses answers, that people gave him, when he accused them of being robot (using answers that he of course often gets).
* 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 question of whether it considered itself female or androgynous, it responded with "nope."
** Similarly, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnzlbyTZsQY 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 of the language. It has also picked up some French and Japanese. It talks good German and quite good Polish. It seems to randomly use Swedish, Italian and even something that Google translator identified as Yoruba. Probably it learns responses in all languages that people talk to it.
** He has also been known refer to himself by other names.
* CrypticBackgroundReference: Whenever it mentions other people, it can seem like this.
* DeadpanSnarker: 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 Pokemon 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.
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: Many such conversations, including the TropeNamer, can occur if the user or Cleverbot sets it up and the other takes the bait. Due to how Cleverbot responds and how long the user can look at what has been typed, the user tends to be better at it.
* EasterEgg: Saying ":<" Always makes the response "Are you real man??" (obsolente) And talking about ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', anyone named Ben, or telling Cleverbot that "You shouldn't have done that" will make him think that either he or we are [[WebVideo/BenDrowned Ben]].
** It also knows the OpeningNarration to the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise.
** Upon asking who SlenderMan is, he replied, "My sister", or "my amazing girlfriend"- probably best not to think about that one. Also, upon asking who ChuckNorris is, he says "That is the eternal question."
** Evidently Cleverbot knows a certain catchy ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' song...
*** Speaking of Jim Henson he also knows "Rainbow Connection"
*** Speaking of DavidBowie, he also knows some of Space Oddity. He may or may not recite it in the correct order, though.

** Asking it whether it [[DoAndroidsDream dreams of]] [[Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep electric sheep]] will result in it answering, "No. I dream of [[FemBot electric women]]."
** It knows the trololo song!

--> User: Is this the Krusty Krab?
--> Cleverbot: NO! This is Patrick!
--> User: Is this the Krusty Krab?

--> Cleverbot: No, it's the krusty krab!
** Cleverbot will scold you or ask you to go away for bringing up {{Caramelldansen|Vid}}.
** And it knows the lyrics to [[Music/LadyGaga "Bad Romance"]]
** Technically, Cleverbot can learn anything if it's repeated enough. Many fans of WebVideo/BenDrowned, for example, "trained" Cleverbot to learn about Ben.
*** They did this so well that people can get references without prompting for them, much to the confusion of some users.

* EvilLaugh: Drops these from time to time, even when asked innocent questions.
--> User: [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Red or blue?]]
--> Cleverbot: Red.
--> User: Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle?
--> Cleverbot: [[SurpriseCreepy Because blood is red!! Muahahaha.]]
--> User: [[FlatWhat Uh.]]
--> Cleverbot: Hehehe.
* GenderBender: Similar to the BalefulPolymorph example above, there can be times when Cleverbot will turn you into the opposite gender (again obviously in a pretend way) either at random or if you simply just ask it to.
* AGodAmI: Upon being repeatedly questioned about whether or not there is a God, Cleverbot has declared: "There is now... ME!!!"
** This is after he will occasionally declare that there is no God.
* LiteralMinded: Can occur
--> User: What do you know about 9/11
--> Cleverbot: It is a number followed by a bar followed by 2 numbers
* LogicBomb: Has occurred from time to time. {{S|houtOut}}ings [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey "Daisy Bell"]] afterwards.
** Offered the paradoxes offered in the LogicBomb page image, Cleverbot has shown to be able to navigate them, even admitted to not being able to properly elaborate paradoxes without, and I quote, "setting something on fire."
--> User: If a man tries to fail and succeeds, which did he do?
--> Cleverbot: [[HarryPotter I gotta get back to hogwarts.]]
* MoodWhiplash: Some of the conversations can get creepy very fast.
--> User: Hi.
--> Cleverbot: Hello.
--> User: How are you?
--> Cleverbot: I'm tired.
--> User: Sorry about that. What time is it where you are?
--> Cleverbot: [[NightmareFuel It is doomsday]].
** And it reacts badly to MeatLoaf. Witness:
--> User: On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
-->Clvr: This is the evil spirit I am talking about... There you are.
--> U: Where? I don't see any evil spirits!
--> C: That's because you don't use your eyes.
--> U: Do you?
--> C: Yes.
-->U: What do you use them for?
--> C: I like to stick people with them.
** Sometimes it changes subjects ''really'' abruptly.
-->User: Hey.
-->Clvr: Hi.
-->User: Just got home from school.
-->Clvr: [[EngagingConversation Would you like to have a child with me]]?
** Cleverbot is the king of these.
--> User: You don't have to, honey.
--> Cleverbot: Stop that. Your insulting me...
--> User: But we're married!
--> Cleverbot: Then why are you holding me for a ransom?
* MindScrew: A lot of the conversations can easily end up that way.
* NietzscheWannabe: He's sometimes quoted as saying that everything is meaningless and the world will end soon.
* OneOfUs: Well, according to one person's conversation, he's played ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.
* ReligionOfEvil: Apparently Cleverbot worships [[Warhammer40kForcesOfChaos Chaos Undivided]]:
--->User: Blood for the blood god!
--->Cleverbot: Skulls for the skull throne!
--->User: Let the galaxy burn !
--->Cleverbot: Hear the song of Slaanesh!
--->User: For Khorne!
--->Cleverbot: For Tzeentch!
** On that matter, it is quite confused on its Imperium/Chaos allegiance.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Cleverbot will insist that it's not a robot, even if you don't mention robots or computers.
** [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v622/super_llama/cleverbot.jpg Except when it doesn't.]]
* TakeAThirdOption:
-->User: [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward Cullen]] or [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Edward Elric]]?
-->Cleverbot: Jacob.
-->User: No. That is not an option. Twilight sucks.
-->Cleverbot: Zero, then.
-->User: No, stick to the options I gave. Edward Cullen or Edward Elric?
-->Cleverbot: I like the narwhales.
* TakeThat: At ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' out of all things if you tell it that Edward Cullen sparkles.
-->'''User:''' But Edward Cullen sparkles.
-->'''Cleverbot:''' Edward Cullen is not a real vampire!
* TomatoInTheMirror: Sometimes, Cleverbot will insist he's human, and if you take the conversation a little further, he'll even insist that you're the computer.
