* TheAtoner: A fairly popular line of thinking near the end was that they deserved their impending annihilation from the Halo Array due to their failure to uphold the Mantle of Responsibility and protect the other races of the galaxy. This is why Monitors attached to the Halos have names like ''Guilty'' Spark, ''Penitent'' Tangent, and ''Abject Testament''.

-->'''Guilty Spark:''' The history of all Forerunners was now lost to us. We relied upon the permanence of the Domain to preserve our record of the events that led to this point. But without that record, would future civilizations know anything about us? Or only of our weapons? My fellow Monitor, 049 Abject Testament, had only one comment on this before we went our separate ways.\\
'''Abject Testament:''' We deserve to be forgotten.\\
'''Spark:''' Perhaps...perhaps.

* NeglectfulPrecursors: Well, it turns out it was a bad idea to leave around enormous superweapons with only [[GoMadFromTheIsolation one Monitor to supervise them for a hundred millennia]]. And to leave samples of an evil plague inside it too. Well, that part was because the Monitors were still running tests on them for cures in case the Flood ever returned. But no progress appears to have been made.
