The Big Bad has gained incredible power! All is lost! But suddenly a spot of hope appears. Their source of power is destroyed, their demonic benefactor has been defeated, or they have otherwise been reduced to their previous form. This does not necessarily mean death or even powerlessness for the villain, just regression. Usually followed by one of two things: either a one shot villian is subsequently destroyed, or Status Quo is God and the recurring villain escapes to fight again. Compare Brought Down to Normal. Not related to Broken Angel.
