Even Gods suffer ignoble fates. Though many still maintain some level of pride, in many cases it has been chiseled away here through bad character development or polarizing receptions and their use as the Worf one too many times. Never forget many of these were once much greater than the position they have been forced to stoop to. Some even manage to claw their way out of it, but these are their descriptions of when they were at that low point.
Some of the Fallen were tried in the Court of the Gods and cast out, a ceremony that is rather less humiliating than the one given to the Disgraced. Others were caused to fall. All of them walked out on their own steam, heads low. They're allowed to go back into the Pantheon proper, but none of them stay until they have redeemed themselves. They have one point of pride- they're not as bad as the Disgraces. Valvatorez is the current head of the reformation department of here and Purgatory due to his work as a Prinny Instructor.
Unlike the Disgraces, various Fallen Gods are still linked with the rest of the Gods, as long as they can't cause a lot of trouble.
Fallen is now forming a mercenary group composed of Gods of this House, they can be hired by either the GUAC, GUAG, GUAE or GUAL, depending on special circumstances. However, in exchange for their missions, they should pay their debts to Fallen. The name of the faction is Fallens For Hire.
One day, they will have their Revenge. Also, they can't get up.
Having completed her duties as the Savior, Lightning thought she could return to the new world with everyone. However, she still had some duties to keep an eye on the gods in the Fallen. Lightning knew better than to question the Main House (she did mention it was better than in the House of Faith seeing the internal struggle with YHVH) so she made a seat in the Fallen to keep an eye on the souls, alongside Gabranth. On the plus side, she gets to see her sister, Serah every now and then in the mortal world.
Pit looked at Lightning with interest, because Lightning's voice reminded him of Palutena, minus her gadfly-like behavior. Pit usually visits her in the Fallen now. Lightning admits it makes guarding less lonely.
Lightning took one good look at Phineas Flynn and thought she heard the voice of Hope from him. Phineas took this in stride and began talking about all the gadgets and inventions he was planning. Isabella also comes to visit from time to time.
While not allowed in the House of Faith proper, she has made kinship with Artix von Krieger and Michael Carpenter. The former is due to their rescuing of souls as their mission, especially since Artix's powers comes from the spirits he saves from evil. The latter is due to Michael's never-wavering faith in god and the fact that there are holy beings that help give him some nice coincidences along the way.
To date, every chapter in the story of her life has been in service to one higher power or another. Though in service to the fal'Cie, she had chosen to defy that fate and strive for independence. The consequences of that choice have weighed heavy and so she is resigned to follow the commands of others.
Although once on opposite sides of a cosmic war, the Savior and the Judge hold no grudges against one another and keep a professional relationship in their duties. Lighting guides those who may rise from the Fallen, while Hell's Watchdog ensures no one else follows before their time.
Was a recent victim of the Polygon Man, due to his desire for revenge following his Battle Royale. What he did with Lightning was pit her in a battle with Sora, and forced the boy into his Space Paranoids armor, causing her to mistake him as a Sanctum Official and trigger a rivalry between the two.
Chance of Redemption: Unneeded. The Main House wishes that all Gods have a chance to be redeemed, or at least be able to return to the mortal world. Lightning's role is to assist them when they've earned their chance.
Not actually a member of the House of the Fallen itself, he was appointed to guard the gates of the House by Chaos. Anyone who tries to return to their seat without earning redemption deals with him. Or rather, he deals with them.
Chance of Redemption: Unneeded, this has become a secondary position since he now works two jobs. The paper work for the change was approved by Chaos and he operates mainly in the House of Justice as the God of Violent Judgement.
The one who assembles the Fallen Gods.
The Fallen, Patron of all Fallen Gods and God of Lucifer Metaphors (Megatronus Prime)
Lesser God (Greater God when acting in the lands of the Fallen)
Symbol: A stylized version of his own head as it appears in universal stream designate Primax
A devout follower of Unicron, having fallen from the service of Primus.
Used to be God of Entropy, until got a bit distracted by his new master.
Would also fit in nicely in the Villains pantheon, but with a name like his, he is placed here for the sake of convenient filing.
Despite what others may tell you, he's been Unicron's minion all along. In all continuities. During The Transformers: The Movie he was... out shopping for... lychees.
Chance of Redemption: Will be redeemed if he: A. renounces Unicron and returns to the service of Primus, B. manages to successfully kill an Optimus Prime or C. when he is the only one left in the Fallen, and thus there is nobody for him to be Patron of.
The Fallen Gods
Those who suffered bad fates yet still considered better than the Disgraces.
Malal, the Renegade Chaos God and God of Canon Discontinuity (The Outcast God, The Lost God, The Renegade God, Malice)
For a long time the other Gods of the pantheon wondered why Malal was with the Fallen. Some believed he was cast out of the Pantheon by the other Chaos Gods, others believed it was a self-imposed exile as part of a plan to kill the other Chaos Gods... But then it was revealed he was here because Games Workshop weren't entirely sure who owned the copyright to Malal so all mention of him was dropped, but if you know where to look you may fine references to him.
He also has been going by the name of "Malice" in the Warhammer40000 universe which may be a sign of his return to Canon but time can only tell.
...And no man looked to Malal then, save those that serve that which they hate, who smile upon their misfortune, and who bear no love save for the damned. At such times as a warrior's heart turns to Malal, all Gods of Chaos grow fearful, and the laughter of the Outcast God fills the tomb of space...
— Great Book of Despair
Chance of Redemption: When the copyright issues get resolved and Malal is reintroduced to canon or if the Sons of Malice get mentioned in a new codex.
Alas, the new Chaos Space Marines Codex has no mention of neither Malal nor the Sons of Malace. Maybe next time, most likely in 2017-2018.
Was going to get into the House of Commerce as the God of Self-Made Men, until it transpired that his wealth had ultimately brought him no fulfillment, at which point he got exiled himself here to exist in lonely splendor.
Chance of Redemption: Dependent on when he'll actually share his money with someone... especially in the House of Commerce.
Karen Minazuki in the House of Emotion wishes to share his money, as does Charlotte LaBouff.
Originally, Newt was accepted into the House of Technology when he falsely claimed to be a computer programmer. Five mintutes after his entry, all the computer terminals had switched off, Tony Stark's armour was malfunctioning, all of the Power Rangers were cut off from the Morphin' Grid, and Optimus Prime lay dead yet again. All Newt had done was turn on a light switch. Consequently, he was exiled to this Pantheon for their protection, even though he has done nothing wrong.
This is, of course, Just As Planned. The Council of Shadows is keeping him around in case they need to deal with any gadget-based opponent.
Fell here after a Senseless Sacrifice in Deception turned him into a extremist jackass dubbed as 'Dark Raiden'. Got his redemption ticket by getting a chance to be a good Raiden again and fix past things but he majorly screwed up overall, as his actions resulted in Sindel's demotion to The Fallen and let Quan Chi get a completely upper hand over most of the heroes via enslaving them and sending those who ascendednote Sub-Zero, Smoke, Kurtis Stryker and Kitana to the GUAE Re-Education Facility, effectively making them lose trust of him after discovering what caused them to end up there, and losing the trust of his apprentice Liu Kang, causing the Court of the Gods to consider demoting him further to the Disgraces (but they checked that putting him in the Disgraces would be a bad idea, considering Raiden's past as an ideal Big Good in the original timeline and for the fact that he saved the two worlds earlier) should he try to go to Purgatory and consider himself redeemed for what he did, thus he opted to stay here until he fully redeemed himself.
Because he can no longer act as the Big Good to the Mortal Kombat heroes, Thrall and Rachel Alucard took over his former position and undeniably they are doing a better job than Raiden.
Chance of Redemption: It all depends on how Mortal Kombat X would allow him to save the rest of the heroes and bolster the forces of good without any major screw ups... So far, he has been confirmed that he will appear in the game.
The Wiki Witch of the Web is the Anthropomorphic Personification of the evils of Tv Tropes. None know her real nature, though. Some say that she's the evil twin of Trope-Tan, while some say that she's Trope-Tan's split personality. What all agree is that the two can only be told apart by the Wiki Witch's constant Slasher Smile, and the constant feeling that something is wrong.
While not as powerful as Trope-Tan herself normally, every so often she can increase her power to the point that it equals or betters Trope-Tan's. Always, though, she carries the same Big Frickin' Quill that Trope-Tan carries, and uses it for the same things. Her most common means of attack and defense, however, are the Walls of Text.
Formerly the God of Magnificent Bastards, but was kicked out because he became a fool for love and fell hard. He was banished before Azula usurped the pantheon.
Is gloating heavily at Azula's banishment, and later at her demotion to the mortal realm.
He sometimes likes to comfort himself by saying "At least I'm better off than that loser of Edward".
He still holds to that confort especially even with Edward being the current King of Mary Suetopia; that's not exactly something to be proud of.
The Question actually has a theory on how Spike would end up in The Fallen: Spike was originally never meant to fall as he was a fun character regardless of how strong he was, but he became The Mole in the enemy camp for the forces of good due to the influences of Buffy and was found out by Melkor. Enraged at his Face-Heel Turn, Melkor offered Spike an ultimatum: Reject his new soul, or be cast out from the main pantheon. Melkor thought that Spike would never truly change, saying, "I know how this ends." However, Spike replied smugly, "No, you don't. But thanks for saying it." At that point, the army of Good charged into the area, beginning Melkor's long exile in the void, but not before he banished Spike for his betrayal. Most roll their eyes at such a preposterous idea as Spike was around far after Melkor's return from the void, but then again, some of the more paranoid gods say that he must have enlisted help from The Doctor to make it happen properly.
Chance of Redemption: With the image of vampires these days, things are looking for him to make vampires cool again.
Enemies: Absolutely hatesPeter Griffin, as his abuse of her is one reason that she's in The Fallen in the first place. She still takes pleasure in the fact that while she is only in The Fallen, and might be redeemed, he is in the Disgraces, with at this point zero chance. She hates Louis too, but a little less than Peter. Also is greatly opposed to the Status Quo and Haruhi Suzumiya for very good reasons, as it is what is keeping her in a life of great misfortune.
Ascended when the Family Guy universe started using her as the Designated Butt Monkey, and when even her mother didn't love her. And, due to the Status Quo, even when she called them out, or took a level in badass, it never stuck. Poor girl is now a Yandere who will stalk anyone who shows kindness to her, as she has been starved of it otherwise.
Chance of Redemption: If the writers tone down the abuse of her and stop making it Dude, Not Funny!.
However, she's present at the moment of the death of her dog Brian Griffin. Meg is sad that her pet is now in the heavens... which means she reaches to low at her best. Afterwards, she got a new dog, Vinnie... sadly, it lasted two episodes.
It's also noted that her superior Seth MacFarlane ascended, and he's doing the possible to free her, otherwise, she's ruined.
Was to ascend to the Pantheon, change its form to that of Mr. Rogers, and lead Light and his allies into overtaking the Main House, but a meddler changed the ritual. Its powers are now effectively locked, leaving it incapable of taking the shape of any god with more influence than a Lesser deity. Its, ahem, "stamina" was also lowered to less than a ninth of its previous capacity.
Embarrassed beyond belief, it is now summoned by adventurers on which it can unleash its rather ineffectual fury.
Is made the butt of a lot of jokes based on endurance. Even Milhouse can get away with it (and he's not even a God anymore). That's just depressing.
To paraphrase V. V., it really was the woman who led the man astray. An Ensemble Darkhorse in the earlier part of the series for his clearsightedness, Ohgi was looking to ascend to a more desirable spot in the Pantheon, until he was led astray by an enemy spy who had been on his leader's tail nearly the whole time. He would later face one of the biggest fandom face heel turns ever when he sold out his leader based on the suspicious if half-true testimonies of not only her, but Schneizel, leading the former leader to act the world's worst dictator as quite possibly an elaborate hidden excuse to off himself. And said traitor couple is one of the few to get a Happy Ending instead. This injustice would not stand, yet, considering the fall-from-grace nature of his character, it was decided he would join the Fallen.
Considering also the woman he loved tried to kill him to rid her association of his leader who she led him to betray, that he tried making an under the table deal for Japan's freedom in exchange for Zero without the UFN's consent or knowledge, and ended up as the Prime Minister of Japan despite his worst blunders, Ohgi also serves as a prime example of falling upward.
Chance For Redemption: Barring the improbable postscript My God, What Have I Done? revelation, very little. To paraphrase Dante, the lowest circles of Scrappy hell are reserved for traitors.
Fell as a result of an infamous scene in Mortal Kombat 9 resulting in much rage, eye rolling and wall banging. Alas, the events of the story mode of Mortal Kombat 9 ruined some characters, causing the Fall of Raiden, the temporary Disgrace of Quan Chi and the temporary depowering of her daughter Kitana. As a result, much of the Pantheon feels sorry for her.
Chance Of Redemption: Medium. Her chances lie upon the story mode of Mortal Kombat X. If she appears at last as a cameo and atoning for what she did, she's free from this pitiful place.
For the most part, Sarah is upset to be part of the Fallen, but is fully aware that she's had in coming for a while, and IS grateful that she isn't in the Disgraces. Ed, being her big brother, was understandably concerned, but was assured that he can still see her, though some of the more powerful good-aligned gods tend to keep an eye on Sarah when that happens (if only so she doesn't relapse back to her abusive ways.)
Chance of Redemption: Very slim, as her Heel-Face Turn occurred almost too late (like movie-ending too late) for many people considering her show has already ended. though if the show she appeared in were to continue or be rebooted, she'd have to either prove her new found level in kindness has stuck, or significantly reduce (or even preferably drop entirely) her lengthy status as a Karma Houdini. Though that's not likely to happen anytime soon.
There was a moment where K9999, one of the most finest members of the GUAE, wanted the destruction of the GUAG... until one day K' appeared and his plan got thwarted instantly.
After this, he got demoted to The Fallen at request of Tetsuo, the God he's modeled after. He got replaced by Nameless, a clone who takes his place in KOF 2002: Unlimited Match. Said clone occupied his former positon (yet Anti Villainous in Nameless' case) better than him in many ways.
Chance of Redemption: Low, Nameless replaced him and no one wants him back anyway.
After this, he got demoted to the fallen after the Court discovered how useless his ultimate abilities were.
Chance Of Redemption: Medium. His Black Tessaiga and its abilities convinced the court that not all of his attacks are Worf Barrages, plus the fact that he was able to defeat Naraku, and his love interest Kagome Higurashi has ascended, and she's doing the possible to free him, otherwise, he's ruined.
Hitler wanted to be in the House of War, stating his actions in World War II and his ability to stare Captain Planet to death should be enough to secure him a position there. He was not happy upon being informed that he entered the Pantheon only because it was funny to hear him rant. And even then, his position is down amongst The Fallen.
Hitler was informed that the one who suggested his position was Yuuki Terumi. Furthermore, Terumi got this suggestion from Hermann Fegelein, one of his own generals who has been known for his antics. This has led to the following:
Downfall 13:6-13: I should've known that imbecile would side with that troll. And look what happened! Because of those two, I'm fucked! All I wanted was to have a position in the House of War. And they ruined it! They will pay for this, starting with Fegelein! FEGELEIN!!! FEGELEIN! FEGELEIN!
Hitler's officers and staff members of his bunker have expressed interest in joining the pantheon as separate gods, but Hitler refuses to let them. He's especially adamant about letting one of his generals, Alfred Jodl, into the pantheon after he made constant objections to Hitler's plans to no longer be amongst the Fallen. The following is one of their many arguments: (Downfall 3:13-18)
Jodl: But my Fuhrer, I want to be God of Objections!
Hitler's Brain considers this Hitler a pretender, and vice versa. In fact, there are varying rumors of who this Hitler really is. Some say it is indeed Adolf Hitler, but has been punished so thoroughly for his crimes that it warped his mind to that of a Psychopathic Man Child. Others say he is actually an actor named Bruno Ganz. It gets even weirder when he starts arguing with other Hitlers.
It's because of this that Red Skull refuses to obey him, saying that someone so undignified cannot be the true Führer. Plus, he refuses to be called "Red Skeletor" or "Skeletor II".
Even so, he was begrudgingly given credit during "The War of the Hitlers" for single-handedly being the sole survivor. The fact that Fegelein had a role in it soured the victory though.
He claims he did not commit suicide on April 30, 1945 and wants to stop such rumors even if all the history books in the House of Knowledge say otherwise.
He also wants to clear up any claims that he is "Adolf Shitler". He once gave a very detailed explanation on how he's different. No one seems quite willing to believe him though.
Planned to take Azula's seat of Villainous Breakdown. When he failed, the response was as could be expected (Downfall Chapter 6). However, with her returning to the mortal realm, Hitler finally claimed the title.
Hitler and most of his officers can easily cause mass devastation and humiliation just by a simple action, Hitler's being his twin pencils of Doom and Mass Destruction which triggers when he angrily throws them at a map of Berlin. Many of the more chaotic members of the Pantheon want to get their hands on these, particularly Rico Rodriguez as they seem like fun. Despite access to such weapons, Hitler and his officers refuse to use them in any practical way, simply wanting to either destroy or humiliate any random thing that comes to mind.
Surprised the majority of the Pantheon when he declared that he isn't actually anti-Semitic. Most of the Nazi-aligned immediately attempted to have him ousted as the true Hitler, led by Hitler's Brain. They failed.
Was one of the few Gods to realize from the start the full scope of Trollkaiger's actions behind the events of Arakune's ascension, quickly learning of their plan to slander Ms. Litchi along with them. However, no one listened to his rantings about this event, and so his warnings went unnoticed. He has since been preparing the United Reich's forces to combat Trollkaiger and its masterminds, despite heavy objections from members of his own circle.
Jodl: But my Fuhrer, this is absurd! We can't stand against Trollkaiger!
Hitler: Goddamnit Jodl, give me one good reason why we can't go to war with them!
Jodl: Trollkaiger and its leaders are invincible!
Hitler: Oh, for fucks sake, they are not invincible! That damn troll is proof of it! The rest of them will fall as he did, so shut up before I personally throw your shiny bald head at Bernkastel and see if she can make a miracle out of that!
Alongside his desire to destroy Fegelein and Trollkaiger, Hitler has made it his life's work to find Waldo. He's been...unsuccessful.
One day, Waldo walked into Hitler's bunker and stared him in the face for twenty-four hours. When he left, his officers asked him if he had finally Waldo. Hitler responded with a very long rant wondering how that red-and-white striped imbecile could be impossible to find. Attempts to convince him that Waldo had been staring him in the face all day were unsuccessful.
Chance of Redemption: Nil. Much of the good-aligned gods don't want him to enter just by his name alone and the evil-aligned gods view him as either a disgrace to his name (as seen above regarding his indifference to Antisemitism) or just too ineffectual to deserve entry. Plus, hearing him rant down in the Fallen is always good for a laugh and any of his attempts at trying to leave the Fallen is thwarted by either his own stupidity, the stupidity of his officers, or the antics of either Fegelein and Trollkaiger.
Originally it was decided that only 4 of the Knight of Round spots would be vacant, but with the already huge cast, these two hapless members were given minimal focus, to the point where they were left with standard issue Knightmare frames when it was finally their turn to go into combat. Their quick defeats in battle, however justified, became instant sources of unintentional hilarity.
Formerly in the House of Sports, he tried to get himself a research position in Academy to write research papers and books, but that turned out to be a very bad idea. He ended up getting himself not only sacked from the Academy, but cast out of the entire Pantheon, forcing Clarkson, Hammond, and May to head down to their Stig Farm and find a replacement for the House of Sports. The new Stig has inherited this Stig's former domain, followers, and basically everything else, leaving this Stig with nothing. Some say the sacked Stig now spends his time driving around in a Lego car at Legoland Windsor. All we know is, he's no longer called The Stig.
To be fair, this has happened twice. The former Stig (known as The Black Stig for his all-black outfit and helmet) met a more gruesome end, thrown to Davey Jones' Locker by Clarkson, Hammond, and May.
Chance of Redemption: Got sacked, so he stays in The Fallen for a long time.
Ascended after it was found out that his actions in his home universe caused five deaths of Lee's group to die. Not to mention that he barely did anything of good use—even Clementine and Duck, who are children, helped out—and was just considered a dead weight. The only person who was at his trial to defend him was Lee, but Johnson's word was law, and Ben had no choice but to stay here.
Is not liked by gods with his portfolio: Shaggy hates him because Ben is supposedly an Expy of him but Shaggy is always there for his companions and has recently been seen as a Cowardly Lion/Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass. Gilligan only foiled one half of his friends' escape plans and they all made it out on unscathed. Nathan Drake doesn't intentionally cause people to die all around him by his own actions, etc. This hasn't helped Ben's self-esteem in the slightest.
It should be noted that the former holder of the title is Mokuba Kaiba. Seto just mocks him due to being even worse than his own brother, which he deeply cares. The Judge also came to Kaiba's defense stating that what Mokuba lacks in dueling abilities, his heart and willing to forgive others (particularly Noah) make up for a lot of his problems. Heck, there was one world where he wasn't considered a liability and actually derailed the plans of the Big Bad. This really didn't help Ben's case.
Chance of Redemption: None. The choices he made in his universe pretty much doomed everyone, and he himself died in his own Heroic Sacrifice. Not to mention that he is just a liability and therefore practically useless.
Little has been revealed about Chuck's background or whereabouts since his first steps into the Pantheon garden. He apparently was one of the regulars during its initial construction, and then simply disappeared without a trace. Fonzie and Steve Urkel have denied all involvement in his disappearance.
Chance of Redemption: Unlikely, even if someone actually finds him.
This long, extensive list of offensive things she's done via stubborness and Pride to screw up her world, being the 2nd place main cause of the "Endless June" cycles of madness and death, which include the following:
Her cruel treatment of the Houjou siblings being indirectly responsible for the 1980 incident.
The same scenario being indirectly responsible for the 1982 incident.
This incident is the direct cause for Shion's distinguishment.
Being indirectly responsible for Onikakushi-hen kaekras.
Being directly responsible for Watanagashi-hen kaekras.
This crime was the direct cause of Shion's own trip to The Fallen.
Being indirectly responsible for Tatagoroshi-hen kaekras via the same circumstances leading to the 1980 and 1982 incidents.
Being indirectly responsible for Tsumihoroboshi-hen kaekras.
Crimes against the pantheon i.e. her collective screw-ups being a major catalyst for the birth of Bernkastel and thus the formation of "Trollkaiger".
Rita Repulsa, the one who shares her same english voice, absolutely feels pity for her, to the point of having a severe headache.
Chance of Redemption: Zero. The only reason she's not in the Disgraces is a few Pet the Dog moments she did in later arcs. The fandom has never forgiven her for the "distinguishment incident". Much like Teppei, she wasn't even nominated in the 08/2013 character poll.
