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.

Should anything go wrong, these are the Gods that check this area of the Pantheon.
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 also goes along well with Liara T'soni for the same reason.
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 trains the Fallen to unlearn their bad habits.
Valvatorez, Instructor of the Fallen Gods (Tyrant Valvatorez, Valzy, Mr. Vampire, Mr. Weirdo, Prinny Instructor)
Thanks to testimony from Zetta about Valvatorez was much more powerful than he lets on, namely that he canonically is nearly equal in power to the Nipponverse big three (all greater gods residing in the house of life and death, otherness, and theatre respectively) despite his de-powered state, he was promoted to the Main House.
Although Fenrich, his loyal servant, was happy to see his lord move up the ranks, Fenrich is already plotting to push his lord further, stating that his lord should not be second to any god. However, Val is more concerned about upholding his duties as God of Promises than anything else.
Though to further these plans, Fenrich has persuaded Valvatorez to see about getting himself a spot in the Pantheon, which eventually happened.
Ever since his promotion, there have been some dreadful rumors being spread about him, namely one that his Tyrant state is every bit as powerful as Tyrant Overlord Baal.
Currently unknown if he or Flandre Scarlet is the strongest vampire in the pantheon.
During his spare time, Valvatorez can often be found in the House of Food proclaiming the benefits of sardines and sharing his vast knowledge on them. Most try to ignore him, though some are rather curious about his claim that sardines have allowed him to still be powerful without the need of blood.
Defeating Fear the Great has earned him the respect of other gods who fight against evil gods and their creations, though Valvatorez remains modest, saying that it was a joint effort by his comrades in his Hades Party and that it was to fulfill his promises. That said, Asura has invited him to join his task force to defeat Gohma Vlitra.
Speaking of Fear the Great, there have been rumors that YHVH was behind its creation. Regardless of whether he was behind it or not, his MO matches the God who created Fear the Great and has thus become Val's enemy.
Although Valvatorez admires that Pinkie Pie is also a strong believer in keeping promises, the two have an ongoing argument over what the last line of a planned Official "Pantheon Promise" Swear should be; Pinkie in favor of "Stick a cupcake in my eye" and Valvatorez in favor of "Stick a sardine in my eye". However, the Swear in general has yet to be approved by the rest of the Pantheon and everyone hopes that it stays that way.
He also gets along rather well with Fluttershy since she's helping him with the Prinnies who've redeemed themselves, though she gets a little frightened when he becomes boisterous.
After learning of Princess Luna's role as the Princess of the Night, Val has become good friends with her and has vowed to protect the moon for her and Fenrich's sake. While Fenrich does not want Val to be making more friends and promises, he at least (begrudgingly) respects Luna as the moon is very important to him.
Recently, he requested to head the reformation of fallen gods and gods looking to be redeemed in Purgatory, handing in a resume that detailed his history as a Prinny Instructor. He was granted his request after seeing his impressive track record, particularly the 119.9% success rate of his Zettai Prinny Project.
And now, here he is. Though his loyal servant Fenrich first thought Valvatorez was being demoted to the Fallen and was going to fly into a rage, before Valvatorez told him the real situation. Nevertheless, Fenrich still isn't thrilled.
His track record of success is quite good, although it has much to do with new evidence coming to light regarding said characters.
On the subject of Prinnies, he's quick to remind them that they must not let their ascension get to their heads as they still need to fulfill their duty for them to reincarnate and will not allow any slacking.
As with most other vampires in the Pantheon, Valvatorez considers Edward Cullen and his queen complete disgraces to all vampires. He once toyed with the idea of possibly going down to the Disgraces to reform them, but Fenrich told his master that it would be in his best interest to stay away from the Disgraces. That said, Fenrich told his master that if they were to ever meet, Fenrich will personally "reform" them, smirking as he said it.
Due to the canonicity of certain endings, his transformation into Tyrant is only a matter of time.
Due to his experience in successfully rebelling against psychotic gods, he was amongst the first to be recruited to fight in "The Pantheonic Rebellion". He plans to take part in the "Deep Strike" front and by then, his Tyrant state will have awakened.
After regaining his Tyrant status, he recently became the head Vampire Lord of "The Children of the Night", a rather informal group consisting of the most powerful vampires in the pantheon. In fact, being the strongest is the condition for entering, which has managed to humilate Dracula.
The Belmont family considers him a vampire not worth hunting due to a combination of actually being harmless and friendly when off the clock and due to him being massively off the charts in terms of raw power, even dwarfing the dreaded Gabriel Belmont in terms of power.
Also gets along well with Sora, due to him also being a strong believer in keeping promises, as well as ties of camaraderie.
Though not by his choice, has been nominated for largest ham ever.
Upon seeing the ways that Popeye and Soda Popinski gain power from their respective favorite food and drink, Valvatorez has suggested to them that they start eating sardines instead, and become even more powerful. Neither have taken him up on that.
Chance of Redemption: Unneeded. Valvatorez was assigned to this position to serve as the Instructor of the Fallen, to teach them how to better themselves that they can leave this place and return to the Pantheon or the mortal plane.
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.
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.
When Master Hand was in the Fallen, the seat was empty for a time. However with the advent of a huge merging of worlds that caused many of its participants to obtain their own houses, it was necessary to bring the boss of this land into the Pantheon as a (replacement) God until the passing of the fourth Super Smash Bros. tournament came. Since Master Hand returned to his seat, Polygon Man was forced by Fluttershy in Saddle Ranger mode with THE STARE, Chuck Norris's Roundhouse Kick and Segata Sanshiro's explosive throw to go to the Fallen
Those who manage to defeat Polygon Man are blessed with something known as "All-Star Power". Its ability is used for different things, depending on how it is applied ranging from fueling vehicles to go faster, or even giving others temporary power boosts. so far 15 godsnote 16 if you count Cole's evil side have passed this test.
Rumor has it that the Polygon Man is still seeking revenge following his games by capturing anyone who didn't take part in the Battle Royale and pitting one against one another. One infamous example is by pitting Sora and Lightning together and evoking Light's anger by putting Sora into his Space Paranoids armor without him knowing, causing her to believe that he is a member of the Sanctum and triggering a rivalry between the two.
He's also been keeping an eye on Riku ever since the latter ascended. Sora is aware on this, and has informed Riku to be cautious when in the Theater house.
Started of as a very threatening villain, however, as the time passes, his coolness is degraded to the point of becoming a shadow of his former self, demoting to The Fallen in instants.
However don't think that because he's a degraded villain that he's a Harmless Villain, as he can still be a serious threat when angered.
Inherited the evil aspects of his own father, but even he knows that Grandfather is Eviler Than Thou. So he recurred to an Enemy Mine with Numbuh Zero, his brother, only to cower when his motivation lost.
Even he's disgusted for the abuse methods of Peter Griffin, Teppei Houjou and Hayate's parents. In fact, he qualifies their actions as classless.
He only had one thing to say when he was trolled by the LOL Rangers one time.
Chance of Redemption: Medium. While he's threatening, his lack of self-esteem pretty much loses his motivation to return to the Pantheon proper.
His former title is now held by John McClane. Since he's no longer belonging within the ranks of the Pantheon, the Court of the Gods assigned him here.
After records are shown in his home universe, with unnatural amounts of Character Shilling (Despite the fact that he himself and Sasuke admitted he did some pretty horrible acts. Not to mention, Itachi was the one who made Sasuke into the insane shinobi he was throughout his home realm.), The Court of the Gods have decided that Itachi, much to Sasuke's dismay, is to be put in the Fallen. Upon this decision, there was quite a mournful meeting amongst The Spies of the GUAG, as they've lost one of their most competent members to a Knight in Sour Armor.
Weirdly enough since his transference into the Fallen, his time in the Pantheon proper has been moderately limited in that he can only enter the Pantheon proper within 12 hours, In which it will take six days to do so again. His abilities have also been limited by a quarter. While deities are still very leery of his actions, he has since become a Cynical Mentor of sorts, giving some good gods (besides Sasuke, of course) some very useful advice on how defeat the other alliances.
Also, he's assigned to the Disgraces as a Double Agent, derailing and then breaking every plan of the Disgraced Ones in seconds.
Many crazy worshippers wept for his exile to The Fallen, wishing him back to the Pantheon proper. Some Deities, however, were very annoyed by this and tried to shut them up.
Chance Redemption: Since he is dead in his mortal realm and his series has ended, it's very unlikely that he'll redeem himself.
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.
There are those who have a Broken Pedestal. And then there is Super Hero Aurum, whose pedestal started cracking when he started to get tired of being the hero and just wanted to die in the blaze of glory, resulting him going after Mao's father, which broke Mao's pedestal for him. Then he utterly broke it by trying to turn Mao into the strongest and most heartless Overlord for 200 years as the butler Geoffrey so that he can either die against him, or defeat him and grow stronger. Needless to say, even the demons were against him for this (Disgaeademons, but that's beside the point).
His judgement was postponed for a long time, due of Mao keeping him as his own personal guinea pig. However, he lost control of him after he used him as a power source for his Getter Mao, which fell into the hands of Valvatorez. He eventually got free (possibly due of Fenrich scrapping the machine), but was captured and brought to justice, where he was thrown into the Fallen.
Even today, Mao tries to use Aurum as his guinea pig. Fortunately for him, the rulings of the Pantheon prevent Mao from having complete control over him.
Sometimes, Aurum turns back to his Geoffrey disguise to act as a butler in the Fallen. Due of how prepared he is, especially with portals, he has a really good place in the Fallen because of that.
Teddie really doesn't like him due of them sounding the same and due of how he thinks that friendship is meaningless.
Lordgenome, being a Fallen Hero himself, does sympathize with Aurum a little bit, and has tried to teach him how he could repair his pedestal.
Due of his twisted sense of what it means to be a hero, he is not part of GUAG, but refuses to join GUAE or GUAC. Even GUAL is out of question, not wanting to be dragged by them endlessly.
Chance of Redemption: Due of him apologizing to Mao and Almaz for not turning out to be the hero they admired and willing to die as who he is, he has shown having some chance of redeeming himself. If he appears in a future Disgaea game in order to try to become the hero he was claimed to be, he might get some redemption.
Was previously introduced as Char Aznable's pro tempore High Priest in the House of War, due to the fact that he was literally shaped in the former's image, theoretically with a lot of surgical modification and augmentation (he is technically a Cyber-Newtype), and with the Psycoframe data taken from Char's Sazabi.
Since he bears whatever fragment of Char that was recovered from the Sazabi, he has no problem in taking most of Char's former plans to their logical extremes. This caused a problem between the two in an alternate continuity: Char wanted everyone to use Axis as a focal point to face a looming threat; Frontal wanted to go ahead and cause global winter via Axis Drop - the former's original plan. Fortunately for everyone, Char had an immediate backup plan laid out to make sure it would not get repeated again.
Has a rather decorated rivalry with the Avatar of Possibility due to their involvement in the Battle for Laplace's Box: while he usually shows a certain level of courtesy and respect for the young Gundam Pilot who got to challenge his piloting skills with only hours of experience in the Unicorn, he did not hesitate to take him out once Banagher finally got access to the Box. Their last battle went into a standstill, even to the point that Frontal indulged into a little Mind Rape via Newtype Resonance against Banagher... Until two Newtype spirits (one being Char himself) finally convinced Frontal to stand down, let go of his delusions, and finally rest peacefully knowing that the future remains safe in the hands of the next generation of Newtypes.
Chance of Redemption: Little to none. While his primary storyline had already ended, there's still that inkling of mass guessing in the alternate timeline which may change his eventual status...
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.
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.
One of the people who struck up a bond with her is none other than her Foil Lisa Simpson. While technically not ascended yet, Lisa gave Meg a saxophone to practice while here, because apparently the sorrow in her soul is so great that it makes her a natural. Meg is now practicing whenever she can for a chance to ride the music all the way out of the fallen.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Used to reside in the House of Commerce, that is until his show became a notable case of Franchise Zombies in recent memory, and for the way Paul Tibbit is currenlty handling the show via Seasonal Rot, he got demoted to The Fallen.
However, Mr. Enter also sent a list of his top 25 Post-Movie episodes who indicate that SpongeBob is not lost at all, and Mr. Enter says that there's still a potential to him for return to his Pre-Movie characterization. Needless to say, Daffy finally won the case.
His plan, along with Bugs, was to see SpongeBob in the Disgraces. As shown below, and above, however, it wasn't enough to see him in the Disgraces. Still, they are at least happy SpongeBob out of the Pantheon, if not in the Disgraces.
Since his fall, he's forever banned from entering Toontown forever. Same goes with his fellow Bikini Bottom citizens.
However, despite his eventual suspension from the GUAG, he's still on good terms with his fellow Nickelodeon Deities.
Chance of Redemption: Mid-low. The good reasons why he's not in the Disgraces (God forbid that) are because he produced good quality material during the Pre-Movie era and for his Cash Cow Franchise nature that endured for more than one decade. However, Seasons 8 and 9 has shown an increasing quality within his show and with the announcement of his second movie "Sponge Out of Water", which his creator Stephen Hillenburg is directly involved as the Executive Producer. His redemption and subsequent Character Rerailment depends in the result of said movie, to be premiered February 6, 2015. Otherwise, he will remain in The Fallen for an unforeseeable future. An alternate version of him exists in comic form, published by Stephen Hillenburg .
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.
She was once demoted in this place as the first Goddess of Author Tract before Brian Griffin took the title in the Disgraces (the title is currently held by Madara Uchiha). Many are wanting her for a potential return (including her own family) but ultimately her rude behaviour didn't go well with the Pantheon, so the Court of the Gods opted to put her back in this place again.
Is banned from visiting the House of Beasts after the incident where she insulted the Pokemon trainers for apparent "animal cruelty".
Despite her divisive status, she did many good accomplishments, like helping Meg Griffin during the time they met together, and even she sent her saxophone to Meg as a gift.
Chance of Redemption: Mid-low. However, her political issues are toned down in order to focus more on her isolated life, and for the fact that she's the only one to ever helped Meg Griffin only for the latter's father Peter to ruin it again. If the show continues to focus more on her good points instead of contradicting anyone, she's free from this isolated place.
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.
For all his failures, many admit that Hitler at least has the balls to rant in the face of even the most powerful gods. Everyone from Godzilla to YHVH to even O-Haruhi-sama has received at least one rant directed towards them. Often times, it leads to his complete obliteration, requiring days of recuperating at the House of Life and Death, but they give him credit where credit is due.
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.
Graduated from the Toku Base in a strange way. Unlike the others, this graduation is not a promotion to the Pantheon proper but rather a demotion to The Fallen for representing a failed adaptation despite his heroic actions (like everyone in the Toku Base).
Forms part of a brigade of Masked Riders consisting of himself and his misnamed ancestors.
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.
The violence she subjects Urashima Keitaro to on a regular basis had gotten to the point where it was predictable... but the last time he crashed into a collapsing skyscraper, it took the combined efforts of House, Dr. Litchi AND Dr. Mordin to put him back togethernote And that's after a lot of explosive, wacky medical hijinks by Dr. Faust who's with them. Not to mention, Domon Kasshu and Master Asia assisted in clearing the rubble with their bare hands (i.e. half of the collapsed skyscraper was sent flying by just one punch and kick, allowing Nakajima Subaru to pull Keitaro from the wreckage). In retaliation, Keitaro's sister Kanako gave her a punch powered by her love, her anger, and all of her sorrow, sending her anime incarnation here.
Naru's manga incarnation nearly ended up sharing the same fate as her anime incarnation; a timely Breaking Speech from Rin Tohsaka stopped her habit of hitting Keitaro before it grew out of control.
Chance of Redemption: Unlikely but possible, since Love Hina has been finished. It's only a matter that it gets a remake staying truer to the source material. Otherwise she'll remain here for the foreseeable future.
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.
Was demoted to the fallen after her death caused the Pantheon to stop caring about and watching her series and deriding it as a series where nothing ever happens.
Many deities (especially Utena Tenjou and Rosette) feel really sorry for her, especially considering how her voice actress died recently, making her death all the more depressing.
Chance of Redemption: Low. While her death may have freed her from the curse, it didn't help that the Buddhist monks who cursed her ancestor got away with causing another death by the curse, causing many people to stop caring about the series and deride it as nothing ever happened at all. May get a chance when Key Visual Arts bothers to make a remake of Air. If she doesn't survive having her curse broken in this one, then she's screwed. Alternatively, if her work experiences a Popularity Polynomial, then she's free from this desolated place.
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 kakeras.
Being directly responsible for Watanagashi-hen kakeras.
This crime was the direct cause of Shion's own trip to The Fallen.
Being indirectly responsible for Tatagoroshi-hen kakeras via the same circumstances leading to the 1980 and 1982 incidents.
Being indirectly responsible for Tsumihoroboshi-hen kakeras.
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.
