The name or term Fallen refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Fallen (disambiguation).
The Fallen is a Decepticon from the live-action film continuity.
I don't want to set the world on fire. I want to obliterate the entire solar system!

The Fallen is one of the Seven Primes. The Fallen founded the Decepticons. He has an apprentice whose name is Megatron.

Only a Prime can defeat me, and now only one remains.

—The Fallen, Revenge of the Fallen




Revenge of the Fallen film

Voice Actor: Tony Todd, Banjo Ginga(Japanese dub)

Thousands of years ago, Seven Primes landed on Earth. One of the Primes later known as "The Fallen" defied an important rule: "Never destroy a planet with life" — He ignored the value of life beside his. He tried to use the Solar Harvester, which has the power to destroy suns and create energon, on Earth. The Matrix of Leadership was needed to activate the machine, so the Primes took it and hid it inside a tomb made up of their own bodies so that The Fallen and his scouts would be unable to activate the machine.

"Pause for effect, pause for effect... Now do an evil laugh."

A long time ago, Megatron came into contact with the Fallen, and he manipulated Megatron into forming the Decepticons, and commanded him to steal the All Spark.

In the present day, the Fallen commands Megatron to assault Earth once more and find the Matrix and the Solar Harvester, now buried underneath a pyramid in Egypt. The Decepticons lead a full-scale attack on Earth and take control. The Fallen sends out a broadcast to humanity ordering them to send to him Sam Witwicky, who knows the location of the Energon signal, or else he will destroy them.

I am sensing a complete lack of burning. Who sprayed me with a fire extinguisher?!

Megatron and the Fallen order Devastator to destroy the pyramid surrounding the Solar Harvester, but he is destroyed by a shot from the rail gun of a nearby destroyer ship. Sam rescues Optimus, but the Fallen comes down to Earth and slices off a soldier's head with his scepter and stabs another soldier. Then, he steals the Matrix from Prime's body.

"Fallen, join me and we shall bring peace to the world!"
"Very well, then." *STAB*

He warps over to the Solar Harvester and activates it, but as the countdown begins, Jetfire provides Optimus with his parts and spark, making him more powerful than before. Optimus flies up the pyramid and destroys the Harvester before engaging the Fallen in combat. The two fight and Optimus kills the Fallen by ripping off his face and tearing out and crushing his spark. Revenge of the Fallen (franchise)

Revenge of the Fallen: The Game

Voice actor: James Arnold Taylor


  • The Fallen (Voyager, 2009)
This is why I don't transform in the movie.
The Fallen is packaged in his robot mode. He turns into a Cybertronian Destroyer. Features include retractable "energy absorption" panels on his legs, arms, shoulders, and head. The toes are mounted on springs (like the first movie Megatron voyager toy), and though this doesn't cause a problem on hard, flat surfaces, it can be a pain when trying to pose the figure on carpeting. The Fallen's quality control seems to vary wildly between figures; the elbows, knees, and ankles are prone to separating quite easily on some units.

Well, it WILL burn your eyes.

  • Battle for the Fallen (Robot Heroes, 2009)

The Fallen is cute and huge. This character also comes with a Jetfire/Optimus Prime, Ironhide (in vehicle mode) and new ROTF Megatron (also in vehicle mode).


  • During San Diego Comic-Con 2008, Simon Furman claimed that a character based upon The Fallen would appear in Revenge of the Fallen.[1] A day later, IDW Publishing writer Chris Mowry corroborated the claim in an interview with MTV Splash Page, calling "The Fallen" the main villian of the film.[2] Less than a week after this, however, Michael Bay reiterated that everything leaked thus far is part of their misinformation campaign and that only a handful of people involved with the production of Revenge have seen the script, contradicting IDW's interviews where their representatives confirm that they have the script.[3] Curiously, on August 5th 2008, after a fan posted on Michael Bay's forum pointing out the contradiction, all references to The Fallen were removed from the aforementioned interviews, as well as any references to IDW Publishing having the script.
  • Strangely enough, in the credits of the film, he is titled as Fallen, without the "The". He appears to be suffering an identity crisis.
  • The Fallen doesn't transform during the film.
  • He appears to have fleshy connections between his arms and his back.
  • One wonders what The Fallen was doing all that time Megatron was frozen in ice. Planning, probably. Evil masterminds do that.
  • In the game, when the Fallen says he will "deal with Prime" but when the cut scene ends and you turn around you'll see the Fallen die, and Prime isn't even there. Spark attack?
  • Michael Bay likened The Fallen to Judas Iscariot though in actuality his depiction within the film is closer to the Biblical character of Lucifer.
  • According to his bio, the Fallen has entrophy running through his body and, therefore, can control it, but this particular power is not adressed in the movie. Also, as seen in the movie, he can also teleport and move objects with his mind. Processor over matter?
  • Initial drafts of the Script had the Fallen being trapped in an dimensional vortex by his brothers, the Primes, and communicating with Megatron trough an interdimensional window. He'd only be released from his prison when the Decepticons uncover the Solar Harvester in Egypt. In those versions, he also eluded Megatron by promising to transform him into a Prime upon the defeat of the Autobots. When Optimus Prime tells him Primes are born, not made, Megatron impeaches the Fallen from reaching an escape portal and blasts him to Optimus, escaping with Starscream through the said portal, and stating he'd no longer serve anyone. The first plot is seen in the prequel comic; the second in the video game.
  • The Fallen looks similar to the "Skrall" from Bionicle.
  • It is unknown what The Fallen was hooked up to when he was on the ship. The device is speculated to be a form of life support.
