One of the first 13 Transformers created by Primus. The Fallen betrayed his brothers and Primus to become a servant to Unicron.
At the dawn of time, Primus created new life, the 13 original Transformers, to crew his planetary form into battle against his eternal nemesis Unicron. One of these 13, his original name now lost to the mists of time, turned against his siblings, his creator, and his universe, and betrayed them all. As Vector Prime was constructed to safeguard Space/Time, this robot's function was to oversee the primal force of entropy, the aging and dissolution of order in this universe as presage to a new creation. However, this guardian of entropy became obsessed with the darker side of chaos and death, and in the black place these urges led him, the traitor found a new god, more suited to his nature. He turned against Primus and became The Fallen. Now he is a being of power, darkness, and absolute dedication to Unicron. At the end of the first battle between the two Gods, for his treachery, The Fallen was sealed into a different extradimensional limbo. The dimension was located in the "underspace" between dimensions .
Approximately 7 million years ago, Optimus Prime and Megatron were lost in a space bridge accident. This accident weakened the barrier between reality and the dimension in which The Fallen was trapped, allowing The Fallen to eventually break free and return to Cybertron. He was intent on initiating "The Unbinding," which would break the Seal of Primus and herald the Second Coming of Unicron.To accomplish this task, he recruited a trio of Decepticon outcasts, Bludgeon, Mindwipe, and Bugly, who hungered for a command over the occult, which The Fallen could grant. As per The Fallen's instructions, the recruits were to round up four Transformers with "unique Sparks," Hot Spot, Jetfire, Blitzwing, and Grimlock. When the recruits faltered, The Fallen stepped in, singlehandedly abducting Blitzwing from his well-guarded holding cell and besting the powerhouse Grimlock. The four, dubbed enigmatically the "Angels of Dissolution," awakened strapped to a four-paneled apparatus deep within the core of Cybertron, the Well of All Sparks. Though a combined army of forces from several Autobot & Decepticon factions penetrated The Fallen's operation, his defeat came only when Primus was roused from his slumber and condemned his corrupt creation to an explosive death.
In the sequel to the Transformers Movie The Fallen will be one the main villains in the sequel. The film will be released worldwide in 24 June, 2009. Bay and Labeouf confirmed that the Fallen will be in the film and not just a in title joke. He will be voiced by Tony Todd. They also said he will be an "apocalyptic".
As it is shown in the Transformers:Revenge of the Fallen official movie adaptation, the Fallen once arrived on Earth million of years ago with the other six Primes to destroy that solar system's sun so they could make energon. But one rule they all followed was to spare a solar system with life. The Fallen didn't care about other civilizations and began his plans to destroy Earths sun. The other Primes learned of his treachery and tried stop him but failed. So instead they stole the Matrix of Leadership and hid it from him by using their bodies as a tomb to guard it. The fallen decided to leave Earth until he could find the Matrix of Leadership. Many years later, The Fallen came into contact with Megatron, and formed an alliance with him and created the Decepticons army with him. They used a blurred version of The Fallens face as a symbol of their group. He ordered Megatron and the others to try and steal the All Spark to help with plans of conquest but the Autobots sent it into space to to hide it from them by the Decepticons. Megatron went after it but he never returned due to being frozen on Earth. While Megatron was missing he continued his search for the Matrix of Leadership by sending a group of Decepticons called the seekers to Earth to find it. Years later, after discovering Megatron alive and where he is, sends Starscream and five other Decepticons to find Megatron and the All Spark. After discovering Megatron died from Starscream he told the others to find pieces of the All Spark to revive him. After two years of searching and waiting they were able to revive Megatron. Megatron returned to the Nemesis to report to his master on his failure, but the Fallen told him of a item able to create energon. Megatron, wishing to know more, asked his master on it's location. He told them where it was but needed the Matrix of Leadership to use it, and told him about Sam Witwicky absorbing information from the remains of the All Spark. He also told Megatron to Kill Optimus because he is the only one able to kill him because a Prime can only be killed by a Prime. Megatron, Starscream and a group of Decepticons returned to Earth to capture Sam. After Megatron Killed Optimus The Fallen readied a group of Decepticons to conquer Earth and exact his revenge. He then arrives on Earth with the Decepticons and destroys a Naval Ship as they landed. He then broadcasts a message across the world saying to turn over Sam or else he and the Decepticons will destroy anything in their sights. After Megatron has located the Sun Harvester he makes his way for Egypt to complete his plans. He steals the Matrix of Leadership and teleports to the Sun Harvester, only seconds after Optimus Prime has been resurrected by Sam. Once activating the Sun Harvester the military then try to destroy him and Megatron but the Fallen uses his power over gravity and destroys all the militarys tanks, and jets. Everything seemed going to plan, however Optimus arrives on the scene, now able to fly after receiving parts from Jetfire, and promptly destroys the Sun Harvester. The Fallen and Megatron team up to kill Optimus but Megatron is swatted away and badly injured with a part of his face ripped off by Optimus. The Fallen continues his battle with Optimus but is unable to beat him. Optimus then punches him in the face and knocks off his helmet and he then said "I Rise You Fall" while finishing him off by punching his fist through his chest to pull out his spark and crushing it in his hands. Megatron seeing his master dead decided to listen to Starscream's idea of retreat, and escape.
