A truecel (antonym: fakecel) is assumed to be doomed into inceldom due to some unchangeable characteristics they are argued to possess. In parts of the incelosphere hyperfocusing on lookism, e.g. parts of the blackpill community, such characteristics are assumed to be primarily extreme ugliness, disfigurement and high mutational load, with perhaps overlap with medceldom. Truecels are considered those at the rock-bottom decile in terms of SMV (sexual marketplace value) and LMS; as such a 1/10 on the decile chart. In terms of appearance, truecels typically range from very ugly to being so nauseatingly hideous, merely looking at their face makes one go yuck. This category of inceldom includes deformed people. A stronger predictor of sexlessness than looks is, however, neurodivergence, especially odd, introverted, shy, highly inhibited, anxious and autistic behavior (especially for males), as well as lack of dating skills and lack of cultural marriage norms (see causes of inceldom).
While it is true that below average attractiveness predicts about twice as high of a chance of remaining virgin in early adulthood than above-average attractiveness, in one study, all of the 26 very unattractive men and 33 of the 38 very unattractive women did have sex by about age 28. This means that if severe physical ugliness does indeed have a drastic effect on mating performance as claimed, this must be limited to only the 1% least attractive (likely even less). This is also evidenced by physical attractiveness only weakly predicting the number of past sex partners, despite looks playing a large role in initial romantic interest (see also beauty). In a sample of physically disabled individuals, 47% did not have a partner, while in a matching sample of non-disabled individuals, 30% did not have a partner.
The average truecel is argued to be so oxytocin-starved, even a brief touching of fingers whilst exchanging cash with a female store clerk who looks like Whoopi Goldberg or Rosie O'Donnell can send truecels over the moon in a frenzy of euphoria.
Truecels by and large have never approached a woman they have found attractive, rather choosing to engage in juggernauting, i.e. approaching women they consider unattractive. Being a truecel is also sometimes accompanied by having AVPD, a condition often experienced by people who have been relentlessly bullied or ridiculed throughout their lives.
Truecels sometimes carry traits associated with volcels; thus suggesting an overlap between those who are truecel and those who are volcel (see Volcel section). Although the term truecel is itself genderless/gender-neutral, women who consider themselves as part of this demographic often prefer the female-specific term truefemcel. Due to low self-esteem derived from years of belittlement, he is also docile.
Traits[edit | edit source]
Characteristics argued to be commonly found among truecels is high inhibition, mentalceldom and uglyceldom. Their self-esteem is usually so low that even a simple activity such as walking to the cornershop may induce panic attacks due to a sub-conscious inkling that they've been rejected by society and such do not deserve to walk on earth. This feeling of unworthiness makes each step feel like their genetically inferior feet are contaminating the soil and thereby may produce a funny walk reminiscent of those with cerebral palsy - and that's ignoring truecels who literally have cerebral palsy, since a good chunk of them are disabledcel. The average person is too embarrassed to be seen in public with a truecel, never mind dating them.
When encountering nearcels, truecel's tend to be very protective of the terms truecel and involuntary celibate. Truecels often claim that anyone not hideously ugly should not be allowed to use the terms truecel or incel, and only do so because they are failures in life or want attention. Although not all truecels are manlets, the few that are normal height or tall, tend to have ther hideousness distributed at higher levels in other parts of their bodies, especially the head. They typically have an exceedingly assymetric face to the point they consider pulling their neckscarf over their face during winter, and the hair on their scalp is so sporadic, that during astonished stares by nomries, they pull their hoodie over their heads so nobody sees that chemotherapy-patient-like scalp growth.
Even prostitutes who are offered a generous tip would typically reject a truecel. In the rare instances where truecels are not rejected, the encounter is usually one of profligacy, since truecels sometimes have to pay a hiked up remuneration price if they resort to prostitution in order to lose their virginity. The prostitutes see this as a form of compensation for having to endure sleeping with a quasimodo look-alike. As such a trip to a red light district in Nevada for a truecel generally costs more than it would for a normie.
All in all, the life of a truecel is often characterized by permavirginity, i.e. they remain virgins for life. Truecels often wear hoodies over their head; either to hide their ugliness, or to subconsciously symbolize their disassociation from the dating scene, and as such, from the world.
Extent of deformities[edit | edit source]
The causes of deformities vary, some truecels being born with their disfigurement, others acquiring them during their childhood. Truecels born with a disfigurement were sometimes exposed to drugs such as alcohol whilst in their mothers womb. The usage of drugs during pregnancy is well known to possibly result in congenital malformations of the child. Other factors behind trueceldom-inducing malformations in a fetus include the incorrect usage of medication during the first three months of pregnancy (1st trimester).
Association with volcels[edit | edit source]
After several years of a man realizing he's truecel, and realizing that women are totally aloof to him, he may end up taking on some of the characteristics associated with volceldom. Being volcel means that one's interest in women has dissipated. Thats not because his biological drive to pair-bond has disappeared; rather its because he is pessimistic about his chances. A truecel knows that nothing he could do could ever make a woman interested in him. This pessimism gradually turns in him into a volcel, i.e. a voluntary celibate.
Most healthy, virile men will not choose to voluntarily forego romantic relationships, and as such, volcels are more likely to be at the bottom half of the libido scale. However, because human nature likes to be in control of one's destiny, as such some low-tier normies may lie to themselves and ascribe their volceldom to a personal choice of asceticism or some other disciplinary lifestyle choice. An example wherein individuals may pinpoint their volceldom as such includes the MGTOW community, the off-gridder community, the priesthood community etc. Although in each of these scenarios, "reluctant volcel" is sometimes a more apt term to use than merely "volcel".
Names[edit | edit source]
Truecels are also called by various other names, including:
- 1st percentilers
- 1st decilers
- bottom decilers
- Brutto Vero (Italian incelosphere)
- groolcider (someone who makes a girl stop grooling)
- WBAFC (way below average frustrated chump)
- BAFC (below average frustrated chump)

5'2 balding Indian janitor[edit | edit source]
One of the most notable truecel memes is the 5'2 balding Indian janitor.
That Pathetic Guy[edit | edit source]
We have all at one point or another seen That Pathetic Guy. He's that loner guy in the corner at the party who not a single person wants to be seen socializing with. He's turned into the object of mockery as there are easily half a dozen things to mock him for. While That Pathetic Guy isn't looking, others point at him and start laughing. he has no money, friends, looks nor any romantic experience with the opposite gender. The only thing That Pathetic Guy has experience at is being mocked by others to the point where emotional abuse has been internalized.

Progressive tendencies[edit | edit source]
Expressions by truecels on vlogs, vodcasts and podcasts suggest the overwhelming majority of truecels are in favor of the legalization of euthanasia, typically with very liberal criteria. This sentiment largely exists because for truecels, life is by and large a miserable existence. This stance means that truecels overall lean heavily towards pro-choice sentiments. In order to maintain a sense of consistency and coherence, truecels often extend this position towards other aspects of their lives. As such, it isn't rare for truecels to have an overall outlook that slants towards self-determination, self-ownership, bodily integrity and individual sovereignty.
Nonetheless, trueceldom shouldn't be mistaken for a belief, or political ideology, as each truecel has a unique set of beliefs. The only trait that binds them together is universal romantic rejection by the opposite sex; or in case of gaycels, by the same sex.
Trueceldom to reluctant volceldom sequence[edit | edit source]
Some members of the incelosphere have noted a not-uncommon trait they have noticed among some truecels; the act of eventually becoming a reluctant volcel after a long time. The archetype of a truecel starts out with bluepilled attempts at ascending, and later when that doesn't work, trying out varied redpilled attempts at deincelization, including looksmaxxing, trannymaxxing, statusmaxxing, moneymaxxing, surgerymaxxing, gymmaxxing, juggernauting, whitemaxxing, betabuxxing, Jelqing or SEAmaxxing etc. but eventually continuing facing the reality of still being mogged.
The best way to understand the phenomenon of the trueceldom to volceldom sequence is through the Einstein idiom "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result". The tricenarian truecel eventually feels hopeless about their situation and accepts their fate as an omega male who has lost the genetic lottery and is destined to a life of a lonesome GDE (genetic dead end) who remains single till they are put into a coffin.
