Survivor Fan Characters Gameplay
Description: An idol that can be used to negate votes cast against its owner at Tribal Council.
Appearances: Every season

The Hidden Immunity Idol is an object or artifact that typically takes the form of an amulet, medallion, talisman, or any other pocket-sized pendant. Its purpose is to, in one way or another, prevent its user from being voted out at Tribal Council.

Since debuting in the very first season, it has made an appearance in every season following it. Making it the longest-running and most used twist in Survivor Fan Characters.

OverviewEdit

The idol acts as a token of immunity similar to that of the tribal Immunity Idol or individual Immunity Necklace. Unlike these items however, the Hidden Immunity Idol can not be won in an Immunity Challenge. Instead, it is only acquirable by contestants who are able to find its location. When found, its holder can use the idol to negate any votes cast against them at Tribal Council. Additionally, the holder is also allowed to give the idol away or play the idol on other castaways eligible to receive votes at Tribal Council.

Despite its potential to protect its owner, there are several limitations to the Hidden Immunity Idol. Beginning with Survivor Fan Characters 2: Brains vs. Brawns, the idol cannot be played after the votes have been read. Which means a contestant can still be eliminated with the idol in their possession. The idol is also only valid for a limited time. With the deadline typically being on Day 37, with only four people left in the game.

AppearanceEdit

The Hidden Immunity Idol is usually very small in size, being able to fit into a contestant's pocket. The design of the idol varies depending on the season, though it often matches the season's theme and/or location.

FormatEdit

Super Idol Edit

Appeared in: Survivor Fan Characters, Survivor Fan Characters 13, Survivor Fan Characters 19: Star Allies
Played: After the regular votes are read.

The Super Idol is a type of Hidden Immunity Idol that must be played after the initial votes have been cast, but can be used after they have been read. Under this mechanic, all votes cast against the user become void, and the person with the next highest number of votes will be eliminated instead.

Negating Idol Edit

Appeared in: Survivor Fan Characters 2: Brains vs. Brawns onward
Played: Before the regular votes are read.

The Negating Idol is a type of Hidden Immunity Idol that must be played after the votes have been cast, but before they are read. Because of this, it is possible for a castaway in possession of a Hidden Immunity Idol to be voted out. This also makes it possible for the Hidden Immunity Idol to be wasted, as whoever the idol is played for isn't guaranteed to have the highest number of elimination votes.

Non-Hidden Immunity Idols Edit

Fake IdolsEdit

Occasionally, contestants may create their own false idols, usually with the intention to deceive another player. These idols hold no true value in the game, and are disposed of whenever a contestant tries to play them at Tribal Council by being thrown into the fire pit.

Contestants Making Fake Idols Edit

In Survivor Fan Characters, Skylar Cooper purchased a plastic necklace at a trinket store while on a Reward trip. He would later give it to Hugo who he convinced was the real Hidden Immunity Idol.

In Survivor Fan Characters 4: Fans vs. Canons, Knuckles the Echidna created a fake idol while he was on Exile Island. He later buried it in the sand underneath the flag at the Merged camp, where it was found and dug up by Barney Callahan and Lilly Pendragon.

In Survivor Fan Characters 5: The Cursed Islands, Greg crafted a false idol while he was on Exile Island, waiting to be assigned to a tribe. On Day 6, Greg threw his own idol into the fire pit at Tribal Council without revealing that it was fake. He did this because he trusted his tribemates would not vote him out.

In Survivor Fan Characters 6: All-Stars, Minerva Mink created and played her own fake idol. Knowing she was the one being voted out, and wanting to scare her tribe before she left.

In Survivor Fan Characters 9,

In Survivor Fan Characters 12: Fans vs. Canons,

In Survivor Fan Characters 13,

In Survivor Fan Characters 15, Gekkota created a fake idol as part of a plan to trick Xeradonus into not looking for the real idol.

In Survivor Fan Characters 17: Alola, Jeannie created a fake idol out of papier-mâché. She played this idol herself at Tribal Council to prank her tribe.

In Survivor Fan Characters 18: Past vs. Future,
