The Faultwarrens 淘汰の断層 (Touta-no-dansou?, lit. The Abyss of Selection) is a location on Gran Pulse in Final Fantasy XIII. It is made up of small areas connected by different routes that are only accessible by completing optional missions from Cie'th Stones. The fal'Cie Titan's throne is located here.

The Faultwarrens are a gauntlet of steep walls and deadly drops ruled by Titan, the fal'Cie believed to be responsible for managing the ecosystem of Gran Pulse. Creatures selected by Titan are pitted against one another in fierce battles with survival as their prize and predation the price of defeat.
Only the most formidable of creatures emerge from the Faultwarrens' trials alive, but those that do so go with Titan's blessing.
