Although the only successfully implemented Magnifryers were those of Pyro, there are also Charnel's Magnifryers left unused in Scapex.

Due to the perceived senselessness of the war, many gremlins defected to Stratos. The war was concluded with the victory for the Faithful. As a result the use of the Demon Gate was banned for all the gods, however the Gate itself wasn't destroyed. To deny its use to Charnel, other gods had taken turns at protecting the Gate. This, in turn, led to a decrease in the number of demons in the world of Sacrifice, especially the Netherfiends.
