Injury and death are recurring themes on Futurama.

Season 6

"Rebirth" (6ACV01)

  • At the beginning of the episode Fry is covered with horrible burns, and nine of the eleven major characters are dead and hanging gruesomely over Farnsworth's birthing machine. As we learn later, although these crewmembers are "revived" in some sense, this Fry is a robot, and the real Fry is dead. That is, really dead, his remains having disintegrated when Farnsworth dumped them into the birthing machine.
  • Bender dies for a moment after emerging from the birthing machine.
  • Leela spends some time in a coma and a euthanasia/memorial service is held for her.
  • Leela's comatose body takes a beating in Farnsworth and Fry's final attempts at reviving her.

"In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" (6ACV02)

  • V-GINY destroys a number of inhabited planets.
  • For a while, Leela believes that the earth has been destroyed.

"Proposition Infinity" (6ACV04)

  • Seeing personal items in the captured tornado, the crew believe for a moment that Bender and Amy have been gruesomely killed.

"The Late Philip J. Fry" (6ACV07)

  • Of course, although everything works out in the end, it is still true that all of the other original characters die when Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender go into the future. And of course, in the final universe, the Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender who were already there are killed by the Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender from the original universe.
  • At Hedonismbot's bachelor party, a nuclear accident kills all the participants except for Hedonismbot himself. The crew spend the rest of their lives believing that Fry, Farnsworth, and Bender were killed in the accident.
  • When the time-travelers finally drop out of time, the time machine falls to Earth, killing their "duplicates".

"Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences" (6ACV11)

  • Lrrr accidentally disintegrates Fry with a ray-gun. For a few moments, everyone believes that Fry is dead. The ray-gun turns out to have been a teleporter, not a real weapon.

"The Futurama Holiday Spectacular" (6ACV13)

  • Although necessarily non-canonical, this episode has everyone on Earth dying twice, and the crew presumably dying a third time.

"The Silence of the Clamps" (6ACV14)

In this episode, everyone gets a double-dose of Bender dying. First, when Billy allows Farnsworth to examine his brain, Farnsworth announces that the EBI has destroyed Bender's essence in bumpkinizing him. In his friend's minds, Bender is dead. Second, knowing that Bender is gone but still believing that Billy is Bender's body, they witness Billy's murder. For a short time, everyone believes Bender to be truly gone.

"Benderama" (6ACV17)

  • Farnsworth shoots Bender with a handgun. For a moment, everyone believes that Bender is dead. Instead, the bullet has been blocked by a bible that Bender happened to have in his torso at that moment.
  • Again, after the Bender conglomerate is defeated by the marauding giant, everyone (including the Galactic Entity) believes that Bender is dead.

"The Tip of the Zoidberg" (6ACV18)

  • Fry sustains a hand injury that results in blood loss and a liver disorder.

  • Amy loses a kidney to Zoidberg for unknown reasons.
  • Bender is rendered incontinent by Zoidberg in some unspecified manner and for unknown reasons.
  • To spare Farnsworth an unpleasant death, he swears Zoidberg to kill him when he finally begins to show symptoms of hypermalaria. Zoidberg attempts to kill Farnsworth several times, and even succeeds once, but Farnsworth is accidentally revived.
  • The crew work together to create the "murdolator" to euthanize Farnsworth.

"Ghost in the Machines" (6ACV19)

  • Fry, Amy, Hermes, Farnsworth, Leela, and Zoidberg die horribly, some of them on seeing Langdon Cobb, others seeing simply his photograph. We find out later that their "life forces" are simply trapped inside Langdon Cobb's id and readily return to their bodies when the whole quantum lichen is killed.
  • Calculon truly commits suicide in the hope of winning an acting competition.
  • Langdon Cobb and his id are both destroyed in an overload of ego-stroking.

"Zapp Dingbat" (7ACV05)

  • The episode opens with Scruffy holding a memorial service for his dead goldfish. He flushes the fish down the toilet, and Zoidberg, visiting Leela's parents, is the fish's final destination.
  • At the end of their first date, Zapp disintegrates Munda with a ray-gun. Fans who have forgotten Farnsworth's teleporter ray will believe for a moment that she is dead and Leela has just witnessed a murder.
