The Space Pope (Latin: Crocodylus pontifex) is the reptilian leader of Space Catholicism, and presumably the replacement of the Pope in the future. First mentioned in "Hell Is Other Robots", he has been mentioned and had cameos in several episodes since. In "The Duh-Vinci Code" it was revealed he resides in Rome and guides ship landings. In "The Silence of the Clamps", he served as the minister to the Donbot's eldest daughter's marriage. In "Meanwhile", he attended Fry and Leela's wedding, at St. Koch's Cathedral.
- He appears to be friends with Calculon, [6ACV14] this could be seen as ironic seeing as Calculon himself is friends with the Robot Devil. [4ACV18]
- His reptilian heritage is so ordinary a fact in the future that it is commonly used in a rhetoric question, "Is the Space Pope reptilian?" [2ACV09]
- Space Rome is a former planet. [3ACV07]
