"Bite my shiny metal ass!" ― Bender's catchphrase

He is voiced by John DiMaggio.

Why He Rocks

  1. His catchphrases, "Bite my shiny metal ass!" and "Kill all humans!" remain some of the most iconic lines on the show and remain some of the funniest as well.
  2. He is Futurama's breakout character and arguably the best one as well as he remains one of the most well-known and iconic Comic Reliefs in all of Animation.
  3. His unapologetic vulgarity and selfishness is hilarious and so is his addiction to alcohol.
  4. Despite the abovementioned selfishness and hatred of humans, he takes Fry in when the aforementioned human wakes up in the future and becomes his best friend and roommate
  5. While he would never admit it, he genuinely cares for Fry
  6. He is the subject of many Internet memes
  7. He appeared in an episode of The Simpsons, "Simpsorama".
  8. Deep down, while he is a rude character, he shows sympathy and not only cares for Fry but cares for the other characters as well.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. While his jerk-ass attitude is funny, he can come off as rude or very unlikable.
