Bender Bending Rodriguez Model: He is one of the main characters and is known for his "in-your-face interface". Bender is often mean and disrespectful in regards to other people's feelings. At one point, he flushed Leela's beloved pet Nibbler down the toilet, and didn't feel bad about it until the Professor attached an empathy chip to his head, forcing him to feel other people's emotions. He is also quite arrogant, frequently bragging about how great he is.
Bender has no emotion about committing crimes and often steals people's wallets or items from shops. He loves smoking and drinking, though as a robot he has to drink alcohol to keep him going. The cigars just make him look cool. Bender can also be cruel at times and even sometimes treats his own friends badly.
However, he is capable of caring for others and is close friends with Leela and Fry, even though he often acts obnoxious and mean towards them. Bender seems genuinely happy for Leela when she is reunited with her long lost parents and was devastated when he is ordered to kill Fry in Bender's Big Score.
Considering he is still upset when he returns to the future it's possible he might have been mourning Fry for nearly a thousand years. Bender also has a fair binary time travel code futurama robotics romantic relationships with fembots, such as Countess de la Roca and Angle-ine. Bender can be quite emotional at times, despite stating that robots aren't supposed to have emotions, and is empathic towards turtles since they have hard shells and have difficulty getting up if they fell on their backs, two things they share in common with Bender.
He also becomes the leader of a group of penguins at one point. Bender also idolised the Harlem Globetrotters and wanted to become one of them and started crying when they refused to let him join. Bender also loves cooking though he had little talent for it and would often cook things that were either inedible or just barely edible. In certain episodes however, he has been able to make food successfully, making a cake for Nibbler's birthday party which was promptly eaten by Nibbler.
As a robot, Bender has quite a lot of abilities. He is able to stretch his arms long distances as well as record data in his head, once using this to get Richard Nixon to give him back his body. He also breathes fire binary time travel code futurama robotics he burps and when he is terrified he sometimes ejects bricks from his backside which is his variant of defecation.
Although he usually only does this while in a state of shock, he has also done it after eating an Olestra potato binary time travel code futurama robotics from the 20th century. Bender is also very strong, even managing to bend a supposedly unbendable girder.
Bender is able to remove numerous parts of his body such as his head, arms, legs and even eyes. When he is staring at something or someone his eyes frequently extended out of his head. Like turtles he can withdraw into his chest when he chooses to. Bender can also survive in lava for a short time, though when he displays this ability his eyes melted as soon as he came out of the lava. Bender was built without a backup unit, which is meant to help him backup data so that if his body was destroyed he could upload his data into another body.
Without this unit Bender was recognized as defective and therefore not to tarnish Mom 's Company he would need to be destroyed. He authorized Bender's approval and Bender left the factory defective and mortal. As a bending unit, he spent his life before he met Fry bending girders to be used for suicide booths.
After learning what the girders were for, he tried to kill himself, but binary time travel code futurama robotics unsuccessful.
He gave up on that when Fry claimed that he was his only friend in the future. Along with Leela and Fry, he joined Planet Express as a crew member. While waiting in line to kill himself on 31 December,Frywho was clearly not familiar with suicide booths, stood in front of him, thinking it was a phone booth.
Bender helped him along, but they managed to get out of the suicide booth alive. Bender soon learns that Fry is from the 20th Century and had binary time travel code futurama robotics frozen for a thousand years. Since Fry refused to get assigned to his job, Leela was on his tail. Here Leela finally caught up with them and agreed to help Fry.
Bender decided to stay with them and they headed over to Binary time travel code futurama robotics nephew, Professor Farnsworth. Farnsworth soon offered them jobs, and luckily for them, he had the proper career chips. As an employee at Planet Express he continued his kleptomania, drinking and smoking. He convinced Fry to move in with him at his apartment and soon Hermes Conrad forced him to actually do something around the company. He got assigned as chef of the company, one of his dreams was apparently to cook, but having no sense of taste made vile meals for the staff.
Bender got into trouble when he began abusing electricity jacking onand his friends were not in favor of it. Saddened by their discontent, he sought new opportunities in religion. He joined Robotology, but this only served to make him more annoying to his friends. So they decided to make Bender sin to become his regular self again, binary time travel code futurama robotics condemning him to Robot Hell.
Bender has, in fact, found true love before, in the form of an aristocratic fembot, the Countess de la Rocawhose relationship with him strongly resembled that of the protagonists of the movie Titanic. When the Titanic ship was being sucked into a black hole due to Zapp Brannigan altering the ship's courseshe was the only passenger to go down with it.
But, despite this, his personality continued to be a problem for his friends, and Leela became very upset with him when he flushed Nibbler down the toilet. The Professor "carefully" implanted an empathy chip in Bender, which forced him to feel Leela's every emotion for a short while. During a visit to Past-O-Rama they bumped into Flexo serial number: Flexo and Bender became good friends, but Fry feared that Flexo is evil, and in a mix up at the Miss Universe contest Flexo was arrested for Bender's attempt to steal the tiara.

While being chased by several hologram ghosts, he fled out in the yard where he was run over by a were-car. The collision caused a virus to be beamed into him and he became a were-car. Bender did not realize this until later, but the Gypsy told them the only way to get rid of the virus would be destroy the original were-car. So through a long journey they found the original were-car and destroyed it, and thus Bender was free of the virus.
Bender continued his life with many adventures together with Fry and Leela. He temporarily worked for Calculon as his water heater. He met up with Flexo again, but this time he was not happy to see him, because Bender figured that his second true love was still in love with Flexo.

However, he did not accept the title of Iron Cook, only the lesser title of Zinc Saucier which he made up, and comes with double prize money. During a battle with Space PiratesBender was shot out through the torpedo slot and was forced to drift through space. He, for some time, became the God of the Shrimpkinswhich was a life form that had grown on his stomach. But, after they viciously killed each other in a nuclear war, started by Bender's need for binary time travel code futurama robotics, Bender met up with the Galactic Entitywho he believes binary time travel code futurama robotics God.
Binary time travel code futurama robotics Entity eventually sent Bender back to Earth after receiving a radio signal from Fry. Bender was still wanting his fame, he found interest in becoming the new Antonio on All Binary time travel code futurama robotics Circuits. He got the job. But Calculon was hardly impressed by Bender's performance, however the Network executives disagreed. So Bender got to continue on the show, but in his true nature.

But after being stranded on Neptune for a while, humanity and he decided to fight back, and after the war was won with the help of Hermeshe revealed that he himself had kept the Spheroboom that the scammers had told him to keep safe, thus saving the day.
However, while on a trip back in time to make sense out of everything that had happened that year, a mishap led to him accidentally tearing the universe open.
