Morbo's species have apparently been constructing a mighty space fleet to take over Earth. The Omicronians have invaded several times, and possibly succeeded in the past (which would explain why the Hubble was redesigned Omicronian-style). If both races decided to attack simultaneously, who would eventually be victorious? The battle would have to consist of both space dogfights and terrestrial tactics. Each race would be fighting against the other two races; there is no cooperation.

For the Omicronians:
We have seen the immensity of their army before, and know that they are capable of holding off massed attacks.

Against the Omicronians:
They seem unfamiliar with Earth customs and technology, limiting their success on the planet itself. Their missiles from Love and Rocket don't seem to be particularly damaging to a shielded ship.

For Morbo's kind:
Morbo has most likely been assimilating information during his life on Earth, which would be readily available through his job as a newscaster ("So, humans have easily damaged knees..." ), and their invasion fleet is being assembled specially. Probably with air-to-knee missiles.

Against Morbo's kind:
Lack of experience fighting humans.

For the humans:
Knowledge of the terrain, and the incentive that they are fighting for their home planet.

Against the humans:
Zapp Brannigan.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

I would say Terra because they are apart of DOOP organization. There's no evidence to suggests that the Omicrons or Morbo's Race is apart of the democratic order of planets.

Well, DOOP must have good relations with Morbo's race more than the Omicronians, since Morbo is allowed to be a news anchor on Earth.  DOOP fears the Omicronians.  Remember in TPWP there was a sign that said something about them fearing the Omicronians.  Of course they crossed out "fear" and put "welcome" once the Omicronians arrived on Earth.

Someone from a nation we are at war with would be allowed in our country. Just because they are allowed on planets under DOOP jurisdiction doesn't mean they are apart of DOOP

Actually, if you look closely on "Brannigan, Begin Again" you can see an Omicronian in the courtroom. Anyway, I'd have to say Omicronians since they could have destroyed Earth on "When Aliens Attack" and Earth hasn't had very much success with alien invasions (WAA, ATOF, TPWP, etc) and Morbo's race hasn't attacked Earth yet, so we don't know what they're capable of.

Then how come we've haven't seen Omicronian citizens on Earth?  it would've been funny to see an Omicronian janitor at the Head Museum or as some worker at Fishy Joe's.

Whenever I see Morbo on the news, I always think he was put on Earth because his ideas were too eccentric for his race. I always thought that he was the clinically insane outcast who they parted ways with. Morbo's race comes off as nothing more than a joke to me. Earth clearly fears the Omicronians. And no, they're not part of DOOP, because then there wouldn't be a sign that said "United Against The Omicronian Menace". Omicronians win.

On a side note, that sign had a little inside joke for me because I had friends that used to be in a band called United Against, and those were the two words crossed out...heh.

I'd say Earth would have to win, due to the laws of television.  The Omicronians do have the power to destroy Earth, but they would be stopped somehow.

I would say since we don't know anything about Morbo's race other than his rants.  I am going to go for the Omicronians because they already defeated the Earth once.

Earth would win, no doubt. Just give the Omicronians a few episodes of Single Female Lawyer, and they'll let us do whatever we want. I don't know any character other than Morbo himself who is part of that species so that army's small.

Have anyone ever seen the "mighty spacefleet" Morbo constantly talks about? Either it only exist in his own mind, or it's some kind of gimmick he use to gather fame. If this fearsome fleet really do exist, I'm sure someone within the Earthican goverment have heard about it, and we'd see the Earthican army prepare for the oncoming battle, rather than fighting skirmishes with the Brainballs.

Omicronians, yeah they would probably win. Why not? They've done it before.  Unless, they use Windows and Earth manage to upload a computer virus to their main computer.

the omicronions would probably win, but morbo's race could scare the hell out of humans, (what did linda see on freedom day?) but the omicronions have experience. I would hate to fight for zapp, because, id be in a wave of men who die pointlessly, however, he does seem to win wars, even though most are against the peaceful

Earth.  We don't even know that Morbo's people are tough fighters.  And the Omicronians, while violent, have tried to conquer Earth before, and have failed at it.  Even with Zapp Brannigan and Nixon's head, I think Earth would put up a decent fight.  Plus, Zapp's incredibly lucky when it comes to war.

Earth will just do what they always do: buy the Omicronians off with a canceled TV show or food or something.
As for Morbo's people, either the Omicronians would blast them for messing with their traditional enemies or Morbo's just a lunatic and there is no space fleet.

I don't know, I think Morbo's race might have a pretty good chance. After building to an invasion throughout the series, you'd think they'd have SOME sort of climactic battle.  wink

The Omicronians are technologically superior, but they've been defeated by Earth before and outsmarted twice more after that. Hell, they were outsmarted by FRY - FRY! I don't think they present that much of a threat.

As for Earth, we've seen them be conquered before, by the Decapodians, largely due to Zapp's impressive incompetance. He was also responsible for the Omicronian's almost-victory in When Aliens Attack, and he's still climbing in the ranks - the only races he can defeat are peaceful people or crazy spiders who are too busy weaving to be bothered by him.

I'm going to have to give Morbo's species the shadow of the doubt and give them the victory - although, being a television series, Earth would surely win, due only to the efforts of a certain underappreciated delivery company.  wink

It depends if we're talking about defeating Earth or conquering it. I mean, it's probably very easy to hammer the Earthican government into saying "all right, we surrender, everyone on earth becomes your slaves" because they're weak and American - no just kidding. I mean, realistically, when we consider the history of resistance put up by peoples across the world to foriegn invaders, Earth could be very difficult to completely subdue - that is if everyone was not being led by Zapp Brannigan...
So that's something in Earth's favour. Although, the Omicronian threat of raising Earth's temperature jusliketha' would just kill us all regardless so there you go. However, in the wording Lrrr used, he didn't put much emphasis on what he was threatening. He threatened like he was putting sanctions on Earth, rather than obliterating every speck of dust and all. Either that's because he's bluffing, and just making it up as he's going along, or it's so common and easy for him to do, he doesn't see what a huge fuss it is. Well, is he lying? Well it is a TV show so who knows.
Anyway, apart from that, Morbo does seem the slightly mad one, and if he's been sent to do secret espionage for his race, then he's pretty bloody crap if he keeps mentioning his people's plans live on air every morning, lunchtime and evening. That is unless his people really do have the savvy of a nuclear-powered paddle steamer riding the top of a tsunami tidal wave.
Would his people attack anyway? Well it is a TV show so who knows.

The Omicronians try time after time to take over the earth... and fail. Morbo's species, however, seems to be taking more time to formulate a flawless plan. Sonner or later, they'll pull it off, and actually succeed.

So the question then with the Omicronians is if they are willing to fight to the end this time of get paid off bought off with Jenny McNeal, eating Leela or the like. If they don't they would win.

Morbo's race would just threaten us until they were (insert equivalent alien colour) in the face, then we would just knock them over like that.

Which just leaves the Omicronians and us, and to be honest we could just send them to sleep with a Joey-heavy episode of "Fr***ds".

But I think Earth will win - for we have the one thing none of the races can resist: Hypno-Toad!

ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNO-TOAD.

Earth would win, without a doubt, and it would be easy. The smallest of Professor Farnworth's Doomsday devices was sufficient to create a black hole powerful enough to destroy an entire nebula, take down hundreds of stars, and stop time itself from escaping it.

That would have to be a pre-emptive, blow up their planets type thing though, other than that he could unleash his army of atomic super men! With octagonal shaped bodies, that suck the blood right out of you!

Maybe he could just creep them out with his death clock, whatever works.

Why are people saying that the Omicronians keep trying to take over Earth and fail? They have invaded twice, and neither time they actually wanted to kill/take over all of Earth.
In 'WAA', they only wanted the final episode of 'Jenny McNeal', and when they got that, they left.
In 'TPWP', they wanted to eat a human for every Poppler that was eaten, but somehow Zapp convinced him to only eat one human. Once Lrrr had eaten one human, they left.
If they actually wanted to take over Earth, though, the Omicronians would easily win.

But before the Professor could change out of his pajamas, the Omicronians would have raised Earth's temperature by one million degrees, killing everyone. If they have the power to remotely change a planet's temperature, the Omicronians could take over any race.

Unless the Nibblonians intervened, in which case the Omicronians would be soundly thrashed, and probably eaten afterwards.

If they have that power.

Just because they threatened to do so doesn't necessarily mean that they could have followed through with their threat.

surely if you were in same position as everyone else on earth was in "When Aliens Attack" would you exactly tempt them if they meant it ?

Remind me not to put you in charge of an army.  At least not threat assessment.

On second thought, you'd still do a better job (at that specifically) then, say, the entire US Department of Defense
