Sims death! Now there's something I'm an expert at!

He can fix a dishwasher while standing in a puddle of water!
He can light a rocket launcher while stuck in a bathroom without doors filled with hay bales!
He can go for a swim, and the ladder to get out can mysteriously dissapear!
He can get bitten by a guinea pig and get sick and die!

Ok--so I'm a nerd  frown

Fry, it would be good series ender, with Fry's last breath, after saving Leela, he would admit that he is in love with her. She would then admit that she has always loved him.

Well, no one should be killed off, but if one of them is... I think Hermes would be the least-missed.  Not like he really has too much of a vital position on the show, anyway.  The show would mostly be the same without him.

I don't want anyone to be killed off. And why is nobody sticking up for Hermes? If someone had to it'd be scruffy. He'd have the most hysterical death by far

Have to agree with Cube_116 Scruffy I could live without but hermes I couldn't. Hermes isn't as loved as he isn't used in episodes enough.

i say scruffy, before paracites lost, even more before future stock, without him would we ever really have noticed? he could be considered that anomaly generated in the wehat if for all we know.

but now after seeing three hundred big ones, he must die! he has said too much in one episde, now the only way to salvage the character is to have him be "the guy" you know like the all knowing omnicent garbage man from dilbert or "the guy" from half baked, you know, can do anything and is all powerful, but just "there" and that is what makes the concept funny.

also, don't forget "the guy" from true geniuses. that was a guy to be reconed with.

How bout no one? Reasons:
1: If Fry died(for real), Leela will be devastated and the show would end on a REALLY sad note.
2: If Leela died, Fry would be devastated and would ultimatley kill himself. Also ending the show on a tragic note.
3: If Bender died. Most of the shows humor will dissappear. Show will not end on tragic note, but still sad.
4: If Farnsworth died. Well... that's a diffrent story.
5: If Zoidberg died. We will all be sad. Probably won't affect the characters though. Just the fans.
6: If Hermes died. Show will not end on tragic note. Characters will be sad, but on the next episode, no one will bring it up.
7: If Amy died. I wouldn't kill her off. Just make her run away with Kif and never be seen again.

Kill off Fry,Leela, and Bender, they hardly ever do anything important to the plots.

Nobody should die, and nobody deserves to die IMO, but if it were necessary.... wouldn't mind offing Hermes.

I think as the end fry could die saving leelas life, if that was the end it would be fitting.

I was hoping they would all die in a fire, like whenever I run The Sims. 
BTW I tried filling Fry up with Espresso before the fire starts.  He just wets himself in the PE kitchen and dies in the fire.  Leela dies shortly thereafter.

What would happen if Fry had a dramatic death scene where Leela says she loves him:

<homage, aka ripoff>
LEELA: I love you, Fry!

FRY: No, you don't, but thanks for saying it.
</homage, aka ripoff>

Seriously though, what they should do (I mean, if they ever got the chance to do this) is make us think they're going to kill off a major character, really play it up... then either kill off no one, or someone utterly insignificant, like... like... uhhh... The number 9 guy, or... one of those joke extra employees from AOI II... after which the character would get an obsessive fan base with a million and four fanfics about coming back to life...

Ahem. I'm done now.

In the last episode everyone should die. Make it the end of the world.

The Nibblonians would never allow Fry to die unless he's fighting the brain Spawn: He's just too valuable to them.
As Leela is 'The Other' she's near the top of their list too, her untimely demise ain't flamin' likely either.
Besides, Fry & Leela are two of the primary characters: It wouldn't be Futurama without them.

To make it interesting, I'd like to see Mom pass away. For some reason, watching Walt, Larry, and Igner run MomCorp. would amuse me to no end. The world's most powerful industry run by three morons. That would be funny.

Hermes must die, as must Cubert and Dwight. They are really irritating, there's nothing to like about those three characters

Hermes, definitely. I mean, he doesn't do anything entertaining anyways and I think it would be best if he got killed by Zoidberg because he's tired of the crap, or something like that.

I wouldn't choose anyone to be killed but if my life depended on it I would pick Amy.
What in the hell does Amy do?
Nothing.
Scruffy gets very little appearances yet he makes the most of each of them.
Amy doesn't do much, just like Cubert.
But Amy is more annoying.

What do all these strange people from 2003 have against poor old Hermes?! He's usually not the centre of attention, but I can't see how anyone could dislike him. I'm calling the police.
Right after I flush some things...

Whilst I wouldn't wish the death of any of the main characters (losing one would ultimately wreck the dynamic of the company), Zoidberg would be the one I'd kill off if we had to lose somebody. He's usually only there for laughs, and there's a lot of other characters that can fill that role. Plus, the old fashioned "random guy who does random things" part of his personality seems to have faded away long ago.

Hmm, if I absolutely had to choose one of the main characters to get killed off, I think I'd have to pick Amy. I don't dislike her at all; I just have never found her funny or sympathetic, so I wouldn't particularly miss her. In fact, I'd be glad for the sniping between her and Leela to be done with since I've never been a fan of that aspect of the show.

I think Amy's death would also improve Kif; I liked him much better when he was just Zapp's sarcastic, competent foil. I really dislike how when he's with Amy he becomes a complete doormat, and he doesn't play off of her nearly as well as he does Zapp.

Hermes going away wouldn't be so big loss, but I'd prefer Amy killed off. She's not very funny or important character all in all (compared to others). Not so diverse either, now that I think.

Kill them all.

Have the entire crew killed off for real in the final final episode, as a counterpoint to "Rebirth", and as a way to ensure that the slow decline can't continue with the show being picked up by another network and another drop in budget.

Or, y'know, don't kill characters off for no raisin. Core characters stay core characters because they're part of the dynamic that drives the show. Background characters keep re-appearing because they provide important exposition, or provide a perspective that the core characters are usually unable to.

Certain characters might not seem important on an episode-by-episode basis, but can you imagine what the effect would have been if Friends decided to kill off Ben, Richard, or the Ugly Naked Guy?

You can never tell when a certain character might come in handy to have. Even if you're only keeping them around so that they can utter a single line in seven seasons time, it's never a good idea to kill off characters indiscriminately. Not unless you've already worked out exactly how to bring them back without the fan community screaming "ass-pull!" at you.
