It occured to me that he has reasons for bearing grudge at both of the characters, for instance, Bender wrecked up his office just before Morgan Proctors inspection and Doc Z shoved him down the bob-hill when he was upside-down and actually in need of some real help. Could this be the reasons for his constant picking on the two?(mostly Zoid, but...) Also, Hermes claimed to have his dream come true when Bender was mutilated by the evil, but practical Can-Opener.
Any thoughts on this matter would be of interest if written down and posted here!

See "How Hermes Recquisitioned His Groove Back" for my theory on why he hates Zoidy.

Didn't Zoidy rescue him from the "resort"? Granted, he's the one that sent him there...

Hermes is a very straightlaced character.  He's also anal too.  Hermes seems to hate everybody and probably hates Bender for being so surly and selfish.   Think Hermes hates Zoidberg because he is sloppy and poor.

Hermes has been on the PE team for longer than Fry, Bender, and Leela. He's probably had a lot of time to get sick of Zoidberg's incompetency, etc. There's also the fact that Zoidberg receives preferential treatment from Professor Farnsworth thanks to their shared history.

Plus the whole labor camp thing.

Hermes seems like the one that keeps Planet Express from burning to the ground on a daily basis. I'd get pretty pissed at the more destructive individuals too.

Hermes is one for orderliness and control. Zoidberg is non-productive and messy (ink), and Bender is lazy and also messy. It's natural that he'd get irritated with the two.

I don't think that's a fair thing to say. The characters on Futurama, while they do frequently undergo minor and inconsistent changes for the sake of comedy, are generally real characters with understandable motivations, grudges and aspirations. Some things, such as as Fry's intelligence, are more fluid for the sake of plot and humor, but Hermes's dislike of Zoidberg is too consistent to be just something for comedy. Maybe it was originally established to be funny, but we do have evidence as to why Hermes dislikes Zoidberg, and it has become something that drives the plot in certain episodes (The Million Dollar Mon).

He even seems to hate Leela.  He wanted to her organs once.  Hermes even liked it when Leela had the Susan Boil.

Everyone liked it when Leela had Susan Boil. That's how it became a hit video. tongue
