Additional Info[edit]


  • This weapon is taken from Star Wars. The "glowing solid stick" type lightsaber is, most likely, derived from modern lightsaber replicas which use LED-lighted polycarbonate sticks.
  • Lightsaber sounds are used in "The Six Million Dollar Mon".
  • The giant microscope used in "Bender's Big Score" makes a lightsaber sound when activated.
  • Lightsabers were also used by Sith Overlords in the Sithal War.
