Möbius Dick (character)
|Species||Four-dimensional space whale|
|First appearance||"Möbius Dick" (6ACV15)|
Möbius Dick had the ability to travel into the fourth-dimension. It also encountered and devoured many ships that crossed into its path, and devoured the individuals in the ships it encountered, such as the of the first and current crews of Planet Express. It has a "Möbius colon", which is shaped as an infinity symbol, and kept all it devoured in a state of recycling time and space.
It fed on obsession, and it fed on obsessed individuals such as Lando Tucker and Leela. However, Leela overpowered it with her great obsession with completing her delivery, and controlled it to travel to the Planet Express building, and also freed all those who had been devoured by it. It is assumed to be dead, having been attacked by those who had been devoured by it, as well as their families.
- The name of the whale, like the title of the episode in which he appears, is a reference to Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick and its title sperm whale.
- It is given the name Möbius Dick by Leela.
- Its colon resembles a Möbius strip, something Professor Farnsworth deduced without even seeing the creature.
- The "air" that it breathes out forms a Julia set.
