- "I am Malachi. It means «He, who really loves the Metal Lord»"
- ―Malachi, Sr.[source]
Malachi, Sr. was Bender's most loyal shrimpkin. He was picked up by Bender at random and subsequently became the contact between him and his believers. He loses his left arm during the construction of a brewery for him, which maims and kills countless others. Bender later saves his son from the flood accidentally created from his tear drop. Soon Bender grows weary of their constant need for guidance, which leads them to use nuclear weaponry against the infidels on Bender's ass, which wipes out all parties in a fiery haze.
- The name of "Malachi" is of Hebrew origin, literally translating to "my messenger”. It is also the name of a prophet from the Old Testament.
- Malachi's hesitation while explain the supposed meaning of his name indicate that his is lying about it and simply trying to appease Bender.
