SciFi movie(s) body count, who's the biggest killer(s)?

  1. Mar 20, 2017 #1
    Star Wars has destroyed six planets full of people, and the city of Jedah. Anyone with a higher body count?

    IIRC, somewhere in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy, they destroy every copy of the Earth in all parallel universes, which would be an infinite death toll :wink:

    You're correct... well then. You put an end to this thread very quickly!

    I guess we are seeking death counts of finite order only...

    I did say "movies" somewhere along there, but the other information is interesting.

    True, you did. There was a Hitchhiker's guide movie, but I don't think it included this information.

    Not that I'm aware of. I have a copy of the movie here.

    Ah, movies, right.

    It would surprise me if there is no movie where the whole universe is destroyed.

    Not true in K-PAX the advice given had to do with the universe unfolding again.

    But the universe wasn't destroyed in that movie, right?

    Again, not a movie, but this appears to happen in Dr. Who every so often. Or most of it gets destroyed, then saved again by the doctahhh.

    Similar to the "Mass Effect" trilogy, in which the threat is that the Reapers periodically emerge to destroy all sentient life in the Galaxy. They themselves live outside the Galaxy, dormant until life has advanced too far for their liking: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Reaper

    Not a movie, a TV show. Lexx, they destroyed countless planets and civilizations and also the Light Universe.

    Well, after they killed his wife, one Douwd destroyed the Husnock... all of them... everywhere — over 50 billion.
    No, sorry about that... the 51st episode of TNG.

    In doctor who series, it's stated that the army once eradicate the enitre galaxy/galaxy cluster(?) I dont remember. Consisting of 50 billion trillion sentient life, in order to make the cybermen go extinct. They are still not extinct tho lmao
