      Funny, though I would suggest Bender's intelligence (no way he's intelligent as Leela) and his charisma be a little lower (he had no friends before he met Fry), Zoidberg's charisma should be the least ranked of is qualities (since none of his co-workers seem to like him) and Zapp's charisma should definitely be pretty high (since he attracts a lot of ladies that don't know him well enough, i.e. Amy, Linda)

      @jesse_pindus: Good observations. I initially had Bender's INT much lower, but as I was going through the episodes, I felt it didn't do his "scheminess" justice. He's actually a clever plotter and can think when he needs to. That's also why I bumped up his CHA; he can manipulate people when he wants to. I covered his thoughtless / ignorant side by putting his WIS at 5.
      You're right about Zoidberg, of course. I just felt he was slightly more clueless than uncharismatic (only slightly!). Everyone hates Zapp, and unlike Bender, he seems to have zero ability to turn on the charm. Even his entire crew hate him. I think his only "friend" is Nixon; that's not a ringing endorsement. Meanwhile, his lady conquests struck me more as punchlines than manifestations of his charm.
      Of course, the whole thing is extremely tricky and subjective, since a comedy show thrives on surprises and exceptions, not the integrity of its characters. One funny/interesting thing I noticed doing this: the entire cast of the show, with the possible exception of Nibbler, is really low on Wisdom. I think that's partly what gives the show its cynical quality.

      I always thought Bender was 40% Dolemite, but the internet seems to suggest that 40% Dolomite is the way to go. Live and learn!

      Um.. Charisma isn't just making people like you it's force of personality...

      Bender has that in spades.

      Fantastic work but I can't restrain myself from pointing out the typo in Fry's stats - "absense" for "absence"

      @Wyrmworld: Great cow of Moscow! Fixed.
