Warning. This Article contains the spoiler that Spike dies, so, if you don't want to find out that Spike dies (which he does), don't read it.
Because SPIKE DIES!

Spike dies

Spike Spiegel, the protagonist of Cowboy Bebop. Shown here dying.

Cowboy Bebop (スパイクの死, Supaiku no Shi) is a 1998 Japanese anime series that tells the story of how Spike dies. Many fans enjoy watching the series, only to find out that Spike Spiegel, the main character, dies. First-time viewers may wonder just how he dies, and will have to watch the entire series until viewing the last episode, in which Spike dies. Otherwise, there is no hint that Spike dies, except for times when he is about to die. Regardless, one should not skip to the final episode, where Spike dies, as it would spoil the rest of the story.

edit Plot

The plot is about two cowboys, Spike (who dies) and Jet, who drive cattle across the stars, while playing their own blend of bebop music. The story is mainly concerned with the events leading up to the death of Spike, the main character, who dies at the end of the show.

Jet does not die in the show, and neither does Faye or Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, or even Ein their dog, but Spike might have.

The TV series ends when Spike, the main character, is killed. The last scene is of him dying. No one knows what happens to his friends, who are still alive, and who did not die, like he did.

A Cowboy Bebop movie was made, however, Spike does not die here. This is because the movie takes place a few episodes before the final episode. If it took place after the final episode, it wouldn't make much sense, because then Spike would have been dead.

DramaticQuestionMark
Did you know...
...that Spike dies at the end of the series?

Spike Spiegel (aka the titular Cowboy Bebop)

A Martian and space cowboy who, up until his death, drives cattle across the galaxy. He dies at the end of the show.

Jet Black

A Black man who isn't really black at all. A descendant of the 20th Century Earth thief Daisuke Jigen, he is a cowboy and Spike's partner. He is still alive at the end of the series, unlike Spike, who ceases-to-be quite gruesomely.

Fayestits

Two of the show's biggest selling points (aside from the main character Spike, who dies).

Faye Valentine

A woman who dresses like a prostitute (or porn actress) and, seeing as she lives on a spaceship with two single, unrelated men, probably is. She was Spike's heavily-implied-sometime-lover, until he died at the end of the series. Faye did not die, unlike Spike, who perishes when he falls down some stairs.

Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV.

Absolutely nothing I put here can possibly be as strange as the character herself.... ah Hell, let's try anyway. A seven foot tall, 10,000 year-old ex-basketball player, Hindu guru gay alien. Also, a cyborg called "The One" capable of controlling any computer. She went missing as of late 1998, and was last seen in the company of two shifty looking men. Alive at the end of the series, unlike Spike, who meets an untimely end.
Edfated

After the show ended due to Spike's unexpected death, Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV went on to become the new spokesperson for Ben & Jerry's and got all the ice cream she could eat. Spike, however, received none, as he was too dead to eat it.

Ein

The WonderDog™ is stolen property confiscated from a Bandito by Spike, who decided to keep it instead of returning it to its owner. Was named "Ein" because that was the name on the dog food dish that Spike bought for it. Is still animate at the end of the series, unlike Spike, who is dead as a door nail.

Vicious

The main villain of the series. In the end he kills Spike, by chopping open the man's chest. Vicious himself also dies, just like Spike who dies at the end of the show.

Julia

She dies by eating pop rocks and drinking Pepsi at the same time, she dies in the same episode that Spike dies; Spike's original lover... no before death, you sicko!

Laughing Bull

A nomadic Chinaman who predicts that Spike will die, which he does. He is loosely based off of the czar of New Russia Vladimir Putin, who is alive, unlike spike, who is dead

Spike's corpse

A new character introduced to the series when Spike dies.

edit Trivia

  • Spike dies at the end of the show.
  • It is rumored that there's an OVA where Faye and Jet practice alchemy to bring back Spike, but instead get turned into the whiniest (and most angsty) anime characters ever, the Elric Brothers. however, this rumor was cleared up by a cult called "The Will of Norris" and the two were perma-banned from Anime, though there are a few Faye believers out there (see Man-Faye).
  • At the end of the show Spike dies.
  • Unbeknownst to many viewers, Spike was a reverse necrophiliac, as hinted by his calm and peaceful philosophy on life.
  • Spike, at the end of the show, dies.
  • It is also rumored that Spike was a human born on Mars, that is only a rumor.
  • Spike dies at the end of the show.
  • Laughing Bull is quite the wise mentor who predicts Spike's death, but as he never lifts a finger to warn Spike that he is going to die, he is also quite the douchebag.

edit On Spike Dying

It is widely agreed upon that Spike dies at the end of the series.

“Spike dies.”
“SPIKE DIES?!!”
“He went out with a bang.”
“I came from the future to warn Spike that he dies, but I was too late and found Spike to have already died and is now dead.”
~ Future Simon
“He'll always be a hero, even after his death.”
~ Joey Wheeler
“The series is spectacular, ahh.. really, something amazing. I thought I'd written it, at first. I soon realized, of course, that it could not have been mine.. sigh.. as I've never directed a children's program. Its still very good though... Oh, and Spike dies at the end.”

edit Critical Reaction to Cowboy Bebop

Unlike the larger body of mainstream anime, Cowboy Bebop is fairly free of annoying, bitchy female characters, tiresome "chibi" segments, and protagonists alive at the end. This unprecedented level of quality led to its banning in Japan, and an official apology from the Emperor to Otaku worldwide. However, despite its critics, it started a new trend for anime where the main character dies at the end of the show, like Spike, who happens to die in Cowboy Bebop.
