** Probably but cells don't live too long (except for brain cells) so it'ss more like the end of the world after many,many generations. The more dramatic case would be the death of an infant causing a newly formed world to expire too soon.

** Not really. Viruses in the Real World evolve for two things: to make more of themselves and spread to other hosts. A virus that quickly killed its host would severely hamper its own spread (see: Ebola).

* When you think about it, a sentient virus would pride themselves on killing everything, so slowly but surely Thrax aims to try and kill every living thing on Earth.

* Because of AesopAmnesia, in ''OzzyAndDrix'', Frank for some reason starts becoming unhealthy again, and both Ozzy and Drix are carried away by a mosquito to someone else...
** Considering Shane is absent and Ozzy talks about getting promoted out of "snot patrol"(when he should have something much higher after the events of the movie), it's possible this is an alternate universe.

** On that note, are ''all'' the potential Thraxes out there [[AlwaysChaoticEvil just as depraved and evil as he is?]] Are some of them {{Reluctant Psycho}}s who don't want to hurt anyone but know they have to in order to survive (since that's basically how viruses work)? Either way, it's not a pleasant thought...

** The pilot to ''WesternAnimation/OzzyAndDrix'' had them confronting another Red Death-like virus before getting carried off to Hector, so it's possible that Thrax may have already done it offscreen.

** There is another more grim explanation for Frank's declining health. Frank's internal temperature nearly reached 108 during the events of the film, which is deadly. However, if one's internal temperature reaches 104, which Frank's surpassed, that can result in permanent brain damage. This puts a dark contrast on the situation; Frank tried to get healthy but resulting brain damage from his brush with death meant he kept forgetting (from the anthropmorphised cell POV, the brain cell in charge of memory could've been killed and the records or information cataloguing system destroyed) to maintain his new healthy lifestyle or he just discarded the attempts.

* Thrax picking up a bit of DNA from hypothalami as a trophy. In the Real World, some viruses [[TruthInTelevision actually pick up bits of host DNA and carry it with them.]] He also is far more interested in killing than in reproducing and spreading; this means that, like a RealLife super-lethal virus, he wouldn't be able to cause disease in many people (see below).

** If it's any consolation, in the animated spin-off, The City of Hector's mayor deliberately cranks up his phobia of water(gotten after he almost drowned) to keep him out of the pool. Hector overcomes this anyway, so there is some leeway.

** Not really. Viruses in the Real World evolve for two things: to make more of themselves and spread to other hosts. A virus that quickly killed its host would severely hamper its own spread (see: Ebola). In many ways, Thrax actually behaves much more like an engineered bioweapon than like a naturally occurring virus (see ArtMajorBiology entry). Which would mean that he was ''designed'' for killing, and that whoever created him (terrorists, the military, take your pick) has more samples stored away...
** According to {{The Other Wiki}}, bacillus anthracis is a soil-borne bacteria that can be contracted via ingestion and causes death by invoking cold or flu-like symptoms, such as, say, a fever. Bacillus anthracis. Otherwise known as an'''thrax'''. What's even more disturbing? How anthrax was even exposed to the monkey cage at the zoo in the first placed, and how many cases of Thrax are now just waiting to happen...
*** Thrax may be named for anthrax, but he doesn't cause that disease though. He causes an entirely fictional disease, the Red Death.

In many ways, light of the above point, Thrax actually behaves much more doesn't seem like a natural virus. But he could be [[OhCrap an engineered bioweapon than like a naturally occurring virus (see ArtMajorBiology entry). Which would mean that escaped containment or was unleashed]]. If Thrax is not this, he's a case of ArtMajorBiology. If he was ''designed'' for killing, and that whoever created him (terrorists, the military, take your pick) has would likely have more samples stored away...

* When [[spoiler: Thrax]] died in the beaker of alcohol, that's what happens to ''every germ on your body'' whenever you use hand sanitizer. Yikes.
