1 (voiced by Christopher Plummer) sacrifices himself so that 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) can remove the talisman from the evil machine. 9 removes the talisman and uses it to recover the souls of his friends and then the machine is destroyed. 9 releases the souls of 1, 2 (Martin Landau), 5 (John C. Reilly), 6 (Crispin Glover) and 8 from the talisman and they ascend. Rain starts to fall and in the rain drops there's little green organisms (implying even bacterial organisms were killed during the war) that will restore life to the world. 7 (voiced by Jennifer Connelly) asks "What do we do now?" and 9 says that it's up to them to rebuild the world.
