9

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.

Question: Why were the dolls sent out after the scientist made them? Why didn't they stay with the scientist so he could explain everything?

YellowBird

Answer: They were sent out into the world to create a new world for themselves. Every time the scientist created a doll, he transferred part of his soul into the doll bringing it to life but leaving him weaker. After creating 9 and transferring the piece of his soul into 9, he died so they would never have found out what they were created for.
