On-Screen Appearance

Garage Space

Rick jumps out of his ship as it flies by.

Special Attacks

Neutral Special- M-M-Morty!

Rick calls for Morty, who falls out of a portal and right next to him. Unlike other Ice Climber-esque duos, Morty doesn't follow Rick around. To reposition a Morty, Rick can grab and throw him. Morty can act as a human shield to defend Rick against projectiles. When Rick presses B again while Morty is out, he can enter a stance which allows him to order Morty to attack for him. If Morty is KO'd, another one won't spawn until 15 seconds pass.

Move Origin

This comes from Morty's appearance in the show in general. In the show, Mortys are used as a camouflage to disguise their brainwaves from other Ricks in other dimensions, as their brainwaves are complementary to each other. This is referenced in their playstyle as Rick uses Morty as a defensive shield from projectiles and other attacks.

Morty Neutral B- Rushed Licensed Inverntory

A teleportation dryer appears in front of Morty, having him put a random item into it, which automatically teleports to Rick, allowing him to throw it. The item varies from an alien bug, a sock, or a "relaxing massager", however they all do the same damage/knockback. This move also allows Morty to pick up a trap he's next to and teleport it to Rick, allowing him to use it.

Move Origin

In the free-to-play Adult Swim game, "Rick and Morty's Rushed Licensed Adventure" Morty is able to store items that he finds in his inventory. The use of the teleportation dryer however, comes from Chapter 4 of the game. In it, Morty is captured by sock people and Rick must use the dryer in his garage to transport items to Morty for him to use. In Lawl, it works backwards, with Morty giving things to Rick, instead of the other way around. The items Morty can give Rick are also references to the items obtained in the actual game.

Morty Side B- Run Morty! Run!

Morty dashes forward a short, damaging anyone in the way. This allows Rick to reposition Morty from a long distance.

Move Origin

Morty in general is capable of running like any other human being, but the move mainly comes from the pilot episode where Rick tells Morty to run for his life not once, but twice. One time when they're being attacks by an unidentified monster and another when they're being chased by The Galactic Federation.

Morty Up B- They're Just Robots Morty!

Rick throws a laser gun to Morty, allowing him to shoot it every second or so at opponents, similar to Frollo's Guards. Rick can't command Morty while he's holding a gun. Pressing B next to a Morty will remove the gun. Doing this next to a Morty will shove a Mega Seed up his ass, doubling his damage and halving knockback taken, however after 15 seconds, he loses all motor skills, becoming useless until he's KO'd.

Move Origin

Both parts of the move come from the pilot episode. Rick hands Morty a gun and tells him to cover him while he's typing in the coordinates to their homeworld. Morty is reluctant at first, but then Rick tells Morty that it's okay to shoot them because they're just robots. The second part of the move is in reference to when Rick needs Morty to shove the Mega Seeds up his ass due to them needing to get through customs to get home. These seeds gave Morty temporary super-intelligence near the end of the episode, but once they wore off, Morty completely lost his ability to control his body.

Morty Down B- Turn Into a Car Morty!

Morty turns into a car. A strong but delayed attack that can set up opponents.

Move Origin

This comes from the episode "The Ricks Must Be Crazy". In it, Rick needs Morty to turn into a car so that they can beat Zeep Zanflorp to the miniverse battery. Rick finds a taxi before Morty can do anything though. At the very end of the episode, Morty accidentally turns into a car in the middle of class and ends up injuring a student.

Side Special- Sanchez Ski Shoes

Rick dashes forward on rocket powered Ski Shoes. Similarly to Bowser Jr's Side B, Rick can jump while dashing at the cost of cancelling the attack. If Morty is in the way, Rick will grab him and take him along, dealing extra damage to opponents.

Move Origin

Rick briefly uses these in the episode "The Ricks Must Be Crazy". He tells Morty to get on his back and quickly boosts himself through the building, up walls and on ceilings.

Up Special- Portal Gun

Rick plants a portal downwards and jumps into it, jumping back out in a direction pointed at by the control stick. Like the Side B, if Morty is next to him, he'll take him with him.

Move Origin

Rick's Portal Gun is one of the most iconic gadgets of the series. Rick uses this in every episode in order to move through different dimensions in search for his supplies, as a quick escape, or just as a way to fuck around.

Down Special- Time Unstabilization

The longer a match goes on for, Rick's time will become more and more unstable. Depending on how long it takes to press Down B, Rick will split into several varying possibilities. This gives Rick more range on all of his attacks without extending his hurtbox. His time will re-stabilize after 20 seconds.

  • 0-10 seconds = No Possible Ricks
  • 11-25 seconds = 1 Rick
  • 26-40 seconds = 2 Ricks
  • 41-60 seconds = 3 Ricks
  • 60+ seconds = 4 Ricks

Move Origin

This comes from the episode "A Rickle in Time" where after the events of the Season 1 finale, Rick, Morty and Summer all find themselves in a situation where their uncertainty creates a rip in time, resulting in different varying possible events all happening at once. Sometimes it's subtle, such as the positioning of the characters, and sometimes it's drastic, such as when Rick tries to shoot his other possibilities to save himself.

Final Smash- The Recipe for Concentrated Dark Matter

Rick escapes on an escape pod, leaving Morty with a fuel drive. Rick will then drop off and list off the ingredients for "Concentrated Dark Matter" for Morty to place into the drive. After adding the last ingredient, the drive explodes, KOing Morty while heavily damaging anyone nearby.

Move Origin

This comes from the episode "M-Night Shyam-Aliens!" where Rick has been captured by a group of intergalactic scammers, after his recipe for Concentrated Dark Matter. At the end of the episode, Rick tricks the aliens into thinking the recipe is two parts plutonic quartz, one part cesium and an entire bottle of water. Unknowing to them, this recipe just creates a giant explosion that kills them all in an instant.

Rick and Morty Codec

MORTY: Oh, hey Rick! Is that us?

RICK: *URP* That's right Morty! As you know Morty, there's an infinite amount of universes. That means there's a lot of different versions of you and me on different timelines. These ones just so happened to enter the same ring in the same dimension as us.

MORTY: Wow Rick, that's pretty convenient. But, why are they colored so weirdly?

RICK: Infinite universes means an infinite color palette Morty.

MORTY: Well, that's true. I guess we already know all there is to know about them since they're us... right?

RICK: No Rick or Morty is created equal Morty. Let's show him who's the Rickest Rick in the universe!

MORTY: And you know, the Rickest Rick's got the Mortyest Morty!
