Rick and Morty co-creator debunks huge Rick Prime theory (exclusive)

Rick and Morty kicked off season 6 of the series with the introduction of a massive new villain, Rick Prime, and the co-creator behind the series has opened up about one of the big theories surrounding this villain ahead of the season’s final episodes. ! Rick Prime’s introduction to the series not only brings a new villain to the proceedings, but opens up a whole new world of potential questions and possibilities about where the animated series might go from this point. At the same time, this new villain has also changed our perspective on how we see Rick and the way he defines himself.

As Rick and Morty preparing to return to Adult Swim with the final episodes of Season 6 starting November 20, ComicBook.com had the chance to Rick and Morty co-creator (and the voice behind Rick Prime) Justin Roiland about the new villain and had to ask if this villain is the “Rickest Rick” that C-137 Rick has always called himself. It turns out that while it’s not confirmation or de-confirmation, the full answer is complicated.

Is Rick Prime the “Rickest Rick”?

When asked if Rick Prime could be considered the “Rickest Rick” in the multiverse, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland began his response with, “It’s interesting because it depends on what your definition of it is. What does that mean? Rickest Rick He’s definitely a scarier Rick He’s devoid of empathy I feel like our Rick we’re following has at least a little bit of that You can tell him as much as he wants to deny it and not eat in it for himself, you can tell there’s a little bit of attachment to this version of the family and this Morty that he has.”

Roiland elaborated on what makes Rick Prime so different from C-137 Rick and went on to say, “This other Rick is diabolical, super intelligent. Obviously a force to be reckoned with. But scarier because there’s none of the humanity in there. I suppose if that’s your definition of being most Rick, then yeah, having no humanity at all. Yeah, it definitely changes how we look at our Rick, definitely a little bit.”

It seems that the definition of “Rickest Rick” has a lot more complications than Rick Prime’s debut, so hopefully we’ll get to see more of the villain as Rick and Morty Season 6 continues and kicks off on Sunday, November 20 at 11 p.m. EST!
