Simple Rick is a Rick that appears in the episode "The Ricklantis Mixup."
Simple Rick sports a light blue colored collared shirt and dark blue pants, reminiscent of the Rick from Rick's flashback in "The Rickshank Rickdemption", but different from him, as his shirt is a lighter tone of blue.
Simple Rick appears in the Simple Rick's Wafers ad and the ad shows how the Simple Rick's Wafers are made. It is revealed that he was contained in a room, strapped to a chair, and wears a helmet that forces him to relive the same happy memory with baby Beth over and over. The brain chemicals that produce his happiness were liquified by a machine attached to his helmet, which were the primary ingredient for Simple Rick's wafers. He appears again later after Rick J-22 killed The Regional Manager Rick. He was Rick J-22's only hostage. After Rick J-22's demands are met, he attempts to rescue Simple Rick with the portal gun he got by firing a portal to freedom, and pushing him in. Unfortunately, the portal gun was hacked, its coordinates were locked on the Blender Dimension, and Simple Rick was torn into shreds.
- He is similar to the Rick seen in "The Rickshank Rickdemption." It is possible that Rick's fabricated backstory is based on Simple Rick's story.
- It is likely he never invented inter-dimensional travel.
- It is unknown whether his death was to test where the portal goes, an accident, or intended as a mercy killing.
