The Scientist Formerly Known as Rick first appeared in Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind as a variation of Rick who denounced the name Rick. He was against the Council of Ricks as noted by Rick (C-137). He was killed by Evil Rick.
- This Rick was a parody of Prince, as evidenced by his clothing, hair style, and moniker. The name also derives off of a nickname people called Prince when his artist name was a symbol.
- Despite being dead in the series, The Scientist Formerly Known as Rick appears in the Rick and Morty game, Pocket Mortys. Here, he is referred to as The Scientist Known as Rick, hinting the game takes place before Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind or that the game is it's own timeline where he is still alive.
