The Top Ten

1 Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

One of the best characters in all of fiction cartoon or otherwise. You can't help but love the guy.

We share name, he is omnipotent

Rick, bro. RICK

I don't know why I even looked at this the answer was obvious - money_face

2 Morty Smith Morty Smith

As much as I love Rick I gotta say, the writers are right when they say people relate to the sidekicks over the genius. He has such a tragic life when I think about it, the only person in his entire universe that is truly his own is his grandpa, yeah his family love him but they'll never be his. And the one person he probably looks up to and loves the most, Rick, has issues showing his appreciation and feelings out front. I can't imagine what Morty would do without his Grandpa.

But what I'm getting at, is I love this little sack of sadness, happiness and dumbo.

I think Rick would be a the best character in any other context. I just love morty! He's not too relateable but he's great to watch!

I do prefer Rick over Morty. But Morty has gotta be the most relatable cartoon charter ever. He's socially awkward but still knows how to stand up for himself

How can Jerry be above Morty?

He got it right: existence is pain

4 Jerry Smith Jerry Smith

I personally hate Jerry, he reminds me of jar jar binks because he always gets in the way and has no positive outcome and he is not a necessary character to the series

Jerry should be 2. Only 2.

The show feels the need to have him for some reason - money_face

5 Summer Smith Summer Smith



M YAS SUMMER! I hated her at first cause she was just that typical annoying big sister and she was plain without characters. I liked her more as the seasons went on and in Season 3 Episode 1 I really respected her in that episode. She was willing to DIG UP RICKS GRAVE to get him back and BREAK INTO THE GALATIC FEDERATION! Like damn girl. I think we were all rooting for Summer in that episode. Anyways I'm really exicted to see more of her character in season 3! - RedBanshee

I have a lot of respect for Summer. And I can relate to her a lot. Being an accident myself. She's definitely my second favorite character, After Morty. But before Rick and Beth.

8 Doofus Rick

The only rick that jerry actually liked I hope we see more of him

I hope he didn't die in Season 3

He's a Rick that will always care for you.

A Rick that is caring and kind but dumb.

9 Evil Morty

Money_face, it's not the eyepatch that makes him memorable. It's the fact of how mysterious he is, and how we don't even know his motivations. In my opinion, the best villains that make the biggest impact aren't the ones who have way more screen time. It's the ones that don't have as much screen time and are eventually revealed to be the big bad. Examples of this are as follows:

Thanos (The Avengers, 2012), Professor Callaghan (Big Hero 6), Prince Hans, Lizzie the Crocodile, the Red Death (How To Train Your Dragon), Ebony Maw, even our boy Ripper the Indoraptor. They all had one thing in common. They had so little screen time, yet left a major impact to forever be remembered. Especially Lizzie. She wasn't on screen as much as George or Ralph, but her presence was heavily felt.

Why do u people like him he barely gets any screen time and we don't know anything about him. What does wearing an eye patch automatically make you edgy? - money_face

Evil Morty is by far the most interesting character in my opinion due to the mystery surrounding him which allows for fan speculation.

We need to see more of one of the best characters of the show.

22 Stealy

Stealing office supplies since 19xx

23 Abradolf Lincler

Best character idea ever conceived - kempokid

It's a stupid idea, but at the same time it's so ' genius

24 Dr Wong

She treated rick like a child seriously - money_face

Dr. Wong "beat" Rick at his own game because she wasn't playing it, something that no other character in the series was able to do.

25 Pencilvester

Lol I love this hunk of sponge

He's like Mr. Poopybutthole but ten times better.

26 Gene Vagina

Already on da list - Spongehouse

27 Million Ants

Wiggly turd man

28 'My Man!' Mailman
29 Sleepy Gary

This guy was weird - Spongehouse

Maybe we,ll get to see... chewbacca

30 Ants In My Eyes Johnson

I'm Ants in my Eyes Johnson! Everything's black! I can't see a thing! And also, I can't feel anything either, [sets aflame] Did I mention that? But that's not as catchy as having ants in your eyes, so... that always goes... y'know, off by the wayside! I can't feel, it's a very rare disease, all my se- all my nerves, they don't allow for the sensation of touch! So I never know what's going on! Am I standing, sitting? I don't know!

31 Black Mailman

My man

Myy man!

32 Butter Passing Robot

45 The President
46 Noob Noob
47 Gearhead

What a man honestly what a man, "have you heard about the gear wars? " "oh boy have I got a story for you"

48 Beth Smith/Sanchez

The only bad character on the show. It would be perfect without here in it - Spongehouse

I hate people like Beth I think Jerry is worse because he's annoying but Beth just acts like everything is rock's fault. I really like how rick calls her stone cold stevostine though it was perfect insult - money_face

Rick and Morty is an amazing show, but Beth is just awful. She's almost never likable. While Jerry is a douche, he still has a lot of charm, and is compassionate. Beth is just soulless. - mtndewlord

Beth is definitely an underrated character. As much as I dislike her, I feel sorry for her. Her dad left her at a young age and finally came back decades later. Beth is trapped in a train wreck of a marriage with one of my favourite characters, Jerry.. but they love each other. All she wants is to keep her dad and for her kids to be happy.

My man! - venomouskillingmachine
