Reception

Rick Sanchez

The character has received a positive reception. Speaking of Rick’s relatability and likability, Dan Harmon stated that “we’ve all been Rick. But Rick really does have bigger fish to fry than anybody. He understands everything better than us. So you give him the right to be jaded and dismissive and narcissistic and sociopathic”.David Sims of The Atlantic noted Rick’s “bitter amorality” and called the character “a genius who comfortably thinks of himself as the universe’s cleverest man and is grounded only by his empathy toward other people, which he tries to suppress as much as possible”, therefore writing that Rick’s selflessness at the end of the episode “The Wedding Squanchers” is “the most surprising twist possible”
