Rick is a brilliant inventor and scientist, albeit a selfish one. The character travels through dimensions, time, and space alongside his grandson Morty, and the duo get themselves in all sorts of hilarious, horrifying situations. The Adult Swim TV show exploded in popularity from the very start thanks to the ad-libbed nonsense of most of the dialogue, and Rick has been a beloved character ever since. In this game, most of the character's moveset is based on his various gadgets and gizmos seen during the series.

How Do You Win as Rick in MultiVersus?

As a Mage class fighter, Rick makes use of various weapons and gadgets, laying traps and setups from afar rather than relying on melee attacks. He does have some melee options, but his strength is in his wider moveset.

The blaster provides some solid chip damage and his basic three-hit combo is slow but works for when enemies get close. The fart bomb actually has a lot of kill potential, launching enemies up with quite a lot of force. His Up attack, the whip, hits in front as well as up, so you can use it against a very close range enemy as well as for anti-air.

The portal system is a little complex, but they can be a huge benefit to your team. You and an ally can pass through the portals to get out of a sticky situation, and you can also throw/fire projectiles through them to catch enemies off-guard. As many of Rick's moves use projectiles, you can get pretty crazy combining the portals with his other stuff.

Sending out Meeseeks is very handy just to fill up the arena with more obstacles for your opponents, plus they have good knockback. As they count as projectiles, they can also pass through the portals. Playing as Rick is mostly about combining his abilities like the above example to cause chaos and support your teammate.
