Bradley "Brad" is a recurring character in Rick and Morty and Jessica's ex-boyfriend. He is a student at Harry Herpson High School, along with Morty and Summer. He is shown to be a jock who plays football (and possibly other sports) for the high school.
He shoots Morty down when he attempts to ask Jessica to the annual Flu Season Dance in the episode "Rick Potion No. 9", telling him that she's way out of his league. Later, during the dance, he is affected by Rick's love potion, and he becomes infatuated with Morty until being dragged out by Gene Vagina. He shows up at Rick's party in "Ricksy Business", where he starts a fight with Abradolf Lincler.
Brad is a teenage male with black buzzcut hair and a mustache and a beard. He has white ear piercings and he wears a red shirt with a green and white varsity jacket.
Brad is the archetypal tough guy. He talks trash about people, brags about how strong and athletic he is, and he very easily picks fights with other people which he will always let result in violence and swearing that will only spiral more and more wildly out of control as the situation escalates. He is very pretentious, vain and conceited, although his accomplishments don't match his level of self-pride. He is actually kind of a bully, considering that he often picks fights with people who have never affronted him. He has been shown to be somewhat stupid, since he doesn't know the correct terms to use (e.g. replacing "linguist" with "languager").
- It has been confirmed by the Rick and Morty assistant, Tamara, on her tumblr, that Brad and Davin, while presumably being written off the show due to their long absence after Season 1, will return in Season 3 of the show.
- It is revealed in a sneak peek of Season 3 that Jessica breaks up with him.
- Brad appears in the Rickstaverse comic, Holy Holes, buying fake weed from Morty.
- In the episode, "The ABC's of Beth" it is revealed that Brad is dating a blonde haired girl, further confirming that Brad and Jessica have officially broken up.
