Rick D. Sanchez III shared the general appearance of Rick Sanchez, though he wears a purple suit with green under shirt and green tie, purple top hat, and carries a gold cane quite similar to Willy Wonka.
Due to being the owner of Simple Rick‘s Wafers and a member of the Shodow Council of Ricks, Rick D. Sanchez III was extremely wealthy and powerful. Despite initially appearing kind and charitable to Rick J-22, it’s made obvious that it’s nothing more than an act as he like most other Ricks is actually cruel and greedy, as shown when it’s revealed earlier that the primary ingredient of his company’s wafers were actually the drops made from the pleasant memories of Simple Rick who was held prisoner and forced to live through the same memories for each day of his life.
Rick D. Sanchez III first appeared when he interrupted the SWAT Team Rick who was in the process of entering the flavor core and taking out Rick J-22 (after the latter accidentally executed his only hostage, Simple Rick). After seemingly pardoning Rick J-22, he took J-22 outside to the cheer of J-22’s coworkers and gave the terrorist a new limo. This however turned out to be nothing more than a trick as Rick D. Sanchez soon tazed J-22 and made him the replacement flavor of the flavor core. Afterwards, Sanchez arrived late at a meeting between the Shadow Council of Ricks and the Citadel’s new president, Evil Morty. Shortly arriving, he raised his hand in agreement with Garment District Rick and was then promptly executed along with all but two members of the Shadow Council of Ricks upon the Evil Morty’s orders. The dead council members and hundreds of other bodies were then flushed out into space.
- His appearance is a reference to Willy Wonka, a fictional character who runs a large and successful company that produces sweets and The Warden of Superjail!
- The D in his name is a reference to business magnate John D. Rockefeller who ran a monopoly on oil and became the wealthiest American in history at a networth of about $340 billion.
