Simple Rick sports a light blue colored collared shirt and dark blue pants, reminiscent of the Rick from Rick's flashback in "The Rickshank Rickdemption", but different from him, as his shirt is a lighter tone of blue.
As seen through one of his memories, Simple Rick appeared to have been an oddity in all of the other Ricks as he enjoyed a vastly different lifestyle from them as he was a family man and loving father, without any apparent interest to science. He built a toy made of wood in his garage and gave it to little Beth as her birthday present, to which the latter joyfully accepted which caused Simple Rick to cry tears of joy.
Simple Rick appears in the Simple Rick's Wafers ad and the ad shows how the Simple Rick's Wafers are made. He was originally from earth, but 60 iterations from the finite curve, meaning Simple Rick is genetically identical to other Ricks but was somewhat a different person. It is revealed that he was contained in a room, strapped to a chair, and wore a helmet that forces him to relive the same happy memory of little Beth’s birthday party over and over again. The brain chemicals that produce his happiness were liquified by a machine attached to his helmet and was made into the primary ingredient for Simple Rick's wafers. He appears again later after Rick J-22 killed The Regional Manager Rick. As Rick J-22 was later cornered in the flavor core, he was J-22’s only hostage. After Rick J-22's demands of a portal gun was met, he attempted to rescue Simple Rick with it by firing a supposed portal to “freedom” and pushed him in. Unfortunately, the portal gun was actually hacked as its coordinates were locked on to the Blender Dimension, and Simple Rick was torn into shreds within seconds.
- He is similar to the Rick seen in "The Rickshank Rickdemption." It is possible that Rick's fabricated backstory is based on Simple Rick's story.
- It is likely he never invented inter-dimensional travel.
- It is unknown whether his death was to test where the portal goes, an accident, or intended as a mercy killing.
- Another theory is that the 'fabricated backstory' Rick C-137 used in The Rickshank Rickdemption was actually partly true. The theory states that Rick C-137, who at the time was still working with the citadel, was sent to bring Simple Rick into the fold. However when Simple Rick refused, C-137 proceeded kill his version of Diane and Beth by blowing them up with bomb and kidnapped him to bring him to the citadel where he was eventually used by Rick D. Sanchez III to be the flavor core of Simple Rick's Wafer Cookies.
