Zeep Xanflorp is a scientist within Rick's Microverse Battery who creates his own micro-planet power supply called the Miniverse. His development of a new power supply prevents Rick from using his flying car. Zeep is depicted as arrogant and very intelligent, and in many ways a parallel of Rick Sanchez.
Zeep has been shown to be arrogant, self-loathing, and very prideful which is only outshined by his genius. He shares many personality traits with Rick Sanchez and has many traits of the stereotypical genius. Once he figures out the meaning of his universe, he is shown to go from disliking to resenting Rick. Like Rick, Zeep has a vice; opium. While Zeep puts himself above the Miniverse and Teenyverse, he at least cared enough to use his genius to benefit his own society, unlike Rick.
Rick took an immediate disliking to Zeep, due to their alarmingly similar ideas and personalities. While likewise indifferent and somewhat disliking of Rick, due to him only knowing Rick as an alien visitor who granted his planet with an "outdated" power system, Zeep's feelings towards his 'creator' eventually evolve into an outright hatred and resentment, especially once he realizes his universe was only created to power Rick's car. After a duel where Rick bests him, he seems to come to an understanding of how Rick works. At the end of the episode, even though Zeep may not have a better opinion of Rick, he begrudgingly accepts that his fate is in Rick's hands.
When Kyle explains his plan to enslave people in a Teenyverse to make the Flooblecrank in Zeep's Miniverse obsolete, Zeep is appalled at him. He starts to make the same objections that Rick had made to his Miniverse, but then realizes his hypocrisy.
- Zeep's status is only known up to the point when Rick and Morty escaped the Microverse. If the Microverse's time was set to a faster speed than the real world, then Zeep could have potentially grown much older or died by the time of the most recent episode.
