Kirby's hamster friend from Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3. Rick doesn't slip on icy surfaces, and when Kirby steals a power from an enemy, Rick combines with the power and can do cool attacks:

  • Cutter: Rick throws Kirby like a boomerang, and can control Kirby's height a little bit by jumping.
  • Fire: Rick shoots a flurry of fireballs.
  • Ice: Rick curls up and, with Kirby, becomes a snowman! Anyone who touches the ice pellets circling around them becomes frozen.
  • Needle: Rick grows spikes like a porcupine, hurting anyone behind him.
  • Parasol: Kirby turns into a ball and rolls on top of a parasol that Rick balances on his nose. Anyone touching Kirby or the parasol is hurt.
  • Spark: Rick shoots a beam that circles about 90 degrees clockwise from his mouth to the ground.
  • Stone: Rick turns into a boulder and Kirby runs on top of it, rolling over any enemy that stands in his way.

Rick also appears in the cartoon series Kirby: Right Back at Ya! He has apparently developed an Australian accent...
