RICK’S INVENTION: SEASON TWO

As always, Rick has many inventions up the wazoo. Let’s see what season two has to offer.

Spacetime Computer

First Appearance: “A Rickle in Time”

A computer Rick built that can keep track of spacetime anomaly, particularly if their dimension somehow splits in two (or more), forcing anyone caught in it to exist outside of space and time.

Time Crystal Gun

First Appearance: “A Rickle in Time”

When Rick thinks his spacetime counterpart is planning to murder him, he jerry-rigs a normal gun with the time crystal so he can shoot outside of his dimension and kill his other self first.

He later uses that same time crystal on his cellphone to call himself and smooth things over.

Anti-Matter Gun

First Appearance: “Mortynight Run”

Created for Krombopulos Michael, the gun can shoot through creatures born of anti-matter. It was specifically designed to assassinate “Fart”, a gaseous creature, but Krombopulos is accidentally killed before he gets the chance. Eventually Morty ends up using it on “Fart” once he finds out about the latter’s intent to rid the universe of all carbon-based life.

Alien Translator Device

First Appearance: “Auto-Erotic Assimilation”

Tired of Jerry and Beth’s petty arguments, Blim Blam takes Rick’s alien translator and angrily tells them off. He storms off, but not before swiping the device for his own use. Maybe it’ll be easier for him to communicate with the human adults before he eats their babies.

Laser Machine

First Appearance: “Auto-Erotic Assimilation”

After Unity dumps him again, a depressed Rick saunters into his garage to work on a weapon. He tests it on an alien first before he tries to kill himself with it. Too drunk and upset, Rick barely misses the laser and wallows in self-pity instead.

Particle Beam/Snake Holster Combo

First Appearance: “Get Schwifty”

When Rick needed to ward off the President’s security guards, he transformed a couple of them into snakes to serve as a warning. His intention, for better or worse, were noble. Rick informes the President of the Cromulons and eventually saves the world with Morty through the power of song.

Frustrated that his plans were either ignored or inefficient, General Nathan tries to kill Rick for being the arbiter of this ridiculous plan. Rick uses the same device on him that he did with the security guard, except he didn’t turn into a snake. Turns out the wristwatch is actually a Particle Beam; he had a snake holster strapped to his leg the whole time.

The President was greatly amused.

Microverse Battery

First Appearance: “The Ricks Must Be Crazy”

When Rick was creating the battery, he placed a spatial tessullated void inside a modified temporal field inside of it. That in turn created life, resulting in a small Microverse. Rick took advantage of the people living there by exploiting them to unknowingly charge his car battery and occasionally his cellphone.

Goober Steps

First Appearance: “The Ricks Must Be Crazy”

In order to charge his Microverse battery, Rick tricked the people of the verse by giving them the gift of electricity. Disguised as a “benevolent alien”, Rick handed the denizens the Goober Steps, a machine that requires the Microverse folks to repeatedly step on it, creating electric flow that charges their hometown. None of them are aware that it also benefits Rick, too. Morty thinks this is slavery, just with a few extra steps.

Mecha Suit

First Appearance: “The Ricks Must Be Crazy”

Just to prove Rick’s talent for MacGuyvering can extend to anything, he managed to create a mech suit using whatever was available in the middle of the woods. Stuck with his rival, Zeep Xanflorp, the two duke it out with their inventions until Morty puts a stop to it.

The mech holds a number of weapons such as a vine grappling hook, a catapult of spears, and a container for venomous snakes.

Car Morty

First Appearance: “The Ricks Must Be Crazy”

A long time ago, Rick implanted microchips into Morty’s body that would alter his DNA and transform him into a car. In the middle of a pursuit, Rick urges Morty to turn into a vehicle so they can catch up. Because he’s hearing about it for the first time, Morty is too shocked to concentrate. Rick takes a taxi instead.

During the after-credits for “The Ricks Must Be Crazy”, a distant car lock sound subconsciously forces Morty to turn into a car in the middle of class. As the students look on in horror, Morty silently resigns himself to his fate.

Operation Phoenix

First Appearance: “Big Trouble in Little Sanchez”

After inputting his mind into a younger clone of himself, Rick stored his older body in a stasis pod so he could go back to it after he helped his grandkids with a vampire problem. Trouble is, Tiny Rick liked his youthfulness too much and stayed longer than anticipated. Not helping is his subconscious cries for help, wishing he was back to who he was or at worst, dead.

Summer figures it out first and with her brother’s help, convinces him to return to his original body. Back to his old self – figuratively and literally – Rick reveals this was part of a grander plan: Operation Phoenix. He had created several clones of himself of various age at some point, but now realizes it’s a bust. Rick ends his project with by violently hacking his own clones.

Battle Armors

First Appearance: “Look Who’s Purging Now”

Knowing he and Morty would be in a real jam, Rick sent a beacon off to Summer with a message. She in turn sent him a package under his orders. The box contains a platform that when stepped on fuses a hi-tech armor for any user; a very good thing to possess since they’re in a planet that is in the middle of a Purge.

Using their vast arsenal, Rick and Morty laid waste to the bloodthirsty townsfolk until they stumble upon Arthricia, a native who had stolen their spaceship. Morty, already heated from the stress, nearly does her in until Rick knocks him out. Arthricia ends up donning Morty’s armor to stop the Purge tradition, killing the rich civilians who hosted it in the first place.

Microscope

First Appearance: “The Wedding Squanchers”

When Rick and the Smiths land on the Cob Planet, the former uses a microscope to analyze one of the many Blanks-on-a-Cob. With it, he determines that everything is on a cob. He quickly panicks and orders his family back in the spaceship so they can hightail it out of here.
