|~ Evil Morty's famous speech after becoming President of the Citadel of Ricks.|
Evil Morty is the overarching antagonist in the cartoon series Rick and Morty, appearing as the main antagonist of the episodes "Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind" and "The Ricklantis Mix-Up".
He is the creator of Evil Rick and the one truly responsible for the deaths of several Ricks from different universes. Originally a serial killer who targeted Ricks and abducted Mortys, Evil Morty managed to escape being captured and get elected the first President of the Citadel of Ricks.
He was voiced by Justin Roiland who also voiced every other version of both Rick and Morty.
Evil Morty has the same appearance as the original Morty with a yellow shirt and dark blue pants with short brown hair, but with an eyepatch. He later removes the eyepatch after Evil Rick was destroyed and instead wears a regular dark gray colored suit and belt with a red tie.
Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind
Evil Morty made his grandfather Evil Rick to cover him in case his plans were discovered.
For an unknown reason, Evil Morty was intent on killing Ricks and torturing their grandsons Mortys. Using Evil Rick, he successfully killed twenty-seven Ricks and kidnapped their grandsons Mortys. Rick (C-137) was blamed for the deaths and was hunted by the Council of Ricks.
After Evil Rick's death, the Council of Ricks returned the Rick-less Mortys to their families to live out the rest of their lives, including Evil Morty. By the time all the Mortys were boarding ships to depart to their lives, the Council of Ricks had discovered that Evil Rick was a remotely controlled robot that acted under the orders of someone else. The last time we see Evil Morty, he removes his eyepatch - which holds the transmitter for Evil Rick - and destroys it, revealing him to be the controller of Evil Rick. Evil Morty then turns to board the departing ships, looking identical to the rest of the Mortys.
The Ricklantis Mix-Up
In "The Ricklantis Mix-Up", Evil Morty secretly develops an alter-ego to become presidential candidate for an election for the newly democratic Citadel of Ricks. The Campaign Manager Morty is in charge of a candidate from the Morty Party, though he does not take his own candidate seriously at first. But despite mockery from Ricks and even other Mortys, his candidate (who is actually Evil Morty in disguise) makes a rousing speech about the class divide between the various Ricks and Mortys on the Citadel during a debate, which earns him lots of praise and support. After the speech, Evil Morty promptly fires his Campaign Manager, and he is rendered jobless.
Campaign Manager Morty is depressed, drinking in a bar when an Investigator Rick gives him a file revealing the candidate's true nature. Horrified at the truth, Campaign Manager Morty tries to assassinate Evil Morty to stop him from getting into office and is promptly arrested. Unfortunately for him, Evil Morty survived the assassination attempt and won the election. Campaign Manager Morty is killed by the Rick Secret Service agents and ejected into space. His body is one of the many bodies floating out of the Citadel's airlocks in the aftermath of the new dictatorship's purge. Also among the dead, was Investigator Rick who was possibly killed for his involvement of uncovering Evil Morty's secret.
After the Shadow Council of Ricks revealed themselves as the true power behind the citadel, and informed Evil Morty that he would answer to them, the newly-elected president had all of them executed, save for two, who did not share the same sentiment as their fellow councilors.
- In "The Ricklantis Mix-Up" Evil Morty's plot to take over the Citadel was reminiscent of Frank Underwood, the protagonist villain in House of Cards.
- It was theorized Evil Morty was the same Morty from the opening credits where he and his Rick were running from giant frog monsters and Morty was left behind to be eaten alive given that both of them wore black shoes while the main Morty wore white ones.
- This also tied into theories that the main Rick on the show had already gone through multiple versions of his grandson Morty, each of them presumably having died and Evil Morty was the only previous Morty of Rick C-137 to have survived, albeit left forever scarred both physically and mentally to the point of seeking revenge on all the Central Finite Curve's Ricks as he believed they treated their Mortys as nothing more than sidekicks and disposable tools.
