Rick is a primary character in Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3, and Kirby Star Allies. He is a large hamster that is best suited for land. Rick teams up with Kirby, and uses a fire breath, ball rock, and more. He also uses Kirby as a boomerang. He is also a minor character in the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime.
This brave hamster will carry Kirby or Gooey on his shoulders. Rick can move on ice without slipping, but while riding on his shoulders Kirby will be unable to float.
Rick made his debut alongside Kirby's other friends, Coo and Kine. He looks like a meek hamster, but when he puffs himself up, he's bigger than Kirby. When he's carrying Kirby on his back, he can mimic Kirby's copy powers with some special moves of his own. Rick's claim to fame is his exceptional traction on icy and sandy surfaces.
Stone or Smash Kirby can transform into a statue of Rick, Coo, and Kine in Kirby's Return to Dreamland and Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, with their own statues in Kirby Super Star and Ultra.
The ability Animal Statues in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards allows Kirby to turn into a stone Rick. He acts like he normally does, but without an ability to use. He can, however, climb up walls if a player holds the +Control Pad against the wall and presses jump in rhythmic succession.
In Kirby: Canvas Curse Rick appears in Paint Panic as one of the paintings Paint Roller draws.
In Kirby Mass Attack, Rick makes a cameo appearance alongside Kine and Coo in Kirby Quest if Kirby is defeated.
Though he is not a playable character in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Rick appears in the Kirby Fighters sub-game (as well as in the downloadable Kirby Fighters Deluxe). In the stage based off of Kirby's Dream Land 3, he occasionally steps through doors and attacks the Kirbys by using his Burning attack: flame breath. He then proceeds to reenter the door he came from.
In Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, Rick will appear as a villager of the city after the defeat of Taranza, sitting at the bench behind the Shrine of Passwords.
In Kirby Battle Royale, Rick appears in Slam Hockey, he can be seen on the left side of the crowd in Normal Arena.
In Kirby Star Allies, Rick appears collectively with Coo and Kine as a Dream Friend. Rick uses the Stone ability and the Sizzle element, and retains the ability to walk on ice without slipping and climb up walls.
In Super Kirby Clash, Rick appears as a resident of the Port Village after Parallel Nightmare has been defeated in The Ruins. He can be seen sitting on the rightmost bench. He, alongside Coo and Kine, also appears as a sticker, which can be purchased from the Shoppe for 20 Gem Apples.
