Personality & Characteristics
At first he is shown as a person who feels that working with a partner is unnecessary to win Beybattles. Rick later comes to the realization that no Beyblader can be as powerful as many working together as a team. He doesn't like losing and losers, but is not above swallowing his pride when he himself loses.
He also carries his stereo around whenever he Beybattles. It provides him with extra motivation, and also tends to distract his opponents. Rick is a bull-like strong blader, but he doesn't have respect for the game until he acknowledges its true value.
Rick was raised in a pretty rough neighborhood, where everyone tried their best to make a decent life for themselves. Rick chose the way of the Beyblade, and making it to the World Championships was one way of setting a great example.
He first appears when he teams up with Max and forms the PPB All Starz.
Because the others disapprove of Rick being on the team, he faces off against Eddy to have him kicked off. The battle ends in a tie (though Rick sees it as a win) and he proceeds to smash his own Beyblade afterwards, not believing in bonding with his blade.
He is dominant in the first couple of matches, where he accidentally injures the left arm of Claude from the Barthez Battalion and in his second match where he manhandles Raul of F-Dynasty.
After Max's defeat against Kai, Rick tries to defeat him, but he is defeated by Kai's classy moves.
During the fight against the White Tiger X, he is forced to fight together with Max against Ray and Lee. His dream of becoming the world champion ends when he and Max are defeated by the BBA Revolution.
After the championship ends, he supports the G-Revolution team as they get ready to fight the BEGA League. As the final battle comes near, Crusher and Ming-Ming attempt to weaken Tyson, but Rick stops them along with Lee.
In the final scenes of Beyblade: G-Revolution, Rick is seen beyblading with Carlos in an alley.
Rick's Beyblade is Rock Bison, a large scale unique engine gear beyblade. The blade is brown and has an under ring along with a large attack ring as well, all used for Rick's brute force.
|Lee, Max & Ray||Lose|
|Tyson Granger||No Outcome|
|Crusher & Ming-Ming (tag w/ Lee)||No Outcome|
- Rick is left-handed as his launcher is designed to be used for his left hand on the ripcord. This is backed up by the fact that he carries his stereo with his left arm.
