Why Rick And Morty Are The Same Person

    Rick and Morty is one of the wildest, most imaginative TV shows out there, so much so that it has spawned more fan theories than almost any other TV show ever made! And for good reason! Just about anything that you can imagine could happen in the multiverse of Rick and Morty, and even some things you might never have thought possible. But one fan theory in particular might just be the Rickest of all! And that theory is the one that Rick and Morty might actually be the same person!

    Yup, you heard right! Some fans think that Morty is actually his own grandfather, or that Rick is his own grandson. While Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have gone on record about how they don’t want to get into the messy business of time travel, this theory wonders if Rick used time travel once, to go back in time and change his own future. See, some think that there is a possibility that Rick never came back to his family, and that Morty grew up without the influence of this grandfather. Without it, he became isolated and miserable, but interested in science. Over time, his life got so bad that Morty went to the utmost extremes in order to stop himself from winding up the way he did, which meant going back in time and impersonating his grandfather, in order to show himself the wonders of the universe!

    Okay, so that’s just the jist of it, the real theory is a whole lot more complicated. Check out the video below for the full explanation!

              This theory is let’s assume everything that would make this theory possible theory. If this were all true maybe it makes sense but we have no reason to assume these things

                                  it's true, if you were forced to spend time with your past self you would be so bored from knowing all your reactions that you would be a total douchebag to your former self

                                    However here’s a missing piece: rick is a dick to jerry so that Jerry gets so so upset he leaves- by stealing the portal gun. In the process of leaving he accessed his stolen memories and his knowledge returns to him, also realizing that his wife is Jessica whos memories were also altered. But he leaves and goes to a new universe and is upset for leaving everything and everyone behind. Why he’s a dick to new jerry and nice to his daughter. That’s also why he tries to kill himself in the first few episodes

                                        I would say the Morty-like Rick (who doesn't have a Morty) is probably a messed up experiment that joined the two.

                                                  is nobody talking about the fact that Rick is Beth's father and Morty is Beth's son?

                                                    i believe this theory is quite believable at first but to i possible but highly unlikely because so much has to align for this to be true in every single of the infinite realities!

                                                          And because this video now exists, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon will completely avoid actually using this theory in order to surprise us with something unpredictable.
