Childrick of Mort, the ninth episode of the fourth season of Rick and Morty, may have mentioned the movie Dragon Ball Z: The battle of the gods, at least as stated by the American voice actor Sean Schemmel. A scene in particular in which Rick fights with a god similar to Zeus in fact, would remember very much the clash between Goku and Beerus.

In the second half of the episode in question, Rick finds himself in space and decides to face Reggie, the god responsible for the planet Gaia. The battle between the two has some similarities with the final battle of the Dragon Ball film, especially when Rick decides to free himself from the opponent's hold biting his hand.

Rick and Morty is not a new TV series on these types of quotes. Fans will remember dozens of tributes to mainstream movies or series such as Inception, Futurama or The Simpsons, as well as quotes from Marvel Comics products or other Japanese anime, PokΓ©mon of all. Sean Schemmel has even proposed several times to take part in the cast of the television series, reflecting the great estimates proved against the product of Justin Roiland is Dan Harmon.

And what do you think of it? Did you read the quote? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below! In case you were a fan of the Toriyama film then, we remind you that there is also an anime comics version published in Italy by the publisher Star Comics.
