Robotic Interactive Canine, or simply just R.I.C., is a robotic canine asset with many special features. R.I.C. was scheduled for retirement before being severely damaged while on a mission with Sydney Drew.
In an effort to prevent R.I.C. from being discarded, Sydney turns to Bridge for help. With Boom's technical assistance, Bridge reinvents R.I.C., dubbing him R.I.C. Version 2.0. In his upgraded form, R.I.C. is able to transform into a weapon for the Rangers called the Canine Cannon when the bone-shaped key is placed in his mouth. R.I.C. was later upgraded to be used in the Red Ranger's Battlizer system, forming the Sonic Mode armor. During the final battle with Gruumm, Broodwing and their forces, R.I.C. played a vital role, freeing Boom and Kat from imprisonment, containing Broodwing as the Canine Cannon and fighting to defend Delta Base.
R.I.C. can be transformed into Canine Cannon - a weapon that can fire a powerful energy blast to take down criminals and imprison them in the containment cards instantly.
When called upon by the Red Ranger, the Magna Morpher is released from a compartment on R.I.C.'s back that attaches to the left wrist of the Red Ranger to initiate transformation into Battilizer Cyber Mode.
When needed, the Red Ranger calls for R.I.C. Sonic Mode. To activate, The Red Ranger makes some hand movements and says, "Battlizer, Sonic Mode." The Red Ranger runs with R.I.C. and the Energy Sword disappears before they fly in mid air. R.I.C transforms into battlizer armor and attaches to the Red Ranger. The Red Ranger gains foot armor; R.I.C.'s outer body turns into armor with siren blasters, and R.I.C.'s head and spine become a sword. The Red Ranger then says, "Battlizer, Mode 2, Complete", completing the transformation.
In the Boom! Studios comics, he is upgraded into R.I.C. Version 3.0 and sports a more wolf-like appearance.
