Naruto Smith, better known as the Giant Incest Baby, is a recurring character from the animated television show Rick and Morty on Adult Swim. He is the biological son of Summer and Morty Smith, who are siblings, and was introduced in season five of the series where he plays a major role in the story.


Naruto Smith was conceived and born in episode four of season five in Rick and Morty, entitled "Rickdependence Spray." His conception occurred after Summer donated one of her eggs to be enlarged and used as bait for giant sperm monsters that were rapidly destroying the world, unaware that the mutated sperm was Morty’s. The U.S. Army is unable to stop a malformed sperm named Sticky from fertilizing the egg, launching it into space as a solution. In a parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey, the baby is first introduced hovering near a satellite (seen below).[2] In the episode "Gotron Jerrysis Rickvangelion," it is revealed that the government had kidnapped the baby to use as a weapon. Instead, Summer befriends the baby, names him "Naruto" and teaches him to love. Despite inhabiting space, Naruto appears to form a beneficial alliance with his family.[1]

Naruto’s existence, as well as the episode at hand, was met with controversial opinions following its premiere. The earliest meme about Naruto was posted to Reddit's /r/rickandmorty[3] on July 15th, 2021, by u/datadrone. It received 168 upvotes and 14 comments in roughly one month (seen below).
