Brick is the male equivalent and the evil counterpart of Blossom. He is the leader of the Rowdyruff Boys and was originally created by Mojo Jojo. After being killed by the Powerpuff Girls' kiss of death, he was reincarnated by HIM and was given a cootie shot to prevent the same mistake to be repeated. Opposed to Blossom's feminine color pink, Brick's color is a masculine fire engine red. His key element is "Puppy Dog's Tail."

Appearance

Brick-first appearance

Brick first appearance in season 1 (The Rowdyruff Boys).

Brick is Blossom's male counterpart, but while he shares her red hair, pink is a traditionally feminine color, so his own color is a more masculine fire engine red, meaning his eye color and shirt are also red. He wears the same shirt with a black stripe, black pants and black sneakers as his brothers. He is the same height and shares the same body shape as them.

In his first appearance, his hair is short and hidden under his cap with only triangular bangs similar to Blossom's. After his reincarnation, Brick's bangs are hidden under his hat, and he has long, jagged hair.

Personality

Brick is crude, gross, and violent. Like his brothers, he finds sadistic pleasure in beating and taunting those around him. In his initial appearance, his personality was closer to both of his brothers; proud, confident in his abilities, and a lust for evil. It is after his reincarnation by HIM that he begins showing a more hot-headed and arrogant side. Like Blossom, Brick is the team leader of the Rowdyruff Boys, but true to form he is much more violent and controlling. Blossom is logical and organized while Brick is short-tempered and reckless. He is overbearing, bossy, and vain; he never asks for input and is the final word on any action. Verbally and physically abusive, he is constantly yelling at his brothers for getting distracted or saying something stupid. Despite all this, in Issue 10 of the IDW Comic, Brick was willing to work alongside the girls and the Iron Viking against the Klin Ton without much convincing. Brick seems to be dumb, because in Bubble Boy he is seen thinking dumb is spelled "d-u-m" (along with Butch) though, Brick is smart, and he hides it to be cool, however he is smart enough to recognize both Mojo and HIM's own ignorance.

History

Blossom kissing Brick

Blossom giving Brick the Kiss of Death.

Created along with his brothers by Mojo in a jail cell, he is the first to speak and hits Mojo for hugging them. They are quickly persuaded into fighting the Powerpuff Girls and help Mojo break out of prison. Upon tracking down the Powerpuffs, they introduce themselves by saying "We're the Rowdyruff Boys and we wanna fight!" before punching the girls. Brick is caught off guard by Buttercup who pins him against a dumpster. Boomer and Butch knock her off and proceed to gang up on her. Expressing his disbelief that the girls didn't cry, he and the boys attack their counterparts. They're shown to be mostly even but when the girls gain the upper hand, Brick gets annoyed. He orders a "Ballistic Barrage," one of the Rowdyruff Boys' team abilities; a disorientating series of jumps before a group pummeling. Knocked down by the Powerpuff's own group attack, they launch a full on charge; swinging Blossom around by her hair, smashing a car and even flying under a woman's skirt. In this fight he is the only one seen using laser-vision, though Boomer possibly uses it off screen.

They "play dirty" by throwing vehicles full of innocent civilians at the girls and then hitting them when they're distracted. Brick watches happily while Boomer and Butch argue over who "got" the girls the best. Drawn out of Townsville to protect the people, Brick orders them to "kick in the afterburners" to overtake the girls, the "smoke" leaving them blinded allows the boys to charge up and dive bomb them, smashing them into the ground with such a strong force they cause an explosion. The girls are left battered and broken in the wake. The boys fly off to celebrate with Mojo.

Seen again plotting world domination over juice, they're shocked to see the Powerpuffs heading straight for them. Expecting another fight the boys are horrified to find the girls looking feminine and flirting with them. Managing to land a kiss on their cheeks, Brick and his brothers are so disgusted they start screaming and glowing their signature colors. They finally explode back down into their base elements, defeated and gone for good...or maybe not.

Brick2

Brick since "The Boys are Back in Town."

Their second debut in "The Boys are Back in Town" shows off their new appearances and more individualized personalities. Brick is finally shown to be the bossy and short-tempered leader, hitting and yelling at his brothers for messing up. When they begin fighting, Brick negates Blossom's laser-beam with one of his own, in a distinctly lighter, neon shade of red. While initially not taken seriously, the girls accidentally make them stronger by continuously kissing them on the cheek trying to blow them up, like last time. This only makes the boys stronger, thanks to HIM's cootie shot and the girls are quickly overpowered. Brick focuses his attacks on Blossom, beating her up before finally pinning her down and threatening to spit on her. He is defeated by Blossom pulling his pants down, which causes so much embarrassment that he loses power and shrinks. Finally less than an inch tall, his brothers are reduced to tears. He angrily tells them to cut it out before breaking down himself.

In the episode "Boy Toys", the Rowdyruffs are having some trouble with the Powerpuff Girls. They impress Princess with their powers, but Brick is quick to brush her off when she asks to join them. Later on they are destroying a burger joint and are about to move on to video games when the girls arrive in powerful vehicles. Impressed, the boys steal the crafts and entertain themselves by attacking and destroying the other vehicles instead of the Powerpuff Girls, reducing each other to paralyzing laughter.

The mall on fire can wait; I'm on a wonderful fanfiction date.

Another more interesting appearance is in the episode "The City of Clipsville," in which Brick and his brothers appear in a "flashback" of the Powerpuffs in the time when they become the Powerpuff Teens. The boys seem more like typical high-school bad boys. They show romantic interest in their PPG counterpart and arrange a date. (This was an obvious response to the fan letters of a Powerpuff/Rowdyruff pairing). In the episode "Bubble Boy" Brick sends Boomer to get sweets only for him to be captured by the Powerpuff Girls. Bubbles disguises herself as Boomer and while the boys are fooled, Bubbles doesn't make a very good Rowdyruff. Brick notices on several occasions something isn't right, especially after Bubbles freaks out over a cockroach, something Boomer would never do.

"Custody Battle" is a Rowdyruff Boys-centric episode, where the boys make their final appearance on the show. Mojo finally discovers they have been reborn only to be laughed away after claiming to be their father. HIM appears and while the boys seem more than happy with their new "parent" a fight soon breaks out over who is more suited to be their father. HIM and Mojo continually try to impress them with evil deeds (usually against the unfortunate Mayor) and inventions, but things finally go too far when HIM sends the Earth hurtling towards the sun. Another childish shouting match breaks out and the boys have had enough. They tell their "parents" to be quiet and Brick openly declares that the only evil they care about is the destruction of the Powerpuff Girls, then they fly away leaving a proud HIM and Mojo behind. This is the final episode to feature the Rowdyruff Boys and the only to not show the Powerpuff Girls on screen, acknowledged with the final pose being the boys backed by a skull and crossbones backdrop and the ending line; "The day is doomed, thanks to the Rowdyruff Boys".

Trivia

  • He is the first one to speak out of the other Rowdyruff Boys, similar to how Blossom is the first to speak of the Powerpuff Girls.
  • He is the only member of the Rowdyruff Boys who's rear has been exposed.
  • Brick has never been seen without his red hat, even though the anime Brick did take off his cap when he and his brothers stole the Powerpuff Girls Z's uniforms.
  • The first Powerpuff he was hit by was Buttercup.
  • In all of his appearances all of his hair has only been seen in one episode in Powerpuff Girls Z.
  • In his first two appearances, he would call out attacks but after The Boys are Back in Town, he and his brothers would just fight head on.
  • Brick appears to be the most intelligent out of the trio.
  • He told off both of his fathers, Mojo and Him, in his last appearance.
  • In most of his appearances he is shown hitting Boomer (in The Boys are Back in Town he smacks him in the face, in Bubble Boy he throws a soda can at him, and in Custody Battle he hits Boomer when he says something).
  • Brick and Butch seem to have a decent relationship with each other, as Brick has never been in a fight with Butch. This could be, however, because Butch only agrees with Brick and loves to do the same things his brother does.
  • Even though he and Butch constantly pick on Boomer, they've been shown to at least care about their brother.
  • In most group photos he is almost always in the middle.
  • He does the most talking out of all of the Rowdyruff Boys.
  • He refers to the Powerpuff Girls as "babe" in The Boys Are Back in Town.
  • It's unclear how smart Brick really is compared to Blossom. He's either smarter than he lets on, but hides it to be cool, or he excels in street smarts more so than book smarts.
  • He has demonstrated a clear understanding of street tactics and gang warfare such as coordinated attacks, playing dirty, and setting up traps.
  • He manages to stay on task the most while attacking the girls.
  • In Bubble Boy, he clearly had suspected that Bubbles was Boomer. One could speculate that he allowed Bubbles to lead him and Butch to her house to see if she really was Boomer.
  • He also displays moments of stupidity, such as thinking dumb is spelled "dum" in Bubble Boy, hijacking Princess' jet to shoot at his brothers for fun, laughing at Butch after he bit his tongue as a result of Buttercup punching him, which allowed the girls to find a way to beat him and his brothers in The Boys Are Back in Town.
  • Though it is not clear if this is a unique ability to him, Brick is the only one shown using laser-beams. In The Boys Are Back In Town, his is a notably lighter shade of red compared to the girls. This implies that it is maybe more powerful than his brothers' laser-beams, assuming they have that ability.
  • His color may have inspired his name, as bricks are commonly depicted as red, or he may be the color "brick red".
  • In the Latin, American, and Spanish versions of The Powerpuff Girls, Brick's was voiced by Marina Huerta in the Season 5 and Season 6 episodes, the Spanish dub actress for Bart Simpson from The Simpsons.
