Ricky Beamer is the main protagonist of the fiftieth book, Calling All Creeps!.
He wanted revenge on Tasha McClain, by putting her number in an add saying, "If you're a real creep, call Tasha." She finds out, and switches the number to his own number, then he gets calls from people who say they're Creeps. The Creeps ended up being the four school bullies David, Jarred, Brenda, and Wart, and Ricky became their commander. Ricky had a plan to go with it, to stop them. At the end, The Creeps make identity seed cookies and they serve it to the students. Ricky was about to stop them, but they kept making fun of him. In retaliation, Ricky let the kids eat the cookies because he was tired of them mistreating him. Once they became Creeps, Ricky would command them as he eats the same cookie.
Ricky is twelve years old, Caucasian, skinny, with short black hair, dark eyes and cheek full of freckles. He also wears glasses.
In the Goosebumps film , he is in his Creep form. Like all the Creeps, he has purple skin with some yellow parts, green eyes, six fingers, long sharp teeth and pink tongue. He wears a gray hoodie, a T-shirt with tiger patterns, jeans and sneakers. In the movie, he doesn't need glasses anymore.
PersonalityFor a lot of his life, Ricky had to put up with a whole load of sadistic teasing in school, such as being called "Ricky Rat" and "Sicky Ricky". He never had any friends because most of them viewed him as a nerd. Ricky has often been angry and bitter about the kids constantly picking on him and he couldn't really understand why they always picked on him and there are possible moments when Ricky would really lose it and would be driven to have revenge. The person that Ricky has the worst relationship with is Tasha, as she looks down on him because he is a sixth grader and she would always scream at him if Ricky made a mistake. He also had the worst relationship with Brenda, David, Jared and Wart as they had picked on him also, up until they had found out Ricky was their "commander". The only person that Ricky is good friends with is Iris as she is the only person that was able to see what was inside Ricky. Ricky is a good person, though sometimes he can be pretty naive and clumsy and he is also very hardworking. It is unknown if Ricky still has this personality now that he has become a Creep.
