Rico is one of the penguins in The Penguins of Madagascar, Madagascar, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted and the tritagonist of the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar movie.
It is revealed that Rico has little tolerance for "mushy" stuff, and often becomes sick when Private gets overly emotional and "lovey-dovey" about something. On the other hand he seems to be the second most emotional penguin next to Private and is deeply in love with a doll called Ms. Perky. Another characteristic of Rico is that he might be incredibly superstitious. He also loves fish since of eating herring which had bactarian fomoly.
- Throughout the Madagascar franchise, Rico rarely speaks.
