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.


Rico has spiky hair, a scar on his beak, a white belly, and a orange beak.
