RiCO takes the appearance of a young female Reploid donning a mainly white and blue uniform-like armor, with yellow and orange details. While she looks quite proper and professional, with a necktie, headset and tablet giving her the appearance of a navigator, her young looks also give her a jovial and upbeat aspect. Matching the details of her armor, she has blue eyes and hair, the latter kept tied in a sidetail. She also sports in some occasions round glasses with a silver frame.
In contrast to the other navigators in the X series, who in general tend to present a more serious and straightforward demeanor (Pallette to a lesser extent), RiCO exudes a bubbly and cheerful behavior, excitedly encouraging the player during navigation.
Rico means “cute” in Spanish, denoting RiCO’s cute demeanor. It also means “home ruler” in German, denoting her position as the administrator of the Deep Log.
- The name RiCO shares the capitalization of the name of the game the character debuts in (Rockman X DiVE).
- RiCO has heavy similarities to the character NiCO from the Dead or Alive series. Both have blue hair brushed to the side and wear glasses, wear white clothing with blue trims and short-shorts with knee high leggings. Both have similar names going so far of having the same typing quirk on it (RiCO and NiCO). Both characters are associated with technology and science. The only notable difference is personality, as NiCO has a more cold and emotionless outlook to her, while RiCO is shown to have a very bubbly disposition.
