Overlord Rico is the king of the Underworld. His son, Rico Jr., is prince of the Underworld. Overlord Rico only appears in Story Mode. You will be unable to enter the Underworld to challenge him if you have not freed any towns because you will be unable to get a passport.
In Story Mode, he will appear twice. During his first appearance in the Overworld, within the Tower of Rabble, he is unable to use his full strength against the Adventurer. He then retreats back into the Underworld through the Gates of Heck to regain use of all of his power. The adventurer must first obtain a passport (gives the Gates of Heck 1/4 of your Towns except for Castles) to enter the Gates of Heck, then fight his or her Clonus, defeat the Demon's Guard, and finally confront Overlord Rico.
He has a normal form and a true form, and his moveset is different between his normal form and true form.
He doesn't often use strike. He has auto-counter (much like most Bosses), so striking him is a death wish.
