Rico is a character in the novel Final Destination: End of the Line. He is the leader of a Hispanic gang. While walking through the zoo with his gang, he and his cronies shoved Mary-Beth Bradbury out of their way, almost pushing her down. Peter stood up to the gang and shouted at them to watch where they were going, angering Rico. He spun around and placed his knife against Peter's cheek after he saw him back away in fear. Peter, knowing that he was about to die just so Rico could brag about killing him to his friends, and knowing that Mary-Beth would die too for being a witness, punched Rico in the stomach and began to run away with Mary-Beth. Rico and his gang chased Peter and Mary-Beth throughout the zoo, although they lost track of them when they hid inside the pitch-black insect house.
