Like his three palette swap counterparts, it always attacks the party alone. Unlike his fellow "riders", however, Death Rider does not have a lance attack; Hell's Rider has Silver Lance, Test Rider has Golden Lance, and Dante has Crystal Lance.
The Death Rider may use Pox, Death, or Blaster on his first turn. He can user Metal Cutter, Poltergeist, or Freezing Dust on his second turn, and then Hyperdrive on his third turn. Death Rider will counter all damage with two Pox attacks; though not overwhelmingly powerful, the constant double-retaliation strikes do add up quickly.
1st Turn: Pox (33%) or Death (33%) or Blaster (33%)
2nd Turn: Metal Cutter (33%) or Poltergeist (33%) or Freezing Dust (33%)
3rd Turn: Hyperdrive (100%)
If attacked by anything: Pox (100%)
