If you enable the story missions to get the rulers to appear you need to complete the mission 'into the nest'. After that all 3 will appear in other missions over time (and you encounter the Viper King in the mission). If you don't activate this dlc they will appear in your missions as one of the pods randomly. (not in story missions with fixed pods).

Don't panic if they run away on your first encounter, you will keep encountering the same ruler until it no longer runs away once you have done enough damage to them.

Bear in mind that you need to be extremely prepared for these in terms of playstyle they work quite differently. Whilst they are present on the field they get 1 move between every 1 of your soldiers moves so moving is not recommend if you can avoid it as the Ruler will get another chance to hurt your soliders in that time. This occurs irrespective of normal enemy turns. You can use this to your advantage. If you work out where one is on the map, you can set all but one of your soliders in overwatch and get the 5th one to trigger it to come into range and all your soldiers will take an overwatch shot but it will count as 1 action.

If you choose the Integrate DLC option the Rulers will not appear until they are guarding facilities (it will say something like a dangerous alien is guarding this facility) after that they will roam future missions. With this DLC they also receive a significant nerf undoubtedly making the achievement quite a bit easier.
