The Black Chocobo is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It always appears alone. It randomly appears alongside monsters in Vile Peaks -010 AF-. If the battle takes too long, it will flee by using Choco Dash.

A good tip is to pay attention to the chocobo's movements in battle, as right before they flee they will turn around and shake their rear. As soon as the player spots this they can press Start and redo the battle, as it is often faster than waiting for another one to spawn.


Paradigm Pack[]

The Black Chocobo is a Saboteur. It maintains decent stats, but the skillset contain spells identical with that of the player's, although it learns some II-varieties and Endless Nightmare, along resistance to Pain. It also has an otherwise moderate stat pool at the end of its development, along with a decent casting speed, making the Black Chocobo an overall acceptable Saboteur end- and post-game.

The name "chocobo" derives from a Japanese brand of chocolate malt ball by Morinaga, ChocoBall (チョコボール, Chokobōru?). The mascot for this product is Kyoro-chan (キョロちゃん?), a bird who says "kweh".

食う / くう / kuu is a rough way to say "eat", whose volitional casual form is 食え / くえ / kue ("let's scoff 'em down!"), leading to Kweh!
