Final Fantasy Wiki

Brown Chocobo is an avion/chocobo-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in two locations: The Yoma in the Dalmasca Estersand, and the Corridor of Ages in the Salikawood. Brown Chocobo will not attack unless provoked. It is also fought alongside Trickster and the other enemy chocobos in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode in Stage 58.

It is called "Red Chocobo" in the BradyGames guide for the PlayStation 2 version. It has the same stats as the Green Chocobo in the Salikawood, but different item spoils and the green variant is aggressive. The Antares of the Salikawood can cannibalize chocobos to grow stronger.

The method is simple: ply your chocobo chick with only fresh gysahl greens, and that disconcertingly disgusting stench will diminish by up to three quarters! The news isn't all good, however, as it takes two to three years to raise a chocobo to riding age, meaning that the fragrant fruits of your labor won't ripen for some time.


Dalmasca Estersand




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!
