Appearances[edit | edit source]
ChocoMeteor is used by Boko when he is summoned into battle using Gysahl Greens, and is his second-most powerful attack. In the original version Boko learns ChocoMeteor by training in the Chocobo World, meaning most international players never got to see the attack in the PlayStation version. In Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, Chocobo World is not available, and Boko can use his special skills natively, and which attack he uses depends on Squall's level. Boko uses ChocoMeteor between LV50–74.
Its damage is calculated as follows:
Choco-Meteo is used by chocobos when encountered as opponents. It consists of twelve non-elemental attacks that reduce a random party member's HP by 12.5% with each hit, although by chaining the hits may deal additional damage. This attack is used by bold chocobos—timid and normal chocobos will never use it.
Summons a meteor from the heavens to wreak havoc on all other chocobos.
Choco Meteor is an item usable during chocobo races.
During the quests leading up to the second Ivalice Alliance Raid, the Hero of Light must save a moogle named Montblanc from a pair of hostile red chocobos in Yanxia. They will occasionally cast Choco Meteor, which deals heavy damage and leaves those hit with a vulnerability debuff.
Choco Meteor can be learned by Blue Mages. The attack deals unaspected damage with 200 potency to the targeted enemy, with any other enemies near the target also taking damage at 50% of the usual potency. If the player's companion chocobo is currently summoned, the attack's potency is increased to 300.
Choco Meteor is used by Red Chocobos and does high damage to a single target. It targets a single square within five squares of the user. The Choco Meteor's meteorite is in the shape of a chocobo's head.
Choco Meteor is exclusive to Red Chocobos, and does magick damage to all target within the area of effect.
The Chocobo Knight can use this ability while in control of a Red Chocobo.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
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!
meteor or "shooting star" is the visible streak of light from a meteoroid or micrometeoroid, heated and glowing from entering the Earth's atmosphere, as it sheds glowing material in its wake. Meteors rarely explode in the Earth's atmosphere. The term has become associated with quickness with the adjective "meteoric". In the context of myth and superstition, meteors and comets sighted in Ancient and Medieval Europe were once held as ill omen, said to be the message of the heavens' displeasure of man's affairs to herald grave catastrophes.A
Pieces that withstand atmospheric ablation are known as meteorites, but the name of the spell in the series refers to the overall phenomenon.
This means that the use of the word "meteor" in spell names in Final Fantasy is incorrect, as parts that withstand the atmospheric entry are called meteorites.
