The Chocobo Farm is a location in Final Fantasy VII and Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, mentioned in Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. It is home to a family of chocobo breeders, who raise chocobos for the chocobo racing.


Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[]

Zack Fair visited the Chocobo Farm for a number of missions.

Final Fantasy VII[]

Cloud Strife and the party visited the Chocobo Farm during "Going After Sephiroth". In need of a way to reach the Mythril Mine, the group turned to the farm to ride a chocobo to get past the dangerous Midgar Zolom. After buying a Chocobo Lure Materia from Choco Billy, they caught one to cross the marsh more easily.

Cloud and the party later returned to catch and breed chocobos. This allowed them to breed more powerful chocobos and reach some impassable parts of the world, and to compete in chocobo races in the Chocobo Square.

Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-[]

A crew member on the Shera kept a river chocobo at the farm, having named it "Boco".


The Chocobo Farm is located in the northeast area of the eastern continent. It is situated in the middle of grassland with an abundance of chocobos roaming the land nearby. The farm itself is relatively small, with a single ranch, an outside pen, and a house for the owner.


Final Fantasy VII[]

The Chocobo Farm can be visited on the world map after leaving Midgar, but does not become important until the chapter "Going After Sephiroth". Here, the player must visit the Chocobo Farm to purchase the Chocobo Lure Materia from Choco Billy for 2,000 gil and catch a wild Chocobo, in order to evade the Midgar Zolom and reach Mythril Mine. Though it is possible to defeat Midgar Zolom instead, doing so is extremely unlikely at this point in the game.

Racing Chocobos are later bred here after the events of "That Which Waits in the Northernmost Reaches" when Meteor is summoned, with Choco Billy looking after them in the stables. Breeding allows the player to have access to better Chocobos that can reach impassable parts of the map and reach the Materia Caves around the map. The Summon Materia Choco/Mog can also be obtained here. Finally, Chole, Choco Billy's sister, assists Cloud by keeping notes of what the Chocobo Sage divulges.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-[]

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!
