Final Fantasy Wiki

The Chocobo Forest is one of several locations in Final Fantasy IV. Each Chocobo Forest contains three yellow chocobos, used for transportation on land and crossing rivers, and a single white chocobo, which restores 500 MP to all party members when caught. The Fat Chocobo can also be summoned in the forest, but requires a Gysahl Green for it to appear.

Final Fantasy IV[]

Chocobo Forests[]

There are five Chocobo Forests in total on the overworld, and all Chocobo Forests are found on the tile where Cecil is standing in the pictures below. A Gysahl Green can be found in the grassy area in the middle of the clearing.

Chocobo Village[]

There is a Chocobo Village north of Troia. This is initially the only forest where the player can find black chocobos. However, once the player enters the Lunar Whale for the first time, an additional black chocobo spawns in the chocobo forest located southwest of Baron and Baron Castle. The player can find three Gysahl Greens if they venture through the hidden pathways in the trees. The clearing itself is shaped like a chocobo.

Eidolon search sidequest[]

In the now-defunct Steam and mobile versions of Final Fantasy IV, the player can embark on a quest to find eidolons scattered around the world. The last eidolon is found in Troia's Chocobo Forest, near a white chocobo, and he has been flying on the black chocobo.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-[]

The Chocobo Forests were disabled for this game as they are not needed, and the only Chocobo Forest the player can see on the overworld map is the one east of Fabul. The entrance into the forest was removed and it became a regular forest.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[]

The Chocobo Forests in The After Years are the same as they were in Final Fantasy IV.

Musical themes[]

The music in chocobo forests is "Chocobo Forest". Even though this song appears in every version of the game, the track only appears on the 3D version's original soundtrack.



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!
