Final Fantasy Wiki

Chocobo Woods is one of several locations on the Floating Continent and the Surface World in Final Fantasy III where the player can get chocobos to ride on the world map. The Fat Chocobo can also be summoned inside these forests.

There are thirteen Chocobo Woods in total; three on the Floating Continent, and ten on the surface of the world. All Chocobo Woods are found on the tile where the Onion Knight is standing in the pictures below. There are three chocobos dwelling inside each forest, and the Fat Chocobo will appear in the northern area of the forest after being summoned by using a Carrot (or some Gysahl Greens in the 3d remakes) next to the grove (or big tree) in the middle of the clearing.

Musical themes[]

The musical theme in Chocobo Woods is "Chocobos!".



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!
