Behind the scenes[]

In Dissidia Final Fantasy, a moogle makes reference to the Chocobo series, declaring "I know it won't be long 'til we star in our own game, kupo! And not just a racing game or mysterious dungeon spinoff, either kupo!"


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!
