The Cockatrice is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII.


Battle Edit

It uses Electric Discharge as a final attack, but is more known for petrifying attack, which makes it one of the few one-hit KO mobs for a solo character.

Cockatrice drops Dynamo Stones that raise compatibility with Quetzalcoatl, and Coral Fragments, which teaches Quistis Electrocute, a Blue Magic spell.

Etymology Edit

The Cockatrice is a creature from mythology. It is similar to the basilisk in appearance and ability, but also possesses flight. A cockatrice is born from an egg hatched by a rooster and incubated by a toad, and its gaze causes instant petrification.
