The Cockatrice is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII.



Electric Discharge.

Cockatrice 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 Quezacotl, and Coral Fragments, which teaches Quistis Electrocute, a Blue Magic spell.

Triple Triad[]


Cockatrice is the final Level 1 Monster Card in the Triple Triad card inventory. It can be used for playing the minigame, and for turning into Cockatrice Pinion with Quezacotl's Card Mod. Further refining the pinions into Breaks is the earliest the player can amass the spell.

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.
