A high level sorceress. She controls her opponents at will with Love Token.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

Coco, also known as Barb-e, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. In the original North American SNES release Coco's sprite was censored by removing the smoke coming from her cigarette. The same was done to her palette swaps. The smoke was restored in later releases.



Coco casts Imp and Drain often, and she can also use the dangerous Overture, which forces all physical attacks targeted at her to be absorbed by the target of Overture (similar to Cover). Coco also uses Slap, which silences the target.


The quickest way to defeat her is to cast Rasp as Coco dies when her MP is depleted. Since she only has 198 MP, a single Rasp should do the job.

Coco is a mythical ghost-monster, equivalent to the bogeyman, found in many Hispanic and Lusophone countries. He can also be considered a Hispanic version of a bugbear, as it is a commonly used figure of speech representing an irrational or exaggerated fear.

Barb-e is a reference to Barbie, a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959.
