Attacks with Lash and Quake, so watch your status.Bestiary entry (PS)
The Litwor Chicken, also known as Chickenlip, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.
Litwor Chickens are difficult to defeat and they attack in large groups. When left alone, or when Confused, they have a chance to cast Quake, which will decimate the party. If a character learned Float from Cait Sith and casts it, Quake will do nothing but hurt the caster and their allies. Otherwise, confusing the Litwor Chicken is not advised, and they should be taken out in a group. Sabin's Rising Phoenix, Edgar's Tools, Celes's Blizzard, or any other group attacks work well.

Other appearances Edit
The artwork for the enemy reads ヘビニワトリ (hebiniwatori?), which are the Japanese words for snake (ヘビ, 蛇, hebi?) and chicken (ニワトリ, 鶏, niwatori?) concatenated together. Above it is the text ルネンタ (runenta?) which is the name of the Tunneller from Final Fantasy V, whose name is likely formed by reversing a transliteration of "tunnel".
Simiarly, this enemy's in-game name features words reversed and scrambled: リト (rito?) is トリ (tori?, lit. bird) backwards, and ビッヘ (bihhe?) is a slightly modified ヘビ (hebi?, lit. snake) backwards. (ワール, wāru?) might derive from (割る, waru?) meaning to split or divide referencing the creature's composition.
In the English localization, Litwor is a meaningless reverse translation of リトワール (ritowāru?).
