Nekhbet is a Rare Game enemy found in the Sand-swept Naze area in the Dalmasca Estersand in Final Fantasy XII. It resembles a regular Cockatrice, but it is unwise to attack it early on, as it is a lot tougher.
At least one Cockatrice must be killed for Nekhbet to spawn (20% chance). It may spawn in one of three locations in the Sand-swept Naze: the westernmost point, the central area, or the eastern area close to the Murmuring Defile section on the world map.

Nekhbet was an early, pre-dynastic, local goddess who was the patron of the city of Nekheb, her name meaning "of Nekheb". She was seen as a goddess who had chosen to adopt the city, and consequently depicted as a vulture, a creature that the Egyptians thought only existed as females, having to adopt children. The priestesses of Nekhbet were called muu (mothers), and wore robes of vulture feathers.In Egyptian mythology,
