The Ochu is an enemy in Final Fantasy X encountered along the Moonflow's South Bank Road, at the left fork when the road splits with the Temple on the right fork.



Ochu's primary attack will cause Poison to one character while its Ochu Dance attack can inflict Darkness, Slow, Silence, and Confuse to the entire party.

Ochu will drop weapons with Poisontouch and Strength/Magic +5%. It will also drop armor with wards against many different status ailments.


Ochu's HP is high compared to the damage output an average party will be able to dish out at this point in the game, so battles against it may take several turns. Lulu's Fira is very helpful.



"Ochu" comes from Dungeons & Dragons; specifically, it is the otyugh. The name in Japanese (and transliterations) comes from the pronunciation; it is pronounced with a short O and T (practically to a ch), making the pronunciation close to "o-chuugh". "オチュー" is the closest the katakana system can get to representing the sound without using compound katakana pronunciations not natively found in Japanese.
