Kupo! My precious Chocobos have all run off! Every last one of them! It looks like they've headed for the mountains in the Aldanna Range. I need someone to find them before the monsters do, kupo!

Quest Description for Popocho's Chocobos

Popocho is a moogle non-player character from Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. A Chocobo Knight with an unfortunate speech impediment that renders him unable to say the name of the very birds he rides, Popocho joins Luso as a guest for one battle in the Aldanna Range, and then grants him access to the Job class of Chocobo Knight afterward.


Save my bocochos!


Popocho lives in the world of Ivalice, and is a Chocobo Knight who owns six chocobos—one yellow, two green, one black, one white, and one brown. One day, all of his chocobos escaped from his house and ran off into the Aldanna Range, where they became lost and targeted by the resident Aldanna monsters. Frantic, Popocho put up a Quest Notice in the nearest bar, begging for someone to help him save his beloved chocobos. Luso Clemens saw this notice and came to the rescue.

Searching separately from Luso, Popocho managed to find three of his six chocobos on his own; unfortunately, they were being menaced by a massive Zahak. Although Popocho could never have defeated the beast himself, Luso Clemens arrived in the nick of time, having just retrieved the other three chocobos, and helped the Knight defend his chocobos. At the end of the battle, Popocho happily taught Luso how to use the Chocobo Knight Job class in his own clan before riding off with his chocobos.

An amusing trait of Popocho's that causes him to stand out amongst the other moogles of the game is his peculiar speech impediment. Although he ends many of his sentences with "kupo" in the traditional manner of moogles, he is also prone to mixing "kupo" and similar sounds into the word "chocobo". Although he occasionally manages to pronounce the word correctly, it usually emerges as "bococho", "kuchobo", "chupopo", or something else along those lines. Although he becomes quite flustered and attempts to correct his mispronunciations, he usually only ends up making worse ones, a gesture that his long-suffering chocobos are apparently quite used to.

He is also memorable for the exclamation he emits when at the height of exasperation, "Oh, feathers and foozles, kupo!".

Brown Rider Job Description

Popocho shares the typical statistics of a Chocobo Knight—primarily low stats, but ridiculously high Speed. His AI seems geared towards keeping his chocobos alive, which is helpful, because if they die, then you fail the entire Quest. He usually starts out by Choco Guarding his chocobos, and then moves on to Guard your party members as well.
