The Purple Chocobo is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It can be dangerous if not handled carefully.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Purple Chocobo begins by casting Veil, Protect, Shell, and Vigilance on itself. It will then alternate between using Entrench and an enfeebling or cure ability. While it uses Entrench, the party will not be able to deal much damage to it. If the battle takes too long, it will flee by using Choco Dash.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to set up a defensive paradigm and have a Sentinel provoke the chocobo and guard against the ensuing attack, which can knock a party member into the air and deal heavy damage. The party should then switch to an offensive paradigm and attack while the chocobo's guard is down.

A good tip is to pay attention to the chocobo's movements in battle, as right before they flee they will turn around and shake their rear. As soon as the player spots this they can press Start and redo the battle, as it is often faster than waiting for another one to spawn.

Paradigm Pack[edit | edit source]

The Purple Chocobo is a Synergist. Its skillset focuses on augmenting the party's offense, complementing Noel's and Serah's more defensive Synergist skillset. As with most chocobos, its stat development is slow at first, and accelerates once it reaches the fifth stage of its development.

At level 99, the Purple Chocobo's stats are among the highest for a Synergist, particularly its HP. Only the Yakshini has higher HP for Synergists.

The Purple Chocobo is one of the key ingredients if the player wishes to cultivate a Paradigm Pack containing only chocobos.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name "chocobo" derives from a Japanese brand of chocolate malt ball by Morinaga, ChocoBall (チョコボール, Chokobōru?). The mascot for this product is Kyoro-chan (キョロちゃん?), a bird who says "kweh."

食う / くう / kuu is a rough way to say "eat", whose volitional casual form is 食え / くえ / kue ("let's scoff 'em down!"), leading to Kweh!
