Red chocobo (赤チョコボ, Akachokobo?) is a recurring type of chocobo. It is usually the most physically powerful type in games where it participates in battle, often possessing the devastating Choco Meteor.
An occasional feature of some red chocobos is to be at level 99. This is a reference to an infamous storyline battle in Final Fantasy Tactics featuring level scaling, where parties with a max level character may face one or more level 99 red chocobos.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Choco becomes a red chocobo from the Dawn Lagoon Chocograph. Referred to as the Mountain Chocobo, he can cross hills and mountains. He later further upgrades into the navy blue Sea Chocobo. Red chocobos appear as NPCs in Chocobo's Paradise.
Adventurers can breed and raise red chocobos for use as personal mounts. The chocobo's color is merely a cosmetic difference and Red Chocobo Dye may be used to cause a player's chocobo to appear to be red regardless of its actual color.
According to lore, a breed of chocobo known as the Courser will on rare occasion be born with a red coloration instead of the usual yellow. These larger-than-average chocobos were originally bred in the Kingdom of San d'Oria for scouting purposes.
The Lv.99 Red Chocobo is the rarest and one of the most powerful enemies. To spawn it, the player must kill six chocobos in the Haulo Green area of the Ozmone Plain, then zone away two areas and return. There is a 1 in 256 chance that the Lv.99 Red Chocobo will be among the respawned normal chocobos. It continuously uses Choco Comet to do heavy damage to the party.
A similar-looking chocobo, the rambunctious chocobo, may be found in various locations and time periods while traveling through the Historia Crux. Its body is covered in red feathers with green and blue plumage on its wings and tail. Its theme, "Crazy Chocobo", plays when it is ridden.
The player can dye their chocobo mount varying shades of red if fed the correct food at a stable.
Red chocobos have become infamous for wiping entire raid groups. This may be a throwback to the Finnath Creek story battle in Final Fantasy Tactics, Redhawk from Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, and the Lv.99 Red Chocobo from Final Fantasy XII.
The red chocobo is a type of chocobo possessing high stats and the Choco Meteor attack to deal heavy damage. If tamed, it can be ridden by player characters. Many red chocobo appearing in a flock is considered one of the toughest battles.
Red chocobos are mentioned, although not seen, as the Gotor Sands area is "famous for its mirages and red chocobos."
The red-plumed chocobo rains destruction from the skies with its choco meteor.
Red chocobo is one of the six types of chocobo, and the only one able to use Choco Meteor.
The Red Chocobo is an enemy in the Final Fantasy Tactics exchange events The Auracite Chosen and In the Name of Love. It is a bonus monster that occasionally appears in the ADV, PRO and ELT stages. It either drops 500 Red Orbs or 1,000 White Orbs.
