Four games per cry? Who's willing to bet that XIII will have a completely different cry? That would be hilarious! TheMasterFighter 20:10, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

So let me get this straight... Edit

In this whole article, there is not one mention of how ridiculously cute chocobos are? I mean, I know that it can easily be said that they're so cute it doesn't actually need to be stated, but still... YellowMage 12:09, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

That's something to do with wiki's in general, it's almost impossible to find a reliable source for a chocobo's "cuteness". (I personally don't think there cute but...) Malboro 03:33, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Being a wiki, it has to hold a certain degree of neutrality. While Chocobos (in some installments) are cute, it's really not something you'd put in a page. However, your userpage's fine. --Auron Kaizer 08:25, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Chocobo TalesEdit


attack of the chocobos Edit

Seriously, they can hurt. Especially choco-meteor. Why no mention of these special attacks (kick, comet, meteor etc)?


Chocobo seriesEdit

Mmm, chocolate bird. Edit

What's the proper way to pronounce Chocobo? I've always said it like "Chalk-a-bo", but I can't shake the feeling it's something else and I'm being ignorant for saying it that way. Dorsha 20:46, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Through it being originally pronounced by my brother/s like that. Choek-kah-boe sounds stupid to me.  ILHI 16:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I always pronounced it Choke-o-boKaospyri 22:30, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Late topic but I pronounce it as Choh-Koh-Boh, or in Filipino, Tso-ko-boh DB36

Chocobos cant even fly!

Actually, in Final Fantasy IX, gold Chocobos can fly.

As Monsters Edit

Personally, I think its own page at "Chocobo (Enemy)", appearing as a "main" under a new section below musical themes. Although this page does cover it; it just seems this page is too long to even extract the information and for it to be easy to tell it has so many appearances.  ILHI 09:07, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

--Kaospyri 21:16, 14 March 2009 (UTC) style="color:red;">It clearly says there avian's which means they fly avian is a bird of flight unlike the ground running chocobos</span> =>

WTF i didn't say that!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?Kaospyri 22:32, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

The wiki doesn't work to a deadline. The wiki can create pages whenever a user wants.  ILHI 17:55, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

"Kweh"? Edit


Gender Edit

You can ride female Chocobos on FFVII no problem. Maybe its because Koko was pregnant or something? I haven't played FFV --Sencilia 09:27, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Cleaning the Choco-pen Edit

Griever Emblem
Object becuz that method sucks. Why should spinoffs be separate from the game it's spun from anyway? Srsly? That makes no sense whatsoever. Also it's not what we're supposed to do.  ILHI 15:36, December 6, 2009 (UTC)


A contribution to cleaning up this massive article is to split this page into Chocobo and Chocobo (Summon) as done in Moogle. - Henryacores^ 00:51, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

How can you vouch for merging all appearances and references of Shiva into a single page, but not for Chocobo? It works on a similar basis... or maybe not, meh.
Besides, I can't see how it's going to cleanup anything IMO. 17:46, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
One thing has absolutely no relation to the other. First, Shiva and Ifrit were disambigs; Second, they had links to minor appearances and boss appearances in where games they are summonable (links also present in the summon pages); Third, the disambig's links were to content derived from the summon appearance.
Chocobo as a summon is, at first hand, a different concept than the Chocobo as a vehicle. This page is gigantic, like Moogle's. Thus, splitting the page in these two approaches to its content is a good way to make it clearer.
We don't cover boss appearances inside Shiva and Ifrit, and if we do it's a small coverage, because they are normally aquired as summons after such encounters.
So, in a nutshell, Shiva, Ifrit, Bahamut, Leviathan and Odin, are more prominent as Summons and everything else is background in relation to their summon appearances, thus why their summon info is covered at their parent. Chocobo does not share this situation. It is a vehicle\mascot which appears as a summon in a select number of games.
So yeah, it should be split like "Moogle (Summon)" and "Gilgamesh (Summon)". - Henryacores^ 21:20, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
Well, the "Chocobo" article isn't for the vehicle, it's for EVERYTHING Chocobo. Just like Shiva is for EVERYTHING Shiva, it just happens that Shiva is most-often a summon.
TBH, as long as each summon appearance as at least mentioned on the corresponding section on the Chocobo article, then there isn't really a problem of splitting relevant information into a child article. 21:59, June 9, 2011 (UTC)


I always assumed that the article structure had been here for a long time. I recall some pages using weird structures (like List of antagonists) and I assumed they were just never changed. But then I discovered that it was something that Netherith changed for some reason.

This article structure is not how we format articles and should be changed, right? 14:14, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. There are a lot of appearances though. Maybe Netherith wanted to make the page seem less cluttered? Regardless, this page will look clutter either way. It's starting to look a bit like a disaster zone. ScatheMote 15:37, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

How about the spin-off section. Are sequels supposed top be in it? sΓΣamyGoreng 04:44, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Rogue Galaxy appearances Edit

Okay, there are references of Chocobo in a PS2 game Rogue Galaxy. There are Chocobo-like creatures in that game. And when you interacting to them, several of them even shouts "kweh". So, should we put it in the article? 22:52, April 19, 2012 (UTC)

Game Order Edit

It looks pretty ordered to me. Unless you're wanting the various sections- Compilation, etc, to be removed and all the appearances merged into one section, I'm not sure what you're asking when you want the games ordered. I checked the MoS and it seems to match up, though I could have missed one or two. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 09:54, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

There's only supposed to be one "Appearances" section for all games within our scope. While it is technically in-order for each sub-section, these sub-sections are not supposed to exist. 11:27, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, okay. I'll sort that out soon. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 11:30, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Lunar 2Edit

If it's just a small reference, and not an appearance shouldn't it be in the trivia?Tetraninja321 19:43, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Has there ever been a game with zombie chocobos? Edit

If not there should be. They could call it the Warking Dead. 01:56, August 30, 2013 (UTC)

...Ahahaha! XD Maybe in a horror spoof of Final Fantasy. JuriSuzukiDissicon ff13 Lig1 14:00, August 30, 2013 (UTC)

Is this appropriate Chocobo trivia? Edit

While playing an IOS game called Draw Something (it's kinda like online pictionary) I cam across Chocobos in one of the option panels (under video games). I took a picture in case it is needed as evidence. Does that count as trivia? TMG- Why? (talk) 07:56, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

If it hasn't been legally allowed by Square Enix then it should be in Final Fantasy in popular culture article instead. Monterossa (talk) 08:49, April 15, 2014 (UTC)
I guess it would go under "Non-Final Fantasy Appearances", but are these draw somethings user-generated though?Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 21:37, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

Kweh Audio SampleEdit

I think it would be an interesting idea to have a kweh audio sample section that covers all the game's chocobo sounds or something within this article. Games that have a kwek sound; FFVI, FFIX, and FFXIII have chocobo making a sound. There's propably more games that chocobos make a sound, but those three are the only ones that comes to mind right now. While on the same subject, I'm pretty sure moogles and cactuars make sounds too. Those could be put in their respective articles. Fenrir9 (talk) 16:41, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
