White Chocobo is an avion/chocobo-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found on the Hakawea Shore of the Phon Coast. It is elusive and tricky to locate. However, as all chocobos share a bestiary entry, the player does not need to spawn the white variant for Sky Pirate's Den completion.

What creature, fair or foul, has affected the lives of the common man more than the noble chocobo? Though the yellow chocobo is by far the most common, and the only domesticable sort, many other wild breeds of differing hues have been identified. In general, the other colorations of chocobo tend to be quite violent, giving rise to the saying: "Yellow, best for riding; aught else, best be hiding.
Even as tame chocobos are known for their temper, true domestication requires time and expertise. Their curiosity can often get them into trouble, but they are charming nevertheless, and popular throughout Ivalice. As famed naturalist Merlose once wrote: "a little personality goeth a long way.

Hear ye, hear ye! Good news for those knights who are sensitive of nose! Thanks to recent discovers, you can bid a fond farewell to troublesome chocobo odors! The method is simple: ply your chocobo chick with only fresh gysahl greens, and that disconcertingly disgusting stench will diminish by up to three quarters! The news isn't all good, however, as it takes two to three years to raise a chocobo to riding age, meaning that the fragrant fruits of your labor won't ripen for some time.

How to find[edit | edit source]

White Chocobo does not appear easily. To spawn this breed, the player must go to Hakawea Shore and ride the Wayward Chocobo towards the Pora-Pora Sands. From there, a bangaa Game Hunter will reveal a hidden path that leads to the Caima Hills. The player must go through the path, then return to Pora-Pora Sands and all the way to Hakawea Shore. The White Chocobo will await right where the Wayward Chocobo was.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Near the beginning of the game, the Imperials are bringing in a white chocobo for the consul's parade. It ends up trampling Vaan's Galbana Lilies, which infuriates him. If the player does the July quest, they can learn that Gibbs's family raises prize chocobos for parade use.

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!
