Ever since 1988’s Final Fantasy II on the Nintendo Entertainment System, chocobos have been faithful steeds to rival the very noblest of horses. They have been beloved pets with charming names like 'Boko'. Such was their popularity that Square Enix made a chocobo called Chocobo and stuck him in kart racing games, minigame compilations and spinoff roguelikes."
