Pulse fal'Cie and l'Cie are bad news. That's why Cocoon kicked them out. Live too close to the fal'Cie? One-way ticket to Pulse! That's the Purge in a nutshell.
- —Vanille, describing the Purge to Hope Estheim inside the Pulse Vestige
The Purge (パージ, Pāji?) is a form of forced migration and social cleansing in Final Fantasy XIII. It is conducted by the Sanctum, the fal'Cie-run government of Cocoon, to get rid of those believed to have been 'touched' by Gran Pulse.
After a Pulse fal'Cie was discovered within a Pulse Vestige in the town of Bodhum, everyone who was in Bodhum at the time were accused of being tainted by Pulse and the people of Cocoon cried out for their expulsion. The Sanctum's personal army, PSICOM, quarantined the town and rounded up the people, regardless of whether they were citizens or tourists. The deportees were forced to wear "Purge clothing" (restraint garments fitted with a metal device that binds their hands, controlled by a remote held by a PSICOM soldier), and loaded onto "Purge trains," while those who tried to resist or run were fired upon.

Card of the Fat Chocobo from Mobius Final Fantasy. The Fat Chocobo is a comically overweight Chocobo that has been a recurring character since Final Fantasy III and is usually either a Summon or item storage. (According to an NPC in Final Fantasy III, the bird stores items in its stomach.) In Mobius, the Fat Chocobo card can be summoned with two Normal Elements and casts Barrier, raising Defense for 8 turns. It also grants HP Up.
This Fat Chocobo is drawn somewhat differently than 3D models of Fat Chocobos, which typically show the Godsbird with a well-defined neck, lazily half-opened eyes, and straight talons. Because yellow Chocobo breeds cannot fly in most games, and Fat Chocobos appear less mobile than their leaner counterparts, one would expect Fat Chocobos to be flightless, but this one appears to be lifting off the ground.
