- "He's a chocobo, not a monster. He's called Bobby Corwen."
- —Black Mage No. 33
Bobby Corwen is a chocobo in Final Fantasy IX. His egg is found by two black mages, Black Mage No. 33 and Black Mage No. 111, who take him back to their home in the Black Mage Village and watch over the egg. They even stop Quina as s/he tries to eat the egg when the party first visits the village. When it hatches, they raise him with love and affection. The black mages do not join the others with Kuja, because they are too busy looking after the egg. The egg hatches while the village is empty, all except for the player party, the two black mages and Black Mage No. 288.
Upon its hatching, the two black mages experience an overwhelming happiness and appear to be crying with joy over his birth. Vivi also feels this, and from this reason, he believes that he and his fellow black mages cannot be puppets since they can experience such joy.
The mages often refer to the chocobo by his full name, much to the annoyance of Eiko. One of the Genomes believes Bobby to be a monster as he is unaccustomed to life on Gaia but later grows attached to the chocobo.
The first two letters of both his first and last names spell "Boco," a recurring chocobo name in the series.
