Chubby Chocobo is a recurring character in the Chocobo series.
Chubby Chocobo is the resident of Gingerbread Land. He races in the Phat-Burner Plus, a tricycle of sorts. A greedy chocobo with a voracious appetite, he eats everything, including a Blue Crystal. When Chocobo found out, he invites Chubby to follow them.
Chubby uses the ability "Receive", which when activated, will absorb the effects of a magical stone and turn them into one for his disposal.
Chubby Chocobo resides in various floors of both of the first two dungeons, disguised as a white mage, and offering help and tutorials on various floors. He also runs a shop in the town, but Poulet doesn't realize they're the same person until the end of the game, where he assists him during the final battle.
Chubby Chocobo appears as an NPC in an early dungeon helping Shiroma. He later returns to the village and sells Chocobo items. His shop also contains shortcuts through the dungeons.
Chubby Chocobo (Known as Debu Chocobo) is the Shop Keeper of the game. He shells the Magic Stones. He wears a classic summoner costume.
Chubby fled from the war-torn countryside with his older brother Peekaboo. But the two were separated with Chubby being taken in by Shirma along with Chocobo, while his brother came to serve Irma. During the game, Chubby is the first to be rescued from his chocobo card when Bebuzzu spits him out.
Shortly thereafter, he is able to reopen the gates to Mt. Magma after eating a meaty meal. Before returning to the farm, he gives Chocobo the magical magnifying glass that reveals the requirements for unlocking secrets within the magical picture books. He spends the rest of the game at the farmhouse, offering support and thinking about food.
Non-Final Fantasy AppearancesEdit
The name "chocobo" derives from a Japanese brand of chocolate malt ball by Morinaga, ChocoBall (チョコボール or Chokobōru). The mascot for this product is Kyoro-chan (キョロちゃん), a bird who says "kweh."
