Cockatrice ff1

Cockatrice (コカトリス, Kokatorisu?), also called Cocatris, is a recurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series. Cockatrices are typically birds, though they have appeared in other forms.

Cockatrices often possess the ability to Petrify the player characters, making them a potential danger at lower levels. Cockatrices are sometimes attuned to the Lightning element. The Cockatrice has appeared since the original Final Fantasy.

AppearancesEdit

Final FantasyEdit

Cockatrice-ff1-psp

Its appearance in the original Final Fantasy marks the start of the enemy's recurring appearance throughout the Final Fantasy series.


Final Fantasy IIEdit

Cockatrice-FF2-PSP

The Cockatrice is a Rank 5 monster that can be found around Mysidia and inside the Cave of Mysidia. Its normal attack can petrify foes.


Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Cockatrice

The Cockatrice is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It is fought in the Cave of Tides. A good way of defeating it is to open the fight with the Geomancer ability Whirlpool. Another easy way to weaken or neutralize this creature is to cast Blind, as its attacks will frequently inflict the Petrify status.

In Final Fantasy III, Cockatrices are lizards instead of birds.


Final Fantasy IVEdit

FF4PSP Cockatrice

The Cockatrice is a rather weak enemy, but may inflict the Petrify status with its physical attacks.

Petrifying Beak (PSP)

The Cockatrice also appears as a summon monster or Eidolon which can be obtained by the Cockatrice enemy, which has a small chance of dropping an item that teaches Rydia this summon. When summoned into battle, the Cockatrice is a 100% accurate instant death attack to a single foe that is not immune to the Petrify status. It has a casting time of 2 and costs 15 MP to summon.

In the original SNES English release, the Cockatrice summon was dummied out of the game for reasons unknown. Its name, like many other dummied out items within the game, was Dummy in both the item learned from and the summon spell. In the DS version, Cockatrice deals earth damage to enemies that are immune to Stone. In Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, the Cockatrice summon functions the same as in the original version of Final Fantasy IV.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Cockatrice returns as a Summon spell for imposter Rydia in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV. It attempts to inflict Petrify on one enemy and deals non-elemental damage at the cost of 15 MP.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Cockatrice is not a very powerful enemy, but can inflict Petrify if not dealt with quickly. It and its palette-swap, Helldiver, both drop the item Cockatrice, which, again, can be given to Rydia to obtain the Cockatrice summon.
