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.
Its debut in the original Final Fantasy marks the start of the enemy's recurring appearance throughout the Final Fantasy series.
The Cockatrice appears more in reptile form, a stronger recolor of the Basilisk 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.
The Cockatrice is a rather weak enemy, but may inflict the Petrify status with its physical attacks.
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. On the Easy Type version, the casting time was reduced to 1.
In the original SNES English release and Easy Type version, the Cockatrice summon was dummied out of the game. Its name on the SNES, like many other dummied out items within the game, was Dummy in both the item learned from and the summon spell. For the Easy Type version, it still retained its name and icon even though it can't be obtained. In the 3D 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.
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.
Cockatrices can be found on the North Mountain and are able to petrify enemies with normal attacks, but other than that, they are very rare and not much of a threat.
Cockatrice (Cokatrice in the SNES version) is an ability used by Mog during his Wind Rhapsody Dance. Cockatrice deals non-elemental magic damage and inflicts Petrify on one opponent. It has a spell power of 50 and its Hit Rate is 96. It fails on targets immune to Death.

It is more difficult to defeat than the Wolves and Cactites, which inhabit the same areas. In Giza Plains, there is a small cockatrice farm, with cockatrices in a variety of sizes. Although they are often fought as enemies, a lady in the pen mentions that cockatrices are tame and gentle creatures, and wonders if they are intelligent.
