The Cockatrice, also known as the COCTRICE in the Nintendo Entertainment System version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. Its appearance in the original Final Fantasy marks the start of the enemy's recurring appearance in several of the Final Fantasy games. They appear in a floor in the Cavern of Earth and the Mirage Tower, but also appear as guardians in the Sunken Shrine and the Cavern of Ice.

Its attacks are not strong, but they use a special attack that causes Petrify on one character, usually requiring the party to return to Melmond to heal. It is advised to buy Gold Needles in Elfheim before going to the Cavern of Earth, because they attack in flocks of several flying enemies. The party can be caught off-guard, resulting in a battle against eight Cockatrices at once. Once defeated, they may drop Gold Needles in later versions, which the player can use to cure the Petrify status.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]The Cockatrice is a creature from mythology. It is similar to the basilisk in appearance and ability, but also possesses flight. A cockatrice is born from an egg hatched by a rooster and incubated by a toad, and its gaze causes instant petrification.
