Cockatrice is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. They are not very powerful, but can inflict Petrify if not dealt with quickly. One or two physical attacks is normally enough to take them down with little worry, or a single-target spell such as Fira or Bio. If not defeated by a magic attack, they will counterattack with a physical attack.
[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.
