VII

Ho-chu is an enemy from Final Fantasy VII. It can only be fought in the last round of the normal battle or in round two of the special battle in Gold Saucer's Battle Square. It was originally planned to be encountered in the Ancient Forest, but was left out of the final game. If one were to access the ordinary battle, the player would not be able to escape, implying it was intended to be a boss or otherwise special fight.

BattleEdit

The Ho-chu can use two strong physical attacks and has high HP. His Whip Sting attack always inflicts paralysis, while his Big Pollen attack may inflict sleep on one character.

Rare Circlets can be stolen from it, and Ho-chu is the only enemy besides Master Tonberry that can be morphed into a Ribbon.

EtymologyEdit

"Ochu" comes from Dungeons & Dragons; specifically, it is the otyugh. The name in Japanese (and transliterations) comes from the pronunciation; it is pronounced with a short O and T (practically to a ch), making the pronunciation close to "o-chuugh". "オチュー" is the closest the katakana system can get to representing the sound without using compound katakana pronunciations not natively found in Japanese.

TriviaEdit

  • Ho-chu and Tonberry are the only enemies found exclusively in the Battle Square.
