The Neochu, also known as the Naocho in the Nintendo Entertainment System translation, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. The Neochu appears as a palette swap of the normal Ochu enemy, having higher stats than its cousin; it is one of the strongest monsters appearing on the rivers of the Overworld.

Battle Edit

Like many of their equivalents in later games, the Neochu's attacks tend to cause negative status effects; in this game, they inflict Poison. Given its higher stats, it is harder to defeat, although some Thunder-based spells and heavy physical attacking should do the trick.

Etymology Edit

Neo is a prefix from the ancient Greek word for "new" or "young".

"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.
