Teioh is the Chocobo belonging to the jockey Joe. His stats depend on the player's chocobo, always being greater, and may surpass the maximum the player can get. Teioh's speed will always be the player's speed +10%, and his stamina will always be the player's stamina +25%. Teioh appears in the chocobo races at Gold Saucer when the player is racing with their own chocobo, appearing randomly in classes B, A and S; the higher the rank the more likely it is that Joe and Teioh will make an appearance. Because black and gold chocobos are immune to slow motion part of a chocobo race, racing Teioh and Joe without using a black or gold chocobo will give Joe and Teioh a slight advantage.
Teioh was originally intended to be named "Hyperion", but it contained too many letters for the character limit.
Joe and his chocobo are briefly mentioned by a NPC in Sector 8 in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. The chocobo is referred to as "Hyperion".
Hyperion is referenced in the Brain Blast as the fastest chocobo in the chocobo races.
The word Teioh is Japanese for Emperor or Sovereign.
