White chocobo (白チョコボ, Shirochokobo?), also capitalised as white chocobo, is a recurring type of chocobo. It is one of the rarest types of chocobo, and is a support character able to aid the party. Rarely is the white chocobo available as a mount like other chocobos.

White chocobo can be found as an enemy in the Hakawea Shore area of the Phon Coast, but it only spawns under set circumstances. The player must go to Hakawea Shore, and ride the Wayward Chocobo towards the Pora-Pora Sands area. From there, a bangaa Game Hunter will reveal a hidden path that leads to the Caima Hills. The player must go through the path to Caima Hills, then return to Pora-Pora Sands all the way to Hakawea Shore. The white chocobo will await the player right where the Wayward Chocobo was.

It is able to use White Wind and Choco Comet.
