A fan’s Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay immediately enters the discussion for best ever with its attention to detail and incredible presentation.
A new Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay emerged online earlier this month, and it is one of the most visually stunning costumes created for the franchise in recent memory. Final Fantasy is currently enjoying a prolonged period of success following the launch of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which performed exceptionally well in sales and received plenty of critical praise for its bold new direction for a classic story. That complemented the sustained viability of Final Fantasy 14, the MMORPG from Square Enix that has attracted millions of dedicated players to its blend of innovative mechanics and familiar locations and characters.

For those unfamiliar with the series as a whole, the Final Fantasy chocobo is arguably the franchise’s mascot – though some misguided souls believe moogles, or even tonberries, are in the discussion. Most often depicted as a mount, the chocobo is a large bird that visually appears like a cross between a chicken and an ostrich, though iterations of the games have taken liberties with their various aesthetic choices for the creature. Chocobos often feature heavily into Final Fantasy stories, too, whether they’re simply present for many big moments as an accompanying mount or they’re actually winning fights as a summonable creature mid-battle.
Given the reverence many fans have for the birds, a Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay that wants to be well-received needs to be handled with exceptional care. That’s exactly what French cosplayer Mathoz did with their Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay, however, which is certainly in the running for the best ever representation of the creature in reality. Mathoz based their costume off the Final Fantasy 14 chocobo, which often comes equipped with a saddle, storage bags, and a bridle similar to those one might find on a horse in the real world. To say Mathoz nailed it would be an understatement – it’s an absolutely incredible take on Final Fantasy chocobos that needs to be seen by fans.
The Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay Mathoz created even blinks! It’s a visual marvel, and the kind of creative endeavor that many of us can only dream of embarking on. It’s pretty clear that this is not something that most people can replicate at home, so Mathoz’s take on the Final Fantasy 14 chocobo is likely going to remain one-of-a-kind.
As cosplayers and costume designers grow more talented and ambitious, it will be interesting to see which challenges they decide to tackle in the future. Final Fantasy as a series has a lot of creatures that would be both visually breath-taking and complex to recreate, so there’s no shortage of options in that franchise alone. Personally, it would be great to see a malboro or flan as detailed as this Final Fantasy chocobo cosplay at a convention center sometime soon.
