Boko (often translated into “Boco”) is the first ever Chocobo to have an major role in the story plot of Final Fantasy series. He made is first appearance in Final Fantasy II and captured the hearts of many, with his often cowardly ways. ^_^

 Boko was known to run off, at any sign of danger, leaving the hero (and his friend) Bartz to chase behind it while yelling, “Boco! Come back!!!” ^o^

But the start of the Chocobo character and theme song started with Boko. From Final Fantasy II to the current Final Fantasy (Final Fantasy XIII), there has always been Chocobos included in the game series. And Boko also shows up in a few other series, including: Dirge Of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy Tactics,  Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire Of The Rift, and Final Fantasy IX.

The physical appearance of Chocobos have changed over the years, starting with the 32-bit look of Boko (see: History Of Chocobos). The Chocobos have come a long way, baby! ^_-

-Kweh (End)!
