The Chocobo Knights are a recurring group of mounted knights in Final Fantasy. Frequently depicted as a specialized unit they use trained Chocobos as mounts to ride into battle.




Final Fantasy X

The Chocobo Knights of Spira is an elite group of mounted soldiers, consisting of the serious but kind Captain Lucil, cheerful Elma, and uncomfortable and slightly incompetent Clasko. They encounter Yuna and her guardians at various moments along Yuna's pilgrimage in Final Fantasy X and fight, bravely enough, in Operation Mi'ihen. Two years later in Final Fantasy X-2, the trio have joined the Youth League and Lucil and Elma have both risen to the positions of command, while Clasko is still low in the ranks and spends much of his time being ordered around. Later on, depending on the player's actions, Clasko may set up a Chocobo Ranch in the Calm Lands. During a trip to Mushroom Rock towards the end of the game, depending on the player's actions, the party may participate in a fighting tournament, with the last two opponents being Elma and Lucil. Elma attacks with a sword, and Lucil uses elemental gems. Depending on the player's actions late in the game, Elma may indicate that she is considering reorganizing the mounted Chocobo Knights.

Final Fantasy XI

The Chocobo Knights were active combat units some twenty years before original game events. Bred in San d'Oria the Chocobo Knight mounts underwent training that allowed them to bear the weight of heavy armor and withstand the shock of cavalry charges. Known as Destriers the Chocobo were characterized by their large, jet-black bodies and thick, powerful legs. With the decline of lance combat and improvements to ranged weaponry, Destriers lost their place in battle to the faster breeds; such as Coursers. The Chocobo Knights would be gradually faded out of the battlefield.
