Chocobos are more than just overly large chicken-like creatures that got you from point A to point B. With the right tools, plenty of gil, and almost infinite patience, you could breed them to create special Chocobos with different abilities. You bought all the stalls in the Chocobo stable, equipped your lure, and captured a male and female in the wild to get started, but that was just the beginning. Once you started breeding--only with the right greens and nuts, of course--you created green, blue, black, and finally even gold Chocobos, releasing the ones that didn’t turn out right (or just angrily hitting the reset button). Or, if that was too time consuming, you could just take your Chocobos to Gold Saucer and race them for a profit! The Chocobos were pretty much a game within a game, which is why they stand out so much. Well, that, and the Chocobo dance.
