Turkeys, chickens, and other birds have shown up in plenty of games before A Link to the Past, taking the abuse from heroes and villains alike for years, but this is when the birds rallied together and said, "Enough!" Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (and future games) gave gamers the freedom to explore the fields of Hyrule. As a carefree, young boy you can chop grass, throw rocks, and, oh yes, abuse cuccos.
But a bird can only take so much. When a cucco suffered continued abuse from the blade-wielding child, the cuccos retaliated in one of the most graphic attacks on a human by a chicken. After taking several blows from the boy's sword, getting stuck with arrows, and being pelted with a boomerang, the cucco victim let out a loud "cockadoodle doo" and called a horde of like-minded friends to assault the child. Luckily, the boy had caught a fairy in a bottle just a few minutes before the attack, who was able to nurse the young hero back to health.
