Cuccos have been part of the Legend of Zelda series for years, so you'd think they'd be given a fair degree of respect. However, that isn't the case with the birds in Breath of the Wild - in fact, some players are hell-bent on making these poor creatures suffer as much as possible.
Cuccos, as we already know, possess incredible power that should not be messed with. However, the guys over at Dorkly decided to see what would happen if these seemingly invincible creatures were thrown into molten lava at Death Mountain.
The event itself is something of an anticlimax, but the journey there - which features quite a few tussles with high-level enemies and a lot of laughing - makes it all worthwhile (there is some bad language in this video, so consider yourself warned):
Slightly annoyed that the Dorkly guys didn't actually hurl a Cucco into Death Mountain itself as advertised, YouTuber ThatOneShowFUN decided to do it right and actually trekked to the summit of the mountain itself to throw his Cucco:
What's the worst thing you've ever done to a Cucco? Don't worry, we won't judge you.
I've pushed dogs into water as well, but they just magically respawn after a few seconds.
I watched the second video this morning. So much effort to turn a cucco into KFC(Kakariko Fried Cucco). I wonder what PETA will have to say about it? Someone should tell them for a laugh.
I actually did this about 2 weeks ago.
Finally glad we can kill those pesky chickens.
I first thought it was gonna come at me after I threw it in the lava with fire cuccos chasing after me.
The day I realised that thwacking a chicken with a weapon produces eggs.. .. Very happy!!
But don't thwack your chicken too much, kids!!
I honestly doubt any of them died. I betcha they're just sitting and waiting. Waiting for their moment to strike and bring down fiery revenge down upon us. Don't let your guard down! XD
Sadly, the only thing I done to a Cucco was call it names. Guess I should start playing "The Legend of Zelda: The Cucco Adventures"
Hm... Fried Chicken, I mean Fried Cucco.
This is basically how my younger daughter plays the entire game. The actual quest is way too much for her, and she is afraid of the monsters, so she goes around beating up NPCs and critters, trying to find new ways to deal with cuccos and buying a house so she can decorate it with a soup ladle and pot lid hanging in those display cases.
It's honestly amazing to me that she can find so many things to do without actually getting anywhere in the game. Who would have thought there would ever be a Zelda game that makes such a nice sandbox?
@JasmineDragon I think I piled about a hundred hours into GTA: Vice City on the PS2 without completing a single story mission.
Oh-a-oh. You were the first one. Oh-a-oh. You were the last one...
The only way the evil can be destroyed is by throwing it into the fires of mount doom, errr death mountain.
I was kind of disappointed that if you throw one into the water, it just disappears. I always thought it was hilarious in Skyward Sword to toss them into the drink and watch them swim around for a while.
She should try populating the pond by Link's house, I managed to get a few frogs and fish swimming in there before they disappeared.
@BionicDodo Video killed the Cucco star?
Well. I guess that's that.
Anyone thrown one in a bog yet?
It's funny I played over 100 hours beating the game and seeing most of the sites and never had my horse die. Then I let my nephew play to try the game within 10 minutes he killed my horse!
Next update makes lava cuccos murder link
I haven't tried this, but I do find comedy in seeing a wolf howl, immediately shooting it with an arrow, and then hearing the sound effect of it dying whilst meat suddenly.
Considering how indestructible they are, how else are you going to cook some KFC?
@dougphisig RIP in pieces horsie QQ
ThatoneshowFUN plays like I do, shouting "no,no,no!" fairly frequently.
@SanderEvers ONE CUCCO TO FIND THEM!!
@ZurapiiYohane I think I saw a video of a Cucco beating Ganon. Not sure about the second stage of the fight though. Don't think it's possible
I'm surprised the Cuccos don't emerge either as fried Cucco or as undead skeletons that REALLY can't be killed.
They can't stop because they are on inside evil. Killing NPC says a lot about a person that's for sure. Sorry bout it
I don't understand why this is the second video and yet they still didn't go kill the guardians in advance. I'd clear the path first, then go get the chicken before the next bloodmoon.
They forget the cuccoo are immortal they where cast down from Din Nayru and farore becouse they could not eat the cuccoo lol. Now link made the same mistake. The cuccoo is now absorbing all the lava from dead mountain and is waiting for the DLC to become the main villain lol. "revenge of the cuccoo"
@liljmoore IIRC you can kill them with the fire rod in Link's Awakening.
@Gridatttack And don't forget you can kill them with the Ember Seeds in the Oracle games.
@Gridatttack @sp_initiate-001 so basically what your two are saying is that only fire can kill them.
Time to stock up some flame swords and rods
I Can't Stop Throwing You ! (Throwing Cucco)
Nobody a bit baffled that there are only roosters in Hyrule (where are the hens)? Lol.
The worst thing I did was putting a Cucco into a campfire. Oh and I killed one of my horses in the game on purpose, just to see what happens. Afterwards I felt very bad, luckily I can revive him someday (and he was very tame to start of with. What have I done!).
I don't even think I would have the heart to do such a thing to a poor "defenseless" Cucco!
Boy those guys are annoying.
@liljmoore Swords are not advisable regardless of enchantment. All it does is bring the Cucco Revenge Squad down on your head. If the rods fire projectiles, that'll work as only items that fire projectiles or can be used as projectiles can kill the evil chickens.
