Attacking Zelda Cuccos (Chickens) until they freak out!

Cucco Attack

Remember the good ol’ days of gaming when just a little bit of in-game animal abuse was extremely fun and funny.

One of my favourite things to do in any video game was to attack the crap out of the Zelda chickens, they are called cuccos in the game. My favourite Zelda game was The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This was, in my opinion, the best cucco kicking and cucco attack in any of the Zelda games.

How do you pronounce “cucco”?

Not quite sure how to say this word? We got you covered. Here is a quick mp3 audio file on how to pronounce cucco if you were curious:

Oh so satisfying!

Why was this such a satisfying feeling? I am not sure why, but it gave you a nice short break from the actual game play. Hunting through fortresses and unlocking chunks of the map was extremely fun but it was nice to just sit back once in awhile and smash a cucco right in their cute stupid faces.

The Cucco attack!

The funny thing about these creatures is how calm and chill they always are. They will actually take quite a few hits from Link before they become angry. However, when they do get angry, you better run for cover quickly!

A fleet of them come flying in like maniacs ready to rip every chunk of skin off your little body until there is nothing left. They will kill you if you let them.

If you are anything like me, then your childhood was filled with hours of Zelda and these birds probably made life just a little bit more enjoyable when playing these games.

The various Zelda games use and display the cucco in different ways sometimes, but at the end of the day you just want to cuddle with one.
