Final Fantasy Fables
In the youth-targeted Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales, the player takes on the role of a chocobo that is friends with a white mage named Shirma. Over the course of the game, the chocobo must enter a series of storybooks, each one referencing a real-world fable adapted to fit the Final Fantasy franchise, and complete minigames.
The game Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon is the latest title in the Chocobo's Dungeon series, this time tied in with the kid-friendly Final Fantasy Fables name. In this game, the player character is a chocobo that travels with an adventurer named Cid who is in search of a gem to power his airship. Not long after the game begins, the pair find themselves in a village where the sound of a mysterious clock tower bell causes its residents to lose their memories. The chocobo enters the minds of the victims in order to fight off the force causing the memory loss.
Chocobo was given the Jet-Blades by Cid to make sure they work correctly. When he was out testing them, Mog asks Cid how his racing machine was coming along. After Chocobo is given a scooter with an annoying honking horn' Mog challenges him to a race. Chocobo manages to win the race, and Cid tells Mog that the reason why Chocobo won was because of the blue crystal on his leg. Dissapinted, Cid asks Mog to go on an adventure with Chocobo to uncover more information about the crystal.
