Thanks to ps2boi22 for the inspiration!
So I was browsing the older articles on Reddit, looking for inspiration, when I came across this post:
Can anyone support the theory that the Chocobo are the 3-dimensional manifestation of a 4-dimensional omnipotent being?
…I’ll try lol? According to his friend (who told him the theory) Chocobos:
“relied heavily on the ability of the Chocobo to shift time by running into balloons. That the balloons represent something (he used science terminology I can’t remember) that shift spacetime and that the player is only able to stay within the current game dimension because the Chocobo has tethered itself the character on a particle level.”
This would roughly make many of the Chocobos from the Final Fantasy universe originate from Final Fantasy X. But if Chocobos truly are 3-dimensional manifestations of 4-dimensional beings, then they have to originate from the 4th dimension. How? First, we know from Danielsydeon that:
they exist simultaneously across multiple universes so yeah, maybe. Even on multiple worlds in connected universes.
Yet it’s quite possible Chocobos simply evolve similarly in these multiple worlds through coincidence as Curated_Chaos says:
Chocobos are domesticated animals, just like horses. Do you think that if there are in fact other dimensions that are similar to ours, that horses exist in those? it would be the same with chocobos i am sure.
But grojodoo considers something else:
Fat Chocobo in FF4 is in every location you visit and has the gear you give him. If he isn’t moving with you then where he keeps your stuff is 4th dimensional, if it’s the same fat Chocobo then he’s 4th dimensional. FF9 has that Chocobo paradise that’s another world. FF7 has one as a summon, so it’s definitely an avatar of some kind.
That’s right, isn’t it? And remember what the Dwarves had to say about the Fat Chocobo?
“Fat Chocobo? Insolent fool! It is the bird of the gods!”
Fat Chocobo, also known as the Godsbird, is a summon. Summons are usually gods or demigods, residing outside of out 3-dimensional arena. Think of the FreyMarch (Land of the Summon) in Final Fantasy IV. Rydia says “Time flows differently there”. That’s because FreyMarch is located in the 4th dimension.
The Chocobo summon resides in Land of the Summon. And every summon is “an objective “blueprint” of perfection”. That is, anything based on a 4th dimensional summon is the 3-dimensional manifestation of it.
Chocobo summons emanates physical Chocobos by birthing eggs in the respective worlds of the Final Fantasy universe. And that’s why you shouldn’t do drugs, kids.
