The Cucco is a chicken like domestic animal in the Legend of Zelda games. It debuted in Kakariko Vilage in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (1991) and returned in the majority of all following Zelda games and also the Spinoff Hyrule Warriors (2014) and as an Item and enemy in Super Smash Bros. 4 Wii U and 3DS (2014).

While the Cucco’s are usually peacefully they will attack Link if he continues to attack them for an extended period of time. The big twist is that the Cuccos are invincible and can follow Link to almost every location, they can become the most dangerous enemies in the Legend of Zelda games ironically.

The Cucco is of course a part of our big Link’s Blacklist Tribute.
