The Cucco is a new item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. This item originates from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Cuccos appear as items. If the Cucco is grabbed and thrown at a player, it will call its flock and start attacking that player relentlessly, although other players can be hurt if too close to them. If a Cucco is not picked up and hit by a player, they will start attacking the player that last hit it instead.

Cuccos also appear as enemies in Smash Run, but more resemble their original design from they wander around the area and do not until they take enough damage from fighters which cause the screen to flash red and attack fighters in swarms. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Trophy Description (3DS)

Now there's a creature that's just poultry in motion. It usually minds its own business, but if you attack it, the chickens will come home to roost--by body-slamming you over and over...and over... A pretty fowl tactic if you ask us. It's almost futile to fight back, and eventually they'll lose interest and stop driving you Cucco.

Trophy Description (Wii U)

Why exactly a Cucco flees is anyone's guess. Maybe it knows what will happen when it is attacked and is trying to save you from that boundless rage. Once angered, it will call its flock and attack the last player to hit it. If it's thrown and hits a fighter, whomever it hits will suffer the wrath of the flock.

Trivia

  • Cucco's can't be eaten by Wario.
  • Even though Cuccos are 3D when appearing as an item, in Smash Run their models are pixels instead. The same goes with the Lakitu from the Assist Trophy (which is a pixel model) and a Lakitu in Smash Run, which is in 3D.
