Watch a flock of Cucco utterly destroy a moblin in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda players know attacking Cuccos isn’t a wise decision. Apparently, this Moblin in Breath of the wild wasn’t sent the memo.

Attacking a Cucco in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or any Zelda game (save for Twilight Princess) is not only rather mean, but will cause the normally docile chickens to retaliate in mob fashion. When attacked by the entire flock, the only option is to run away as fast as you can or your health will run out – rather quickly.

It seems this Moblin wasn’t quick enough, going by this gif from jakeinator21, because after attacking Link while he was holding a Cucco (you can use the critter to fly short distances), he gets a deadly surprise.

The gif was pulled from a video posted by the awesome videogamedunky, which you can watch in full below (thanks, gurblegooch).

It’s rather fun to watch, honestly, especially if you are a Zelda veteran. And if you’re not, it provides you with an interesting way in which to take down a foe with little effort.
