'Chocobo' is the name of a character, a bird, in video games.
My sons tell me that it appears in the Final Fantasy series,
as well as in a spin-off 'Chocobo Racing'
(Apparently Cloud is the hero of 'Final Fantasy 7')

Hope this answers your question.

agree  Erik Anderson: Chocobo has been around long enough for me to remember him showing up in old Nintendo games.
