Hyrule Warriors’ Boss Pack came out today in Europe and Japan, and a brand new unlockable character has been revealed that was not previously announced!

Spoiler warning: you may want to refrain from reading beyond this point if you do not want to know who this character is. Turn back now if you consider this spoiler-ish material.


It is none other than a giant Cucco! The Giant Cucco is unlockable by earning an A-rank on a particular mission that has not been revealed as of yet. In previous Zelda games, Cuccos would always dish out a punishment, but now you can play as a Cucco and dish out the punishment yourself!

Check out some gameplay featuring the Giant Cucco below.

    I think Hyrule Warriors has just fulfilled some life long dreams…..

    • JaidynReiman

      Yeah, maybe…

  • GreenLinkMaster

    >.> really? *sighs* so much for Groose. instead, we getta goose. or rather a cucoo. anyways, I was really hoping for a more interesting character or something. maybe deku, Goron, and Zora trans for young Link? well, I guess we have Darunia and Ruto. what about well…I guess there aren’t meny suitable character from SS. but wut about groose? throw in an interesting character for the 2d Zeldas! T~T a cucoo?

    • Vladislak

      Having a character from the Adult or Downfall timelines would have been great.

      Still, I’m totally exited to peck Ganondorf’s face in. 😛

    • JaidynReiman

      The Ganon pack was never announced to have new characters. Ganon’s Fury and Cucco’s Fury are even separate modes, you can’t play as them in normal modes.

      I still want Saria, though… -_-

    • Isaac Cook

      I was hoping for new bosses. You know, cuz it’s the BOSS pack. I know we weren’t going to get a playable Vaati, but I was at least hoping for a boss version.

      • GreenLinkMaster

        O-o Vaati? (mot sure that’s how his name goes but..)
        will you marry me?
        Vatti (< how I always though it went) is awesome! (more the human sorcerer form than the dark donut form) if he got into this game even just as an enemy I would fanboy Squee and die. XD

        • Deva Ashera

          Its spelled Vaati (http://zeldawiki.org/Vaati)
          I’d love to see him too. I’ve been saying for years that he’d have been a great addition for Smash Bros. to be Toon Link’s Villain.

          • Isaac Cook

            I know, I love Vaati as well. I really wish they were more thoughtful with their character decisions. (regarding both games)

          • Deva Ashera

            Yeah, but I could understand why they only went with characters from Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Majora’s Mask, since they probably wanted a somewhat consistent artstyle (hence why all Gorons use the OoT design to match Darunia)
            That said, I don’t think many people would have minded if they did ‘realistic’ redesigns for the characters from the more cartoonish games..like I’d love Princess Hilda, Vaati, Tetra, Oracle Din, Oracle Nayru, Aghanim, and many others.
            That said, at least some of the other games are referenced by Weapons and Colours

    Pure awesome. This may make up for the Tingle B.S.

    • TanukiTrooper

      Tingle is awesome. How very dare you! Kooloo Limpah!

      • Jason

        Death to Tingle!!

  • Nickos Foivos

    no wonder it has passed 1 million of sales! amazing work!

  • Zithis

    While i am still bitter about Skull Kid, i will say that for giving us this masterpeice, i forgive you Koei, still not happy about it, but i’m not mad at you guys anymore

  • Trinosaur

    I just want Groose

  • Nick

    this game just gets so ridiculous lmao, idk why i got so invested in it at first… i maybe played it for the first week and then got kinda bored with it. it doesnt change much, no matter how many characters are added in.

  • Groose, Wind Waker, and the entirety of the 2D series have all been snubbed in favor of a giant chicken.

    I don’t know how to feel about this.

    • Deva Ashera

      To be fair, Cucco is just a game mode like Beast Ganon Mode is and they already had the model in the game, it required little work.

  • MasterFi
  • SquidKid

    Kinda Wanted to see Tetra hit the battlefield but I knew it wasn’t going to happen

  • ArkaneEvangale

    It’s baffling how Skull Kid isn’t his own character, using Majora’s Mask like a boss. Such potential.

  • randy191993

    So is it just another seperate boss mode or is the Cucco a actual playable character you can play as in free play?

  • Tyler Wilding

    So much for Demise being a Playable Character
