#105: Mighty Steed

I'm not surprised that the Chocobo came out of it all as the dominant species in that particular evolutionary branch...

I did not expect THAT. I thought it would be a rickshaw or something.

Well i suppose it is a traditional mount for elves and tradition often has a reason. like GIANT BATTLE TURKEYS!!!!!

GOBBLE GOBBLE! Turkey mount of DOOM AND WOE! ALL HAIL THE TURKEY!

I was expecting the broken down truck, but if we are spoofing Final Fantasy this actually makes more sense.

Glorious. xD

Fun Fact: Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird instead of the bald eagle.

Grey, Cory. Did you two go back in time and show him this comic? ;D

That sure is some Hugo Award-worthy work right there.

Hurr hurr.

Congratulations/condolences.

ALL SHALL FEAR THE MIGHTY TURCOBO! TREMBLE AND DESPAIR!!!

I was expecting a wimpy looking chocobo type deal. Instead we get a Turkey of death, ready to plow down legions of minions in its wake. I couldn't be happier. Also the look on the clerics, Arins, and Rads faces are priceless.

All right! It WAS a giant chocobo. Do I get a prize?

Pfft! Turkey ryder is noob. How U steer turkey w/o bit? Collar no wrk--turkey jst go where trky want.

There are a lot of emphasis lines coming out of this doorway for the last two strips. I kinda feel like this doorway is the most important thin in the EDA universe. Maybe those three standing boards and that barrel can pick up "Best Supporting Actor" while those amazing emphasis lines grab "Best Cinematography".

Now that the reveals are all complete, let's move on to some action sequences. And maybe a touching scene where Gunny shows back up and tell Rad "you forgot your hat."

So this one night a Chocobo got reallllly drunk, and when he woke up the next day next to that turkey he never expected THAT nine months later, huh?

Imp Emissary:

That may not be entirely accurate.

Riding a giant turkey's probably not the smoothest of rides. Rad looks like he's gonna vom.

what is that supposed to do? make people eat new year's dinner to death?

It's a turkey. It's delicious.

If it survived long enough to grow to that size, it has to be fast.

Except when you try to sleep in a house that is next to a turkey farm. Those birdies are goddamn obnoxious and incredibly loud!

That's what Erin was distressed about? Erin, you dolt! That's a mount you can EAT when celebrating your successful escape!

You've kept us waiting for 3 weeks and it was worth every moment.

I expected Rad's expression to be one of restrained elation at how cool this is. "We're getting away! On a giant bird! We're just like Sam and Frodo!"

i live in norther europe. turkeys aren't commonly farmed here

Gobble gobble, motherfucker.

Well, it's no space raptor butt invasion, but they did the best they could under the circumstances.

*plays Free Bird*

Other than that, I guess we should give thanks for this pending escape...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, MOTHERFUCKERS!!!

Based on Erin's reaction two strips ago, I was expecting something much more...puny.

If that was a Chocobo-sized Cucco those soliders would all be running for their lives now.

After generations of inbreeding, sometimes you get a Gold Chocobo other times you get...this.

That is quite the ride indeed. Was not expecting it to be honest.

...Well, that certainly was the last thing I would ever expect. Even if it makes sense that a parody of Final Fantasy would have some kind of giant bird mount...

Still, did not see a giant turkey, of all things, coming.

O.O

Well, that's... that's...

What?

[applesauce]

Is Rad ever going to recover, though?

The look on the White Mage's face is... slightly disturbingly gleeful.

The fact that she rides upon Turbocobo, lord of all turkeys, is downright hilarious though.

PS. where is Murderbat while this is going on? Off raiding the fridge and waiting for Gunny to get back so they can star in the next episode of their early morning crime fighting cartoon?

He's a bat whose mouth makes up 90% of his body's volume! He's a genetically engineered cyborg super soldier from the future! Together, they fight crime!

Its the Turkey from Thankskilling! RUUUUUUUUN!

Why does this remind me of Thankskilling? Gobble gobble mother f'er

And suddenly the soldier wishes the motorcycle killed him. Now he faces a fate far worse than he could have imagined!

So does Erin! But that's mostly embarrassment!
