Under normal circumstances, Cuccos are seemingly invincible: nothing can strike them without incurring the wrath of the swarm. We’ve even witnessed Cuccos killing mini-bosses. Cuccos are hardcore! But what happens when you throw a Cucco into lava?

Would it still be invincible? Would the Cucco die? The fine folks over at Dorkly decided to test out what happens when you throw a Cucco into Death Mountain earlier this week, but they didn’t anticipate just how difficult it would be to even get the chicken across the map in the first place:

Along the way, they have to contend with assassin attacks, horseback shenanigans, Guardians, and even lightning. The thing is, they can’t drop the Cucco without risking a despawn, but sometimes, things got so dicey that they had no other choice but to let the creature run free. Even simple tasks like climbing a mountain became hilarious.

While you only see the highlights of the quest here, this whole thing took about an hour to accomplish. Regardless of the outcome, it was totally worth it.
