These are not Final Fantasy Chocobos. They’re Toyotas. But if they were, I guess they’d look like this? Or maybe they’d be fluffier? Not sure, but what is sure is that Toyota has once again teamed up with Square Enix to sell Japanese people cars.

Chocobos, of course, are those big, flightless bird creatures Final Fantasy characters can ride around on.

While previously ads for the Prius C (aka the Aqua in Japan) featured Dragon Quest music. But this time, as Inside Games points out, it’s the Chocobo Theme from Final Fantasy.
