Final Fantasy VII Remake is less than two months away, and Square Enix revealed a handful on new screenshots this morning showcasing Tifa’s moves, side quests, and, most importantly, some adorable and oddly proportioned summons. Naturally, fans immediately went to work and began commenting on Chocobo Chick and Carbuncle’s crazy designs, creating memes at the speed of light.
The Chocobo Chick is adorable and plump, shown sitting on its little tush with its Super Saiyan-like yellow hairdo sticking up even taller than Cloud’s. Carbuncle’s design was met with a more divided reception because, while the creature is cute, its forehead is more of a sevenhead, and a big ruby is just plopped right on there. A third summon, Cactuar, was shown off, but it looks exactly like anyone expected a Cactaur to look like in a Final Fantasy game.
Take a closer look at three special summons in #FinalFantasy VII Remake!

Reactions to Chocobo Chick where generally positive, but fans poked fun at its big ol’ head and spiky yellow hair reminiscent of Goku as a Super Saiyan, Cloud Strife himself, and even a certain Food Network star.
Fans React to Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Carbuncle
While some fans found Carbuncle’s Garfield-esque look adorable, several were disappointed it wasn’t more akin to its design from Final Fantasy XV, where its gem was turned into a small red horn.
