Chocobo Riding Mechanics

  • Sprint wears off after your Chocobo takes its 8th step.
  • Chocobos retain their Sprint speed while gliding; your stamina also recovers while in the air.
  • Halting (braking) while sprinting gives you a small boost as your Chocobo slides; it also allows you to recover some stamina.

How To Make Chocobo Faster

  • Press sprint
  • Between the Chocobo's 7th and 8th step, jump and glide.
  • Immediately after the Chocobo lands, press Halt (brake) to make the Chocobo slide.
  • Sprint again and repeat.

Do not let go of the Trot button while doing all of the steps. This allows you to have a longer time retaining sprint speed and lets you recover some stamina while doing it.
