The Cuccos tend to hide a deadly secret. When attacked, a horde of Cuccos attack the player, often resulting in death, as they cannot be killed.
If the player excessively attacks the Cucco, instead of a horde of Cuccos attacking the player, the player turns into a Cucco. The player has full control of the Cucco, but it only lasts for a few seconds.
Super Smash Bros.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it is an item where if attacked, a horde of Cuccos attack that player. They are also a Smash Run enemy in 16-bit form.
"Now here's a creature that's just poultry in motion. It usually minds its own business, but if you attack it, the chickens will come home to roost -- by body-slamming you over and over... and over... A pretty fowl tactic if you ask me. it's almost futile to fight back, and eventually, they'll lose interest and stop driving you Cucco."
