One of the most loveable characters to come out of the Final Fantasy series is the Moogle (Moguri, Japanese), they are small, good-natured creatures that are usually white or tan in color and has a protruding antenna from its head with a small red, orange, or yellow ball at the end called a "pompom". They have either red or purple wings with ears shaped like a cat or rabbit. You'll know it's a moogle when you hear or see the word "kupo" which is their trademark sound. Next to Chocobos, the Moogles are often considered mascots for the Final Fantasy series. They first appeared on Final Fantasy III for the Famicom (Eurasia) and as Final Fantasy VI for the SNES is North America. Square Enix is going to bring an enhanced remake of Final Fantasy III, updated with 3D visuals to the Nintendo DS by November 2006. Of course Japan will have it first by 08.06 then Europe by 09.06, then finally NA. This moogle paper model was hosted by Takuya, but their site is down so I hope they won't mind if I host it in rapidshare. Enjoy!
