A chocatrice is a type of cockatrice made of chocolate that has so far appeared in the 2008 and 2012 Easter Events.
Easter 2008[edit | edit source]
In the 2008 Easter event, players had to dip a Cockatrice egg into chocolate, making the Chocatrice egg. This is then hatched into the chocatrice. It was a familiar that players could use only during the event. Players made up an insult and told the chocatrice that one of the nearby animals said it in order to get the chocatrice to attack it with its "Gooey Gaze" and turn it into chocolate chunks. The insult was often akin to something that would be said to a "noob".
When attempting to interact with another player's Chocatrice, the player receives the message "This is not the Chocatrice you're looking for." When a player tried to get it to target itself, the player received the message "The chocatrice refuses to target itself. How smart!". Also, if players attempted to make their chocatrice attack another player's chocatrice, they would have received the message "The Chocatrice is not interested in attacking that."
Easter 2012[edit | edit source]
When players wanted to hunt eggs for the Chocatrice, players had to start the hunt by talking to the Chocatrice and then receiving an Eggsterminator which had to be fired with the Marshmallow attack-style to crack the eggs they find and then shooting again on the Chocochick that was released from the egg.
Every 2 hours there were 5 eggs to be found across Gielinor, of which 2 were in member's areas. Finding at least 3 eggs and giving the 3 received Chocotreats to the Chocatrice would result in receiving a Chocolate egg on face mask from him.
When players would find all 5 eggs in 3 rounds they would receive a permanent Eggsterminator, after talking to the Chocatrice (or Evil Chicken) and asking them to enchant the Eggsterminator so that it didn't disappear after the Easter event had ended.
List of insults[edit | edit source]
Upon the player (at this point in the form of a bunny rabbit) selecting a target, an insult (usually a 'noob insult' or an insult making fun of the Chocatrice being made of chocolate) would automatically appear above the player's head. This would annoy the Chocatrice enough to attack that target for supposedly making fun of it. Each time, it would start with: "Hey, see that mouse/snail/rat/cockroach/spider over there?" It would then be followed by one of the random insults:
- "...It said you'd probably get owned by a chicken."
- "...It said you lost your tinderbox and cried."
- "...It made up a song about you and it's not very nice."
- "...It says it saw you die in Lumbridge cow field."
- "...It said I must have dropped your egg."
- "...It said you're even afraid of butterflies."
- "...It said you can't even wear bronze armour."
- "...It said you're thicker than toffee."
- "...It said you couldn't even do the Cook's Assistant quest."
- "...It says it took you three months to leave Tutorial Island."
- "...It said you're the ugliest creature it's ever seen."
- "...It read your diary and said it was boring."
- "...It said you put it off chocolate milk for life."
- "...It said you still burn shrimp."
- "...Oh my, I think it's staring at you menacingly."
- "...It says you're just a jumped-up piece of candy."
- "...Oh dear, it says you've never finished a quest."
- "...It said it's going to leave you out in the sun to melt."
- "...It says you still try to wear goblin armour."
- "...It's going to chop you up to make a selection box."
- "...It's threatening to melt you into hot chocolate."
- "...It just said you look stupid."
- "...It said you're just an egg on legs."
- "...It said it's going to turn you into a chocolate cake."
- "...It looks like it's going to eat you."
- "...I heard it plotting to pull your feathers out."
- "...It thinks you probably taste terrible."
- "...It said you probably couldn't even cast wind strike."

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This was the first non-members Familiar and follower, and (at the time) the only familiar that could be understood at level 1. It has since been followed by the Snow imps in the Christmas 2008 or Christmas 2009 events and the squirrels from the 2010 Easter event.
- The comment "This is not the chocatrice you are looking for", is a reference to the quote from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, when Obi-Wan Kenobi used a Jedi mind trick to pass a group of Stormtroopers by saying "These are not the droids you are looking for".
- The chocatrice appears to have an outdated texture on its model. This may however be due to the fact that chocolate itself has little texture, explaining its smooth and dull appearance.
