You can get killed on a chocobo in FFXI as an encounter with King Vinegaroon proved to me. My shell was fighting it when I hoped onto a Rabao Chocobo, got teleported across the desert, and was subsequently eaten.
Haha, that reminds me of a time when I was leveling in Bibiki Bay. We were fighting goblins near the entrance where the pass was quite small. Along came a cute little taru WHM on a chocobo while a near full HP goblin dropped his bomb... The poor taru got one shotted off their chocobo and slid a good 30 feet with their face in the sand.. We had no raise...
