Zelda fans, Hyrule Warriors' new DLC has a big surprise for you

The fourth and final downloadable add-on for Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo's action game set in the world of The Legend of Zelda, gives you the opportunity to play as Ganon. But the DLC also contains a unlockable, playable creature even more fearsome, early players of the add-on have discovered.

If you're planning on playing Hyrule Warriors' Boss Pack, which doesn't hit North America until March 12, well, consider yourself spoiler-warned.

Hyrule Warriors players will be able unleash havoc while playing as a giant Cucco — Zelda's version of a chicken — if they score an "A" ranking in Ganon's survival missions. The Cucco, as seen in the YouTube video below captured by player "moccos-tan Isedelica," can inflict damage through pecking, an explosive wave attack and by summoning dozens of other enraged, but much smaller Cuccos.
