Powers/Abilities: The Riding Rooster constrict existed as a being composed of electrical energy and its physical form was created with a razor-sharp beak and talons. Modeled after fictional video game characters from the Complete Fantasy XXXVI video game, the Riding Rooster construct was also created with the same weakness to water that its video game counterpart suffered from and it suffered significant and increasing damage the longer it remained in contact with water. Otherwise, it was superhumanly durable, able to resist the strong physical attacks from Ms. Marvel's "embiggened" fists and the fire powers of the Inhuman Inferno.
The Riding Rooster was also
created to be subservient to its master, the Inhuman Emulator.
Height: Unrevealed (approximately 7'10" head

(Marvel Rising: Squirrel Girl & Ms. Marvel#1 (fb) - BTS) - The electrical construct-generating Emulator created a construct of a Riding Rooster from the video game Complete Fantasy XXXVI.
Squirrel Girl & Ms. Marvel#1) - Emulator and the Riding Rooster
construct confronted the heroine Ms. Marvel on the campus of Empire
State University and Emulator unleashed the Riding Rooster against Ms.
Marvel. Ms. Marvel punched the construct and attempted to wrangle it as
the chicken went running through the streets. The Riding Rooster soon
turned and attempted to bite Ms. Marvel and the commotion drew the
attention of the young Inhuman Inferno, who joined in the fight against
the Riding Rooster. When Ms. Marvel kicked the Riding Rooster into the
air, Inferno flew up and punched the Riding Rooster in the neck before
setting it on fire. Angered, the Riding Rooster swiped at Inferno and
when Inferno quipped that the Riding Rooster didn't like being set on
fire, Ms. Marvel recalled how the riding roosters in the Complete Fantasy XXXVI video game
took extra damage in water and hurled the Riding Rooster in a nearby
fountain. Having been based on the video game's digital creatures, the
Riding Rooster construct took extra damage as predicted and ultimately
disintegrated while in the fountain.

It was unclear what sort of weight Emulator's electrical constructs truly had. They certainly had enough physical substance to interact with and harm other physical beings but being composed of electricity likely affected lessened their weight to an unrevealed degree. They likely did not not possess much weight at all, perhaps even just the minimum needed to interact with the physical world around them.
While the Riding Rooster did possess a form covered in what appeared to be feathers, these were not true feathers but rather, just electrical energy in the form of feathers. One might argue that its hair and eye color should be inapplicable since the construct did not truly possess either.
For those not familiar, the Riding Rooster from Complete Fantasy XXXVI was based on the Chocobos, which are large, yellow, riding, bird-like creatures from the Final Fantasy video game series.
