Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })"Good Morning, Crono!"Chrono Trigger is a RPG for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System; it was developed by Squaresoft in conjunction with several members of then-rival Enix and released in 1995. The game tells the story of Crono, a Heroic Mime who meets a young girl named Marle at his hometown's Millennial Fair, a festival thrown to celebrate the dawn of the year 1000 AD. When a teleportation device made by Crono's best friend, Lucca, goes out of control and sends Marle four hundred years into the past, Crono jumps in after her, kicking off an adventure throughout time that will span millions of years.Chrono Trigger was the last hurrah for the golden age of epic JRPGs on the SNES, and the crown jewel in a hit series of Square games that included Final Fantasy VI, Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG, and several others that no one bothered to release outside Japan. The game features art and character designs by Dragon Ball mangaka Akira Toriyama and music by Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsuda, and Noriko Matsueda. Also unique is the battle system, which combined the Active Time Battle system of Final Fantasy VI with position-based special moves known as Techs, often requiring the player to wait and time their attacks accordingly to maximize damage output.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Square followed up Chrono Trigger with two sequels. The first, Radical Dreamers for the Satellaview, has not seen the light of day outside of Japan like the Satellaview add-on itself, though a translated ROM is available online. The second, Chrono Cross for the PlayStation, incorporates parts of Radical Dreamers. Chrono Trigger itself has a PS1 port that adds a number of brief anime cutscenes and a few plot modifications to get it in sync with the then-still-in-development Chrono Cross. Square Enix published a long-awaited Updated Re-release in late 2008 for the Nintendo DS; this re-release retained the good parts of the PS1 port, re-translated the script to overcome the hurdles of both censorship and memory limitations present in the mid-1990s, and threw in some bonus dungeons and a new ending for good measure.note This port also saw a European release in 2009. Since then, it has seen releases on Apple's iOS platform in 2011, Android in 2012, and Steam in 2018.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })This has nothing to do with the series about a nun and a demon despite said series having a name that falls into the same naming convention as the games.Useless trivia: this was one of the last Square games to be developed on Apple hardware before they switched to Silicon Graphics workstations. Square is notable as one of few Japanese developers, if not the only one, to develop games on Apple computers, and at least one Square employee did all of his work on the Apple II well into the SNES days.Please read before viewing: this page contains numerous spoilers from Chrono Cross, which are not labeled as such outside of the spoiler markers, so read carefully from this point forward if you don't want to have Chrono Cross spoiled. Please try to mark any spoilers involving Chrono Cross if you hide a spoiler from that game.

 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_106f1a77
comment
A Form You Are Comfortable With: Spekkio takes the form of an enemy close to the player's level. If the party is critically under-leveled by the time they meet them (levels 9 and under), they will see a frog. Spekkio's final form, a Nu, requires grinding to Level 99 to see it. What form they take also dictates how hard it will be to defeat them, should you choose to fight them.

Cherry Tapping: In a horrifying inversion, the game does this to you via the Nu. In battle, Nu will either deal ((Current HP) - 1) damage or 1 damage. So be prepared to be hilariously and humiliatingly killed by taking 1 damage while having only 1 HP. Thankfully, there's a modicum of fairness in this skillset, as there are actually two kinds of Nus: one deals ((Current HP) - 1), the other 1, and they don't coordinate their attacks. Several of the end-game bosses and enemies have the ability to do this to you. Especially humiliating and noticeable if you're over-leveled, since most of their attacks would do scratch damage to you. Zeal's second form in particular is rather annoying, because hitting her with an Area of Effect attack will result in her casting ((Current HP) - 1) and MP Buster on you, leaving your character with only 1 HP and nothing else. She usually follows this up with a life drain spell.

Coup de Grâce Cutscene: The Dragon Tank doesn't just vanish like most enemies. After you've defeated it in normal battle, it triggers a sequence where Crono takes a flying leap to the top of the machine and plunges in his katana for the final blow. This causes the whole bridge to explode.

Diabolus ex Nihilo: Lavos' origins remain a mystery, and some of its powers are fairly inexplicable. The Black Omen, a UFO powered by the equally-cryptic Mammon Machine, is somehow cobbled together from the remains of the Ocean Palace.

Gaia's Lament
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_13a6b7ef
comment
Gaia's Lament: No sun, no food. A simple yet insurmountable problem for Doan and his comrades in the future. Lavos' eruption blocked out the sun and choked the atmosphere with soot. In the Dark Ages, the magical floating kingdom of Zeal used to draw renewable power from the Sunstone, but mothballed it in favor of the Mammon Machine's energy. Queen Zeal also did away with the Gurus for preaching about living in accordance with nature and crap like that.

Heal It with Water: Marle and Frog are the two Water-aligned party members, and they are the only ones with dedicated healing spells. Marle functions more like a White Mage, with a more dedicated healing and support arsenal, whereas Frog is more of a Combat Medic, where he can dish out damage and keep the party alive.

No Bikes in the Apocalypse: Played relatively straight.

The party eventually borrows a turbocycle from Johnny, but are required to race him to use it.

Evolutionary Stasis: Humans haven't changed one iota in 65 million years aside from the development of magic, and there's a number of other species that haven't changed at all either except for color. This is justified when you fight the final boss - turns out Lavos has personally controlled humanity's evolution since its crash landing in 65,000,000 BC. Apparently, the original form of man serves it best for its meal.

Peninsula of Power Leveling
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_16972b3c
comment
Peninsula of Power Leveling: Several, based on what stage of the game you're at: You can visit 65,000,000 BC as soon as you access the End of Time, several dungeons before you actually need to go there. In 65,000,000 BC lies the Dactyl's Nest, an area you're not supposed to visit until the second time you arrive at the time period. The enemies there give three times the typical amount of EXP than battles in the next storyline dungeon do, at only a mild increase in difficulty. There's also the Nu in the Hunting Range. It can't kill you, but you can defeat it for TPs. It's somewhat difficult to find, however. The Fiendlord's Keep has a chamber (right-hand path from entryway) before the room where Flea's fought that has three groups that drop 413 experience each (which is decent), but each one also often drops a Mid Ether (restores 30 MP in battle), 720 gold (which is nice), and give 11 TPs for icing on the cake. While taken aboard the Blackbird, you can encounter mooks which, despite posing a minimal threat, still give more EXP than their challenging recolors from the Ocean Palace. The Geno Dome starts with a conveyor belt which has five sets of enemies, which reward a total combined EXP of roughly 10,000, far greater than any other location in the entire game. It also gives a decent amount of TPs. A garbage chute at the end of the belt allows you to travel back to the beginning and reset the enemies, making it the perfect location to grind. In the Black Omen, there is a hall which puts you against three enemies every time you walk through it. If you're strong enough to beat them all before they can escape, you can learn all your Techs easily. It also contains an enemy from whom you can steal Strength Capsules, items that give a permanent +1 bonus to your Strength attribute.

Extreme Speculative Stratification
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_19e991a6
comment
Extreme Speculative Stratification: The Kingdom of Zeal, occupying the era of 12,000 BC, has a populace of elites inhabiting Floating Continents festooned with Crystal Spires and Togas, and use their powerful magic to make an easy life, while the "earthbound" without magic are forced to wear rags and live in caves. Things used to be more fair, until Queen Zeal rose to power and rearranged society around the worship of magic and its ultimate source, Lavos. They get their comeuppance, though: trying to use Lavos as a power source proves not to be a good idea and Zeal is sent crashing into the ocean.

Missing Main Character: For most of the game you Can't Drop the Hero, but towards the end of the main quest, Crono is removed from the party after he dies, forcing the player to choose another party member to replace him. Notably, the quest to get Crono back is optional as it is possible to complete the rest of the game without him.

comment
Multiple Endings: There are 13, many of which can only be attained in a New Game+. Variations for a couple of these depends on whether Crono is dead, Magus is in your party, if you completed certain quests, and the method you used to reach Lavos. Quite a few of them are joke endings, while two others are just glorified credit reels. The thirteenth ending is featured exclusively in the remake.

The Slow Path
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_1c7a7a52
comment
The Slow Path: Robo makes use of it in order to restore the forests back in the Middle Ages. He stays behind with Fiona to labor at reconstruction, as the rest of the party simply hops in the Epoch and zooms forward to 1000 AD when Robo's work is complete and their friend is enshrined as a hero. He's in a somewhat dilapidated state, but not beyond Lucca's ability to repair him. He also uses his 400 year sojourn to try and reason out the puzzle of the Gates and their relation to Lavos, speculating the existence of The Entity being the party responsible for their existence rather than Lavos itself. The Nu in the Lost Sanctum trains for 65,000,600 years after you beat him.

Looks Like Orlok
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_1d5786ff
comment
The player's party consists of an anthropomorphic frog, a self-aware humanoid robot, a cavewoman in a bikini-slash-cat costume, and — optionally — a world-threatening dictator who Looks Like Orlok. No one cares. Crono's mother has more to say on the odd ensemble of Crono's time-displaced sidekicks than the entire rest of the NPC cast, and even she doesn't seem too worried about them. This is especially evident with Magus, as while people will now suddenly know whatever name you've chosen to given him, they pay no mind to him, even when he's the one they're talking to.

Total Eclipse of the Plot: Following a lead from Gaspar, the party has the option of journey to the top of Death Peak with the Chrono Trigger to bring Crono back to life. At first, the egg shatters and does nothing. After a minute or two, the sun is eclipsed, and when the darkness evaporates, you're back in the Ocean Palace facing Lavos, now frozen in time.

Ominous Floating Castle: Zeal Palace. The BGM is one of the more ominous tracks used in the game. The palace stands upon the highest peak in the floating rocks that make up Zeal. They don't get more ominous than the Black Omen. Originally an undersea power plant plugged into Lavos' power, it's been warped into a futuristic airship but can't go anywhere, rendering it little more than a flying arcology.

Easing into the Adventure: Good morning, Crono! Don't forget to feed the cat. Crono and company first embark on the (comparatively) simple task of retrieving Marle. Rather than receiving a medal for his heroism, Crono's reward is a death sentence, so the party haphazardly flees into a random Time Gate, uncertain of whether they can ever return. It ends up depositing them in the Future and that's when Lavos enters stage right.

Mistaken for Murderer: Kidnapper in this case. As soon as Crono returns from the past for the first time after saving the princess, he's arrested for kidnapping. This is due to the fact that the "Chancellor" is now a descendant of Yakra, and since you went back in time and stopped the original Yakra from impersonating the Chancellor, his broodlings took it upon themselves to finish what he had started. The "mistake" is actually an act of revenge.

Cardboard Prison: Guardia Castle's security really isn't the best. When Crono is jailed at the beginning, you either trick the guards to escape, or Lucca will bust in and take out most of the guards. Even if you stay put, there is a hole leading to the adjacent cell, and from there a gaping hole leading outside. In fact, the most valuable chests are accessible via a giant network of loose stones and holes in the walls. The Blackbird's brig isn't much of an improvement. You can fake an illness to get the guards to come in, setting up a sneak attack from your team, or you can pull an Air Vent Escape through a completely unprotected vent in the ceiling.

Anachronism Stew: At least in the SNES version: Dalton uses the iconic phrase "We have lift-off, Houston!!" as he engages the modified Epoch for the first time. In the Chrono Trigger universe, there is no such place as Houston. Then again, Dalton has an awareness of the fourth wall. The presence of stoves and refrigerators in 1000 AD, the (relatively) advanced state of 600 AD, and dome cities in 1999. Justified in-universe due to Lavos advancing the evolution of humanity.

Generation Xerox: The Guardia line. Yakra, the monster that haunts Manolia Cathedral in Guardia.

In the 400 years between 1000 and 600 AD, they fail to pose a threat at all. Ozzie, whose descendant is the mayor (or janitor) of Medina Village in the present. The only difference is that somehow, the present Ozzie is purple.

Apathetic Citizens: The citizens of Arris Dome don't care what you found in their basement, or that you risked your life down there. They're all starving, so unless you are bringing them food, they don't care what you are or what you did. The residents of Zeal would rather bask in their own luxury than be concerned about messing with questionable energy sources, or even about the simple idea that "what goes up must come down." The NPCs' blasé attitudes towards the Black Omen are justifiable, as it has been there as long as they can remember, and hasn't caused anyone any trouble.

The World Is Just Awesome: In the Beyond Time ending, the credits scroll over the nighttime Moon Festival, rendered in gorgeous Mode 7. It gradually pans out to reveal the planet floating in space, this time unmarred by Lavos' eruption.

One-Time Dungeon
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_274aca0c
comment
One-Time Dungeon: The Prison Towers. Once completed, you cannot backtrack that area, even after completing all of the Guardia quests. Fiendlord's Keep. once you 'defeat' Magus, the botched reawakening literally swallowed the place by a colossal Time Gate. The Black Tyrano fortress in 65,000,000 B.C. is destroyed when Lavos crashes into it (although its boss reappears in the Giant's Claw dungeon later on). Mt. Woe in 12,000 B.C. (a floating mountain) is no longer accessible after the chain anchoring it to the ground breaks and it falls into the sea. The Ocean Palace in 12,000 B.C. is no longer accessible after Lavos awakens, destroying it and the Kingdom of Zeal. Also the Black Bird as the heroes accidentally shoot it down after recovering the Wings of Time and finding that Dalton not only installed weapons but altered the controls while failing to label the buttons. The whole entire Antiquity 12,000 BC sequence up until the Black Omen. Once the Ocean Palace is destroyed by Lavos, all of the available locations, including the dungeons are gone due to the world's destruction. Post-Ocean Palace, you are unable to backtrack until you complete the Blackbird, which also falls under this trope. After revisiting Magus at the North Cape (fought or joined), you can try to backtrack, but there is almost nothing to explore outside of the Black Omen since all locations were destroyed.. The Sunken Desert gets patched once you let Robo help out Fiona after defeating Melphyx. Once you beat the boss of Geno Dome, Robo shuts the place down permanently, putting an end to its human-processing operations but also effectively killing the robots and computers inside. Including whichever one was responsible for opening the front door. The Black Omen is also a possibility, depending on which time period you finish it in. Completing it in the earliest time period (12,000 B.C.) prevents you from finishing it in the other two (600 A.D. and 1,000 A.D.) Going from the most recent time period to the oldest allows you to complete it 3 times total.

So Near, Yet So Far: You can defeat Lavos at any time after you visit the End of Time. However, until you get through the plot proper, expect to get curbstomped. In a New Game+, this is taken Up to Eleven: you can fight Lavos from the very start, and defeating him at different points in the story gives you the various Multiple Endings.

Non-Indicative Name: The "Middle Ages" (600 A.D.) are in the middle of what, exactly? It falls between 12,000 B.C. and 1000 A.D., and, chronologically, is in the final 1% of the entire span of time seen in the game. The Dark Ages, at first. This is averted in the remake, which renames the era "Antiquity".

Weirdness Search and Rescue: When the party first winds up at the End of Time, an old man, who's really Gaspar, gives a basic explanation of the time travel system and later keeps track of what you are supposed to do. Conveniently, this is the first time the party has a chance to time travel freely, rather than being pushed into the gates by outside events.

Likewise played straight by Frog. Even after proudly stating, "Mine name is Glenn!", he goes right back to answering to Frog or whatever else the player has named him.

Sidequest
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_2af679a6
comment
Sidequest: Most notably, the one to resurrect the main character is entirely optional. Most of the game post-Zeal, even the Black Omen, can be considered a sidequest, since you can face the final boss very early in the game. That said, the sidequests are helpful for leveling your characters and getting their best weapons so you stand a chance of beating said boss on your first playthrough. And at the very least, none of them feel particularly pointless. The remake introduced the Lost Sanctum, two villages and two mountains full of Fetch Quests: Find an item, take it to the guy on top of the mountain, walk back down the mountain to the village. Now climb the mountain again to talk to the guy again to figure out what you need to fetch for him next. Get the item, climb to the top of the mountain, be told it's the wrong item, climb down the mountain. You spend as much time traveling through the same four or five screens as you do on the rest of the game's sidequests combined. At least the rewards are usually worth it.

Nobody Can Die: Toyed with, particularly in the scenes where you are chased by guards you cannot battle. Most humans will turn out to be monsters in disguise before you fight them. This becomes somewhat ironic in that major characters can die and many of the nonhuman enemies you are allowed to kill freely are shown to be sentient.

Awesome, but Impractical

The Master Mune Triple Tech requires your whole party to be at low HP to inflict maximum damage. What makes this technique the epitome of Awesome, but Impractical, however, is that the party required to use this technique is Marle, Robo, and Frog, meaning that if you can dish out maximum damage with this technique, Frog Squash is already primed to do the same, and the other two should be getting your party back on its feet.

Game-Breaking Bug: Not on any of the console versions, but when played on a emulator. Infamously, ZSNES, the most common SNES emulator, would assign the default keys for L, R and A in such a way that it not register with the computer when pressed together, effectively trapping the player in the first few domes. It's easily solvable, just reassign the keys appropriately, but, to this day, searching for this online yields a plethora of results.

Rubber-Band A.I.: Spekkio, who becomes more powerful when the lead party member's level reaches a level divisible by 10. Needless to say, you'll have a far better chance of beating him at levels 19, 29, 39, etc. than at 10/20/30.

Bonus Dungeon
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_34ffa400
comment
Pretty much everything about the cover, which was based on the beta version of the game, is wrong. A pink-garbed Marle is shooting a fireball (even though she has water-based powers) to complete the Arc Impulse triple tech with Crono (wearing a cape) and Frog against the Heckran (can't even be fought when Frog is in your party) in a snowfield (while the Heckran lives in a cave). A Bonus Dungeon in the remake allows you to legitimately do what the cover shows, because you go to another snowy mountain area, where a Heckran-like monster lives. However, it's a snowbeast, so using the Ice-elemental Arc Impulse on him is a hilariously bad idea.

Five-Second Foreshadowing When you first leave 2300 with Robo, the first time you've tried bringing four people through a Gate at once, it crackles ominously as it closes. Immediately thereafter, you find yourself shunted to the End of Time, where the Arbitrary Headcount Limit is explained. In the Ocean Palace, when Schala gets shocked by energy from the Mammon Machine, the Prophet shows concern for her, foreshadowing the reveal that he's actually Magus, AKA Janus, her brother.

And then it turns out he isn't the real Chancellor, but a disguised descendant of Yakra, the very first boss the heroes defeated to save Marle's ancestor, Queen Leene.

Schizo Tech: 1000 A.D. is the "modern world," with a mix of medieval and modern architecture: castle, modern military uniforms, refrigerators, and swords and guns together. On the outer edges of science and magic, there's even a robot and human cloning. The Successor of Guardia ending reveals that apparently, color film was already invented by 600 AD as that ending shows it being used to film Frog's wedding with Queen Leene. Additionally, the color film in 600 AD was able to survive 400 years without much wear and tear. There are guns found throughout time. There's even a "Ruby Gun" in 65,000,000 BC. There are also robot arms in this time period. From one walkthrough:

Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Initially this is played straight with Crono and Frog using swords, and Marle and Lucca using a crossbow and gun, respectively. Robo then mixes it up with his laser attacks, and then Ayla smashes this with her mighty fists. And Magus has fairly high physical attack power, but all of his Tech attacks are magical.

Bleak Level: The blue-tinted melancholy of 600 A.D.

This is a kingdom which is preparing to be snuffed out at any moment. The Future, particularly the basement of the ruined Proto Dome. There's something to be said for 12,000 B.C.'s frozen wasteland.

Optional Party Member: If you are completing the entire game normally for the first time, you can choose to not have the following party members: Magus, if you choose to fight him the second time. Crono, once he's killed by Lavos. Robo, once you let him stay behind in the Middle Ages to reforest the land. If you doing a 2nd quest or decide to extremely level up your characters, the above applies, and is required to achieve the various endings, depending on when you defeat Lavos.

The battle music slowly peters off and the party just stands there as if to say "Did that really just happen?"

Giant Wall of Watery Doom: Zeal's destruction in 12,000 BC causes a tsunami to flood most of the world. Only a few survivors remain, bridging the divide between the Earthbound Ones and the Enlightened Ones.

The Guards Must Be Crazy
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_4508b16b
comment
The Guards Must Be Crazy: The Guardia prison guards, big time. "Dangerous criminal on death row? No need to take away the dozen or so weapons that he's carrying." Dalton's guards strip you of all of your gear. For the extra layer of security, they divide it up and keep each stash under guard. Dalton is not as stupid as he looks. The sentry still falls for the oldest trick in the book, though:

Player Nudge
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_450a63b5
comment
Player Nudge: Just after getting Frog and going to storm the Fiendlord's Keep, Frog will ask if you're using magic, even if you didn't use it in battle, with the game throwing down a none-too-subtle hint that you should bring Frog to Spekkio to have Frog learn his own magic. Since the dungeon ahead requires exploiting elemental weaknesses, and Frog is a required member of your party until you clear it, you're going to need him to know those spells.

Treacherous Checkpoint
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_45534904
comment
Treacherous Checkpoint: The Abandoned Sewers is full of subterranean monsters who will attack the party if they make any sound. After avoiding various noise-making hazards, Crono and friends may gladly walk into a Save Point, which makes a characteristic "ding". It cause the monsters to "hear" it and rush out to attack. Once the monsters are defeated, however, it works as well as any other save point. In Fiendlord's Keep, falling through a trap door in one room will land you in a large cavern with four apparent save points, one in each of the four cardinal directions. One is a save point, a second is actually a teleporter that will take you to the room you fell from, and the other two trigger battles with multiple fake save points. These switch around every time you fall into the room.Hint The two fake save points are always opposite each other, and the teleporter is always opposite the real save point.

What Does This Button Do?

comment
What Does This Button Do?: Marle says this exact phrase when the party is at Arris Dome's supercomputer in the Bad Future looking for a way back to their home timeline. Pressing the button brings up a recording of the Day of Lavos. This is invoked in order to shoot down the Blackbird in one shot with the new-and-improved Epoch.

Artifact Mook: During the Rainbow Shell quest, it seems really strange to be fighting Nagas and Vipers, enemies that appeared in the 600 A.D. Cathedral at the very beginning of the game. That is until you fight the boss, Yakra XIII, who is the descendant of the boss of the Cathedral. Giant's Claw, the area where you find the Rainbow Shell, has enemies otherwise seen only in the prehistoric era. Like the above, this is because the area is the ruins of the Tyranno Lair.

Temporal Paradox: One briefly causes Marle to disappear early in the game. And, according to Chrono Cross, the heroes create one when they defeat Lavos. Outside of the storyline, abusing the past/future mechanics to do the same event multiple times (take an item, beat the Omen) is also a paradox, since the first instance is now no longer possible in linear time.

Redundant Researcher: Toma makes himself redundant due to the heroes' temporal shenanigans. He's looking for the Rainbow Shell, as are the party, and he's the one who actually finds out where it's located. However, he dies before he can retrieve it. When the party pours a bottle of spirit on his tombstone in 1000 AD, his ghost tells them where the Shell is, and they are the ones who retrieve it, thanks to his information.

Worst of all, it's part of its reproductive cycle, so your planet wasn't the first and likely won't be the last. Fortunately, this is a JRPG. It stands no chance against a ragtag bunch of time traveling teens with attitude.

Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: The original English script gave Frog an accent like this, even moreso than other characters in his era. Oddly enough, Frog talks normally in the flashback scenes to the time before his transformation. The Japanese version did not have this, and the remake, which featured a new translation, did not retain it. However, Frog still sounds more formal than he did in the Japanese version, like nearly everyone from the Middle Ages.

Fan Sequel: Chrono Resurrection was a fan-made project to remake key parts of Chrono Trigger as a Nintendo 64 Tech Demo Game with awesome 3D graphics and remastered music. However, near the end of 2004, they received a Cease and Desist from Square Enix, and were forced to drop the project. Crimson Echoes, a Fan Sequel, was due to be released at the end of May 2009, but now that's gone too.

All the Worlds Are a Stage: Lavos's first form is battled on a weird rippling blue surface, while his final form is confronted on a trippy hyperspace-like background that has terrain from past levels randomly appear on it.

Fantastic Racism: There are hints of it between the humans and the fiends (intelligent monsters). Darkly justified; in the Manolia Cathedral in 600 A.D, you can find a non-hostile Naga whose one line is to burp loudly and comment on how the remaining human prisoners in the room with her look very tasty. The Enlightened Ones of Zeal literally look down on the Earthbound Ones, who can't use magic and live in the Ice Age below them. When the party meet them, one is surprised by Crono's magical gift and pities how primitive it has to be.

Disc-One Nuke: The original game freely gave you them if you were just willing to grind for it. Right from the start, Crono can buy a Silver Sword from Melchior — the best available sword for the first three story arcs. And right after that, when you arrive in Medina Village, there are overpriced items that are strong enough to take on the end boss of the game. Usually, you wouldn't be able to afford it, but enemies in the Abandoned Sewers of 2300 AD drop obscene amounts of money. The Ice Water double tech (Marle + Frog) can wipe out most mobs of enemies in Magus' Castle in a single casting, and for a paltry MP cost. In fact, several of the basic double techs remain useful well into the endgame. Items formerly unavailable until the endgame can be earned in the DS exclusive Arena of the Ages if you're patient enough.

Save Scumming
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_5cfeb43f
comment
Saving Lucca's mother. Without Save Scumming, you only get one shot at doing this, and the moment in question comes after a very lengthy cutscene, which means retries will take a lot of time. Figuring out what to do, entering her name ("Lara"), is hinted at in another room in the house, but you probably won't enter that room first before setting off the time-limited cutscene. How you enter that code also requires thinking outside the box; after hitting A to continue past the "Enter password" script, you actually enter the buttons L-A-R-A, each key followed by a chime sound. What can make this potentially worse, however, is the fact that this uses shoulder buttons, which are hardly used in the game at all. So this may be a great source of confusion and failure if your system has defective shoulder buttons, faults which would not be noticed while playing Chrono Trigger. This can also be even more confusing for the PlayStation version, which requires the input L1-Circle-R1-Circle.

Triumphant Reprise: A strange example in that the song itself isn't any different, just use differently. When you first travel to Antiquity, the ice-covered ground is without a BGM, while the floating kingdom of Zeal has a beautiful and mystical theme, symbolizing the divide between the people who live above and below. Much later, after Zeal is destroyed and the once-Enlightened Ones forced to live on the surface with the Earthbound ones, the theme is played almost continuously, symbolizing the newfound unity between the two peoples.

There are hints of it between the humans and the fiends (intelligent monsters). Darkly justified; in the Manolia Cathedral in 600 A.D, you can find a non-hostile Naga whose one line is to burp loudly and comment on how the remaining human prisoners in the room with her look very tasty.

comment
Inexplicable Treasure Chests: Actually justified, for once; like the Sun Stone and Forest Ruins, the black sigil boxes were scattered over the globe when Zeal fell in 12,000 BC, gradually re-surfacing over the eons. In some cases, NPCs comment that the boxes have been passed down for generations and no one has been able to open them.

Ninja Prop: You can sneak through a section of the Abandoned Sewers, which is full of monsters, as long as you don't make any noise. This includes touching the save point, as the little chime that sounds will also get their attention.

Fighting Lavos at the Ocean Palace. It's technically not a hopeless fight, just incredibly difficult. The story dictates that you lose this fight, and Lavos has higher stats than normal in this encounter just to make sure, but if your stats are high enough, you can actually win, which will earn you the hardest ending — a visit to the Developer's Room.note This ending can also happen if you beat Lavos before you ever go back in time, thus being a Duel Boss between Crono and Lavos; it requires you to be on New Game+ to even try though, much less win.

comment
Gameplay and Story Segregation: When running around the Blackbird, special care must be taken to not be noticed, or you'll be captured and thrown back to your cell. If you have Ayla in your party, she will be able to engage in battle, although she is the only one able to do so. This is in spite of your characters' ability to cast magic, or in Robo's case, use his inbuilt laser cannons. During the "Day Of Lavos" footage you see, he launches a bunch of spines in the air, which alone is enough to reduce most of the domed cities to ruins and leads to the end of civilization. When you actually go to 1999 to fight him, he does have a "rain of quills" attack which hits the whole party, but is obviously way weaker than whatever he used in the video. It's possible he's using a weaker version of the same attack, but that just raises the question of he doesn't just use his world-wrecking rain of spines and take out the entire party instantly.

Plot Hole
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_6331ba26
comment
Plot Hole: Marle's disappearance in 600 AD is the big fat headscratcher. This is the sole occasion that a wholesale reality rewrite happens in front of the protagonists before the triggering event even occurs. In every other occasion, anyone who's traveled through time remembers both the world before and after, and the changes don't appear until the trigger has occurred and the new future is visited. Characters will reference seeing a door at the end of the sewer level in 2300 AD. This dungeon is not only completely optional, but no one even suggests that you should go there. In New Game+, the characters will make their usual statements upon fighting Lavos...even if it's early enough that they shouldn't know what it is yet.

Permanently Missable Content: Averted in the long run. Although the examples below show loot being unobtainable during a single playthrough, New Game+ allows you to attempt to get these items an unlimited amount of times: If you're going for the upgraded items in the sealed chests, it's a bad idea to loot them right away. Certain items, like the best elemental absorb armors, can only be acquired by charming. If you forgot to charm their holder, you can forget about them for that playthrough.

Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Slight amusement can be found in naming Marle, Frog, Robo, and Magus their real names, once you've played through the game and know what they are.note Although you don't get the opportunity to name that last guy until after you find out their true identity. The remake allows six-letter names for characters, as memory issues limited the original to five letters, allowing the player to name Crono as he was intended in the Japanese version ("Chrono").

comment
Loyalty Mission: Frog gets this twice: He first joins Crono and Lucca as a Guest-Star Party Member to rescue Queen Leene, but then retreats to the Cursed Woods because he failed to prevent her from being kidnapped in the first place. Fetching the Hero Medal and reforging the Masamune snaps him out of his funk and gets him to join the party permanently. Much later, freeing the ghost of his old friend Cyrus from its torment gives Frog additional closure and, incidentally, the Masamune a much-needed power boost. Robo gets two: The first is a last-second surprise, as it starts out as an unrelated sidequest to restore a forest. However, it turns out that such a restoration is a job that will take many centuries. Thus, Robo stays behind to see it done. When you meet him again, he's gained quite a new perspective on life. The second is in 2300 AD, where you go to the Geno Dome. Here, Robo learns his real origins and the purpose for which he was made, but chooses to side with his human friends and defeat his creator.

Meaningful Name
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: Magus's real name, Janus, comes from the two-faced Roman god of gates and doors, and indicated transition. Magus has mystical connotations, and is the singular form for the three Magi that visited Jesus in Christian mythology who, in another case of Woolsey's influence, are named Balthazar, Melchior, and Gaspar. Magus's two Japanese names keep this trend. Janus's Japanese name is Jaki, which basically refers to an evil imp, or small demon, and his title is Maou, which basically means "Demon King". Queen Zeal. The people of Zeal named their power extractor the Mammon Machine. The Hero of a time traveling plot is named Chrono (or Crono), which literally means "time." Frog's original name was Glenn, and is referred to as "Grenn" in promotional materials. 'Grenn' is short for the French word for frog "grenouille". Toma, the pair of adventurers who the party run into in 600 and 1000, are part of a long line of Tomas, and supposedly they all look exactly the same. (One shows up in Chrono Cross as well.) The name is derived from T'om'a, an Aramaic term meaning 'twin'.

Guide Dang It!
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_6ec989d8
comment
Guide Dang It!: Touch, but do not open, a sealed chest in 600 A.D. before going to the same chest in 1000 A.D. to find an upgraded version of the item you'd find otherwise. A great trick the game only hints at by saying, "The item is reacting to the pendant" if you approach it in the Middle Ages, when the obvious course of action is to open the 1000 A.D. chest first and then go back to 600 A.D. Since not all sealed chests are upgradable, you may already think you won't be given a confirmation as to whether or not to open the chest at all. Worst of all, one of the upgraded chests contains Marle's ultimate weapon. Saving Lucca's mother. Without Save Scumming, you only get one shot at doing this, and the moment in question comes after a very lengthy cutscene, which means retries will take a lot of time. Figuring out what to do, entering her name ("Lara"), is hinted at in another room in the house, but you probably won't enter that room first before setting off the time-limited cutscene. How you enter that code also requires thinking outside the box; after hitting A to continue past the "Enter password" script, you actually enter the buttons L-A-R-A, each key followed by a chime sound. What can make this potentially worse, however, is the fact that this uses shoulder buttons, which are hardly used in the game at all. So this may be a great source of confusion and failure if your system has defective shoulder buttons, faults which would not be noticed while playing Chrono Trigger. This can also be even more confusing for the PlayStation version, which requires the input L1-Circle-R1-Circle. Getting the Golden Gemstone accessory requires you to complete the Hero's Grave sidequest. Then you have to put Frog in the lead position and travel to the long-since completed Denadoro Mountains until you encounter the Freelancer who throws rocks at you. Your hints at this from NPCs or elsewhere? Zero. In order to acquire the Silver Gemstone, you have to return to the Laruba Ruins after defeating Giga Gaia at the Mountain of Woe. Here, you'll find a Nu who has it. The Nu also allows you to change the names of the characters. The Memory Lane ending. Nearly all of the Multiple Endings accessible in a New Game+ playthrough are reached by defeating Lavos during relatively broad "windows," such as "after defeating Boss A, but before defeating Boss B." However, this particular ending can only be viewed by defeating Lavos after witnessing Schala open the door to the throne room, but before taking the party's pendant to the Mammon Machine — the latter action is normally done immediately after the former, and it's extremely unlikely that the idea of "I think I'll backtrack out of here and defeat Lavos right this moment" would naturally occur to anyone in the absence of a guide.

Zero-Effort Boss: The Golem Overlord doesn't even attack. It just counts down from 5 to 1, at which point it does nothing. It complains about being afraid of heights, so if the player doesn't attack, it eventually runs away. You can't really lose, but if you don't beat the boss before it runs, you miss out on some free EXP.

Marathon Boss: If the player doesn't opt to ram the Epoch through the outer shell, facing Lavos head-on via traveling to the Day of Lavos results in him fighting with the patterns and stats of a large number of bosses from across the game, to the point that the player's allowed to switch party members between each fight just because of its sheer length. The actual Final Boss battles with Lavos don't last anywhere near as long usually.

Covers Always Lie
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_7315fd38
comment
Covers Always Lie: Pretty much everything about the cover, which was based on the beta version of the game, is wrong. A pink-garbed Marle is shooting a fireball (even though she has water-based powers) to complete the Arc Impulse triple tech with Crono (wearing a cape) and Frog against the Heckran (can't even be fought when Frog is in your party) in a snowfield (while the Heckran lives in a cave). A Bonus Dungeon in the remake allows you to legitimately do what the cover shows, because you go to another snowy mountain area, where a Heckran-like monster lives. However, it's a snowbeast, so using the Ice-elemental Arc Impulse on him is a hilariously bad idea. One of the scenes depicted in the manual (Crono sleeping, Frog tripping, Lucca repairing Robo, and Marle bringing tea) happens in The Oath ending, which is non-canon. Ayla is often seen with a large wooden club in her artwork even though she never uses such a weapon in-game. In fact, she uses no weapons except her fists.

San Dimas Time: Your adventures in the past seem to have a checkpoint system — you can go back to 65,000,000 BC/12000 BC/600 AD, yes, but you won't have to do anything more than once. Also, there are a few instances where one can tell that time took place while you weren't a specific time period; for instance, the Broken Bridge in 600 AD gets fixed "while" you're having adventures in 1000 AD and 2300 AD.

Fetch Quest

comment
The remake introduced the Lost Sanctum, two villages and two mountains full of Fetch Quests: Find an item, take it to the guy on top of the mountain, walk back down the mountain to the village. Now climb the mountain again to talk to the guy again to figure out what you need to fetch for him next. Get the item, climb to the top of the mountain, be told it's the wrong item, climb down the mountain. You spend as much time traveling through the same four or five screens as you do on the rest of the game's sidequests combined. At least the rewards are usually worth it.

Snowball Lie: Tata uncovered the Hero's Badge and began wearing it around town. All of a sudden, everyone's hailing him as the hero who will win the war against Magus and shoving him in front of the sick King, who implores him to go find the Holy Sword of legend. Not helping matters is his father, who soaks up all the credit for "raising a hero". Tata finally gives him an earful once the truth is out.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: After defeating Yakra, the Chancellor in 600 AD insists on creating a criminal justice system after his kidnapping to deter criminal and monster activity. By 1000 AD, the system has been corrupted into a star chamber under the Chancellor of the time, thus causing major trouble between the kingdom and the heroes until it revealed that the Chancellor is fake and is actually Yakra XIII, a descendant of the original Yakra, in disguise. Upon discovering a video in 2300 A.D. that shows how the world ended in 1999, the party decides to save the future. This caused several events to go downhill. Subverted by the heroes when they invade the Fiendlord's Keep in an attempt to stop Magus from creating Lavos. After defeating him, they learn that Magus only summoned Lavos in an attempt to destroy him. Lavos then wakes up, and causes Magus and the heroes to be sucked into a giant Time Gate. Magus curses Crono and company for interfering, but it's heavily implied that in the original timeline that Lavos destroyed Magus. The heroes' interference actually saves Magus from being killed. Ayla heads to the secret Laruba Village to gather reinforcements, but the Reptites follow her there, setting fire to the whole village. Ayla vows to make amends. In the original timeline, Zeal and its Queen were destroyed by Lavos. Thanks to the heroes' actions, the Queen survives and the Ocean Palace becomes the Black Omen, a monstrous floating labyrinth that simply sits over the entire world.

Background Music Override
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_80f38afe
comment
Background Music Override: After seeing the video of the Day of Lavos, the titular track plays as the heroes decide to change the future and bring down Lavos, with the heroic track continuing to play until the basement has been left. There's a section of the Fiendlord's Keep where the normal battle music is overriden by the minimalist dungeon music, and nearly every sound has an echo effect added to it. The Ocean Palace dungeon is probably one of the most memorable instances of this. The game double dips by replaying the Ocean Palace BGM during King Guardia XXXIII's trial, adding a sense of urgency to Marle's efforts to clear him. Giant's Claw does it as well. Bring Magus to the boss battle against Zeal; he'll banter with Zeal for a bit before the fight, where his theme replaces the more bombastic Boss Battle 2 theme. The heartbeat inside of Lavos overrides even the party switching menu's music.

Puzzle Boss: The Son of Sun requires the player to attack one of five fireballs to actually damage the boss. Which fireball is the correct one changes constantly. However, a Red Mail is a game breaker for this boss; the Son of Sun and his cronies can only deal fire damage, so equipping a character with the armor that absorbs fire-elemental attacks turns the boss from "frustratingly hard" to tedious. Ozzie is a rather pathetic version. Defeating him both times requires flipping a switch behind him.

What Happened to the Mouse?: Whatever happened to Schala? Radical Dreamers was conceived to rectify this. Due to Masato Kato not being satisfied with it and the short amount of time it took to develop it, the Mind Screw that was Chrono Cross was created, with her playing and even larger role in it than in Radical Dreamers. What happened to the Lost Sanctum and the Reptite survivors after 600 AD? Dalton just kind of disappears in the original version of the game with no further mention of him after his final boss fight. The remake eventually has him come back in one of the Dimensional Vortexes in order to provide a bit of an explanation as to his eventual fate.

Doing In the Wizard: As one might expect from a JRPG, there's magic abilities involved. As one likely would not expect, this actually has an entirely non-supernatural reason in-universe, namely that Lavos' secondhand contact with humanity resulted in latent mutation that awakened this potential within mankind as a whole. This, incidentally, is why Ayla can't use magic: she was born before Lavos crashed down.

Spell My Name with an "S": Chrono/Crono. In the original English translation, the Tent of Horrors' first minigame's first knight was mistakenly localized as "Vicks" instead of "Biggs", making the intended Star Wars reference more vague. Additionally, the French translation named Piett "Pietr".

Joke Item: The Mop, which is acquired by charming a Nu. It's a weapon for Crono with an attack rating of 1, which is lower than his starting weapon. There's no trick to getting good damage out of it and it doesn't unlock any secret techs or quests. It's just a mop.

comment
Sufficiently Advanced Bamboo Technology: The technology of 65,000,000 is in many cases more advanced than that of 2300. Elixir (called "Sweet Water" in this time) can be had for the asking, they can make powerful robot arms out of stone and awe-inspiring guns and armor from rubies, and Dreamstone is common enough to win in a drinking contest. And none of this is magical, since magic doesn't exist yet. The net result is a sort of Garden of Eden, where Stone Age crafts have the power of futuristic technology and Magitek.

Skippable Boss: After the Fall of Zeal, the battle against Magus on North Cape can be skipped. When the boss asks if you want to fight, replying "No" will have the party leader remark that it won't solve anything right now. The Boss Rush that begins the Final Boss battle against Lavos can be skipped by crashing into its outer shell with the Epoch. However, doing this destroys the Epoch and prevents you from going back, making it a Point of No Return.

Timey-Wimey Ball: Explored here. In essence, the article concludes that there are several points in the game where the established laws of time travel in the game's universe have to be bent or broken for events to proceed as they do. One significant instance occurs early in the story, where Marle accidentally erases herself from existence just by showing up in the past. After Lucca and Crono set things right again, the entire concept of time travel being that precarious is completely jettisoned for the rest of the game.

 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_8d25533e
comment
Your Size May Vary: When you fight Lavos, he takes up about half the screen and seems to be about as large as a big house, certainly small enough to fit inside the Mammon Machine room at the Ocean Palace. However, his appearance in the Day of Lavos recording and the cutscene prior to his fight display a city-sized Lavos splitting the earth. He left a small-continent sized crater after crashing on earth in Prehistory. The upgraded Epoch, which is almost as large as Lavos's battle sprite. may be crash landed through its shell inside of him. Its insides sprawl at least over four screen heights, certainly larger than Leene's Square. And his first of two final forms is also about as large as he is on the outside.

Non Standard Game Over: "BUT... THE FUTURE REFUSED TO CHANGE."◊ If the party is defeated by Magus in Fiendlord's Keep, he'll turns around nonchalantly and finishes his summon of Lavos. To a lesser extent, losing to Queen Zeal has the camera pan over to your fallen party with the song "The Day the World Revived" playing before fading away.

Briefly happens to Marle by way of the Grandfather Paradox in the first part of the game: She happened to land at the point where her ancestor Queen Leene had been kidnapped. Because Marle looks so much like her ancestor, everyone mistook her for their queen and called the search off, leading to Marle being erased out of existence shortly after her reunion with Crono. Fortunately, the queen had not been killed yet, so Crono, Lucca and Frog managed to save her and return Marle to existence.

All Cavemen Were Neanderthals: Subverted. While the people in prehistory are rather simple-minded compared to later time periods, they aren't stupid or completely primitive; they're already showing the signs of a somewhat early form of currency and trade, for starters. Ayla in particular exemplifies the "simple but not stupid" statement above. Not to mention that the weapons and armor you can buy from them are stronger than the armor you come in with.

Set Right What Once Went Wrong
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_93ed8515
comment
Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Crono sets to prevent the assassination of Queen Leene before Marle's wiped from existence. This one's a two-parter: In the middle ages, the great forest in South Zenan was destroyed by Magus' army. Fiona pledged to carry on during her husband, Marco's, absence in the war and regrow the forest by hand; however, she died before she could complete her mission and the wasteland continued to grow. In the original timeline, this was foreordained, but if Fiona's ancestor was convinced to keep a plant in 12,000 BC, the true cause of the desertification is revealed. After killing the fiend who was causing the Sunken Desert to form, Robo offers to stay behind in the past and tend to the fields, pointing out that the party can easily pop back to the present and pick him up. In the new present, the forest has overtaken the desert completely, and a shrine stands in tribute to Fiona and Robo's sacrifice. As promised, the rusty robot is waiting to be reactivated on an altar. In return for this, the Planet creates a special portal for Lucca, which leads into the next event... Lucca was indirectly responsible for her mother, Lara's, paralysis as she could not figure out how to shut off her father's machine in time. To atone for her failure, Lucca became a mechanics expert; Lara remained bitter over the incident and her daughter and husband's obsession with "silly machines." Lucca can give her younger self a boost by entering the passcode to stop the treadmill, saving her mother and allowing her to walk, while young Lucca decides to study machines to prevent further accidents. In the Moonlight Festival epilogue, Lara invites Taban to dance. Although the humans eventually drove back Magus' horde, relations between the two clans remain frosty, and a growing number of fiends are still worshiping the memory of their dear leader. After the party takes Magus out, Ozzie becomes the new leader; killing him removes all lingering influence over Medina. Fiends are no longer hostile to humans and the store prices have dropped to sane levels at last. Lavos' final defeat saves the future and averts the robot apocalypse. This is confirmed in The Legendary Hero ending with Robo and Atropos sitting in a futuristic Leene Square.

Redundant Rescue: Depending on how you play it, Lucca showing up to bust Crono out of prison is either a Big Damn Heroes moment or this.

Behind the Black: An early puzzle involving spikes; the characters would've easily been able to see a way around. In the Ozzie's Fort sidequest, it's near impossible to see Magus's equipment room, even though your party still can see it.

Loads and Loads of Loading: For whatever reason, instead of just using a text dump of the English localization, the PlayStation port instead stacks a real time translation software on top of it, taxing the system's RAM more than it has to and drastically increasing the loading as a result.

Alternate World Map: Drastic changes in continent arrangement take place over mere thousands of years. Not too surprising, considering the Eldritch Abomination lurking underground causing all kinds of earthquakes, Floating Continents that come crashing down, and an apocalyptic event that encases the world in continuous winter for centuries after. The only time periods that don't involve some kind of major cataclysm between them — 600 to 1000 to 1999 — all share the same continental layout.

The Son of Sun requires the player to attack one of five fireballs to actually damage the boss. Which fireball is the correct one changes constantly. However, a Red Mail is a game breaker for this boss; the Son of Sun and his cronies can only deal fire damage, so equipping a character with the armor that absorbs fire-elemental attacks turns the boss from "frustratingly hard" to tedious.

Interface Spoiler: It's a very minor spoiler, but after rushing after Marle when she disappears in Lucca's teleportation device, Crono unknowingly ends up traveling through time to the past. While you have no idea where you are until you speak to a few NPCs, saving the game at this point will give you the chapter title "The Middle Ages". In the SNES version, Magus' name is not spelled in all-caps like other NPCs during one of Frog's flashbacks. This is a very subtle clue that he is recruitable later on. Additionally, after the Kingdom of Zeal crash lands, you gain access to a dealer who sells scythes among other things. Scythes are the Weapon of Choice for Magus, who can join your team shortly after.

Foreshadowing: The attractions of the Millenial Fair are based on areas of the game the player will eventually get to, starting with Leene's Bell, constructed in 600 AD. Gato has a passing resemblance to the R-Series robots from 2300 AD; and the tribal dance shares similarities with the setting of 65,000,000 BC. There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in the second visit to 65,000,000 BC: when going to hitch a ride from the Dactyls at Dactyl Nest, you can see a distant, red twinkle in the sky. This is Lavos, approaching the planet.

There are a few other points along the timeline when Lavos is awakened prematurely, and he is not happy about it.

The Abandoned Sewers is full of subterranean monsters who will attack the party if they make any sound. After avoiding various noise-making hazards, Crono and friends may gladly walk into a Save Point, which makes a characteristic "ding". It cause the monsters to "hear" it and rush out to attack. Once the monsters are defeated, however, it works as well as any other save point.

Game-Favored Gender: The ladies get the Prismatic Dress, which reduces all magic damage by 1/3. In the remake, the ladies also get the Angel's Tiara, which grants Auto Haste and total status immunity, and Lucca gets the Elemental Aegis, which makes her completely immune to magic.

In Fiendlord's Keep, falling through a trap door in one room will land you in a large cavern with four apparent save points, one in each of the four cardinal directions. One is a save point, a second is actually a teleporter that will take you to the room you fell from, and the other two trigger battles with multiple fake save points. These switch around every time you fall into the room.Hint The two fake save points are always opposite each other, and the teleporter is always opposite the real save point.

Karma Houdini: Considering all the headaches he causes, the fact that Dalton just sort of runs away following his last boss fight and faces no comeuppance for his role in the game's events is something of a letdown. It's even worse in the remake when it's revealed that he runs off to Porre and helps turn them into an advanced military nation that eventually conquers Guardia, the homeland of Crono, Marle, and Lucca.

Preexisting Encounters: The Trope Codifier for JRPGs. All the encounters are pre-scripted and appear at the same point and with the same enemies every playthrough, and many are also avoidable and allow you to see their contents beforehand. On the other hand, quite a few battles are unavoidable ambushes set at fixed points, which respawn every time you change "screens". Some rare enemies only appear at random, although it's still your choice to fight them or not.

Soundtrack Dissonance: The music that plays at the end of the trial is the same whether you are sentenced to death or simply three days in jail. In the first case, the music fits, but in the second case it just comes off as overdramatic since the Chancellor doesn't falsely have the sentence changed to death until after the music starts.

Disaster Democracy: Monarchy in this case, as with Zeal blown to bits and 90% of the planet's surface now underwater, the surviving Enlightened Ones have no choice but to throw in with the Earthbound Ones, who know better how to survive in the icy climate. The propagation of the races ends up diluting man's ability to wield magic, but at least their moral sense has changed for the better.

However, Lucca is seen inventing different types of offensive weapons, hypnotic devices, and an item capable of controlling tears in the fabric of time. Meanwhile, Taban develops increasingly effective suits of body armor for his daughter to use. In the original translation, they do still have a reputation but it's not as bad.

Always Close: Happens quite a few times. No matter how long you take getting there, you always get to Magus's inner sanctum just before he completes the ritual to summon Lavos. Regardless of your expedition through the Ocean Palace, you'll arrive just before the Mammon Machine is overloaded (though throwing the Ruby Knife into it probably doesn't help things). And trying to get the evidence to save Marle's father will always involve breaking in just before the King is dragged away to jail.

Remixed Level: When you last leave the Tyranno Lair, it's reduced to a smoldering crater that is visible from space. Lavos' impact buries the castle underground, where it eventually becomes accessible again in 600 AD. It's actually more of a merging of the trap-filled caves of the Reptite Lair and the prison/throne room associated with Azala; the outdoor areas of Tyranno Lair were obliterated. The Ocean Palace is seemingly nuked by Lavos, but is quickly transmogrified into the Black Omen.

The Dragon Tank is fought on the connecting bridge between Guardia Castle and the prison tower. When the tank explodes, the Chancellor rushes in to make repairs, but ends up on hanging for dear life when the bridge collapses:

Good Morning, Crono
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_b4cbb37f
comment
Good Morning, Crono: The trope namer is one of the opening lines in the initial translation of the game, where Crono's mom wakes him up to go to the Millennial Fair. Later, Crono has a bizarre dream where the exact scenario plays out with the Mysterious Waif instead of momma. And when you finish the game normally, this is again replayed, but this time with a soldier waking him up. Oddly, advertisements for the remake referenced the line verbatim, even though the actual phrase isn't used in the retranslation.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: After Crono, Marle, and Lucca jump into the 2300 A.D. portal when Crono escapes from jail, the guards seem to forget about them, as later you can go to Guardia Castle and nobody will attempt arresting Crono. This is before the Chancellor is discovered to be Yakra's descendant, which makes it more strange. This is addressed in the game. If you talk to the soldiers and other people in the castle after they stop chasing you out,note Which happens around the time you can open the sealed chests. Marle must be in your party the first time. they'll say that the king pardoned Crono after being pleaded to by Pierre, and that only the Chancellor really believes Crono is guilty to begin with.

Heads I Win, Tails You Lose
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_b4fae672
comment
Heads I Win, Tails You Lose: The fight against the first Golem cuts you a little slack. The battle can be tough if you don't know what you're doing, but even without grinding, it's not a Hopeless Boss Fight. However, since the plot requires that you be captured at the end of the sequence anyway, you won't be given a game over for losing. If you win, the game won't quite declare that The Battle Didn't Count, as the Golem stays dead, but all that changes plotwise is that Dalton takes you out with his Cutscene Power to the Max instead. So ultimately, the only real difference between victory and defeat is some EXP.

Gave Up Too Soon: In the Reunion ending, Marle desperately fails to convince anyone to join her in saving Crono while they all return to their eras. Disappointed, she returns home with Lucca. The camera pans back to Gaspar, who notices that everyone had left while he was recovering the Chrono Trigger. It all works out though, because the party tracks Gaspar down.

Amoral Attorney: The Chancellor functions as one: bribing witnesses, twisting the facts, summarily executing people who are found not guilty, etc. Pierre, the actual lawyer, is the one trying to help you. It makes more sense when you realize that it isn't actually the Chancellor; it's Yakra posing as the Chancellor.

Lost in Translation: Jaki becoming Janus, Jiru becoming Zeal, and Silvard becoming Epoch creates allusions to Classical Mythology, zealotry, and time, not present in the original names. Magus conveys a powerful wizard, but loses the meaning of Demon King, or Maō. Ozzie, Slash and Flea lose their condiment Theme Naming of Vinegar, Soy Sauce and Mayonnaise. The three Gurus lose their Onomatopoeia theme naming of Gash, Hash and Bosch.

Crono is brought before King Guardia XXXIII, with Marle begging for her boyfriend's life...only for the King to reveal he knows all about what's happened. Various Character Witnesses from across time appear to vouch for your story, and Lucca then presents herself brandishing the Gate Key. The King tells you that instead of being executed, he's going to throw you a grand parade on the last night of the Millennial Fair.

comment
During the "Day Of Lavos" footage you see, he launches a bunch of spines in the air, which alone is enough to reduce most of the domed cities to ruins and leads to the end of civilization. When you actually go to 1999 to fight him, he does have a "rain of quills" attack which hits the whole party, but is obviously way weaker than whatever he used in the video. It's possible he's using a weaker version of the same attack, but that just raises the question of he doesn't just use his world-wrecking rain of spines and take out the entire party instantly.

comment
Cutscene Incompetence: In the prehistoric era, the party is "hopelessly outnumbered" by eight Reptites, even though they'd just defeated five of them moments before. When the party gets captured by Dalton. When the party lets Dalton take Schala after he threatens that her life means nothing to him. He obviously wouldn't kill her, since the Queen would kill him if he did so, since Schala is the only one who can control the Mammon Machine.

Final Boss Preview: On top of the fight with Lavos at the Ocean Palace, the remake has a potential Final Boss Preview for Chrono Cross with the Dream Devourer, the precursor to the Time Devourer.

Broken Bridge: Aside from the literal case of Zenan Bridge in 600 AD, trying to cross Site 32 before investigating Arris Dome will trigger a never-ending loop of Random Encounters until you give up and go somewhere else. The unforgiving winds on Death Peak.

Campfire Character Exploration: During the Fiona's Forest sidequest, leaving Robo in the past to plant a forest ends with the party around a campfire. There's little they talk about, but it ends up with Lucca discovering a gate to the past to the day her mother lost her legs. If the player is quick enough, Lucca can save her mother, restoring her legs in the present. Robo then comes up to her and comforts her whether or not she succeeded, and gives her an item he made.

Idle Animation: The party does this when they don't move around on the overworld. Crono waves his hands as if trying to get your attention. Lucca sits down and reads a book. Marle just sits down. Robo seems to power down, Frog inflates his throat repeatedly and Ayla dances. Magus poses with his head to the side.

The Dulcinea Effect: When Marle's sucked into the time portal at the beginning, Crono jumps in headfirst to save her even though they only met a few minutes before, though this is more due to Crono's inherent heroism than anything she'd said or done.

Shout-Out
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Ayla, the cavewoman, is named after the heroine from Clan of the Cave Bear, who is also a cavewoman. In the English translation, Magus' henchmen, the Quirky Miniboss Squad consisting of Ozzie, Flea, and Slash, reference the rockers John "Ozzy" Osbourne, most famously of Black Sabbath, Michael "Flea" Balzary, most famously of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Saul "Slash" Hudson of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver. The NPC who tells you about them goes so far as to say that "they're tone-deaf, evil fiends!" Since Akira Toriyama did the character designs, Crono looks like Goku,note He wears a crown straight out of Dragon Quest in the one of the animated cutscenes in the Beyone Time ending, Marle wears one of Bulma's early outfits, Ayla looks like Bad Launch, and Lucca looks like Arale from Doctor Slump. Listen to the music played during the trial scenes. Then, listen to "The Trial" by Pink Floyd. Robo's theme sounds a lot like a certain song re-popularized on the internet.note According to Yasunori Mitsuda, though, this one is just a coincidence. Lavos' second form is likely a shout out to the Guyver series or the Super Sentai series. Not only does he look a lot like a Guyver, his chest blaster attack also requires him to literally open his chest to shoot the beam, much like mega smasher from the Guyver series, and it also happens to be his strongest attack. His second form also bears a striking resemblance to Imperfect Cell. A minigame at the Millennial Fair can spawn the NPCs Biggs, Wedge and Piett. If you are playing the SNES version of the Rainbow Shell sidequest, when Marle and the others head down to the Guardia Castle basement, the snakes are named Dumb and Dumber. The Knights of the Square Table are simultaneously a nod to Arthurian legend and to the game's development company. Tata, the would-be Kid Hero in the middle ages, looks like a hero from in a Dragon Quest game, another franchise Toriyama did art designs for. His role derives from the Erdrick trilogy with the Hero's Badge mimicking the Erdrick Seal, and his "quest" to defeat Magus parallels with the Edrick's quest to slay Baramos (and later Zoma). His idle sprite even walks perpetually in place like the sprites from the earlier Dragon Quest games did, when no other sprite in-game does this. Robo is almost certainly based on Tik-Tok from Return to Oz. Two rooms in the Fiendlord's Keep are obvious references to Donkey Kong, with a side view (instead of the top-down view used in the rest of the game) of platforms which Roly enemies roll down, and broken ladders you can use to avoid them. The name of the save point after fighting Magus is named, "Forward to the Past". Mother Brain. The monster musician in Porre 1000 AD claims to be the piano man. In the Memory Lane ending, Lucca remarks "Theeeeeeeeere's Johnny!" upon seeing the racer cyborg from 2300 AD. After the Reptites are defeated, one of the Ioka villagers' reactions includes the phrase, "Happy happy joy joy."

Metal Slime: The Rubble enemies found at the Mountain of Woe, which pose minimal danger to your party and yield a large amount of Tech Points. The only problem is they have obscenely high evade stats, and will always lock out all of your abilities other than regular attacks. This makes it infinitely more likely that you'll miss for five or so turns until they run away. The Wonder Rock gives 10,000 EXP and drops the Lumicite Shard, which is needed to make the Elemental Aegis for Lucca. However, it has several thousand HP, it will counter every attack with a powerful eruption, and of course, it will run away if you're not careful.

Video Game Caring Potential: There's a poor lost kitten separated from its sad little girl of an owner. When Crono is breaking out of Guardia Castle's prison, he stumbles on a man named Fritz who is stuck in a guillotinenote This takes more legwork if he doesn't use Lucca's help. Freeing him will see him repay you later once he's returned to his family-run store in Truce.

"Test Your Strength" Game: There's one at the Millennial Fair. Because it's a video game, it's actually a test of the player's timing- Crono moves back and forth, and the player has to hit "A" when he's at the farthest point from the game.

Everything's Better with Spinning: Crono's Cyclone and Confuse attacks, and the various Dual Techs based off them — but averted by his "Cleave" attack which is, ironically enough, called "Spincut" in the original translation.

Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?

comment
Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Crono and his friends discover an ancient, city-sized alien that has leeched genetic progress from and plans to destroy all civilization. Their response is to begin Level Grinding until they are of sufficient power to stab it in the face.note  They are intelligent about it. After seeing the power of Lavos at his strongest, they decide to attack it at its weakest, and try to get it before it can leech godly amounts of power from the planet. They just get the wrong era, and then can't actually attack it in the proper era. It's at that point that they decide to stop it in any way possible, out of necessity. Or bludgeon it to death with a mop... and the game's 13 different endings actually encourage you to travel through time to defeat it at as many points in time as possible.

Outside-Context Problem
 Chrono Trigger (Video Game) / int_cc7fae30

Outside-Context Problem: Lavos is an extraterrestrial planetary parasite, making him a literal Giant Space Flea from Nowhere. Lavos' existence is known to various people at various times, but nobody knew its purpose until 1999, when it woke up. The party when they arrive in any time period that they're not native to. Their one big defeat happens because they aren't out of context to the people of Zeal since they can do magic, have Magitek that rivals the tech from Robo's time, and Magus is there to warn them about the heroes before they even arrive.
