** Even though it's just a theory, Time Bastard would stop the latter from happening. So long as Robo stays on the path he'll always end up being picked up by Chrono's team. The same could happen again by doing another loop, but then Time Bastard would go into effect when Chrono's party goes to pick up Robo. Assuming there were now two Robo present when the party comes to collect him, this begins to mess with the shift of time in which Robo they pick or which one is theirs. The time in which the party with Robo after the first 400 years time travels next would then remove the Robo with the lesser time immunity (which collects in an entity the more it time-travels and is what keeps the latest entity present, paradox free.) The same problem happens when you take that and start cloning an army of Robos. I'm sure however I must be missing something about the theory, but the same question was asked at the Chrono Compendium which you can read about [[https://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Robo_(Duplicate_Idea).html here.]]

** This is just a WMG, but consider this: if the Entity is the planet, then the planet is probably grateful to Robo for reforesting such a large chunk of it and wants to help him out. Robo's only real desire is to serve humans, especially Lucca, since she fixed him and cares about him more than anyone else. The planet picks up on this affection after Robo spends 400 years planting and so on, and so it determines that the way to pay back Robo for what he's done is to grant Lucca her greatest desire. When they camp in the woods, Lucca is thinking about the moment when Lara lost her legs thanks to the fireside conversation they just had. The Entity/planet picks up on this and creates the red gate just for her. Since Frog and Robo aren't really buddies (any more than anyone else in the party anyway), and Frog didn't spend 400 years caring for the planet, then the planet doesn't feel the need to help Frog out in the same way (I'm picturing the Entity/planet as a large consciousness that treats its inhabitants less like individual humans and more like we do our internal bacteria: helpful, but usually not noteworthy in an individual sense. Robo is, of course, the exception, since he spent 400 years improving the planet).

** The correct answer is "doormat" and it's actually not touched on how she feels about cooperating with Zeal, interestingly enough. I think the key thing here is that players feel bad about her place in life. Regardless of circumstance, saying 'no' to your mom can be hard to do, especially when she's angry and scary and has complete authority. And throw in the fact that Zeal used to be a normal, loving mother, maybe Schala has some unconscious, naive part of her mind that hopes Zeal will go back to the way she was if she cooperates enough? I don't know if that helps you, but that sounds like an angst fic waiting to be written. Additionally, a lot of sympathy comes from fans of Magus, for the effect she had on him, being the only person who cared about him other than Alfador. And let's face it, you can only root so much for a palette swap cat.

** Unless "Black Omen" is just a nickname given by the people. I don't recall Zeal ever naming it herself.

* Granted, I get it, it's to give a sense uf urgency to take out Mother Brain, but...what does the Geno Dome DO anyways? I mean...killing people can be done on site, so rounding them up is unnecessary. Machines are inorganic, so any meat the people would provide is, frankly, useless. All that leaves is a Matrix-ish plot of making people batteries which just doesn't jive up either. I know, I know, MST3KMantra and all, but I just can't wrap my head around this one.

** The Matrix plot seems pretty close to what's happening, in a slightly more... permanent manner. If you go to one of the rooms in Geno Dome, you can see humans on a conveyor belt. They go through a machine, you hear a scream, and a glowing thing (looks like one of the tablets you find) comes out the other side. I wouldn't be surprised if whatever's coming out the other side there is being used to power the facility/robots in some manner. Might as well get something out of the killing. At that point, the headscratcher is whether it's more energy-efficient to process the bodies or just kill them.

* Why does only Lucca get a gate that lets her fix something in her past? I'm pretty sure Frog has something he'd want to go back to and change, too.

** We know very little of the actual details of the earth's core today; much of what we do know is extrapolated from our limited sensor readings and knowledge of physics. It's possible they detected some sort of anomaly at the earth's core, but didn't know what it was (since "evil space flea" is hardly going to be the go-to theory for anomalous readings.) Even if they did know, it's possible they just couldn't do anything -- pressure at the core is immense; we don't really have any ability to influence it in the modern day.

*** Its important to remember that HP doesn't just represent Physical Health but also ability and will to fight, Ayla's Kiss doesn't necessarily directly Heal, so much as encourage and push the target to keep fighting, as well as return their focus(breaking mental ailments) and possibly drawing out poison(a semi-real thing, which would deal with more physical ailments).



** Because Sir Crono is the one who defeated the monsters on the bridge during Ozzie's attack, saved the Queen with the aid of Sir Frog, and, together, they defeated the evil Fiendlord. Who the heck else is so famous, and has such awesome, spikey red hair? Otherwise, it's just a case of 'your ancestor kicked my ancestor's ass, so I'm-a revenge on your ass' type dealie.

** They're the weakest monsters in the entire game; presumably, they pose no threat to even NPC knights. Escorts are needed through the forest, but it's probably not considered overwhelmingly dangerous.
