*** Mother Brain never specifies how the planet will recover however; it is inhospitable to nearly all life and the only reason humans are still around are thanks to the Enertron, which will soon break down as well. It's also heavily implied that Lavos's species ravages planets beyond the point of repair before continuing to the next. Couple that with Mother Brain's plans on making her own nation of metal, and it seems more likely that she means "Lavos will die off eventually and we'll be left to make the husk of a planet into our own." Also, while it's never specifically stated what The Entity is exactly, it's more or less implied to ''be'' the planet itself.

*** This is a bit incorrect on the part of the planet itself dying, though: Mother Brain specifically states that eventually the planet will recover (in the same way that our planet would recover after a nuclear winter or other catastrophic event barring its complete destruction). I think it's more accurate to say that The Entity itself is actively helping Lucca right the past in gratitude for her altruism, rather than the planet doing the same. As for the idea of the planet's life flashing before its eyes, it could be using humanity as a proxy for that, as humans ''are'' on their way out in the original timeline.

** Look at [[https://gamefiles.alphacoders.com/boxart/original/front/1255-1.jpg this enlarged version]] of the box art. Marle does not have six fingers. The part that looks like a sixth finger is just the crease of her palm.

** Why would the portal send him back as though no time has passed? If the portals go back a set period of time, and I'm pretty sure they do, the portal would send Chrono and crew back 400 years from Marle's disappearance, then send them forward 400 years from the time Chrono has saved Marle from not existing. The same amount of time would pass in both time periods.

If the portals go back a set period of time, time (as opposed to sending you to one specific moment in time), and I'm pretty sure they do, the portal would send Chrono and crew back 400 years from Marle's disappearance, then send them forward 400 years from the time Chrono has saved Marle from not existing. The same amount of time would pass in both time periods.

* Probably a mix of both. We never get a real glimpse of how things were between the day of Lavos and the day we arrive in the future, but humanity definitely wouldn't have been able to survive 300 years under those specific conditions we see, so things should have been at least a little bit better before.

*** Chrono Cross's plot being good or not is up to debate. If I'm not mistaken I believe the after-game content from the DS port is canon-informant but non-canon; that is to say what we see in certain scenarios like Magus and Dream Devourer, and what characters state like Dalton, is considered canon to the franchise but the method in which the player accesses that information (going through the Dimensional Vortexes) is in itself non-canon.

*** "Really bad fanfic" wasn't meant ''literally'', it was meant in the sense that it was (ostensibly) written the way badly-written fanfiction is typically written. The fact that it was written by the same writers as the previous game only makes it worse.


Added DiffLines:

** "...or Dalton kills her, rendering the Mammon Machine and the entire Ocean Palace useless, saving millions of lives... She ''knew'' this." Asking someone to die for the benefit of others isn't THAT easy. You don't have to be a moron, a closet sociopath, ''or'' a doormat to want to live, regardless of the consequences of doing so. "Schala refuses to go with him and Dalton backs off..." Given that he was already trying ''death threats'', it's fairly dicey to assume he'll give up so easily.

[[folder: Doan, Last of the Wild Riders]]
* Er, hang on a second. Doan is an old man in 2300 A.D. An old man that, quote, "used to ride ''[his jetbike]'' when he was younger." Through a dystopian wasteland caused by Lavos 301 years ago. I'm sorry, what? Either the world wasn't in nearly as bad shape in the 2200s, or there was some ''[[Film/MadMax Mad Max]]''-esque stuff going on back then.
