*** That's only for changes though. The Guardia line exists from the start of the game because it has always been there regardless of the main characters time travel shenanigans, while the forest only appears when Robo plants it because it only exists as a direct result of the partys time travel.

* A number of people in 600 and 1,000 AD comment on the Black Omen as though it's just a part of daily life. While it makes sense that everyone would regard it as something that has always existed, that doesn't really explain how they know what the thing is called. It's not like Queen Zeal periodically came down and let everybody know what its name was.

** As for Frog, not necessarily. If you mean Cyrus, by this point in the game, either Frog has avenged Cyrus (by killing Magus), or his feelings about Cyrus have gotten considerably more complex (by forgiving him). If you mean being a frog, Frog "quite enjoys" being one.

*** Not to mention CYRUS! You can take Magus to his grave, meaning Cyrus' ghost can meet the person who killed him, the person ''whose name is on his tombstone'', and just... not care.

** It's basically harvesting DNA. Some people are being killed on site. The ones who are particularly strong, fast or have an affinity for magic are instead being processed into tabs, which are used to power up the robots. Now, think of how many tabs you've used over the course of the game.

** There's also the slight issue of Crono being a fugitive from death row and his mom's reaction amounting to "I heard you were going to be executed! That's awful! Now be careful next time and run along."

** On a separate note, they're kind of horrible at running a kangaroo court. If I were trying to get Crono executed I'd mention the fact that he was responsible for cheating the vendors, specifically the race (which, admit it, you tried) or ''lowering the princess into a vat of fire'' (it wasn't actually dangerous, but who cares about facts?) or, like, literally anything about the Gate?? I guess maybe they are doing the court equivalent of CherryTapping but come on.

** It's the way they're surprised. It's not that they're surprised to see real dinosaurs, it's that the way they react (Marle: "Wh... what are those?" Lucca: "They're all green and scaly!"), it's like they have no idea what a dinosaur even is. Despite having seen one. A lot.

The Green Ambler at the Millennial Fair is either a Reptite or in a Reptite costume, which means A) their appearance is familiar to ''someone'', and more importantly, B) Crono's watched him run around a goddamn track dozens of times by now.

** Probably the latter, a Reptite costume. Reptites to Chrono in 1000 A.D. are like ancient dinosaurs to us now; we know they existed and we have some idea of what they looked like, but we know that such a creature no longer exists and so it isn't much of a threat to us when we see a person wearing a dinosaur costume. Seeing the real deal on the other hand is a whole different ballpark, which is exactly why Chrono and the gang are surprised when they see ''real'' Reptites in 65 million B.C.
