** HealthDamageAsymmetry. How much "power" a hit point represents is not the same thing for a character as it is for an enemy.

* Most of the gates have at least some logic behind them. The 65,000,000 BC gate is when Lavos hit the earth; the 12,000 BC gate is the catastrophe of Zeal; the 600 AD gate is when Magus tried to awaken Lavos and failed; the 1000 AD gate is when Lucca's teleportation experiments opened up the first gate; 1999 is obviously the apocalypse. What's special about 2300 AD, though, as opposed to any other year in the timeline? Nothing particularly special happens on that exact year.

If it's the date the planet finally died (which seems like the only real option), why isn't there any indicator of that in-game?

[[folder: Why the change from BC to AD?]]
* The calendar of Chrono Trigger has both BC and AD. What was the occurrence that caused the people to start naming the years using AD? Was it the founding of the Kingdom of Guardia?

* 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.

** Time was heavily altered by various means, affecting the decision to make the Black Omen present final. The battle with Lavos's final form reflects its ability to change the fabrication of time during battle.

** Time was heavily altered by various means, actions, affecting the decision to make the Black Omen present Omen's visibility final. This includes the presence of the characters in 65,000,000 B.C. where they shouldn't even exist, which then altered the 12,000 B.C.'s timeline and the altered events unfold, including Crono's death. The battle with Lavos's final form reflects revealed that it was adapting its full plans due to its ability to change the fabrication of time during battle. All of this was believed to make Lavos gain more power from the magic-heavy 12,000 B.C. as a preemptive strike has its plans failed.
