* BeamMeUpScotty: The iconic "GoodMorningCrono" appears on a bunch of wallpapers used to promote the DS remake, despite it being one of the lines that was altered in the new translation.
* IKnewIt: Even before the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS remake, there was the occasional theory that Dalton was responsible for [[spoiler:Guardia's destruction between ''''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger and ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.]]

** Mother Brain. No relation to Mother Brain of ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' fame, although the pair would probably get along great.
** There's yet ''another'' Mother Brain that's a major villain in ''Videogame/PhantasyStarII'', also a supercomputer.
* NoExportForYou: Up until the DS version, the game was never released in Europe. There's also the prototype version of ''Chrono Cross'' called ''Radical Dreamers''.

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: Many rumours were spoken of about non-existant content, most often about ways to allegedly save Schala from her unknown fate (''not'' helped by a line which originally meant "talk to your allies for help with sidequests" being translated as "someone close to you needs help... find this person, fast"). Why, you could be tempted to call the trope "Schala Lives!" (and indeed, we did for a while), except for the detail [[spoiler:she ''is'' still alive, you just can't do anything about it until [[VideoGame/ChronoCross the sequel]].]]

** It was actually confirmed that Gaspar, the Guru of Time, was going to be a party member, not Schala as was commonly theorized. May also have an (intentional?) OrphanedReference in the SNES translation: "If you really want to thank me, make me a member of your team!"
** Masato Kato stated in his [[http://www.chronocompendium.com/Term/Crono.html CT Ultimania interview]] that he and Yuji Horii intended for Crono [[spoiler:to stay dead after the Ocean Palace scenario]]. The party would retrieve a version of him predating the Millennial Fair to complete the quest, and then return him to his home time, [[spoiler:bittersweetly knowing he would go on to die at the Ocean Palace]].

* FanSequel: The team behind ''VideoGame/CrimsonEchoes'', a fan-made {{interquel}} that connects this game with the events of ''Cross'', received a cease-and-desist from Square-Enix just as development of the game neared completion. Square-Enix's motives for doing so remain under speculation, but the game's ROM leaked despite the [=C&D=], so you can still play it.
