* YinYangBomb: This is a feature of an optional character, Pip/Tumalu. You can evolve him as light/light, dark/dark, or light/dark (or dark/light, works the same way). The third is often considered the best standalone. [[spoiler:Also, to get the GoodEnding, you have to pull this trope off with all three Element colour conflicts (white/black, red/blue, yellow/green; these represent light and space/gravity and hell, fire and lava/water and ice, and earth and lightning/nature and wind.]]

* DesignatedLoveInterest: Serge and Kid can end up this way, depending on the player's choices. Much related media from official art to [[spoiler: a photo in the Golden Ending's cutscene implying their marrage]] points to Kid being the female lead of the game and Serge's love interst. However, it's entirely possible to go through the entire game ''without even recruiting her''. Even if you do, her relationship with Serge can easily be interpreted as platonic TrueCompanions rather than anything romantic, which leads some players to think this way.

* EnigmaticMinion: Harle, for [[MindScrew confusing]] and spoilery reasons.

* GreyAndGreyMorality: No one in ''Chrono Cross'' can be truly called evil, apart from, perhaps, the Masamune itself. And even then, the sword has been corrupted by years of abuse.

* RecurringRiff: The thematic ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' theme is reused several times, as well as Lucca's victory fanfare theme. In addition, CC's theme for bustling Termina is reminiscent of Guardia's Millenial Fair in CT, and [[spoiler:the first ending theme contains parts of "Schala's Theme", which makes perfect sense.]] In addition, since CC started life as the game ''VisualNovel/RadicalDreamers'', many themes from the original Satelliview game are remixed for CC, including the main theme, the battle theme, "Frozen Flame", and "Star-Stealing Girl".

** Guile is a complicated case. Based on Magil from ''VisualNovel/RadicalDreamers'', who turns out to be [[spoiler:Magus from ''Chrono Trigger'' keeping an eye on his sister]], that part of Guile's backstory was dropped during development but the Expy-ness remained. Then the DS remake of Chrono Trigger implies that Guile is [[spoiler:an amnesiatic, alternate dimension Magus]]. WordOfGod states that Guile is [[spoiler:neither Magil nor Magus]], bringing us full circle.

** The Radius is unbeatable during the tutorial battle in the beginning of the game. Even in NewGamePlus, where Serge may well be powerful enough to destroy the FinalBoss singlehandedly, you can't take Radius down. If you survive for a few turns after he starts trying to knock you out, though, he'll compliment you and simply end the battle.

* PoorPredictableRock: Appears when you [[FridgeLogic think too hard about it]]. All of the guards in Viper Manor except two of the top three are Yellow-innate. This is because they're (almost) all members of a small pool of "monsters" and "monsters" of the same type always have the same innate. However, they're all ''human'', and humans throughout the game have all sorts of different innates, so it really makes you question Viper's hiring policy. Even certain plot characters among his guard force (Solt, Peppor, Ketchop, and Zoah) are Yellow-innate for some reason. Viper himself is Yellow-innate! It's just begging for a task force trying to break in (say, Serge and Kid) to load up on Green elements and storm on in. Only Karsh and Marcy seem to get away from this trope at all.

* GameBreaker: The elemental plates you can steal from the dragons. The black plate especially (though getting it is something of a GuideDangIt to get. You have to wake up the Black Dragon before you can fight it/steal its plate which requires a rather involved sidequest. Otherwise you just take its treasure from its sleeping body.). Wearing one makes you absorb all damage from its respective element. [[spoiler:FATE and Dario]] are some of the hardest fights in the game normally, but with the black plate equipped, at least one character is basically immortal. And this applies to any 1 element using enemies, which is most of them.

* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: The game does this with both main character and party members, but in an unusual way. [[spoiler: Your antagonist [[GrandTheftMe body-swaps you]]. Your old party members stay behind with "Serge" and you're forced to recruit and equip a new party as Lynx.]]
