* CriticalHit: Several weapons that don't require excessive effort to get have abnormally high critical rates, which can be increased even more with items.
* CriticalHitClass: Ayla (and in the remake, Robo) eventually get the ability to do 9999 damage on a critical hit. Combined with luck-enhancing equipment, can reach GameBreaking levels (although if Ayla's powerful enough to get the ability, you're probably overleveled anyway).

to:

* CriticalHit: Several Complete with a more vicious attack animation for all characters. They're a core element of late game, as well, with the availability of weapons that don't require excessive effort to get have abnormally with high critical rates, which can be increased even more crit chance and the potential to increase it with certain items.

Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeSpeculativeStratification: The Kingdom of Zeal, occupying the era of 12,000 BC, has a populace of elites inhabiting {{Floating Continent}}s festooned with CrystalSpiresAndTogas, and use their powerful magic to make an easy life, while the "earthbound" without magic are forced to wear rags and live in caves. Things used to be more fair, until [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Zeal]] rose to power and rearranged society around the worship of magic and its ultimate source, [[EldritchAbomination Lavos]]. They get their comeuppance, though: trying to use Lavos as a power source proves [[EvilIsNotAToy not to be a good idea]] and Zeal is sent crashing into the ocean.

Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateName: one of the enemy creatures is called a "bugger" (it's part of a family of monsters called "bug", "bugger" and "buggest"). "Bugger" is [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage a fairly innocuous word in American English, but rather more suggestive in British English.]] Maybe that's why it wasn't released in Europe...

* KillAllHumans: The robots led by Mother Brain ([[PhantasyStarII not]] [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} that one]]) in 2300 A.D. decide that humanity's had its chance and failed, so the best thing to do is wait for Lavos and its spawn to leave the planet, take care of the last meatbags, and build a new android civilization.

Added DiffLines:

* XMeetsY: The game is basically ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' meets ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy''; in that it combines the light-hearted charm and art style of ''Dragon Quest'' with the cosmic scope and [[CombatantCooldownSystem Active Time Battle system]] of ''Final Fantasy''.

** ''Chrono Resurrection'' was a fan-made project to remake key parts of ''Chrono Trigger'' as a {{Nintendo 64}} TechDemoGame with awesome 3D graphics and remastered music... but near the end of 2004, they received a Cease and Desist from Square Enix, and were forced to drop the project.

** And then there's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment in the second visit to 65,000,000 BC: when going to hitch a ride from the Dactyls at their mountaintop nest, you can see a distant, red twinkle in the sky. [[spoiler:[[OhCrap This is Lavos, approaching the planet.]]]]

* NoBikesInTheApocalypse: Played relatively straight. There are interstates and highways in the future, but nobody left to drive on them; in fact, the Labs are mostly composed of ruined streetlights and rusted-out cars. The party eventually borrows a turbocycle from Johnny, but require a battery to power it.

* CampfireCharacterExploration: A sidequest that starts with leaving Robo in the past to plant a forest ends with the party around a campfire. There's little they talk about, but it ends up with Lucca discovering a gate to the past to the day her mother lost her legs trying to turn off a machine. If the player is quick enough, Lucca can save her mother, restoring her legs in the present. Robo then comes up to he and comforts her whether or not she succeeded, and gives her an item he made.

* CaptureAndReplicate: Yakra VIII captures the Chancellor and poses as him mainly to serve as an ObstructiveBeaurocrat in his aim to destabilize the kingdom. You can expose and kill him and free the real Chancellor during the Rainbow Shell subquest.

* AnEconomyIsYou: Exaggerated by the game design, which has most towns and settlements fully visible from the world map, rather than the traditional "step on map tile -> enter city" design.
