* HelloInsertNameHere: Slight amusement can be found in naming Marle, Frog, Robo, and [[spoiler:Magus]] their "real" names, once you've played through the game and know what they are. The DS remake allows six-letter names for characters (memory issues limited the original to five letters), allowing people to name Crono as he was intended in the Japanese version ("Chrono").

* FinalBossPreview: On top of the fight with Lavos at the Ocean Palace, the DS version has [[spoiler: a potential FinalBossPreview for ChronoCross with the Dream Devourer, the precursor to the Time Devourer.]]

* KarmaHoudini: Considering all the headaches he causes, the fact that [[spoiler: Dalton]] just sort of runs away following his last boss fight and faces no comeuppance for his role in the game's events is something of a letdown. It's even worse in the DS remake and in ChronoCross when you find out that he [[spoiler: runs off to Porre and helps turn them into an advanced military nation that eventually conquers Guardia, the homeland of Crono, Marle, and Lucca.]]

* ProtagonistTitle: This is confusing, as it involves a little bit of RetCanon. The words "Chrono Trigger" are only used in this game to refer to a MacGuffin that's used to reach a ''specific'' point in time (as opposed to a TimeGate, which only go to a predestined time). However, ''Videogame/ChronoCross'' retroactively establishes that people themselves can be a Chrono Trigger, and implies that Crono was one, since important events seemed to revolve solely around him.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Heavily idealistic. VideoGame/ChronoCross's DarkerAndEdgier tone is one of the reasons it's such a hotly ContestedSequel.

** The DS remake also gives Marle an Infinity +1 Bow. The Venus Bow, when it hits, always does 777 points of damage. Against some Mooks with high defense [[note]]like those in Heckran Cave, which you reach pretty early in the game - i.e. the time you're most likely to use her[[/note]]] , she can end up doing far more damage than anyone else (except Ayla's Infinity +1 Bronze Fists which she gets at Level 96...)

* GenderRestrictedGear: The Prism Dress, which provides the most powerful defensive option (permanent Magic Barrier, reducing magic damage by 1/3) is only usable by Ayla, Lucca and Marle.Robo, Chrono, Frog, and Magus have Nova Armor, which provides status immunity and only marginally less defense than the best armor in the game.

* GlobalCurrencyException : In 65,000,000 B.C., you can only buy weapons by trading animal parts, which the monsters drop instead of gold. (The item merchant, on the other hand, is ''very'' enthusiastic about your "shiny stone".) In 2300 AD, meanwhile, while the merchants will take your cash (who else is there to sell ''to''?), they ''will'' question its value.
