** 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, she can end up doing far more damage than anyone else (except Ayla's Infinity +1 Bronze Fists which she gets at Level 96...)

Against some Mooks with high defense, 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...)

* CandlelitRitual: Magus's rite to summon [[EldritchAbomination Lavos]] involves a series of braziers burning blue flame surrounding his circle and the path leading to it. The flames light automatically as the heroic party approaches.

* CosmicHorrorStory: The series as a whole became this once ''ChronoCross'' came along.



* DubNameChange: Frog's signature weapon, the Masamune sword. Should come as no surprise that a western ''knightsword'' is wrongly named after a famous eastern ''katana''. In the japanese version, it's named Grandleon, which makes more sense.

* AnEconomyIsYou: Highlighted by the fact that no matter what time zone you are in people will sell roboting arm attachments, guns, and crossbows.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: A mini-game involves collecting cat food for Chrono's cat(s). Regardless of how much you actually collect, it/they will still run away in one ending.

* GiantWallOfWateryDoom: [[spoiler:Zeal's destructon]] in 12,000 BC causes a tsunami to flood most of the world. Only a few survivors remain, bridging the divide between the 'Earthbound Ones' and the 'Enlightened Ones.'

* MadeOfIndestructium: Probably an unintentional example. Since Gato must survive to give out silver points afterwards, he can't die no matter what the party hits him with. A Luminare to the face? Still standing. Warp the fabric of space and time with a Dark Matter blast? Shrugs it right off. Blow up the entire screen with a triple tech? What else you got? Lucca built him REALLY sturdy.

* RecurringLocation: Crono visits the future site of Leene Square at the beginning of the game. In one of the optional endings, Robo is seen walking around a futuristic Leene Square; He and Atropos reenact Crono and Marle's CrashIntoHello. In ''Chrono Cross'', an apocalyptic Leene Square greets those who make it to the end of the Dead Sea.

** The first time you arrive at Medina, the shopkeepers sell weapons three tiers above what you'll currently be using, for 10 times the gold you'd expect. This is becaues the fiends of the village hate humans after losing a war 400 years ago. [[spoiler: After you've changed history to make fiends no longer hate humans, the prices become more reasonable, but by then, the gear is outclassed.]]

** Hey, whatever happened to Schala? Oh well, it's not important! [[spoiler: ''VisualNovel/RadicalDreamers'' was concieved just to rectify this, and due to Kato not being satisfied with it and the short amount of time it took to develop it, the MindScrew that was ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' was created, with her playing and even larger role in it than in ''Radical Dreamers''.]]

** Queen Zeal and Schala have blue hair. [[spoiler:It's implied to be dyed, given Schala's blonde apperance in ''Chrono Cross''.]]
* YourSizeMayVary: When you fight Lavos, he takes up about half the screen and seems to be about as large as a big house, certainly small enough to [[spoiler:fit inside the Mammon Machine room at the Ocean Palace]]. However, his appearance in the Day Of Lavos recording and the cutscene prior to his fight display a city-sized Lavos splitting the earth. He left a small-continent sized crater after crashing on earth in Prehistory. The [[spoiler:[[GlobalAirship upgraded Epoch]]]], which is almost as large as Lavos's battle sprite. may be crash landed through its shell inside of him. Its [[BiggerOnTheInside insides]] sprawl at least over four screen heights, certainly larger than Lenne's Square. And [[spoiler:his [[OneWingedAngel first of two final forms]]]] is also about as large as he is on the outside.

* 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).

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.

* 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.

* 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.
