After you satisfy yourself chatting with the game's creators, one of them will give you the appropriate reward for someone who beat the game is even called "Footsteps! Follow!".

so quickly -- a hyperspeed credit roll.



* HopelessBossFight: Lavos in its first appearance--but it's technically not a ''hopeless'' fight, just incredibly difficult. The story dictates that you lose this fight, [[OffTheRails but if your stats are high enough, you can actually win]], which will earn you the hardest ending--a visit to the DevelopersRoom. (This ending can also happen if you beat Lavos before you ever go back in time, thus being a DuelBoss between Crono and Lavos; it requires you to be on NewGamePlus to even try though, much less win.)

* BaitAndSwitch: Lara, Lucca's mother, sits in a chair all day because her legs were crushed many years ago. You can choose to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong and save her in the past. If you do, and return to the present to see her, she'll remain sitting in the same chair, for a moment implying that YouCantFightFate. ...Until she stands up right after and starts walking around.

After some jumping between the past, present, and future, Crono and his RagtagBunchOfMisfits gain foreknowledge of the destruction of the world: [[EldritchAbomination A giant interstellar termite]] known as Lavos burrowed beneath the earth in the prehistoric era, and if time goes as it normally would, Lavos will rise again in 1999 AD and cause a global apocalypse. To save the world, Crono and his crew [[DualWorldGameplay travel between eras]] as they try to find a way of eradicating the Lavos threat for good. The group of heroes will visit the Middle Ages of 600 AD, where an evil sorcerer threatens the land that will become Crono's home; the [[AfterTheEnd dark and ruined future]] of 2300 AD, where the survivors of Lavos' destruction eke out a precarious existence against genetic mutants and genocidal robots; [[OneMillionBC the prehistoric era of 65000000 BC]], where the ancestors of humanity fight against evil sentient lizards (and their dinosaurs); and the mysterious [[TheTimeOfMyths Age of Magic]] in 12000 BC, where the inhabitants of the FloatingContinent of Zeal attempt to harness the dormant power of Lavos for their own ends; and uses the literal End of Time as... [[MundaneUtility a hover-car garage]].

** The "slideshow" ending. Nearly all of the MultipleEndings accessible in a NewGamePlus playthrough are reached by defeating Lavos during relatively broad "windows," such as "after defeating Boss A but before defeating subsequent Boss B." However, the slideshow can only be viewed by defeating Lavos after witnessing Schala open the door to the throne room, but before taking the party's pendant to the Mammon Machine -- the latter action is normally done immediately after the former, and it's extremely unlikely that the idea of "I think I'll backtrack out of here and defeat Lavos right this moment" would naturally occur to anyone in the absence of a guide.

** In the [[GuideDangIt very secretive]] "slideshow" ending, Lucca remarks [[Series/TheTonightShow "Theeeeeeeeere's Johnny!"]] upon seeing the racer cyborg from 2300 AD.
** After the Reptites are defeated, one of the Ioka villagers' reactions includes the phrase, [[WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy "Happy happy joy joy."]]
