* StealthSequel: When the game was originally released, it wasn't advertised as being connected to ''Chrono Trigger'' at all; as the game goes on, names like "Heckran" and "Porre" start dropping until it becomes explicitly connected through TheReveal[=(s)=].



* TimeTravel: [[spoiler:Schala (or someone with suspicious similarity to her story) travelled to the current era as Kid. Technically, because she was turned into a baby and through time by the power of the Frozen Flame, it could also count as both {{Reincarnation}} and FountainOfYouth]].

The story involves a trio of bandits, the titular Radical Dreamers, consisting of Serge, the protagonist, who follows Kid, a young girl with a short temper, and Magil, a mysterious magician, as they break into Viper Manor, home of the imposing Lord Lynx, on a quest to steal a treasure called the Frozen Flame. On the surface, it has nothing whatsoever to do with ''Chrono Trigger'', except that we later find that [[spoiler:the adoptive sister Kid seeks to avenge is Lucca from ''Chrono Trigger'']]. Creator/YasunoriMitsuda, who composed the much-lauded soundtrack to ''Chrono Trigger'', also composed the music for ''Radical Dreamers''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFaceless: All graphics of Kid are always of her facing away from the viewer. As a result, what her face looks like is a complete mystery.

* Buttmonkey: Poor poor Serge. He seems to exist only to fail at everything he does and be comically abused by Kid.

A bit of history for you. In 1996, Creator/SquareSoft (now Square Enix) released ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', a phenomenally successful {{RPG}} for the Super Nintendo. A sequel to ''Chrono Trigger'' was in the works for a while, but not in the way people might have expected. Rather than another console RPG, the sequel surfaced in the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] {{Satellaview}} add-on for the SNES. This little device allowed players to download content and games, in a remarkably prescient precursor to [[DownloadableContent current trends]] for home consoles, over ten years later.

Fast-forward four years to 2000 when Square's PlayStation era was well underway. A full-blown sequel was announced for the PSX, called ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''. However, rather than being a brand-new game, it built off of elements from ''Radical Dreamers''. This included plenty of [[ShoutOut shout outs]], such as Viper Manor, Lynx, and the Frozen Flame, and lots of remixed music, including the main theme (which became the Alternate Universe theme, as opposed to the ''Chrono Trigger'' main theme which was the Home Universe theme). Despite the influence, ''Chrono Cross'' suggests ''Radical Dreamers'' is a (yet another) [[GaidenGame alternate dimension]] in the {{Canon}}; in Chronopolis, the party can actually find a terminal that repeats the ''Radical Dreamers'' introduction verbatim and the characters comment on it. In addition, the ending theme is called "Radical Dreamers: Le Tresor Interdit", a rough translation of the full title of the original.

RD contains one "main" story and, once it's finished, the ability to branch it off into seven [[SchrodingersGun wildly different]] stories which range from poignant to ridiculous.
