Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMutation: If there's one thing people often remember to bring into a Chrono Cross conversation, it's getting wiped out by [[ThatOneBoss a fisherman]] as a plot boss. A fisherman with [[LightEmUp a massive magic light sword]] that will ''destroy you.''

* EndingAversion: The game pulls more plot threads out of its ass in the second disc than some games pull their entire length, and does not properly resolve them.

* FanPreferredCouple: Serge and Kid, which is also the closely thing to an OfficialCouple in this game. There's also [[GayOption Serge/Glenn]] (sometimes [[BiTheWay with Kid still included]]).

* EndingFatigue: Disc Two can charitably be called a glorified BossRush, where each boss feels like taking down the BigBad at last, but is followed by another one, and it can get ''very'' wearing. First, you fight Lynx/[[spoiler:Dark Serge/FATE]], who has been built up as the BigBad for the entire game. Then he goes down, and [[spoiler:the Dragon Gods do a FusionDance and become the Dragon God, who promises to ravage the world now that FATE, the thing sealing it away, is dead]]. Then, you go through the MarathonLevel to end all Marathon Levels, kill the [[spoiler:Dragon God]], and that's it, right? Nope, now you have to kill the [[spoiler:Time Devourer]]. Ff you don't jump through a couple of GuideDangIt laden hoops, then you literally ''do not get an ending'', just [[AWinnerIsYou a little title card saying 'Fin']].

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=EDDA9C269D2A8BB9 Listen for yourself.]] Even those who don't like the game praise the soundtrack. It's even been called the great video game soundtrack of all time.

** The [=TerraTerrors=] in Terra Tower, the penultimate dungeon. They're ''everywhere'', actively chase you, and have a tendency to spawn Cytoplasms in battle, which endlessly use weak techs. At this point, none of the enemies can damage you enough to be a real threat, so getting into fights is tedious and pointless. It doesn't help that the game is suffering from serious EndingFatigue at this point; these fights only serve to drag out an already-tiresome MarathonLevel.

** The Prehysterics in Gaia's Navel are not particularly difficult, but they can be extremely annoying due to the fact that their "Jurassic Beat" move causes confusion, which is surprisingly difficult to prevent with only one easily-missed accessory in the game providing full protection. The move is also a time-consuming animation that they spam nonstop throughout the battle. To top it off, they're found in an area where proceeding requires the player to kill all the monsters roaming around, so they can't be skipped.

* CharacterTiers: With almost fifty characters to choose from, this was inevitable. Thankfully, [[CantDropTheHero Serge and Lynx]] are pretty top-tier, but only a handful of others are even moderately useful.

to:

* CharacterTiers: With almost fifty CharacterTiers:
** Serge and Lynx are among the top tier characters. Useful because you CantDropTheHero unless it's a NewGamePlus.
** Higher tiers in the first part of the game are [[GirlNextDoor Leena]] for being good all around, [[GenkiGirl Kid]] for her stealing power, [[KnightInShiningArmor Glenn]] for his powerful attacks and dual tech with Serge, or [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Razzly]] for being the best magic users. A few others like [[ReligiousBruiser Greco]], Guile, and Nikki are all right. The rest of them aren't very good.
** Higher tiers in the second part of the game [[spoiler:When Serge is changed into Lynx]] include [[CommandingCoolness Norris]] who is a decent fighter, [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Harle]]]] who is good all around, [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Irenes]], for magic when [[spoiler:Harle]] would be useless because of her innate class, and later on [[spoiler:Karsh]] for his power and strong weapons. Miki is also liked for her all-around power, and [[{{Pirate}} Fargo]] for having good power and being able to steal the rare Plate armors. Other
characters to choose from, this was inevitable. Thankfully, [[CantDropTheHero Serge like [[spoiler:Zoah, Marcy, Viper, and Lynx]] are pretty top-tier, but only a handful of others are even moderately useful.Riddel]], along with Steena, also do fairly well.
** Later-game high ranked characters include Orlha for her incredible strength.
