** In a subversion of using an "exotic" name, Woolsey changed Princess Mardia to Princess Nadia. Also, Janus' Japanese name is Jakki, not Jackie, though it's likely Woolsey didn't know that, either (both names are written the same in Japanese).

* FanPreferredCouple: Despite Crono/Marle being the OfficialCouple, a considerable portion of the fandom has held torches for Crono/Lucca.

** Lucca as the [[ChildhoodFriendRomance unlucky childhood friend]] of Crono's who was just [[CannotSpitItOut unable to admit her feelings]] and then [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy stood aside for Marle]] is such a common fan assumption that it's actually rarer to find portrayals of her that take her at her word that they're PlatonicLifePartners. Granted, the {{canon}} itself doesn't totally [[ShipSinking rule out the possibility]].

** Frog and Crono, to a lesser extent. The character that plays the [[spoiler:Crono resurrection scene]] is determined by a priority list, presumably with the characters that are closer to Crono having a higher priority. [[LoveInterest Marle's first]], [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Lucca's second]]. Guess who's third.

** Robo's theme sounds quite similar to Music/RickAstley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." It's an odd feeling being {{Rickroll}}ed in the middle of a video game. It's especially funny because when Yasunori Mitsuda was asked about it, he said he honestly hadn't heard of Astley when he was composing the music for this game. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZ20N6syuwc This eventually came full circle with the "RoboRoll" mashup.]]

* 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''.

** The Ocean Palace Disaster, a.k.a. [[spoiler:Crono's death]], is approximately five player punches in a row. [[spoiler: Magus fails, Crono dies, Schala disappears, Lavos awakens 14,000 years early and destroys Zeal, and then the Choose Your Party screen comes up without Crono in it, proving that, barring optional time travel shenanigans, he is indeed KilledOffForReal.]] Ouch.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** [[NothingIsScarier The snowstorm in 12,000 BC]]; Lavos' cry.
** Lavos' Destruction Rains from the Heavens, the attack he uses on the entire world, and a fairly damaging attack in the first phase of his battle.
