* SelfFanservice: Magus is drawn in {{fan art}} as a typical WhiteHairBlackHeart type (that is, in addition to his long white hair, he is also drawn very ''pretty''), but AkiraToriyama's original character design for him is [[LooksLikeOrlok anything but]]. Ironically however, later games in the series imply that, despite Toriyama's design, he really is quite attractive. To a lesser extent, some female characters like Lucca and Ayla.

** Especially if you interpret the strong resemblance of "Never Gonna Give You Up"'s lyrics to Robo's theme as intentional (even though it probably wasn't), and then take the lyrics of that song to represent how Robo feels about Lucca.

* {{Fanon}}:
** The Zeal royal family dyeing their hair blue is very well engrained into the fanbase, despite a total lack of canon support. The theory mainly exists to justify [[spoiler:Schala]] having blonde hair in ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', as the game never explains why [[spoiler:Kid, who is explicitly Schala's clone, is blonde, as well as Schala herself in the closing scenes of the game.]] There are many that understand this to simply be fan theory, but internet legend sometimes elevates this to canon.
** 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 game {{canon}} itself doesn't totally [[ShipSinking rule out the possibility]].



* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Lucca is popularly shipped with most of the other playable characters, and even with some NPCs.



* RoboShip: Robo X Lucca.

* RoboShip: Robo X Lucca.Robo/Lucca.

* EightPointEight: IGN gave the DS port this score ''exactly''. [=NGamer magazine=] in the UK gave it 87%. The hate mail has already begun.

** Frog. Is his outdated Main/YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe an example of poor translation, or a lonely, scared kid trying to put on a brave face by (poorly) imitating the way he thinks a hero should sound?

** Give Crono the Rainbow (70% crit rate) and Fury Band (80% counter rate). Factor in that he can counter things like barrier changes and enemy revives and he becomes a killing machine.
*** For spamming the screen with death, [[HolyHandGrenade Luminaire]] is not too shabby either. Combined with the Gold Studs mentioned below to reduce it to a paltry 5 MP, or swap the studs for Prism Specs to trade efficiency for power, it is one of the go-to spells for clearing the room and even dealing damage to many bosses. If the enemies are immune, then your Rainbow Sword will usually take over.
** Ayla by herself. She's got the highest Strength and Speed in the game (making her the party's best tank), can Charm exclusive equipment from bosses, is cheap to outfit (she doesn't require a weapon), and employs a variety of very effective low-cost Double healing techs with other characters like Frog. The only downsides are her lack of elemental attacks and pretty boring lines. The same can be said of her avatar in ''Chrono Cross'', Fargo (and later Kid, when she ''finally'' rejoins): a good all-purpose fighter, but damned if it isn't tedious constantly seeing him in your party!
*** Also Dino tail. Non elemental damage that increases the lower Ayla's hitpoints get. Revives are super-cheap, and revive Ayla with very low hitpoints. Keep Ayla on the brink of death and she'll do 3000+ damage to everything on the screen every time she uses it. And since she's got very high speed she'll probably get it off before anything even attacks.

* GoddamnedBats: Those rats and frogs from the Lost Sanctum bonus dungeon. You ''cannot'' avoid fighting them. Considering that the whole dungeon is one giant FetchQuest Ad Nauseum, you ''will'' fight them well over 30 times just traveling back and forth. It's not that they're hard... but you just cannot avoid fighting them, so it breaks the flow and becomes annoying very fast.

** In general, there are a few encounters that, no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot avoid fighting. This makes the backtracking in the early part of the game somewhat tedious, since you'll be having to fight trash mobs that can barely even scratch you while a stiff breeze could kill them several times just to reach a Gate. This gets a lot better when you're able to travel through time in [[GlobalAirship the Epoch]].

** '''Gold Studs'''! Get three Gold Studs to cut your MP costs, and you can spam your most powerful magic without a care in the world. This is incredibly easy to do as well as one enemy (Scouter in the SNES version, Flyclops in PS1) in the game gives them after they are Charmed. Combine this with Marle's Haste above, and you'll have a team that can spam Triple Techs like there's no tomorrow. Most bosses go down like chumps.

** Frog and Marle's dual tech Ice Water is the first full-screen nuke you get, at the cost of 2 MP each. When you first get it, it's a complete gamebreaker that lets you waltz through all the trash mobs in Magus' Castle without breaking a sweat.

* {{Narm}}: While the subplot of Marle and her father falling out with each other has its emotional ups and downs, there's one moment that doesn't really work: If Marle presents King Guardia with beef jerky because it's [[YourFavorite his favorite]], he'll scold Marle for giving him food high in cholesterol and accuse her of trying to kill him, worsening their already strained relationship. But compared to everything else in the subplot, it really seems like he's overreacting.
