Chrono Trigger Characters
Spoilers are currently hidden.
In Chrono Trigger, your party meets a wide variety of men, women, and machines throughout the different time streams. Some might give the group useful items or advice, some are mere acquaintances of your party members, and some are villains that find Crono mutely objecting to their own dark agendas. But no matter who they are, where they're from, or when they're from, they all make up Chrono Trigger's colorful cast of characters. Here they are, organized more or less by time period:
Home Time Period
For most of the game Crono is a mandatory one-third of your three active characters, but this is hardly a chore as Crono is easily one of the more useful and powerful characters in the game. His Power, Stamina, and Speed are all excellent, and his Magic and Magic Defense get the job done. As a Lightning-element character, Crono receives less damage from Lightning attacks. Crono’s Techs are a mix of physical and Lightning damage, with the useful Life spell filling out his list of skills. Crono takes part in ten of the game’s fifteen Triple Techs and has an incredible variety of Dual Techs and Triple Techs available to him, making him perhaps the game’s most party-friendly character. By the end of the game Crono is most useful as a character able to perform many Dual Techs and Triple Techs and as a powerful damage dealer, both physically and magically.
