Activate the crystal. 2. Get to the center platform. As you start out, you will be in a dream. This part is pretty much straight-forward: Just follow the objectives. This area is a maze: Use the monsters you encounter while exploring to get used to the game. *** Arni Village *** Goals: 1. Talk to Leena. You wake up, realizing the previous incident was just a dream. Explore the town, training for battle if you wish. On the docks is Leena. Talk to her, and she will tell you to get her some Komodo Scales. *** Lizard Rock *** Goals: 1. Fight 3 battles with Kid Komodos. 2. Slay the Mama Komodo As you enter Lizard Rock, use the X key to move the boulder. There is your first Kid Komodo in this area. Scare it once (so it runs through the tunnel). Roll the boulder by the tunnel in front of it. Go around and scare the Komodo again. It runs into the tunnel and is blocked. Fight it in a battle. For the Komodo in the circular area (with the exit), just chase it (be sure to run). Eventually you'll catch it. The third Komodo (take the lower path in the first area) is difficult to catch. When you first enter, ignore the Komodo and head to the green tree. Climb to the top of it, and head to the top of it. You will return to the main area, where you can get on the rock from. If you walk to the edge of the rock, a message will tell you to use X to jump. Time it right, and jump on the Komodo. It may take a bit of practice. Boss: Mama Komodo As you defeat the final Kid Komodo, the Mama Komodo comes. If you have fire elements equipped, use them (don't use them in the 3rd Komodo Pup battle). This battle isn't all that hard with fire elements. After Mama Komodo dies, go on to Opassa Beach. *** Opassa Beach *** As you enter the beach, all destined to happen shall occur. Just walk to the end of the beach. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: A New World _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Opassa Beach *** You wake up on Opassa Beach. Leena is no longer there. *** Lizard Rock *** Goal: Get through Lizard Rock Just walk through. The enemies aren't much problem. Just remember to use all remaining elements to heal, and try not to use as many elements in battles. *** Arni Village *** Goal: Find Leena Explore this "new" Arni Village. Be sure to talk to Leena, who will tell you to visit Cape Howl to see your grave. *** Cape Howl *** Goals: 1. Get to Serge's gravestone. 2. Defeat Karsh, Solt, and Peppor. Go straight forward in Cape Howl to get to the top of it. Sure enough, there is Serge's grave. Suddenly, three dragoons come to capture you. To make things even weirder, you now have a new, mysterious ally to aid you. Boss: Karsh, Solt, and Peppor Have Serge attack at all times (since his attack count as white, which Karsh is weak against). You can use Kid's elements, but watch your supply. After the battle, you can let Kid join. Or, if you refuse her offer multiple times, she will leave. Don't worry, she'll be back. The cool thing is that Leena and her dog, Poshul join you now. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 3: Trek to Termina _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Fossil Valley *** Goals: 1. Get through Fossil Valley 2. Have a Rematch with Solt and Peppor You can go straight through, or choose to look around. Either way, Solt and Peppor want another fight at the end of fossil valley. Boss: Solt and Peppor If you happen to have a green element, use it. Otherwise, these guys are a pushover. *** Termina *** Goals: 1. Talk to the lady polishing General Viper's statue. 2. Find a guide Go straight forward (up the stairs) and talk to the lady polishing the statue. Having Guile be your guide: Get Guile with you by talking to him in the bar. The go to the right of town to the shrines, where Korcha will get you to the Viper Manor Bluffs. Having Pierre be your guide: Get Pierre by talking to him in his rented room in Zappa's Smithy, then go outside and talk to the kid running in circles to get the Hero Medal. Give the Hero Medal to Pierre and he will join. Having Nikki be your guide: Go to the Magical Dreamers boat docked at the harbor. Talk to the people in the lower room, and Miki will come in. Tell her that you will go look for Nikki in Shadow Forest. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 4: Entering Viper Manor With Guile _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Viper Manor Bluffs *** Goal: Get to the top of the bluffs. Climb up the bluffs. There are 3 obstacles that will be in your way. The rocks are the first. They each drain 10 HP from each character when they hit you. The geysers will usually just annoy you, as when you hit them they knock you down a bit. However, sometimes they can help you get treasure chests. The third obstacles is enemies. They can be avoided if you pass their hole in the cliff when they are in the back of it, though. Once you reach the top, the soldier will fight you. He's not much of a problem, just use elements, especially Guile's technique: Wandaln. Be sure to heal (use consumables) after the battle, because... Boss: King Moaman, Red Moaman, and Blue Moaman This is an annoying battle, and the beginning of a series of boss battles throughout Viper Manor. Use elements on the opposite element each individual moaman is innate to. Focus your attacks on one person so they don't use a triple technique. It's best to take out the King Moaman first so he doesn't get a chance to use Gravity Blow. Once the King Moaman is gone, the two other moamen are no match. Just watch your health. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 5: Entering Viper Manor With Pierre _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Probably the most straight forward method into the Manor is with Pierre. *** Viper Manor Gates *** Go to the gates with Pierre and choose to work out a plan to get in. Prepare to fight some dragoons, then fight your favorite teachers: Solt and Peppor! Boss: Solt, Peppor, and... Ketchop This time, they brought a friend. This guy's all muscle: On his first attack he will eliminate a party member, even on a New Game +, when you are as strong as possible. Luckily, Solt makes a dumb move by reviving you. I don't even have to tell you to focus all attacks on Ketchop and heal very frequently with some heal elements you could pick up in Termina. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 6: Entering Viper Manor With Nikki _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Shadow Forest *** Goals: 1. Save Nikki 2. Find Nikki 3. Move the monster blocking the path. 4. Fight Zoah, Solt, and Peppor 5. Get into the well of the manor First off, proceed into the forest, until you see Nikki surrounded by monsters. Mini-Boss: Monsters Nikki and three party members assist. You don't control Nikki. Focus your attacks on one monster and let Nikki do whatever: He's there to take damage for you. Follow Nikki into the cave under the waterfall. He will join you on your quest to the manor. Open the chest to get the aroma pouch. Outside the waterfall are three tree/bush things. Press X at them to fill the Aroma Pouch. The monster inside the cave will follow you if you use the aroma pouch on him and it has the scent he likes in it. Take him to the monster blocking the path to provide him with an appetizer, making him move. Sometimes he fights you, though. Proceeding on, you'll meet two familiar blockheads. Boss: Solt, Peppor, and... Zoah! Focus on killing Zoah. Use green elements, since they are all yellow Innate. After the battle, go in the cave. Roll the boulder in front of the hole the bugs are coming out of after killing the ghoul. Now run up the river and get to the bottom of the Viper Manor well. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 7: Invading Viper Manor _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Sneaking In Goals: 1. Obtain the Manor Key. 2. Enter the manor. If you're stealthy here, you will fight few battles. Start out by going up if you got here with Guile, or right then up if Pierre or Nikki helped you in. To the barn you go, where you'll get the Manor Key. Dodge the green light, or you'll get caught. Once in the barn, say that you are here to feed the dragons. Once you feed them for one round (doesn't matter how many times), you will be told to get the key that is in the cupboard. Go back outside and head left from the bottom of the screen. Using the trees for cover, make your way to the door. Some of the guards may catch you as you approach the front door. Just go in the manor from here. *** Inside Viper Manor *** Goals: 1. Obtain and Wear the guards' uniforms. 2. Get the door combination. 3. Defeat a Cybot or Neo and Bulbs to get back to the lobby. 4. Get to the library. 5. Defeat Marcy 6. Defeat Lynx's Shadow I will divide this section by the goals. Goal 1: Enter the manor and enter any combo in the door. You will fall through the floor into a cage. Defeat the guards there and your party will don their uniforms. Tip: Some doors have an eye on it. You'll have to fight a hard creature if you open the door when the eye isn't closed. If you fight the monster, you can use this to gauge your skills against the roborgs, if you can't beat the monsters, you probably can't eliminate a roborg. Goal 2: Go through the right door and into the first room (dining room). Talk to Glenn and the guard by him. Follow Glenn back to the living quarters, and examine the wall he was by. It will have the door combo on it. **Write down the combo. If you use the Neo and Bulbs method of returning to the lobby and you mess up the combo, you'll be forced to use the roborg method.** Tip: Don't walk along the carpet. This avoids several annoying combats. Goal 3: Use the Roborg method if you are fond of your fighting skills: The Roborgs are hard. If you aren't so tough, use the Neo and Bulbs section. Also use the Neo and Bulbs section if you want to be able to get Luccia and Pip in your group. I recommend the Neo and Bulbs section: It also gives you a growth star. Roborg Method: If you use this method and defeat the roborgs easily, the bosses here shouldn't be much trouble. For this method, proceed down the hall (with the dining room & living quarters) and go up the stairs. A roborg blocks your exit. Talk to him twice, and choose to bust him up. You can also do this with the other roborg, but I don't recommend it. Boss: Roborg Use green elements, and make sure you're good before you fight this guy. Neo and Bulbs method: Go to the right of the room where you got the uniforms. Three guards defend the treasure vault. Don't say a word when they ask you for the password. The password is total silence. After grabbing all of the treasures, go to the pendant on the wall. Whatever option you choose, you go through a secret door and... Boss: Neo and Bulbs Use cure and yellow elements on these guys. Throw all your attacks at one: 1 enemy is easier than 2. After the battle, Luccia looses interest in you. In the corner is a creature named Pip. Release him, and it will join you later. From here, proceed upstairs to the lobby. Note: The door next to Luccia's lab is loaded with puzzles. See more info about this under the Commonly Asked Questions section. Goal 4: Enter the combo into the door. Once through, take a left. The other way is blocked by a roborg that you cannot fight. Go across the bridge and into the library. Talk to the girl there. You will go into a battle with Marcy. Goal 5: Boss: Marcy Be ready for a fight. If you could defeat the roborgs, this will be easy. Afterwards, use the instructions the Prophet gives you. Save at the Record of Fate, as your biggest battle yet awaits. Goal 6: Boss: Lynx's Shadow This is what I call a boss. Use plenty of white elements. Attack at all times and watch your health. Use your cures wisely. After the battle, you make a quick evacuation. Then you are faced with an option that determines a lot: Save kid, or don't. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section B: Save Kid _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Return to Termina/Viper Manor _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Korcha will gladly boat you to Termina after you talk to the person at the shrine. Here are the characters that saving Kid leads to: New Characters: Luccia, in Viper Manor Korcha, Termina (After saving Kid) Razzly, Hydra Marshes Mel, Guldove (Late in the game) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: Hydra Marshes _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ 1. Save Razzly (Optional) 2. Eliminate the dwarves 3. Destroy the Hydra If you save Razzly, you must climb the log (in the first area) to the dead end and use the Beeba Flute. Fight the Wingape, then fall through the floor. Boss: Pentapus A red Innate character equipped with a sight scope should send this boss into the underworld. Use all elements except blue, and heal frequently. Razzly will give you an advantage over the dwarves further into the marshes. Mini-Boss: Dwarves Magma bombs and green elements will show these guys who's boss! Focus on one pest at a time. Beyond the dwarves is what you're looking for... Boss: Hydra Make one character yellow innate and the other Razzly. DON'T use any yellow elements: They heal this beast. Use an abundance of green elements. Pick up the Humour from the Hydra, and return to Guldove. If choose to chase down Mel, talk to Orlha in the bar and the person outside the temple. Then go to the residential tower. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section C: Leave Kid _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Upon leaving kid, Korcha takes the Astral Amulet and returns it to Kid. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Return to Termina/Viper Manor _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ You'll need to find Korcha in the residential tower and talk to him. After a long conversation, you'll get Korcha's boat. Take it back to Termina. A few new characters are available. New Characters: Luccia, in Viper Manor Macha, Termina Glenn, Termina Greco, Termina _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section D: Disc One, Part Two _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 0.1: Hermit's Hideout/Into the Mist _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Hermit's Hideout *** Goal: Defeat Harle You can find Hermit's Hideout using your boat. As you approach, you'll discover that Viper got here first. Beat Harle in combat (she's a pushover). Then, leave, after talking to Radius. *** SS Invincible *** Goals: 1. Pass the tests. 2. Kill DeadHead. Get to the SS Invincible by going into the mist. As you board the pirate ships, you'll be given some tests. The only one that you may have trouble with is the captain's parrot: Polly. Don't worry about beating Fargo, either way, he knocks you out. You wake up to find the ship under attack by ghosts. Kill the people that come in your room, then run out. Explore around. Eventually, you'll come to a floor with an Inn sign on it. Go in the far right door here, and go in the vent. On the other side, the pirates hand over the key. Get downstairs and open the cellar door. Make your way upwards, and to the deck. You'll fight DeadHead. Boss: DeadHead This boss is as annoying as Lynx. White elements are the key. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 0.2: Back to the Home World _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ If you didn't save Kid: *** Guldove *** Goals: 1. Get Kid and Doc to join. 2. Obtain Astral Amulet. Just go to where Kid was. Then (Both options): *** Opassa Beach *** Goal: Find the wormhole. Walk around the beach a little. You will find a green wormhole. Use the Astral Amulet here to teleport back to the home world. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: The Water Dragon _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Arni Village *** Goal: Get to Blue Dragon Isle Talk to anyone you'd like again. To get to Blue Dragon Isle, speak with the fisherman and pay him 100 GP. ** Blue Dragon Isle *** Goals: 1. Cross the Pond 2. Defeat the band of dwarves 3. Eliminate Hi-Ho Tank 4. Receive the Ice Breath Cross the pond by hopping lillipad to lillipad. Eventually, you'll get to the end of it. Once you're there, you'll find the Fairy village being overrun by dwarves. Make your way into the cave. The chief will send a band of dwarves after you a bit after you enter. Mini-Boss: Band of Dwarves Not too hard, but not a pushover. Magma Bomb or other elements that affect multiple enemies are very helpful. Focus on one dwarf at a time, occasionally getting the whole mob of them with a bomb. Now that their gone, follow the chief as he retreats. At the bottom of the falls, you'll face off with the dwarves and their Hi-Ho Tank. Boss: Hi-Ho Tank Take out the two dwarves on foot first. Some Turn elements will help if you cast them on your party. Have some curing elements handy: the elemental blasts the tank fires are aggravating. Use all elements on the tank: not the dwarves. After the battle, you can go see the Water Dragon and obtain the Ice Breath. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: The Mountain _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Returning to another world, you must get through Mount Pyro. *** Mount Pyro *** Goals: 1. Use the Ice Breath on the lava 2. Defeat Solt and Peppor 3. Defeat Mini-Dragon 4. Challenge the Dragoon Devas Throughout this volcano you'll have to use ice breath to avoid the fiery lava. Going forward a bit, you'll run into Solt and Peppor. Mini-Boss: Solt and Peppor This time you'll learn about trap elements. If you have some trouble, just beat up on Peppor. He's busy beating Solt right now. Proceeding forward, be 100% sure to save at the record of fate. Because afterwards is... Boss: Mini-Dragon Water elements and cure are the key here. If you have a character that can use FrogPrince (Leena for example), try to pull that off. Turn elements are a helpful aid in this battle. After the battle, save yet again. Be sure to also fully heal. Boss: Dragoon Devas You're up against Karsh, Marcy, and Zoah. Focus on one, and make sure you're OK when it comes to having all elements. Use a HealAll if you find yourself low on health. That ends Mount Pyre. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 3: The Fortress _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ If you thought you were finished with bosses, then reconsider. This section is crammed with bosses, hard and easy. No Solt and Peppor to entertain you though. :-) *** Fort Dragonia *** Like Viper Manor, I'm organizing this part of the walkthrough by goals. Goals: 1. Deactivate Red Crystal 2. Deactivate Green Crystal 3. Fight Taurusoid 4. Deactivate Blue Crystal 5. Fight Giant Gloop 6. Deactivate Yellow Crystal 7. Deactivate White Crystal 8. Fight Son of a Gun 9. Deactivate Black Crystal 10. Fight Bunyip 11. Get to the center platform 12. Beat Viper 13. Fight Lynx 14. And then... Press X in front of a crystal to deactivate it. Goal 1: Deactivate Red Crystal Take the closest door on the right in the center room. At the end is a room with a statue. Press X at it. The watchkeeper always faces different directions, but he always faces north. Using compass directions, get to the right gap to deactivate the crystal. Goal 2: Deactivate the Green Crystal This section is a maze. I'll add some directions later. At the end is a crystal, but first you must fight a boss. Goal 3: Fight Taurusoid Boss: Taurusoid Equip ALL of your yellow elements before this battle. Green Trap and Turn elements will also help. Cast yellow elements left and right. Use this general attack order from Stamina 7: 1) attack #1 2) attack #2 3) attack #3 4) highest category yellow element Do this with all three characters. You should get a cycle going. The Taurusoid will usually heal himself, but watch out. He packs a punch. Goal 4: Deactivate Blue Crystal The puzzle here involves opening and closing treasure chests. The chests at each corner move the beam in different ways. Make your way to the big door you saw at the beginning. Only one obstacle remains... Goal 5: Fight Giant Gloop Boss: Giant Gloop Like the Taurusoid, Turn elements will help. Use generally the same pattern for giant gloop, except with red elements and cure elements. Goal 6: Deactivate Yellow Crystal Get to the right of the room, in the room with the "head, body, and tail" puzzle. The game identifies each character as the head, body, or tail. Use the blue carpet outside this room to get your party in the following order: Head, Body, Tail Now go outside and across a path that just appeared. Activate the switch to get a stairway to appear. Return to the room and be in this order: Tail, Body, Head Now you can proceed up the stairs you activated. There is another switch along these pathways across a path you just activated. This lowers the platform with the yellow crystal on it, allowing you to deactivate the pillar. Goal 7: Deactivate White Crystal With the first four crystals activated, a room rises into the middle of the center room. Save before going in, then dash in and fight Son of a Gun. Goal 8: Fight Son of a Gun Boss: Son of a Gun Guile helps here. Use any element, preferably not white, to deal with Son of a Gun. When he smiles, he saves energy for a powerful move. If he frowns, he'll quickly launch attacks at you. This boss battle ends quickly. Goal 9: Deactivate Black Crystal Take the elevator up. Now go to the same pillar you saw in your dream world. Goal 10: Fight Bunyip Boss: Bunyip Use physical attacks on the first form, then go full force on the 2nd, preferably using Luminare and MeteorShower. A black Trap will help. Goal 11: Get to the center platform Like in your dream, go to the center platform, and through the door at the top. Goal 12: Beat Viper Boss: Viper Keep your party healed and use some green elements. Viper is not as hard as the other bosses here. At the end of the battle, cure fully (using consumables). Goal 13: Fight Lynx Boss: Lynx No shadow this time. Use Luminare, Turn elements, MeteorShower, and whatever. Make sure to heal frequently. Use the same pattern of attacks you used for Taurusoid, except with powerful white elements. Goal 14: And then... Upon beating Lynx, a strange cinema happens. You'll understand exactly what happens later, but just accept the fact that you are now playing Lynx. Boss: Serge, Kid, and another party member Don't even try winning. Your "friends" will take you out quite easily. I won't spoil the storyline on what happens after that. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 4: Dimensional Vortex _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ You wake up as Lynx in this painted world. *** Dimensional Vortex *** Goals: 1. Get Sprigg to join 2. Meet Harle 3. Join Harle 4. Leave dimensional vortex Start out by moving upwards and stepping on the branch. A creature runs out of her house to collect it. Go into her house while she does this. She'll let you spend the night. Go down the ladder and save, then as you leave her house, Sprigg joins you. Go up to the tower and into it. Now Harle gives you a giant speech. Once it's over, she will tell you to choose your reality. A figure walks into a door on the top floor. Take the same door it did on the bottom floor (if it went left, you go left). Now you emerge on the top. The figure is on the bottom floor. Again, take the same door he does. Keep repeating until you emerge in an odd room, where Harle joins. Without pulling the lever, walk to the big pit in the floor. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 5: To Termina! _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Hydra Marshes *** Goal: Leave Hydra Marshes Just go downwards on every segment of the swamp you are in. *** Opassa Beach *** Goal: Try using the Astral Amulet Go find about where the wormhole used to be and use the Astral Amulet. *** Arni Village *** Goals: 1. Talk to Marge 2. Fight Radius After hearing the village's reactions to you being a demi-human, go talk to Serge's Mom. After the story, Radius challenges you to a fight. Boss: Radius Just use the general techniques you used when fighting Taurusoid, except no green Trap. Still use powerful yellow elements that will have had to equip on Harle, Sprigg, and yourself. After the battle, Radius joins you. *** Fossil Valley *** Goal: Go through Fossil Valley Just walk on through. I'd grab the Mythril here, as you can now forge items out of Mythril. *** Termina *** Goals: 1. Find out what happened 2. Get some new party members Have Radius in your party: It will help when it comes time to get 2 new party members. Talk to people around the town, especially the soldiers in the bar and Lisa in the back room of the store. Go to the blacksmith with Radius and talk to Zappa. He'll join, and you'll get the Smith Spirit: A very handy item. Go to the house near the end of the bridge; The one that was two stories high in Another World. Talk to Van and his father Gogh, and then a big family discussion will occur. Afterwards, Van joins. I agreed with the Frozen Flame part to get him to join. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 6: Shadow Forest (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Goals: 1. Obtain the mushroom 2. Get Funguy in your party Note: you can't push the rock to closethe hole in Another World before you save the guy trapped by the monster in Home World or else you won't be able to get the Mushroom because the rock will be covering the hole and no monster will exist, so you will not be able to get Funguy to join. Go through the forest to a hole in the tree. A monster guards a hole deeper into the tree. Fight him, and the person trapped inside gives you a mushroom. Leave the tree. Look around the area that's right before the area with the tree, and you'll find a small waterfall with a cave inside it. Talk to the man inside, and give him the mushroom. After he joins you as Funguy, get his treasure. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 7: My Favorite Alien (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** El Nido Triangle *** Goal: Get the Star Fragment At the bottom of the El Nido Triangle is a treasure chest. After 4 battles, you can get the Star Fragment inside. *** Sky Dragon Isle *** Goals: 1. Defeat Megastarky 2. Catch Starky At the top of the pyramid is a treasure chest. Open it. Megastarky comes after you. Boss: Megastarky Use any elements except white. Megastarky isn't much of a challenge. Now catch Starky by pressing X. Chase him around, and when you catch him, he will join you. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 8: Investigation _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Viper Manor *** Goal: Get Norris to Join After talking to the guard blocking the docks in Termina, go to Viper Manor. Go down the well, up the ladder, and into the door beyond the jail. Talk to Norris. *** Marbule *** (Marbule is a town on an island.) Goal: Find out about the S. S. Zelebes Talk to Toma twice, and ask him about the Dead Sea. *** S. S. Zelebes *** I'll organize this section by objectives. Goals: 1. Find Fargo in his quarters 2. Find the Sage in the room by the hold 3. Watch Sneff's show 4. Play the compass game with Fargo 5. Go to the inn 6. Have Sneff turn you into cats 7. Steal the Handle 8. Get changed back 9. Challenge Fargo to a rematch 10. Chase the Sage 11. Fight the Sage 12. Get Sneff to join 13. Go to Nikki's boat 1. Find Fargo in his quarters Enter the door with a skull and crossbones over it. Talk to Fargo. 2. Find the Sage in the room by the hold Enter the door by the hold. Let the Sage by, then leave the room. After the Sage goes through, talk to the person blocking the door. 3. Watch Sneff's show Go into the show room by the dressing room and walk up to the stage. 4. Play the compass game with Fargo Talk to Fargo. He challenges you to the compass game. No matter what you will lose, and Fargo will get your boat. Compass Game Trick: Pause while the compass is spinning. If the spinner is between south and west, then press X as soon as you unpause. It should land on North or East. 5. Go to the inn Enter the inn, and you will see an odd occurrence. 6. Have Sneff turn you into cats Go back to the show room. Walk to the stage, and Sneff will turn you into cats. Run out of the room once you become cats. As cats, go investigate the room the ladder in the inn leads to. Fargo cheats when he plays, and cheats to be sure Sneff doesn't win. That's really all you need to know, but you can go to the Magical Dreamers ship as well as entering the kitchen as long as you're a cat. 7. Steal the Handle Go back up the ladder. The innkeeper will be asleep. Grab the handle that he uses to crank the magnet. Now the game's fair. 8. Get changed back In the show room, go through the hole in the thing that looks like a fireplace. Talk to Sneff, and he will change you back. 9. Challenge Fargo to a rematch Go talk to Fargo, and challenge him to a rematch. He'll lose on his first spin. You now have access to the hold, as well as your boat back. 10. Chase the Sage In the hold, keep following the Sage. Go through the exact door the Sage goes through. 11. Fight the Sage Eventually the Sage stops and fights. Boss: Sage of Marbule Lynx has a severe disadvantage in this battle. Equip all healing on your other two characters. Have Lynx use his techs before he dies. Use the same strategy the sage does: Cast a turn, then an element of the opposite color (i. e. TurnBlue then MagmaBomb). Try not to have another Innate black character in your group. After the battle, the Sage gives you the Fiddler Crab. Use this on the map where you see Dead Sea in green letters. 12. Get Sneff to join Go to the casino and watch Sneff win the compass game. He will then join you in his dressing room. 13. Go to Nikki's boat The person on the mast will now allow you to get to the Magical Dreamers boat. Go to the bottom room there. As long as you agree to help, Irenes will join. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 9: Masamune: Sword of Evil _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Death's Door *** Use the Fiddler Crab where you see Dead Sea in green letters on the world map to get to Death's Door. Goal: Proceed into the cave As you go into the cave, Radius will notice the Masamune. Tough, if you proceed you'll go mad. You'll have to leave for now. *** Hermit's Hideout *** Goal: Get Garai's Keepsake As you enter, Radius will get the Keepsake and give it to you. Be sure to collect items from his home. Note: If you cooled of the patch of hot ground with the Ice Breath in Another World, there will be a plant here. If Poshul is in your party, he will dig up a new character. *** Isle of the Damned *** Goals: 1. Defeat Garai 2. Get the Einlanzer Make your way through the Isle, using the Garai Keepsake on the mirror-like objects. At Garai's grave, you fight Garai. Boss: Garai Garai usually uses tech skills, so use Strengthen, Weaken, and other similar elements. Use Harle's MoonShine tech to avoid being eliminated by the techs. Afterwards, you get the Einlanzer _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 10: A Forgotten Future _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Death's Door *** Goal: Get to the Dead Sea You can now proceed through Death's Door. *** Highway Ruins *** Goal: Defeat Highwayman Proceed through the highway ruins, which begins the deja vu for Chrono Trigger players. Boss: Highwayman Have some BlackOuts on hand to cure darkness. At the beginning, use all physical attacks. Then the highwayman will use an attack that causes darkness. Use every color of elements except black: even if you use a TurnWhite element. If the field effect is all black, the highwayman will devastate you with a Rampage attack. *** City Ruins *** Goal: Find out about Lavos There's a tower in the city ruins. Climb it, and go inside. Press X at the red button. Norris activates the display, and you'll find out about Lavos. Afterwards, proceed onwards. *** Tower of Gheddon *** Goals: 1. Obtain Station Pass 2. Obtain Medical Book 3. Follow the Ghost Children 4. Go through the vortex 5. Fight Miguel On the third floor, go to the right. Go to the end of the room. You find out that you need a Station Pass to proceed to Arris Dome. Go back and talk to the ghoul near the beginning of the area. He goes up the stairway, where you will find a station pass. Go to Arris Dome. Most of it is cut off by rubble, but you can grab the medical book. Now go through the passageway on the left side of the upper floor in the main room. Follow the ghost children, avoiding the bigger ghosts. The children lead you to the rest of Arris Dome, where there is a vortex that takes you to another area. Save and proceed. At the end is the broken Nadia's Bell. Read the plaque, and then fight Miguel after hearing of more stuff from Chrono Trigger. Boss: Miguel A tough boss, indeed. Don't even try putting a second Innate black character in your group. I used Starky, Irenes, and Lynx for this boss battle. Use powerful black elements in this battle. Pulling off a Frog Prince is possible. Harle's MoonShine may help. When Miguel sags at about 1,600 HP of damage, finish him quick, or he'll use Holy Light. Make sure to spread Revives and HealAll/RecoverAlls in this battle. Alternate Boss Strategy (by AzSkier04@aol.com): use Starky and give him four or five "Magnegate" elements, sold in Guldove. When he casts it on a party member, all of Miguels magic (Holy Dragon Sword) will miss. Having more will allow you to cast it again when it wears out. After the battle, fate makes a decision to destroy the Dead Sea and its forgotten future. Fortunately, the Sky Dragon saves you and returns you to Marbule. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 11: A Portal Reopened _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Now the wormhole on Opassa Beach is reopened, and there is also an additional wormhole in Hydra Marshes leading back to the dimensional vortex. Note: If you show a character to his self in the other world (show Zappa to Zappa, etc.), they may give each other gifts. *** Termina *** Goal: Get ZOAH or Karsh to accompany you to Viper Manor Troops have taken over Termina. Go to the bar and the keeper unlocks the door to the left. Go through the door on the left, and through the secret door on the back left wall of that room. In the room, ZOAH and Karsh approach you and give you a Tear of Hate. One of them accompanies you to Viper Manor. It's best to choose ZOAH, since his lvl. 7 tech skill is in the Manor. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 12: Viper Manor... Again _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Note: If you put ZOAH in the front of your party and open the treasure chest in his room, you'll get his level 7 tech skill! *** Viper Manor *** I'm organizing this by goals. Goals: 1. Find Norris 2. Slow the water down 3. Kill the Roachster 4. Release the Prisoners 5. Defeat Hell's Cook 6. Defeat Grobyc 7. Defeat Guillot Twice 8. Escape 1. Find Norris Enter Viper Manor (The Porre troops recognize him). Go to the parlor on the 1st floor, and he will give you the prison key. 2. Slow the water down Enter the sewers through the kitchen or hallway vents. The current is too fast. In the room you fall into are two barrels that you can push. They will form a bridge leading to the control room, where you can tighten the valve to slow the water. 3. Kill the Roachster Enter the sewers through the kitchen vent and turn at the second right. Tighten both valves, then head through the dam that you can. At the other dam, go up the ladder and open the valve, and then fight the Roachster. Boss: Roachster A Frog Prince is easy to pull off, and it does a good amount of damage. Use elements frequently. If you're prepared, the Roachster is as good as squashed. 4. Release the Prisoners Go up a ladder, and the prisoners will be released. 5. Fight Hell's Cook Go to the room where Norris joined you in the Home World. You will fight the cook to save Riddel. Boss: Hell's Cook Use elements like Ice Blast and use some powerful elements and techniques. Zoah's Toss & Spike will help a lot. 6. Fight Grobyc Proceed to the throne room after saving Riddel. Boss: Grobyc Use RecoverAll and Heal frequently. Lynx and Zoah's techniques will devastate Grobyc. 7. Fight Guillot Twice After you fight Grobyc, you'll fight this mad machine. Boss: Guillot Both times the battle won't last long. Very easy. Just make sure you healed with consumables after Grobyc! 8. Escape As you run away, Grobyc joins you. You'll be out of there, and have a boat. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 13: Hermit's Hideout/The Pearly Gates _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Hermit's Hideout *** Goal: Be Rescued by Polly & Fargo Go talk to those in the hideout. Riddel will join. Serge then invades with Kid. Fargo will help you escape via his bird Polly. *** SS Invincible *** Goal: Get New Characters On the Invincible, you will see some scenes. Viper, Fargo, and Marcy joins. ZOAH or Karsh also joins (whoever you didn't pick). *** The Pearly Gates *** Goal: Get through all the talk! Several scenes will trigger at the Dead Sea Ruins, a.k.a. the Pearly Gates. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 14: The Second Tear _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Go to Guldove (Home World) and try to enter the temple. Now go to Guldove (Another World). Orlha fights you. Boss: Orlha A Frog Prince and good elements will finish this girl off. Now proceed to the temple and get the Dragon Emblem. Go back to the Home World and show the emblem to the guard at the entrance of the temple. Inside you will discover that Steena has the Dragon Tear and will give it up if you gain the approval of the 6 dragon gods. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 15: Song of Marbule _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** SS Zelebes *** Goals: 1. Show Fargo to Fargo 2. Play a Song 3. Gain the Invincible Technique Have Fargo meet Fargo aboard the SS Zelebes. Several scenes will trigger. After several scenes, Fargo gets his level 7 technique. *** Marbule *** Goal: Defeat all the monsters. The scene shifts to Marbule. The goal is self-explanatory, right? After the monsters are gone, the Black Dragon in Another World awakens. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 16: The Dragons Six _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Note: All dragons have a type of plate you can steal from them. There is also one trap element that will trap each dragon's element. These traps can be bought in Marbule after you perform the optional Song of Marbule quest. The Water Dragon: Go to Water Dragon Isle and fight the Dragon. Boss: Water Dragon Steal from the Water Dragon (with Fargo) after it has taken around 2,000 HP to steal the Blue Plate. Lay a trap for Iceberg. Use a Frog Prince if you have any trouble. The Earth Dragon: First you have to sink into the quicksand in the Home World. Find the object that blocks the path, and then leave via the sand boil. The people there will move the object after some time. After they move it, the person where the Rockroach was blocking gives you some Explosives. Go into the next room. Blast the Rockroach to the right with the explosives. Fight the one that is moving when he's right by the edge. Then push him or use explosives. Fight the final Rockroach and push him. The sand boil in the middle bursts up and leads to the Earth Dragon. Boss: Earth Dragon Steal the Yellow Plate at the initiation of the fight. Use a trap to catch Earthquake. Heal frequently, and keep attacking. The Green Dragon: The Green Dragon rests on Gaia's Navel in the Home World. To get there, obtain the Ancient fruit from a Beeba in the Hydra Marshes (up the log) in Another World. Go to the same area in Home World, and a Beeba will attack. Talk to the other Beebas. One tells you how to tame the Wingape. Do so, and he will fly you to the "Ancient Ground." Once at Gaia's Navel, eliminate all the monsters. Go back to where you landed and you will fight the Tyrano. Mini-Boss: Tyrano A Pterodact fights along with the Tyrano in this fight. Throw all your attacks at the Tyrano, and you'll win before you know it. Afterwards, Leah runs to investigate the growl and finds... Boss: Green Dragon After about 500 HP of damage, steal some green plate from the dragon. Set a trap for Carnivore. Just fight him the way you did the other Dragons. Zoah's Toss&Spike can hurt the dragon a lot. The Fire Dragon: In Another World, go to Mount Pyre. A new cave opened up in the area with magma waterfalls. Beyond this is your friend from before, the "Kid Dragon." Boss: Fire Dragon The battle starts out the same as the one against the dragon before did. However, after some damage, the dragon shows his true self. Immediately steal the Red Plate and lay a trap for Volcano. At this point also have Fargo charge with his Invincible attack to do some serious damage. Have some Ointments to heal burns. You will need lots of HealAlls and RecoverAlls. The Black Dragon: Complete the Song of Marbule quest before facing off with this dragon. However, if when you try to complete the Song of Marbule quest you cannot because you didn't visit the dressing room on the Magical Dreamers boat after talking to the Sage, then you will have to just walk up to the pool where the Black Dragon is sleeping and press X. Boss: Black Dragon You can steal the Black Plate from it at the beginning of the battle. Set a trap for FreeFall. Fight the dragon like you did the others. Use level 7 techs and powerful elements of any color. The Sky Dragon: With all the other dragon's relics, the Sky Dragon will now fight you at his Isle in Another World. Boss: Sky Dragon As the Dragon casts Magnify, cast Diminish and steal the White Plate. At any other time in the battle use Diminish when you need healing. After 1,500 damage, be sure to lay a trap to catch the UltraNova element. Otherwise, you can go on and die by this devastating attack. Again, buy traps in Marbule (After Song of Marbule?). _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 17: Back to the Fortress _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Guldove (Home World) *** Go to the temple. Steena joins and gives you the Dragon Tear. *** Fort Dragonia (Home World) *** Goals: 1. Defeat Dark Serge 2. Switch Lynx with Serge Upon entering, the Dragon Tear unlocks the whole fortress. In the room where the white crystal was is... Boss: Dark Serge An Ultra Nova can devastate Dark Serge. This is basically like another battle against Lynx, except you are controlling Lynx. Equipping Black Plate on a party member will do a great deal of good. Use Lynx's Forever Zero and other techs. Having an innate white character in the party is a bad idea. Note: Any level 6 trap element will work. Note: If you got the Big Egg at Fossil Valley (Another World) you can place it in the incubators on the bottom floor to get a new character. Go to where you became Lynx, and you'll be good old Serge again. Remember to re-allocate your elements. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 18: Riddle Me This (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Earth Dragon Isle (Another World) *** After defeating the Earth Dragon in the Home World, go to the Isle in another world and proceed to where the Earth Dragon was. Boss: Criosphinx If you answer all of the riddles right, you won't have to face the wrath of this boss. Answer riddles by casting elements of a certain color on the Criosphinx. If you get the last riddle right, he also won't fight. The answer to the last riddle for me was a white element. Good luck. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 19: Murderer! (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Isle of the Damned (Another World) *** Go to where Garai's tombstone would be in the Home World. Take Karsh with you, and you'll meet up with two familiar people: Boss: Solt and Peppor No lesson this time. If you cast powerful elements, the warriors will prove themselves powerless. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 20: Another Soul Possessed (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Forbidden Isle (Home World) *** Just off the main continent is a little island with smoke coming from it. This is the Forbidden Isle. Go there with Riddel and talk to the man in the house on the Isle. Show him the MementoPendant that you get from the Murderer! Adventure. Boss: Dario Possessed by the Masamune, Dario will fight you. Immediately cast Riddel's level 5 technique. Have Riddel equipped with the Black Plate. Fight this battle as if it were Lynx. White elements, and whatever else necessary. Alternate Boss Strategy (By firstname.lastname@example.org (Erica Z)): Equip Lynx with a Black Plate. During the battle, only use plain attacks. Use no elements whatsoever. Two of your characters will die, but Lynx will stay alive. As long as you only attack, Dario follows this attack pattern: Attack - Black Element - Attack - Black Element As long as you only attack, you should have no trouble staying alive. Alternate Boss Stategty (by Slosh120@aol.com): Before the fight fill your Element Grid with nothing but Red and Green ATTACK Elements, it will be a long fight but no healing elements should be nessecarry. To start the cycle with out damage have your first character that attacks use 2 or 3 stamina points and then cast either a red or green attack element. For the rest of the battle attack using any combination of 6 stamina points and use the last point to cast a red or green element. Dario will use his turn to counter your attacks, his attack depends on what you do, If you.... 1) cast a green attack element, he responds by casting LoRes 2) cast a red attack element, he responds by casting Numble So if every 7stamina points you end with a red or green attack element he will never physically attack and will only cast LoRes or Numble, which have no effect because he will not be able to attack. a white attack element is answered with Conductarod will usually drop an average character a black attack element is answered with a Recover All to himself a blue attack element gets your character Weakened and a yellow attack element gets a Bat's Eye As you can see red and green elements are the way to go. Alternate Boss Strategy (by email@example.com (Adam Ward)): Fortunately, this strategy does NOT involve the Black Plate, so for the people who don't have the Black Plate, they won't have to worry. :) Anyway, take your strongest physical character (mine at the time was the main character), give him/her NOTHING BUT BLUE ATTACK ELEMENTS. This strategy is actually more effective when the character you're using is the only one alive. Or, you can equip all of the characters with blue attack elements. But anyway, use two Level 3 attacks (or whatever you prefer), then use your strongest available blue element. I mainly had IceBlast's equipped. When you use the blue attack element, this will cause Dario to cast Weaken on the character who used the element. The beauty of this is that using Weaken takes up Dario's turn! You can keep using the characters blue elements while still attacking with Dario doing nothing but cast Weaken! It's amazing how easy this is. Alternate Bos Strategy (by firstname.lastname@example.org ): if you keep attacking him on every turn using red elements, he only counters with 'numble'.However , you have to attack him using the red element on every turn for every character and you cannot do anything else.Beating him is easy using this method. After the battle, the Masamune finds a new owner... YOU! Hold it, don't panic. The Masamune final turns back into a good sword. Now it calls itself: The Mastermune! Dario promises to begin the reconstruction on Viper Manor, and gives Riddel her level 7 tech skill. Note to Clear Confusion: Some often wonder what the voices in the Mastermune mean. In the year 12,000 BC, there was a magical floating kingdom called The Kingdom of Zeal. Magic flourished there, because the people were getting energy from Lavos through the Mammon Machine. There were three creatures here: Masa, Mune, and their sister. The original Masamune was made from Masa and Mune's spirit, so to say. The Masamune's attitude was shaped around that of it's owner. Henceforth, someone VERY evil had to possess the Masamune before the events in Chrono Cross. After this event, Masa and Mune try to give up on their being a sword, until their sister joins them. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section E: Disc Two _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: The Sea of Eden _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Dead Sea Ruins *** In the Home World, go to the Dead Sea Ruins and go to one of the Fate Distortions. Enter it. *** Sea of Eden *** Goals: 1. Activate Past, Present, and Future 2. Fight Vita Go to each island and press A at the Book of Fate there. Afterwards, you'll challenge Vita, who determines her form based on whatever Island you visited last. Boss: Vita Fight away. A Saints will assist. Keep healing and you shall win. *** Chronopolis *** Goals: 1. Fight the PolisPolice 2. Enable the Elevator 3. View some Info 4. Find the Chief 5. Get the Keycard 6. Challenge FATE Shortly after you enter, the PolisPolice will fight. Boss: PolisPolice Pull of any elements that you might be able to. This battle is very easy. Climb the stairs to the second floor. Go to the left door, and press the button by the ghost. The elevator is now reactivated. Go to the top floor and go into the left door. The ghosts there tell of their experiment, and that the chief is missing. Go talk to the ghost on the stairs in front of the 3rd floor door. You will have to use the 4th floor door to get there. He tells you that the chief is overlooking the sea. Go to the harbor on F1, save, and talk to the chief. He goes to start the experiment. On F4 go to the left door. After the secrets of the Records of Fate are revealed, go to the left. A Combot blocks the path. Fight him, and get the keycard in the chest behind him. Save at the harbor and then go down to the basement. Fight the monsters blocking the path. Go to the left of the door and press X. The system identifies Serge. Go into the door and fight FATE, a.k.a. Dark Serge. Boss: FATE Attempt to steal from FATE. I'm not sure what a FreeFall trap would do. FATE performs a countdown. When the countdown reaches 0, make sure Serge is at element level 8. After FATE's countdown 0 attack, have each character perform a level one RecoverAll. Then use an attack to put Serge's element level back to 8, then use Saints, which will do a massive amount of damage. If you have the Black Plate, equip it now and the battle will be made easier. Alternate Boss Strategy (by Gamr316@aol.com): First get Glenn in your party.(Glenn helps you put damage on FATE with his twin einlazers) Get Glenn equiped with two einlazers and Serge with the mastermune. After FATE does 2 countdown attacks use healall. Finally get down to where you can use saints (after using recoverall or photonbeam ect.). If FATE isn't dead just use x-strike with Glenn and Serge and FATE doesn't stand a chance. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: The Chrono Cross (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** Divine Dragon Falls - Another World *** Go to the waterfall behind the lake near Arni Village. You'll have to enter from the left side of the lake. Although the location isn't labeled yet, press X by the falls to get in. Climb the falls and place the Tear of Love and Tear of Hate on the alters. You can get the Tear of Love from the Back to the Fortress sequence described under the Disc One section. It can be completed in disc 2, though. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 3: The Flaming Orphanage (Optional) _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Go back in time, to the event that changed Kid's life forever... *** Hermit's Hideaway *** Go to Hermits Hideaway and speak to Kid. The Chrono Cross sends you to save her from herself... Note: The Mastermune can also be used to go back into Kid's past. I'm not sure if you have to have it equipped or not. Unlike using the Chrono Cross, you will take all three party members back in time instead of just Serge. However, the power of the sword slowly gives away, and you lose party members from your group temporarily as you proceed. *** Lucca's House *** Yet more deja vu for Chrono Trigger players. Fight the Lava-Boys in every room, Then save the children: First Room: One child beneath the table, another behind the clock. Second Room: One Child behind the plant Balcony: One kid on the balcony Room to the right of stairs: One kid under the bed Go to the room up the right of the stairs and grab the Ice Gun on the wall. Go Into Lara's room and into the secret passage the kid told you about. Using the Ice Gun to put out any flame, proceed until you see a familiar person, one, last, time. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 4: Tower from Another World _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ *** El Nido Triangle - Another World *** Go into the El Nido Triangle with Starky and red elements equipped. You must have completed My Favorite Alien by now, if not, go complete it. Go down to where the Star Fragment was in the Home World and fight the monster by it. Boss: Royal Jelly Only red elements will hurt him, so equip as many red elements as possible. If you aren't ready for the fight, run away. Afterwards, Starky enters the spaceship and puts an Anti-Grav device on your boat. *** Terra Tower *** Organized by Goals 1. Defeat the yellow doll 2. Defeat the red doll 3. Speak to the Prophet of Time 4. Defeat the green doll 5. Defeat the black doll 6. Defeat the white doll 7. Defeat the blue doll 8. Defeat the TimeDevourer Note: If you have traps for any summons, you can use them on the dolls of that color to trap the element. 1. Defeat the yellow doll Boss: Terrator If you don't have a trap for Golem, just keep the field effect all yellow. Heal often. 2. Defeat the red doll After releasing several bridges and climbing stuff, fight the Pyrotor. Boss: Pyrotor Don't be fooled by him curing with tablets. Immediately use a non-red element after he heals to prevent him from pulling off RedWolf, unless you set a trap for it. Heal often. 3. Speak to the Prophet of Time After some ladder-climbing, the scene will be like you're in Viper Manor... The area appears as Viper Manor. Go to the ladder and speak to the prophet on Your way out. 4. Defeat the Green Doll Upon leaving the bridge, another door opens, allowing you to fight... Boss: Anemotor Set a trap for Carnivor, and fight the way you've fought the rest of the dolls. 5. Defeat the Black Doll Save at the Record of Fate. Go to the left and avoid the enemies and get to the teleporter at the end of the area. Boss: Gravitor If you have the Black Mail, equip it. Fight the same way you did the other dolls. 6. Defeat the White Doll After saving, go to the right. Run against the wind and proceed while the air is peaceful. Boss: Luxator Same as Gravitor, except White Mail instead of Black Mail. You can also trap UltraNova... I think. 7. Defeat the Blue Doll After the barrier goes down, save and go through the door. Boss: Aquator Use BluePlate and try to pull off a Salamander. Orcha will work well here. Set an additional trap for Deluge. Use a RedField to make pulling off elements easier. 8. Defeat the TimeDevourer Proceed on. Boss: TimeDevourer Before you start, let me tell you that this is a 30+ min. battle. Easy as cheese, though. Equip all your heal elements and use pure physical attacks, maybe a summon once in a while. DON'T cast a summon when it is the same color as the TimeDevourer's innate though. Heal whenever the boss throws attacks at you. Seriously, this is the easiest boss since the MamaKomodo. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 5: The Final Encounter _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Goal: Defeat the TimeDevourer Bad Ending: Play the TimeDevourer as if it were a normal boss. Rainbow equipment helps a lot. Otherwise, cure spells will be your way to survive. Good Ending: If you got the Chrono Cross, equip it on Serge. Equip one color of every element in each player's level one slot. Here I will use the names Zoah, Fargo, and Serge to represent the party. Get Serge up to level 8 and the other characters up to at least level 2. Perform whatever actions necessary to get the TimeDevourer to use a yellow element. After the yellow element, do as follows: Fargo: red element Zoah: green element Serge: blue element Fargo: black element Zoah: white element Serge: one level 1 (weakest) attack, Chrono Cross If you have trouble pulling getting the TimeDevourer to cast a yellow element, then do the following: Fargo: yellow element Zoah: red element Serge: defend Fargo: defend Zoah: defend The TimeDevourer should cast a yellow element. This time, the figure in the barrier above TimeDevourer lives instead of dies... _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section F: New Game + _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ As you scroll through the credits, it becomes hard to believe that that is all. Well, it isn't. You now can explore the world over again, in a New Game +. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: About _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Once you beat the game, you are given the option to save. Once you save, your star level will be in yellow text, to show that you have completed the game. Load your game, and choose to continue the game from before you fought the Devourer, or select New Game + to start all over... With everything except your summon elements and several key items. Later in the game, when you get the Chrono Cross, you can also retrieve all of your characters you have ever had in any number of New Game +s or your original game. To do this, simply go to the Dimensional Vortex via Hydra Marshes and use the Chrono Cross (in Sprigg's house?). _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: Extra Features _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ You start your New Game + with a Time Shifter and a Relief Charm. The Time Shifter allows you to change the speed of the game. You can speed it up by pressing R2, and slow it down by using R1. The Relief Charm makes it so you don't always have to have Serge/Lynx in your group. You also wake up with the Time Egg in your hands, so you can fight the TimeDevourer at any time to see special endings. Oh, by the way. Did you have trouble feeding the dragons at Viper Manor 100 times? I did. Using slow motion, this feat becomes possible. And you don't die from a heart attack, either. And also... If you ever stumbled upon a little place called the Bend of Time (Go to the small islands south of the main continent and press X, the area is not labeled until you find it), you remember that there was a door there that was locked and never to be opened until the time is right. Well, the time is right. And I thought the Chrono Trigger deja vu was over... In this room is a monster that orders you to do 3 laps. From the door, run around the room three times clockwise, staying by the railing. Each time you do a lap, you here a noise. After you complete this exercise, a much greater challenge awaits. Boss: Mystical Knights Ozzie, Slash, and Flea! Back from Chrono Trigger, Magus's friends are ready to fight the night away! You should be ready to, too. Don't underestimate these bosses: They are VERY strong. If you have Sprigg's Forget-Me-Not-Pot, equip it on her. If she delivers the final blow, you can dopplegang these villains (or use them in the Grand Slam!). Start off by focusing all attacks on Ozzie. Rainbow equipment and items that reduce the duration of status effects will help. Use only physical attacks, then a ForeverZero when Ozzie sags (or beat him up with Sprigg). If you haven't figured it out, target Flea next. Then go for Slash, and you'll win without much struggle. Alternate Strategy: By Dharkshade@aol.com When fighting Ozzie, Flea, and Slash, give Red Brooches to everyone you can and make sure that someone wearing a Red Brooch has some Ointment Elements, to cure Berserk status. Then you can just wait out Ozzie's MaxDefense, which puts the trio to sleep as well as rendering them immune to attack. If you can withstand Berserk and cure everyone quickly, you don't have to worry about waking the three up- you can heal, use a ____Field element to set up a summon, or use Strengthen and whatnot to power up.. And for the love of god, KILL FLEA FIRST!!! That androgynous freak is about the only one you honestly need to worry about. Also Pilfer/Pillage/Snatch from the hermaphrodite for Flea's Vest, you get Ozzie's Pants and the Slasher as rewards afterwards. Ah, the memories... :P the Pants are the strongest helmet in the game, but they make you Blind, Afraid, and Dizzy. Maybe someone has a problem with flatulence? Now the monster has you guess a number of laps. If you're right, he gives you the Dreamer's Sarong, which will increase your element power by 8 at the beginning of a battle! _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 3: Endings _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Here are all of the special endings I have heard of. I'll add detail as I get to the endings. Ending #1: Programmer's Hideout Before you talk to Leena on the pier at the beginning of the game, and if Poshul isn't in your party. Go behind the scenes to meet all of the people who made this game! Note: There is a mysterious door that is completely locked in the programmer's ending. If you are 100% sure (no rumors) how to open it, I'd love to know! Ending #2: All Hail, General Kid! After you go through the vortex and before you infiltrate Viper Manor. In this ending, Kid acquired the Frozen Flame as she goes off to Viper Manor alone... Ending #3: Comedy Act After invading the Manor and before you go to the dimensional vortex. This ending is hilarious! I won't tell you any more... Ending #4: Nikki's Concert Same as #3, except Nikki and Razzly must be in your party. Put on a concert! It's that simple. Ending #5: Retirement Before rescuing Riddel from Viper Manor and after you can control Lynx. Retire and go live in Marbule. Ending #6: Just Give Up After rescuing Riddel and before Harle leaves after getting to the Pearly Gates. What would've happened if Lynx had never gone to Hermit's Hideaway to see how Viper was doing... Ending #7: Records of Fate Before defeating FATE and after Harle leaves. A lame ending. Ending #8: Just like ending #7, except you must have the Mastermune. In this ending, you see what happens with Dario alive. Ending #9: The Dragon's Revenge Beat the game before getting the Chrono Cross but when you are able to go to Terra Tower. In this ending, the TimeDevourer helps the dwarves in destroying all of the humans. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section G: Characters _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Here is how to get every character to join you.

Make sure you have a rainbow shell with you. If you don't have one, there's one at the abandoned trading cart in Arni (Another World). You'll find out that you need a better hammer. Go to Marbule (Home World) and go to the cave where the Black Dragon would be. You can buy the Master Hammer here from someone for 10,000 gold! Equip Zappa with the Master Hammer, and go talk to the Zappa in Another World. You can now buy rainbow equipment! _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Shiny Material _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Whenever you defeat a monster with a summon spell, that creature turns into a shiny material instead of giving spoils. You can only get shiny materials once you are able to forge rainbow items. For example, you destroy 3 Alphabats with the GrimReaper summon, and then get 3 of the corresponding shiny black material (Shiny Soot). The shiny materials are listed here: Summon Color-Shiny Material White - Shiny Salt Yellow - Shiny Sand Red - Shiny Ember Green - Shiny Leaf Blue - Shiny Dew Black - Shiny Soot Basically, to get shiny salt, defeat an enemy with Saints, for shiny sand with ThundaSnake, etc. A good place to get shiny materials is the Bend of Time (The little cluster of islands: sail up to it and press X). Using the YellowField, RedField, GreenField, and BlueField will help out A LOT (there is no WhiteField or BlackField...). Also, if you're playing a New Game +, the Dreamers Sarong (from behind the locked door at the Bend of Time, you get it after doing everything inside that door) will stop you from accidentally killing enemies when you were only trying to get your element level up (The Sarong starts you out at level 8). Here's some hints: All elements except white/black: Go to the pillars closer to the door, they tend to have less and weaker enemies. Equip Serge/Lynx with two Dreamer's Scarves. Equip the people who will cast the summons have a Dreamer's Sarong and, of course, the element. Allocate every Field element (of all 4 colors) onto Serge/Lynx for his level 2 area of his grid. Start off a battle by casting the field, then cast the element. White/Black: Equip non-attack elements of white and black (RecoverAll and Genius, for example) onto the level 1 area of everyone's grid. Equip everyone with a Dreamer's Scarf except the white or black innate person who will cast the summon. Equip him/her with a Dreamer's Sarong. Start off the battle having the character who will use the summon cast his spell of the summon color. Then do the same with the other two characters. By now, the summoning character should have enough stamina to do a weak attack and cast a summon. It's easiest to do this on the pillars closest to the entrance. Those enemies aren't only weaker and greater in numbers, they also tend to not use elements that often. It's easiest to get shiny material in a New Game + because of the Dreamer's Sarong. I did obtain 3 Prism Mails through some struggle in a normal game, though. NOTE: You get the Field elements as spoils from the bosses in Terra Tower. You get level 8 summons of every color as spoils from each of the six dragon gods. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section I: Lists _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Element List _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Quick List: Name -

Obviously, if you're fighting something like a dragon, that will only cast spells of his own color, the effect is very small (about 20 extra damage). Some enemies, like Dark Serge, will cast spells of different elements, and rarely even opposite color. I think the effect of having the opposite color makes do about double damage. Once you get imbued, the effect is very easy to notice. The better the sigil, the more elements it will work with...

This section tells what enemies give what elements. Red Elements: Inferno - Radius, Tourminators (Mt. Pyre) RedWolf - Hotdiggity in Mount Pyre (Home World) Volcano - Tragedienne* Blue Elements: Deluge - Water Dragon Iceberg - Water Dragon FrogPrince - Water Dragon (when getting Ice Breath) Yellow Elements: Earthquake - Solt & Peppor (Isle of the Damned) Golem - Centaurpedes in Hydra Marshes (Another World) ThundaStorm - Solt & Peppor (Isle of the Damned) Green Elements: Carnivore - Green Dragon Tornado - Tragedienne* Sonja - PreyMantis in Gaia's Navel (Home World) Black Elements: BlackHole - Tragedienne* MotherShip - ShadowCats in Fossil Valley (Home World, after Dimensional Vortex) White Elements: UltraNova - Sky Dragon, Luxator Unicorn - Dodo in Fossil Valley (Home World), Luxator * Tragedienne - These monsters appear in the Tower of Geddon and announce what spell they cast before the battle. Special information for trapping from certain monsters: Solt & Peppor (Isle of the Damned) - Got 10 earthquakes & 2 thundastorms: Here's how I did it. First, make sure you equip as many single and multiple character heals as possible, then reason for that I'll explain. Next, and obviously equip as many trap quakes and you want and spread it across your characters so you won't get caught off gaurd in case one constantly misses with their attacks and doesn't build up the slots quickly enough. You'll only need one set of trap thunda since its not used that often by Peppor/tall one (I always forget which is which) and you'll eventually want to get rid of him and focus on solt, otherwise they'll be too powerful and it won't work. Now for the battle, the enemies and bosses in the game have a general pattern of attack and Solt & Peppor's is Attack, Strengthen/Hi Res, Earthquake, earthquake, thundastorm. Sometimes the pattern goes without the Strenthen/Hi Res. For the 1st round, have your characters attack one character, I chose Peppor 'cuz he uses the more powerful tstorm and his pattern is less predictable, until they reached slot 5. then use trap quake immediately. Then defend until they use the first quake. Then trap quake or if you're not confident use trap thundastorm, because peppor uses it right after solt's quake and you might not be fast enough to trap tstorm as well. Next, repeat the pattern of attacking and trapping, but with a warning; make sure to don't get greedy and watch your hp carefully to heal/recover/cure all whenever needed because you WILL get hit and get hit hard for a few rounds till you kill off one of them. Even then, you get hit often by quake 'cuz solt uses it consecutively in a round with no break. Also, their attacks will accumulate damage. Still, don't heal right away. Wait till you're low then one heal all should recoup most of your party's hp. You can throw in a low level non-yellow element, tablets are good, to mix up the field color since the traps will accelerate the field being one color. I suggest doing this because the field will turn yellow before you know it and although S&P aren't that strong, their quake usually does only avg. of 30+ damage, Karsh is especially vulnerable to them. You can use revive too if you made a mistake. Now, once you've killed of Peppor you must be saying "even if I just use only weak hits, Solt'll eventually die before I can rack up the elements." I used to think that too. Here's where stocking up on healing elements is really necessary. When you heal your party only one elments that heal the entire party, and use the single member heals except consummables , i.e. heal, cure, cure+ ON THE ENEMY, in this case Solt, when their low-on-hp/about to die animations shows. That way you can extend the battle as long as 1: the enemy keeps using the element you wish to trap. Some only use it few times, I think. But many seem to have any unlimited supply 2: you run out of elements yourself, in which case you can abruptly end the fight with a tech since you know the enemy is close to death anyway. 3: till you're happy with your gains, again the fight. You should have one person cast the trap and the others defend to prevent killing him too quickly. At this point you may want to shy away from strong attacks in case you "accidentally" kill the enemy with a extra damage attack. It happens with Lynx sometimes. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section K: Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Storyline _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ The storyline/time line of Chrono Trigger and its sequel is very complicated. I'll summarize it here. Any help and corrections is GREATLY appreciated. Time Line: I refer to two 'groups' in this time line: Crono's group: The adventurers in Chrono Trigger. Serge's group: The adventurers in Chrono Cross. 65 Million BC: Humans are very primitive. They hunt beasts and trade, and those that do not fight remain hidden. This is because the human race is threatened by a highly evolved form of dinosaurs: Reptites. Crono's group aided in defeating these creatures when they stole their Gate Key, their key to traveling through time. Later, they came back to finish off the Reptites and their leader: Azala. Azala stood defeated, and at a last attempt, summoned a great being from the heavens: Lavos. 'La' meaning big, and 'vos' meaning fire. After this, the castle collapsed into the ground, not to be uncovered for another 65,000,600 years. At this point, there was an alternate world, different from Home World and Another World, that was created. In this world, Crono's group did not come back in time, henceforth the Reptites conquered the world. This is the world of which Terra Tower was summoned from. 12,000 BC: Humans feast on Lavos's energy that they extract using the Mammon Machine. A magical kingdom is created, hovering above the world currently in the Ice Age. Magic flourishes in this kingdom, and everyone uses the power, and all abuse it, especially the ruler: Queen Zeal. She has ordered the construction of the Blackbird, a gigantic ship similar to an airplane. At this time there are also three gurus, who realize that the acts of Queen Zeal are wrong. Guru of Time - Gaspar Guru of Life - Melechoir Guru of Reason - Belthaser Melechoir takes action, and is imprisoned down in the ice covered world. Crono's group saves him, and then proceeds to eliminate the Undersea Palace, where Zeal is harvesting power from Lavos. Crono's group makes it to Zeal and temporarily defeats her... Only to then be crushed by Lavos. Zeal's servant, Dalton takes Crono's group and imprisons them in the Blackbird, seeing that they were the only ones left after a giant gate opens, sucking in Lavos and Schala. (I'm not sure how Lavos and Schala melded into the TimeDevourer or how Lavos returned to the original world.) Crono's group made it to what was left of civilization after escaping the wreck from the Blackbird and defeating Dalton. Dalton had modified Belthaser's ship: the Epoch (which can be found in ruins in a hidden panel behind the desk in the library of Viper Manor once it is revisited). The Epoch now had wings in addition to it's time traveling features. However, Crono had died while fighting Lavos, but was brought back to life thanks to Gaspar giving the remaining group the Time Egg. From here, the Undersea Palace rose from the sea, and became the Black Omen. The Black Omen remained hovering in the sky, until Crono's friends destroyed it. Note: This is the time period where Janus and Schala lived. Sometime between 12,000 BC and 600 AD: Lavos summons Chronopolis to the Sea of Eden and sends Terra Tower to fight it (in attempt to eliminate any future advancements after he was destroyed?). The residents of the Chronopolis win, and seal up Terra Tower. 600 AD: Magus attempts to summon Lavos. Magus's army, consisting of creatures called Mystics, fought the kingdom of Guardia. Crono's group assisted greatly. After Magus's defeat, Crono's group then sent Ozzie, Slash, and Flea off of the chain of life. Somehow, they ended up at the Bend of Time. The palace of the Reptites became uncovered, and an explorer named Toma said that the Rainbow Shell was there. 1000 AD: Crono's group begins their quest. The king is framed for stealing the rainbow shell and illegally selling it. Between 1000 AD and 1006 AD: FATE creates the known world in Chrono Cross. 1006 AD: Miguel and Wazuki get blown into the Sea of Eden during a harsh, electrical storm caused by Kid traveling through time. Serge makes contact with the Frozen Flame in the fifteen minutes while the Chronopolis is shut down because of the storm, which heals his panther poison and registers him as "arbiter" to the FATE computer system. Wazuki becomes Lynx, and Miguel is forever trapped in the sea. 1010 AD: Serge drowns and is saved by Kid in the Home World. The fisherman in Arni chooses to become a fisherman in the Home World. Somehow, the Sea of Eden is transformed into the Dead Sea in the Home World. 1020 AD: The events in Chrono Cross occur. 1999 AD: Crono's party destroys Lavos, and saves the human race. The eliminated future is deposited into the Dead Sea. 2300 AD (Before Lavos was defeated): Crono's group winds up in the future, and learns of their destiny. 2300 AD (After Lavos): People flourish, and the Chronopolis is drawn back in time. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 2: Terminology _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Please send me any terminology I have forgotten.

Tip: By taking characters to things that concern them in other worlds, (i. e., Leena to Cape Howl once you have engraved your love for Leena on it) you can see special events and scenes. Tip: If you run away after stealing from an enemy, you lose the item you stole. Tip: You can equip the Forget-Me-Not-Pot on anyone, and it will work. Tip: You can get the level 7 summons (except FrogPrince) by using traps on common enemies in the game. Here's a list of enemies and their summons: Golem (Yellow) - Centaurpedes in Hydra Marshes (Another World MotherShip (Black) - ShadowCats in Fossil Valley (Home World, after Dimensional Vortex) RedWolf (Red) - Hotdiggity in Mount Pyre (Home World) Sonja (Green) - PreyMantis in Gaia's Navel (Home World) Unicorn (White) - Dodo in Fossil Valley (Home World) Tip: An easy way to get Shiny Materials is by disassembling caps that can be stolen from various enemies throughout the game. Tip: You can get the Profiteer Purse in Van's house in Termina (Another World). Tip (Making Pilfer work nearly 100% of the time): When you have the 3rd slot available, just use a normal attack, I usually choose weak then use pilfer. In other words, don't use pilfer alone and don't let the enemy squeeze in a turn in the middle of it, otherwise you'll have to attack + pilfer again. Tip (Leveling-up): Everyone knows that you can level only so far after you gain each star right? So, in parts of the game where you boss battles one closely after another, like the dragons and rescuing riddel scenario, you can maximize your stat gains by fighting regular battles immediately after you gain a star until you've maxed out. That window of opportunity does not accumulate, hawever, if you gained another star without fighting in some battles. i.e. lets say after getting 31st star you can get one set of stats, and by set i mean around 3-5 stats and not just hp+2, but if you get the 32nd without getting that set, you can still get only one set not two so on and so forth. I'm doing that with all my characters after I gain a star. Tip: Doreen is Masa and Mune's older sister. She likes dreams alot. In Crono Trigger, she is in Enhasa and when you talk to her she will warp around. When you talk to her for the last time, she will tell you that she is Doreen. Questions: Yes, the amount of e-mail I get is overwhelming. I am putting commonly asked questions here. Maybe this will slow down my sudden surge of e-mail. Q: I can't fight the Black Dragon! Whenever Fargo talks to Fargo, he just says Stuff about how Marbule will always remain the same and... A: Walk to the pool where the Black Dragon is sleeping. Press X, and you will pick up the Black Relic. You cannot fight the Black Dragon because you did not go to the dressing room on the Magical Dreamers ship after defeating the Sage of Marbule. Q: How do I use a double technique? A: First, you must get both characters that use the tech to the appropriate element level, then they both must have enough stamina to do an attack. Go to elements to where one skill used in the technique would be, and it will have been replaced with the double technique. Example: To use X-Strike (Glenn's and Serge's skill): Glenn must be at element level 3 so he would be able to use Dash & Gash. Serge must be at element level 3 so he would be able to use Dash & Slash. Both characters must have 1.0 stamina or above. Go to either Glenn's or Serge's element menu. Go to where Dash & Slash/Gash would be, and that technique will not be there. X-Strike will instead. Q: What are the double techniques? A: Here's the list of known double and triple techniques: Double Techniques: Serge (3)/Glenn (3) - X-Strike (Red) Kid (3)/Mel (3) - DoubleTake (Red) Guile (5)/Sneff (7) - SwordStorm (Black) Norris (7)/Grobyc (7) - PitchBlack (Black) Radius (7)/Viper (5) - VitalForce (White) Karsh (3)/Zoah (7) - DragonSpile (Green) Nikki (7)/Miki (7) - Flamenco (Red) Draggy (7)/Leah (7) - DraggyRider (Yellow) NeoFio (7)/Turnip (7) - TossedSalad (Green) Triple Techniques: Serge (5)/Leena (7)/Razzly (7) - DeltaAttack (White) Serge (7)/Kid (5)/Sprigg (Must be doppleganged into Slash and be at level 4) - Z-Slash (Blue) Q: What do frames do? (My Favorite Martian, Seashell, etc.) A: Frames are just other message styles. Go to the configuration (or whatever it is) and select Custom for your message style to choose between frames. Q: I can't cast a summon element. What have I done wrong? A: To cast a summon (like FrogPrince), you must allocate it to a character with the same attribute color. In battle, not only does that character have to be up at the proper element level, but the Field Effect must be all of the same color as the summon. (The field effect is in the upper left corner, whenever an element is used the color of that element is added to the middle of the field effect and the other colors on it move outwards.) If you currently have 0 growth stars (out of any number), then you cannot use a summon, since using a summon consumes a growth level temporarily. Q: I went into the fog after getting the boat instead of going to Hermit's Hideaway. Now nothing happens at Hermit's Hideaway! A: This is perfectly normal. You just miss out on fighting Harle. Any questions that aren't answered here I will answer for you, just e-mail me. Q: How do you get
in your party? A: It tells you how in my characters section. If that character isn't listed, you can't get him in your party. Q: How do I use elements? A: Elements are "opposite" to each other as follows: Red - Blue Yellow - Green Black - White As in any other RPG, opposites are good against each other. When you get an element, somewhere in its description (in the allocating menu) is a number, then a symbol, then another number. The first number is the level of the element. I'm not sure what the second number is, I think it's the amount that the element can be below its level. Above, I've probably jumped the gun. To "equip" (called "allocating") elements, go to the pause menu, then to elements, then to allocate. Each character has 8 "levels" of elements, represented by columns that grow as you gain growth stars. You can equip any element on the list, as I have described above. Q: Where can I buy trap elements? A: Marbule (Home World). Q: Where can I see the wreck of the Epoch? A: To see the wreck of the Epoch, return to Viper Manor after you beat Lynx's Shadow there. Walk behind the desk in the library, and you will here a noise. Press X where the sound is coming from, and you'll be given an option to go down a secret panel in the floor. The Epoch is down there, or what I thought to be the Epoch, at least. Q: How do I use the Chrono Cross? A: Follow the instructions under the last section of me Disc Two section. Q: Where do I get Shiny materials to forge my rainbow weapons? A: There's a whole section under Shiny materials. Look there. Q: How do I beat Dario? A: There's a boss strategy listed under 'Another Soul Possessed' (Disc One, Part Two). Check there. Q: How do I get the treasure in the room in Viper Manor that's to the right of Luccia's laboratory? A: To get the treasure, you have to take the shield off of the wall (I think that's where it is). Put the shield on the knight without a shield. Then, push the statue onto the place where it looks like it should go (by the other statue, a little up though). A door appears between the statues. Now you have to come back after getting Viper in your group. There's a secret switch behind where the guard was. Press that, and you'll get the secret treasure. Q: I have a different (maybe better) way of beating . A: Send it in to me at SeanKelson@aol.com. I'll publish it, giving you credit, of course. Q: Is Squaresoft making a sequel to Chrono Cross? A: Not that I know of. If they were, it would be on Squaresoft's official site: http://www.squaresoft.com Q: I just checked my e-mail and there's a ton of junk mail! Please, take my e-mail address out of the credits! A: Just e-mail me. Simply include an alias you would like in place of the e-mail address. I get a lot of junk e-mail, and I'll gladly replace your e-mail address with an alias for you. Q: Hey! The question I requested you put on here isn't on! A: Sorry. I'm busy enough. Just e-mail me again. I do leave some questions out because I don't feel that they are needed in my walkthrough, but just ask me and I'll tell you the exact reason why it was left out. Q: One mistake... Poshul is a girl! A: Sorry. I'm pretty busy, I don't have the time to get gender correct for animals! Anyway, I didn't feel like going through this giant walkthrough and fixing every single mistake. Q: I was left out of the credits! A: I'm sorry! Sometimes I accidentally delete mail before I put the name in the credits! Just tell me and I'll fix that! Q: I just became Lynx, and now all my previous characters aren't with me! Are they gone forever? A: No, you get them back when you become Serge again. Q: How do I return to the Dimensional Vortex? A: After the Dead Sea is destroyed, go to where you wound up when you left the Dimensional Vortex, then use the Astral Amulet. Q: I never got the Green Tinkler! Now I can never get through the Hydra Marshes! A: Not true. If you missed the Green Tinkler, you can still get around the marshes, it just isn't as easy. Q: That door at the Bend of Time... A: It can open when you're playing a New Game +. Q: How do I cast trap elements? A: To set trap elements, just cast them during battle, as demonstrated by Solt and Peppor. Q: There's this treasure chest in Viper Manor... A trap door opens whenever I try to open it. A: To get that treasure chest, open it from the back (as something on the back wall comments "Respect my behind."). Q: Hey! You can't name a character Crono or Chrono! A: I wonder why... No, seriously, I don't know. Q: What happened to the Masamune? All the sudden it's in 1020 and it's an evil sword! What's up with that? A: The following is from email@example.com (Darkmoogle Hackupo): I know who was holding the Masamune in 1005! "The day the Masamune was stolen" I'm referring to one of the new ending in the PSX Chrono Trigger. And after you fight Solt and Peppor with Karsh in the Isle of the Dammed I think it quite obvious but It is Lynx who made the Bloodshed in Guardia because at the exact time 1005, 1003 were the events of Kids and Serge (remember FATE know all because it control time and destinies itself!) And. Lucca Ashtear House (or orphanage..) is as you remember in CT is really close to Guardia castle and well it in Guardia so that could explains Lynx's business in Guardia perhaps it was a way to "convince" Lucca to "cooperate" and knowing that the Masamune was a trigger to some events in the future he had to steal it (another fate or history circle..)And.. do you remember when Karsh finally explain what happened when he went to the Isle of the dammed killing (wounding) Dario?. well, well look who here! Lynx and he take the Masamune WITHOUT GOING MAD!!, why would you ask? well because he was the last owner of the Masamune! and that why he left the Isle of the Dammed with it and put it where it should be to trigger the event that Should happen that that is near the death's Door and before that event before the Karsh and Dario event was the Garai and Radius event here to it was FATE who make so that it has to happening the timelines! et voila! Q: Why did you copy and paste part of my e-mail into your walkthrough? A: Sorry. I'm busy as a bee. And believe me, re-writing stuff is a pain. I usually copy and paste parts of e-mail that can be copied and pasted. Q: Where can I buy revive elements? A: You can't. Q: I can't find the wormhole in Hydra Marshes! A: I'll tell you the directions to the wormhole in Hydra Marshes. Note that you must have at least defeated Miguel (I think that's his name) at the Dead Sea before you can get to the wormhole. A _|__X / __| | |_____X | / |/ | The A is where you're supposed to go. The X's have more beyond them, but you don't have to go there. When you go through A, you wind up at B on the map below: X X X X X X X W************ *** | B The * represents open area of swamp. The wormhole lies on a tiny hill a small way up from what looks like a moldy greenish brown log. Hope this helps, and, sorry if the ASCII maps are hard to understand. I admit, I'm not an ASCII artist, and this is my first time making maps. Well, practice makes perfect. Q: How do I bend the plants in Hydra Marshes? A: To bend the plants, you need an item called the Green Tinkler. You get the Green Tinkler in Guldove (Another World). Talk to a dwarf in front of Orlha's bar after you have visited the temple in Guldove. You may not be able to get the Green Tinkler, but even if you can't, you can still get through the Hydra Marshes, although it is a tad tricky. Q: How do I get all of the characters in Chrono Cross on my team at one time? A: Yes, you can get all of the characters. However, you have to play a New Game + to get all of them. Use the method used in the New Game + section. Just take different paths to get characters (Save Kid, Don't Save Kid, etc.) each time you play through. Here's generally a basic plan: 1st time through - Save Kid, Guile as Viper Manor Guide 2nd time through - Don't Save Kid, Nikki as Viper Manor Guide 3rd time through - Beat game with Harle 4th time through - Pierre as Viper Manor guide. Use the New Game + Character Retrieval Method and... All the characters! (Except, not Lynx and Serge at the same time) Q: Is Guile actually Magus from Chrono Trigger? A: No. Q: Is Guile actually Gil from the game Magical Dreamers (never released in US)? A: No. Q: Is Glenn actually Frog from Chrono Trigger? A: No. Q: Is there any relation between Glenn (Chrono Cross) and Frog (Chrono Trigger)? A: I don't know. Go ask Squaresoft. Q: Is Luccia actually Lucca from Chrono Trigger? A: No. Q: Is Serge actually Janus/Magus from Chrono Trigger? A: No. Q: Is the guy at the Bend of Time Spekkio from Chrono Trigger? A: Probably not. Q: What's up with Ozzie, Slash and Flea being at the Bend of Time? A: I don't know. I'm not in any way affiliated with Squaresoft, just let me clear that up. Q: I think is actually . A: Go on and e-mail me. Please, give a reason. _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Section M: Other Stuff _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ Segment 1: Author's Note _-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-__-+-_ For those who care, I live in Colorado Springs.
