Chrono Trigger

Battles

Alternate God Of War appearances:
As your characters advance in levels, the God Of War (who can be found in the back room at the end of time) takes on different appearances. When your characters reach the higher levels, it will change into Masamune (the one you fight in the Denadoro Mountains, only blue instead of yellow). When you take a party of people who are all at level 99 he will take on a final form of a Nu. He does all of the highest power magic attacks including Flare, Dark Matter, and Luminair. He also does Hallation (brings everyone down to 1 hp), a physical attack, and Salt (which heals one of your characters completely). Physical attacks do next to nothing on him, and magic is reduced. If you defeat him you get 10 of each tablet and 10 Mega Elixirs. If he is too difficult, you can always put someone in your party that is under level 99 he will return back to Masamune.

Fighting Lavos again:
It is possible to fight Lavos again easily after completing the game. Start a New Game +, go to Lucca's telepod machine, and enter the right telepod. Fight his stage before going through his shell and verything after that point with only Crono and Marle.
Information in this section was contributed by Pika312.

Fighting Lavos one-on-one:
Start a New Game+ and let Marle get on the transporter. She will get sucked back in time. Then, with Crono, run onto the right transporter that takes you to Lavos.
Information in this section was contributed by TurcleII.

Facing Lagos with less fighting:
When you get to the point where you must either fight Lavos or do the side quests, take the Epoch to the "Day Of Lavos". You should get an intermission sequence involving your characters charging Lavos with the Epoch. You then end up inside Lavos (with the Epoch destroyed), without having to do all the fighting at the beginning.

Fighting Spekkio in the Nu form:
To get Spekkio to transform you have to get your party's levels to 99. Use the following trick if you want to fight him with another three. If you take the three characters with the level 99 into the room and then press Y (SNES version) and change characters, Spekkio will stay in the Nu form. It may be more difficult because their levels are low and Spekkio will do all the strong spells like Luminar and Dark Matter. If you are lucky, he will use Salt which is a spell that does the same as Cure 2 on one of your characters.
Information in this section was contributed by Jay House.

Use the following trick to fight Spekkio in the Nu form with anyone. After you get three people in the group to level 99 which is represented by two stars, Spekkio, the god of war, will take the form of a Nu. If you go into his room without those three who are on level 99, he will be in the Masamune form and you will not be able to fight. Walk into the room with your three characters then switch to other characters. When you exit that screen, he should be in the Nu form. Now you can fight him in the Nu form with anyone out of your group.

Defeating the final Golem on the plane:
When you are captured and taken aboard the blackbird after Chrono dies, you will fight the final Golem on the wing of the plane. Instead of wasting MP and effort fighting him, wait. After a while, his fear of heights will overwhelm him and he will run away.
Information in this section was contributed by David Souza.

Defeating Gato:
When you start, the fastest way to gain silver points is to defeat Gato. This is only for when you are just starting the game; otherwise you will not need it. When the battle begins, let him hit you once. It will not do very much damage. He will turn around and walk forward. Wait until he is back there, then start attacking him or use a technique. He will not be able to counter it (punch you three times). This gets easier as you get stronger. You will only gain one technique point. If you want more, go to the Guardia Forest.
Information in this section was contributed by Alex Garcia.

Defeating the Golem Twins:
Have Ayla and Robo in your party. When you face the Golem Twins, have them cast Bogie. You can now hit them with your most powerful combos and they will not Mimic. If the spell wears off, use it again.
Information in this section was contributed by Mac Sample.

Get one or two people to have a red, blue, white, or black mail suit. Have the same suit of magic that corresponds to the caster. For example, if the caster is Crono have him wear the white vest, as it protects against lightning. When you cast a lightning spell, the twins will copy that magic. Instead of hurting that person, it will cure them.
Information in this section was contributed by davis208.

When facing the Golem Twins have Robo and Frog with you, and with Chrono repeatedly use the Confuse tech on the first Golem. It attacks four times and can average about 1,200 damage per turn. As support, use Cure Wave, and when everyone has a safe amount of HP, use Frogs Water magic (since the Mimic Water attack is weak). Once the first Golem is down, the Triple Threat combo will speed things up a bit, but it leaves you more vulnerable.
Information in this section was contributed by argile McAvis.

Defeating Lavos at the Ocean palace:
You cannot defeat Lavos the first time you find him at the Ocean Palace. This trick is only for New Game + mode. Be prepared, because you will fight against the most powerful form of Lavos. To defeat him, have a party with Crono, Marle and Frog. Equip Crono with the Rainbow, Haste Helm, Nova Armor, Prism Specs; Marle with Valkerye, Vigil Hat (or Prism Helm), Prism Dress, Gold Stud; Frog with the Masamune, Safe Helm, Nova Armor, Hero Medal. In his first Form, he has about 20,000+ HP and uses "Destruction Rains From The Heavens" that does about 300 to 500 damage to your party. Use Marle and Frog's Double Cure and attack him repeatedly with Crono. His damage will be over 1,550. Lavos will use Obstacle, but with the protection it will be safe. Cure the party members and do not stop attacking with Crono. Do this repeatedly and Lavos will succumb. When you get inside, heal your characters and recover the MP lost in battle before you take on the Lavos's second form. To destroy the second form, have Marle use Heal, and attack only with Crono and Frog. His damage will be sufficient to take them all. Concentrate on doing damage to destroy the arms before the center. If not, he will use Protective Seal, and your Status Defense is Down. When the both arms are destroyed, concentrate all your best attacks on the head. Use Luminaire or the Frog Squash, or the Ice Sword 2 and you will take about 3,000 to 4,000 HP from him. Do this repeatedly until he is destroyed. When this happens, you will fight against the Lavos Core. He has three bits. The Left Bit has 2,000 HP and can cast Absorb MP and Protective Seal. The Center Bit has a 10,000 HP and uses the most powerful techs, such as Dreamless (Ultimate Magic Attack with damage of 100 to 400 depending on your MG defense) or Grand Stone (Ultimate Physical Attack with damage of 300 to 1,000 depending on your Stamina). The Right Bit has 3,.000 HP, but has a strong defense which only works when the three bits are alive. It also has the ability "Active Life" that revives the Lavos Bits that are dead. During the battle, first heal the entire party. Do not waste your time destroying the right or the left bit, because when the left bit is revived, he uses the Protective Seal. After healing, uses Marle's Haste on her and Frog to maximize their speed. Next, use Shield on Crono and Marle to maximize his defense against the Physical Attacks. Finally, use Barrier on Crono and Frog to maximize their Magic defense. Use normal attacks with Frog and Crono, or use their dual techs on the Center Bit. Have Marle prepared to Heal if necessary. When the Center Bit dies, use the Crono's Confuse tech and destroy the Left Bit. When the Right Bit lower its defenses, use repeatedly the Arc Impulse to take about 4300 HP per attack. You will do about 16,000 to 18,000 HP damage on Lavos with these attacks. When the other bits revive, immediately use Crono's Confuse to destroy the Left Bit and attack the Right Bit with Arc's Impulse three times to destroy it. You can now finish the Right Bit, and Lavos is defeated. You can view the programmer's ending by killing Lavos at the Ocean Palace. Note: The appearance of Lavos is in the Ocean Palace, and not in The Black Omen.

Defeat Magus:
Before leaving 65 million B.C. with the red rock, go to the Dactyl's nest. Go up and down the mountain, defeating all the enemies in your path. Exit the nest and re-enter it. The monsters will have respawned. Continue doing this until Crono, Marle, and Lucca all know their strongest techniques. This will take some time and patience. After learning the techniques, fix the Masamune and give it to Frog. When you reach the fight with Magus, you will damage him significantly with Crono's Luminaire or Lucca's Flare attack.
Information in this section was contributed by cookierose1968.

Defeating Son of Sun:
In the future 2300 AD you have to fight the Son of Sun in order to get the Moon Stone. An easy way to defeat him is to get a special armor found in 65,000,000 BC. You will need ten of each of the following to buy one: Fangs, Petals, Horns, and Feathers. It is called Ruby Armor and greatly reduces the terrible attack Flare and the counterattack of the flames.
Information in this section was contributed by Aerocomet00.

Stealing from Megasaur:
When you steal from Megasaur with a Twin Charm you will get an Aeon Blade. If you steal with just normal charm, you get a Lapis*1, which recovers everyone by 200 hp.
Information in this section was contributed by bizkit02.

Stealing from Evilweevil:
This is useful when you first enter the cave with Ayla in 65 million BC. Steal from them to get a Dream Gun. You will get a Dream Gun with either type of charm used. Use Twin Charm with Ayla and Marle for better results.
Information in this section was contributed by bizkit02.

Stealing:
Steal from the indicated creature to get the corresponding items.
Information in this section was contributed by bizkit02.

Winged Ape: Petal, Ruby Vest
Fly Trap: Dream Bow
Megasaur: Aeon Sword
Evilweevil: Dream Gun
Shitake: Petal
Fossil Ape: Lapis,Megaelixir
Gigasaur: Ruby Armer
Leaper: Elixir

Lower MP use:
Later in the game when the Black Omen appears, enter a battle with it with Alya in your party. As you fight through the ship you will encounter across some Flyclops (small enemies with one eye and wings). When in a battle with them, use Alya's Charm tech to get the Gold Stud accessory, which cuts MP by 75%. Do this with every Flyclops you encounter and you should get enough Gold Studs for everyone in your party. With it equipped, all magic attacks such as Dark Matter and Triple Kick cost only 5 MP. Any other magic will lowered as well.

Marle: Valkerye (Found in Northern Ruins Sidequest).
Robo: Terra Arm (Found in 2300 AD Sidequest).

Frog: Masume 2 (Go to the Northern Ruins Sidequest, then at the Hero Grave Toma will take the sword and put all his power into it) .

Money and tech points

Silver Points:
Go to the left of the tent where you bet on the racers. Talk to the man standing across the track when the runners line up. He will then tell you the name of the racer that will win. Run over to the betting tent and place you bet to get an easy 20 Silver Points.
Information in this section was contributed by The Running Man.

In Leene Square, as the runners are lining up watch who goes to the starting line first. Then, quickly bet on that person. They should win the race.
Information in this section was contributed by Chibone2.

Note: The following trick requires controller with an auto-fire feature, to allow Silver Points to be collected quickly during the Millennial Fair. First, reach the point in the game where you can switch all the characters in your roster around. Go to the Millennial Fair in the year 1000 A.D., with Magus, Marle, Robo, or Frog in the first slot and Chrono, Lucca, or Ayla in the second or third slots. Go to the pop chugging contest, activate the auto-fire, and walk up the man that runs the contest. Your first character should stay in place while your second or third characters chugs. You can now leave the game unattended as your Silver Points increase.
Information in this section was contributed by Dejer and Jay House.

Later in the game, repeatedly defeat Gato.
Information in this section was contributed by Jay House.

In the SNES version, when you go into the fair, go straight to your left. You should see a thing where you hit a bell. Go as far back as possible and press A. If done correctly, you should go over to a person standing next to it. He should give you one Silver Point. You can do this as many times as desired.
Information in this section was contributed by Nathaniel Ribakoff.

9999 damage:
There is a way to do 9999 damage to anything in the game in one strike. As Ayla's levels increase, her weapon (her fists) also changes. When her levels start getting high, her weapon will become the bronze fists. With these, her critical hit will do 9999 damage to anything (even Queen Zeals Hands will suffer it).
Information in this section was contributed by Cdderek.

Money:
Once Ayla is with you in 65,000,000 B.C., you will be able to trade petals, horns, and feathers for new items. Trade and equip them on your characters. After that, trade for more of the items. Then go and sell the items for a quick profit.
Information in this section was contributed by Tarek Al-Azem.

After you do not care much about experience, get an item called the wallet. After the point where you charge up Marle's pendant, go to the future and check the door behind the first gate you exited towards the start of the game. Put the wallet on one of your three party members. All your experience will be added to the gold you get in the battles.

Go to your own era, then go to the mayor's manor in the far south. Go in and out and to get 10 g. This can be done as many times as needed.
Information in this section was contributed by Adbl0297.

Go to 65,000,000 B.C. Upon arrival, go to the hunting grounds. While you are there, kill the three groups of three frogs. They give you two Fangs, Horns, and Feathers. Go to the trader and give him three Fangs and Horns. This will give you one of Crono's weapons, depending on how far you are in the game. Then, go to any other time period with a market and sell the new item. It is better to do the above many times before leaving to sell your items so you can do so in mass quantities and save time climbing the mountain.

Buy jerky from shop owner at the Café in the present (year 1000), then sell it to the girl in the Mayor's Manor in the year 600. You will make a 100 GP profit each time. Note: You need to give her the jerky once. Otherwise, you cannot get the Moon Stone from the present mayor.
Information in this section was contributed by bizkit02.

Go to Leene's Square. As soon as you arrive, go east to the "Tent of Horrors". Go in, then immediately exit. You will notice that the racers have just started. Wait until they have lined up again. Bet on the green ambler. He will win every time that you do this. Once you get your 20 silver points, repeat the process as many times as desired. When you want your money, go north and find the man that exchanges 10 silver points for 50g. When you think you have enough money, you can also spend silver points in the "tent".
Information in this section was contributed by David Fox.

Tech points:
When you get to Mt. Woe there will be a Rubble that gives you one hundred tech points that keeps appearing over and over. When you reach the first save point in Mt. Woe, go north of that save point. There will be a chain leading to the right. Cross through the chain and a Rubble will be there. Put the accessory "Berserker" on a character. Fight the Rubble, defeat it, then go south of the save point. Climb down the ladder to go to another area, then go back to the Rubble and it will appear again. Note: It is suggested you have Crono , any other character, and Ayla in your group. Place the Berserker on Ayla, since she will induce greater damage then any other character.

Go to the Cursed Woods in the Middle Ages (600 AD) and keep walking until you get to a pink frog pacing back and forth across the screen, just before you get to the entrance to Frog's house. Run from the entrance to that frog to see a Nu walking away. Talk to him he will say "Stop it you dog". While he is still on the screen, run into an enemy and he will be stuck in the battle field. You will get average experience but about 32 tech points. You will get the same amount of tech points for fighting a Nu in the Hunting Age (65,000,000 BC), but it only comes out at three different points, only when it rains. Another place to fight Nus are in Kajar (1,200 BC) after opening up three books having the elements of water, wind, and fire (in that order). A door will open and you will fight six Nus. You can only fight them once. The Nu in the Cursed Forest is the fastest way to get tech points.
Information in this section was contributed by Jay House.

Experience and tech points:
At the bottom of the Ocean Palace in 12,000 B.C. is a save point guarded by a Jinn and a Barghest. Save and heal here, then walk down into the blue elevator shaft-type room. Here, you will encounter two Blue Scouts, two Scouters, and one Mage. Put one Water caster, Frog or Marle, in your group anyone as the third person. First, attack one of the Blue Scouts with Chrono, then have your third person attack the same one. Next, have Marle/Frog cast Water/Ice on the Blue Scout that has not been attacked -- this should kill it. Then, have your third person attack the remaining Blue Scout. Hopefully this will kill it -- if not the fight will take a little longer. If the last Blue Scout is dead, then have Chrono cast Lighting 2 which will hopefully kill both of the Scouters and do some damage to the Mage. You can finish off the Mage with physical attacks. Note: The Mage may cast Lock, which disables Tech attacks. This battle results in 1258 experience, 40 tech points, 1550 gold, and 1 Lapis. After defeating them, walk out the room and re-enter for the same fight.

Money, experience, and tech points:
The following trick only works after/when you first get Ayla. Start by going to the hunting ground in 65 million B.C. Then, wait for it to rain and a Nu monster will appear in one of the four corners of the hunting grounds -- most commonly the upper two and the lower right. The Nu monster only has one attack that bring its target down to one HP, so it is impossible to lose to it. It also gives you 30 skill points. After each time you kill the Nu monster, it will give you three Petals, Fangs, Horns, and Feathers. After obtaining your desired amount, return to the village to trade with the native man. To get the most cash out of this, trade him Petals and Feathers for Stone Arms that sell for 3,525 and Horns and Fangs for a Flint Edge that sells for 3,125. You only have to defeat the Nu monster ten times to receive enough items for a little over 65,000.
Information in this section was contributed by Ben Rowlett.

Go to 65 million B.C., then go to the hunting grounds. Fight monsters (especially Nu) until you have about 50 of every item (Petal, Fang, Horn and Feather). Go to the trading hut, and talk to the man that you trade with. He appears different from everyone else. Trade all your Feathers and Petals for Stone Arms (worth the most), and all your Horns and Fangs for Flint Edges (next most expensive). Go to a market in 2300 A.D., 1000 A.D., or 600 A.D.. Sell all your Stone Arms and Flint Edges. You will get a lot of money, and get experience and tech points while fighting.

Before you get the Bike Key in 2300 A.D., go up to the old highway. Fight the four robots to get 200 gil and a considerable amount of experience. After you fight them, go up by the "jet bike" and follow the path to the right. instead of continuing through the area, an alarm will sound and four more robots (always the same type) will appear and fight you. Repeat this as many times as desired. If you get low on HP and MP, go back to the dome to the south and use the Enertron.
Information in this section was contributed by Dustin Irmen.

Note: This trick takes lots of time, but is well worth it. To get unlimited money, tech, and experience points, go to the Gene Dome in 2300 A.D. where you fight Robos Mothers. As soon as you enter the dome, Mother traps you and send you down a conveyer belt, fighting enemies all the way. When you reach the end, go through the door. To your right, you will see what looks like a tab on the floor. Search it and you will be asked if you want to enter the heating duct. Say "Yes" to return to the entrance. You can then fight the same monsters again. Repeat this as mahy times as desired.

Items

Bronze Fist:
Ayla gains the Bronze Fist at level 72. It boosts her attack. If she does a critical hit, it will damage anything by 9999, even Zeal's Hands in Black Omen.
Information in this section was contributed by Eben.

Crisis Arm:
Once you get Crono back, go to Geno Dome with Robo Leading. Defeat Mother Brain there to receive the Crisis Arm, along with the Terra Arm. The Crisis Arm is a very good weapon despite what you may think. Its damage depends on the last digit of your HP when it is below critical. For example, 10 HP does 0 damage and 19 HP does the most.
Information in this section was contributed by Jake Jacobson.

Gold Rock:
To get the Gold Rock, go to Denadoro Mts. with Frog as the leader of the party. Equip the fully charged Masamune and the Hero Medal and get hit with a rock that gets thrown. He will catch a Gold Rock instead of being hit. It invokes triple tech Grand Dream.
Information in this section was contributed by james duck.

Magic Tab:
Get the Naga-ette Bromide in the cathedral (first room up the stairs at the right, next to the three treasure chests). In 600 AD, go to the uppermost residence in the first town south of Zenan bridge. There is a locked cabinet with a Tab blinking inside. Talk to the old man and he will offer to trade. If you do, you will get a Magic Tab.
Information in this section was contributed by Vernjonal.

Megalixers:
When you are looking for the Rainbow Shell in the Giant's Claw cave, you should find a cave that has two switches by the door and one in the middle of the room. There should be a skull that opens up into another small room. If you step on the switch on the bottom right as you are walking in, you should encounter two Fossil Apes. Have Ayla use Charm on each ape and you should get a two Megalixers. If not, try using Charm while Ayla is equipped with the Charm Top.
Information in this section was contributed by The Real Super Saiyin.

Mop:
To get Crono's worst weapon, use Ayla's Charm tech on a Nu. The Wood Sword has an attack power of 2, but the Mop only has an attack power of 1.
Information in this section was contributed by MaybeCouldBeInteresting.

Nova Armors:
Go to the Black Omen with Ayla in your party. Fight a Goon and use Ayla's Charm tech on the Goon. Note: Equipping Ayla's Charm Top accessory will help. Eventually, the Goon will cough up a Nova Armor.
Information in this section was contributed by MllFierbird27.

Nu Tabs:
In the Black Omen at the room where the Nus are, talk to the one on the left and tell him "Just Chat" ten times. He will say, "All right already, if you want to talk so much, then here are some topics to discuss, Nu!" The topics are "Rainbow Shell", "Sunstone", "Magic Tab", "Speed Tab", "Power Tab", and "Nu!". Do this ten times and choose "Nu" every time. Nu will get tired of it and give you three "Nu Tabs". When you use them up, their effect are as follows:

Rainbow Shell:
The Rainbow Shell is fairly easy to get. Walk and fight your way through all the Dinos that lived after Lavos landed on their home. After getting the Rainbow Shell to the King, go to the Present and return to the castle. Some events will pass by as a trial of the King is ongoin. Get the King's daughter in your group and go to the court room. After the talking and such, go to the basement, which is overrun by monsters. Get the Rainbow Shell piece and return to the court. After awhile the man will transform into Yakra XIII. Defeat him and later go back and take the key on the floor. Look for a locked chest and find the real man.
Information in this section was contributed by Simfan16.

Sun Stone:
Have Magus join your party and have him learn the Black Hole technique. Get into the fight with the "Son of Sun" (in 2300 AD) and use Black Hole to actually kill the two flames in front of the "Son of Sun". If it does not kill both of them the first time, wait until he uses Roulette Shuffle and use it again. You can now easily find the flame that hurts the "Son of Sun".
Information in this section was contributed by Ace2560.

To get the Sun Stone, you must go through several steps. First, defeat the Sun of Son's in the future, 2300 AD. He is hiding in the Sun Palace in the south. You need the Flying Epoch to reach him. When defeated, he will give you a Moon Stone. Travel to 65,000,000 BC and venture to the Sun Keep. Leave the Moon Stone there. Go to 1000 AD. The stone will be gone. Travel to the southern town of Poore and enter the house in that has sparkles are coming out of the roof. Talk to the Mayor -- the greedy father. He says he has not heard of the moon stone. Go to one of the houses and talk to the bartender. Buy the Jerky from him. Return to 600 AD and go to the same house that the greedy father lived in. Talk to the mother at the sink and give her the Jerky. She will reply that she will teach her children to share. Go back to the same house in 1000 AD. Talk to the former greedy father. He will say someone left the stone here and give you the Moon Stone. Go back to the Sun Keep in 1000 AD and leave the Moon Stone. Time travel back to the future, 2300 AD, with Lucca in your party. Go to the Sun Keep. The Sun Stone will be there and Lucca will make her ultimate weapon, the Wondershot, with it. You will also get the Sun Specs. If you have obtained the Rainbow Shell from Giant's claw in 600 AD, go to the basement of the 1000 AD Castle. Give Melchior the Sun Stone to get Chrono's Rainbow and the Prism Specs.

Triple Tech stones:
Information in this section was contributed by David Souza.

Black Rock (Marle, Lucca, Magus - Dark Eternal)
Obtained in Zeal by opening the wind, water, and fire books in the correct order to open a secret door behind the Nu in one of the first two cities.
Blue Rock (Lucca, Robo, Magus - Omega Flare)
Obtained in Giant's Claw. The chest is half hidden by a rock wall nearby a door on the bottom of the screen.
Silver Rock (Robo, Frog, Ayla - Spin Strike)
Obtained by talking to the Nu in the Laruba Ruins in 65 million B.C. The Nu will not appear until the later stages of the game.
White Rock (Marle, Ayla, Lucca - Poyozo Dance)
Obtained in Black Omen. The chest is half hidden in a corner in the room with the line of Ruminators running through it. If not found here, keep looking elsewhere else in the Omen.
Gold Rock: (Frog is only needed - Grand Dream)
Obtained in the Denadoro Mountains. Later in the game, place Frog as the leader of the party and go to the area where rocks are thrown at you. Let Frog get hit by one and he will catch it instead. To be able to do Grand Dream, you will need to go to visit Cyrus at Hero's Grave so that the Masamune will power up.

Go to the Cursed Woods in the Middle Ages (600 AD) and keep walking until you get to a pink frog pacing back and forth across the screen, just before you get to the entrance to Frog's house. Run from the entrance to that frog to see a Nu walking away. Talk to him he will say "Stop it you dog". While he is still on the screen, run into an enemy and he will be stuck in the battle field. You will get average experience but about 32 tech points. You will get the same amount of tech points for fighting a Nu in the Hunting Age (65,000,000 BC), but it only comes out at three different points, only when it rains. Another place to fight Nus are in Kajar (1,200 BC) after opening up three books having the elements of water, wind, and fire (in that order). A door will open and you will fight six Nus. You can only fight them once. The Nu in the Cursed Forest is the fastest way to get tech points.

There are several stones that show up as accessories are secrets to gaining new Triple Techs. For every stone there are only three people who can equip one. Those are the people you need to have in your party to do it (Chrono cannot do any of the Triple Techs gained by way of the stones). These Techs work like any of the others except for the gold stone, for which you need the powered up Masamune to be able to do the tech.

Get three of each stone:
Use the following trick to get three of each stone (black, blue, sliver, white). The game has an option to use the data from the saved game in your new game (New Game+ option). In time you will have all the desired stones. Note: This also helps you keep any spells and levels all characters have gained during the game, and to get more of any item that you normally can only get one of. This also give you all the items in your item slot.

Extra items:
Go to 600 AD and examine the black treasure chests. If one reacts to Marle's Pendant, do not remove its contents. Then, go to 1000 AD and return to the same black treasure chest. Remove the contents, and the item will be upgraded. Return to 600 AD and get the black treasure chest. Now you have both of them.

Before Mt. Woe and after Terra Cave, there is a small cave with Beasts in it, and a Mud Imp, Blue Beast, and Red Beast guarding the chain to Mt. Woe. Before you fight the Mud Imp and Red and Blue Beasts, fight the Beasts. Charm them with Ayla for some Rainbow Helmets. You can Charm them repeatedly. After you have enough to equip your party, you can continue to Charm them for more, which you can sell for 8,000 G. After you defeat the Mud Imp and companions, you cannot do this anymore. However, when you get on the Mountain, you can Charm the Bantam Imps and Man Eaters for an Alloy Blade for Chrono and a Pearl Edge for Frog. You can Charm them continuously for many of these. Fill up to get 99 of both, then go down to Terra Cave. Sell them until you have 999,999 G. Each Pearl Edge is worth 11,000 G and two Alloy Blades are worth 21,000 G. Go back to the Mount, and Charm the Bantam Imps and Man Eaters until you have 99 of both again, then repeat. Extra money, items, and new weapons for Frog and Chrono.

Make Nu surrender items:
In the prehistoric hunting grounds, if you catch a Nu just as it is going back into its hiding place, it will automatically surrender as if you won and give you the items it would normally give, but without the fight. You can conserve time and HP this way.

Ozzie Pants, Flea Vest, and Slasher2:
Use Alya's Charm tech when you are fighting all three together on Ozzie to get the Ozzie pants; Flea to get the Flea vest; and Slash to get the Slasher2.
Information in this section was contributed by Matthew Richardson.

Rare accessories:
Use Ayla in your party while on the Black Omen. When fighting Sub-Bosses, such as the three Mutants and the Lavos Spawn, use Ayla's Charm tech. You will receive Musclerings, Gold Studs, and other items. Use the Charm tech on other adversaries as well to get elixirs and other useful items. Another option is to use Ayla and Marle together and use the Double tech, Twin Charm.

During the Cyrus's Ghost side quest, do not collect any of the treasure chests inside (the normal ones or the black boxes that are opened with the pendant). After completing the quest in 600 A.D., leave immediately and travel forward in time to 1000 A.D. Now, collect all the treasure chests here. Then, travel back to 600 A.D. and re-collect all the treasure chests. Since you collected them in the future, they are still here in the past. You will get two of all the rare items in the castle. This trick also works with the other black boxes that are scattered around in 600 A.D. and 1000 A.D. (in the grove in Guardia forest, various houses, etc.)

Magus: Special armor:
There are pieces of armor made specially for Magus. To get them, go to Ozzie's Fortress and go to the room with the great "treasure", with the falling axe right in front of it. Check the wall directly across from where Ozzie was cranking the axe from left to right to find a hidden room. Open the three treasure boxes to get Magus' ultimate helm, weapon, and armor. Note: Keeping the Prizm Helm and Moon Armor on him, if you own enough, is recommended.

Be innocent at court:
When you are captured and taken to court, there is a way to get a not guilty verdict. First, never eat the old man's lunch on the table in the Pink Sack. Second, locate the cat behind the table next to the table with the old man's lunch. Talk to the cat and it will follow you. Take it two screens to the right, to the screen with the pop chugging contest. Talk to the little girl there and she will thank you for bringing back her cat. Third, when Marle is getting candy, do not move. Wait for her to buy her candy. Finally, when you talk to the sword merchant and he asks about her pendent, do not offer to sell it.

When you bump into Marle, talk to her. Get her pendant to give to her. Do not talk in the Pink Lunch. Talk to the cat so it will follow you to the little girl on the right side of the fair by the table. If you talk to the weapon merchant, answer "No" to selling Marle's pendent. When Marle is buying candy do not move at all. Note: The councilor may still try, saying you are to be executed in three days

Revive the Forest:
Go to the Dark Ages and go to the Commons. There will be a girl standing next to a pot with a plant in it. Tell her to take care of it. After this, go back to 600 A.D. and go to Friona's place. There will be a whirlpool in the sand. Enter it and fight all the monsters. The Boss here is somewhat difficult to defeat. First, attack the center using physical attacks. When it is dead have Magnus or Frog cast a Water2 or Ice 2 to freeze the monster. His Dex will fall, allowing you to get some good hits with Robo's Shock or his multi-hit attack. After you hit him, his Dex returns. Repeat this strategy and you will eventually win. Leave to see Friona with Robo in your party and allow him to stay. After this, go to the Present and go to Friona's shrine, where you can get Robo back.
