Hint: Always win at roulette:
The following trick allows you to win the roulette game every time in the casino on the S.S. Zelbess. When the pointer begins to spin, pause game play when the red tip is in between the "W" and the "S" points of the roulette wheel. Then, repeatedly press X and resume the game. It will land on "N" every time, giving you double the money you wagered. Note: In the Japanese version of the game, press Circle.
Information in this section was contributed by TheChronoCross and LoSt BoY.

Press Start while the wheel is spinning. Wait for it to go slightly past the "S" then quickly press X. You should get it on "N" or "E" most of the time.
Information in this section was contributed by Q Boi.

After you have seen the scene when Sneff loses to Fargo, go up to the room above the roulette room. CFargo to a game. After learning how he was always winning, take the handle from the machine used for cheating. You will find out how to become a cat and sneak into the hotel area, etc.. If you know how Sneff counts to three before he does a magic trick, use that for a better chance of winning.
Information in this section was contributed by Munky55.

Hint: Double or Die on Roulette:
Note: This trick requires the fast forward option. After you get the handle and have the roulette table unrigged, speed up time and you will only see one spinner instead of four. Get it so the spinner is just above the "W" and just below the "E". Then, press the stop button and you will get either "N" or "S", making you Double or Die. You will never get "W" or "E". Note: You can also get the spinner directly above the E and below the W, so you will get only "W" or "E".

Hint: Always get treasure from the Boxer Bros:
Enter the battle with the Boxer Bros. Hit one of your choice - if it is wrong, run. Reenter the combat and hit the same one. Repeat until you get the treasure.
Information in this section was contributed by Devan Neufeld.

Before opening a chest that leads into a Boxer Boys battle, remember if it is big or small. If it is small, attack the big one. If it is big, attack the small one.
Information in this section was contributed by Fx.

Hint: Bend Of Time:
You can find the Bend Of Time in the island with a black spot in it. The location is almost the same as the one in Chrono Triger minus the old man and the fact that you cannot use it to travel in time .
Information in this section was contributed by Moh.Ismail.

Hint: Duplicate items and elements:

Step 1: Successfully complete the game, but keep a file that you can complete the game from (this must not be a "Continue+" game).
Step 2: Save your progress from completing the game to a separate file and "Continue+" the file near the end.
Step 3: Complete the game with the "Continue+" file, but make absolutely certain you still have the file near the end.
Step 4: Save the "Continue+" data over the old data that let you restart your game and repeat steps 2 to 4 as needed. If done correctly, you will have twice the amount of everything in your inventory, including your elements, weapons, (basically everything except your key items).

This is a very good trick for making rainbow weapons and armor near the end. Since you can keep repeating this you can, if you have the time, end up with 99 of every item/element in the game.
Information in this section was contributed by Arshune.

Hint: Unlimited money, Dragoon's Glory's, Viper's Lv. 7 Tech Skill:
After Serge is reborn, visit Termina (Home World) with Viper in your party. Talk to the barmaid, go into the back room, and examine the flag on the back wall. Viper will talk briefly about the flag and then take his LvL 7 Tech Skill, "FlagBearer". He will also take a Dragoon's Glory. Exit the room and re-enter. Examine the back wall with Viper still in your party. Even though there is no flag, Viper will say the same thing that he said before and will take another "FlagBearer" and Dragoon's Glory. Repeat this as many times as needed. Each Dragoon's Glory can be sold for 4,000 gold. The stats for Dragoons's Glory is Atk. +3, Hit% +3%, Mgc. +2. You can also disassemble them for 1 Denadorite, 2 Scale, 2 Fur, and 2 Fang.
Information in this section was contributed by Joseph Mireles.

Hint: Quick money:
When Serge first wakes up in his bed, check it to find "Serge's private stash" of 200 gold.
Information in this section was contributed by Habeb31.

Hint: Easy kills:
During a battle, use the Turn White Element. Then with someone with a black innate color, use Hell Bound. It should kill the enemy. Note: You may need to attack the enemy.
Information in this section was contributed by RoyxMarthxEmblem.

Hint: Cheaper Mythril:
Once you are able to forge the Mythril Weapons and Armor (when you are Linx), go to Zapa's Weapons shop in Termina (Home World). It turns out that he is closing up his shop for good and is going on a hunt for Rainbow stones. If you have Radidud in your party, he will ask to join you. Answer "Yes" and you will also get the Smith Spirit, which allows you to forge items without visiting a shop. This is especially useful towards the end chapters of the game. After he joins, go into the room next door where his son is located. His son is going to be a trader from now on and will offer to trade elements for materials. Answer "No" and go to Lisa's shop. Buy 99 Tablets for 10 gold each, then return to where Zapa's son is located. Talk to him again to trade. You will get a menu, and at the bottom you will see Mythril for 30 Levels. This means 30 Levels of anything. Just trade him 30 Tablets for a Mythril -- you just received a Mythril Stone. Repeat the 30 Tablets for 1 Mythril trade as needed. There are also a few more materials that this works with as well. Just buy the cheapest consumable element and trade it in for the item you want. You can get anything cheaply without giving up valuable elements.
Information in this section was contributed by Gunnm Angel.

Instead of buying Tablets, but Capsules. They may cost more individually, but one Capsule is worth three Tablets. For example, 25 gold vs. 30 gold. Also, since it only takes 10 Capsules to get a Mythril instead of 30 Tablets, you can get more in one trip. Note: This refers to trading elements for base items with the boy in the Smith's shop at Termina.
Information in this section was contributed by Jamesheben.

Hint: Better ending:
When you get to the final Boss, boost all of your characters up to Element power 8. Then, defend until "it" casts a yellow element. Use LV. 1 and 2 Elements so the six tones will be set up in at the same time. Make sure Serge has the Chrono Cross Element. There is a specific order the elements go in: yellow, red, green, blue, black, and white. Then, use the Chrono Cross Element. Do not worry about hurting it -- the battle will be over when you do this.
Information in this section was contributed by RedDawg621.

To easily get the good ending, when fighting the final Time Devourer make sure you have the Chrono Cross. Cast the Yellow and Red elements. then wait for the Time Devourer to cast his element. Most of the time it will cast a Green Element. If it does, then cast the remaining elements: Blue, Black, White, and finally the Chrono Cross. If the Time Devourer casts a different color element, simply start this trick from the beginning.
Information in this section was contributed by Erlenmeyer.

Information in this section was contributed by Moh.Ismail.

Hint: Glenn: Second Einlanzer:
When Serge gets the Mastermune, go to the place in Termina (Another World) where you saw Glenn and Riddel praying. Go to the Mastermune.
Information in this section was contributed by casper_456.

Information in this section was contributed by RedDawg621.

Information in this section was contributed by casper_456.

Hint: Feed all 100 dragons:
Note: A controller with a turbo feature is required for this trick. When you meet the man who feeds dragons in a barn, you can earn prizes depending on how many dragons you feed for him. To feed all 100 set the turbo feature on X and use the D-pad to move back and forth.
Information in this section was contributed by Hapjap1.

This is a simple task to do, but only recommended after first completing the game. After completing the game use the "slow speed" button to make the 100 dragons feedable.
Information in this section was contributed by T Kiley.

Hint: Feel elements:
Use a Feel element and then use a element that is opposite of the color of the Feel element to inflict more damage to an opponent. Example: Use Feel Yellow and then use a Green Element.
Information in this section was contributed by adamb.

Hint: Full Revive element:
At the end of the game, before the final battle, go to Marbule in Home World. At the entrance of the village, talk to the demi-human (female). She will announce that Serge is the 100th visitor, and give the element. Note: It is for white innate characters only.
Information in this section was contributed by Darkblade.

Hint: Equipping elements to characters:
Never equip an element that is the opposite color of your characters innate color to that character. For example, never equip Blue elements to Kid; Green elements to Poshul; and White elements to Guile. The complete set of elements that never should be equipped are as follows:
Information in this section was contributed by DayDream1405.

White elements to Black innate
Black elements to White innate
Green elements to Yellow innate
Yellow elements to Green innate
Red elements to Blue innate
Blue elements to Red innate

Hint: Getting Holy Light early:
When you fight Miguel in the Dead Sea, you can capture his Holy Light element. Go to the Isle Of The Damned and fight the burning WilloWisps until it has two Deadheads with it. Often times, they will drop a Holy Light trap. It helps to have Holy Light early to dominate the battlefield and get by Miguel's Holy Light without damage.
Information in this section was contributed by Pat Durai.

Hint: Trapping the Holy Light element:
To trap the Holy Light element early in the game, when you fight Mega Starky, set the trap at the beginning of the battle. Then, all you have to do is wait for him to cast it. This is also an opportunity to trap Ultra Nova.
Information in this section was contributed by Kelvin Rodeo.

Hint: Monsters to trap Holy Light and Ultra Nova from:
Mega Starky, Luxator, Garai, Miguel, and the Sky Dragon.
Information in this section was contributed by Kelvin Rodeo.

Hint: Monsters to trap the Summoning elements from:

Hint: Anti-Gravity device:

Information in this section was contributed by Jamie.

Hint: Book Of Poems:
In the beginning of the game, go to Arni (Home World) and talk to the girl who wants to be a poet. When you have access to both worlds freely, go to Arni (Another World) and talk to the same girl in the Cafe. Then, go to the Home World Arni and talk to same girl. She will give you the Book of Poems. Go back to Another World and talk to the same girl. She cannot take the book but she will give you a Rainbow Shell.
Information in this section was contributed by Chronoserge1988 and Krypt1057.

Hint: Purse:

Hint: Cure Element:
When you wake up at the start of the game, go to the house where the big save crystal is located. Press X at the picture of the big symbol to get the Cure Element.
Information in this section was contributed by Federico Cedeno.

Hint: Forget-me-not Pot:
You do not have to equip Sprigg with the Forget-Me-Not-Pot in order to gain monsters with the Dopplegang ability. It can be equipped to anyone in your party and you will receive the monster/enemy as a usable ally, as long as the character that has the Pot gets the last blow on the enemy, thus killing it. Leave the Pot on Serge or Leah because they are the strongest in the group. Also, after you kill a monster, you do not have to move the Pot to Sprigg to be able to use it -- just have the Pot and do not sell it.
Information in this section was contributed by Chris.

The Forget-me-not-Pot is not just for Sprigg. Equip it on your strongest character. Defeat any monster with that character and Sprigg will be able to Dopplegang it. If you get three Pots through New Game+, equip each party member with one Forget-me-not-Pot. You will be guaranteed to have any enemy that is defeated in Sprigg's Dopplegang abilities.
Information in this section was contributed by KagatoX.

Hint: Rainbow material:
For each enemy you kill with your summon, you get one "shiney". Find a place with several higher level (so you do not kill them when you power-up your techs) enemies. Equip all three of your characters with level 1 spells so you can power two of them up to two and the third up to eight. Then, use your two secondary characters to cast three spells (one will cast twice, which is why you want them low level) and then summon an elemental to finish off all the enemies. Note: If you are fighting lower level enemies switch the one you are targeting or use cures (watch the color). Also, find places where the enemies are the same color as your summons. This makes it easy to cast them. For example, the volcano for red, the sea for blue and yellow (but not as many enemies), etc.
Information in this section was contributed by Solar Star.

Hint: Rainbow Axe:
Go to Marbule in the world where the man asks you to buy the Master Axe. Buy it, then keep Zappa in your party. Equip him with the axe. Switch worlds and talk to Zappa. He will give you the Rainbow Axe.
Information in this section was contributed by Zimmyzam99.

Hint: Rainbow Shell:
When you begin the game, walk outside your house and go in the middle of the town where a woman is selling elements next to a big basket full "fruit" elements. Do not talk to the woman. Press X around the left of the basket. You should find a "Frame: Seashell Frame". When you are able to go to "Another World", search the same spot. You will find a Rainbow Shell. The woman will not let you have it. You will have to wait until Serge is reborn. Arni is now deserted so you can go get the Rainbow Shell.
Information in this section was contributed by MetalicInferno.

Go to the Water Dragon's Isle (Another World) and talk to the man who wanted to uncurse himself by giving the Sturdy Ribs away.
Information in this section was contributed by Darkblade.

Hint: Seal All:
Use the following tactic to keep enemies from using elements while you still can. A Seal All and protect against anti-color charms are required for this trick. Allocate a Seal All element and equip and any protect against anti-color charms. When in a tough battle where the enemy's elements hurt more than you can handle, use Seal All. If it does not miss, the enemies will not be able to use elements and while you still can.
Information in this section was contributed by Tyler M.

Hint: Time Controller:
To get the Time Controller and be able to fast forward and rewind time, you need to complete the game then start a New Game+.
Information in this section was contributed by WhitedogSG.

Hint: Defeating the Black Dragon:
Do not help Nikki aboard the S.S. Zelbess. Then, fight the Black Dragon. The message "The black dragon remands to sleep" will appear and you will get the Black Relic. Note: Doing this will prevent you from getting the Black Plate one level up and the Grim Reaper summon element.
Information in this section was contributed by Sk8erguy4747.

Get a character that has a White Innate, such as Riddel, and give him or her almost nothing except White attacks and about five Recoveralls. Give a few Revives to everyone. Give the character with the White Innate color an item that protects them from Anti White on their accessories list so that he or she does not block their attacks.

Hind: Defeating Chriosphinx:
An easy way to defeat the Chriosphinx without unlocking New Game+ is to equip the Green Plate that was stolen from the Green Dragon on your most powerful character. Attack Chriosphinx with every element possible. After that, use physical attacks. This can take a very long time but is well worth it. You will get the Moonglasses for defeating it.

Hint: Defeating Dark Serge:
The battle with Dark Serge can be tough, because of him using powerful elements. Buy all the trap elements from the man in Marbule. Go through one battle with Dark Serge and either die or run away. Try to remember all the elements he used and trap them. The element you need to watch for is the BlackHole. It does major damage. After the battle, de-allocate the trap elements and replace them with the ones you trapped. Do not worry about Dark Serge's techs, such as FeralCats and ForeverZero. Lynx has the same elements and can inflict more damage than Dark Serge can.
Information in this section was contributed by NEO ChronaZERO.

Make sure you have done the following: Have Lynx,Steena,and Fargo; allocate White Elements and things to cure you; teach Hydra Shadow to Steena; allocate MagNegate to Steena; allocate Turn White to Lynx; allocate the White Dragons element on Steena if possible; have everyone in your party have their best weapons; and equip accessories that raise your MagicDef and health to everyone in your party. In the battle, first use Hydra Shadow and Direa Shadow on Dark Serge. Then. cast MagNegate on Lynx. While you are doing this, use all of your White Elements on Dark Serge. Also use Cannon Balls and Invincible on Dark Serge. Remember to cure people when you need to. When Steena has used Hydra and Direa Shadow, cast Turn White on Dark Serge and unleash Forever Zero, Feral Cats, and Glide Hook. Note: If allocated the White Dragons element on Steena, then use it before you cast Turn White on Dark Serge. Remember to keep healing.
Information in this section was contributed by T1A1D.

Hint: Defeating Dario:
Every time Dario is attacked with an element, he counters with an element of the opposite color. Equip all your characters with nothing but green elements. Everytime Dario is attacked with an element, he will counter only with a harmless lores spell. Here is the list of what he counters with.
Information in this section was contributed by Roscoe Reyes.

Red: Unknown
Blue: Unknown
White: His techs
Black: Recover All
Yellow: Bateyes
Green: Lores

Give the black plate stolen from the Black Dragon to Riddle. Then, get rid of all the elements in your grid and use physical attacks -- if you do not Dario will go crazy on that person. However, do not do anything with Riddle just in case. Since Dario will only targets Riddle first, the first attack Dash & Gash will hurt her. However, all the other attacks (since they are black) will heal her. You will get the Matermune and Snake Fang for Riddle after the battle.
Information in this section was contributed by Dragon0903.

It is easy to defeat Dario without the Black Plate. First, equip everyone (Including Riddle) with Red Elements. When battling, use two Fierce (3) attacks then a Red Element. Dario will only cast Nimble on you, which does almost nothing. With this strategy, you do not get hurt and are still doing plenty of damage.
Information in this section was contributed by Ryan Bell.

Have everyone in you party equip Iceblast (an element) in every slot. If you do not have any, buy them at a shop. When you get in battle with Dario, keep doing Iceblast and he will just counter with Weaken and never attack or inflict damage. Also, he will not recover himself.
Information in this section was contributed by Soaringsonic.

First, go to the Isle Of The Damned. Fight Solt and Peppor. Afterwards, you will get Karsh's level 7 tech. Bring Karsh with you when fighting Solt and Peppor. Note: Serge must be reborn first at Fort Dragonnia H.W. Proceed to the Forbidden Island. Once there you will find a hut. Then, when fighting Dario, allocate your characters with Red Elements. Always use your Red Elements on Dario, as he will only use Numble or Nimble. Make sure that Riddel is in your party.
Information in this section was contributed by darryl diapolet.

Hint: Defeating Fate:
When facing Fate in Chronopolishave Serge, Grobyc, and Glenn (or a strong physical and element user such as Karsh, Fargo, or Zoha) in your party. They should all have about 350 to 450 HP and accessories that give you more HP. Start by giving Saints to Serge, Grimreaper to Grobyc, and Genie to Glenn. Give all of them Healing Elements and White Elements. Give Serge a few Photonrays. Also have Serge equiped with the Masturmun and Black Plate, Glenn both Enilizers, and Grobyc the Spectral Glove. When you start, Fate will use a countdown from five and does the same pattern of attacks. Fate uses Diminish on the first one, so do not use all of your Techs and strong Elements immediately. Beware of Fate's last attack (when it reaches 0). It is a strong group attack, which is why Serge needs the Black Plate. Once the field is black, have Grobyc cast Grimreaper on Fate. This will do a good amount of damage. Then, hit Fate with a strong White and Black Element, then use X Strike with Serge and Glenn. This will do damage if you have the Mastermun and both Enilizers. Save the level 7 Techs for later. When Fate begins to sag, have Glenn cast Genie. Make sure the field is green. The field will turn all white by having Glenn and Grobyc use White elements, and Serge using Photonray, so he does not use up his stamina. The countdown stops when Fate sags over. When the field is all white, use Saints. This should be more than enough to defeat Fate. If not, your party will be healed and Fate will be close to death. Save your level 7 Techs as a last resort.

Hint: Defeating Giant Gloop:
When you first enter Fort Dragonia, you will eventually fight a giant slime boss called Giant Gloop. If you are low on health when fighting this Boss and are running low on Healing elements that work on the whole party, try this trick, Use the Healing element on Giant Gloop. On the Boss' next turn, instead of attacking you he will use the highest level Blue Healing element he has on your entire party, instantly bringing you back to full health. This works every time. It does not matter what color the Healing element is that you use on him. Any Healing element will make him cure your party.
Information in this section was contributed by T. Dragon.

Hint: Defeating and getting Janice:
Have Sprigg in your party and equip her with the Forget-Me-Not-Pot. Go all over the world and find strong monsters to Dopplegang. All monsters that were defeated by Sprigg can be used in the Grand Slam on the S.S. Zelbess. Monsters from Chronopolis and Dinopolis (Terra Tower) are recommended. The monsters there have high HP and great skills. Also, check the monsters in the Bend of Time.
Information in this section was contributed by NEO ChronaZERO.

Hint: Defeating Lavos:
Use the following trick to make sure that the Boss casts a Yellow element. First, have one of each color in their level 1 element section of the grid. When the fight starts, build everyone up to level 8. Then, cast a Yellow element, and follow up with a Red. Next, defend until the Boss gets its turn. It should follow with a Yellow element. Follow up with the usual list (Red, Green, Blue, Black, then White). Use level 1 elements for these. The best way to do this is as follows. Assuming Serge is in the middle of the party, consider the other two as Character 1 and Character 3. After you get the Boss to use a Yellow element, have Character 1 use a level 1 Red element. Character 1's stamina should be at 0 now. Next, have Character 3 use a Green level 1 element. Character 3 should now be at 0 stamina, but thanks to that turn, Character 1 should have 1.0 Stamina. Character 1 should use a level 1 Blue element, knocking Character 1 pretty much out of the rest of this little array of turns. Then, have Character 3 use a level 1 Black element. Have Serge use a level 1 White element. So far, he has gotten another turn after this. Have him hit the Boss with a weak attack to get him back up to level 8, then use the Chrono Cross. You should now get the good ending.

Hint: Defeating Polispolice:
Allocate the Saints summoning element to Serge. Have Serge power up spell level to 8, wait until the enemy uses one of his spells, and cast Recover All or other white elements until the field effect is all white. Then have Serge cast Saints and it should do about 900 to 1000 HP of damage.
Information in this section was contributed by Devan Neufeld.

Hint: Defeating the Cuscus:
When you are Lynx in the Home World, go to the Shadow Forest. Fight the Cuscus (small creatures that resemble lemurs). Whatever spell you cast at them, they cast back at you. Use Diminish to cut you spell power down and cast a trap spell (such as Inferno). Then, cast it at them. If they live, they will cast it back and be trapped. This is also a good way to get Black Hole early and to get Carnivore. Transform Sprig into a Total Chaos, have another character cast trap Black Hole and then Diminish. The Cuscus will then cast Black Hole for you to trap.

Hint: Defeat Time Devourer (last Boss):
Use elements in the following order of type and it ends the battle: Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, White, Black, Chrono Cross.
Information in this section was contributed by Zimmyzam99.

The following is the easiest way to use the Chrono Cross element effectively on the Time Devourer. This method allows you to get the "good" ending before the Time Devourer can cast its third spell. The only requirements having at least seven level 1 slots on one party member (use Serge) and a blue innate party member. The third member can just stand there. The key is to have fought the correct Vita: Examine the statue of Clotho/Present last; if you get the element "Vigora" after the fight, it is the correct one. If not, restart and try a different order. This element is excellent in its own right and is the key to this strategy. It stops the stamina for the character it targets from reducing. Casting elements takes 7 stamina, but only allows all other characters/enemies to recover about 1; and you need to cast 7 elements in quick succession. Equip a level 1 element of each color on Serge's grid at level 1:

Yellow: Uplift
Red: Fireball
Green: Bushwhacker
Blue: Cure
Black: Turn Black
White: Photonray

Put Chronocross-7 on level 1 also. On the blue Innate, put Vigora on level 6. Put whatever desired in the rest of the slots; you can even leave them empty. Equip whatever raises you hit % and just enough M. Def to survive two Omega Greens, just in case. Start with seven weak attacks from Serge, bringing his element level to 7. Switch to the blue innate and hit with six light attacks; element level should be 6, which just enough to cast Vigora. Defend until Time Devourer casts an element and cast Vigora followed by Uplift, Fireball, Bushwhacker, Cure, Turn Black and Photon Ray. Finish with Chronocross-7.

Hint: Defeating Undead monsters:
There is one powerful element you can get that can kill an undead monster instantly. The element's name is HolyLight. To get this on the first time through the game, buy a couple of HolyLight trap elements from the man in Marbule during the event of the Six Dragons and the Six Relics to the Sea of Eden. Although you can see Miguel (Leena's Father and very tough Boss) use the HolyLight, you will have an opportunity to get it because it is too early. You need to get to Terra Tower and fight the TimeDevourer: Six Dragon Gods. Make sure to have at least one HolyLight trap element in your grid. On the black elemental form, try to trap the HolyLight element at the beginning. Then, use HolyLight on undead enemies to instantly kill them. Here are stats on this element:

Hint: Cat attack:
When selecting a guide to Viper Manor in Termina, select Pierre. When you get to Viper Manor, you wil have some options. You can charge, think of a plan, leave; or can select the blank option directly under "Leave". Select it and Pierre will say he that did not want it to come to this. Serge and your other character will walk off to the side and Pierre will walk off the screen. He will walk back on, bend down, and release two cats. They will circle the guards and run under the gate. The guards will chase them. When you try to enter the Manor, the cats will run back towards you, and you will have to fight three sets of guards.

Hint: Save the forest and make peace with the Dwarves:
To do this, start by saying "Yes" to Korcha when he asks to save Kid. Get Razzly in your party at the Homewrold Hydra Marshes. After that, battle the Dwarves/Hydra normally until you see the dead Hydra/Dwarves on the ground. Do not get the Humour just yet. Press Select until Razzly leads the party and check out the dead Hydra. Razzly will say that it has a baby and that the forest will make it just fine. If you return later, youwill see the baby Hydra running around the pond. After you beat the Ghost Ship, go to the Water Dragon Isle and do everything there with the Dwarves. After you defeat the tank, Kid will mention that the Hydra is not extinct and that the forest will not be destroyed. The Dwarves will not disappear like they usually would and will instead say that they will go back to the forest. Return to the marsh and you will see the Dwarves playing with an even larger baby Hydra.

Hint: Finding Tyrano:
In Gaea's Navel, the Green Dragon will not wake up until you defeat Tyrano (Dinosaur Boss). Defeat every enemy in the forest and return to the entrance. Head north and Tyrano will appear. He is very easy to defeat. Also, if you bought a Sonja trap element from the man in Marbule, you can use it on PreyingMantis to capture it.

Hint: Getting Doc (doctor in Guldove) and Ice Breath:
Refuse to save Kid when she is poisoned. After defeating all the monsters in S.S. Invincible, Fargo will tell you to get some protection before entering Mount Pyre. He will also tell you that such a thing only exists in Water Dragon Island. Return to Guldove and Kid will already be cured cure from the poison -- you do not have to get Hydra Humour for her, and Doc will join you. Go to Opasa Beach and return to Home World. Go to the pier and ask the old fisherman (near Leena) to take you to Water Dragon Island. You will find that the island has been taken over by the dwarfs. Defeat all of them and the Water Dragon will gave you Ice Breath. Use it near the lava and it will freeze it.

Hint: Getting Funguy:
Find the man in a cave under the waterfall in Shadow Forest (Home World). Go through the underground passage toward Viper Manor, to the part where you should have rolled a boulder to stop the bugs from appearing in Another World.

No matter what you do, you will get a Mushroom. Go back to the waterfall and give it to the man. He turns into Funguy and can join your party.

Hint: Getting Greco:
Decide to help Kid from the poisoned wound. By doing this you will have Korcha and the character that you chose earlier for the Viper Mansion section of the game in your party. Once you have gone with Korcha to Termina to help Kid, go to the area where you found the grave of Dario and his father. Once there, you will watch a small funeral where a green man will be citing prayers. This green man, Greco, will then see you and say another prayer to you, concerning the lost child. Follow him into his house and intrude on his discussion. He will see that you are a ghost and will say that he is a helper of people who are dead. He will then offer to join your party.
Information in this section was contributed by Adriaan Scholvinck.

You do not have to choose to save Kid in order to get Greco. Simply go to the grave where you saw Riddel and Glenn. A short scene will ensue, and then you will be able to choose whether or not you want Greco on your team. Considering how many strong characters you do not have, he is a nice addition to your early game party.

Hint: Getting Grobyc the android:
This may be slightly easier if you have more EXP. Defeat Miguel and go to Viper Manor. Find a way to get into jail cells. Save the game and fight Orcha, then five soldiers, then Grobyc, then a tough robotic opponent. After you defeat him, it will wake up and chase you to the library. You will fight him again. Then, Prophet will tell you to go to the ladder. Go up, and after you beat Grobyc he will appear and save you from him. You will jump out the window and land in the barn of dinosaurs.

Luccia is a woman that works in the Viper Manor lab. To get her, after Kid gets poisoned and needs Hydra, do not go to Hydra Marshes in the Home World. Go to Hydra Marshes in Another World and follow the path to the end. You will eventually find two monsters guarding Life Sparkle (a flower that only grows on poison). Defeat them and take the Life Sparkle. Go to Viper Manor in Another World. You will find that no one is there. Go to the lab and release the spy in the cage. Go to the terrace (the location where you escape) to meet Luccia. She will tell you that she is experimenting with the flower in the small pool in front of her, but she does not have Life Sparkle to finish the experiment. After she leaves give the Life Sparkle to the flower in the pool. The flower will come alive and become Neo Fio. She will join you. Return to the lab and talk to Luccia again, and she will also join you. Just in case, when you enter the lab for the first time, release the animal in the corner cage.

Spine: Hydra Marshes
It is impossible to get anywhere in the marshes in this world. However, now there is a hole where you fought the bug in the other world. You will then fight a De-Hydrate. Afterwards, search through the marshes for the bone. You will find it hidden underneath a rise over the acid.
Ribs: Water Dragon Isle and Guldove

Hint: Ozzie appearance:
When you have Flying Arrow for Serge, go to the Bend of Time and cast it. Instead of a large Serge, a large Ozzie from Chrono Trigger will appear.
Information in this section was contributed by Slash.

You can see Ozzie when you use Serge's flying arrow tech at Chronopolis, against the final Boss, in terra-tower, and perhaps in the Dead Sea.
Information in this section was contributed by Devan Neufeld.

This is not Ozzie. It is Masa and Mune, from Chrono Trigger and is the form they take once when they join together when you get the Masamune for Frog. The large image appears only after obtaining the Mastermune for serge, when you cast Flying Arrow.
Information in this section was contributed by wyvernflame.

Hint: Mastermune:
After you get the six Dragon Relics put Karsh in your party and go to Island Of The Damned (another world) and go to where you fought Garai and Solt. Peppor will be there. Defeat them and they will give you the Momento Pendant and Karsh's LV7 tech skill Axomatic. Next go back to the Homeworld with Riddle in your party. Get in your boat and go to the island that has smoke coming from it. The island is near Vipor Manor. It is called the Forbidden Island. Enter it and you will come across a house. Enter it and Dario will be in there. Talk to him and Riddle will give him the Momento Pendant. He will begin to remember things. Then the Mastermune will appear. Dario will pick it up and a battle will begin. Defeat him and your Sea Swallow will transform into the Mastermune. Dario goes to Viper Manor and starts to rebuild it. The Mastermune is the second strongest weapon Serge can have -- you will have a critical hit almost every time.
Information in this section was contributed by Jacob Carver.

Hint: Moonglasses from Harlequin:
Although you can get the Sunglasses from Harlequin at the end of her Boss battle, you can get the Moonglasses instead. To get the Moonglasses, build your element force to Level 3 and use strong elements. You cannot harm her with physical attacks (except for the part when you are building your element force). If you have several strong elements, you could probably get the Moonglasses. The Moonglasses halves enemies' physical damage.

Information in this section was contributed by Kylerpgmaster.

Hint: Steel Swallow, Mail, and Dagger:
Before you go to Viper Manor for the first time, go to Van's house. Behind the staircase is a Profiteer's Purse. Take to the blacksmith and disassemble it to get three Irons. Forge a Steel Swallow, Steel Mail, and Steel Dagger for Kid.
Information in this section was contributed by Catwoman.

Hint: Getting party member back:
On a New Game +, you can use the Relief Charm to have someone in the party, although they left some point in the game. For example, when Kid leaves the party cause of Hydra Poison, before you fight Lynx in Viper Manor, make sure you have Kid replacing Serge via the Relief Charm. Once Kid leaves, she should still replace Serge. Note: Do not check the Relief Charm, because it will revert to Serge. In this way, you can see Kid fight the Hydra to get her own antidote.
Information in this section was contributed by Klawkat.

Hint: Shiny Material:
Simply use your Summon Elements. Remember the Shiny Elements are a byproduct of the Summon Elements. With Salamander, you will obtain Shiny Dew, with Saints you will obtain Shiny Salt, etc. The Shiny Materials are needed to forge the strongest weapons of the game: the Spectral Weapons. Note: The amount of monsters that you kill with the Summon will determine the amount of Shiny Materials that you receive after the battle.
Information in this section was contributed by Alvin Ortiz.

Go to a place where you know the colors of the monsters (for example, El Nido Triangle monsters are blue). Make sure you have a character in your party that is blue and equip them with a Blue Summon Element. All the monsters will cast blue elements, so just attack the monsters until they are almost dead (hanging over), and use the Blue Summon. Keep defending or casting Blue Cures on yourself until the field is blue and hit them with the summon. You will get a "shiny" material for each monster you destroy.
Information in this section was contributed by musikbob.

Shiny Material is used to make weapons along with Rainbow Shell. Go to Marbule in the Home World. Go to the cave where you would normally find the Black Dragon. Note: This will only work after you have freed the island and the residents return. There is a man towards the back and left. He will sell the Master Hammer for 10,000G, which is very cheap. Next, go to Termina in Another World. Go to Zappa's Shop with the Zappa from Home World in your party with the Master Hammer equipped. Talk to Another World Zappa. He and your Zappa will now be able to make weapons and armor out of Rainbow Shell.
Information in this section was contributed by Dragoonsrage.

Using Summon Element is the best way to get Shiny Material, but you still can get this material without it. You can also disassemble accessories. You can get those accessories by stealth from monsters on your journey to get relics and monsters in Terra Tower. For example, Earth Charm from Yellowbelly in Earth Dragon Isle; Paultice Cap and Flame Charm from Catburglar and Lava-boy in Mt Pyre; Forest Charm and Earth Charm from Preymantis and Prehysteric in Gaea's Navel, etc. Make sure Fargo or Kid is in your party.
Information in this section was contributed by Yayat Rahmat Hidayat.

Disassemble Paultice Cap and Flame Charm to get Shiny Ember (and other materials).
Disassemble Antitoxin Cap and Forest Charm to get Shiny Leaf.
Disassemble Antiviral Cap and Sea Charm to get Shiny Dew.
Disassemble Earth Charm to get Shiny Sand.
Disassemble Daemon Charm to get Shiny Soot.
Disassemble Angel Charm to get Shiny Salt.

Here are what you get for using them. It can be any summon -- color only matters, and you have to kill the enemy to get them.
Information in this section was contributed by RedDawg621.

Yellow: Shiny Sand
Green: Shiny Leaf
Red-Shiny Ember
Blue: Shiny Dew
Black: Shiny Soot
White: Shiny Salt

Hint: Easy Magnify Element early:
When you go to Viper manor for the first time, make sure you have Kid in your party when you encounter an enemy called Poltergeist (a giant closet). Use Pilfer against him and you should be able to steal Magnify. If not run, and try again. Note: Magnify is a level 5 White Magic which reduces magic power by 1.5%.
Information in this section was contributed by Mike.

Hint: Getting PhotonRays and MagmaBomb as early as possible:
In the beginning of the game when you wake up, check around the pot in Leena's House. This should be in the watering pot that is next to Pushul's Dog house. You will get your first PhotonRay. Complete the "Scales" quest from Leena and once you are in Another World (once Serge wakes up in Opassa beach with everyone gone), go to Leena's House there. Check the pot where you got the PhotonRay. You should find another one. Then, check out Serge's room, or where it used to be. Look behind the boxes to get MagmaBomb.

Hint: Hidden Boss: Criosphinx:
After defeating Fate, go to the Earth Dragon Isle in Another World. Go to the same location where you battle the Earth Dragon and Criosphinx will appear. You will have to answer his six questions. On the first question, do not attack him -- just defend. Then, use the elements in this order to answer his questions: Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, Black and White. After that he will allow you to leave. You do not gain any growth points or spoils, but now you know which order you must use your elements so your Chrono Cross element will function. Note: Use the elements on that order and then the Chrono Cross element.
Information in this section was contributed by Alvin Ortiz.

Hint: Getting Sunglasses from Criosphinx:
Although the way to defeat the Criosphinx is to answer his questions, there is a special item, the Sunglasses, you can get from defeating it. Just defeat the Criosphinx normally and do not answer his questions. The Sunglasses enable you to attack your enemy in the opposite color. For example, if you are Serge (White Element) fighting Time Devourer, not the 6 Dragons -- but the form that is Lavos and Schala (White Element). Every physical attack that is given to the Time Devourer from Serge (if he is equipped with the Sunglasses) will be a black elemental. Here is a list of the elementals:

Black is the opposite of White
Yellow is the opposite of Green
Blue is the opposite of Red

Hint: Defeating Criosphinx:
Equip the Yellow Plate that you pillaged from the Earth Dragon on your strongest character. Make sure you allocate them with the strongest Gren elements available. Attack him with all your Green elements. Then, just keep using physical attacks.

Information in this section was contributed by NEO ChronaZERO.

Hint: Three Bosses at The Bend Of Time:
Go to the Bend of Time in a New Game+. Go into the back room that you could not enter in the previous game. You will see a very large orange man in the middle of the room. Do exactly what he says, and you will enter a Boss fight with Ozzie, Slash, and Flea from Chrono Trigger. Note: It is a good idea to have the Forget-Me-Not-Pot so you can Dopplegang into Slash. At the end of the battle you will receive a Slasher sword, Dreamers Sash, and Ozzie Shorts. When you get out of the battle you will also have a chance to receive the Dreamers Sarong from the large orange man.
Information in this section was contributed by ZaganRemora and Eric Ball.

Hint: Chaos Field Dimension portal:
The dimension portal to Chaos Field (Sprigg's Home Dimension) is on the second screen. The Astral Amulet will bring you bring you to Chaos Field if you are playing New Game+, are trying to recruit all your previous characters back, have the Chrono Cross, and use it in Sprigg's house.

Information in this section was contributed by NEO ChronaZERO.

Hint: Funny names:
In Termina in any world, go to the Van's house. Talk to his father and note that his name is Gogh (as in Van Goh). If you change the letters in Peppor and Solt, who are always talking about shaking, to get Pepper and Salt.
Information in this section was contributed by bit cloud.

Hint: Z-Slash attack:
To perform this attack, you must have Serge, Kid, and Sprigg in your party. Serge must be able to perform Flying Arrow, Kid must be able to perform Red Pin, while Sprigg needs to Dopplegang into Slash (which is only available in New Game+).
