In Chrono Trigger, Crono primarily uses lightning-based magic. His innate magical ability allows him to cast spells that harness the power of electricity.

Crono’s lightning magic is particularly effective against enemies weak to or vulnerable to electricity. It can exploit their weaknesses and deal extra damage. Additionally, lightning magic can bypass certain enemy defenses or resistances associated with physical attacks.

It’s worth noting that while Crono specializes in lightning-based magic, he is primarily known for his formidable swordplay and his physical techs. His magical abilities complement his overall combat prowess, allowing him to unleash devastating attacks and provide versatile options during battles.

Crono’s Double Techs

In the game Chrono Trigger, double techs are powerful cooperative abilities that can be performed by two characters working together. These techniques require both characters to be in the active party and have enough Tech Points (TP) to execute the skill.

Each character has different combinations with unique effects. Discovering and mastering these double techs adds depth and strategy to the game’s combat system.

Crono’s Triple Techs

In Chrono Trigger, triple techs are even more powerful cooperative abilities that involve three characters working together. Similar to double techs, triple techs require the participating characters to be in the active party and have enough Tech Points (TP) to execute the skill.

Each combination offers a unique and devastating attack that can turn the tide of battle. Discovering and mastering these triple techs adds an extra layer of strategy and excitement to the game.

When to have Crono in your Party

In Chrono Trigger, there are several enemies that are vulnerable to lightning-based attacks. Exploiting their weakness to lightning can result in dealing extra damage and gaining an advantage in battles. Here are some notable enemy types or specific enemies that are vulnerable to lightning in the game:

  1. Robot Enemies: Many robotic enemies or enemies with mechanical attributes are particularly susceptible to lightning-based attacks. These enemies often have a weakness to electricity due to their nature. Examples include R-Series robots, R-Series Prototype, and Guardian robots.
  2. Blue Imps: Blue Imp enemies are weak to lightning-based attacks. These enemies are often found in areas such as Heckran Cave or the Ocean Palace.
  3. Kilwala: The enemy Kilwala, found in the Giant’s Claw, is vulnerable to lightning. Exploiting this weakness can be beneficial in defeating them quickly.
  4. Giga Gaia: Giga Gaia, the boss encountered in the Black Omen, is weak to lightning. Utilizing lightning-based attacks against it can help expedite the battle.
  5. Magus (Boss): During the boss battle against Magus, he is susceptible to lightning-based attacks. Taking advantage of this weakness can make the battle more manageable.

These are a few examples of enemies or enemy types vulnerable to lightning-based attacks in Chrono Trigger. It’s important to observe enemy behavior, look for visual cues, or gather information from NPCs to identify elemental vulnerabilities. By strategically using Crono’s lightning-based magic and coordinating with other party members, you can exploit these weaknesses and gain an upper hand in battles.
