Frog, also known as Glenn, is a playable character in Chrono Trigger. As a knight and a frog-human hybrid, he utilizes water-based magic known as “Water” or “Water-type” magic. Frog’s magic abilities focus on manipulating water and ice to attack enemies and provide support to his allies. Here are some of Frog’s notable water-based magic abilities:

  1. Water: Frog’s basic water magic attack. It launches a watery projectile at a single enemy, dealing water-based damage.
  2. Slurp: This ability allows Frog to heal himself or an ally by absorbing HP from a target. It is particularly useful when low on health during battles.
  3. Slurp Cut: Frog combines his sword attack with a healing effect. It damages enemies and restores HP to Frog and his allies simultaneously.
  4. Water II: Frog’s stronger water-based magic attack. It releases a more powerful surge of water to hit multiple enemies and deals greater damage than the basic Water attack.
  5. Frog Squash: This is Frog’s most powerful physical attack, but it is not a magic spell. However, it is worth mentioning because it harnesses Frog’s affinity with water, as he plunges his sword into the ground, creating a large water column that damages enemies.

These are some of the water-based magic abilities that Frog utilizes in Chrono Trigger. His unique skills and magical attacks make him a versatile character in battle, especially against enemies weak to water or ice-based attacks.

  1. Octopods: These enemies can be found in various locations, such as the Fiona’s Forest or the Sunken Desert. They are weak against water-based attacks.
  2. Rubbles: These enemies are encountered in the prehistoric era, particularly in the Tyranno Lair. They have a weakness to water attacks.
  3. Giga Gaia: This boss enemy, fought in the Giant’s Claw, is weak against water-based attacks. Utilizing water abilities or items can be effective against it.
  4. Mud Imps: These enemies can be encountered in places like the Magic Cave or the Lost Sanctum. They are vulnerable to water damage.
  5. Lavos Spawn: These enemies, encountered throughout the game, are weak against water attacks. Utilizing water-based magic or abilities can deal significant damage to them.
