In the game Chrono Trigger, Marle (whose full name is Princess Nadia) is a character who specializes in using magic spells. Her magical abilities are focused primarily on healing and support but she is an ice based magic user. Here are the types of magic Marle can use:

  1. Ice Magic: Marle can cast various ice-based spells, such as Ice, Ice II, and Ice II. These spells allow her to deal ice damage to enemies and potentially freeze them, reducing their ability to act in battle.
  2. Healing Magic: Marle is proficient in restorative magic, allowing her to heal the party’s wounds. She possesses spells like Heal, Cure, and Cure II, which can restore HP (Hit Points) to the party members and cure status ailments.
  3. Support Magic: Marle also possesses spells that enhance the party’s abilities. For example, her Haste spell can increase the speed of allies, allowing them to take more actions in battle. She also has access to spells like Aura, which restores a character’s MP (Magic Points) over time.
  4. Dual Techs: In Chrono Trigger, characters can perform powerful combination attacks called Dual Techs by combining their abilities. Marle has several Dual Techs with other characters that utilize her ice and healing magic, such as Antipode (with Crono) and Ice Sword (with Frog).

Marle’s magical abilities make her a valuable asset in battle, as she can heal and support the party while also dealing damage to enemies.

When to have Marle in your Party

In Chrono Trigger, there are several enemies that are vulnerable to ice-based attacks. Marle being the only Ice user in the game it would be a good idea to have her in the party when facing these enemies. Using ice-based abilities against these enemies can be particularly effective, inflicting additional damage or exploiting weaknesses. Here are some examples of enemy types that are commonly vulnerable to ice:

  1. Blue and Red Imps: These small imp enemies are weak against ice attacks.
  2. Blue and Red Eaglets: Eaglets are bird-like enemies found in various areas of the game, and they are susceptible to ice damage.
  3. Megasaur: This dinosaur enemy is weak against ice-based attacks.
  4. Masa & Mune: The twin sword spirits are vulnerable to ice-based attacks.
  5. Heckran: This boss enemy encountered in the Mystic Mountains is weak against ice.
  6. Son of Sun: This fiery enemy is vulnerable to ice damage.
  7. Ice-related enemies: Many ice-based enemies, such as the Ice Bat, Ice Sculpture, and Freezable enemies, are naturally weak against ice attacks.

It’s important to note that not all enemies in Chrono Trigger have elemental vulnerabilities, and some enemies may even resist or nullify ice-based attacks. Additionally, certain bosses and powerful enemies may have specific elemental resistances or weaknesses that differ from the norm. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to assess the situation and adjust your strategy accordingly in battles.
