  This guide looks into the innards of Chrono Trigger's battle
system. This FAQ was also created by DragonKnight Zero in the
first place - DragonKnight very kindly allowed me to take over
the guide because he got bored with playing Chrono Trigger.

Still this guide is Copyright © 2002 G*Paladin, if you want to
use anything in this guide, please e-mail me first.

What's new in v0.7...????
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
  After a few weeks, i've decided to actually devote some time
to this FAQ; this guide now comes with a fully completed list
of Duel Tech Formulas, as well as a few other Tidbits such as
info on Magus's Doomsickle and some stuff on hacking the game
to get hold of certain items, i've also found a formula, which
can be used to calculate Ayla's attack; that was calculated by
the data that DragonKnight provided in v0.1 of this FAQ; I've
finally managed to calculate the other part to the formula!

To finish with, I must also mention Phoenix 1911, who has gave
me permission to use his info on Lucca's Taban vest and suit;
apart from all this, a few corrections have been made, also I
would like to mention that the info regarding Robo's Crisis
Arm is now correct, something I never tested I suppose!

Anyway, by all means read on; and please if possible, enjoy my
work. I've tried to make this guide understandable, and if you
want, I would be honored to have some good comments sent by
e-mail, or on the Messageboards; and if you have a few tidbits
for me, please by all means get them into my mail box!

Future Hopes....????

# Physical attack damage #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
First off here's how the attack power values are derived. The
attack values can be found next to the weapon icon on the stat
screen - these formula's produce decimal numbers, the decimals
will be rounded up to whole numbers by the game.

For example... A wooden sword has an attack of 3, Crono is at
level one with a power stat value of 5. The attack power once
calculated is 8.33333333 recurring, but the game will round it
up to 8. Basic maths really!!!

For the guys, the formula is:
(PWR × 4/3) + (weapon's attack × 5/9)

For Lucca and Marle:
(HIT + weapon's attack) × 2/3

Last of all; Ayla:
(PWR × 1.75) + (LV² ÷ 45.5)

Have you read how the ATK Power values are derived, if that's
so, you can now work out the expected physical attack damage.
To do this take the ATK Power value, in the above example you
will notice that Crono's ATK Power value is 8. Now to get the
expected Physical attack damage, multiply the ATK Power value
by two. In this case Crono's Expected Physical Attack Damage
is 8 multiplied by 2 - this give's a total of 16.

Remember the formula is (ATK Power × 2) + Random Number!

" I can also tell you of four instance, where all these damage
formulas are ignored. I've prepared a list of all the weapons
below, you may find this little bit of info pretty useful!

Robo's Crisis Arm
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
It's expected damage is Robo's attack, multiplied by the last
digit of his current HP, multiplied by 2.

For example:-

Robo's Power stat = 99, which means his attack power is 132!

We use the following formula; (R¬Atk/2 × Last digit of HP) × 2

Robo's HP, in this example is 564, 4 is the last digit, so you
can now work out the expected damage.

Expected damage = (66 × 4) × 2 = 528

" The game also adds a Random Number, in order to make sure an
attack will never do the same amount of damage too often, this
is strange; and to be honest, I don't have a rule for this but
I know that these exist!

Ayla's Bronze Fist
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This is the best weapon in the game, mainly because it will do
9,999 Damage! on a Critical Hit. I think Ayla's Critical hits
occur often, so you will have a good chance of seeing this!

Lucca's Wondershot
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This weapon randomly changes attack power, it can do either of
the following:-

1/10 × Expected Damage - Very Bad
 1/2 × Expected Damage - Bad
   1 × Expected Damage - Normal
   2 × Expected Damage - Good
   3 × Expected Damage - Cool!!!!!

Magus's Doomsickle
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This weapon appears to get stronger, as your allies drop dead;
you will find this weapon to be much stronger, when two allies
fall in battle:-

   2 × Expected Damage - One Fallen ally!
   3 × Expected Damage - Two Fallen allies!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
# Single Tech formulas #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
For the Magical Techs the formulas given are for enemies with
normal magical defense, with no elemental weaknesses and no
elemental resistances. As for physical techs, any multiple of
damage refers to expected physical attack damage as described
in the previous section.

Each different attacking range has been abbreviated to just 2
letters, the explanations for each abbreviation are below.

1E: Single enemy

EZ: All enemies close to targeted enemy are affected. In this
    game, only one size of Enemy Zone exists.

AE: All enemies

AZ: Ally zone, the Effect area is a range around a caster. As
    for Duel Techs and Triple Techs - I will specify who has
    the attack range around them.

1A: Single ally

AA: All allies

SL: Line from the caster that reaches the target - The Single
    techs, Slash and Flametoss seem to be an exception - these
    attacks effect any enemies in between.

HL: Horizontal line on screen, independent of your characters'
    locations.

Non-Elemtl: This is just short for Non-elemental

  Some Techs have elemental properties which enemies can be
immune to or even weak against. The elements used in Chrono
Trigger, are Lightning, Water, Fire and Shadow. Each of the
Characters has a different element, apart from Robo and Ayla
who for some reason, can attack using elemental attacks!

  All of the formulas given, are reasonably accurate; no one
will ever get any damage formulas 100% correct; because of a
little extra damage, performed by Random Numbers; which the
game appears to add onto the total damage of an attack.

# Dual Techs #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Evolved Single techs maybe, these are the result of two single
techs mixed together, what makes them so hard to understand is
the fact that they can be comprised of both Physical & Magical
properties. For example; you take two single techs, Flare and
Frog Squash, combine them and you get the strongest Dual Tech
which is "Frog Flare"! Rather interesting don't you think???

Notes!
-=-=-=
¤ Magus cannot use dual techs!
¤ They are 45 Duel Techs in total, each character, excluding
  Magus, is involved in 18 Duel Techs each!

"" Below I have put the formulas into tables, hopefully you'll
   manage to make sense of these, coz i've made them as simple
   as possible, here we go..........?

# Additional Magic Resistance #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
  All you characters have their own elements as you know, this
is apart from Robo and Ayla. The Characters that have elements
also have additional Magic Resistance to their own elements.

"" The Percentages may not be 100% correct, but hopefully they
   are nearly spot on - if you can correct them, It will be
   highly appreciated, well here we go....

Ayla and Robo don't have their own elements; but do have Magic
Resistance to certain elements. In Robo's case it's Shadow; he
doesn't have great magic defense though. Ayla doesn't have any
elemental techniques; but has resistance against Fire; Weird.

Crono - 18% resistance vs Lightning
Frog  - 18% resistance vs Water
Marle - 16% resistance vs Water
Lucca - 17% resistance vs Fire
Magus - 20% resistance vs Shadow
Ayla  - 17% resistance vs Fire
Robo  - 20% resistance vs Shadow

  You can also get Magic resistant armours and helmets, in the
case of the Girl's, the Prism Dress is recommended coz it cuts
Magical hits by a 1/3 - with a Prism Dress equipped, sometimes
the damage done to you will be Zero, I don't know why!!!

"" Lots of Magic resistant equipment exists, some will reduce
   damage, some will make you immune to certain elements.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ Helmet / Armour ~ Def ~ Resistance                         ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ Ruby Vest       ~  45 ~ 50% Resistance vs Fire             ~
~ Ruby Armour     ~  78 ~ 80% Resistance vs Fire             ~
~ R'Bow Helm      ~  35 ~ 50% Resistance vs Lightning        ~
~ Mermaid Cap     ~  35 ~ 50% Resistance vs Water            ~
~ Dark Helm       ~  35 ~ 50% Resistance vs Shadow           ~
~ Taban Vest      ~  33 ~ 50% Resistance vs Fire             ~
~ Taban Suit      ~  79 ~ 75% Resistance vs Fire             ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"" We also get armours and helmets that can absorb elemental
   damage - in other words turn the damage into HP!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ Helmet / Armour ~ Def ~ % of Damage Absorbed               ~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~ White Vest      ~  45 ~ Absorbs 50% Damage vs Lightning    ~

# Other Notes #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

¤ When you're in the New Game + mode - equip a Safe Helm and a
  Prism Dress on a female character. She shouldn't sustain any
  damage from enemy attacks - till you get to Magus's Castle.

¤ If you've played Final Fantasy VI you will be familiar with
  the Life 3 spell, the one that can cause reraise status. In
  Chrono Trigger this can only occur two ways, by casting the
  Lifeline Triple Tech or through the Greendream accessory.

  "" Reraise status = Revive with Mag * 5 HP (495HP Max) ""

¤ You can't have Shell and Protect status together on the same
  character, but you can if your equipped with a Safe Helm and
  a Prism Dress. You can cause "Shell" and "Protect" status by
  using certain items. 

  Barrier - "Shell" Status
  Shield  - "Protect" Status

¤ Haste double's a characters speed - however it stops at an
  effective level of 24. DragonKnight Zero say's!!!!

  If you want to be in haste status, but you don't have Marle
  in your party, equip a Haste Helm.

¤ When a character not in the active party gains a level, he
  or she will not gain any experience towards the next level.

¤ Non-active characters will gain 75% of the Experience that
  active members gain. This will happen as soon as a character
  becomes playable, even if the character isn't selectable for
  a while.

¤ Cyrus's Ghost in the Northern Ruins 1000AD; can be damaged
  by Non-Elemental Techniques. I don't know how much HP he has
  though; Still you can actually damage him, if you use Ayla's
  Tail spin technique or the Triple Tech, Poyozo Dance.

¤ Magic enemies, will take more damage, when struck by certain
  weapons. These weapons are as follows;

  Demon Edge 150%, Brave Sword 200%, Demon Hit 200%,
  Pearl Edge 150%, Masamuné 200%!

¤ The Poyozo dance, Spin Strike, Grand Dream, Omega Flare and
  Dark Eternal triple techniques can only be invoked by using
  certain accessories.

  DarkEternal -> Black Rock
  PoyozoDance -> White Rock
  SpinStrike  -> Silver Rock
  OmegaFlare  -> Blue Rock
  GrandDream  -> Gold Rock

¤ Five excluded items exist in the game, you can get hold of
  these items, by using a third party device; like a Savestate
  hacker. Although, I used a PAR code to find these items out,
  and like I said before five exist;

  Dark Saber
  -=-=-=-=-=
  This weapon can be equipped by Crono; it has an attack value
  of 50, and the weapons battle color is Dark Blue; and it has
  the same amount of animation as a Copper sword from Dragon
  Warrior on the Gameboy Color, which to be fair isn't good.

  Rating -> 4/10

  Pico Magnum
  -=-=-=-=-=-
  This weapon can be equipped by Lucca; it has an attack value
  of 20, and it has poor battle animation. Infact, i'm glad it
  was left out of the game; apart from its cool name, this is
  definitely a recipe for disaster!

  Rating -> 2/10

  Graedus
  -=-=-=-
  This weapon can be equipped by Lucca; it has an attack value
  of 60, which will only apply to boss battles. When it comes
  to standard battles, it cuts an enemies current HP in half;
  but after the first cut, it will do normal damage. It seems
  to be a really cool weapon, with decent animation.

  Rating -> 6/10

  Relic
  -=-=-
  This is an accessory, it seems to have the effect as a Sight
  Scope; it tells you the HP of an enemy, so its a replacement
  for a Sight Scope in a way, not very helpful really!

  Rating -> 3/10

  Seraph Song
  -=-=-=-=-=-
  This is an accessory, it recovers 5mp every twenty seconds;
  in battle only. Thats not a bad bonus during large battles,
  like when you fight Lavos, but 5mp isn't much to be honest.
  Still, its not a bad accessory overall!

  Rating -> 7/10

# Special Thanks #
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Special Thanks goes to all these wonderful people, who helped
me make this guide; in their own ways. The main culprit must
be DragonKnight Zero; he did start this guide off after all,
and he has emailed give me loads of tidbits, which happen to
be included in this document!

Now, I'm going to get on with the Special Thanks / Credits
list which can be interesting; if you like to read a FAQ's
Rear-end, or should I say, Ending!

DragonKnight Zero
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
He was the " Previous Author " of this FAQ, lots of the work
in this guide was thank's to him. He was the guy who kindly
allowed me take over this interesting guide, i've never tried
to write anything like this in the past either!!! Any work in
here that he's done is highly appreciated. You may also want
to check out his other FAQ's aswell.

For even more work!
*******************
- Corrections on Tail Spin and Poyozo Dance Techs!
- Giving me tips on explaining Formulas better!

Meowthnum1
-=-=-=-=-=
He's wrote many FAQ's; but he was the one who discovered the
9,999 damage on a critical hit - with Ayla's Bronze Fist. You
can also check his Chronotrigger FAQ, for a little mechanics
stuff provided by me!

Phoenix 1911
-=-=-=-=-=-=
This characters a helpful guy to have around, he allowed me to
use his stuff on Lucca only armours; which as you know are the
Taban Vest and Taban Suit; although until he said I could use
his info; I didn't know how much fire resistance these armours
had, again highly appreciated, you can also check out his cool
FAQ's for two of my favorite Rpgs, CT and Lufia II!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Well, Goodbye!

    Take care of yourselves, and be sure to look out for the
    next version of this guide; which hopefully should be in
    progress soon. Now, I will get out of your face, and you
    can enjoy my little quote from good ol' Magus!

"Play with fire and you get burned" Magus, CT!

   Alright, its not Shakespeare, but I will find a new quote
   soon; the one I wanted to use has already been taken!
