5 PlayStation RPGs Trivia - VGFacts Five Trivia
In the DS version, it's possible to defeat the special boss Spoiler:the Dream Devourer found in Darkness at the End of Time by healing. The boss has 32000 HP; the game's HP value is a 16-signed integer (it cannot be higher than 16 bits, and one of those bits only indicates the sign of the number it represents). By using powerful magic that the boss absorbs during its second phase, it can be temporarily healed past 32767 HP (the maximum HP limit for all characters in the game), which overflows the HP counter and turns the boss's HP into a negative number. Since the boss has less than 0 HP, it will be considered "dead" and the battle will end.

For video game magazine Game Informer's issue featuring their review for Chrono Trigger, they were planning to include a full cover spread featuring exclusive custom Chrono Trigger artwork by the game's artist, Akira Toriyama. Despite the game's publisher, Square Enix, agreeing on it, a week before it was to be made they informed Game Informer that Toriyama had decided not to do it in fear that due to his drawings being worth a lot they will most likely be sold on the black market. Lunar: The Silver Star was featured on Game Informer's cover instead.

There is a cut location called Singing Mountain that was originally going to appear in the Prehistoric era. It also includes an unused song sharing the same name. The dungeon and accompanying song ended up being cut because the dungeon itself didn't contain much, nor did it advance the story.

Massato Kato stated in a Chrono Trigger Ultimania interview that he and Yuji Horii intended for Crono Spoiler:to stay dead after the Ocean Palace scenario. The party would have to then retrieve a version of Crono pre-dating the Millennial Fair to complete the quest, and then return him to his home time, Spoiler:bitter-sweetly knowing he would go on to die at the Ocean Palace. Square deemed this too depressing and had them write the clone plot device to save him.

Two soldiers called Vicks/Biggs and Wedge appear in Chrono Trigger, as employees in Norstein Bekkler's Tent of Horrors. This a reference to both Star Wars and Final Fantasy VI.

Despite his gigantic outward appearance and the scope of his power, the core of Lavos is surprisingly miniscule. In the final battle the player is led to believe the center creature is the core, but the true core is actually on the right, mirroring the appearance of the left Lavos Pod. It will continue to revive the center and left Pods until the Core itself is defeated.

After beating the game you have the option to replay using everything you acquired through your first play through. Using this to beat the game's main villain at the very beginning of the game will unlock a secret ending where you meet the game's developers at the End of Time.

There have been two non-profit fangames which received a substantial amount of coverage that were ultimately shutdown by Square Enix.

The first was Chrono Resurrection, a 3D remake of the original for PC, Xbox, Gamecube and the Nintendo 64. The second was Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes, a ROM hack of the original game which served as a sequel set five years after.

Both projects were stopped in 2004 and 2009 respectively, after receiving a cease and desist letter from Square Enix. An alpha version of Crimson Echoes has since been leaked online.
