Did You Know?


In the US/Canada version of the game, after completing the game once players may encounter a battle with three characters returning from Chrono Trigger: Slash, Flea, and Ozzie. These characters are (obviously) named after rock legends: Slash of Guns 'N Roses, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ozzy Osbourne. They are also a mistranslation; in the original Chrono Trigger, they were named after condiments (Mayonnaise, Vinegar, and Soy Sauce). However, thinking that the joke would not go over well, translator Ted Woolsey changed the names. See more »
