I don't agree he deserves a high place because he is a pirate.  There are a lot of lame pirates out there...

Well, this just proves that Chrono Cross has something for everyone.  Case in point: I think Mojo's really nifty and think Janice is terrible... I onced ranked all the characters in order as well, it was on Chrono Shock... sadly, the original forum is dead at the moment and I can't access that post.

well, you separated that aspect of his design to make an argument that he isn't unique, even though this aspect is an intrinsic result of his glam-rock status- which for an RPG is quite unique, even if you don't like it.

I don't really care enough to look it up.  They're both wonderful games, and how well they sold has no bearing on that.

I don't think I said I hate him...but he has faults and thus is obviously not (even close to) an A character.

I didn't say you did... I said you were hating on his magical guitar and androginous appearance- his more controversial aspects. ;)

They can't.  I'm sure a lot of people first experienced Chrono Trigger through a ROM, as I did.

Well, I think he's reminds me of David Bowie. And I love David Bowie.  But I liked Nikki even before I started listening to Bowie.

He's a colourful, fun character with style.  He's got a good chunk of dialogue, story, and a strong connection to the world of characters. 

And yet you insist on hating on his magical guitar and his androginous look. Fine.  The fact that he's so controversial just confirms that he's special, I suppose.

So you mean you like it in the sense that if you did kill Magus, it would indicate that Glenn's character was actually petty and shortsighted and the Schala hack explores realistically this version of Glenn? Hmm...

It would have been funny if could choose not to fight Magus, and then also choose not to let him in your party. 

"Let me come with you"
"No."
"Why not?"
"Because we don't like you"
"But you need my knowledge, I can help you save Crono."
"Nah, we'll figure it out somehow. Later"
"...!"

And he just stands there lonesomely on the cape, thinking about what to do next...

Hahah, thanks for your understanding.  I don't really remember all that well though, it's been like a year since I last played Chrono Trigger.  I am sure, however, that his losing HP still strengthens Frog Flare quite a bit, and in a regular game it was worthwhile to have him below half health.

If you want to define it as ridiculous.  I don't see anything at all unpleasant about connecting words together to form a single noun.  It makes sense from a grammatical perspective.  (oh, and it doesn't sound longer if you say it out loud) 

The connecting of words is not really the reason I love German, though...

I like what they're doing in Kajar with Glenn at Magus' death in the Schala hack. Where he finds that the joy he was chasing in killing Magus wasn't there to begin with.

The Other Promise from Kingdom Hearts 2 comes to mind.

Oh, that sounds really out of character.  It never seemed to me like Frog was under the illusion of having the "thrill of the hunt".  He pursued Magus to avenge his best friend, and to defend his Queen, King, and homeland- all of which should still have meaning later on.  Once you find out about Lavos and Magus' motivations, it doesn't make much sense to kill him.

How did Marle manage to be sexy in that language?

Very easily for me, but I know a lot of people dislike German...

in German, you stick often stick words together so you get one long word instead of several smaller ones. (Favorite videogame Character is essently one noun if you think about it.  Except maybe for "favourite", but in German this is attached to the noun instead of treated as an adjective)

Anyway, I just said pretty much the same thing I said in English, so you don't have to get all worked up. ;)

Hahah, that sounds boring. But I suppose for NG+, you just want to get through as efficiently as possible.  But I thought that Frog Flare only does as much as "Flare" when Frog's at full HP...

I think you're nit-picking.  Obviously some kind of wireless-micro-amp technology exists in the Chrono Verse, like all the other fantastic things, and you just get over it.  And Nikki has magical powers, maybe he just powers his guitar with those... gosh.

He's a rock star who gives theatrical, plot-driven shows.

Nikki on the other hand is quite unique for an RPG character... I suppose he's more controversial as a result.
