Magus' Lair Question

At the top of Magus' Lair in CT we the statue of a dragon... How could that be, if dragons didn't exist yet in that timeline?

I asked myself the same question once but about the Guardia's Dragon Tank... The only answer that I can think of is that in the CT world, dragons are legendary creatures, which could have been inspired by the dinosaurs or folklore. Kinda like in our world. There are also statues of men with demon wings in Magus' Castle and in the Ocean Palace.

Yeah, I never even thought of that...But yeah, there are no such things as dragons in our dimension and yet we still have lore and statues of them, so it makes perfect sense that there would be some in the others...

A lizard's a lizard's a lizard. Be it terrible or giganto or flying or breathing fire. *Har har*

Don't forget that Guardia's crest is also a dragon.  =)

Yeah.  It's pretty interesting when you learn about how different images and symbols pop up in various cultures.  Some people call it "the collective unconscience", but it might be that the Crono world has something like that too.

This one might not be legendary... it looks very much like a Dactyl...
