I think part of the appeal concerning Magus is that out of all the Chrono Trigger characters, Magus seems to have the most story behind the character.  I mean, compare what we know about Magus and what we know about Crono.  Also, Magus has this badassity/tragic character components that we, as humans, seem to find so attractive and appealing.

Plus, this was one of the first games EVER to let you play as a boss you fought earlier in the game. That's what made him so alluring to me.

I agree.  The only game I've played that let you do that prior to CT didn't give the characters a personality.  If not for that twist, Magus wouldn't be anywhere near as cool as he is; he'd just be a particularly stubborn villain with a tragic past and a record of unbroken failure at all his schemes.

Changing the topic a bit, am I the only one who sees a proto-Magus in Necrosaro (Dragon Warrior IV)?  Pretty badass, tragic story, involved in the plot, and after a certain revelation at the very end of the game I wanted to turn him into an ally. The remake *spoiler spoiler*. Much better than Golbez, who appeared the following year.

Hey, Magus is cool! I mean, he got purple hair  :lee:
Now without kidding. Magus is pretty cool, maybe the mystical character too.
But he is not so cool as the old men (I forgot his name)  at the end of time.

Yeah, I know... *sighs*
It would solve a lot of problems, including, but not limited to: over-sized sigs, spoiler-sensitive info(obviously), unnecessarily used post space(i.e for specific audiences, large images, etc.), NSFW material, among other things...

Also one of the first games that makes you lose his 9999 HP and all of his attacks that he had in the boss fight.  ~_~

I don't like how my name is quoted in that Quote Pyramid.  All I said was "And there's that!  :D"
