I like Magus, he's cool, but definitely not the best.  Although his song is my second favorite song in CT.  He has cool aspects to him, but not the best by a long shot.

The topic isn't "Is Magus the best?"...it's basically "Is Magus cool?"...which he clearly is. I mean, basically 7 pages of people saying, "Yer damn right he is!" 8)

True.  He has interesting things to him, but he's not so (Will not quote language)good as other people say.  In my opinion.

Magus is cool, Schala is cool. Deep stories, deep characters. And blue hair. LOTS of blue hair.
I personally prefer Schala, actually. But Magus and Schala aren't even my favs. Crono and Marle are up there for me. So is Cyrus, Cyrus is awesome, freakin Nova Strike. 8)

Was always more of a Robo guys myself, now THAT guy has some funk in his theme song . . .

The only reason I really didn't care for magus much, was that a large portion of his techs, something that really makes a character special, consisted of techs from OTHER character . . .

I guess it's cool on some characters, but Magus didn't really seem like the type to, have all sorts of magic. I would've rather seen him have a bunch of dark-type magic, maybe even things like DARK-lightning, ect ect ect.

He is a master of all of the Magics, thus his Shadow innate. Combine 2 Magics & ya get Shadow, more or less. It also gives him a decided advantage against enemies w/innate-specific weaknesses.

See now even that I could see. BUT, my issue with that would be, then, have some unique elemental abilities that crono, lucca, and marle don't have . . . otherwise it just kinda feels like a half-baked character.

Magus really isn't all that fleshed out anyways to be honest. All we really know is the tight family plan that just throws him over ;-)

We know his motivations & his history, though...a lot of other things we're given glimpses of or told about through 3rd parties. He's one of the most developed characters in the party...>_>

Yeah actually now that I think of it, really, Frog is pretty heavily explored, Marle too . . .

It's ironic that the real protagonist of the game speaks naught ;-)

But yes, Magus IS pretty thoroughly explored now that I think on it further, in fact, I'd say a great deal of the game revolves around him and his magic-addicted family, er, mother.

Probably the least explored character of the ones you have is Ayla.
Followed by Robo, then Crono, then Lucca, Frog, Marle, and Magus is probably the most explored.
My guess is that it's because he's not only a main character but he's also a villain and usually whenever a villain is about people will ALWAYS talk about them.

How is Crono above anyone again...? Robo gets a lot more than he does...I could even make a good argument for Ayla as well, whose development is always underrated (I think because even though she is developed, she's still a very 2 dimensional character...go figure)...
