Is that pre-skeleton Skelator with Panthor there? I guess I could see a Magus/Skeletor connection...Though not with that voice...Could you imagine that squeaker talking about the Black Wind without everyone around him cracking up?

This looks kind of like human Glenn from CT. Or a pretty pissed off version of him anyway.

Magus is the epitome of badassness when it comes to actual mages. In just about every game I've played I was a sucker for the warrior/fighter type. Magus is the ONLY exception in just about everything for me, that alone is saying something. It helps that he wields a Scythe but his overall attitude in CT is just superb.

In terms of gameplay hes great as well, maybe not quite on par with Crono and Frog when it comes to usefulness (healing/reviving). Hes a GREAT damage dealer and his sprite animations are by far the best along with Crono and Frog.

I don't think that Magus is cool.  On the other hand, I find Magil to be pretty damn cool.

Oh, neat. We should do this again. We should make a poll and have select people describe why a character got a certain place and do an updated version of it. Personally, Ayla is probably my second or third favorite character. Dunno why no one seems to like her.

EDIT:

OK, DID IT. EVERYONE PARTICIPATE : D http://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php/topic,7877.0.html

I'm pretty impartial on the subject. I think the revelation that Janus = Magus + Magus = Prophet was really cool the first time I saw it. And the second time. And the third. And of course, his parts with Glenn. Cause Glenn was my dude. Right up into his castle. The interrupted summon was another classic revelation.


But I'm starting to think the question may be referring to temperature instead of what everybody else is talking about. I mean, the guy has a codpiece and a cape and white skin and he lives in the snow now. Yes, yes, he may be 'cool' but I think 'uncomfortable' is a better adjective in this case.  :lol:


Do you like my shoddy Magus recolored version of whatever Keb posted up there was? I still don't know where that original picture came from...

I'm really getting tired of everyone saying that magus is the best character in either of the Chrono games.

I'm really getting tired of how out of every 5 CT fanfics I read, at least 3 center around him.

Am I really the only one who isn't freaking obsessed with Magus? I mean, come on! Sure, he's cool and all, and he's Schala's little brother, but in the end he's just BORING. He has very little Personal Development, and he always acts all stuck up, like he's better than everyone else.


AND HIS HAIR IS PURPLE >:U

1. CT was an SNES game and it's hard to have alot of personal development for a game made in the SNES days.
2. He's Royalty of course he's going to act stuck up it's what they do.
3. Why isn't your hair PURPLE?!

Just my two cents.

This thread was made sometime last year, and I have to admit, after getting familiar with Chrono fandom Magus is pretty awesome.

Magus is cool, but Frog can and does kick his ass!

Yeah, he did a good job of it with Cyrus...and then again crying away his troubles in his hole before Crono & Co. came along and kicked his ass into gear...What was Magus up to during all this? Oh, just putting his life on the line trying to kill LAVOS~!!

The "leading a massive army of Mystics and starting a world war against all of humanity, wherein thousands of people died, simply as a diversion" part was pretty kickass too.

We don't know that he started the war...I still think it was probably the humans...I also don't recall ever seeing him actually lead anything other than in name...
