There's the two sets of Crono, Marle & Lucca ghosts...Lavos & Schala...Lucca's house...Gato in Lucca's house...as for Techs...Frog Prince is like the Frog King......Black Hole (doesn't look or really act much like Magus' Tech though)...Inferno I always thought looked like a fancy updated Flare...The Level 7 Yellow Element Summon is Golem. The Plate armors. The Rainbow equip. Ozzie, Flea & Slash. The Slasher sword. Ozzie Pants. Flea Vest. The Masamune. A crapload of accessories like the Defender, Profiteer Purse, Hero's Medal, Moon & Sunglasses. New Game+.

Probably tons of other junk.

Terra Tower's floatingness could be an allusion the Black Omen.

Or just to Zeal itself. And while I usually don't mind double posts as long as there's a bit of time between posts (which is true in your case), triple is kind of pushing it. Try to just edit your posts instead.

Hey, sorry I figured multiple post would be all right due to the time between.  Additionally (not on this forum but others) I generally avoid editing posts when possible because people think you have changed and/or deleted a previous statement instead of just adding something new. So I will keep that in mind in the future and sorry for the tipple post.

which is why when I edit a post of mine, I try to be nice enough to say what I'm editing for easy reference.

If no one's mentioned it yet, the barrel in the Arni bar / Karsh in Viper Manor yield items if you repeatedly talk to them, like the Kilwala at the Denadoro Mts.

And one of Kid's lines seems to parallel one of Magus's:
Quote from: Chrono Cross
Kid:
   If the world's gonna
   be destroyed, then let
   it be destroyed!
   If history is gonna be
   changed, then let it
   bloody well be changed!
   I'll show you what
   Radical Dreamers
   really dream about!
Quote from: Chrono Trigger
[Magus]
   If history is to change, let it change! If
   the world is to be destroyed, so be it!

   If my fate is to be destroyed...
   I must simply laugh!!

   I'm coming, Lavos!

I don't think we should count techs because there are a lot of similar ones. Those are without the generic ones like blood suck.

Heal like Frog's magic.
Cure like Marle's magic.
Ice Burg looks similar to Ice 2.
Black Hole like Magus's Magic.
All of Leah's attacks.
RedPin is Kid's Tech and Lucca's double tech with Frog.
Of course Slap of Cyrus.
Gorbyc's RocketFist is like Robo's Rocket Punch.
Obviously Luminair.
When you use dopplegang and you are Slash you can use Windslash, Crono's second tech.
The Cybot's Beaten earth is like other earth quake attacks in Chrono Trigger.
Dark Mist is used by Wraiths.
The Black Dragon's Gravity Bomb reminds me of Dark Bomb.
Heat Ray used by fate is similar to the ray that makes those huge flames in Lavos's second form.
MegatonFist used by the Polis Police may be a reference to Robo using the MegatonArm in Chrono Trigger.

Aside from the generic ones, some of them are still clearly allusions to CT, so I think they're still of note. Aside from regular elements and techs that look like other techs, some of 'em are pretty neat. Like MegatonFist, I didn't even think about that one. Very interesting stuff.

I think that's more of an RPG thing than a Chrono thing...Do they say any of the same lines...?

Heat Ray used by fate is similar to the ray that makes those huge flames in Lavos's second form.

That would be the Doors of Destruction or something, right? A few of your other ones have already been mentioned, but good eye on some of the more vague sounding ones. It made me wonder what you meant by "I don't think we should count techs because there are a lot of similar ones." since then you listed numerous Techs (& Elements). >_>

Well a lot of them are RPG things and running out of names or the mistranslation did that. And it doesn't necessarily have to be an allusion.
