Was Ayla pregnant throughout Chrono Trigger?
« on: March 28, 2012, 08:10:50 am »
Um, I was looking on the TV Tropes site about Chrono Trigger, and it claims at one point that the game hints that Ayla was pregnant during the ENTIRE game. I don't remember seeing this in the game script and was wondering if anyone could clear this up for me. Any help would be appreciated. :D

Nah, I don't think there's any direct 'hint'.
It is mentioned in game, Kino will become the chief when 1) Ayla gives birth to a baby or 2) Ayla dies.
And he actually became the new chief in game, althought it might because Ayla joined Crono's team so she couldn't perform her duties as a chief.

What do you think about that?

Hm, I remember reading that thing. If I remember correctly, said 'hint' was after defeating Nizbel, when she... throws up/passes out? I no longer remember exactly, but it was what happened to her after Azala returns the Gate Key and leaves.

Though personally, they did party out all the night before and drank alcohol so maybe it just took her longer to feel the hangover.  :lol:

Eh, yeah, nevermind...

Thanks! :D I didn't know whither I could trust the sites info or not, seeing as how a lot of sites just put rumors out without doing any research. I'm not too for sure if it's true either, but it bothered me a bit so I thought I'd ask the Compendium. I think it would be a bit weird if she was, but it is a video game, so certain things don't always apply. :lol:

 First of all you're reading this off of TVtropes. Second, Other sources on TVtropes say it is more likely that Ayla was just hung over: Someone desperately wishes Ayla was pregnant the entire time and thus did not properly document the above statement.

Captain B, I think you're right. :) I didn't think I would have forgotten something like that. Thanks for clearing it up for me. :D

[Schala]
   I have been waiting an eternity...
   just for this very moment...~

   Meaninglessly hurting one another...
   The disappearing life-forms...

       The words
           that become deleted...
       The thoughts
           that become buried...
       The pool of cells
           that slowly evaporate...
       The echoes of consciousness
           that slowly fade...

   Love to hate...
   Hate to love...
   Why are we born?
   Why do we die?
    
   Evolution?
   The '"survival of the fittest?"'
   What is there to be achieved from
   harming one another...
   killing one another...

   The '"eggs"' that we call planets...
   And the innumerable '"spermatozoa"'
   which gather around these
   that we call life-forms...
    
   When one of those countless seeds
   inseminates a planet,
   a new universe is born.
  
   But until that occurs,
   hundreds of millions of years will pass,
   and innumerable life-forms will be born,
   then die...

   That is the be-all and end-all.
   Everything exists for that one moment.
   All so that the universe can evolve
   into the next dimension...

   Does that make us all just pawns?
   Are each of our short lives
   nothing but a cheap sacrifice
   just so the one chosen life-form
   can be born?

   No. That is not the case!
   Each and every one of us
   has a chance of becoming
   that one chosen life-form
   which inseminates a planet.
   Yes, it could be '"you"'...
  
   Genes and environment...
   Each of us tries to do his best
   under the limited conditions
   we are each dealt.
    
   Each life-form that attempts to
   eke out a decent life for itself
   forms a link in the golden chain
   that leads to the creation of
   a new universe.

   If one link is missing,
   there will be no future.
    
   There is no such thing as
   a useless life-form...
   No such thing as
   a pawn!

   Every single thing
   in the whole of nature
   is perhaps just dreaming
   a dream of '"life"'...
    
   All of them are also
   perhaps nothing more than
   a dream dreamt by the planet
   before it is born.

   Oh, but yes...
   Eventually all dreams
   will return to Zurvan...
   to the sea of dreams...

   Serge...!
   Don't go yet, Serge...!!!
   It's alright.
   Everything is alright now.

   Time, which has been divided,
   will be unified again now.
    
   The time for farewells has come...
   You will lose all memory of
   this whole adventure
   and return to your own time.
    
   But this time, you will be able
   to live your own life!

Schala was pregnant during Chrono Trigger. The "father" was Lavos. In this speech, she's speaking with the mind of Schala and the Time Devourer, trying to explain that Lavos' species that's usually thought of as parasitic is actually attempting to push the entire universe into an advanced dimension, outside of death and time like Lavos is. Just like how the joining of sperm and egg creates a new life more evolved than either parent. She says that even though not everyone can become part of Lavos like she is, their lives are not meaningless (see parallels to "We have our own will!" speeches from Trigger).

Schala is Lavos, and she hates and loves you all. Especially their daughter, Kid.
