Game Information[edit]

Chrono Trigger[edit]

DS Name: Hero's Badge
Used by: Frog
Effect: Increases Masamune's critical hit rate from 23% to 50%

How to obtain:

A medal carried by true heroes.

The Hero's Medal is a badge or medal worn by heroes of Guardia, or those professing to be heroes. Its origin is unknown, but it was associated with the prophecy that the great hero of Guardia would appear wearing it. Originally in Cyrus's possession, it was later carried by Frog, who, mired in depression and despair, dropped it in the Porre Cafe. Tata's wearing the medal after finding it in this locale provoked his recognition as the savior of Guardia against the Mystics, leading to his visiting King Guardia XXI and attempting to retrieve the Masamune. The Medal was later recovered by Frog, and is last seen in his possession in 600 A.D.

Chrono Cross[edit]

Used by: Pierre
Effects: Evade% +24%
Materials: Cannot be disassembled

How to obtain:

  • Termina (Another) - The first time you go to Termina, talk to Pierre and to the boy outside Zappa's house to get the key item, then give it back to Pierre.

One part of the 3-piece hero's collection. Proves the wearer is a true hero.

Pierre finds the legendary Hero's Medal and wears it on his journeys; the tech Medalsome evokes its image. He briefly loses it to a child in Termina shortly after he arrived to stay with Zappa. Combined with the Prop Sword and Decor Shield, it unlocked his strength and ability.

The concept art drawn for the Hero's Medal in Chrono Cross is wrong. Medalsome evokes the correct image, and on Pierre's battle model, he can be seen wearing the correct medal on his chest.
