Game Information[edit]

Chrono Trigger[edit]

Full Name: Johnny
Age: Indeterminate, possibly 400 years
Species: Robot
Home Time: 2300 A.D.
Home Area: Lab 32

Johnny is a fast-talking, speed-racing robot of Lab 32. He's always looking for a good opponent and basks in the compliments he receives from his Proto 2 fan club. Sporting a mohawk and sunglasses, he's self-absorbed and highly competitive. When Crono and the party attempted to use the Jetbike to cross the ruins, Johnny confronted the group and permitted them to use the bike on the condition that they race. Should the party lose, they will be met with various put downs from THE MAN, as his fans call him. Beating him merely increases his desire to ride again.

While his characterization is somewhat shallow in Chrono Trigger, it's made much more in-depth through the Chrono Trigger OAV. Johnny's up to his old tricks in racing and loving the attention he gets, but a few surprises await -- in the form of a rampant Gato, an absent-minded Nu, and a hyperactive Poyozo. Of special mention is his haiku shortly before he's injured.

   アオキスイセイ ジョニー。
Boss: My Name IS...…
   The blue comet, JOHNNY.
   I'M THESE GUYS' Boss......

Johnny calls himself "The Blue Comet" in the Chrono Trigger Prerelease; this doesn't appear in the final.

   オマエラ マタキタノカ。[END]
   サァ 勝負ダ ギンギンダゼ!
Robots: HM?
   YOU'VE all returned HUH.

Johnny: I WAS waitin'!
   WELL then, RACE TIME!
   SPARKLIN', baby!

This short intro appears if you enter Lab 32 from the south, and was probably shown as a mini-intro each time you came back to Lab 32. It probably became tiresome to see all the time, and was removed from the final version of the game.

Chrono Cross[edit]

Home Time: 15420 A.D.
Home Area: Dead Sea

Johnny makes a cameo, though it is by no means indicative of his happy, edgy style. His defunct and broken body is littered along the roadside of the ruined future Dead Sea near the enemy Highwayman.
