The Aecytosaur (also known as Gigasaur in the SNES/PS version) is an enemy in Chrono Trigger. First appearing in the Giant's Claw in the Middle Ages, Aectyosaurs share the same sprites as Terasaurs. Bulky and rotund, these dinosaur-like creatures sport green-colored skin and with yellow chests and bellies. Their head is narrow and their eyes are at the sides, similar to a bird or reptile. Their nose is pointy with a brown tip. Additionally, on either side of their head brown-tipped ears, resembling those of a feline. At their backs are two small wings and a big, heavy tail. Ironically, these wings would be incapable of lifting their massive weight in flight.
Battle and Strategy
Aecyto-, in the name, is an adaptation of the Latin prefix Alecto- which refers to dinosaurs with horns. While -Saur is the Latin suffix for lizard.
