The Amanita (also known as Hetake in the SNES/PS version) is an enemy that appears in Chrono Trigger, found in Guardia Forest during the Present. They appear as quadrupedal mushrooms with squat bodies, red truffles, and white spots. Amanita share similar palette swaps with Rubble and Schist, although these enemies are rocks, not mushrooms.

Battle and Strategy[]

Being a very early enemy, it is incapable of dealing large amounts of damage and is easily killed. Amanita is easy to defeat even at Level 1. Thus, normal attacks will work just fine. Found predominantly in Guardia Forest, these mushrooms can be encountered several times, in batches of three, to increase the Tech Points Crono and Marle have at the game's start. This allows the player to unlock valuable techs such as Aura Whirl and Wind Slash far before they should be naturally acquired, decreasing the difficulty of many boss battles later in the game.

Name Etymology[]

Amanita is a genus that contains 600 different species of mushrooms, including some extremely toxic species that can cause liver failure and/or death, in real life. It's fitting seeing as the monster Amanita resembles a mushroom.
