The following is a list of all the Featured Article on the Chrono Wiki. A featured article is displayed on the front page of the Wiki from the first of the month till the first of the next month. Articles are chosen if they are well written and have plenty of information. Ideally, the profile must not contain redlinks, redirects, missing images, shown incomplete or have any empty sections and coding errors. This is basically to show the best this wiki has to offer. Voting for Featured Articles may be found here.
Zeypher is in charge of the featured articles, and any questions about them should be directed at him.
Melchior, known in Japan as Bosch (ボッシュ,Bosshu?), also known as the Guru of Life, is one of the three Gurus that lived during the Antiquity. In Chrono Trigger, Melchior is one of the three Gurus of Zeal in the Antiquity. He is known as the "Guru of Life". When the Mammon Machine was activated, it began absorbing too much power. Queen Zeal and Schala along with the three Gurus were the only ones at the Mammon Machine's activation. The Gurus warned about of a dimensional vortex, a power humans cannot control, and they would be dragged into a rift in time, yet the Queen persisted in activating the machine. Soon, Janus entered the room for Schala. Suddenly, the six were transported in front of Lavos. Gates then appeared and transported Belthasar, Gaspar, Melchior, and Janus to different times. Belthasar was sent to the Future, Gaspar was sent to the End of Time, Melchior was sent to the Present, and Janus was sent to the Middle Ages. (more...)
Serge (セルジュ, Serge) is the lead protagonist of Chrono Cross. He, just like Crono, is a silent protagonist. Serge's existence is a contradiction between the dimensions the basis for much of the philosophical discourse in Chrono Cross. Born to Marge and Wazuki of the fishing village of Arni in the El Nido Archipelago, Serge had a storied history with the world since before he knew how to write. At the tender age of three years old, he came into contact with the Frozen Flame as a result of his father Wazuki's desperation to heal his son after he had been mauled by a panther demon. The contact healed him and designated him as its Arbiter, or controller; this caused the Frozen Flame to be unusable by the supercomputer FATE due to the Prometheus Circuit. Due to its obviously advanced technology, it had no problem binding both Miguel, a friend of Serge's father, and eventually Wazuki himself into cruel servitude. For the time being, however, Serge escaped unharmed with Wazuki, who was only mildly corrupted by the computer. Back in Arni, Serge became good friends with Leena, Miguel's daughter, and the other inhabitants of the village, who took interest in watching him grow. Forces beyond his control would soon threaten his life again, however.
The Fiendlord's Keep (also known as Magus' Castle in the SNES/PS version) is a location in Chrono Trigger that appears in 600 AD. It is Magus' castle and, according to legend, is home to 100 monsters.
Being the heart of the fiend world, the castle is permeated with magic. At first, there are two wings accessible. They can be completed in either order. The West Wing is populated with monsters who use mostly physical attacks, leading up to the battle with Slash. The East Wing is populated with monsters who use a great deal of magic, ending in the encounter with Flea.
After both wings have been completed, returning to the main hall will reveal a secret entrance to a third, central wing, hidden behind an illusion. This third wing is filled with traps of Ozzie's devising. After passing all of his traps, you will come face to face with the general. Defeating him is trivial, as you can use his traps against him and drop him into the basement through a trap door. This opens the way to a stair that descends into the catacombs beneath the keep, leading to Magus' sanctum.
FATE is a supercomputer which was created by Belthasar made from Robo in the distant future. Based on the old Mother Brain circuit boards, FATE is self-aware and can operate alone. Referred to as the Goddess of Fate by the people of El Nido, FATE operates as an unseen villain until late in the game.
In Chrono Trigger, FATE's original form was of the holographic artificially intelligent Mother Brain, which governed the future's robot population. Because the Day of Lavos will no longer occur (following the first game), this event is erased from existence.
Following the Time Crash, FATE would not risk discovery of Chronopolis or the Frozen Flame by populations of the past, which could compromise her creation in the future. It took every measure to prevent this, sealing off the Sea of Eden. FATE created the islands comprising El Nido through...(more...)
