Doreen (ドリーン "Doreen"?) is a character that appears in Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. She is also the sister to Masa & Mune who lives in the same age as them, 12,000 BC.

"Am I butterfly dreaming I'm a man? Or a bowling ball dreaming I'm a plate of sashimi? Never assume what you see and feel is real!"
— Doreen

Chrono Trigger[]

In Chrono Trigger, she lives in Enhasa and has a quite a liking for dreams. She is very philosophical and taunts Crono's party about their reality. She does not advance the plot.

Chrono Cross[]

In Chrono Cross, she only appears after completing the Dario sidequest and waking Masa & Mune from their sleep. She fuses with them to make sure no evil inhabits the Masamune, thus changing Serge's Sea Swallow into the Mastermune.


  • It is possible that Doreen was created by Melchior because he created her brothers. In fact, much in the same way the Masamune was bestowed with Masa and Mune after Melchior created it, a common speculation is that the pendant was bestowed with Doreen after its creation.
  • Doreen's quote "Am I a butterfly dreaming I'm a poet...or a bowling ball dreaming I'm a plate of sashimi?" is quite similar to a statement made by Taoist writer Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi)
