Chrono Trigger[edit | edit source]
Raising a character's Magic Defense by 12, it is obtained by using Charm on Flea in Ozzie's Fort and can be worn by any character. Can be obtained twice, since Flea is fought twice in Ozzie's Fort. The in-game description is: "Flea's favorite bustier."
Chrono Cross[edit | edit source]
Exclusive to male characters, Flea's Bustier raises Magic Defense by 13 points and afflicts the wearer with Exhaustion and Cursed. It can be dismantled for 1 Mythril and 10 Feathers or it can be sold for 18180G. Only obtainable in New Game Plus, Flea's Bustier is a rare steal from Flea. The in-game description is: "Flea's undershirt makes him look feminine. (But you can wear it on your head!)".
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
Stemming from the word bust, Bustier is a tight-fitting (often strapless) top worn as a brassiere or outer garment. Unsurprisingly, since this garment belongs to a mage, it boosts Magic Defense. The word bra was omitted from the English version for censorship reasons, although, oddly enough, the cross-dressing aspect of Flea's personality was not considered inappropriate. The word bra was exchanged for the more innocuous bustier in the Chrono Trigger (DS) re-release.
