Gato is an enemy in Chrono Trigger that can be found at Leene Square in the Present. He is a training robot built and maintained by Lucca. The player can fight him in a mock fight for a few Experience Points as well as 15 Silver Points. He sings to his opponents immediately before and after the battle. A spring-loaded fist ejects from his navel to hit nearby foes, and he has an appearance similar to a cat. Exiting Gato's Arena before receiving Silver Points for defeating him will cause Gato to not reward the party with any Silver Points.

Gato is seen seriously injured in Lucca's Orphanage, and he dies (or fizzles out) after he informs Serge of the events at hand.
