The Gilded Bellbird (also known as Avian Chaos in the SNES/PS version) is an enemy in Chrono Trigger. Appearing in Guardia Forest during the Present if the party has more than one member, this creature appears as a bird with olive-green feathers, clenching a bell in its talons.

Battle and Strategy[]

Gilded Bellbird appear early in the game. Hiding within the trees, the birds emerge once the party comes closer to its hiding spot and squawk to alert two Scarab in the area, who join Gilded Bellbird in battle.

Etymology[]

Gilded means to be plated or overlain with gold, either for ornamentation or to reinforce an objects structure. Because Gilded Bellbird hold a bell made of a gold-colored metal, the name could allude to that. However, the second, less common meaning of gilded is "to give an attractive but often deceptive appearance to". Since Gilded Bellbird ring their bells to cause the Status Effect Confuse, and to lure Scarab closer to the party, this interpretation seems more appropriate.
