Heckran is a boss in Chrono Trigger. First appearing in Heckran Cave during the Present, Heckran is a giant, blue-skinned creatures with large claws and teeth. Only Magic-based Techs harm it. A Heckran can be seen on the US cover box art fighting Crono, Marle, and Frog.

In Radical Dreamers: Nusumenai Hōseki, the Goblin guards in Viper Manor mention a Heckran infestation in the Kitchenette to lure Kid out of a pile of gold coins, in which she had been hiding.

Boss Battle Strategy[]

Heckran possesses strong magical techs. While battling the Heckran in Heckran Cave, it says, "Go ahead! Try and attack!" and refrains from attacking the party members. During this if the player attacks Heckran, it counters with Water II, which deals large amounts of damage. Alternative turns between attacking and healing ensure that the powerful counter does not knock-out them out. After a brief period, a caption saying, "brief counterattack break" appears, signaling the end of this counter-attack phase of the battle. At this time, it is advised to unleash the party's most powerful techs.

Lavos Form[]
