Ice II (also known as Ice 2 in the SNES/PS version) is the sixth Tech learned by Marle, and one of Magus' starting Techs in Chrono Trigger. Deals Water damage to all enemies, and it consumes 8 MP. It is also an enemy skill.

Animation[]

As Marle Holding her hands together, several sparkles of blue light, resembling snowflakes, orbit Marle. Following this, the screen turns blue and a blue ring bursts from her as two layers of jagged ice crash down on all opponents for moderate Water damage.

Enemy Tech[]

Identical in animation and damage to Marle and Magus' technique, Ice II can be used by Spekkio (fourth and fifth forms), Dalton, and the boss form of Magus, among other enemies. Characters with innate Water-elements, such as Marle and Frog, receive half damage when Water is cast on them. Alternatively, wearing Blue Plates or Blue Vests will convert potential damage done by this tech into Hit Points.

Strategy[]

When fighting Melphyx in the Sunken Desert as part of the quest to restore Fiona's Forest, she can cast Ice II to harden the sand-body of the creature, leaving it vulnerable to physical attacks. While this is useful, Magus' Ice II tech and Frog's Water II tech are equally as useful. However, bringing along all three of these Water Elemental characters ensures that no matter whose turn it is to act, the party can effectively damage the creature.

To reduce the MP cost, the player should equip the Golden Stud, either for Marle or Magus.
