Description Charge magic wand with lightning to zap foe.

LightninRod is a tech used in Chrono Cross. After acquiring 35 boss stars, Guile learns to use his Rods as conductors of lightning bolts. When cast, lightning pulses through his weapon and shocks a nearby foe.


Guile revolves and tosses his rod to the air. Black clouds form above the spinning rod, which send bolts of purple lightning to the wand. When the rod is fully charged, it releases the electric current towards the enemy below.

Name Origin[]

LightninRod is a pun of a Lightning Rod, which is a metal object that catches thunderbolts, and the fact that Guile wields Rods and elemental magic as weapons.
