Lightning II (also known as Lightning 2 in the SNES/PS version) is the fifth Tech learned by Crono in Chrono Trigger. It is also one of the three Techs that Magus starts with when he joins the party. Deals Light elemental damage to all enemies, and it consumes 8 MP. It is also an enemy skill.

Animation[]

When cast, Crono (or Magus) leaps into the middle of the screen and small stars gather toward him. When enough have gathered, a spinning windwill of electricity and light emit from his body, striking all enemies for moderate Light damage.

Strategy[]

When fighting Magus in Fiendlord's Keep, he casts this spell, leaving him vulnerable to Light-element Techs, such as Lightning II, using this Tech on him will result in extra damage. Additionally, when fighting dinosaur enemies in Prehistory, such as Aecytosaur or Nizbel, Lightning II causes them to lower their Defense, leaving them vulnerable to physical blows. These creatures are tough to defeat otherwise.

Enemy Tech[]

Lightning II can also be used by certain magical enemies (particularly bosses). Additionally, Magus the Boss uses Lightning II. If a Light tech is used on Nizbel, he can release an Electric Discharge which is functionally the same as Lightning II.
