LoRes is a 4th-level Yellow Element in Chrono Cross. When the player casts this element, an iridescent sphere encompasses the target.


LoRes is a portmanteau of "low" and "resolution". Obviously a pun on sensory graphics and the negative effects they have on viewers when exposed to in excess. Another meaning for LoRes is the portmanteau of "low" and "resistance". This is much more likely to be the accurate explanation since the game refers the Defense and MagicDefense attributes as resistances throughout the game.
