"Why can't we all just be happy for once? If only we could all hold hands and live together in peace and harmony? Why can't people understand this...?"
— Macha

Macha (ママチャ Mamacha?) is the strong-willed mother of Korcha and sets an example for her son by living bravely. She appears early on in Chrono Cross.


Plump and dark-skinned, Macha is always seen smiling. Wearing a purple dress with a red and yellow hemmed slit, her hair is also purple. To match her pink headband, she wears a pink halter-top. On her headband is an exotic flower with red and orange petals. For jewelry, bronze-colored earrings dangle from her ears, several thin necklaces of the same metal wrap around her throat, a patterned bracelet is worn above her elbow, and a matching anklet sits above her shoeless feet. As a mother, Macha tends to many household chores. So it is no wonder she wields cooking utensils and carries around a basket of laundry. Even her techs reflect her duties as housewife.


Growing up in Guldove, Macha is cultured in its way of life. Later in her life, she marries a man, and together, they birth Korcha. Her husband somehow perishes from unknown causes and is never mentioned by her or her children. Though she raises Korcha with a mother's love, Korcha becomes free-spirited and wild. Regardless, Macha has the final say in any matters regarding her son. After his birth, she also adopted Mel; her two children live in the residential tower with her. When Korcha refuses to lend Serge his boat after Serge declines to look for Hydra Humour to cure Kid's poison, Macha intervenes and lends them the boat of her own accord. Arriving in Termina, she reprimands the dock overseer-er for not allowing them to dock their vessel there. She then joins the party and accompanies Serge on the rest of his adventure.

Macha appears to be the feminized form of the word macho. Alternatively, "CHA" seems to be a phonentic addition to word endings in the Guldove dialect. Along with, ma, a colloquialism for mother, her name may simply indicate that she is a mother from Guldove. Macha and Kocha are also types of tea (macha is green tea, kocha is [British] black tea), tying Macha and Korcha's names together.
