"Oh, great Magus, why didn't you just exterminate the human race 400 years ago?"
— Medina Villager

Medina Village is a location in Chrono Trigger that appears in the Present. It is a small village, populated almost entirely by Mystics. A statue in the center depicts Magus, the Fiendlord, and after Magus' defeat, a statue of Ozzie is present. Once Ozzie is defeated at his Fort, no statue sits in the center and the anti-human animosity common in Medina has disappeared.


Chrono Trigger[]

Crono and his team visit Medina after their first visit to the End of Time, since the Gate between Guardia Forest and Bangor Dome is inaccessible. Ozzie VIII is Elder at this time.

Due to the Human/Mystic conflict that occurred in Middle Ages, most residents are hostile to human visitors (though the owners of the cupboard which houses the Gate state that they like to leave what has happened in the past). Because of this prejudice, shopkeepers and innkeepers charge an extremely large amount of money for their goods and services if the customers are human, often making them unaffordable. Sometimes, Medina inhabitants will try to attack Crono and his team based solely on this prejudice. These conflicts disappear and the prices deflate after Ozzie is defeated again. Once the Black Omen rises in the sky late game, a mystic gazes happily at its beauty in the sky. Once the Omen is defeated, the citizen no longer says anything.

The inhabitants also speak of a monster that lives in a nearby cave that can only be killed by magic, pointing out that humans can no longer use magic. The Guru, Melchior, sets up his residence not far from the town.

If Crono battles Lavos prematurely and loses, the cut-scene references that Medina has been destroyed by Lavos' arrival. Oddly enough, the worshipers in the center of Medina pray for the Day of Lavos to destroy humans. They believe they will be spared during this attack but are not.

Chrono Cross[]

One of the workers in Chronopolis mentions that he is from Medina, confirming that the city exists in 2400 A.D.


  • Medina is the name of a Saudi Arabian city, prominent to the Islamic religion. The real-life Medina was the capital of the prophet Muhammad's early Islamic state in the 7th century. Medina is also Arabic for "city", so the village is technically called "City Village."
