Description Attempt to steal your opponent's treasure

Pilfer is a tech used in Chrono Cross. Kid learns to thieve items from opponents in battle after receiving 3 boss stars. When cast, a shower of red sparks envelops her and she charges at the desired enemy.


If the tech is successful, Kid bounces a cloth coin purse in her hand, smiling, and a message pops up revealing what loot was appropriated. If she fails, she scurries back to her battle position, kicks at the ground, and a message tells that the attempt at thievery failed. Most enemies carry two steal-able items. One that is commonly acquired and one that is rarely acquired. The rarer steal is generally a better item.

Name Origin[]
