The Speed Capsule (also known as Speed Tab in the SNES/PS version) is a consumable item in Chrono Trigger. It increases the basic Speed stat of any character it is used on by 1.

Speed Capsules can be found as blue shines on the ground, from chests, by using Charm, or as rewards from NPCs. There are a total of 38 Speed Capsules, the lowest of any Capsule type. 11 are won from Spekkio, 10 are found on the map or from chests, one is found from battling the Nus in Zeal, and 16 are found via Charm. No Speed Capsules can be found in Prehistory.

As the total number of Speed Capsules needed to bring every character's speed to 16 (**) is 36, and a great many are found via either Spekkio's Nu form or via the Dimensional Corridor, most will likely opt to collect them over the course of multiple New Game+ runs instead of just one.
