Spiced Jerky (also known as Jerky in the SNES/PS version) is an item in Chrono Trigger. The jerky comes in two forms; the first is a ration of the Master of Kitchens in the Middle Ages for the knights defending Zenan Bridge, and the second is a prized cooking item sold by the owner of the Snail Stop. Crono and the party deliver the former to the knights, assisting the effort to defend against the Mystics, while the latter is used in the Sun Stone sidequest. It is given to the needy wife of the Porre Elder for free, causing the Porre Mayor of later years to be imbued with charitable virtues. This allows the acquisition of the Sun Stone, stolen from the Sun Keep. It's bought from the tavern in Porre in the Present for 9900 G and sold to the Mayor's Wife in the Middle Ages for 10000 G or given to her for free. If given to her for free, she promises to teach her children to be charitable.

In the present, the chancellor of Guardia advises Marle to give the king a spiced jerky as a reconciliation gift. However, the king can't eat it and believes she did this on purpose to spite him, just as the chancellor planned.

Trivia[]

  • Jerky is supposedly King Guardia XXXIII's favorite food. However, when the player attempts to give one to him, he rejects it because of its high cholesterol content. In the Japanese version and NDS remake, he rejected it due to the overuse of spices.
