Battle System

To start, the battle system used in Chrono Cross is pretty unique and pretty difficult to get used to. There are 4 different things you can do during the battle when it’s your character(s) turn in battle: you can attack, use an element, defend, or try to run away. Each character also has a Stamina Meter in their on-screen status box during the battle.
