Chrono Trigger Fwaks
First of all, I don't remember where I got these but every single one of them is FAKE! These were written either just for fun, the author had no life, or just to see how many stupid people would try and unlock these "secrets"
Spekkio can join your party. He can't attack, nor can he use items. His menu is "Mim.", "Tech", "Rage". You can go to his Tech menu and assign him any 8 Single, Dual, and Triple Techs that you know each by putting the cursor on the Tech and pushing A to get a menu. Spekkio can't use any Tech out of combat.
"Mim." stands for Mimic, which works like Gogo's Mimic in FF3. Spekkio will copy the attack of whoever went before him. "Rage" works like Gau's Rage. Whenever you win a fight, Spekkio learns the Rage of all the enemies, and you can use "Rage" to access these. Once Spekkio uses a Rage, he becomes that enemy for the rest of the fight, and you can't control him. Any enemy in the game can be Raged, even the first two parts of Lavos.
Here's how to get Spekkio:
First, get Frog, Robo, and Marle ONLY up to Level **. If any other characters are at **, you won't be able to get Spekkio.
Once you've got Spekkio, go to 12,000 B.C. and enter the Last Village where the Nu is. Save right outside the house, enter, and talk to the Nu 896 times. Then reset the game without leaving. When you load up the game, Spekkio will be equipped with the Green Rock, which enables you to use Light Eternal Triple Tech with Crono and Magus that does 9999 damage to all enemies (although it costs 50 MP for Spekkio, and 30 MP for Crono and Magus, regardless of any Studs you're equipped with). Once you've got the Green Rock, you can't de-equip it, but would you really want to?
Get the Gold Rock and equip it and the Masamune on Frog before going to the Black Omen.
Use Frog, Robo, and Marle (in that order) for the entire Black Omen and defeat all the enemies it by using Grand Dream only, not attacking, using any Tech (including healing), using any item, or trying to run. You can heal between battles, but you can't step on any Save Points.
When you enter Lavos, go to the Ends of Time and put Frog, Magus, and Crono in your party in that order.
Use Dark Matter on Spekkio until you beat him. Use Dark Matter only as you did with Grand Dream. Spekkio will become Dalton.
After you beat Spekkio with Dark Matter, leave the room and then put Marle, Lucca, and Magus (in that order) immediately in your party and go back in without leaving the Ends of Time. Defeat Spekkio using Dark Eternal. Spekkio will become Zeal.
Leave the room and put Frog, Robo and Marle in your party in that order. Then immediately go back in and use Grand Dream once on Spekkio, then die.
After you die, go outside and talk to Gaspar. Then talk to Crono and choose to put him in your party. Swap him with Frog (he should now be first in the party) and go back into Spekkio's room. Talk to Spekkio and he will be a party member.
If you want to fight Spekkio again, just take him out of your party and go into his room. Answer "no" that you need the Master of War, and then say "yes" that you are looking for some practice.
Cyrus is probably the hardest hidden character to find, but he's a very powerful character. He doesn't have any magic, but he has useful standard Tech. He equips any stuff that Frog can equip, except for the Gold Rock.
Here's how to get Cyrus:
Kill Magus at the North Cape, then collect everybody's Poyozos, getting Frog's Poyozo first. That means you can't get Crono's Poyozo through the whole time when you're required to use him.
If you took the Soul Sword instead of the Resurrect Potion, Frog can use it. It has 0 attack, but it works like the Atma Weapon of FF6, with more damage with more HP. You'll keep it if you play New Game +, so you can get the Soul Sword first and then get Cyrus in a New Game + (once you get the Moon Stone in 12,000 B.C. once, it is always the Life Stone when you get it normally).
Go to each Poyozo and play the music in this order: Robo, Lucca, Crono, Marle, Ayla, Frog. There will be a "click" sound when you use Frog's Poyozo.
Talk to the Nu in the Cursed Woods and then run down into an enemy while the Nu is still on the screen. Use anybody's eighth Tech to defeat the Nu, then run if there are any enemies left. Go down into Frog's house and the Nu will be there. Talk to him and he will give you the Invis Ring accessory, which gives you ** Evade.
Play two New Game +s, following the above instructions again to get two more Invis Rings, then start another New Game +.
This time, defeat Dalton in your second visit to Zeal and then leave Zeal Palace. Go back down to the Blackbird and equip Invis Rings on all three party members, then walk past the guards and get on the Blackbird.
You can fly the Blackbird around Zeal like the Epoch. Go to the Sun Palace and enter. It looks identical to the one in 2300. Go up and defeat the Son of Sun with Lucca and Robo. Get the Moon Stone.
Recharge the Moon Stone as usual and get it back from the Mayor of Porre as always.
Defeat Lavos in the Ocean Palace in Zeal and then play a New Game + with that data. Get the Moon Stone as in a normal game (DON'T get it in 12,000 B.C., although you can get the Blackbird) and recharge it. It will be the Life Stone instead of the Moon Stone.
Take the Life Stone to Melchior and he will give you a choice between the Soul Sword and the Resurrect Potion. Take the Potion and go to Cyrus's grave in 600 A.D. Pour the Resurrect Potion on it and Cyrus will appear and join your party.
Also, if you take the Blackbird to the Elemental Palace, you can get the Nereid Bow for Marle (better than the Valkeyre and it randomly casts Water 2), and the Sun Shot for Lucca (better than the Shock Wave, and sometimes better than the Wonder Shot and sometimes worse. It occasionally casts Flare). However, you can also choose not to open the chests when asked and pick them up in the Forest Ruins in 1000, obtaining the Sky Render for Frog (not as good as the the Masamune, but it randomly casts Lightning 2) and the Excalibur for Crono (same strength as the Rainbow, but it has a 95% critical hit rate). You'll have to play New Game + to get both sets of weapons.
Kino is a difficult character to get because you must pass through several dungeons before you can get him. Also, you have to be careful or he'll leave when you get Crono. Once you get Kino, put him in the front of the party and keep him there until you get Crono back. Kino can use a Fist (but he doesn't get the Iron and Bronze Fists), or he can equip Clubs. There are three Clubs: the Wood Club, the Bone Club, and the Gaea Club. All are found in 65 million B.C.
But, first, to get Kino:
After you escape from the Blackbird, but before you go talk to Gaspar, go to 65 million B.C. and go to the Lair Ruins with Ayla, Marle, and Lucca. There will be a blue sparkle. Walk up to it and hit A to get the Kilwala Key.
There's a better weapon for Kino available, the Gaea Club. After you have the Epoch back, fly the Dactyls to the Kilwala Forest by the river. At the end of this level is the Gaea Club.
Go to the Mystic Mts. and run between the Kilwalas dancing around the rock (if you fight them, leave the area and come back) and hit A to put the Kilwala Key in the rock. The Kilwalas capture you.
After you are rescued by Kino, he is captured. Get out of the Kilwala Cave and go back to Ioka to find out about the Dreamstone mine. Go to the mine.
Go through the mine and beat the boss with Spin Strike or Dark Eternal. Get the Dreamstone.
Take the Dreamstone to the trader and he will make you Dream Vests, the Dream Sword for Frog (increases the power of Grand Dream) and the Dream Scythe in exchange for some items. Get at least three Dream Vests and equip them on whichever party members you wish to use (you must use Ayla).
Find your Dactyls and fly them to the lava fields. Land in the fields and go to the upper-right volcano and enter. Go to the top and rescue Kino.
The Epoch is stolen, so go to the Kilwala Cave and go through the new door. After the boss, you get the Epoch back.
You can play as Shadow from FF3. He is not particularly hard to get. He is a useful character that equips most of the weapons Crono does. He has no magic, but very powerful Tech.
There are only three steps to getting Shadow:
Equip Black Mail or Blast Vests on the three characters you wish to use and go to the Geno Dome.
Interceptor (Shadow's dog) can pick a fight with Crono's cat. Put Shadow in the front of your party and go to Crono's house. Go up to the original cat and keep pushing A until Interceptor comes and gets into a fight with Crono's cat. After the fight, search Crono's bed and you will get the Cat Claw for Ayla, which is just as powerful as the Bronze Fist but does more damage with normal hits.
Jump down the Dust Chute 17 times, then ride the conveyor belt again. Go through the Geno Dome level as normal.
In Mother Brain's room, you'll find Shadow. You have to fight him. With the Black Mail and Black Vests, he can't hurt you much. After you beat him, Shadow joins your party.
Also, Interceptor will be in the Geno Dome. You can win another dog by putting Shadow in the front and playing the 80 Silver Point game at the Tent of Horrors. Then get dog food by playing any game with Shadow in the front and you will get dog food and get puppies. When you get enough 7 dogs, use the computer in the Geno Dome to get the Puppysuit for Shadow.
Gaspar, the Guru of Time, is not a particularly hard character to get. If you've done everything correctly, you can choose to have him join your party when he says "If you really want to thank me, make me a member of your team." However, to get him, you can't have Magus. But by playing over in New Game +, Gaspar will join automatically at that point, even if you have Magus.
Gaspar isn't too hard to get if you know what to do:
Before you fight Lavos in Zeal, put Marle in your party at the second position and Lucca in the third.
Gaspar uses the Dream Staff. However, there's a better weapon, the Time Staff. To get the Time Staff, put Gaspar in the front of the party and Magus second and go to 12,000 B.C. Talk to the old guy in the Commons once without talking to anybody else and then go to 600 A.D. Talk to Fiona once and then go to 2300 A.D. Talk to Doan and he will give you the Time Staff, which randomly stops enemies.
Before the Blackbird, when the character select screen appears, put Marle in your party in the first postion, Lucca in the second, and Ayla in the third. Frog should be at the top of the right column.
Get the Clone before you talk to Belthasar. On Death Peak, don't talk to any Poyozos other than the one that turns into a tree.
After you beat the third Lavos Spawn, don't push the shell and go back to the Ends of Time and talk to Gaspar. Go through his dialogue until you reach the last message, then leave the game on for at least an hour.
Go back to Death Peak and finish the level. When you go back, talk to Crono and swap him with Ayla so you have Marle, Lucca, Crono. Then talk to Gaspar and you can choose to have him join.
If you want to talk to Gaspar again, just take him out of your party and go to the Ends of Time. Talk to Gaspar and say "no" that you want to put him in your party.
While you can can get the Dream Scythe in Ioka, there's an even better weapon for Magus, and also his best armor: Janus's Scythe, Cape, and Helm.
To get Janus's equipment:
During your second visit to Zeal (after you have Epoch), go to Enhasa.
Besides selling you the Janus stuff, the Nu is the only person (er... Nu) in the game that will buy accessories from you (you can't sell the Green Dream, Hero Medal, or Flea Vest, however). He also sells four accessories: Gold Studs, Frenzy Bands, Gold Earrings, and Sun Shades.
Talk to Doreen; she will be to the right of the exit. Keep going around and talking to her. She will next be in the upper-right by the Poyozo, and then on the left by the store, and then she will start the cycle over.
When Doreen mentions the elemental weapons, open the books in sequence (water, wind, fire). Two doors will open.
Go through the new door, by the Poyozo, and you will enter a room with a Nu. The Nu will sell you some powerful equipment, including Janus's Scythe, Janus's Cape, and Janus's Helm.
The Lich Scythe is Magus's most powerful weapon. To get it, you must be playing in New Game +, which is not really much of a problem. You also have to take Magus, again not really much of a problem. You can only get the Lich Scythe if Cyrus is dead.
To obtain the Lich Scythe:
Put Magus in the front of your party and Frog at the rear and then go through Ozzie's Fort.
The Lich Scythe is the most powerful weapon for Magus, and, like the Reaper Scythe, it randomly kills enemies that it hits. If you want Cyrus in addition to the Lich Scythe, play New Game +. You will keep the Lich Scythe.
Next, do the Northern Ruins, however, do not go to Cyrus's grave.
When you reach the last battle in the Ruins, have Ayla steal from one of the Bases exactly 25 times. You will get the Reaper Scythe, which is a pretty good weapon (but not as good as Janus's Scythe). Then win the fight without using Charm anymore.
Go to Cyrus's grave, still with Magus in front and Frog in back. At Cyrus's grave, Cyrus and Magus will talk, and then Masa, Mune, and Dorreen will appear and fight you.
After you beat the three of them (using Dark Matter), you will get the Masamune and the Reaper Scythe will become the Lich Scythe.
The best helmet in the game, the Paladin Helm, is sort of like the Paladin Shield of FF3.
To get the Paladin Helm:
Go to Ozzie's Fort with Ayla and, when you take on Ozzie, Slash, and Flea, steal from Ozzie.
The Paladin Helmet is the best helmet in the game. It automatically gives you ** Magic Defense, plus it has the highest defense of any helmet. Any character can equip the Paladin Helmet. Unfortunately, you won't keep it in New Game +.
Now defeat the trio and follow Ozzie up the stairs.
Instead of hitting the switch, steal from Ozzie again.
You'll now have two pairs of Ozzie Pants. Equip one, but hold down the R button while equipping it. Then choose equip again and equip the other pair of Ozzie Pants. It will now say you are equipped with "Ozzie Pants 2". Go to the Geno Dome.
Go through the Geno Dome conveyor belt, using the character with the Ozzie Pants equipped. The Ozzie Pants will confuse you, so only do this if you're powerful enough or have a lot of Heals.
After you win 255 battles, the Ozzie Pants will be uncursed and become the Paladin Helmet.
