Chrono Vs. Lavos
To fight against Lavos with just Crono, start a NEW GAME +, then when you first try the telepod, go on the wrong side, and press the A button (making sure you have the best equipment on). This will take you directly to Lavos.
HINT: The fight is much easier if you have a gold stud equipped.
First, make sure you have the best (or VERY good) equipment with you, such as elixers, mega elixers, and some other things to heal you, or fill up your magic. Now, the easiest way to kill him is to use the epoch and go to 1999 A.D.
Now you will run into Lavos and you won't have to fight the shell. When you start to fight Lavos, attack him with the Luminaire, or another good spell that hurts. First attack and get rid of the arms. As soon as thats done, attack the body until its gone.
Now, this part, is VERY hard to most players. No matter what
you do, you will go to fight the Lavos Core. Attack the middle
guy, and kill him. This part it pretty hard, but you should accomplish
it. Now, attack the Left guy that is floating. Keep doing it until
the 2 guys revive the middle guy. They will do this every time
he dies, or until you beat the game. Now, once again, kill the
middle, and continue to attack the left bit. Keep attacking, and
killing until the left bit dies. As soon as it dies, all three
of the guys die!
2x Theme Speed
This trick will speed up the 2nd Chrono's Theme (When you ram through Lavos with the Epoch) by 2x. This won't affect gameplay, but it is a neat trick to use.
Not that the music will cut out before the scene ends, but
don't worry. Everything will return to normal when Epoch crashes.
Easy Silver Points
If you're going to then fair you're going to need some silver points. They're mostly just for fun right now, but later in the game you'll need them to get the Crono clone. You can sit there and play the bell-ringing game for all eternity and not have enough, since you only get one silver point-per-win that way. Instead, focus on the races. Pay attention to the old man standing behind the fence to the right of the starting point. He will tip you off to the winner the first three times. After that, it's best to just predict the same winner over and over, and you can follow and distract the other racers by trying to talk to them repeatedly. Have fun!
One tab lies hidden behind Toma's grave in 1000 A.D., after you pour the pop on his tombstone.
Another tab lies hidden against the lower wall to the right of the door, in the room which is above the spot where the robot player fights his old friend Atropos inside the robot factory in 2300 A.D.
Find Magus' Best Equipment
To find Magus' best equipment, simply go to ozzie's fort. When you enter a room where he tempts you to take a treasure, ignore him and leave the room from the upper exit. Right when you're about to exit, he gives up and you're free to steal the treasure. Below the upper exit is a hole in the wall that you can't see. Walk all the way down and take a weapon, helm, and armor for magus. There should also be a magic tab in the same area.
Free Armor and Helms
At Different times in the game if you go back to Lucca's house in 1000 a.d. Taban(her father) will have made items her to wear, and usually they will be stronger that what she has equiped and always will have other positive affects. Here is a list of the items Taban makes:
