Crono is a playable newcomer unlockable character in Super Smash Flash, coming from the RPG game, CHRONO TRIGGER, whose sprites' appearance also originates from that game. Due to being a silent protagonist in his own game, he uses Roy's voice samples from Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Crono is ranked 9th on the tier list. Crono is fast and has plenty of disjointed moves, allowing him to quickly overwhelm opponents in a manner similar to InuYasha. Like most swordsmen, he can cancel his horizontal momentum by attacking, increasing his survivability. He also has great instant-KO attacks: his up attack covers an arc above his head, his down air comes out very fast, and his down attack covers great range.

However, like most swordsmen, Crono lacks a projectile and generally has a difficult time dealing with them. He also lacks the damage-racking abilities of Lloyd, as his moves have a shorter active duration. However, Crono is still a strong character, which is the reason for his high placement on the tier list.

Side attack Looks similar to his standard attack, except Crono delivers just one slow, but potent single slash with his katana as he skids forward. Crono is also able to strike opponents that are found behind him. 5%
Up attack Crono swings his katana in an arc over his head as he skids forward. 6% SSF Crono up attack
Down attack Crono dives forwards on the ground with his katana outstretched. It is similar to Luigi's Green Missile (another down attack), even recycling the same the sound effect. 6% SSF Crono down attack
Down aerial Crono thrusts his katana beneath him that propels himself forward. It is similar to Link's down aerial. 6% SSF Crono down aerial


  • Though the intended method to face Crono and unlock him is to clear 3-Minute Melee, exploitation of the skip bug has found an easier and faster way to get challenged by him, as well as his other fellow SQUARE ENIX character, Cloud.
