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 10th on the tier list, a single spot lower than his placement on the previous 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, again similarly to 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.

Down aerial SSF Crono down aerial.png Thrusts his sword beneath him. It is similar to Link's 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.
