Queen Zeal is a boss in Chrono Trigger that appears in the
Battling Queen Zeal for the first time can be incredibly easy.
Make sure to bring Marle,
Crono, and Ayla for this battle. Unleash the
party's most furious Double Techs and Triple
Techs upon her. Since she has no immunities or weaknesses, it
is advisable to use Ice
Sword with Marle and Crono, keeping Ayla free for physical attacks. Looting Zeal can be helpful, since she keeps
Megalixirs on her
person, useful for the second battle against her, as well as later,
in the battle with Lavos.
Any time Zeal attacks the party, use Marle's Cure II or Ayla's Kiss to heal all party members. Zeal
cannot knock-out a party member in this battle, but when the battle
ends, the party has not chance to heal up or restore Magic Points before
battling her for the second time. Once the battle ends, the party
is forced to battle the Mammon Machine, then her second form. Again,
no breaks or intermissions are present for these three battles.
Transported to the exterior of the Black Omen, the party faces
Queen Zeal. This time, she splits into three parts - a head and two
hands. Never, at any time, attack the hands. When attacked, they
provoke a lethal counter that reduces the party's Hit Points or Magic Points
to one. Having Marle and Ayla along for this battle is ideal,
because they can use Twin Charm to loot the valuable Prism
Dresses and Prism Helms from her hands. The head holds
Megalixirs, which are useful, but not crucial. Even charming the
hands, however, provokes the deadly counter tech. After this
happens, have Crono use Megalixirs on Ayla (and Marle, if the party
decides to use Twin Charm instead of the regular Charm). Equip Ayla
with the Alluring
Top before beginning the battle with Zeal's first form to
increase the odds of receiving these valuable steals from her. Once
all desired Items are looted,
focus on her head. Attacking the head does not provoke counter
attacks. Once the Hit Points of the head are reduced to zero, the
battle automatically ends.
If Magus is present for
the first battle against Queen Zeal, his theme song, "Magus
Confronted", plays instead of the "Boss Battle 2"
track standard for this battle.
