Antipode Bomb (反作用ボム hansayō bomu?) (also known as Antipode in the SNES/PS version) is a Tech used by Marle and Lucca in Chrono Trigger. It can be used after Marle and Lucca meet Spekkio and obtain magical powers, then fight together in the same battle. This tech is the base form of Antipode Bomb II and Antipode Bomb III, its predecessors.

Description[edit | edit source]

Lucca, surrounded by miniature flames, and Marle, surrounded by miniature snow flakes, face the screen as several orbs of red and blue light dance across the screen.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The word antipode, in English, means opposites. Conversely, Lucca's Element Fire and Marle's Element Ice are opposites, so the name fits. Additionally, Lucca performs several Techs that involve explosive bombs, such as Megaton Bomb and Napalm, so the inclusion of that word in the name may allude to this motif in her Tech library.
