Cleave (全力斬り ぜんりょくぎり zenryoku giri?) (also known as Spincut in the SNES/PS version) is Crono's 4th-level Tech in Chrono Trigger.

Description[edit | edit source]

Crono leaps high into the air, leaving a shadowy after-image. He then brings his sword hard down upon the enemy.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The verb "To cleave" essentially means to split/cut something with a sharp instrument, which is what Crono does here with his katana.

The Japanese name of this skill, 全力斬り zenryoku giri, basically means "to slice/cut with all one's might".

Enemy Tech[edit | edit source]

As with Cleave, Slash shares many techs with Crono, as he too is wielder of katanas. Tech his shares with Crono include Wind Slash.
