Cyclone (かいてんぎり kaiten giri?) is Crono's 1st-level Tech in Chrono Trigger.

Description[edit | edit source]

Crono leaps into a group of enemies, spinning his sword around very quickly, striking them multiple times. It strikes one main enemy (signified by the solid cursor) and nearby enemies in a circle (signified by blinking cursors).

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The movement Crono makes is very similar to that of a cyclone, so it's fitting.

Technique Combinations[edit | edit source]

Cyclone is a versatile skill, able to be combined at some point in the game with all of the characters (except Magus). It is used as part of four double techniques and four triple techniques.
