Description Temporarily halves Elemental damage

Diminish (マナフィーブル Mana Feeble?) is a 6th-level Black Element in Chrono Cross. While any party member can equip and use this element, DeadHead, the boss constructed of several Dead Beat, uses this element as an opener when fought aboard the S.S. Invincible.

It is the counterpart to Magnify, a white elemental spell which increases elemental damage by 1.5.

Description[edit | edit source]

Cloaking the surrounding area in black, several violet rings appear on the floor, speckled with dark shadows that scurry around and devour the party, temporarily weakening the damage capabilities of all white elements. This element does not weaken White Techs such as Dash&Slash, however.

Info[edit | edit source]

Name Origin[edit | edit source]

In English, Diminish means to wan, wither, or weaken in some way. Since the animations show several dark motifs, it only makes sense that it "diminishes" the presence of light, or in this case, white elements.
