|Description||Combined DanceOnAir and LimeLight double tech|
Flamenco (フラメンコ , Furamenco?) is a Double Tech in Chrono Cross. It requires the combined powers of DanceOnAir (Miki) and LimeLight (Nikki) to be performed. This Double Tech will temporarily increase the stats of all allies, and decrease magical damage inflicted by foes by 25%.
Description[edit | edit source]
The screen will be blacked out momentarily before being illuminated again, as two spotlights shine down on Miki and Nikki. Miki is seen to be clapping her hands, while Nikki beats his guitar lightly in a simultaneous rhythm. The camera then switches its focus to Miki, who swings her right arm over her chest with a start. The camera then widens its focus to include Nikki, who begins strumming a tune on his guitar, with flashes of electricity appearing as he tugs on the strings. Miki then begins to tap-dance furiously, before striking a pose with her right arm outstretched to her side. Bright flashes of red light then shows up on each ally's body before disappearing in a myriad of red sparkles.
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
The name of this tech originates from the genre of music, song and dance from the Spanish region of Andalusia, noted for its energetic, staccato style. In this tech, Miki is portrayed to be clapping her hands as Nikki plays his guitar, both of which are moves essential to the Flamenco music genre. The clapping of hands and the playing of the guitar are known as toque and palmas respectively in this genre.
