Appearance[edit | edit source]
Similar to his Chrono Trigger appearance, Flea sports a white skirt with pink trim, and a short "bob" haircut also in the color of pink. Unlike the traditional Flea, this version has a darker complexion, lacks a cape, and wears his hair in a "bob" haircut style instead of a braid.
Gender[edit | edit source]
Confirmed to be male in Chrono Trigger, when Frog denounces the magician's physical appearance as being an illusion, it is also confirmed when he is battle at the Bend of Time in Chrono Cross. Each enemy, character, and boss in the game has a gender icon. Flea's gender icon is the one used for males.
Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]
The battle against Flea is restricted to New Game Plus game saves.
Flea should be taken out first when fighting the three bosses. His attacks aren't too threatening, but he almost always uses TheStare on his first turn, which causes high magic damage and the confuse status to all three party members. It would be wise to bring one or multiple Red Brooch accessories, as it will nullify confusion on whoever equips it. If the player has less than three, then the character who wears it should be able to heal status ailments via Elements. With repeated use of Blue Elements or strong physical attacks, Flea will quickly fall, and the rest of the battle becomes straightforward. Note that Flea absorbs all Red element damage, so refrain from using multi-target Red Elements until he's defeated.
Element Grid[edit | edit source]
Flea is a Red Innate that absorbs Red Techs and Elements. Best not to cast them on Flea, as the possible damage will be converted in Hit Points that heal him. Interestingly, Flea, in Chrono Trigger casts several Fire-elemental spells, so it is no surprise that this idea transferred to the game's sequel.
