The Mossback (also known as Shitake in the SNES/PS version) is an enemy in Chrono Trigger. It appears in the Reptite Lair during Prehistory. Mossbacks appear as quadrupedal creatures with mushrooms on their backs.

Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]

Often accompanied by Winged Apes, Mossbacks remain relatively inert during battle. If a Winged Ape is present, it will pick up the Mossback and toss it at a party member.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The mushroom structure atop the backs of these creatures are green, and moss is typically the same color. Additionally, the SNES name, Shitake stems from a mushroom called Shiitake.
