Orcha uses Mystery Menu in battle.
|Description||Turns your foe into the main course.|
MysteryMenu (ミステリクック , Misuteri kukku, lit. Mystery Cook?) is a Red Tech used in Chrono Cross. After acquiring 15 boss stars, Orcha learns to employ his cooking skills in battle to damage a foe and convert 1/4 of its Hit Points to heal himself. As food is "damaged" during the process of cooking and eating, it restores vitality in exchange.
Description[edit | edit source]
Dashing toward the target, Orcha ducks down and uppercuts the victim very swiftly, causing them to launch into the air. During this brief moment, he procures a stone cauldron. A fire spontaneously combusts beneath the cauldron, the enemy plops inside, and Orcha covers the container with a wooden lid. Steam hisses from the cauldron and a hunk of meat with two bones protruding from either side (most likely Sirloin). Orcha proceeds to eat the meat as the enemy removes itself from the pot and returns to its original stance.
Name Origin[edit | edit source]
As a chief for the Acacia Dragoons, Orcha has experience in the kitchen. The word "menu" is a word associated with the motif of kitchens and cooks, so it works for this reason. Also, the phrase "mystery meat", while used humorously at times, it is a word used to describe food when it is unidentifiable after the cooking process. This tech's name may be a pun of that.
