Ozzie Pants (ビネガーパンツ binegā pantsu?, "Vinegar Underpants") is an accessory in Chrono Cross, based on the accessory of the same name from Chrono Trigger. This accessory is acquired by fighting and defeating Ozzie in the Bend of Time, exclusive to New Game Plus.
This accessory/headgear casts Auto-Confused, Auto-Darkness, and Auto-Afraid on the wearer, all of which are negative status effects, much like the Ozzie Pants from Chrono Trigger which also only provided its wearer with negative status effects. It can be disassembled for 1 Denadorite and 10 Fur or sold for 9,310 G.
- They're Ozzie's, so they have his name. Vinegar is Ozzie's name in the Japanese version of the game. Yes, "Pantsu" sounds like pants, but it nearly always refers to underwear. No wonder the side effects are so bad!
The sell price of this accessory (9,310 G) comes from the Goroawase (a form of Japanese wordplay with numbers - see linked article for more details) for the Japanese adjective くさい kusai, which means "stinky" (info sourced from page 242 of Chrono Cross Ultimania).
Ozzie's Pants as they appeared in official artwork for Chrono Trigger. It is unknown if Ozzie's Pants appear the same in Cross, but based on the item description saying they are striped, they probably look similar.
