Tera Mutant (Lower Body)
|Tera Mutant (Lower Body)|
|SNES / PS Name||Terra Mutant|
Tera Mutant (Lower Body) (also known as Terra Mutant (Lower Body) in the SNES/PS version) is a boss that appears in Chrono Trigger, in the Black Omen. It is one of two incarnations of the same beast. The first is Giga Mutant.
Terra is a prefix usually pertaining to Earth and ground. However, it's secondary meaning is used for increments of electronic data, Terra being the highest gauge of measurement. Appropriately, this enemy is fought after the Giga Mutant is destroyed. Giga is the electronic increment below Terra and its use here not only implies prestige but it also infers that this creature is bio-mechanical (similar to the Mammon Machine and other life forms from Zeal).
