Time Crash is an event in Chrono Cross. It happened in 2400 AD as Chronopolis attempted the Counter-Time Experiment, where the Frozen Flame would allow the facility to control time itself. Instead, usage of Lavos' piece exposed Chronopolis to the monster after he had been awakened by the Mammon Machine in Antiquity. Lavos was able to pull Chronopolis and the Sea of Eden to 12000 BC. The Entity was able to counteract by pulling Dinopolis from the timeline where the Reptites became the dominant species. All the events lead to the formation of the El Nido archipelago.
