Chrono Trigger Frog Best Equipment & Techs

This Chrono Trigger Frog Guide will teach you all about Frog’s best equipment and his available techs in Chrono Trigger.

If you’re playing Chrono Trigger, there’s a good chance you’re going to want to use Frog in your party. If you do, you’re absolutely going to want to maximize Frog’s potential by collecting all of his best weapons and armor throughout the game. This Chrono Trigger Frog Best Equipment Guide will help you do just that.

Chrono Trigger Character Guides:

Overview – Chrono Trigger Frog

chrono trigger frog

Frog is pretty similar to Robo in terms of what he brings to the table, but he’s not quite as good. Like Robo, he can provide full-party healing, magic damage and decent physical attack. His healing is slightly weaker and slightly more expensive, his magic is slightly weaker and can only hit one element (water), and his physical attack is not quite as good.

Still, where Frog trails Robo in terms of ability, he more than makes up for by being an awesome looking and very cool frog knight. So there’s that.

Best Equipment – Chrono Trigger Frog

Frog’s best equipment is very standard, so it’s not difficult to find at all. Acquiring his best weapon requires going through Frog’s endgame side quest, but that particular side quest is fairly easy and straightforward, so it’s pretty quick to get your hands on it.

Like with most other characters, when it comes to the best equipment, you’re looking for 4 things:

  • The best weapon
  • Innate status immunity
  • Auto-Haste
  • Damage bonus

Knowing that, the best equipment you’re going to find for Frog will be this:

  • Best Weapon: Masamune
  • Best Helmet: Haste Helm
  • Best Armor: Nova Armor
  • Best Accessory: Prism Spectacles

Frog does gain access to a unique endgame accessory (Champion’s Badge), which you acquire in the Lost Sanctum. The Champion’s Badge is an upgrade of the Hero’s Badge. Like the Hero’s Badge, it increases Frog’s critical hit change while wielding the Masamune, but unlike the Hero’s Badge, it also reduces Frog’s MP costs while the Masamune is equipped.

Both of these accessories are inferior to Prism Spectacles. The main reason is that Prism Spectacles increase Frog’s damage for everything he does. When you consider that alongside the fact that Frog has Aerial Strike, which is basically a guaranteed critical hit for 4 MP, Prism Spectacles are the clear winner.

Best Equipment Locations – Chrono Trigger Frog

Masamune – Chrono Trigger Frog Best Weapon

The normal Masamune is obtained through the normal course of the story. An upgraded version is available in the endgame by completing Frog’s side quest, which involves meeting Cyrus in the ruins near Choras. You have to hire the carpenter in Choras in 600 A.D. to fix up the Northern Ruins. It’s a simple side quest that only requires bouncing between 600 A.D. and 1000 A.D. a couple of times.

Haste Helm – Chrono Trigger Frog Best Helmet

Two Haste Helms can be acquired in the Black Omen. One from a chest and the other from Charming the Lavos Spawn towards the end.

In the DS version and all the later versions of the game, another can be acquired by Charming the Alabaster Shade in the Antiquity Vortex.

Nova Armor – Chrono Trigger Frog Best Armor

There are lots of places to find Nova Armors. The first time you encounter one is from the black chest in the Hero’s Tomb in the Middle Ages. There’s another one in a chest in the Black Omen. You can Charm Fangbeasts in the second room of the Black Omen for an infinite supply.

Prism Spectacles – Chrono Trigger Frog Best Accessory

There are normally two places to find Prism Specs. The first is obtained at the same time you get the Rainbow after completing both the Rainbow Shell and Sun Stone quests.

The second is Charmed from the Steel Shade in the 1000 AD Vortex.

However, in the DS version of the game, you can get an infinite amount because it’s a random prize in the 6th Tier battles in the Arena of Ages.
