Fans of the Chrono Trigger series know that Crono is a member of the “silent protagonist” archetype. That basically mean that he’s not mute, but he rarely speaks. This can be both a blessing and a curse for player’s relationship to the character. On one hand, the player can identify with the character more because he doesn’t necessarily say anything that will contradict the player. On the other hand, the character often has little to development which can lead to the player feeling somewhat detached. Probably the best thing they could have done to Crono was have him get killed, and making the rest of the characters go through so much just to get him back.

Sometimes the "Silent hero" bit's the best way to go. I think the best example of this is "The Legend of Zelda" cartoon:

"Well excuuuuuse me, Princess!"

Of course Chrono dose talk alot in the game... however you don't see that dialog. So when someone replaies to what Chrono said, it's basicly open to the players interpritation as to how he phrased what he said. This kinda makes the player feel more like they are in the role of Chrono because he's essentialy saying something like the player would... in their minds.

I still think Chrono's mute.. .maybe the characters he 'talk' to just NEED to get it off their chest.

silent hero... like felix or issac,from the golden sun series?iassac talks in the second game,becuase he's not the hero,and felix only says,"what?"in the second game,and talks in the first game,becuase he's the villain,even though you never fight him

@Sonow That puts a whole new light on how Crono and Marle's relationship got started. I mean, there was just something she NEEDED to get of her 'chest'.

Yes, I know I just shot the maturity up quite a bit, but you left it wide open. I couldn't resist.
