#5: Frog

Series: Chrono
Debut: Chrono Trigger
Premise: 600 A.D.

Complex Says: Chrono Trigger, arguably the best RPG ever made, takes place in several time periods as heroes from different time periods join together to fight Lavos in the year 1999 A.D. to prevent the end of the world.

One of the tragic characters in this game, Frog, hails from the year 600 A.D. and is cursed to appear as a frog. In his original form, Frog, formally known as Glenn, witnessed his friend Cyrus murdered at the hands of Magus, and was then cursed to look like a Frog. In one ending of the game, Frog’s original self is restored (depending on if you avenge Cyrus) and in other endings he remains the same (like in one ending after you spare Magus.)

A game about Frog would be greatly appreciated. Like Robo, we hold a deep empathy for Frog especially since his form was changed since witnessing the death of his ally. A spinoff game where Frog embarks on an adventure alongside Magus again would be appreciated, and the game could possibly give some insight as to if Frog is still a frog in the official Chrono Trigger ending.
