Description It combines Cleave, Ice II and Aerial Strike to form a powerful attack.

Frost Arc (also known as Arc Impulse in the SNES/PS version) is a Triple Tech that is used by Crono, Marle, and Frog in Chrono Trigger. It combines Cleave, Ice II, and Aerial Strike to create a strong powerful tech.

During the attack, Marle readies an ice spell while Crono humorously leaps off of Frog's back into the air. Marle grants Crono's sword her magic as he creates one half of a cross coming down on the enemy. Frog then completes the other half. The enemy target receives heavy Water damage.


Arc Impulse graces the U.S. boxart for the SNES version of Chrono Trigger as the trio uses it on Heckran in a snowy field. Interestingly, Marle appears to be unleashing fire elemental energy from her fingers instead of ice (though this is likely because the art used was early promotional work of Akira Toriyama's during the game's development before the characters and their elements were ultimately decided upon).
