Nu (ヌゥ Nuu) are creatures found throughout Chrono Trigger.

OverviewEdit

Nu can be found in the Cursed Woods of Middle Ages, the Hunting Grounds of Prehistory, and at Enhasa in Antiquity. At the Cursed Woods and Hunting Grounds they only appear when it rains. Nu work as merchants or assistants during 12,000 B.C. A Nu can also be found in the Present at the Forest Ruins and in the Future as Belthasar's assistant. Nu can be found scattered throughout all eras except The End Of Time unless Spekkio as a Pink Nu is counted. Other Nu include: Nu Guardian, Nu Master, and Pink Nu.

StrategyEdit

Nu have two Head-Butt attacks, one which reduces a character's HP to one, and another which does exactly one point of damage.

As soon as you have access to the Hunting Grounds , pair up Crono , Marle and Lucca . Hit the Hunting Grounds and kill a few monsters until the rain begins. Run over to the Nu's spot (southeast corner of map, second level; or northeast corner, first level) and engage the Nu. Use Crono & Lucca 's Fire Sword attack (this will do around 500dmg), and have Marle wait until the Nu attacks. Use Marle 's Cure on whoever he just attacked, then repeat the process with Fire Sword. After the Nu has been struck twice by Fire Sword , you can resort to normal attacks (should only take one or two).

Alternatively, if Crono , Frog and Robo have learned Triple Raid , it will do approximately 1,000 damage to the Nu. Start with this then follow with two regular attacks. Use Robo 's Cure Beam after the match to heal whoever needs it.

Also, by the time Crono , Frog and Marle have learned Arc Impulse , this will generally kill the Nu in one hit, as it does around 1,250 damage.

Nu found in Prehistory can be a good source of Tech Points early on in the game. They're also a good source of the ingredients needed to purchase equipment at the Ioka Village Hut . However, the Nu only appears when it rains. You must find Nu before the rain stops. If you do not, then Nu will leave until the next rain. The first time you defeat the Prehistory Nu, he rewards the party with a Third Eye.

In the secret room of Enhasa, there are six Nu. Each will attack random party members with one of the two Head-Butt attacks.

Non-Combat NuEdit

There are Nu working as merchants in Antiquity, Arena of the Ages, and Black Omen. There is a Nu in the Laruba Village that can change any character's name. A Nu can be found inside the Northern Palace. The two Nu that appear in the Black Omen do different things to assist you. The one on the left lets the character buy and sell things, while the Nu on the right offers to let the player escape the Black Omen.

OriginsEdit

At least one Nu was built by Belthasar. In the Future, this robotic Nu helps the Guru build Epoch. This Nu is also found in the Present at the Forest Ruins, expecting Belthasar to return soon after waiting for 13,000 years. Before Belthasar's death, he programs the Nu with his memories and the Nu gives the player the time-traveling ship, advises Marle to find a Doppel Doll to help revive Crono, and sends three special Poyozo Dolls to Death Peak to help them scale it. A second Nu specifically mentions him. It is unclear whether or not all Nu were built by him. If they were, their presence in eras outside of Antiquity could be explained by the same rifts that transported Schala, Janus, and the three Gurus.

Chrono CrossEdit

Belthasar's Nu assistant seems to have carried over, as a BeachBum (thought to represent a Nu) resides in the library of Viper Manor where the Neo Epoch is kept. He can change the names of members of Serge's party. It is apparent that a Nu was at one time planned to be a playable character; its dialogue icon appears in the Chrono Cross Demo disc's data and its design is distinctly Nu (not BeachBum).

Dimensional Adventure Numa MonjarEdit

Alongside a Poyozo named Mamo, a Nu tries to recruit members for their group "Nuumamonjaa". Finding no one willing to join them, they wander the fair and interrupt the robot Johnny's show. Attempting to win a golden shovel at the Fast-Drinking Contest in Leene Square, Mamo volunteer's the Nu; it is quite clear that the Poyozo pushes the Nu around. During the game, the Nu tips the table and drinks every glass in one gulp, quickly becoming full. The Poyozo proceeds to plug a SNES controller into the Nu to take control and win the game. This scene seems to support the notion that all Nu are robotic.

Chrono Trigger : Crimson Echoes Edit

Nu were used again from CT:CE staff in a quest for exploring where elements (Chrono Cross Elements) Edit
were created. Edit
The party can move the Nu by pressing A B X Y L R buttons in order to unlock areas that they cannot reach. Edit
In this quest is also possible to see a child version of Luccia and an early prototipe model of Grobyc Edit

TriviaEdit

  • In the Hunting Range in Prehistory, it is possible to attack the Nu as the rain is going away to get his drop items without having to battle.
  • In the Hunting Range in Prehistory, it is possible to use Marle's Charm to steal an item from the Nu. It is the MOP, one of the weakest swords in the game.
