- 1010 AD
- c. 2300 AD - Belthasar arrives in the Future and begins constructing Chronopolis in the El Nido archipelago. He builds the supercomputer known as FATE to officiate the facility, using parts from the original Mother Brain computer. Studying the flow of time, he discovers the fate of Schala.

- As a result of the experiement, the Time Crash occurs. Sensing the disturbance to the timeline, Lavos seizes the base and hurls Chronopolis and its occupants 14,400 years into the past.
Timeline of Home WorldEdit
- Note: Despite its name, "Home World" is the foreign timeline that split off of the main sequence of events. It is distinguished from "Another World" by two important factors: 1) Chronopolis is never brought from the future, and 2) Serge survives.
- Settlers from Zenan begin colonizing the El Nido archipelago.
- 1010 AD - The dimension suffers numerous changes as a result of the paradox of Serge's survival and the split of the dimensions.
- Chronopolis vanishes from the Sea of Eden, the damage suffered to the space-time continuum now opening up the Dead Sea, where refuse from discarded timelines appear. This stems from the tears in space-time created by Lavos, who is no longer destroyed in this timeline.
- With the lack of terraforming that Chronopolis would have conducted, the Dragon Gods vanish from the terraformed locations of Sky Dragon Isle, Mount Pyre, and Gaea's Navel.
- Without FATE to operate them, the Records of Fate shut down. The people of El Nido are not manipulated by FATE and begin interacting with the Zenan mainland.
- Numerous timeline alterations occur within the preceding millennia, such as preventing the extinction of the hydra in the Hydra Marshes.
- 1017 AD
The Events of Chrono Cross

- 1015 AD
The Events of Chrono Cross
Timeline of the Dragonian DimensionEdit
- Note: The dates in this universe use a different dating system, due to the Reptite civilization dominating as opposed to the human one. The Guardian dating system will be used to maintain commonality.
- Lavos bypasses the planet. As a result, the Reptites survive and the ice age never begins.
- Despite the death of their leader, Azala, the Reptites wipe out the human race.
Between 65M BC and 2400 ADEdit
- Due to continued exposure to Dreamstone, the Reptites evolve into the Dragonians
- Dragonian advancement is based upon connection to the elements of nature, rather than the use of technology
- The city of Dinopolis is constructed
- The Dragonians create the Dragon God to manage and control their city
- As a result of the Time Crash, Dinopolis is pulled through space-time into the Keystone Dimension to the year 12000 BC. This is to counter-balance the appearance of the foreign mass of Chronopolis.
Timeline of the Dimension VortexEdit
- 796 AD - Sprigg is born
