Crono is ranked 9th on the tier list. Crono is fast and has plenty of disjointed moves, allowing him to quickly overwhelm opponents in a manner similar to InuYasha. Like most swordsmen, he can cancel his horizontal momentum by attacking, increasing his survivability. He also has great instant kill attacks: his up attack covers an arc above his head; his down air comes out very fast; and his down attack covers great range.
However, like most swordsmen, Crono lacks a projectile, and generally has a difficult time dealing with them. He also lacks the damage racking abilities of Lloyd, as his moves have a shorter active duration. However, Crono is still a strong character, which is the reason for his high placement on the tier list.
