Cronos is a kind young man, dedicated to bringing peace and prosperity to his people. Though he is rather naïve and often finds himself manipulated by his father appearing at times as an antagonist or villain, but only doing so out of love and protection of his father. Because of his upbringing, he always acts professional and maintains well-bred social behaviors. He has respect for the abilities of his opponents, albiet not always agreeing with their methods, and maintains a sense of honor and a code of ethics when battling them. He values friendship greatly, holding both individuals and their loyalty to him, close to his heart.

King Orion



Ganesha assisted to the destruction of his village and gave the blame to, his prince, Cronos, already his rival since Cronos is considered as the best fighters of the kingdom and the ultimate opponent for any fighters who wants to really succeed. It's not clear why Ganesha accused Cronos of the attack on his village and why he became subsequently his bodyguard but Ganesha has a plan and want him to pay for his fault. In the end, it's Cronos who defeated Ganesha after the latter revealed his true self.

Cronos is a strong rushdown character, though has the issue of a weak beast transform. As a penguin, he loses reach, speed and strength though does have the small advantage of being able to dodge some moves because of his stature. His more powerful phoenix form can be used to devastating effect, though this form can only last for less then fifteen seconds before the transformation breaks. In human form Cronos has less stamina/defense and attack damage than normal that is somewhat offset by his quick speed and tricky mixups.

  • Even though it is determined that Shina and Cronos have connected pasts, the games never reveal where exactly they both come from.
  • Cronos cannot face himself in arcade mode in Primal Fury/Extreme, so he'll face Uranus as the final opponent instead.
  • In April 2001, the Bloody Roar Official Japanese site launch a poll where fans were asked what Beast form they like to see. Among the top ten result, number 4 was a Penguin. The poll can be assimilated to the origin of Cronos.
