Chronoa (クロノア, Kuronoa), the Supreme Kai of Time (時の界王神, Toki no Kaiōshin; lit. "Time World King God"), is a deity who watches over the flow of time from the cosmos. She is mentioned in Dragon Ball Online as the Lord of Time (界王時間, Kaiōjikan; lit. "World King Time") and is a major character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
Chronoa is a pretty, young looking female Kaioshin with pinkish-red hair and pink/purple skin. Like most Kaioshin she wears a pair of Potara earrings and robes similar to the worn by the Kaioshin on the Sacred World of the Kais, though it has a more casual design. Her outfit also sports a pair of high heeled boots, which may be to compensate for her short stature, as she is also noticeably shorter than Future Trunks and Goku. Despite her young appearance, she is at least 75 million years old and was alive during the time period when Beerus sealed Elder Kai in the Z-Sword, which would make her one of the oldest known living Kaioshin. In Xenoverse 2, Elder Kai reveals that he is 1000 years older than her, indicating she is the second oldest Supreme Kai living in Universe 7.
Despite her role, Chronoa has a friendly, good natured, if somewhat sassy personality most of the time. Befitting her somewhat child-like appearance, Chronoa can be prone to angry outbursts, like when Tokitoki ruined her introduction to the Future Warrior by perching on her head causing her to angrily yell at the divine bird for sitting on her head and making her look foolish in front of them. She however is quite benevolent as she allowed Future Trunks' alternations to remain as she understood Trunks' intentions were noble and ultimately for the greater good. However this did not stop her from deceiving Xeno Trunks into working for her by claiming it was to make up for his sin of using the Time Machine to alter history, when in reality he had actually committed no crime and Chronoa just really needed an assistant, though it is implied that Chronoa didn't think Trunks would take her words seriously as he did. Chronoa is also shown to think quite highly of herself to the point she believes the meals she cooks are fit for a god, when in reality she is a notoriously horrible cook (it is implied that her poor cooking skills are well known as Whis immediately stopped reaching for a pudding cup when he realized it had been made by her). In fact her cooking is known to taste awful and give people stomach cramps (capable of putting even the likes of Goku out of action). She however is oblivious to this as she takes Whis' criticism of her cooking (which enraged Beerus to the point that it ironically almost result in another alteration to the history of Age 778), she mistook it as a compliment and seemed oblivious to the fact that she almost caused another time distortion do to angering Beerus to the point Whis claims that the God of Destruction was capable of extinguishing at least two suns. Chronoa is also a terrible housekeeper as her they is a lot of junk around her home in the Time Nest and it is implied that she can be somewhat lazy as she apparently dislikes doing things that require a lot of work as she is quick to pawn off the task of searching through all the Time Scrolls to find where the wormhole had sent Broly and Bardock to her assistant Xeno Trunks in Xenoverse and left the time rifts in Conton City open as they were mostly stable and eventually decided to just leave them in Conton City permanently after the 2nd Future Warrior recovers all of Towa's Distorted Time Eggs. She also chose to build Conton City on top of the ruins of Toki Toki City instead of rebuilding it after it was destroyed by the Conton City Dragon she accidentally created as it would be a lot faster. In Xenoverse 2 after an update, due to someone (implied to be Elder Kai) complaining the Expert Mission rifts scattered through out Conton City where an eyesore, Chronoa decides to merge all the weakened rifts into one big rift which she places near the Time Machine Station to allow the Time Patrol to use the completed Expert Missions for training as a compromise, though she tells the Future Warrior that it would be dangerous to combine any of the rifts that have yet to be weakened so any rifts that have not been weakened will remain in their normal location until its Expert Mission is completed and the rift is weakened, causing it to be merged with the large Expert Mission rift. She choses to do this instead of simply closing the rifts which are implied would be too much work for her, thus indicating that unless absolutely necessary, she tends to prefer find solutions or compromises to problems that allow her to avoid less work while at the same time benefiting herself or the Time Patrol, the latter of which she can use to justify said decisions due to it being beneficial to everyone. However despite these quirks, in her role as the Supreme Kai of Time Chronoa takes threats to history like Demigra and the Time Breakers' seriously, to the point she was quick to remind both Elder Kai and Xeno Trunks that Towa is still a threat after the 2nd Future Warrior prevents Towa from killing Shenron in Age 850. She is also very protective of the Time Nest and Time Vault, as she refuses to allow anyone (even Beerus) to fight near it out of fear it could be damaged or destroyed. She is also shown to be more willing to take action during these times to the point she (with the assistance of Elder Kai) takes on the arduous task of searching through all the Scrolls looking for the source of the massive time distortion caused by Towa killing Shenron in Age 850, while sending Xeno Trunks and the 2nd Future Warrior to check on Conton City. She is also extremely protective of Tokitoki and its eggs, which is one of her duties as Supreme Kai of Time, thus she takes her role very seriously during these situations. Outside of these serious situations, Chronoa is more laid back and will take her time with dealing with less serious threats or allow others to take care of it for her while she attends to other matters. Despite her high opinion of her abilities and herself, she does not consider herself to be above everyone as she is friendly the Time Patrollers that work under her and even accepts a Time Patroller's invitation to have tea together. Despite pawning off tasks to others at times, she is still considerate enough to reward people for their efforts such as Xeno Trunks and the Future Warriors, though unfortunately she often chooses to reward them with food she had cooked, to the point Xeno Trunks convinced her that he preferred convenience store lunches to avoid eating it.
Xeno Trunks attributes her friendly nature to living alone in the Time Nest with only Tokitoki to keep her company in the centuries before the foundation of the Time Patrol. Chronoa is also shown to have a keen interest in technology, often asking Xeno Trunks about various inventions supplied by the Future Capsule Corporation, and has various pieces of technology lying around in the yard in front of her house. Xeno Trunks also reveals that she once caused a cleaning robot to blow a fuse when she asked it to many questions and finds it hard to wait for new stuff she ordered to come in, indicating that she her interest in technology can be obsessive at times. She even manages to teach Trunks how to create Time Machines that do not produce alternate timelines, fixing a critical design flaw in his mother's original design, showing that she has a better grasp of time travel technology due to her having a far better understanding of the nature of time then either Xeno Trunks or Future Bulma. Xeno Trunks also states that she will occasionally even suggest ideas to him for new Capsule Corp products. Also despite being the Supreme Kai of Time, Chronoa can be impatient especially when it comes to new technology she ordered, as shown by her exaggerating she's been waiting for 100 years for a new Capsule Corp. product she order to come out and even questions the Future Warrior if they are sure when they tell her that she couldn't have been waiting that long. This is in sharp contrast to her old nemesis Demigra who is known for his extreme patience as he waited 75 million years growing stronger than her. In fact Chronoa herself admits that she is creeped out by Demigra's extreme persistence.
In Xenoverse 2, she convinces Elder Kai to help out with the Time Patrol as she was busy preparing for Tokitoki to lay its Egg while Trunks and the Future Warrior were busy with locating the Time Breakers who remained at large following Demigra's defeat. While the two are capable of working together, she has a habit of referring to Elder Kai as old man, despite his insistence that he is only 1000 years older than her (as Shinjin have much longer lifespans) and that his aged appearance is mainly the result of his fusion with the Old Witch. She is occasionally annoyed by Elder Kai's personality and lecherous behavior, as she is quick to taunt and criticize him. During the altered timeline of the Universal Tournament between Universe 6 and 7, Chronoa stated she hope she never grows old like Elder Kai after he forgets about the written exam despite having been present during the tournament originally, indicating that she is not comfortable with either the prospect or effects of aging herself (which is somewhat ironic considering her position). She even praises a female Time Patroller named Aloe for punching Elder Kai after he had groped them, indicating that she encourages female Time Patrollers to stand up for themselves and not allow Elder Kai to abuse his position within the Time Patrol. However she is not above using his lecherousness to her advantage as she told Xeno Trunks not to say anything about her when he went to ask Elder Kai to assist with the Time Patrol, knowing full well that the old lecher would probably be excited at the prospect of see her after 75 million years (it is implied that Elder Kai agreed mainly because he envisioned that Chronoa had become much more attractive over the years which Chronoa apparently took full advantage). Ironically, Elder Kai himself apparently has little interest in Chronoa due to her child-like appearance. While she has changed very little since he last saw her, Elder Kai does mention that she is a bit ruder than in the past, indicating that she was once more respectful towards him in the past.
While she respects Goku and even has a similarly laid back personality, she can be annoyed and frustrated by him at times such as when he tried to eat Tokitoki's Egg after saving it from Mira.
Chronoa was born over 75,000,000 years ago. Chronoa was initially just an ordinary Kai. 75,000,000 years before Age 850 (a short while before becoming the Supreme Kai of Time) Chronoa fought against Demigra and his allies Putine and Gravy, she managed to defeat the three of them, and imprisoned Demigra in the Crack of Time. She later raised Tokitoki into an adult, and thus was given the position of Supreme Kai of Time.
At some point, she confronted Future Trunks for creating and using a Time Machine to alter the past and prevent his future timeline which resulted in a split in the timeline. As she was in need of an assistant, she deceived Future Trunks by telling him "What you did is a mortal sin and making Time Machines is a crime! Work under me if you want to be forgiven!", causing Future Trunks to become her assistant as a means of atonement for his and his mother's sin of creating and using the Time Machine to alter the past. He was unaware that it wasn't a sin as he and his mother were the first ones to do it, a fact she decided to keep secret from Trunks as she needed an assistant. Though admittedly she didn't realize that Trunks would take her lie of his Time Machine being a mortal sin to heart and take the role of her assistant so seriously, and as a result Trunks turned out to be a hard worker and proved himself to be a great assistant. She also chose not to fix the changes in the timeline that resulted from Future Trunks' traveling through time such as his role in the deaths of Mecha Frieza and King Cold, Goku surviving his Heart Virus, Cell using his alternate self's stolen Time Machine to go to the past when 18 & 17 were still alive, allowing Cell to achieve his Perfect Form and the events of Cell Games, since she understood that Trunks' intentions for doing so were noble, pure, and ultimately for the greater good as history didn't turn out for the worse as it had in his timeline.
Dragon Ball Online
In Dragon Ball Online, the backstory of how Future Trunks became Chronoa's assistant. As interpreted in DB Online, the act of using a Time Machine is ultimately a violation of the laws of the universe. Even if it was for the protection of Earth's peace, the Lord of Time gave Future Trunks a stern warning for his actions. Afterwards, in order to redeem his wrong actions, Trunks took up the job of Time Patrol to correct the distortion of history. After the Lord of Time forewarned Future Trunks of Mira's intentions to spread chaos throughout time and space, Trunks travels to Age 1000 in order to find allies and prevent Mira's plans, thus debuting the story of Dragon Ball Online.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse
Chronoa has Future Trunks and the Time Patrol use Toki Toki City in Age 850 as their base of operations. She first appears after the Future Warrior helps the Z Fighters defeat Dark Nappa and Dark Vegeta. She tells Future Trunks that a duo of evil time travelers are responsible for the Dark Magic and Villainous Mode overtaking various villains throughout time after Trunks wonders who could be behind the sudden changes in the timeline.
She greets the Future Warrior with a cheerful hello and in a playful manner flirtatiously poses as Future Trunks nervously introduces her to the warrior. However her introduction is cut short by her pet bird Tokitoki perching on top of her head. She yells angrily at the bird for making her look foolish and states the bird is really heavy. She apologizes for her outburst and explains to the Warrior that Tokitoki is her pet and best friend, before explaining what she knows about the time traveler's altering history and Future Trunks decides stopping those two is a top priority. After the Warrior's first encounter with the two Time Travelers Chronoa appears and explains that they are Demon King Dabura's little sister Towa and Mira a demonic android warrior she created, from the future Demon Realm and that they have been collecting energy from warriors throughout history. Future Trunks calls them horrible people and the Supreme Kai responds "There are villains in every era I'm afraid". She then has Future Trunks and the Future Warrior head back in time to stop Towa and Mira from further altering history, though while talking to Tokitoki she wonders if someone else is helping them but dismisses the possibility that Demigra was involved. She later appears during the game's Android Saga (Future Trunks' timeline) to warn Future Trunks that his entire existence has become ephemeral and that he is on the verge of being erased from existence, due to Towa and Mira's alteration to the history of Future Trunks' past and due to Trunks' fragile state, asks the Future Warrior to save Future Trunks' past self from Dark 17 & 18 in order to stop the Time Breakers from erasing Trunks from history. Later she is shocked when the Future Warrior passes on Demigra's message, realizing that her fears of Demigra's involvement might be true after all.
After Mira's defeat, she is forced into action when she notices the mark Demigra had placed on the Warrior's right hand; thanks to her quick reaction, she is able to remove, seal, and throw it away just as it explodes saving Trunks and the Warrior from being killed by the resulting explosion as Demigra had intended. She reveals the mark was Demigra's Majin Emblem and tries to explain things further only to be alerted by Tokitoki to Demigra's presence inside the Time Nest. She refuses Demigra's demand that she hand over Tokitoki, stating that he only deserved to remain imprisoned forever inside the Crack of Time and realizes he only helped the Future Warrior previously in order to use them to defeat Mira and Towa, after they had outlived their usefulness in the eyes of the Demon God. After an attack by Trunks, this Demigra is revealed to be a mirage created by Demigra's magic, confirming that he is still trapped in the Crack of Time. She later explains the situation to the Warrior and Trunks, as well explaining Demigra's history and her imprisonment of him in the Crack of Time, before telling them they must prevent Demigra's escape and put a stop to his plans. After the Future Warrior helps defeat Dark Kid Buu, she states that Demigra has grown much more powerful considering that his magic was able to affect and control someone as powerful as Kid Buu, despite Trunks' belief that there is no one else in history powerful enough for Demigra to use against them.
Trunks' theory seems to be proven correct when he finds no changes in the scrolls and suggest to the Warrior and Chronoa that Demigra has given up, only for Demigra's Mirage to suddenly appear inside the Time Vault and state he won't just give up considering he has spent 75 million years plotting his return. She is absolutely terrified when Demigra's Mirage enters the Time Scroll that records the "time when Beerus, the Freaking God of Destruction went to Earth" and demanded that Trunks and the Warrior prevent Demigra from taking control of Beerus, realizing that the entire universe could be destroyed if Demigra were to turn Beerus against them. Fortunately Beerus became aware of the Demon God's presence and only pretended to fall under his control in order to lure him out so he could personally destroy him for his blasphemy. After Demigra's Mirage was defeated by the combined might of Beerus and the Warrior, she nervously greets Lord Beerus when he and Whis visit the Time Nest to inquire as to Demigra's location and does her best trying to persuade Beerus into letting them deal with Demigra to the point she tries to bribe him with the promise she will cook him delicious meals, she explains a fight between Beerus and Demigra could potentially destroy the universe, something Beerus reveals that he is quite well aware of being the God of Destruction. Again fortunately, thanks to Trunks' conviction and Whis' suggest, Beerus agrees to test the Warrior and Trunks to see if they are powerful enough to defeat Demigra and he even agrees to her request said test take place somewhere other than the Time Nest. She is relieved when Trunks and the Warrior manage to pass Beerus' test and Beerus decides to return home to his temple, to the point she waves good-bye to Beerus and Whis as they leave. After Beerus' departure, she returns her attention back to Demigra, stating that their mission is to stop Demigra and that they cannot fail, with both Trunks and the Warrior in agreement.
She later springs into action when Trunks discovers that Demigra has used the Dragon Balls to revive Frieza, Cell, and Kid Buu and empowered them with Villainous Mode; she orders Trunks to protect Tokitoki and has the Future Warrior deal with the revived villains while she uses the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron. It is later revealed she used the Dragon Balls of Age 850 by making a wish to inform Goku of the situation so he could assist the Time Patrol in stopping Demigra and help the Warrior defeat the revived villains, as well as Villainous Mode Gohan, Gotenks, and Vegeta after they fall under Demigra's control. Once Demigra escapes, attacks Toki Toki City, managing to consume Tokitoki, and places Future Trunks under his control, forcing him to fight against the Future Warrior, she appears and warns Trunks has fallen victim to Demigra's Magic. Reveling in his victory, Demigra calls her the ex-Supreme Kai of Time and Taunts her by saying her services are no longer required, as he has usurped her position, though she responds back calling him a menacing fool and demands he give back Tokitoki. The Demon God states that she and the Warrior will receive divine retribution for defying him and she curses the demon after he sarcastically mocked the pain Future Trunks suffered due to damage inflicted by the Future Warrior and watches as Future Trunks willingly endures the pain of his injuries in order to free himself of Demigra's control. She manage to foil Demigra's attempt to place the Future Warrior under his spell, thanks to a sword attack by the injured Trunks' distracting the Demon God, giving her time to remove the spell and saved the Future Warrior from being forced to fight against her and Trunks.
Demigra decides to show the Warrior his full power, stating she will be his next target once the Warrior is dealt with. She is relieved when Goku suddenly arrives via Instant Transmission and joins in the battle against Demigra. She congratulates Goku and the Warrior after they manage to beat Demigra and holds up the injured Trunks when he almost collapses due to his injuries, before explaining that Demigra swallowed Tokitoki, causing the Future Warrior to attempt to retrieve the bird from Demigra's body only for the Demon God to rise revealing he was still alive before fleeing. Luckily Goku manages to home in on Demigra's ki signature and together with Trunks and the Future Warrior, she holds on to Goku as he teleports them to Demigra's location with Instant Transmission. To her horror, they arrive inside the Time Vault where Demigra has unleashed a whirlwind of demonic energy and announces his plan to destroy the Time Vault; Trunks is rendered unconscious due to his injuries. Chronoa tries to reason with him, informing him that if history is erased he will also be destroyed, but Demigra dismisses her warning-— he's already aware of the danger, yet has apparently figured out a way to survive the destruction of the universe and create a new history; he thus begins attacking the Time Vault. Chronoa demands to know what Demigra's planning. She watches as Goku turns Super Saiyan 3 and flies towards Demigra with the Future Warrior. She watches in horror as the Warrior is hit by one of Demigra's spears and is pinned to the ground along with Goku who got hit as well while he was looking to see what had happened to the Warrior. Chronoa yells at Demigra in her anger and sorrow. Fortunately the Warrior somehow manages to use a Time Scroll that records Demigra's attack in Age 850 to travel back in time to help Goku and Chronoa before chasing after Demigra who has fled to his former prison Crack of Time as it exists outside the flow of time making it the only safe place for him, leaving Goku and Chronoa to prevent Demigra's giant energy sphere from destroying the Time Vault and the universe, while Warrior takes on the now transformed Demigra, to save Tokitoki and put an end to end to Demigra's plans once and for all.
After Goku manages to prevent the Time Vault's destruction, Chronoa tends to Trunks' injuries. When Goku and the Future Warrior return to the Time Nest with Tokitoki, she and Trunks greet them. She thanks everyone for all their hard work and is pleased when the Future Warrior accepts Trunks offer to continue working as a member of the Time Patrol. However she is quick to stop Goku and the Future Warrior from sparring inside the Time Nest, warning that if they accidentally damage the Time Vault then everything they just went through was all for nothing, causing Goku to realize he foolishly could have caused the destruction of the universe due to his excitement at fighting the Future Warrior, causing everyone to laugh at the irony of it. She later bids farewell and thanks Goku again for his help, though he says he is the one who should be thanking her for all the excitement. She also tells him to comes and visit again sometime. After Goku leaves, she and Tokitoki observe Future Trunks and the Future Warrior test some new Time Patrol Candidates, and watches the Future Warrior defeat all of 4 of them easily, though she and Tokitoki are startled by Trunks yelling at the Warrior for overdoing it, though Trunks eventually calms down and they all share a laugh. If the Warrior talks to her after Demigra's defeat, she will congratulate them and thank them for saving history, before commenting that now with the threat of Demigra over, she can be as lazy as she wants.
Her role in the second version of the ending is basically the same, she is shown healing Trunks' injuries though in this ending Goku is sitting nearby watching. When Tokitoki and the Future Warrior return she and Goku go to greet them with an excited Chronoa jumping over Trunks to greet them. The rest of the ending is pretty much the same, though if the Future Warrior talks to her after the alternate, the Future Warrior will tell her about seeing astral projections of Goku and the other Z Fighters in the Crack of Time, causing her to ask if they are sure they weren't daydreaming before explaining that what the Warrior saw may be due to how the Crack of Time is connected to different eras and that place technically shouldn't even exist, as a result nothing that happens there can be considered strange nor impossible. She tells the Future Warrior she'll check the scroll of ends and beginnings later, in order to verify what actually occurred during the Warrior's battle with Demigra.
"She hired lots more Time Patrollers to deal with the vast amounts of changes to history. Toki Toki City was overflowing with time rifts, and was at breaking point. That's when the dragon appeared, pushing the city over the edge. So Chronoa chose to transform Toki Toki City into Conton City. She said at the time, "It's just faster this way, don't you think?" Well, I can't say she was wrong... Still, I would keep this to yourself." — Time Patroller Salma recalling destruction of Toki Toki City and creation of Conton City in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
At some point in Age 851, Chronoa was forced to hire more Time Patrollers to deal with multiple time rifts that were appearing in Toki Toki City and called in Elder Kai to assist her with training new recruits, while Trunks and the now legendary Time Patroller, the Future Warrior were focusing on tracking down Mira and Towa who were still at large. Eventually, a rumor started in town about exactly how powerful divine beings such as Chronoa and Elder Kai actually were. Hearing these rumors, Chronoa and Elder Kai decided to demonstrate their power. Chronoa used her power to animate the dragon statue that adorn the Dragon Ball Pedestal in Toki Toki City. However her power caused it not only to move as if it were alive but also caused it to grow in size. Chronoa never expected it to grow so large. As Toki Toki City was already on the brink with all the time rifts, the dragon just pushed things over the edge and Toki Toki City was ultimately destroyed. Chronoa decided to turn the ruins of Toki Toki City into Conton City and the dragon eventually ended up floating in the skies north of the newly built Conton City. Chronoa and Elder Kai also decided to erect powerful barriers around both the Time Nest and Conton City to prevent an attack like Demigra's from ever happening again. To prevent accidents within Conton City, Chronoa enacted several laws such as prohibiting the use of energy attacks such as the Kamehameha within Conton City and requiring Time Patrollers to obtain a Flying License in order to fly legally within Conton City, a privilege usually reserved for only Elite members of the Time Patrol.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Chronoa continues to lead the Time Patrol in Age 852, supported by Future Trunks and the legendary Time Patroller Ace who had defeated Demigra two years earlier.
In Xenoverse 2, Chronoa selects a new Time Patroller that Elder Kai has taken a keen interest in for an important mission. She greets this new Future Warrior in Conton City, after they are informed of their new assignment by Elder Kai. After briefly admonishing them for flying recklessly in Conton City without a license, she tells them to find Elder Kai. After the Future Warrior manages to find Elder Kai in front of the portal to the Time Nest, Chronoa appears and offers to train the Future Warrior in the art of fighting. After covering the basics of movement, she has the Warrior face off in combat against some Saibaman. However just as they are about finished with the training, more Saibaman show up along with Copyman, Tennenman, Kyukonman, and Jinkouman. However Chronoa instructs the Warrior how to fight defensively and to use Evasive, Super, and Ultimate Skills to fight back. After the Warrior defeats them, Chronoa says she thinks they are ready to take on Time Patrol missions, but decides to have spar with a fellow Time Patroller first and gives them a capsule to teach them how to use items. After the Warrior's training is completed, the Warrior is sent to Age 761 to fix another time distortion involving Goku and Piccolo's battle with Raditz. Chronoa and Elder Kai communicate with the Warrior from the Time Nest and she notes that Raditz is stronger than he was in the proper timeline. After they help Goku defeat Raditz, she tells Elder Kai to stop rambling on as he congratulates the Warrior and gets into a brief argument with Elder Kai over her referring to Elder Kai as Old Man during which Elder Kai mentions he is only about a millennium older than her. Chronoa then decides to tell the Warrior about Demigra's attack on Toki Toki City and how the Legendary Time Patroller Ace saved both Toki Toki City and the Universe. Afterwards she gives them a vehicle capsule and tells them to go and explore Conton City. Eventually, Elder Kai and the Future Warrior along with assistance from Future Trunks and his legendary partner Ace, manage to discover Turles and Lord Slug have been recruited by Towa and Mira from different timelines to wreck havoc across history. Chronoa reveals that Goku defeated Turles and Slug in different timelines and suggests their motive for assisting Towa and Mira is revenge against Goku for defeating them.
While looking over the scroll for Age 762, Chronoa observes an altered history with Trunks and Elder Kai, where Ginyu stole Vegeta's body and poses with Jeice in front of a bewildered Krillin and Gohan. Elder Kai wonders what Vegeta is up to this time, only for Future Trunks to explain the Body Change, causing Chronoa to point out that it was Goku who Ginyu switched bodies with in the original history. Future Trunks decides to join the Future Warrior in investigating this change in the hopes it will lead to Mira and Towa. However it turns out to be a trap and Future Trunks has his body stolen by Dark Ginyu who uses it to confront Goku and the Future Warrior after they defeat Dark Recoome and Dark Burter. Chronoa becomes angry at Trunks for making such a huge blunder as it could lead to serious repercussions in history if left unfixed, though she tells him not to worry about it as they need to fix Trunks' mess before it causes any problems. Eventually Trunks in Ginyu's body, the Future Warrior, and Goku manage to weaken Ginyu forcing him to attempt to swap bodies with Goku, only for Trunks to shield Goku, allowing him to return to his original body. Afterwards Turles reappears and places Goku in a Full-Nelson allowing Ginyu to perform the Body Change on Goku. Turles and Ginyu in Goku's body confront the Future Warrior and Goku. Though Turles' actions technically restore the timeline, Turles hopes to take advantage of Goku weakened state while in Ginyu's body as a way to kill Goku and take revenge on him. Trunks apologizes for his blunder, though Chronoa reminds him that though their are some problems, all hope is not lost yet. Eventually the Future Warrior manages to defeat Turles and weakens Ginyu enough to force him to attempt another Body Change, which allows Goku to return to his original body. When Ginyu tries to steal the Warrior's body a second time, Goku throws a Namekian Frog in the path of Ginyu's body change causing him to switch bodies with the Frog, restoring history. After the Warrior returns to the Time Nest, Chronoa believes that recent events have confirmed their suspicions that Towa and Mira are working with Turles and Slug. She states that though they were able to stop her once before, Towa's scientific ability is absolutely frightening and that Mira has been fully revived with a massive amount of energy and is more powerful than he was previously during his final battle with Ace. She again admonishes Trunks for letting his guard down as history was almost ruined beyond repair. She warns the Future Warrior they need to be careful as Towa's brains and Mira's brawn are no laughing matter.
Afterwards Chronoa informs the Future Warrior about 5 time rift anomalies which have begun appearing in Conton City recently. Instead of explaining everything herself, she tells the Warrior to investigate these rifts to see things for themselves. After the Future Warrior has talked to one of the Time Patrol's five Murasaki Brothers within each rift, they return to Chronoa who asks them to investigate each rift whenever they get a chance to and decides to leave her explanation of other more dangerous rifts for a later time.
Back at the Time Vault, Chronoa and Elder Kai inform the Warrior that Towa has used Dark Magic to increased Frieza's power during his fight with Nail. Chronoa reveals that the Warrior will be handling this mission alone as Future Trunks and Ace are still searching for Mira and with them away, Towa and Mira will have their sights set on them. When Elder Kai warns the Warrior to stay focused fighting Frieza, Chronoa teases him by saying that if he is worried then he should just say it, causing Elder Kai to tell her to be quiet, he before wishes the Warrior good luck and sends them on their way. While the Warrior is fighting Frieza, Elder Kai admits he still does not agree with them using the Namekian Dragon Balls, causing Chronoa to tell him to quit his grumbling as it is already an established part of history. After the warrior manages to by Nail enough time for Dende to reach Gohan and Krillin, Elder Kai tells the warrior all they have to do now is find Turles and Slug, only for Chronoa to reveal they are right near the Namekian Dragon Balls. Elder points out that the Warrior will never make their in time to stop them and panics, causing Chronoa to tell the Warrior to return to the Time Vault. When Elder Kai protests, she tells him to shut up and give her time to think. The Future Warrior returns to the Time Nest as instructed and Chronoa welcomes them back, causing Elder Kai to remind her of the severity of the situation but she ignores him and hands the Future Warrior a Time Scroll. She then tells Elder Kai to use his head and explains that all the Warrior has to do is use the Time Scroll to go back in time a bit further to stop Turles and Slug from stealing the Namekian Dragon Balls. Elder Kai reveals he was unaware that was even possible and that it feels like cheating, causing Chronoa to tell him to stop being silly as defending history is the Time Patrol's solemn duty and they'll do whatever they have to do. She then bids the warrior good luck and sends them on their way. As the Future Warrior faces off against Turles and Slug who had eaten the Demon Realm enhanced Fruit of the Tree of Might, the dark energy starts welling up inside the pair and causes them to transform into a new powered-up state that gives them glowing pink eyes and black & white aura. Towa and Mira appear to observe the battle nearby and Chronoa confirms their identities to Elder Kai and the Future Warrior. Towa reveals that she had developed a new spell she that shaves off a persons life in order to unleash a new level of power which she decided to test on Turles and Slug. While Ace chases deals with Mira, Trunks joins the Warrior in taking down the empowered Turles and Slug who they manage defeat with a combined Energy Wave and Burning Attack. After Turles and Slug's defeat, Trunks decides to return to Mira location to assist Ace and Chronoa thanks him for his assistance. She orders the Future Warrior to join up with Gohan and the others as they had just used the Dragon Balls to revive Piccolo and summon him to Namek like in the original history, meaning the battle with Frieza is about to begin. When Goku attempts to defeat Frieza using the Spirit Bomb like in the original history, Chronoa comments that North Kai sure comes up with humdingers, even though he can't use them himself. After Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan following Krillin's death, Chronoa confirms that history is flowing on its natural course, though it still won't be easy for Goku due to Frieza still receiving power from Towa. After the Warrior and Goku manage to back Frieza into a corner, Elder Kai believes that they can leave the rest to Goku and the Warrior can return, but Chronoa points out things went too smoothly and though she hopes it is the end of the history changes in this era, she reveals she has a bad feeling that it isn't. After Frieza uses his Destroy The Planet!, Cooler suddenly appears on Dying Namek in Age 762 to assist his brother in his battle against Super Saiyan Goku. Chronoa reveals like Turles and Slug, Cooler must have been brought in from another timeline, which Cooler later confirms when he explains his sudden appearance to Frieza. She informs the Warrior that Cooler is even stronger than Frieza and that even if Goku is a Super Saiyan, he won't be able to defeat the brothers both at once, and that it all depends on the Future Warrior's efforts to correct history. Eventually the Warrior manages to weaken Frieza and defeats Cooler, by knocking him into what is left of the molten core of Dying Namek, allowing Goku to continue his fight with Frieza after Dende uses the Namekian Dragon Balls to transport the others to Earth restoring the original history. Chronoa and Elder Kai congratulate the Warrior on their success in defeating both Frieza and Cooler. Chronoa is surprised that Towa and Mira were able to recruit such powerful ally as Cooler, causing Trunks to suggest they recruited whoever was free. Chronoa asks where Ace is and Trunks informs her that they are currently chasing Mira. Afterwards in recognition for their defeat of Frieza and Cooler, Chronoa gives the Future Warrior a Flying License allowing them to legally fly around Conton City and states that it means they are now considered an Elite Patroller and are no longer an mere apprentice.
Dragon Ball Heroes
Dark Demon Realm Saga
Chronoa leads the Time Patrol into battle against the Dark Makai army in the Demon Realm. During the heroes' battle with Mira, the Time Kai brings the Supreme Kai avatars to assist and then leaves the battlefield. After the battle, she and Future Trunks confront Towa, and have a brief discussion with her before she summons Super Mira and attacks them. After the defeat of Towa, Xeno Dabura and Super Mira escapes from a dark portal along with the unconscious Towa.
Seventy-five million years before Xenoverse, during the foundation of the Demon Realm, Chronoa (who was not yet Supreme Kai of Time) managed to fight against the younger Demigra (who was much weaker before he became the Demon God), Putine, and Gravy at the same time.
She managed to seal the Demon God Demigra during his failed attempt to seize control of the Time Nest in 75 Million Before Age, though at that time Demigra was much weaker and during the 75 million years he was sealed, Demigra managed to increase his strength and by the time he escaped in Age 850, she was completely outclassed by the Demon God and had to rely on the strength of Xeno Trunks, Goku, and the Future Warrior to defeat him after he managed to consume Tokitoki. It is unclear if Chronoa's power had decreased during those 75 Million years. She is also terrified of the God of Destruction Beerus, though it is unclear if her fear is due to her being weaker than him, that she is simply afraid of the potential destruction he could cause, or both.
Despite being weaker than Demigra during the events of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, she is shown to be skillful enough to seal Demigra's self-destructing magic Majin Emblem and throw it away just in time to save Xeno Trunks, the Future Warrior, and herself from the resulting explosion. This along with her sealing of Demigra in the Crack of Time indicates she is quite skilled when it comes to Sealing techniques and apparently well versed at recognizing magic and magic-based techniques, such as the Majin Emblem and Demigra's Dark Magic, and is apparently a skilled and powerful magic user in her own right as she was able to counter both the Majin Emblem and even managed to dispel Demigra's Dark Magic (despite his power increase and previously consuming Tokitoki) when he tried to use it on the Future Warrior (although she was likely helped by Demigra being distracted at the time by Xeno Trunks).
With the foundation of the Time Patrol, Chronoa herself usually refrains from actual combat and takes on a supportive role of mentor and supreme commander, while Xeno Trunks acts as field leader. This may be partially due to Supreme Kai of Time's role as Tokitoki's protector and caretaker, as well as her position as the god that rules over Time and Space. In Xenoverse 2, Chronoa is attacked and briefly knock out by Towa during her infiltration of the Time Nest to steal Tokitoki's Egg. Due to the nature of the attack it is unknown if Towa in Xenoverse 2 is stronger than Chronoa or Chronoa was simply caught off-guard as it was basically a sneak attack. Regardless Chronoa manage to recover quickly afterwards and her injuries were not serious.
As a Shinjin, Chronoa possesses the ability to use both normal and godly ki, as well as being capable of sensing both. Presumably like the other Supreme Kais she is several times stronger than pre-resurrection Frieza.
As the Supreme Kai of Time, Chronoa has the power to erase alternate timelines and remove other anomalies created by time travel and/or alterations of history, though she can choose to leave them as they are as she did with Future Trunks' and Cell's timelines. She can also manipulate time in her vicinity though she rarely uses this ability so the full extent of this ability is unknown.
In Dragon Ball Heroes, her ability to manipulate time is shown to be strong enough to freeze time of someone as powerful as Mira, though her ability to do so does have its limits as she was unable hold Mira after he transformed into Super Mira, indicating she may be weaker than Super Mira or he was able to overcome her ability to freeze time (similar to how Goku was able overcame Hit's Time-Skip).
Techniques and special abilities
- Flight - Chronoa is shown to be capable of using the technique to fly in Dragon Ball Heroes. She is also seen using the technique in the opening of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
- Magic - Chronoa is capable of using magic and magically-based techniques, as well as counter/dispel other forms of magic such as Demigra's Dark Magic. Before she was Supreme Kai she was apparently already a skilled magic user as she was able to combat three wizards (Demigra, Gravy, and Putine) by herself.
- Time Manipulation - As the Supreme Kai of Time, she is capable of manipulating and controlling time. She is also capable of erasing changes to the timeline by others should she choose to.
- Freeze - Supreme Kai of Time possess the power to freeze her opponent's bodies time, she used it on Mira to stop him from interfering in the battle between Future Trunks and the Masked Saiyan, however Mira eventually broke out of it by transforming into Super Mira.
- Sealing Spells - Chronoa is shown to be quite proficient with sealing spells as she sealed Demigra inside the Crack of Time after his failed attempt to seize control of the Time Nest in 75 Million Before Age. She also uses a sealing spell to contain/counter Demigra's Self Destructing Majin Emblem inside as energy sphere allowing her to throw it away before it detonated.
- Healing - As a Kai, Chronoa possess the ability to rejuvenate anyone and restore them to full health instantly, even if they are on the brink of death. Chronoa uses this technique to heal Future Trunks' injuries sustained during his fight with the Future Warrior while under the control of Demigra's Dark Magic.
- Time Judgement - Chronoa's super attack in Dragon Ball Heroes. Chronoa summons a giant cloud that shoots a pink blast down at the enemy.
- Sacred Furious Light Bullet (神聖烈光弾) - Chronoa's super attack in Dragon Ball Heroes.
- Kai Kai - In Dragon Ball Super, it is revealed that the Supreme Kai in every universe has the ability to instantly teleport to any other universe, including Zen-Oh's Palace.
- As a divine being, Chronoa has the power animate inanimate objects such as the Dragon statue that become the Conton City Dragon. However her control of this power is apparently not very good, as she causes the dragon to grow so large that it ends up destroying Toki Toki City. It is unclear if she actually breaths life into said object (which could be related to her status as a God of Creation) or simply animates it via her power.
Video game appearances
- Dragon Ball Online (mentioned)
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse
- Dragon Ball Heroes
- Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden
- Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
- Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle
Chronoa makes her debut as a playable character in a video-game in the third mission of the God Mission series (GDM3). Her years prior of becoming a Kaioshin is also a playable character under the name Chronoa, being introduced in the seventh mission (GDM7).
- She is one of the oldest Supreme Kais still living (being at least over 75 million years old) and one of the three Supreme Kais of Universe 7 known to have not been killed or absorbed by the original Majin Buu (due to her living in Time Nest to guard the Time Storage Vault).
- According to Elder Kai, she is about a millennium (1000 years) younger than him and her appearance has not changed in 75 million years since he last saw her.
- She is the only character in Dragon Ball Xenoverse to refer to the Future Warrior with a feminine pronoun/terminology. During Buu Buu! Majin Buu Cutscene 4 she clearly refers to the Future Warrior with the feminine pronoun "Her".
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, when you train with Gotenks and you talk to him, he'll say that he thinks Chronoa is cute and couldn't help but say yes when girls like her ask him for favors, indicating that she may have asked Gotenks to train the Future Warrior after she told him he was too young to join the Time Patrol.
- She reveals to the Future Warrior that she deceived Trunks so she could gain a much needed assistant. His journey to the past was the first time distortion in the universe and as such was not yet against the law. Furthermore, she could have undone it, but chose not to as she realizes that despite the damage and potential danger of tampering with the timeline, Trunks' reasons were noble and were ultimately for the greater good as history didn't turn out for the worse. She also didn't really think Trunks would take her lie about the use of Time Machines being a mortal sin to heart and didn't expect him to be such a serious-minded person who takes the role of being her assistant very seriously, even jokingly stating he should be called "Super Serious" instead of Super Saiyan.
- Future Trunks mentions that before he became her assistant and established the Time Patrol she was quite lonely, causing her to enjoy people's company and having someone to talk to besides Tokitoki. He also mentions she has a keen interest in technology, as she is fascinated by the robots and inventions provided by Future Trunks from the Capsule Corporation and often questions Trunks about them and how they work. Unfortunately she is untidy, leaving her stuff all over the place near her home in the Time Nest once she became bored with them (there is a large pile of stuff around her home inside the Time Nest). Trunks even once brought her a cleaning robot to clean things up for her, however she was so fascinated by it she caught it and never let it go. She kept asking it so many questions, it short circuited and eventually blew smoke causing Trunks to just give up and clean for her.
- In the GT Pack 2 DLC, it is revealed that Chronoa is a horrible cook, though she believes her cooking is "fit for a god". Future Trunks describes her cooking as "more terrible than any evil Shenron".
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, her homemade Pudding was so horrible, that Goku was unable to properly move due to a bellyache, and her Pudding also caused Beerus to almost destroy the universe because of his anger. Despite this, Chronoa remains oblivious to her terrible cooking skills, to the point she mistakenly took criticism from Whis about her cooking as a compliment and wanted to prepare the feast to celebrate the return of Tokitoki's Egg, but Tokitoki convinces her make a wish for a feast to Shenron instead.
- She is the first Kaioshin revealed to actually have a name other than her title, Chronoa. This name is likely based off Khronos/Chronos, the god and personification of Time in pre-Socratic philosophy and his name is also the etymological root of several English terms relating to time such as chronology, chronometer, chronic, anachronism, and chronicle. The trend of Kais actually having names is later extended into Dragon Ball Super, starting with Zamasu and Gowasu from Universe 10 and continuing with the Supreme Kais from the other universes, as well as establishing that Shin, the World Tournament alias used by Universe 7's Eastern Supreme Kai, is in fact his real name.
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Chronoa's hairstyle appears as custom hair option Type 24 for female Saiyans and Earthlings.
- In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Majin Time Patroller Kyume reveals she once asked Chronoa her type and reveals that Chronoa is attracted to wild, tough, and handsome older men that are also open-minded, almost like how she thought Bardock was "dreamy".
- Chronoa does not show any signs of age despite being at least 75 million years old. It is unclear if this is due to her status as the Supreme Kai of Time or power over time, or due to the aging process of the Shinjin. In Xenoverse 2, Elder Kai states that her appearance has not changed since he last saw her before being sealed away in the Z Sword by Beerus. However her apparent agelessness is fitting given her position as the Supreme Kai that governs time (and by extension age which is caused by the progression of time).
- Elder Kai was originally excited at the thought of seeing Chronoa after having not seen her in 75 million years, though this is mainly due to his lecherous tendencies as he enquires about her appearance in Xenoverse. In Xenoverse 2, Elder Kai was at first happy when he was asked by Chronoa to help out the Time Patrol, though he reveals that he was disappointed when he discovered that her appearance had not changed at all in 75 million years (he somewhat implies that he had hoped she would have grown up into a more attractive woman).
- Ironically, several of Chronoa's original concept designs depict her with an older more voluptuous appearance which would have been more in line with what Elder Kai would likely had envisioned. Presumably, Chronoa's current design was likely selected to contrast better with Towa's, as well as make Chronoa seem younger than she actually is.
- Chronoa has made at least two wishes on the Dragon Balls. The first was to inform Goku in Age 778 of the threat of Demigra in Xenoverse. The second was to wish up a feast to celebrate the return of Tokitoki's Egg in Xenoverse 2.
