As Crono and his party enter the Denadoro Mountains, they see Tata come running out being chased by a Goblin. The party ventures deeper into the mountains as Tata heads home.
After Crono and his party return from the Mountains, they journey back south to Tata's house in Porre. It's there that they find the frightened Tata who hands over the Hero's Medal. He says a frog dropped it in a cafe.
