The Tyrano Lair is a large fortress in 65,000,000 B.C. in Chrono Trigger. It's one of the hideouts of Azala and the Reptites.

The Tyrano Lair is in the center of the continent, surrounded by volcanoes and pools of lava.


Unnatural Selection?

Crono and his friends enter the Tyrano Lair only to be attacked by numerous prehistoric creatures. Fighting their way through the castle, they make it to the upper levels to find Azala, who unleashes the Black Tyrano on them. As the battle begins, a bright red star is seen in the sky.

When the battle ends and Azala and the Black Tyrano are beaten, Azala explains that the star will crash down to earth ushering in a long ice age. Ayla mentions that in her language, "La" means fire and "Vos" means big. They soon realize that Lavos is the entity that's crash-landing on earth. Lavos descends from space in the Prehistoric era.

Kino arrives with the Dactyls to rescue Crono's party just before Lavos crashes down on the Tyrano Lair.

When it hits and the dust settles, they return to the Lair to find nothing, but a giant crater.


There are many rooms and balconies, but no specific locations within the Tyrano Lair.
