In the year 1000 AD, a 17 year old boy called Crono lived with his mother. During the celebration of the millennium in the kingdom of Guardia, Crono's friend Lucca invented a time machine that accidentally sent a princess known as Marle back in time. Crono decided to get her back.

After finding Marle, the pair find out that they are not only in the future but an apocalyptic version of the year 2300 AD. After conversing with some of the surviving residents they find that the reason for such a bleak futures is a monster known as Lavos, a fiery-like alien being that crashed on earth millions of years ago.

He and his friend decided to defeat Lavos and prevent such a future from ever coming about. They went back to 1000 AD and stumble upon a dimension 'The End Of Time', a dimension that serves as a bridge to each specific time portals.
