Chrono Shindou is the main protagonist of Cardfight!! Vanguard G. Before getting into Vanguard, he was anti-social, and wasn't interested in much of anything. However, since getting into Vanguard, his personality has undergone a complete overhaul. In his debut, he is unfamiliar with the Cardfight Vanguard card game due to it not being available to him at his Orphanage. His Vanguard Circle's colour is violet-red.
Chrono possesses above average luck, able to successfully activate Mystery Flare Dragon's skill on the first try.
It has been stated on several occasions that Chrono has a strong imagination, which is said to be a valuable skill in a cardfighter. As shown in episode 1, Chrono is capable of hearing the voices of beings of Cray.
Chrono possesses incredible athletic ability, as shown when he caught two fortunes with his head.
