I've been replaying Chrono Trigger on the DS and have gotten to the point after the Ocean Palace where you fight Magus for the second time.

I think I killed him...

Have I missed the opportunity to have him in my party?

Why do you think you've "killed" him? – Sorean Oct 10 '11 at 17:56

Unfortunately yes. When you can choose whether to fight Magus or not, that decides whether he can join you or not.

After defeating the Blackbird [...] if Frog [or the Party] refuse [to fight Magus], Magus will join the party.

For that playthrough only. You should be able to recruit him again on the next go through. – CyberSkull Oct 11 '11 at 0:35
