* Breath attacks form a skill family in ''DragonQuest''. The weaker versions are pretty common among low- to mid-level monsters, while the most powerful breath attacks tend to be spammed by bosses. (Especially the FinalBoss.) Later games allow the player to recruit monsters or use special character classes that have access to these abilities. What makes them particularly obnoxious is that despite dealing elemental damage, they don't count as magic attacks, so the only ways to protect yourself from them are with equipment, spells or skills which either reduce damage taken from those elements regardless of the nature of the attack, or specifically defend against breath attacks.

* The daedroth and spider daedra in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. The daedroth spits balls of fire; the spider daedra breathes lightning, and also casts a touch-range paralysis spell by exhaling green haze into its palm and then slapping the target.
** Played with in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', which combines this trope with LanguageOfMagic: the dragons' breath attacks are brought about from words in the dragons' native language.

** Played with Subverted by [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', which combines this trope with LanguageOfMagic: ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''. While it might ''look'' like they have the dragons' breath attacks are brought about from words in the dragons' native language.ability to breathe fire and ice, they're actually using [[LanguageOfMagic Thu'um]] to conjure fire, ice, and other elements [[RealityWarper into existence]]. The [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] can also learn to do this.

* Ridley from ''{{Metroid}}'' often has an attack of that type, although his dragon-like nature makes it seem rather logical.
** The MetroidPrime also has it. Many monsters spew fireballs (and some, [[AnIcePerson freezeballs]]).

** It's also all but stated in the UDON comics that Dhalsim's fire is actually an illusion, and it will only burn you if you ''believe'' it will.

* ''FireEmblem'' dragons, both manaketes and the laguz, attack with their breath. Sometimes, there are even multiple different types of breath for dragons to use, based on either the species of the dragons themselves or the dragonstones they possess.
