Not to be confused with Adron e'Kieron's Breath of Fire Battallion (light cavalry, all of whom are powerful sorcerers) in ''[[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Five Hundred Years After]]''.

* GodIsGood: Ladon, the Dragon God, is shown throughout the series to be very real and very much an awesome guy; usually being a wacky combination of BunnyEarsLawyer, CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, TheDumbledore, GrumpyOldMan and TheObiWan.

* [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII The third game]] is the series' first foray onto the PlayStation and into 3D. We once again follow Ryu as he ages from a child to an adult, eventually learning he is the [[TheChosenOne savior]] of his people, the Brood. Once again, the game's antagonist is a religious figure.

* The fifth game, known as ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter'', is the only one for the PlayStation 2, and a radical departure for the series, both in gameplay and setting. Ryu attempts to escape a grimy, DieselPunk-inspired [[BeneathTheEarth underground civilization]] with Nina in tow, despite the surface world being declared off-limits. Standing in their way is Bosch, Ryu's ex-partner and bona fide ImplacableMan. Interestingly, the story is a little bit different [[NewGamePlus every time]] you start over.

* The original game, ''VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire|I}}'', focuses on Ryu's quest to save his sister and the world from BigBad Zog, who aims to release Myria, a goddess of temptation and strife. It was localized by SquareSoft rather than Capcom, the game's makers, resulting in a translation that really wasn't as bad as it could have been. However, Square's translators changed a lot of names seemingly at random, making some of the connections between games vague.

* Capcom originally announced in August 2013 that a 6th installment of the series would be coming out in 2014. In a departure for the series, this new game wouldn't be available for any home or handheld console, but an exclusive release for smartphones, tablets, and Windows [=PCs=]. It was ultimately revealed that ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireVI'' would not see a release until the end of 2015, that it was indeed limited to mobile devices and touchscreen Windows platforms, and (perhaps most devastatingly for long-time North American and PAL fans) a Japan-only title.

While it's up in the air about the multiplayer online features, Capcom has stated there's a cross-platform feature that allows one to save and resume across multiple platforms.

** ''III'' also had a not-terribly-obscure-in-its-own-country ShoutOut with the original names of Kukuys (Kukurusu) and Doan. This is a reference to the ''MobileSuitGundam'' episode "Cucuruz Doan's Island", and was likely renamed in the English version because this episode at is still in KeepCirculatingTheTapes mode (reportedly the episode [[http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/Mobile_Suit_Gundam_Episode_Guide#Episode_15:_Cucuruz_Doan.27s_Island has never been translated to English on Tomino's direct order]] as he feels "Cucuruz Doan's Island" was substandard and essentially filler).

Also notable about the series is Capcom's apparent "[[TheUnfavorite hate]]" of the series, being one of the few (and most prominent) to not appear in the CapcomVsWhatever line. Though Ryu and a few other characters do appear in the "Hero and Heralds" card battle mode in UltimateMarvelVsCapcom3

Added DiffLines:

** The translation of the second game, aside from some alcohol references and a certain Puff-Puff massage scene, ''was'' actually accurate since it was a direct translation of the Japanese script word by word. The problem was that Japanese is a very vague language often omitting parts of sentences and relying heavily on context, besides having a very different grammatical structure for sentences. Most translations from Japanese fill in those blanks from context. However, Breath of Fire II, and infamously Final Fantasy 7, did not - and the resulting "English" translation is almost unintelligible.
