* [[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.

* [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireII The second game]] features Ryu as a young boy who, after nodding off to sleep one morning, finds his family has vanished and no one else recognizes him. Flash to adulthood, where Ryu must clear his buddy's name after he is caught breaking inside a vault. Seems like small potatoes, but it gradually unravels a big-time conspiracy involving Myria's offspring, who has some massive evil plans, indeed. While the translation was rather shoddy, a high-quality [[http://www.romhacking.net/translations/1384/ fan translation]] exists.

* Also in the first few games, really, ''really'' weird dungeon design. The first few games had levels that included the inside of a giant robot, the mind of a tree with Alzheimer's and the stomach of an overweight queen (which must be flattened by killing all the monsters that have infested it). Yes, really.
