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 VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever line. Though Ryu and a few other characters do appear in the "Hero and Heralds" card battle mode in ''VideoGame/UltimateMarvelVsCapcom3'' (and [[https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2017/feb/14/over-150-female-characters-were-considered-addition-umvc3-none-them-made-cut-niitsuma-details-roster-choices/ the producers said they were considering Fou-Lu from Breath of Fire IV for the latter game]], but ultimately decided against including him because they thought nobody outside of Japan would recognize him).

* 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/BreathOfFire6'' 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.

** Most of the CreativeClosingCredits in ''II'' are so chock-full of western culture references that it probably went over most japanese's heads.

''Breath of Fire'' is a long-running console EasternRPG series from {{Capcom}}. Each entry can largely be considered a SpiritualSuccessor to the previous entry, with stories that are only tenuously connected and recurring gameplay elements and mythology. Each game features:

* CapcomVsWhatever: An extremely rare subversion of this trope. The closest the ''Breath of Fire'' series has EVER come to any Capcom crossover game whatsoever is with a background screen showing characters from ''III'' in a hidden bonus level of [[StreetFighter Pocket Fighter]], Ryu and Nina cards (from ''IV'') in the extremely obscure game ''SNKVsCapcom: Card Fighters Clash'' (a ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh''-esque game which was the final console release for the equally obscure [[UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars NeoGeo Pocket]]), Ryu and Nina cards (from ''Dragon Quarter'') in the NintendoDS ''SNKVsCapcom: Card Fighters DS'', and multiple "license card" cameos in the upcoming ''Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3'' (the "license card" operates in "Heroes and Heralds" mode, and is a ''Card Fighter''-esque method to unlock abilities). There has been no appearance or mention of ''Breath of Fire'' in any other ''CapcomVsWhatever'' game, not even games like ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' where a cameo would actually have made sense.
** Mind you, it's probably because these games usually have another [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]]...
** According to [[http://twitter.com/Ryota_Niitsuma/status/28520257938 a tweet by Ryota Niitsuma]] (a member of the Marvel vs. Capcom staff) [[http://www.dragon-tear.net/forum/showpost.php?p=253996&postcount=15 there were initial plans to include characters]] from ''Breath of Fire'' in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', but these were dropped due to "the game being geared towards Western audiences". The developers were apparently ''very'' interested in specifically placing Fou-lu from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' and apparently would like to include this in a future CapcomVsWhatever.
*** The closest they were able to get to the above was sticking a Fou-lu card in the aforementioned "Heroes and Heralds" mode of ''Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3''; the other cameos include the first Ryu, the second Nina, Myria from ''III'', and Lin from ''Dragon Quarter''.

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.
