* WeWereYourTeam: In the childhood era, the only thing keeping the group together is Ryu, his search for Rei and Teepo, and Garr's desire to take him to Angel Tower. [[spoiler: After Angel Tower, Ryu is MIA and Rei and Teepo are nowhere to be found. Nina returns to Wyndia, while Momo becomes a consulting engineer and tries to find out more about Peco. Garr, however, chases after Ryu, because their confrontation had left him with more questions than answers.]]

* ILetYouWin: Realized by [[spoiler: Garr at Angel Tower. After Ryu, a mere child, defeats him using only a fraction of the Brood's power, he realizes that there is no possible way that the Guardians could have defeated the Brood if they had actually fought back. That leads him to question why they ''didn't'' fight back with their full strength, and why God wanted them destroyed in the first place.]]

The third game in the long-running EasternRPG series Franchise/BreathOfFire, released on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation in September 1997 in Japan and April 1998 in North America. It was later ported into the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable system and released in August 2005 in Japan and February 2006 in Europe, with [[NoExportForYou no North American release.]](Until 2016.) As typical for the [=BoF=] series, several characters from the earlier games are reinvented here.

The game takes place in a StandardFantasySetting, except that it has [[PettingZooPeople humanoid animals]] co-existing peacefully with humans. There are also some machines, though [[SchizoTech their origin is a mystery]]. A long time ago there also existed a race of dragons, but they were killed off for some forgotten reason; only their fossils remain, turned into crystals which are mined to power machines.

* TheCameo: Following in VideoGame/BreathOfFireII's tradition, though obscured due to the translator's ignorance. From ''VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire|I}}'' there's Mogu, Bo (named Gary from his Japanese name Gilly, which is short of his Japanese original Gilliam) and Ox (his Japanese name is Builder, which the translator changed into Worker). From ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'' we have Bow (not referred by name, though) and Jean (under his first name Ecarl/Ekaru). Ladon (the Dragon Lord/God of previous games) appears also as a Master. One can also spot Chun-Li and Sakura from ''StreetFighter'' watching from among the crowd in the contest.

* MagikarpPower: Peco.

He also shares the highest [[CounterAttack Reprisal]] rate in the game with one of Ryu's dragon forms and posesses innate HP regeneration, both of which you can easily take advantage of.

* MartialPacifist: Hondara. Before he'll allow you to study under him, you first have to learn how to fight without killing, which you accomplish by learning the otherwise useless moves of the ActualPacifist mentioned above.

* MaximumHPReduction: If someone was downed in battle and still down at the end, they would be brought back with 1 hp and have their max health reduced. The game also has the Mandrake healing item that's cheaper to buy than most other healing items and heals you to full, but likewise causes you to lose some of your max HP. Also, the game contains a move called Disembowel which inflicts HPToOne at the cost of reducing the ''user's'' maximum HP.
** There's also the [[ThatOneLevel Desert Of Death]], where you also lose a percentage of your max HP if you keep walking when you're thirsty: unlike the previous examples which capped the cumulative HP loss to 50% of max or so, your max HP can drop even further this way.
*** All above examples of max HP loss can only be cured by sleeping in an inn, sleeping at the always-available free tent doesn't cure it and neither do any of the items.
