** More plausible is the idea that there may be residual licensing issues from the ''North American'' release of the first ''BreathOfFire'' that essentially prevent the franchise from being included in a CapcomVsWhatever. Square and Capcom actually share distribution rights in the US for the first game (due to Capcom having farmed out the localisation of ''I'' to Squaresoft) and this explanation does become ''slightly'' more plausible with the news [[http://www.gofanboy.com/go-fanboy-news/2363-square-enix-bringing-valkyrie-profile-sequel-to-xbox-360-and-more SquareEnix is apparently working on ports of ''I'' and ''II'' to the XBox360 to be formally announced at E3]]. (Of note, SquareEnix ''doesn't'' have distro rights for ''II'' unless Capcom is specifically licensing it.)

*** At least some media reports have indicated that developers at ''Capcom'' have a real interest in reviving the franchise (which has actually been backed up by the jettisoned ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' plans) but that the main issue--per the CEO of Capcom at the time--was funding. (The CEO who gave the statement resigned from Capcom effective November 2010, which has in and of itself revived rumours that the series may finally exit its seven years of DevelopmentHell--the popular perception has been that the CEO (who was responsible for the VideoGame/MegaMan franchise) may have been nixing revivals.)

** And pretty much each and every single UrbanLegendOfZelda regarding why the ''BreathOfFire'' franchise has never ended up in a CapcomVsWhatever got blown out of the water by a recent tweet from the ''MarvelVsCapcom'' development team (which in and of itself has, in addition to the CEO of Capcom leaving, added ''considerable'' fuel to the "are they going to revive ''BreathOfFire''" rumour mill).
*** Specifically, there ''were'' plans to add Fou-lu from ''IV'' as a playable character in ''MarvelVsCapcom 3''--plans that got nixed as the ''MarvelVsCapcom'' franchise was marketed primarily for Western audiences and ''BreathOfFire'' was seen as less popular in the West. The same development team has expressed interest in having Fou-lu in a ''future'' CapcomVsWhatever--so at least for ''IV'', there's no problems with ''licensing'' that would prohibit a CapcomVsWhatever.

** You forget that the Wyndians in ''I'' were able to freely turn into giant birds (which was something of a plot point) while in ''IV'' they were still humanoid when they flew. Perhaps they wanted to be able to fly more freely and in-between ''IV'' and ''I'' they found a way to change into full on birds.

[[WMG: Highfort ''thought'' it was at war with...]]
* Simafort. The false Jean was going to run the other side and he and Shupkay were going to play both sides against the middle. When he was killed off by Ryu, she had to improvise.
* Tunlan.

No one. It was a smokescreen for having their army ambushed and slaughtered by demonic forces (Or from another perspective, they were at war with the demons but weren't aware of it). Shupkay was the MoleInCharge and intended to use the forgotten superweapon to assist the demons' invasion plans, and to kill off the one threat to her leadership while she was at it.

[[WMG: BOF1 Myria/Tyr actually was the child she pretended to be. By BOF3, she's matured enough to try making up for her old villainy.]]
Of course, she also (consciously or subconsciously) couldn't resist eliminating everything that would have explained [[OldShame her past]] as a GoddessOfEvil and wiped out the dragons so that another Ryu wouldn't show up to kill her again.

again before she finished. (Clearly, no one ever taught her what being good actually meant.)

*** One bit of circumstantial evidence that does give some credence to the "former CEO put the kibosh on any new BreathOfFire" idea--said CEO was also the primary developer behind the MegaManLegends series; almost all the RPG spinoffs have become a bit of TheUnfavourite since he has left Capcom (almost to the degree that the BreathOfFire series has suffered), and the company is actually acknowledging BreathOfFire enough to have re-releases (on PSN) and in multiple "card game power-up" cameos in ''Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3'' (in what is, by far, probably the most high profile ''any'' BreathOfFire character has been in a CapcomVsWhatever yet).
