[[quoteright:387:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/387px-bof2boxart_1921.jpg]]
The second entry into the long-running and popular Franchise/BreathOfFire Japanese RolePlayingGame series. It was released for the SuperNintendo in December 1994 in Japan and December 1995 for North America. It was later ported to the GameBoyAdvance in December 2001 in Japan, April 2002 for North America and June 2002 for Europe. It includes updated {{Character Portrait}}s, a dash button, upraded graphics for the menu screens, a trade option between games (with a few bonus items) and a re-balancing of Exp/Money given by enemies.

Ryu Bateson seems to have the ideal life as a young child. Sure, his mom is missing, but his sister Yua and father Ganer love him very much. However, that all changes when, after saving his sister from a rampaging monster, he goes back into his hometown of Gate only to realize that [[RetGone no one remembers not only who he is, but who his father or sister are]] (the two of them have disappeared, natch). After spending the night at the local church's orphanage with his new friend Bow Doggy, he decides to flee his hometown for greener pastures.

Flash forward 10 years where he and Bow are now Rangers, working to protect the people of [=HomeTown=] from various monsters. One day, they get a mysterious call from a princess of Windia that will change their lives...

There are two things that stand out most about this game. The first is the [[BlindIdiotTranslation terrible, terrible job that Capcom did translating it]] from the original Japanese (all kinds of butchered names exist). The second is the fact that despite this being the '90s, when Nintendo of America's censorship policies were in full swing, this game got away with having numerous and explicit references to both religion and death. The BigBad is a deity, for crying out loud! It's pretty much the opposite of what happened with VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV.

There exists a [[Characters/BreathOfFire character sheet]] for the series. Place any character-related tropes there.

----
!Provides Examples Of:

* [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer Absurdly Spacious Toilet]]
* AlmightyIdiot: Deathevan after he goes OneWingedAngel.
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The page picture is the original Japanese box art. North America got something close to what one would find in ConanTheBarbarian. In short, [[http://image.com.com/gamespot/images/bigboxshots/0/563530_29076_front.jpg Bow looks like he wants to chew you... with the rest of the crew trying to do the same to you.]]
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: In some events you take control of Sten, then Nina, and then [[spoiler:Ryu's mother Valerie]].
* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler:Particularly if you're in the Church of Saint Eva. Tiga, Claris, Ray, Rand's mother, and potentially Ganer all bite it in that area.]]
* ApatheticCitizens: Two flavors.
** First: The citizens of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Fantasy Counterpart Amphibian France]] Sima Fort on the whole can tell that the person claiming to be prince Jean is an impostor bent on stealing the throne. They also on the whole care a great deal more about [[FrenchCuisineIsHaughty haute cuisine]] and pursuing their various artistic passions than they do about the ongoing coup d'etat. See {{Cloudcuckooland}}, below.
** Second, and more disturbing: The citizens of Evrai, [[spoiler: who, when not mindlessly and joyfully praising St. Eva, are little more than {{Empty Shell}}s incapable of independent thought and action, with their ability to communicate cut down to vague mutterings of distress using as few words as possible.]]
* ApocalypticLog: The deserted hunter's lodge contains a diary, with this summation: Do NOT go into the woods.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Averted by the Death spell; unlike most SNES jRPGs this one is SimpleYetAwesome since it works on a majority of non-boss enemies (but has a pretty simple animation).
* BadassPreacher: Ray.
* BerserkButton: You do NOT mess with Ryu's friends. EVER. [[spoiler: Not even if you are God.]]
* BigBad: Deathevan.
* BilingualBonus: Eichichi's PunnyName, for starters.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: A famous exponent, to boot; this game came as close to a TranslationTrainWreck as is possible without becoming totally incoherent.
** Led to the ''extremely'' well-done d4s German FanTranslation (complete with the GBA gameplay tweaks added into the SNES game and a new intro that makes great use of original game art). The d4s version has since led to other-language retranslations of the game, such as Ryusei's 2009 English translation.
* BookcasePassage: The hidden entrance to Bando's crypt. A [[PercussiveMaintenance sharp blow]] from Katt's stick reveals it.
* BottomlessPitRescueService: Nina, if she's leading your party in a dungeon, and not transformed into her angelic shaman-fused form. Averted in Thieves' Tomb, though, possibly due to the pits moving around.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: Surprisingly little. Among the worst, most blatant Bowdlerisations is the writing of man-crazy witch's name Nimpho Mani (as in, nymphomania) as Nimufu Mani.
* BrokenAesop: There's a touching scene with Katt/Lin/Rinpoo (depending on translation), where she [[spoiler:explains to Tiga that people don't just fall in love at first sight. Then it turns out that Ganer and Valerie, Ryu's parents, fell in love at first sight.]]
** [[spoiler: Since we never really see how long Ganer and Valerie dated before they got married, the point may be that it's not good to rush things, especially with love-at-first-sight cases. After all, Tiga practically proposed to Katt the very second he laid eyes on her, which Ganer did ''not'' do.]]
* ButThouMust: Quite a few, such as when Petape [[BrokenBridge sinks your boat]], leaving you with no way out of Sima Fort and therefore no choice but to save Jean. She later forces you to [[ForeignQueasine eat the food]] during the CookingDuel then complains when you [[VomitDiscretionShot find it unpalatable.]]
* CantCatchUp: It takes roughly half the game to clear Bow's name, by which time he'll be far behind everyone else in [[CharacterLevel exp]] when he rejoins.
** To be fair, he ''can'' catch up; it'll just take some time grinding him. (And it's well worth it too, as he becomes the party's best healer.)
** Pretty much everyone compared to Ryu. Since you CantDropTheHero, he will almost always be higher-leveled than the rest of your party.
* CashLure: You can catch the fish man merchant Maniro by baiting your hook with a gold bar.
* ChekhovsGun: Arguably [[spoiler:the Township itself]], for a role it will play in the true ending of the game.
* ClearMyName: Bow. Infamous for being one of the longest {{Fetch Quest}}s in JRPG history. Humorously, this plot culminates in rescuing Jean, after he's jailed for [[{{Irony}} impersonating the Prince]], which is another quest for [[ClearMyName clearing the name]] of another character. This whole quest takes up about 4 out of 10 chapters.
* {{Cloudcuckooland}}: Sima Fort. The resident are so laid back, they don't even care if there's a coup d'état.
* CockFight: Optional; if you choose to claim there is something between Katt and Ryu, Tiga will challenge Ryu to a duel, which, sadly, [[HopelessBossFight isn't winnable]].
* ColonyDrop: In the best ending.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Each of the Shamans' [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hair color]] corresponds to their respective element.
* {{Confessional}}: A selectable option at every St. Eva church. The priest's response changes according to Ryu's current mission.
* ControllableHelplessness: Used to initiate the SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome in the YMMV tab.
* CookingDuel: A literal example.
* CorruptChurch: [[spoiler: Evarai can be seen as this]]. One of the first games to pull this trope off effectively.
* CreativeClosingCredits: Rather than showing up the development staff, the credits lists the names of ''every single'' character in the game, even minor {{NPC}} and town dwellers, some times in full-name basis. This is also so full of {{Shout Out}}s to western culture that it counts as BilingualBonus for the Japanese.
* CutscenePowerToTheMax: It is simply implausible that anyone could take out Ryu so easily in a one-on-one fight, and then die like a chump not two hours later. Unless you're [[HopelessBossFight Tiga]].
* CrystalDragonJesus: The BigBad is one.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Much moreso than the first ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireI'' game. Heck, compared to a lot of SNES games at the time, this certainly fit.
* DeathMountain: Mt. Fubi, Mt. Rocko and Mt. Maori.
* DeathOfPersonality: The reason why being transformed into a "[[GiantFlyer Great Bird]]" is a heroic sacrifice [[spoiler: when Mina does it in Nina's place]]. To quote one NPC [paraphrased]:
--> "If you become a bird, your mind becomes a bird's. Isn't that the same as dying?"
* DemonicPossession: Several boss characters. Most are humans who were corrupted by power or greed.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Because you humor Jean's sister Petape in her attempts to expose the impostor Prince Jean (about which literally no one else, including the ''real'' prince Jean, cares all that much), he will have you executed.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: Katt wearing a nun's habit.
* DubNameChange: Plenty, mostly due to the BlindIdiotTranslation as it seems the translator doesn't even knew how to render names right (''Rand Marks'' instead of Land Marks). Other cases are due to space restrictions (Jean and Spar), making up new ones (Katt) or, randomly, because they wanted to adhere to VideoGame/{{Breath of Fire|I}}'s translation (Bleu, some magic spells)
* DuelBoss: More than a few. Ryu gets a couple, though one (Tiga) is unwinnable and the other (Barubary) is optional. Nina, Rand, Sten and Bow (optional) get theirs as well.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:The worst ending]] shows the silhouette of the BigBad, far before he normally appears.
* EldritchAbomination: The more you go through the game, the more the enemies start becoming this. In the beginning, we're talking things like two-headed werewolves. By the end of the game, you'll be seeing mini-Cthulhu's in priest gear, giant bloated scorpions with ''human skulls for heads'' and... and... [[http://spriters-resource.com/snes/breathfire2/sheet/19935 and whatever the hell THIS is supposed to be]]!
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: Infinity is an ''underground'' variant. Specially seen in the game's intro.
* FantasticVoyagePlot: A wizard shrinks the party in order for them to enter the body of Tunlan's Queen, who is growing obese due to the demons inside her.
* FlashbackEffects: Scenes from Ryu's past are DeliberatelyMonochrome. The game itself begins in black & white, but abruptly turns color when young Ryu enters the woods.
* ForeignQueasine: The frog-people's culinary, with its use of worms, roaches and flies. Ryu gets to taste some...with [[VomitDiscretionShot predictable results.]]
* FreeFallFight: Sten and Trubo battle on a collapsing bridge as it plummets.
* FusionDance: There are six recruitable shamans. Most of the party members can merge with up to two of them at a time. Ryu, on the other hand, absolutely ''can not'' because of his draconic heritage, but attempting to do so unlocks his dragon potential.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: As stated above, numerous - and explicit - references to both death and religion. Even more bizarre that Nintendo allowed this, yet denied the Snes version of Final Fantasy II/IV from using the word holy.
** In the ending credits, Eichichi's full name is given as [[PunnyName A. Titi Efcup]] and Nimufu's full name is given as Nimufu Mani.
** Father Manson.
** Killing the Gold Fly in the dungeons of Simafort prompts it to say "Damn...", at a time when swearing in video games was extremely rare (if not outright unheard of) in North America. Same for the "battlefield of hell" remark in Highfort, though it's ''slightly'' more understandable, given that it was using "hell" in the sense of a place.
* GiantMook: Any RandomEncounter on Monster Island counts as one. This also presents the debut of the series-recurrent [=GooKing=] enemy (or K.Sludge as its named in this one).
* {{Glamour}} / MassHypnosis: Evrai seems like a utopia full of happy citizens. [[spoiler: Try to leave, however, and they're revealed to be muttering, brainwashed puppets.]]
* GlassCannon: Katt. She can't take much physical abuse, but she can dish it out better than any other character in the game.
* GlobalAirship: The Great Bird, and later [[spoiler:Township]].
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: The entire point of the [[spoiler:St. Eva]] scam.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Averted by Nina ([[PurpleIsTheNewBlack "black"]] bird wings) and Patty (dark bat wings). Played straight by various demons.
* GuideDangIt: Finding the guy who teaches Ryu's second-tier dragon spells isn't terribly obvious.
** Fittingly enough, the Prima Strategy Guide actually references this secret with the heading, "Why People Buy Strategy Guides".
* [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal Half-Dressed Petting Zoo People]]: [[CatGirl Katt]], [[BeastMan Tiga]] and [[SnakePeople Bleu / Deis]].
* HalfHumanHybrid: Ryu and his sister - their father is human, but their mother is of the Dragon Clan.
* HandInTheHole
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Sten fakes us out of one, then Nina gets robbed of hers by Mina. Just after you enter Evrai, the amount of sacrifices is considerably increased; Tiga and Ray go down for your sake, followed by Rand's attempt only for his mother to switch places with him, and Ganer is more than willing but it depends on you; some time later it's Valerie's turn so you can progress; and finally Ryu has two different situations: one in which everyone is willing but he must ''not'' sacrifice a friend, and the last one in the [[MultipleEndings normal ending]] where he takes up his mother's place.]]
* HolyCity: Evrai. You may [[FridgeHorror never want to leave!]]
* HopelessBossFight: The first battle with Barubary.
** Also, optionally, the duel with Tiga.
* HumanResources: There are several ancient machines powered by draining life energy. [[spoiler:One under Evrai, in which Ryu's father has been imprisoned, one in Highfort, which the princess must be rescued from, and one under the Township, which Ryu's father [[HeroicSacrifice insists on powering]] if you rescue him, allowing Township to fly.]]
* IHaveNoSon: Windia's royal family has disowned Nina. Her mother refuses to acknowledge they're even related. [[spoiler:They were supposed to kill Nina because of a prophecy about a black winged royal bringing destruction to Windia. Instead, they sent her to [=HomeTown=] when she was a little girl, and they faked her death to ensure that she would be safe]].
* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Mom]]: [[spoiler:The Church of St. Eva]], after Rand's mother refuses to donate her land.
* InevitableTournament: The contest in Coursair.
* InformedDeformity: It would make a lot more sense if Nina's black wings were actually... you know, black.
** To be fair, in the 8-Bit engine, if they really were black, they'd likely just look like a shadow following her. They could have made them greyscale, but it likely would have made her sprite look bland, so thusly...we have purple.
*** Also you meet Nina around the same time you meet Patty, it's likely the colour change was solely so you wouldn't mistake one for the other.
* ItsAllUpstairsFromHere: Witch Tower and Sky Tower.
* [[spoiler: ItsPersonal: Midway through the game, the Rangers Guild gets what their most veteran members declare an impossible task to slay a monster near the town of Gate, where Ryu and Bow first met. They quickly realize it's Barubary, the same monster that nearly killed them as children and [[JumpedAtTheCall take up the mission without a moment's hesitation]]. You can opt to ramp this trope's invocation UpToEleven in the final dungeon, by having Ryu take Barubary on ''solo.'' Revenge will ''never'' be sweeter.]]
* JapaneseRanguage: The cast lists at the end of the game is filled with blatant misromanizations of proper English words. Apparently, lumberjacks in in this game are called "ramberjacks".
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: The arc about entering Gandaroof's dreamworld.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The trope that sets the plot into action. Later, you get to meet the guy who fired the laser.
* LastOfHisKind: Katt thinks she's one, as she's not saw any other around. [[spoiler: Tiga later explains to her that there are very few of them scattered all over the world.]]
* LetsYouAndHimFight: When you enter [=CotLnd=], Tiga decides to fight Ryu because he thinks there's something going on between him and Katt.
* ListingTheFormsOfDegenerates: The [[FanTranslation fan retranslation]] has Father Halk delivering such a litany when describing "all of society's refuse" that the Church will nonetheless gladly take in. [[spoiler: [[ReligionOfEvil No doubt as fodder to summon]] [[EldritchAbomination their dark god.]]]]
* LongLostRelative: [[spoiler:Patty is actually Yua, Ryu's sister]]. This is barely alluded to, with only one quick line ("[[spoiler: I want my brother!"]]) despite being a central aspect of the TheDragon's plan, and is never followed up. See What Happened To The Mouse?
* LostInTranslation: Most of the {{Punny Name}}s and ThemeNaming.
** Also, Gandaroof should've been Romanized as Gandalf.
** The "A" in "A. Sludge" stand for "Atomic", which might explain [[spoiler: why most of the monsters in the island where you fight them are giant]].
* LostForever: Building up the [=TownShip=] community requires previous planning, as there are only 6 available houses, each one with their corresponding tenant. Since it only takes speaking to the tenant to make him/her join, it is quite easy to talk to the wrong {{NPC}} and have a house with an important one occupied forever.
** There's also the [[spoiler:Great Bird]], lost very close to the end, which also leaves Ryu's InfinityPlusOneSword out of reach.
* LostSuperweapon: [[spoiler:Highfort]]. Surprisingly for a JRPG, Shupkay ''fails'' to reactivate it.
* LoveTriangle: Trubo hates Sten for abandoning the Princess, who loves him. Made more complicated by the fact Trubo pines for the Princess, himself.
* MeaningfulName: [[FloatingContinent Township]].
** Father [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Manson]].
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:She's around, she's just not able to do much...]]
* MobileMenace: Teleportation is the ''only'' possible explanation for Habaruku serving as both leader of the St. Eva church ''and'' [[spoiler: priest of a tiny backwater village on another continent]]. For ten years.
* MultipleEndings: There's a bad ending [[spoiler:where everyone gets killed and the demons win]], a bittersweet ending [[spoiler:where the world is saved but Ryu sacrifices himself to seal the entrance to the underworld]], and the good ending, [[spoiler:where Ryu's sacrifice is averted by his father, who plummets Township onto the underworld's entrance, sealing it under thousands and thousands of tons of rock]]. You can only get the good one if you don't kill a certain person during a boss battle.
* [[MyCountryRightOrWrong My Religion, Right or Wrong]]: Ray knows that [[spoiler: the Church of St. Eva is bad]], but fights you anyway out of loyalty to his adopted father.
* {{Nerf}}: The original allowed you to stay in dragon form indefinitely after an initial outlay of AP. In this game, the dragon transformation is a [[SummonMagic one-off deal]], and it consumes all your AP with it. The damage the dragon forms deal also relies on how much AP Ryu has at the time of casting. Somewhat mitigated by the fact Ryu can cast the dragon forms multiple times if the player constantly replenishes his AP.
** Makes some sense in-series as Ryu is half-breed, unlike the other Ryu's in the series (he's the only one who isn't full Brood) thus his access to the dragon genes would be weakened (as is explained in-game. Inter-breeding with other clans can lead to loss of clan abilities and eventually leads to the future generations becoming Clanless - humans, that is. It's a well established piece of lore in the series and made clear when Nina has her little talk with an old friend...)
* NobleDemon: Barbaroi/Barubary. If Ryu decides to face him [[DuelBoss one-on-one]], he will praise him for his honor and courage. Win, and he'll give the location of a useful accessory.
* NobodyPoops: Averted. ''II'' is the only game in the series to include bathrooms in every house, and even two instances where the bathroom ''is the dungeon''.
* NoobCave: Mt. Fubi.
* OptionalPartyMember: Bleu/Deis is not necessary to finish the game. That said, she's an [[GameBreaker absolutely badass mage]] with a skill that recovers her HP for free and she likely starts several levels above your other characters, so it's probably wise to pick her up.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: The Dragon Tear.
** RelationshipValues: It also measures how close are the characters to Ryu. Subverted in that it barely has any impact in the storyline.
** It allows Ryu (and by extension, the player) to figure out the feelings of the person he's talking to, which can be useful to get some nice upgrades from a (very shy) recruitable NPC.
* PaperThinDisguise: The [[FakeKing fake Jean]] looks nothing like the real one. Subverted in that his subjects [[ApatheticCitizens don't really care]], thus the fake Jean can get away with being thinner and handsomer.
* ParentalBonus: Tied in neatly with GettingCrapPastTheRadar, above.
* PathOfInspiration: [[spoiler: The Church of St. Eva]]. Probably one of the earliest examples of a video game using a religious organization as an antagonist force.
* PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling: Monster Island.
** The area right near Sima Fort. Just Southeast of it, is a signpost. South of this signpost are orange crabs that are meant to be fought a bit later that will come out and they give far more XP than normal, and they all die very fast to Nina's S.Boom spell that she learns about the same time you get to this area.
* PlanetOfHats: Nobody speaks a word in Tunlan, instead communicating via flute music.
* PlotlineDeath: [[spoiler: Tiga and Claris.]]
* PowerUpFood: Biscuits (a fairly easy item to make) will permanently boost one character's stats by +1 per biscuit. If one doesn't mind grinding to get the proper ingredients, you can max out your party's stats, regardless of level, by the game's halfway point.
* PunnyName. Alzheimer (Aruhamel), Aspara Gus (Spar), Eichichi (chichi literally means "udders"), Land Marks (Rand) and Nympho Mani (Nimufu) were LostInTranslation. Algernon and Town Ship made it in, though.
** The FanTranslation preserves Eichichi's PunnyName by naming her Gigi Kupp.
* RequiredPartyMember: You need Sten to get to Highfort. And Katt to enter the Whale and [=CotLnd=].
* ReligionOfEvil: Played with [[spoiler: the Church of St. Eva]]. While it's secretly bad to the bone, it's believers (and many of it's puppet preachers) genuinely believe it's so good and noble as they were told.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: It doesn't matter if you think you're God: [[spoiler: If you kill his friends in front of him, Ryu ''will'' bring you down no matter how many explosions you throw at him.]]
* SaintlyChurch: The Dragon Clan and their religious beliefs. There's something very Literature/BookOfRevelation-y about the story, with the people ignoring the benevolent deity and [[spoiler:worshiping a demon who poses as one]].
* ShoutOut: The tenants are full of these: the fortuneteller is named after Creator/WhoopiGoldberg, the old guy Barose/Burroughs from the dreamworld is named after a character from ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare'', artist Salvador is named after Creator/SalvadorDali, etc...
** Kilgore Trout is a fictional character created by Kurt Vonnegut of Slaughterhouse Five fame. Kilgore and Trout are the feuding rich folks in [=HomeTown=].
** The Gargoyle enemy sprite bears a striking resemblance to [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Firebrand]].
** The infamous ThatOneBoss of this game seems to be named after ''Literature/FlowersForAlgernon''. The English fan translation takes this a step further by using anagrams of the author's name (Daniel Keyes) for the flunkies' names.
* ShoutOutThemeNaming: Elforan and Gedd are named after ''Literature/EarthseaTrilogy'' characters.
** Resistance members such as Tiga (Tigger) and Daisy (Daisy Duck) are named after Disney characters.
** All the bouncers on Wildcat's Cafe have their names given in the CreativeClosingCredits. They are all characters from {{Capcom}}'s WrestlingGame ''VideoGame/SaturdayNightSlammasters''.
* StormingTheCastle: The Grand Church of Evrai.
* TakeAThirdOption
** One happens as a SecretTestOfCharacter. To obtain the ultimate power of Anfini, Ryu is told he must sacrifice one of his party members. [[spoiler: The correct choice is to refuse to sacrifice any of them.]]
** Another happens in the best ending. [[spoiler: Ryu is told that [[BigBad Deathevan]] [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil may return]], so he prepares to sacrifice himself by using his dragon form to seal the entrance to the underworld just as his mother did (which is what happens in the bitterweet ending). Then Ryu's father shows up, flying [[FloatingContinent Township]] overhead, which he [[ColonyDrop drops onto the gate]], burying it completely.]]
* ThemeNaming: All the tenants who sells weapons are named after gun manufacturers (Heckler, Beretta, Kalashnikov, Remington). [[BlindIdiotTranslation Obviously, the translator never figured this out...]]
* TournamentArc: Coursair's battle tournament. Subverted by Augus, the crooked manager, into a BloodSport.
* TownWithADarkSecret: Several locales in this game use this trope with Evrai being the most prominent example.
* TraumaCongaLine: Sets the record for sheer number of Trauma Conga Lines in a single game in the franchise, damn near being a Trauma Conga Limbo Party in and of itself with most of the cast.
* UnderTheSea: The Upa Caves.
* UndergroundLevel: The Dry Well of Capitan.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Ryu and Patty's parents. Their mom is a hot young winged woman who can turn into a gigantic dragon and their dad, while not necessarily ugly, is a normal old human.
** YMMV, so judge for yourself: [[http://images.wikia.com/bof/images/2/2e/958876-bof2_ganer_super.jpg Ganer official artwork]] / [[http://images.wikia.com/bof/images/4/4b/Valerie.jpg Valerie official artwork]]
* TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon: Infinity.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Augus. He gets two turns every round, and one of his actions is to charge up his next attack to do extra damage. Charging up then attacking in the same round will [[OneHitKill one-shot]] Katt even at full health (and Ryu and Rand if they're not pretty close to full health). Oh, and he can heal himself.
** Also Terrapin, found in the dried up well in Capitan. One of the harder bosses of the game if you're underleveled.
** And let's not forget Algernon and her friends who... well, let's say she's been known to put a stop to progression for many people.
* WarmupBoss: The [[GiantMook giant Roach]].
* WellDoneSonGuy: Averted when Rand's mother [[spoiler: sacrifices herself to save him]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After Patty ([[spoiler: who is really Yua, Ryu's long-lost sister]]) serves her purpose in the plot, close to the end game, she is unceremoniously thrown in the tall grass and ''never seen again''.
* WhereItAllBegan: [[spoiler: Ryu's hometown Gate is where the final dungeon is located]].
* [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude Who Names Their Kid "Baba(del)"?]]: Ryu gets a lot of flak for his alias.
* WiseTree: Gandaroof the Great Wise Tree. There are also several "minor" trees around the world.
* WombLevel: Grampa the Whale and the Queen of Tunlan.
* WrenchWench: Eichichi ([[FanTranslation a.k.a. Gigi]]). Has massive breasts and finds machines… stimulating. Probably would be MsFanservice, too, if the sprites in this game were large and detailed enough.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain
