Recover health and APSent in by Chris Adams When in the town with the coliseum go to the bar in the day. Talk to the barkeep and say yes to kill time while waiting for night to fall. When night comes, your health and AP will be recovered.
Beat the machine at the churchSent in by Adam Norfleet The easiest way to beat the machine at the church without destroying the old man is this: Bring along the Hero (of course), Bleu, Rand, and Nina. Be sure to bring along plenty of Wfruits to restore the Hero's magic points. You should focus all of your strength against the healing eye at first. Have Bleu cast Attack up on the hero, the hero should use a dragon puppy spell and regular attacks when his AP is used up. Bleu's main attack be strong individual attacks like Freeze. Have Rand heal the group accordingly and also have Nina attack with her strongest spell. The second eye you should defeat should be the one that casts flame, then the one that casts freeze.
Get 2 antidote for 1GSent in by Landon Once you are able to enter your "dressing room" in the Coliseum in Coursair, go in and get the 1000G in the treasure chest. Do not enter through the top door yet! Leave the coliseum, go to the bank, and deposit all of your money into the bank except for 1G. When you go back to the coliseum and go through the top door, Rand will ask you to give him all the money you have to get 2 antidote. You will then give him all your money...1G!
RecipesSent in by Norfleet If you have the cooking carpenter at Hometown, here are some recipes you can use to create items that permanently raise your status. GutsBL: 2 Shaveice increase in Guts Dinker: 2 Frizbee increase in Agility LuckCandy: F.Spice + Shaveice increase in Luck Stamina: 2Tuna + F.Spice increase in Stamina MisSoup: 2F.Spice increase in wisdom Pwrfood: 3Shaveice increase in Strength Most of these items needed to make the power-ups are found at the item shop in Guntz. You can buy the fish from Daiye, if you have invited him to Township. If you haven't, I believe he is in one of the shops at Windia.

Trouts house tipSent in by Norfleet When Bow is asked to go into Trouts house for a second time, you should always take Ryu along with you. This way the enemies will be easier to kill and you will gain levels quicker.
Charm tipSent in by Norfleet at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! One of the most useful Items you can equip in the Etc. section on your character screen is the charm. The charm protects you from sleep, poison, zombie, and curses. (Or anything else that gives you bad status) To get these items, you can either fight the Chorkings on the northernmost island on the map or I believe you can buy them from Hanz once you invite him to Township. He is in the building next to yours in Hometown.
Nine Tail WhipSent in by Norfleet To obtain Spars most powerful weapon the, Nine Tail Whip, go to the bottom of the screen in the room before the final boss. In this small room will be a teleporter. Don't go in it. Instead walk around and continue to fight enemies called Zodiacs. I advise you to take the shamanized form of Sten so he can use his "Sway" ability. The Zodiacs are very difficult to beat, so make sure you have a healer in your party. This will take a while, but if you are lucky you will earn the Nine Tail Whip from these monsters. It took me 75 Zodiacs to obtain this weapon, and it doesn't seem worth it. But if you have to have the best this is the way. The Zodiacs also drop Army Gloves too sometimes.
BarrettaSent in by Norfleet Whatever you do, be sure to get Barretta to fill house number 3 in Township. She can be found in the armory at Windia. When you first get her, her equipment stinks horribly but her inventory gets better as you progress on your journey. Near the end of the game, she will have the best weapons, for Bow, and Rand:The Death Bow and the Kaiser Knuckle.
Blue tipSent in by Norfleet After you find Blue and have built her strength up, you should put her in the front of whatever battle setup you have. This tip is useful because whoever is in the front of the party takes the most hits, and whenever Blue's HP gets low you can always use her shed ability. This preserve a little of the other party members HP.
Fighting CoursairSent in by Adam Norfleet at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! When you first find the Fireball item inside Fuji mountains, don't use it until you get to Coursair. Trust me, it will help you defeat the boss demon there. If you already used it, the battle will be extremely hard.
How to make a ton of money and powerfoodsSent in by Logan Hudson Get the Carpenter who builds the normal houses and the guy who starts the item shop. Buy Condup. from the Item shop and cook 3 to get Gold Bar which can be sold to get 6000 gp. Doubling what you spent on the 3 Condup.s. And now amass a small fortune (at least 100,000 gp.) and buy medicates Cook two medicates to get a power food. Repeat until all characters have 255 strength.
Shaman combinationsSent in by Shadow Bow: Holy + Devil = Rocket Dog Special: Spray. Bow attacks all enemies. Nina: Holy + Wind = Angel Queen Special: Banish. Nina attempts to make the enemies to run away (works 95% of the time). Katt: Devil + Fire = Ninja Girl Special: Keep. Katt 'keeps' her energy and pays it back double next round. Rand: Earth + Water = Earth Critter Special: Still Wake. Sten: Fire + Wind = Efreeti Special: Sweh. Sten changes the enemies. Jean: Holy + Water = Paladin Special: Chop. Jean doesn't do anything during the first round and then, if he succeeds, he will deal 999 damage to all enemies. Spar: Water + Wind = Sprite Special: Spore. Spar tries to put the enemy to sleep. Earth + Water = Bud Special: Bud. Spar will go berserk. Devii + Fire = Snap Dragon Special: Still Nature.
Where do you find the Life Armor?Sent in by Mog First you have to fish for it near Monster Island. Monster Island is a northern island with huge versions of GongHead, those green slimes, and the TsiFly. There's a fishing spot in the north part of the island, and the Life Armor should be there. It might take a few tries before you get it, I suggest using the Urchin bait. You can only reach Monster Island with the whale, the Great Bird (Mina), or the flying Township.
Fighting the A.SludgeSent in by Paul Owen When fighting the A.Sludge on Giant Island, a very easy way to defeat him is to cast the Death spell on him. It is guaranteed to work every single time!
Lots of experienceSent in by Karl Rollmann Go to the Island that has the really good but expensive weapon shop. Fight or use Sten's Swch ability until you find an enemy that is like the other skeletons riding horses but these are purple. If you manage to kill them you get a huge amount of experience.
Get the Love BR before you go fight BarubarySent in by Steven You can get the Love BR before you go fight Barubary. All you need to do is go fishing off of the northern section of Giant island. Get the treasure box and it is in there. Also for those of you who are wondering what the Skull BR does listen up. All it does is raise the chance of a successful death spell.
Many faces of SparSent in by James Repchull 1) With the Devil Shaman, Spar will look all wilted and gain piles of MP 2) With the Water Shaman, Spar will turn into a cute girl who can put the enemies to sleep, if there's not a backwind, then your team will be put to sleep. 3) With the Earth Shaman, Spar will become a rosebud, that is a rather good attacker, and can Bud to be even stronger, but berserk. 4) With Fire and Devil, Spar will become a dragon! This form is strong and has high MP, and can use Nature. When forming a team, make sure the Shamans don't conflict. For example: Both Sten and Nina use the Wind Shaman, so they can't be used together for maximum effect. Here's a good example (and the team I recommend) 1) Hero: he doesn't use and Shamans, so he's safe. 2) Sten: Fire and Air. He can Switch enemies, turning a hand encounter into an easy one, and he often moves first. 3) Bow: Holy and Devil. What team is complete without a healer. When he's morphed, he can hit all the enemies, and kill hunted animals easier. 4) Spar: Water or Earth. He has magic and high HP. Get the girl who wants to be a nurse in the town. She will make you immune to poison for a while, and boosters are rarely needed. Also, the girl in Windia who wants to be a shopkeeper will get better items from time to time. Other sellers are just leeches who aren't useful once their weapons are outdated.
Beginning of the game tipSent in by Mike at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! After you receive the Suzy quest in the beginning of the game, get the LifePl from the shelf to the right of the Rangers Guild master and go sell it in the items shop. Buy the fishing rod with the money, and as many worms as you can. Go out next to the town and walk around until you get into a fight. Keep doing this, and you will eventually get a fishing spot on the left coast. Fish in this spot until you have caught all the fish or used all your worms. Go back into town, and you can sell groups of 9 Unagi or Sardines for 270 gold! You can keep doing this for however long you want to and can build up a small starting fortune. Also, once you have gotten to around level 10 or so, you can keep going to the spot and selling the Sardines, but keep the Unagi! They will heal all of your HP's, and you can sell roasts for the difference! I have used this method and saved tons of gold on herbs and Helpballs, and you can get some more money from the Sardines as you collect the Unagi!
Buster SwordSent in by JCFan If you defeat the Uparapa it will give you the option to let it go. If you do so, the Uparapa will give you a treasure chest with the Buster Sword in it. You can then go back to the boss and tell him that you'll give him nothing. You'll end up fighting him. But, then again, you'll end up fighting him no matter what you do.
Bow tipSent in by JCFan Bow is the only character which can be joined with two Shamans of opposing elements, the Holy Nad Devil Shamans, this will turn him into a huge robot. And, arguably, the toughest character in the game.
FlySent in by Cecil When you fight Ganer, don't kill him, kill the other things. Then go to Guntz at the top house. Go behind the shelves and talk to the person. Say machine. She will go to your town. Go Into the well and talk to the person. Ganer will come in and you're town will fly and land anywhere but water, cliffs, trees towns and signs.
K.SludgeSent in by Lewis 1. On giant island you can find the rare enemy K.Sludge. Except for the enormous amount of exp. - points you receive if you defeat them (in fact the biggest amount in the game) you can also get: 1.) SacredSH 2.) Army Glove Bring the Djinni along and use "Svea" to find them, it might take a while though.
Meow StaffSent in by Lewis You can receive the Meow Staff after defeating the enemy Carm, who only appears after you`ve past the gate in the Dragon Town.
Earn a GoldbarSent in by Carlo at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! After you build Township and have the whale, swim to Guntz and buy 3 of the following: Fspice, ShaveIce and Frizbee. Then go to Township and cook them, you should get 3x LuckCndy. Cook the three LuckCndys and you will earn a Goldbar!
Empire swordSent in by Lewis To get the Empire sword, you have to fish in the mountains east of you own town. It is close to the village, but to get to the right place you have to be able to fly with Mina.
Life ArmorSent in by Lewis To get the Life Armor, go fishing on the Gateisland. On the right fishing spot you will find a chest containing the Life Armor, which is even stronger than the Dragon Armor.
Lots of experience pointsSent in by Lewis Take the party to the island east of The Grand Church. Walk around until you walk into a battle. If you have Sten (in shape of the Djinni) in the party, use "svea" untill you are facing a rare enemy: The Nrider. If you succeed to defeat two of them you will get at least 40,000 exp. (if all the party members are conscience) and 6,000 coins. If you are really lucky you can also receive either the No twin rapier or the Medusa shield.
Get the dragon powers of Firedrgn, Icedrgn, and ThunderdrgnSent in by Landon Once you get Jean, go back up to the witch's tower. Have Jean in the lead, then go west of the tower. You should come across a pond with a waterfall at the bottom. With jean in the lead, use his frog power to jump into the water. Now, go down the waterfall. You will find a secret cave with a man and several treasures. If you talk to the man, he will give you the dragon powers of Firedrgn, Icedrgn, and Thunderdrgn!!!
Get 200 GPSent in by Nicholas Walker This has to be done with a hunter, like Bow or Katt. When you see the wind blowing on some grass, walk up to it and press A. Now choose to any of your hunters. Start shooting an animal until it's dead and take the Roast. Watch out for bears and Gongheads. Go to a town and sell it. You'll receive 200 GP!
CharcoalSent in by Nicholas Walker If you kill an animal with Bleu you'll receive Charcoal. Take two charcoals to the cook in your created town. You'll receive an Herb.
Make money with the Gold BarSent in by Brian at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Get the carpenter that cooks things. Then get Hanz to come and start an item shop. At his shop buy 4 Cond. Up's. Now go and cook all four of the Cond. Up's. Most of the time you get a Gold Bar! This is a great way to make money because 4 Cond. Up's, only cost 4000 and you can sell a Gold Bar for 6000!!
GobiSent in by Excerion@aol.com At a certain spot on the map (I forget exactly where), if you fish, You'll see Gobi from Breath of Fire 1 swimming along. Gobi's so greedy, if you fish with gold as the bait, you'll catch him!!! When you catch him, he'll sell you things like the Firerock.
Get items while huntingSent in by Frank There are 3 different items you can get while hunting. If you kill a land animal, you get a roast. Roasts completely refill your HP. If you kill a bird, you get an egg. An egg has the same effect as a LifeP1. If you kill the bears that sometimes appear, you get a SpareRib. Spare Ribs are just like roasts. (Bears take 9-10 hits to kill, and if you run into it, you get into a battle with it.) I'm not sure about what you get from a beak though, those also appear sometimes.
Get lots of coinsSent in by Scott Lowry Go to Coursair and give all your money to the bank then go to the church and try to give a offering. The preacher will give you 10 coins! Repeat this 9 more times. You now have 100 coins! Put it in the bank and repeat this as many times as you would like to.
Best endingSent in by Mike at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! To get the best ending, go into the well in your town and look at the machine. Then go to Guntz and walk to the house at the top and walk behind the last bookcase. Talk to Eichichi there and bring her to the machine. If you saved your father, township can fly.
BleuAfter you get Grandpa the whale, got to the desert in the southeast corner of the map. Get on the beach and look for an almost invisible circle in the sand. If you find it you will find ghosts that say "Bleu is not here right now" or something like that. After you've talked to one, got to the Magic School in hometown. Go to the left classroom on the 2nd floor, and talk to all of the girls on the row closest to the door. One of them will reveal themselves as Bleu. She (forcefully) joins the group. She starts at Level 35 and start with the following spells: S.Boom, Flame, Death, Pwr-Down, Ag-Up, Atk-Up, Drain, Warp, Bomb, Freeze, Ag-Down, Def-down, Def-Up, Sap, and Exit. She gets Fireball at level 36, Hail at level 37, Missile at level 38, and Bolt X at Level 39. Her special ability is Shed. This allows her to totally regenerate her HP an unlimited number of times, and it also will cure any ailments (i.e. poison, curse, etc.). In addition, she's as fast as Katt!
Infinite coinsTo get infinite coins, store all the coins in your possession in a bank. Then, go to a church of St. Eva. Select "donation." Since you have no money, the priest will give you ten gold coins. Store these in the bank. Go back to the church and repeat these steps again. It requires a lot of patience, but you can get as many coins as you want.
How do you get different endings?There are three possible endings in Breath of Fire. When you're at the Gate at the end of the game, your mother (the big white dragon) will ask you if you want to go on and destroy the demon, or just leave things alone. If you choose to just leave things alone, you will get the worst ending. If you choose to go on and destroy the demon, but don't rescue your father, you'll get an average ending. If you choose to go on and destroy the demon and rescue your father to make your town fly, you will get the best ending possible.
What are the locations of the Shamans?There are six different Shamans you can find in the game: Sana, the Fire Shaman, is found in the town of Capitan. Seso, the Water Shaman, is found in the Witch's Tower. Spoo, the Wind Shaman, is found in the SkyTower. Solo, the Earth Shaman, is at FarmTown. Seny, the Holy Shaman, will be found at Bando. Shin, the Devil Shaman, is found in Infinity.
How do you join with the Shamans?First, you must locate the different Shamans throughout the game. Once you've found them, go to Granny's House at TownShip. They'll show you how to join your characters with the different Shamans here. Depending upon who you combine with, your character's abilities and appearance can change. You can only have one character in your party combined with a Shaman at a time. You can combine up to two different Shamans with a character at once. Experimentation is the key to finding the coolest combinations!
What are the bushes and fish on the overworld screen for?If you enter the bushes on the overworld, you can hunt by putting Bow or Katt in front of your party and pressing the Y Button. If you defeat a land animal, you will earn a Roast, and if you defeat a bird, you will earn an Egg. Both items will completely refill a character's hit points. The areas on the overworld with fish are places you can go fishing for items. To fish, equip a fishing pole and some bait on your hero, then face the fish and press the Y Button. Try using different bait, or even gold, to see what you can catch.
I'm at Bleu's hideout -- where's Bleu?Once you have made it to Bleu's Desert Hideout, journey back to the village of HomeTown. You will find Bleu on the second floor of the Magic School in the middle of the town.
What is that silly little purple guy at the top of the subscreen for?The little, purple, onion-like guy at the top of the subscreen shows you what the enemy activity is in the area. If the little creature is sleeping, you won't run into any enemies. If it is dancing around, it means you will run into random encounters. The faster he dances, the larger the quantity and strength of the enemies in the area.
Gain money quicklyTo gain money quickly right after the prologue and while Bow is still in your party, go hunting. A Roast sells for 200 Z, which is about 30 times what you can expect to win in a typical battle. You can also get 350 Z right off the bat by searching your room for 100C and taking the LifePl at the ranger's guild.
Catch Maniro and get lots of equipmentWhen you find the Gold in TagWoods, there's a nice fishspot northeast of Coursair where you can catch Maniro and get lots of equipment. But be sure to bring a lot of money! (about 4000 Z is as much as you'll probably need - see above paragraph for how to obtain this much money quickly).
Treasure chest in Katt's roomIn the Coliseum, the treasure chest in Katt's room CAN be reached (Open the door to Katt's locker room before entering your own locker room, don't try to take the treasure, then come back for it later.), but since this treasure chest is a fake, don't bother.
Keep your money away from RandWhile you're in the coliseum, if you want to be able to keep that 1000 Z payment without giving it to Rand, remember that Rand only enters the room when you try to open the door to the arena. So, try to open the door first and then open the chest. You may also want to put your party money supply in the bank if you don't want Rand to take that either
WildCat restaurantAt the WildCat restaurant to can either learn Chopchop or get your mHP raised. Before entering this place, all inventories and equipment lists are saved, and restored upon exit or death. In WildCat, you must pass through a series of checkpoints. At each checkpoint, you may choose to either obeys the rules posted there, or disobey and fight your way past a Bouncer. At the end of the trip, you'll meet Mr.Wildcat himself. Just before this you will be asked how you want your food prepared: Rare - all party members take [rHP/4] pts of damage Medium - [rHP/2] points of damage to all Well Done - [3/4*rHP] points of damage to all if you do not choose, all party members are reduced to 1 HP (!) the following things affect Wildcat's mood: he begins with a mood of 120 for each rule: disobeyed -8 obeyed0 After battling Wildcat, he asks you the following questions: answer / effect --------------------------------------------- 1: 'Are you mad...?' Yes -8 goto 2 No +4 goto 3 2: 'Will you forgive me'Yes 0 goto 5 No -4 goto 4 3: 'You are soft-hearted aren't you?' Yes +4 end No -4 goto 4 4: 'Please forgive me, will you?'Yes 0 goto 5 No -2 goto 6 5: 'You won't take that back...?'Yes +4 end No -2 goto 6 6: 'Do you forgive me?'Yes +4 end No -2 goto 6 At the end of it all, you will receive an award depending of Wildcat's mood: mood = 112 (yellow or better) he will teach one party member Chopchop mood =112 (orangish-yellow or worse) he raises the mHP of all party members by 16 points
Hidden moneyIn the top room of the bucket rides at SimaFort, there's a lot of hidden cash: 3000 Z, in fact. From the spot where the filled buckets rise through, search (0,-3), (-1,-3), and (-2,-3) from this spot (these spots are along the embankment).
Carnival tipAt the carnival when you are asked to either supply 900k Z, or an Uparupa, you CAN pay the 900kZ, if you have it, but to collect this much money is a colossal waste of effort. You will end up fighting the ringleader anyway, and you will be out 900,000 coins.
Gain experience and gold quickly after you have the whaleTo gain experience and gold quickly after you have the whale, visit the island of giants (northwest of Windia). There are three enemies you are likely to encounter: Gonghead (2), A.Sludge, and Chorking. Chorking is easy is you use items which cast damage-dealing spells, since full immunity does not apply in this case. These items can be bought in Guntz. Or, if you have the Chopchop attack, use that instead. The other two can be defeated after a lot of hacking and slashing. Heavy magic-users might want to Hush or cast damage dealing spells on A.Sludge to speed up the process. A.Sludges are nice in that they can be Drained for lots of AP when your magic users are running low.
Fighting K.SludgesIn the unlikely event that you encounter K.Sludges, you're probably toast, unless you have the G.Drgn spell. They have armor and mHP like a tank, are faster than a speeding bullet, and like to cast Death (and when they cast Death, it always works). In such a battle, running is probably not going to be effective. Your best bet is to pile all the spell damage you can into them - if you win you'll obtain an astronomical reward. With all that money you'll be winning, you'll be able to buy things at the armory in Guntz immediately. This stuff is the best that can be found until about the FarmTown scenario. And after you reach FarmTown, you'll be able to buy some MedusaSHs with all that money you saved up!
MedusaSHThe MedusaSH is probably the most useful shield there is: it casts Atk-Up (very nice), and is the strongest in terms of power. The MedusaSH can be bought from Maniro on an island Fishspot. Getting to this island does not require the ability to fly - as soon as you can get to Farmtown, you can reach it - just bring along Jean and hop across the islands. If you're having trouble triggering this Fishspot, remember that you need to enter a battle from the same map section where the Fishspot is - refer to the map for details. And, of course, you'll need to bring along a LOT of coins. A MedusaSH costs 50k, and you'll probably want as many of them as there are party members who can equip them.
BoombadaBoombada can be very difficult to obtain. You will be asked to play accompaniment to a bell melody with a drum (button A), and a tuning fork (button B). The melody is 8 beats to a measure, 4 measures long: - - --_ _ _____ _-_-_- ................................ The accompaniment you must play to this is: -A-B-- A_B_A__ B___B_-AB_-_-A A ................................ If you manage to hit all the notes somewhere close to where they should be, and don't play any extraneous notes, then you got it.
EmpireSDThe EmpireSD is by far the strongest weapon. You can reach it as soon as you can fly, but you'll need the CharmRod to have any luck fishing it out. Don't forget to get it, because when you no longer have the ability to fly the great bird, this Fishspot is off limits - TownShip can't get there (by the way, this is the only location that the great bird can get to which TownShip can't).
WindiaFt treasure roomThere is a treasure room in WindiaFt that can be difficult to get to. After you have the great bird, return and the door will be unlocked.
Death spellDeath is a wonderful spell. For creatures of magic susceptibility of 3 or 4, it's a guaranteed kill. For 0 or higher, it still has a pretty good chance of success. The WorthRG casts Death, and you may buy as many of these as you like from Maniro, as soon as you can fly. Since anyone can use items which cast spells, I suggest buying 2 or 3 of them and having them readily available for use when fighting magic susceptible creatures. Just remember that Death does not work at all in battles to the death, or against spirit and undead creatures.
Fighting GanetIf you find the Ganet creature annoying, there's a simple way to defeat it. Even though it has full immunity, this ability is not effective against damage from items that cast spells, such as F.Spice, EmpireSD, StormRG, Shaker, etc... And, any spell damage is more than enough to kill a Ganet.
LifeBRYou can only get it after defeating Barubary, but even so it is worth the effort. Barubary will challenge the hero to fight alone. If you accept and win, you will get a hint as to where it is, but not how to reach it. You'll need to bring along Katt and Sten for their special skills - it is in the same room in which you defeat Barubary. The LifeBR is the only item which prevents Death. As an added bonus, it also gives the wearer regeneration. Defeating Barubary alone is not necessary to find this treasure, as Barubary only gives a hint as to its location.
