Credits referencesEdit

Breath of Fire II features an unique list of credits which, rather than listing the game's production staff, instead provides names for pretty much every character in the game, from main and important characters to the many NPC roaming the towns. Most interestingly, the names used are actually references to several Western people such as writers, singers, etc. This section atempts to list all the recognized references featured in the credits, although it is still incomplete.

Note the ending credits are the same for both English and Japanese version, and so "Ryu Bateson" is not JP-exclusive as its commonly believed (in fact, only Tapeta/Jean's full-name is given in-game, all others are only found here).
