Bunyan is a character within Breath of Fire II, Breath of Fire III, and Breath of Fire IV. He is a woodsman who, throughout Breath of Fire II and Breath of Fire III, lived a life of solitude in the woods. His circumstances are almost paralleled in Breath of Fire IV bar the fact he now resides in the mountains.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Breath of Fire II[edit | edit source]

Main article: Baba 

Bunyan (known as Baba at the time), is a woodsman living in "TagWoods". He is a fighter and was meant to participate in the tournament at the coliseum in Coursair. He was defeated by Ryu and as a result, allowed him to enter the tournament in his stead.

Breath of Fire III[edit | edit source]

Main article: Bunyan (Breath of Fire III)

Ryu, Rei, and Teepo attempt to rob Bunyan but he catches them and holds them prisoner. Bunyan agrees to let them all go if Rei heads to Mt. Glaus to defeat the Nue. He has Ryu and Teepo stay behind to work for him by chopping wood. After completing their task, Ryu and Teepo are released, and follow Rei to Mt. Glaus. After the party is defeated by Balio and Sunder, Bunyan finds Ryu in the woods and nurses him back to health. Afterwards, Bunyan becomes a Master.

Breath of Fire IV[edit | edit source]

Main article: Bunyan (Breath of Fire IV)

Bunyan discovers Fou-Lu injured in the woods after his confrontation with Yohm. He cares for Fou-Lu until he regains his strength. Bunyan is once again available as a master in the game. You must have all of the other masters completed before he will become yours.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Bunyan seems to be named after the legendary Paul Bunyan.
  • Bunyan (as Baba) appears in Katt's prologue scene at the title screen, actually doing battle with her in the tournament.
