Fishing is a recurring minigame in the Breath of Fire series. If completed successfully, it results in fish which the player can use to a variety of effects, or sell for relatively easy money. In Breath of Fire II, III and IV, attempting to fish also leads to the discovery of Manillo Shops, where the party can obtain early access to powerful or unique items.

Breath of Fire[]

In Breath of Fire, fishing is not so much a "system" as random chance. If Ryu has a rod and bait equipped, he can interact with a fishing spot. There will be an outcome (presumably depending on the equipped rod and bait, and the fishing spot) which is typically either the fish getting away or Ryu catches a fish.

In some special cases Ryu finds an item. In particular, with Rod5 Ryu becomes able to fish in wells, and find unique equipment like the DragonSD.

Where do you find the spots to fish with rod1? Nobody knows.

The fishing system in the game has an infamous translation issue in which there is a menu option titled "Equip lod/bait."

Gobi swims in fishing spots sometimes, he'll make one pass and he's gone.

  • TreeRod: 6-12 pulls of durability for sardine / unagi, high snap rate on fish jumps.
  • Northeast of Coursair, Unagi and Sardine. Gobi was seen swimming past these waters at night.

Breath of Fire III[]

The Fishing system for Breath of Fire III consists of Fishing Spots which can be entered from the overworld map. They are indicated by a leaping fish. When standing on a Fishing Spot, Fishing Spot within a speech bubble is displayed. Pressing the Guide button will list the catchable fish for the current spot.

Most fish can be used as items; their effects vary from healing HP and AP to magical attacks. They can also be used to trade with the Manillo Fish Merchant for rare equipment and items.
