Giotto is a non-playable character that appears in Breath of Fire III. He is a master fisherman who has isolated himself west of the fishing spot southwest of Mt. Zublo and is one of the masters that player characters can apprentice themselves under.

Role in Breath of Fire III[]

Giotto has no narrative role in Breath of Fire III but can be recruited as a Master if the player has a high enough fishing rank.

As a Master[]

Giotto becomes available as a master once you become a Rodmaster, which is achieved at 2,000 fishing points. Giotto emphasizes massive gains in HP and AP with significant detriments in all other stats. Due to these stat penalties he is an unforgiving master and not ideal for most characters but he can help buff up Ryu's dragon forms or Peco's breath attacks. The skills he teaches are also difficult to use. Berserk and Sudden Death have the potential to knock out members of your party, and Trump has the unlikely requirement that the caster has 0 AP, and the effect has little payoff. Most players tend to obtain his skills for the sake of completion and then drop him immediately afterward.

While Berserk can be dangerous, its negative effects can be mitigated by using the Influence skill.

Many of the late-game masters have massive detriments to HP and AP (especially Deis with -3 HP/Def and Ladon with -6 HP/AP) so Giotto can be powerful for building up the HP/AP levels in the mid-game to prepare the party for these big losses. In particular Ryu benefits from both Ladon's and Deis' skill bonuses, so Giotto and Ryu can be a good match when the party first crosses the Checkpoint. It ultimately comes down to player preference.
