Mute, also known as Hush and Silence, is a recurring status effect that appears throughout the Breath of Fire series.


A target affected by mute is prevented from using spells or skills. The status effect is caused by the Hush spell in Breath of Fire and Breath of Fire II, and by the SIlence skill in Breath of Fire III and Breath of Fire IV. The game data of Breath of Fire also contains the spell, Silent which is identical to that game's version of mute, however, the spell is unused and never appears during gameplay.
