Breath Of Fire 3

In-game reset:
Hold Start + Select during game play.
Information in this section was contributed by wilpeter lao.

Hint: More fairies:
Get the Fairie Taria from the three Fairies after you fix the lighthouse. To get more Fairies, place them in the hunting section. Note: For this to work you have to go there after you are older (when Garland tried to kill you, and you disappeared).
Information in this section was contributed by Sephiroth.

Hint: Faster results at the fairy village:
Set up the way that you prefer. Leave the village and fight to accumulate battles (about thirty). Then, return and check the message board to view the results.
Information in this section was contributed by Alton Do and Carmine Mangione.

Hint: Fast party attack:
Get Bais (one of the kids in Wyndia) as a Master after you are grown up and learn his chain formation. Then, put Reis in the number one position and use the chain formation. Everyone in you party will almost always go before the enemy and you will get large amounts of EX attacks.
Information in this section was contributed by VelcroDAP79.

Hint: Beyd: Train easily:
Learn Back Hand From Durandal and use it repeatedly. This will eventually cause him to defend. Keep using Back Hand, as it will not kill him and his defense will increase. Do this for about three nights then put your hardest hitters in the group with no armor and use something on Beyd to increase his attack and fight. Even Garr will have toublle hurting him. He can now fight Zig without any help.
Information in this section was contributed by Daniel Lane.

Hint: Peco: Learn spells quickly:
Do not use Peco in combat until you get Deis as one of the Masters you can study under. Have Peco (at level one because you have not used him yet) study under Deis. Leave the Cave Of Ages where Deis is located and go outside to get level ups, which will go fast for Peco. At levels 3, 6, 9, 12, and 16, return and Deis will teach Peco Inferno, Blizzard, Myollnir, Sirocco, and Celerity. It is easiest to do this with Peco because you never have to use him in combat for the storyline. Make sure that you have saved a Skill Ink so you can give Peco's new spells to a good wizard such as Nina or Momo.

Hint: Unlimited Life Shards:
Life Shards can increase your HP. To obtain more, get Rei in your party and fight a Gootitan. Use Rei's Pilfer until a Life Shard is obtained. Then, repeat to collect as many shards as desired.
Information in this section was contributed by Alton Do.

Hint: Unlimited Magic Shards:
To obtain more, get Rei in your party and fight a Revenant. Use Rei's Pilfer until a Magic Shard is obtained. Then, repeat to collect as many shards as desired.
Information in this section was contributed by MeltEmDown.

Hint: Easy items:
Make sure that Nina is in your party. Put her first so that you are moving her around and not Ryu. Go to the tower where you found Momo. When you enter you should see four small crystals in the front of the tower surrounding a chest in water. Go inside and you should see a much larger crystal. Go up to it and use Nina's magic (Triangle) and the crystal should light up. You now have a short amount of time to get back outside. You cannot use the way you came in because there of a laser. Use the following route. Note: No monsters will attack at this point, so run by holding Circle. Go up the stairs in the top left. Go down the passage and out the first door. Go down any stairway, as they all lead to the bottom. Once you are back down use Nina's magic to light up all four crystals before time runs out. If done correctly, the water will go down and you can go back inside to get the chest. You have thirty seconds to complete the challenge. If you complete it with less than 5.00 seconds remaining the chest will contain a MultiVitamin. If you complete it with between 5.00 to 5.99 seconds remaining the chest will contain a Wisdom Fruit. If you complete it with 6.00 seconds or more remaining the chest will contain a Ring Of Ice. Once you have looted the chest, go back out of the tower and on to the main map (where it is just Ryu). Go back inside the tower. Repeat this as many times as desired to get as many items as needed.

Hint: Challenging battle:
Get all characters over level 45 and walk in the container yard where they can fight Archmages and Berserkers. Equip Thunder Rings and Soul Gems against Archmages and Fire Rings and Soul Gems for Berserkers. Berzerkers are worth 10,000 EXP and Archmages are worth 16,000 EXP.
Information in this section was contributed by MeltEmDown.

Hint: GooKing sword:
A GooKing sword can be found at Eden, where Teepo awaits you, and in the area before that. You need Rei to enter through the door to get to Eden. Because Rei's speed is unmatched, use him to steal a green apple from the GooKing -- otherwise the GooKing will run away. When you steal the green apple, the GooKing will want it back and will stay and fight you. Defeat him and the GooKing will randomly drop a GooKing sword, which has an attack of 180, which is 50 higher than the Dragon sword.
Information in this section was contributed by Crescent_Pulsar.

Hint: Stealing the Green Apple from GooKing:
You must steal the Green Apple from GooKing to keep him from escaping. Put Rei as the second member of your party. Give the skill "Steal" to Rei, then apprentice him to Fahl. Go to Myria Station and look for an enemy there called GooKing. Use Steal at least once every battle as you look for GooKing. After thirty to forty battles without resting, Rei will always be able to steal the Green Apple from GooKing.
Information in this section was contributed by wilpeter lao.

Hint: Holy Avenger:
Defeat the Archmage to get the Holy Avenger, which is Rei's strongest weapon. It is worth 20,000 gold.
Information in this section was contributed by MeltEmDown.

Hint: Coupons:
After getting Momo back when your an adult, go to Dauna Mine. There is a room behind the location where the Dragon Zombie was fought. Have Momo blast the weakened wall at this location to get the coupons inside. Equip it to get a 10% discount on all items that are bought.
Information in this section was contributed by Alton Do.

Hint: Lavaburst:
You can learn Lavaburst from Vulcans (inside Mt. Zublo near Raphala Region).This attack is strong and powerful. The Vulcans will only use it when they begin to move.

Hint: Manly clothes:
Manly clothes, when equipped on characters that can wear them, will restore full life just as a Soul Gem does when the character faints. You can purchase them in Syn City, but only Ryu, Rei, and Garr can wear them. This is useful during battles with Berserkers and Archmages. The man telling you about Ashura's Sword is who you should talk to. They are also cheaper with coupons
Information in this section was contributed by Crazedcook15.

Hint: Protein:
To get a Protein go to Mt. Zublo and Pilfer or Steal from one of the Vulcans after you bring it back to life. Proteins increase defense.

Hint: Red Catfish:
When you are trying to get the Cupid's Lyre or the Shaman's Ring from Manillo at the Lost Shore fishing spot, five Red Catfish are needed for each of them. Go to the fishing spot south of Duana Mine and use a Baby Frog. There will only be one Red Catfish in the water at a time. They are usually along the far left. Once you catch one, exit then immediately return to catch another.
Information in this section was contributed by cco130.

Hint: Ring Of Fire:
The Ring Of Fire can be obtained inside Mt. Zublo. It will absorb fire attacks as HP.
Information in this section was contributed by Starcare.

You can pilfer Rings of Fire from Fire Drakes in the orbital station Myria.
Information in this section was contributed by James Youngs.

Hint: Ring Of Ice:
You can pilfer Rings of Ice from Ice Drakes in the orbital station Myria.
Information in this section was contributed by James Youngs.

Hint: Defeating Guardian Gaist:
The confrontation with the sole living guardian besides Garr can be made simpler by getting rid of the two torches on either side of Ryu. At first it seems that they just replenish 25HP to Gaist, however they also make his fire-based attacks much more deadly. Note: For a very easy battle, have Ryu equip something that absorbs Fire-based attacks.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Defeating the Dragon Zombie:
Battling with the Dragon Zombie after Ryu becomes older is almost always a tough battle because of its poisoning ability, Bone Dance. To quickly destroy this monster have Ryu cast all his best heal spells on the creature. This trick will work on any undead creature, except for vampires. Note: Do not use healing items such as herbs or vitamins as they will give HP back to the zombies.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Either have Ryu use Eldritch Gene and use Restore, or for an even quicker kill either level Garr up to a high level (above 30) to get Kyrie, or have someone learn it from the priest in the Urkan Tapa. Note: To become his apprentice you must first learn Backhand from Durandal (apprentice yourself to Durandal for three levels).
Information in this section was contributed by David Vickerman.

Hint: Defeating Goo Kings:
In the plant laboratory section of Myria Station (a few sections before Eden, where Teepo is located) and in the hallway just before you take the lift down to Myria's Sanctum, you can fight Goo Kings. They are worth 5,000 experience points and have a chance to drop Ryu's best weapon, the GooKingSword. To defeat these enemies easily, first have a party member apprenticed to Bais (a master in Wyndia; you must first complete the Hide 'n' Seek game as an adult) for three levels until they learn Chain Form. Put Rei in the number one position. In the first round, have Rei use Pilfer on the Goo King. He will steal a Green Apple and the Goo King will start attacking your party with powerful magics. After Rei has Pilfered the Green Apple, have Ryu transform into Tiamat (Shadow + Trance). It costs only 13 AP (7 AP per round) and combines the party into one huge snake-like dragon. However, Tiamat is immune to Tornado and takes only one third damage from Earth spells (Ragnarok). He is also quite resistant to Charge. Have Tiamat attack until the Goo King dies. If Tiamat is defeated, just have Ryu re-transform in the next round. With Chain Form, he will always beat the Goo King's speed. Since you can fight Goo Kings in locations that are next to a resting area (in the lab, at the top of the escalators is a room that will restore your HP and AP to maximum), you do not have to worry about using AP. If Tiamat dies, have Rei cast Charm before Ryu transforms; this will increase your chances of obtaining a GooKingSword.
Information in this section was contributed by The Eye.

Hint: Defeating Myria:
With Ryu, Rei, and Momo in your party, put them into Defense form; any other and Myria will slaughter them offensively very quickly. Ryu must have ShadowWalk as a skill. All three should have Ivory Charms, or Balance Rings and Rings of an element. Ivory Charms will cut elemental damage in half and stop status effects. Balance Rings will stop status effects only, which is why the Rings of an element are needed. Have Ryu transform into the Infinity, Radiance, Trance combo of Kaiser Dragon. This is somewhat costly, but is cheaper than using Aura every turn in another form (over time). Rei should defend or attack Myria directly. Have him heal from every turn hereafter, but leave the Wisdom Fruit usage to Momo. She will appear after Ryu and his Shadowwalk. Momo should use Might on Ryu. If she uses Sanctuary, cast it again. This not only increases attack power, but can serve as a distraction and force her to use Sanctuary instead of attack magics. Have her use a Wisdom Fruit whenever Ryu's AP drops below 27 (due to ShadowWalk's cost of 8 AP; anytime at 35 and lower is recommended). Shadowwalk from Ryu (learned from Meryleep) can do at least 1400 damage a turn, and is much cheaper than Aura. Bonebreak, if available, is also recommended. It is the strongest melee attack. If she uses Venom, you are protected due to Balance Rings and Ivory Charms. Keep pounding away at her. You will need four Wisdom Fruits. Kaiser is expensive to maintain, but it is the best, because you have status invulnerability, unlike the other dragons; and modifier-wise, it ranks very high.
Information in this section was contributed by dragoon_73.

Hint: Defeating the giant slug in the power plant:
At the first instance, use a Molotov or other fire-damaging spell or item. This will remove the slug's outer coating; your Auras will now do much more damage.
Information in this section was contributed by David Vickerman.

Hint: Defeating the three Stallions in Myria Station:
At some point in the final part of Myria Station you will come across three versions of the Boss you fight when Balio and Sunder merge. They all have a different element; fire, ice and lightning. Have Ryu transform into Trygon (Fire + Ice + Thunder). He is now immune to spells and can use Dragon Breath to damage them all.
Information in this section was contributed by David Vickerman.

Hint: Control the Kaiser form:
Usually, Ryu will not have control of the Kaiser. Select Infinity + Trance + Radiance for it to work correctly.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

The Infinity + Trance + Radiance genes are rather costly and will quickly eat up your AP. If you use Failure + Infinity, you will still have a controllable Kaiser form at nearly half the AP cost, although Kaiser Breath looks slightly different.
Information in this section was contributed by P0KeCaRdMaStR.

Infinity + Failure allows you to control Kaiser. Infinity + Radiance + Trance also allows you to control Kaiser, but costs more and is stronger.
Information in this section was contributed by quester.

Hint: Control Weretiger Rei:
Although Influence can be used to control Rei, Influence has to be renewed each round or he will still go Berserk. To counter this, equip Rei with a Light Bangle, which renders him almost 100% immune to all status changes. To obtain the best results in a long fight (such as a difficult boss like Myria), team it up with a Balance Ring. Rei should now be immune to Confusion and Berserk, which means you do not have to worry about trying to control him.
Information in this section was contributed by The Eye.

Hint: Continue game play:
Wait until the "Fin" screen appears after the credits end. Repeatedly press Start at this screen until it disappears and you are prompted to save the game. You can now continue game play with the final Boss defeated.

Hint: More Dex:
When you get Rei in your team, and you want more Dex, go to Mt. Zublo. Go in the Volcano and fight Vulcans. Rei Pilfer from a Vulcan. This will help out when you need Dex.
Information in this section was contributed by Simfan16.

Hint: Easy experience:
Later in the game, develop the fairy village until a copy shop is available. Copy an Ivory Dice until twelve of them are created. Use those dice on an enemy during a battle (for example, the Titan Goo's at Syn City area). Depending which enemy is attacked, 20,000 to 80,000 experience points may be obtained. Using the Ivory Dice in battle increases the amount of experience points that are gained. Using it once doubles the points gain, twice quadruples the points gain, and three times multiplies it by eight.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Go into Mt. Zublo with equipment that resists or absorbs Fire, and either Fire Magic or Molotovs. You should also have Frost magic. Use Fire magic on Lava Men, just as you would to wake up a Vulcan, but keep casting Fire magic on it. The more you do this, the stronger and more experienced it will become. This will increase their power enough for them to cast Inferno, and their attack is also raised. If you go far enough, you can have the same effect as using Ivory Dice, but it is cheaper. Make sure you have Frost magic to kill them quickly once their power has been boosted. This is important because of the effect this will have on them. It is possible to get up to over 8,000 experience points per character before they get too strong. Be careful to watch how strong they get and stay near an exit. When they become too strong, kill them. Their HP will not increase, everything else seems to. Note: This trick does not work on Vulcans. Once awakened, their experience remains at 900 total, and does not change. However, something similar may work on other monsters with elemental absorbing abilities.
Information in this section was contributed by Magrus.

To easily gain experience through fighting and have a good chance of not getting killed, equip a Fire Ring and go to Mt. Zublo. Fight Lava Men and shoot Fire attacks at them, but make sure the person you want to level up is wearing the Fire Ring. After you flame the Lava man for two to three turns, he should use Inferno, healing any damage to the person wearing the Fire Ring, but killing the other two.
Information in this section was contributed by Neonrising.

Train Ryu to at least level 50. Obtain the Force, Gross and Thunder Dragon genes. Go to the container yard near Cair Xhan and walk around until you get into a battle with the Archmages. Use the Dragon Genes Force, Thunder, and Gross. You should have enough life to take a full hit from Mind Sword, and Myollnir damage will be reduced to 0. Have Rei use speed on Ryu (or use Chain Formation) so that Ryu gets an EX Attack. Use Focus 2x with Ryu then use Aura. You should do over 3,000 damage to the Archmage. If you do not, exit and level up before attempting this again.
Information in this section was contributed by janbmiller.

Go to Myria Station and look for an enemy called Vampire. Make sure that he has at least one Nightbat with him. Kill the Vampire before the Nightbat and you will receive 4,000 experience points. If you kill the Nightbat before the Vampire, you will only receive 2,000 experience points.
Information in this section was contributed by wilpeter lao.

Hint: Easy Zenny:
When you reach the factory, walk around until you fight the gold eggs. Defeat them to get little experience but a lot of money. This ranges from 10,000 to 15,000 Zenny. The easiest way to defeat them is to use Rei's Weretiger.
Information in this section was contributed by Adam.

After Beyd gives you 1000 Zenny to buy him weapon and armor, do not give him anything at first. He will then give you another 1000 Zenny to buy him items. You can only get a total of 2000 Zenny from Beyd, but in return you can give him low cost weapons and armor for a large profit.
Information in this section was contributed by T.G. Cid~K.T..

On the road into McNeil town through the woods is a pond with a Croctear. If you have the patience, keep collecting them until you cannot hold anymore. Then, go into McNeil and sell them.
Information in this section was contributed by -Opey-.

When you are in McNeil town, buy some Wooden Rods and a few of each lure. When you are kidnapped later by Bolios and Sunder and taken to the Arena, after you escape go to the Fishing Spot nearby. Use the rod and lures. There are Bass, Rainbow Trout and Puffer there. After you catch some, take them into town and sell them to get some decent armor and weapons.
Information in this section was contributed by -Opey-.

Hint: Defeating Ghosts:
Use Heal on the Ghosts in McNeil Manor to defeat them easily. This also is effective on the McNeil boss.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

To easilty defeat the ghosts in McNeil Manor, get Ryu and heal the Ghost. It will do a large amount of damage. You can also use the highest AP cost healing spell on the Ghost.
Information in this section was contributed by hoa nguyen.

Hint: Defeating the Goddess Of Destruction:
Just before the last battle, Myria will transform herself into the Goddess of Destruction, with about 20,000 HP. Defeat her by transforming Ryu into Myrmidon (Frost + Trance + Force), then choose Aura. This will allow more than 1,000 damage to be done on each turn. Do this repeatedly until she has been defeated. Be ready to use your healing items and assign one or two of your party members to replenish Ryu's AP.
Information in this section was contributed by Richard Brillantes.

To easily defeat Myria, have Ryu learn Aura from the master Ladon, transform into the Kaiser Form 2 (Infinity + Trance + Radiance), then use Aura.
Information in this section was contributed by quester.

Hint: Classic characters:
During the introduction, you can see Ox (big guy with hammer), Gobi (fish with spear), Nina, Ryu, Bo (Dow with bow and arrows) and the goddess Tyr (person behind all the snakes glowing) from the first Breath Of Fire. Others can be seen during the game:

Rand: Any people that look like Fahl.
Bow: Anyone that looks like the dog outside the arena betting with a monkey.
Sten: Betting with bow.
Ox: Anyone who looks like the big man from the mines.
Jean: Anyone who looks like the fat frog sleeping in the Wyindia jail.
Ryu: In your party.
Nina: In your party.
Gobi: The orange fish merchants.

Hint: Hide And Seek, Wyndian Kids:
After Ryu matures, he can be apprenticed to the kids in Wyndia that were in the hide-and-seek game earlier. First, find them in a hide-in-seek game around. They can be found in the following locations.

Bais: In B3 of the Dauna Mine
Lang: Behind a tombstone in the Wyndian cemetery
Lee : In the Eastern Wyndian Checkpoint, in a corner behind the guards
Wynn: In the lower level of Junk Town on the left side
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Free berries:
Go to the coffee shop and kick the tree with the apples. Berries will restore five HPs.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Power Food:
In order to find Power Food, which increases any character's power by one point, have Rei in the party and go to the Factory or any other place that you can fight Hobgoblins. Have Rei pilfer Power Food from them. Steal is a skill that can also be acquired by apprenticing under D'lonzo for four levels.
Information in this section was contributed by Joseph Quattlebaum.

Hint: Master of Agility:
To get the fairie Meryleep to become your master, go east of Wyndia and locate the a spring that is said to be home of the fairies. Have Peco run and knock a rock into the middle of the pool, and a fairie will appear. She will send your character on a mission to get an object stolen from her by a crow. Go to the mountain west of the Arena. Walk behind the mountain and a "?" mark will appear. Enter, then have Peco hit the tree with the crow on it. Take the object back to the fairie and she will offer to be your master. Your agility will go up +2, but HP, Power, and Defense will go down -1.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Thieving:
While walking around towns and other areas, a few zennys can be stolen. Hit people with your sword and four to six zennys should appear. This may even be done on dogs and other animals.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Handling the Weretiger:
When Rei rejoins your party he gains the Weretiger spell. However, the he will attack the party at various times. To avoid this, learn the Influence spell at the start of the game from the pink colored Boss Goblin. After Rei rejoins the party, have a slower character use Influence when he morphs into the Weretiger.
Information in this section was contributed by Dark Warlord.

Hint: Kill Vulcans in volcano:
The Vulcans in Mt. Zublo are usually very hard to kill. However, they are worth 300 exp a throw, which at that stage in the game is a lot. Use this trick to kill them easily. First, before entering Mt. Zublo, buy a large amount of Molotovs (20-30) from Wyndia. After buying these, go into the volcano. When you meet a Vulcan, get one of your characters to use one Molotov on the Vulcan. It should heal it and the message "Vulcan begins to move!" should appear. After that, destroy it. Ice spells are very effective and the Jump skill (if present) also works well.
Information in this section was contributed by Malkier.

Hint: Make Sunder attack Balio:
At any point where you have to face off against Balio and Sunder (the two Unicorn brothers), cast Influence on Balio and Sunder will attack him. This will even work the first time you encounter them with Rei and Teepo.
Information in this section was contributed by David Vickerman.

Hint: Avoid negative ability effects:
If you want an ability, but do not want to deal with the negative effects a master can put on you, simply leave a character (for example, Peco) at level 1 until you find the master you want. Then, get level ups. This is a great and easy way to get Aura on a second character.
Information in this section was contributed by LionHeart708.

Hint: Immunity to elemental attacks:
To get immunity to elemental attacks (frost, flame etc.), equip two Ivory Charms. When equipped, you will not receive any damage by elemental attacks. You will also be completely protected against Psionics and status changes, and you will regenerate HP while walking or in battle (2 HP each turn).
Information in this section was contributed by MiReK.

Hint: Magma Armor:
Every once in a great while, a Vulcan in Mt. Zublo will drop the Magma Armor. It absorbs fire to heal.
Information in this section was contributed by Tyler McClure and T.G. Cid~K.T..

Hint: Beast Spear:
After the fight with Gaist, the last remaining guardian besides Garr, check his ashes for the strongest spear for Garr, the Beast Spear. Note: This weapon drains small amount of HP from him, depending on level.
Information in this section was contributed by Artalexis78.

Hint: Coupons:
Inside the Dauna Mine as an adult, there is a cracked wall next to a treasure chest. You cannot break the wall yet. Return when you have Momo and blast it. Inside is an accessory called Coupons. When you equip them, you will get a 10 percent discount on any item for sale.
Information in this section was contributed by FinalFanastyVll.

Hint: Dragon Blade:
To get the Dragon Blade from Teepo while he is in Lord Dragon form, have Ryu cast Shield on everyone, have Rei still, and have whoever heal or defend. Keep repeating this until Rei steals the Dragon Blade. When you get the sword, equip it to Ryu, because it will do high damage to the dragon -- critical hits will do over 1,000 points of damage.
Information in this section was contributed by Artalexis78.

Hint: Homing Bomb:
In Kombinat, head down the alley to the right of the shops to find a machine soldier behind some crates. Talk to it and it will ask you a question. Answer with the third choice, "Vuguguuoubidea". It will seem very pleased with your answer and give you the Homing Bomb weapon for Momo.
Information in this section was contributed by FinalFanastyVll.

Hint: Life Armor:
Start from Horis's Base Camp near the Factory and take some water. For the first two nights, head north, following the North Star. After breaking camp on the second night, look west and check the Evening Star. It should be directly overhead. If it is, head west following the Evening Star. Continue west for three nights. On the third night you should come across a random battlefield with an item lying on the sand that looks like a silver breast plate. Pick it up to get the Life Armor.
Information in this section was contributed by FinalFanastyVll.

Hint: Royal Sword:
Start a trip From Oasis Town into the desert. First, head south for one night and when day breaks set camp. Rest, break camp, and head south until you enter your first random battle. After exiting the battlefield, turn west and start walking again. Keep heading west for four nights. When you break camp on your fourth night, the first random battle should have the secret item Royal Sword. Its a sword with a red sheath on top of the sand.

Hint: Improved Hybrid Forms:
Ryu can access four different Hybrid Forms (using the Fusion Gene) depending on what other party members are currently present. He can fuse with Nina, Momo, Rei or Peco (but not Garr). However, if you use Fusion and the correct accompanying gene, you can improve these forms. These increase the power of unique spells granted by using Fusion or grant extra spells.

Nina Fusion: (Fusion + Eldritch): Temptation spell becomes more powerful. This spell afflicts all targets with various negative effects (for example, Sleep, Confusion).
Momo Fusion: (Fusion + ???): Improves Combustion spell (acts like Sirocco, but is more powerful) and allows use of Might.
Rei Fusion: (Fusion + Force): Tempest spell gets improved damage and Agility is boosted more than normal.
Peco Fusion: (Fusion + Shadow): More HP, better regeneration, and Geo Breath becomes Gaia's Breath. These spells are both Earth-based breath weapons and will therefore not damage flying enemies. Gaia's Breath is more powerful than Geo Breath.

You will know if you got these combinations correct because the corresponding Hybrid will be a different color than usual.
