Dragon Genes Locations & Guide

           This guide covers all of the Dragon Genes that you can find throughout Breath of Fire III. Dragon Genes are used for Ryu's Ascension ability which allows him to transform using the power of The Brood. If you'd like to learn more about Ryu's Dragon Transformation follow the link provided to be taken to that guide.

           You won't find the Dragon Genes that are given to you automatically throughout the game mentioned on this page, I figured since they're automatic there was no reason in adding them into this guide. The rest of the Dragon Genes are mentioned in the same order that you'll find them in game.

           The Eldritch Gene is found atop the Lighthouse in the port town of Rhapala. In order to gain access to the light house you'll need to complete a mini side quest for The Guild in town. It's a long ordeal but it's part of the main quest line so you'll have to do it.

Dragon Miracle Gene - Mt. Zublo (Inside Dungeon)

Dragon Miracle Gene Location

           East of Rhapala after you gain access to Mt. Zublo you'll be able to find the Miracle Gene inside the caves. It's almost impossible to miss this one since the path going through the dungeon passes right by it - and you have to go through this dungeon more than once. That said, you will have to cross some lava to reach the Dragon Gene.

           The Dragon Gross Gene is found at the end of the Tidal Caves dungeon. Just before you exit the dungeon and find yourself back on the world map heading south you'll find the Gross Gene. Alternatively, if you some how missed this your first time through the area, enter the Tidal Caves region from the southern end - not the northern end. You'll enter the dungeon on the side of the Dragon Gene in this case.

           Right after you cross the Ocean for the first time and explore the outside areas you'll come across another Yggdrasil Tree. This one can't be a Master like the one on the other side of the world and when Peco interacts with it, not much is said. There is however a Dragon Gene right behind the tree.

Dragon Radiance Gene - Container Yard

Relay Point A Teleporter OptionsDragon Radiance Gene Location

           There's two ways for you to reach the Radiance Gene. The first is to take the portal in Steel Beach immediately after activating it to the Container Yard. You'll be able to walk across the box shown in my screen shot above and grab the Dragon Gene.

           Alternatively you could also wait until you cross the Desert of Death and find yourself in the Container Yard. Put Garr in your party and push the crate you see in the screen shot above into the wall to break it. This will allow you fast travel to and from this area so you never have to cross the horrid desert again.
