One of the three variations of the Breath attack in Final Fantasy VIII.

What could be more terrible than the breath of the mighty dragon? Not many know that this fearsome weapon is indeed a wholly natural emission generated in a large gland, rather prosaically named "the breath-sac." Thus, the wyrmbreath is a purely physical manifestation of searing flame, and one that has provided an impromptu pyre for many an overzealous adventurer.
