Breath of Fire IVEdit
In Breath of Fire IV two Shishi are present, both are servants to Fou-Lu to whom they hold unbreakble loyalty towards. The Shishi are batteled at some point and make quite a difficult fight. If anyother Shishi exist in the Breath of Fire universe or if they were simply created by the God Emporer to serve him. is unknown.
- A-tur: They are one of the two found in the game. Slightly more powerful then the other Shishi they are golden in colour and attacks similar to Won-qu. He is not aware that Ryu is the second half of Fou-Lu.
- Won-qu: Won-qu is the second found in Breath of Fire IV, they unlike A-tur are aware of Ryu being the second half of Fou-Lu but ignores this fact and still follows his command. Won-qu is greenish in colour and yellow. They serve as a temporary guide after accepting defeat.
