|Breath of Fire III Boss|
- Main article: Sunder
Sunder is a boss within Breath of Fire III. He is fought twice during the course of the game, both times in conjunction with Balio. The first battle cannot be won, and must be lost in order to progress.
This battle can be won, however the game will still continue if Ryu were to be defeated.
- Have Ryu equipped with Silver Knife, Bandana, Bracers and Waistcloth, having an agility higher than 12, you can guarantee that your actions will happen before Sunder AND Balio.
- Have some 10 vitamins on your inventory, and the skill Influence.
Cast Influence on Balio, this way, Sunder will attack Balio.
Now, you will only be hit by Balio attacks (Lightning - 40-45 damage - Attack - 25-40 damage). Dedicate all your turns on the healing, using Healing Herbs when his attacks are lower than 40, and Rejuvenates/Vitamins when his attacks deals 40 or more.
After 10 turns, the princess will wake up, attacking one of the two bosses and escaping during the following turn. Two turns later, Balio will flee (so be sure to keep healing any damage!), and the following turn Sunder will follow Balio.
As a reward, you will win 110 Exp, and maybe a Asbestos Armor or a Broad Sword.
- Interestingly, as stated above, the Influence skill works on Sunder, which turns him against Balio, making any battle easier. Considering they are brothers who do everything together, it is surprising that Sunder can be so easily turned against Balio. This may reflect Sunder's lower intelligence and easily agreeable nature compared to Balio, hence why Influence works on him.
