    I actually think Rudra is better than Agni/Infinity because you can easily do more than 999 damage in a turn with a party of 4. You get them at the same time, but I only use Agni for the Goddess, because it's required there to face her true form. Also, I didn't even know how to use Agni the first time I played because it requires that Karn isn't transformed and I pretty much always had Karn transformed, so I got plenty of uss out of that "second best" dragon. Definitely agree that BoF3 has the best dragon system though.

    I honestly like the Dragon Transformations better in the sequel, despite not being my ideal one which is BoFIII. Largely because they felt better balanced to the game. Sure they were a one shot hot mess, but in addition to Ryu not really needing his AP, it was nice they were fairly powerful. In BoF1 you're often obligated to use them until the form becomes too weak since they all did fixed damage. Not helped that you basically get his last two forms right on top of each other, leaving one of them completely useless since Agni/Infinity is so overpowered. I honestly just had more fun with Ryu's setup in the sequel than the first game, but I attribute this to really Capcom's inexperience.

    Sadly, the GBA ports did seem like kind of a lazy cash grab on Capcom’s part. Sure, they redrew the portraits (an improvement in I, but debatable in II) and redid the menus, and that was it. They didn’t polish the gameplay or add any extra features, so I’m not really surprised they didn’t bother with a retranslation. While I still like those ports for being so colorful (IMO that’s how BOF is supposed to look like), they still kinda pale in comparison to SE’s effort to port the SNES FF titles to GBA, as well as Dawn of Souls.

    That's true, it's still a shame that Capcom didn't do much to really upgrade the scripts when they had a chance though.
