Serious discussion of speed runs and other challenge-type playthroughs takes place almost exclusively at the Breath of Fire III Message Board at GameFAQs. The first known speed run for BoF3 was done by a user named SharpPaper, however, serious speed running of the game was pioneered by DavidK5, who has since completed five full segmented speed runs and two single segment runs.
The best known in-game completion time in a segmented run is 7 hours 41 minutes, which was completed by DavidK5 on July 14, 2012. He also completed the fastest known single-segment (no save) run on January 1, 2013 with an in-game completion time of 9 hours 23 minutes.

- Cheating devices, including but not limited to, Gameshark, turbo controllers, and hardware modifications may not be used.
- Only ‘’repeatable’’ in-game glitches (such as the item duplication glitch and Angel Tower warp) may be utilized.
