Coincidentally, I just watched the movie The NeverEnding Story (1984) for the first time yesterday, and was wondering if Falkor the Luck Dragon might have been referenced in the Mana series through the Mana Beast / Flammie.  There's even a scene in the movie where Atreyu is flying on Falkor and they are soaring over the land with some music that really sounds like JRPG flight music, like beginning here at 0:45...

Hello Jon!
Thank you for the video.  :)

Pocky & Rocky 2 on Snes has an even closer scene to the movie, for the resemblance of the dragon's body.

Our Japanese and Chinese friends use them a lot, it's in their culture.
Some dragons are evil while others are extremely benevolent or wise...

I like this movie clip close to the Mana atmosphere.
It's a nice find and I thank you very much for sharing it.  :)
