Reminder Text [mana cost]: This creature gets +N/+0 until end of turn.

Firebreathing is any mechanic that pays homage to the original Firebreathing card; that is, "{R}: This creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn".[1] This mechanic was featured on the card Shivan Dragon in Alpha and, in general, is a trademark of most dragons. It's most often seen on red creatures.[2] White tends to get one-time upgrades of usually +1/+0. Green gets +N/+0 when it's not intended for it to survive the fight.
