How To Beat Geese Howard:
-------------------------
  This section is for those who want to know how to
beat Geese with perfect with every character. I can
tell you everything about it. You may know how to beat
him, but most of you do not know the exact strategy
how to beat Geese perfectly good and getting perfect
with the two rounds. Easy and simple if you read
carefully what I have to say: 

=============
Terry Bogard:
=============
+++++++++++++
Command List:
+++++++++++++
1)Burning Knuckle: Quarter circle backward + A
-
2)Rising Uppercut: Down, up + A
-
3)Super Shot: Down/backward, up/forward + B
-
4)Power Wave: Quarter circle forward + A

++++++++++++++
Beating Geese:
++++++++++++++
  Do not make it as if it is a big deal and Geese is
unbeatable...

  When the match begins, Geese will perform Reppu Ken,
jump back to avoid it, then FAST do Burning Knuckle,
he will not defend it. Then do it over and over again
until he dies. 

  Geese does not defend Burning Knuckle, Power Wave
and Super Shot (sometimes). He defends Super Shot a
lot. 

++++++++++++++++++++
Perfect Possibility:
++++++++++++++++++++
  C'mon, this is nothing to Art of Fighting 2...  

  The possibility to get perfect is 100%.

============
Andy Bogard:
============
+++++++++++++
Command List:
+++++++++++++
1)Spinning Uppercut: Backward, forward + A
-
2)Flying Guillotine: Down, up + A
-
3)Power Punch: Down/backward, up/forward + B
-
4)Fire of Zen: Quarter circle forward + A

++++++++++++++
Beating Geese:
++++++++++++++
  You only need to focus and make perform Reppu Ken,
anyway... he will perform it when the fight begins,
jump back to avoid it then FAST do Spinning Uppercut,
then do it over and over again until he dies...

  You can also go backward with the match begin then
fast do Spinning Uppercut. It will come faster than
Geese's Reppu Ken. And even if Geese defends it, keep
doing it until he dies, he will not be able to do
anything. 

  Geese does not defend Spinning Uppercut (most of the
time), Fire of Zen and Flying Guillotine. And blocks
Power Punch (most of time).

++++++++++++++++++++
Perfect Possibility:
++++++++++++++++++++
  A very childish strategy... if you cannot do it,
then you are a baby!  

  The possibility to get perfect is 100%.

============
Joe Higashi:
============
+++++++++++++
Command List:
+++++++++++++
1)Thrash Kick: Quarter circle backward + B
-
2)Machine Gun Punch: Push A repeatedly
-
3)Tiger Kick: Down/backward, up/forward + B
-
4)Hurricane Uppercut: Quarter circle forward + A

++++++++++++++
Beating Geese:
++++++++++++++
  You need to perform in order to beat Geese, but
Joe's Thrash Kick is kind of slow. So when the match
begins, Geese will go backward and you have to walk
forward and then get very near him to grab him. Do not
worry, he will not hit you unless he is completely
cornered. So, when you grab him, perform Thrash Kick
and if he defends it, then fast crouching B the keep
doing it until he dies. And if he did not defend
Thrash Kick, then keep doing it until he dies. 

  Geese does not defend Thrash Kick (most of the
time), Tiger Kick and Machine Gun (sometimes). And he
defends Hurricane Upper (most of the time).  

++++++++++++++++++++
Perfect Possibility:
++++++++++++++++++++
  This is a little bit hard... just a bit.  

  The possibility to get perfect is 96%.

=======================================================

--------------------
The Full Percentage:
--------------------
 So, you know what full percentage. But the percentage
changes... it depends if you want to play cheap, use a
strategy or do anything to get perfect (Perfect Fight
Percentage)... or play and just kill Geese without
carrying about the perfect (Normal Fight Percentage).
It will be like this...

=========================
Beating Geese Percentage:
===========================
Name      P.F.P.   N.F.P.
===========================
Terry     100%      87%
===========================
Andy      100%      94%
===========================
Joe        96%      74%
===========================

Questions & Answers:
--------------------
  This section is for those who E-Mailed me about a
thing or two about Geese or some aspects, instead of
e-mailing them back, I will answer here so that nobody
would ask the same questions again. But these
questions were asked from a long time ago. My friends
I mean... but I will just put them here:

Q: Is it true Geese originally came from a SNK game
called "The Super Spy"?

A: To be honest, I played The Super Spy way before
Fatal Fury. But I am not sure who was released first,
The Super Spy or Fatal Fury. But yes, Geese was in
that game... and of course as a bad guy. I was pretty
much a fighting games fan, and I saw and played the
Super Spy before Fatal Fury... I "think" The Super Spy
came out first!

-

Q: Why are most of the character not playable?

A: SNK guys were may be thinking of idiotic ideas
first, then they realized their error. Like what
happened in Art of Fighting.

-

Q: When you fought Geese in The Super Spy, did he have
the same BGM?

A: No, he didn't. Geese Ni Katakori was heard first in
Fatal Fury: The King of Fighters. And we are mainly
talking about Geese in Fatal Fury, not The Super Spy!

-

Q: This game is so damn old, why did you write a FAQ
about it?

A: Old is gold. And good games never get old. I am
actually writing a FAQ about Geese, in case you did
not notice. I just love him and I will always write
anything about him whenever they put him in any game.
Geese is an original character and a very classic
character who makes me remember all the good things
and very good times I spent playing him. I love him so
much, I do not think there is someone out there that
loves and endures Geese as I do. Even if they make him
suck big time and make him moves so damn bad and
useless, I will always use him and make him good no
matter what. I believe in him and in his ambitions.
Yes, he is only a video game character, but oh well...
things that come with good memories are always the
best things that everyone would like to have.

=======================================================

Last Word:
---------------
  Okay, Finally... it is finished. Hope I was helpful
and useful to you. If anybody wants to use anything,
by all means do so, but tell me so first before you do
that. And if anybody have any doubts about any
combination attack or cannot perform any, kindly,
E-Mail me and I will explain it more clearly to you.
Remember, do not stick with the rules a lot... Screw
The Rules.
