-------
Ending:
-------
Goenitz: What a surprise. I didn't think the Kusanagi were so tough! My
mistake... what the... oh, well. But don't even think of getting involved with
the Orochi Power.
Kagura: No way, ugly. I will seal off the Orochi Power for good. By the blood
of Kusanagi, Kyo Kusanagi. Concentrate carefully. Only you can expel the
Orochi. And if you find you can't, the Kusanagi will never forgive you! You
cannot escape the destiny of the Kusanagi.

Goenitz: Hmph. You self-centered, sanctimonious... give it up! Silly broad,
ahhh... a fine wind blows. The time has come.
Benimaru: Trying to escape, huh?

Goenitz: No, I am being called... to heaven.

  After Goenitz killed himself...

Kyo: You may have known the Kusanagi of 1800 years before, but the Orochi were
unable to discern my strength! Here we are even!
Benimaru: At last it's all over.

Kyo: Aaah.
Benimaru: What's next?

Kyo: Gotta go home, dude. Finals are coming up!
Benimaru: You liar. You'll get home and crash.

Kyo: Shut up, girly-boy. Give it a rest!
Benimaru: Who you calling girly-boy?

Kyo: You, swish-face!
Daimon: Oh, when are you two going to grow up? Study hard, you guys!

Benimaru: Later, Daimon!
Daimon: Later!

Kyo: Yagami? Kagura? Orochi? All the old cast is accounted for. At least, my
duty is done.

  Kyos remembers...

Iori: We still have a few accounts to settle!
Kagura: You cannot escape the destiny of the Kusanagi!
Goenitz: But don't even think of getting involved with the Orochi Power.

  Then...

Kyo: Well, at least life won't be boring for a while!
Benimaru: At last it's over, eh, Kyo?

Kyo: No... it's just begun!

Goenitz: It seems I played around a little too much... Kagura, your warriors
were too much for me... but you will never seal off the Orochi Power again.
Give it up now, while you still can.

away.

Goenitz: You vain fools... oh, a fine wind blows. My time has come.
Terry: Hey, you're not getting away.

Goenitz: No, I'm not... I'm dying you idiot! I'm being called away... to
heaven.

Fighters'96. I'm back to training every day and I'm kicking butt. Mai is as

Robert: Master, it's not Halloween!

Mr. Karate: I'm not your master. I'm the legendary Mr. Karate! I saw your
little battle. You did the Kyokugen proud. But you don't understand all of
Kyokugen, and a whole bunch of people who are aching to teach you what's what!
Yuri: Hey, Ryo! Let's amascray!

Mr. Karate: Hey, all of you, listen up...
Ryo: But Dad's not finished. I wonder what's with that silly mask!
Yuri: Oh, let him babble on! He'll never miss us!
Robert: Yeah, Ryo. If we don't get out of here, we'll have to bear his
preaching!

Ryo: You're right. Okay, a discreet exit. Stage left! Mr. Karate: ...and that's

Ralf & Clark: Aaah...

Ralf: Well, at any rate, just laugh and your troubles will fly on little

Clark: It's not so simple, because of this, the commander...
Leona: :(

Ralf: Because of this what? Are you picking a fight?
Clark: You wanna piece of me?!

Ralf: How 'bout a chunk, pellet head!

  Then Clark grabs Ralf so tightly.

Mai: She knew Kyo?
Kasumi: Not only Kyo, the whole Kusanagi clan!

Mai: Hey, this is just too major a concept for me!

Goenitz: I understimated the strength of the Yagami... but you dupes should
know Yagami is dangerous! If he possesses the Orochi Power he and you will be
destroyed by his awesome power!
Vice: You mean the legendary "Riot of the Blood"?
Mature: Don't worry about us, loser.

Goenitz: Yeah, I guess you're right. You'll find out soon enough... a fine wind
blows. It's time.
Iori: Gonna run away to Mommy, huh? Fine with us!

Goenitz: No, I'm being called... to heaven.

  After Goenitz killed himself.

Vice: Hey, did he... die?
Mature: Perhaps. He's just that kinda guy.

Vice: But that Yagami is one scary dude!
Mature: Are you shaking?

Vice: Yeah, he ain't normal. But, that guy... I mean... he's really tough.
Iori: W, what? I can't see! YAAAH! UNNHHH! GYA... GWAAAAH!

Goenitz: Just as I thought. Your hate served you well. But you should leave the
Orochi behind. If you don't...
Geese: How many times do I have to tell you, I hate being ordered around!

Goenitz: Is that so... a fine wind blows. It's time.
Geese: Go ahead, escape, you loser!

Goenitz: No, I'm being called... to heaven.

  After Goenitz killed himself.

Geese: Killed himself. Good. In the end the Orochi was nothing to write home
about.

  While Geese is deeply thinking, Mr. Big trys to take that good chance to kill
him, but then Billy blocks the bullet by his rod.

Billy: Geese, you okay?
Geese: Billy...

Billy: ....
Geese: What are you doing here? What's going on?

Mr. Big: Just a way to thank you for bringing us into this bizarre tournament.
You used us like prawns! I'll make you pay someday. Prepare yourself.
Geese: That's pawns! And you just do as you like, Chrome Dome!
Krauser: It was quite entertaining. Later, Geese!

Billy: Let's get outta here, boss. We'll hit the sauna.
Geese: Yeah, Billy. Good idea.

  Terry's picture shows up as if Geese is remembering something important...

Ending:

you will never seal off the Orochi Power again. Give it up now, while you still

Kagura: Don't flatter yourself, ugly. The Orochi Power is as good as locked

Goenitz: You vain fools... oh, a fine wind blows. My time has come.
Geese: You're not getting away.

Goenitz: No, I'm being called away... to heaven.

  After Goenitz killed himself...

Kagura: Ladies and gentlemen! Thank you! At last Goenitz's foolish fantasies
are crushed. If he had won, we'd all be cowering in fear of the forces of evil!
A scary thought, huh? But ladies and gentlemen, all does not end here! Someday
the forces of evil will thunder through our world again. And when that
happens... well, I'm sure we'll meet again. Good night!

  Here ends the tournament. Based on the power of these three heroes, the
forces of darkness have been cleared from the earth. And everyone is dancing in
the streets! But, ironically, the deeds of these heroes go unknown. These three
did not go down in history and, to find there destiny, scattered to the far
corners of the world. But this battle was perhaps simply a prelude to a greater
catastrophe. A catastrophe of which no one is aware... until...!

Iori: Hah! "ONE-FOR-THE-ROAD" BLAST!
Goenitz: AHHHHH!

Kyo: Hah! Eat this, pal! SERPENT WAVE!
Goenitz: GYAAAH!

Iori: ....
Kyo: ....
Kagura: ....
Goenitz: Why? Why is there no wind? GYAAAAAH!

  After Goenitz dies...

Iori: Wow! I normally don't blast crimson flames! Wild!
Kagura: Kusanagi defeats, Yagami disposes. You have relived the events of 1800
years before! The evil serpent has been sealed off by the crimson flames of
Yagami, defeated by Kusanagi!

  Iori looks at her with wonder.

Kagura: The crimson flame of Yagami came from a part of your long-repressed
true essence.
Iori: Nonesense! I don't buy that freudian garbage!

Kagura: The blue flames you control come from the Orochi Power flowing within
you. The reason for your bloodline's short life is this Orochi Power. If you
continue to use that power, you, too, will..
Yagami: Die? Who, me? I'm Yagami!

  Suddenly Iori feels pain/

Iori: HUH! GAH! DOWAAAAH!
Kyo: ....

Kagura: Get a grip, Yagami! The Kusanagi-Yagami feud is pointless. Give it up
and destroy the Orochi Power with Kyo Kusanagi! We need your strength.
Iori: Shut up! I live according to my will. No one orders me around!

Kagura: Are you the same, Kyo?
Kyo: The battle is not between the Kusanagis and the Yagamis. It's between him
and me. I know nothing of the past. If the Orochi appears before Yagami, he'll
destroy it. If the Orochi appears before me, I'll destroy it, too. So long...

Kagura: Kusanagi, we have watched your battle over the years. We have no
intention to favor one over the other. We know this battle is inevitably
senseless. Yagami, you, too, will someday realize this! And you, Kusanagi...
you are destined to face the same fate! Until then, I'll...

  Geese and Iori are not a must. You could choose any other two... but Goenitz
is a must.

-------
Ending:
-------
Goenitz: A fierce opponent, and a good looking guy. A suitable end for this
little farce. But let's really end it. Let's color the curtain with your blood!

  Suddenly...

Goenitz: GAAAH. WHAT'S THIS?
Kagura: You have just battled yourself, fool. If you destroy him, you destroy
yourself.

Goenitz: Talk about the ultimate form of masochism? You sirprise me with your
power, Kagura!
Kagura: I'm not alone, wiener-schnitzel breath!
Geese: What?
Iori: Where am I?

Kagura: You have awoken from the Orochi spell.
Goenitz: Hmmm, even after her death she still kept her eyes on me!
Geese: What?

Kagura: Goenitz, you...
Goenitz: But I have no regrets. The story is about to end here... an end
unseen... the final curtain.

  Goenitz disappeard alone with the wind. And all freed from this spell, each
went back to searching for their own destinies.

Kagura: The wind... it's stopped! Thank you, sis! Now you can rest in peace.

P.S. The above ending is only on Neo Geo and Neo Geo CD.

----------------------
Funny And Cool Things:
----------------------
===========
Funny Part:
===========
  The first funny thing is, I was playing the game on Neo Geo the other day and
my team was Geese, Iori and Mr. Big. Then I thought that they would change some
lines in the edit team ending, but actually they didn't. Still it says: "Here
ends the tournament. Based on the power of these THREE HEROES." And: "But,
ironically, the deeds of THESE HEROES go unknown." Now, DO THEY REALLY LOOK
LIKE HEORES? Are they even close to be heroes? Did they act like ones? I mean,
do they have the faces of the heroes? Okay, HA HA HA!

  The second laughable thing is when Iori said "Wow" just because he managed to
blast crimson flames! C'mon, Iori says WOW! It just doesn't sound like him. It
makes him sound so pathetic... it's like a pretty child running to his Mommy so
happily just to tell her: "Wow, Mom. You bought a chocolate!" Get the picture?

  The third very funny thing is that I had to correct some mispelled words.
What? The game is so great... now were they really hurry to release the game?
Who cares... the game rocks. But mispelling some words is a bit funny and makes
the people say unhappy things about the company. SNK must not be lazy next (if
there is, that is)

  The fourth laughable thing is when the Art of Fighting were making fun of
Takuma's mask... Ryo said: "I wonder what's with that silly mask!", Robert
said: "Master, it's not Halloween!" and Yuri said: "What's the deal?"!!!! Nice
jokes, but how could they forget the most unhappy moments they lived back in
the first Art of Fighting? Funny...

==========
Cool Part:
==========
  I liked Goenitz's quotes... he is really something, really. I liked the most
when Terry said to him: "Hey, you're not getting away." And in a very cool and
sweet reply, Goenitz said: "No, I'm not... I'm dying you idiot!" Poor Terry, he
plays hide and seek often.

  When the blood comes out from Goenitz's mouth... damn, that is cool. I mean
look at his ugly and tough face... the looks is way cool to see. I like that
part.

  Did you notice that Kagura does not appear in two endings? Yes, Yagami's Team
ending and The Boss Team ending. Because they are both bad teams, but of course
The Boss Team is bigger, badder and better. I think that was cool, because I
was wondering how could she appear in front of bad guys? She will be insulted
or kicked out in no time. Bravo, SNK.

  Did you think Geese was not paying attention to Mr. Big when he shot him, or
he knew, but was so sure that he cannot be killed by a bald, wothless and
reckless guy like Big? Whatever it was, I think he was way cool to me... that
what makes me like Geese A LOT. He is so cold and evil. I liked his reply to
Mr. Big. It's as if he was really off and not in the mood at all. So damn
evil... no matter how many evil dudes are and will be there, Geese will always
be on top of them ALL! His evil is unmatched by anyone.
