    Geese Howard
    A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
      What you will read down is my strategy, which
    means.. it might not be workable with you as it is
    with me and may be yes. I really do not need any
    E-Mail(s) asking: "What is good or bad" since I will
    fully talk about everything about him (including
    combination attacks). Hope it will somehow be useful
    to you and lead your play or skills to a higher level.
      You will say: "What are you talking about? He is not
    playabe!" Well, that is right, but I mean how does the
    computer fully play and some other aspects as well.

    Why Geese?
      Well, you cannot play as Geese, but you can let him
    kick your @$$. There is no why, Geese rules and he
    always owns everybody. I like his evil look and his
    stage... not to metion his BGM and moves.
      Geese always fights in his tower... Geese Tower. A
    lovely stage where you can see Southtown in the
    background. And his demon status around the stage....
    Background Music:
      It is Geese Ni Katakori... the best BGM (background
    music) in the game. It makes me so hot and play so
    fast. Yup, the original BGM for the bad@$$ villain,
    Geese Howard.
    Character Background
      He is a former champion of the National Arts of
    America. Before he became a champion, people in the
    underground were afraid of him and he was nicknamed
    "Lone Wolf Killer Geese". Underhandedly, he achieved
    fame and authority in Southtown. Geese killed Jeff
    Bogard who was the only person who could threaten his
    plans. Then he trained under every martial arts master
    around. He became a brutal killer and it is rumored
    that he is as strong as a demon...
      August 13th, 1992, Geese Howard dies in the hospital
    3 hours after falling from a high rise. 
    Standing A = Hard Punch 
    Crouching A = Light Punch
    Standing B = Hard Kick
    Crouching B = Light Kick 
    C = Used for throwing the enemy
    Command List:
    Special Moves:
    1)Reppu Ken: Quarter circle forward + A
    2)Knockdown Blow: Half circle forward, up/forward + B 
    Katate Nage: Near opponent... press the C button
      It seems that Geese is the most powerful character
    here for many reasons... and good reasons. Movements
    speed, good ability, agility and invincible moves. On
    with it...
      Geese's Hard Punch come out so fast and you will not
    even know the timeing, because it is fatser than most
    of other heroes' Special Attacks. Just try to jump and
    attack and he will always kick your @$$ with his Hard
      His Hard Kick does have the same case actually and
    that is what most of the people did not realize when
    they fought Geese back then. The weakness begins only
    when he is about to kick, but after then everything
    becomes invincible. So, you have to get that weakness
    to your side and work hard not to miss such a rare
      His Light Punch is also good and fast, but he does
    not depend on it often, he always goes for something
    painful and very harmful. The same case goes for his
    Light Kick. Geese actually jumps with B a lot, because
    it has good range. For safety, sometimes he jumps back
    and B to be very sure that you will not trade hit with
    him. As for the A, he does not use it that much... he
    should not, because B is a lot helpful and useful than
    the A.
      His Reppu Ken is so damn fast, once it comes out,
    say good bye to Mommy. He would endlessly repeat it
    until you shamelessly die. The only move that is
    faster than it is Andy's Spinning Uppercut... then
    other don't have a chance. So, in order to get him you
    have to perform your move two seconds before him.
    Otherwise you are history.
      Hands down... Knockdown Blow is the best move in the
    game with no exception at all. Nothing can be done to
    deny this fact. If Geese was playable, then I would
    stick with Knockdown Blow all day and make you a good
    person to laugh at. It is a counter and a throw move.
    Example, if you just at him and attack he will counter
    your attack, and if you tried to be a smart @$$ and
    did not attack, he will throw by all means. So, I will
    sure not wait for you to attack... I will attack and
    attack and attack and when you come near me and when I
    come near you, I will be SO CHEAP and perform
    Knockdown Blow until you die. 
      If I by mistake done it from far away (which will
    never happen, because I am not stupid), you can wait
    and then attack. But remember that the lag to this
    move is very damn short, so be fast and die. Knockdown
    Blow is good and so good, that is why they did not
    make it as it is in the other games he was in... and
    that is a fact.
      Katate Nage is good so that you could be open. I
    mean you will give Geese time to do anything next and
    that is what you do not want him to have! Space and
    time and good for the CPU Geese. 
      So, Geese always goes backward when the match
    begins, if you go forward that is! There seems to be
    some errors in his movements when you just walk
    forward, you make him so confused and he will most of
    the time be open to be thrown or beaten up for good.
    If you jump at him he will either jump with you and B,
    Knockdown Blow or Hard Punch. He will react VERY fast.
    You have to make him stand still and forget about
    attacking him for the air. You have many other good
      Sometimes he throws when you play cheap and easily
    comes to you and then Knockdown Blow to throw you...
    not counter you. If you attack from a distance he will
    most of the time use his Hard Kick and repeat or will
    perform Reppu Ken. If he performs his Reppu Ken, he
    will throw another one if you do nothing and if you
    jump, he will do what I said above. So, you have some
    holes in his gameplay, if you can get him there... you
    will own him. If you don't then he will eat you alive.
    He does not even use any of his easy combos if you
    want to talk about his goodness! Try to read him like
    an open book and he will be as easy as Zero in the
    King of Fighters'2000!
      It is pretty easy and simple. Geese is not "that"
    complicated. People only make it as if it is a big
    deal, but actually it is not... like the CPU in Art of
    Fighting 2. Just because you do not understand the
    opponents' movements and strategies, it does not mean
    the game sucks and the boss is a God for that matter. 
      It's not about the game difficulty or the moves
    invincibilty, it's about the people that think of
    their money before the fun and the good time they
    should spend on any game! 
      I will only write the names of the moves (not the
    commands), I have always been so... so if anybody is
    not good with it, you can see the command list above
    and then check here again. I will list every good,
    bad, short, long, easy and hard combos. I really will
    not bother to look for sites to put any of their
    combos in here. I like to see my work completely
    original, but you might know all the combos... I will
    put it just for Geese's fans' sake. 
    1)Hard punch, Reppu Ken
    2)Jump hard kick, light kick, Knockdown Blow
    3)Jump hard punch, hard punch, Reppu Ken
    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
      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
    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 him 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
      You can also go backward with the match begins 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
      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 Thrash Kick 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 then 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 not easy... 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 fan of fighting games, 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 characters not playable?
    A: SNK guys were may be thinking of idiotic ideas
    first, then they realized their errors. 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
    F.A.Q. about it?
    A: Old is gold. And good games never get old. I am
    actually writing a F.A.Q. 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 his 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
    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.
    Special Thanks:

    2)To Gamefaqs.
    3)To all Geese's fans.
