    I. Introduction
    ===============
    
    This is or Terry Bogard.  I've done one for Kyo and Iori, so I 
    figured I'd do one for Terry.  I have used Terry for quite a while in 
    KoF, and used him quite often against my friends.  
    The move lists and descriptions I got from sitting next to my machine 
    and watching the move several twenty times on training mode.

    Grooves
    *******
    
    C-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This mode is similar to the Alpha Series as well as Capcom Groove in 
    the original game.  The character has a gauge at the bottom of the 
    screen, which is divided into three sections, shown by a larger area 
    as the level increases. Attacking and performing moves will increase 
    this gauge.   
    
    Depending on the Level, Different levels of Super Combos can be 
    performed:
    
    Level 1- Super Combo Command + LP or LK
    Level 2- Super Combo Command + MP or MK
    Level 3- Super Combo Command + HP or HK
    
    The higher the level, the more powerful it usually will be.  The 
    levels are cumulative, so doing a level 2 super on with a Level 3 
    gauge will leave the bar with 1 level left.
    
    Dash- Tap either Forward or Back Twice quickly to do a small dash in 
    that directly.  
    
    Rolling- Press LP and LK simultaneously to perform a moving dodge, 
    which can pass through most Special and Super moves, as well as the 
    opponent.  
    
    Counter Attack- While blocking, immediately tap Forward + MP+MK to 
    perform a counterattack.  Note that it requires 1 level of the Super 
    Gauge to perform this move.
    
    Air Block- Press Back whilst in the air to block.  Super moves cannot 
    be air blocked.
    
    Tactical Recovery- When Knocked down, press all 3 Punch Buttons to 
    delay your character getting up.
    
    A-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This mode is similar to the Custom Combo Groove, the V-ism from 
    Street Fighter Zero 3.  At the bottom of the Screen is a Custom Combo 
    Gauge, which can be filled up by attacking.  At 50% full, a Level 1 
    Super combo can be performed.  When full, a Custom Combo can be 
    performed.
    
    Level 1- Super Combo Command + Button
    Level 2- Custom Combo - HP and HK Simultaneously
    
    Dash- Tap Forward or Back Twice to do a quick small dash towards the 
    enemy.  
    
    Safe Fall- Press All Three Punch Buttons whilst Landing to recover on 
    the ground.
    
    Rolling- Press LP and LK simultaneously to perform a rolling dodge 
    which can pass through most Special and Super Attacks, as well as the 
    opponent.
    
    Counter Attack- While blocking, immediately tap Forward + MP+MK to 
    perform a counterattack.  Note that it requires 1 level of the Super 
    Gauge to perform this move.
    
    P-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This Groove is the most similar to the Street Fighter 3 system.  It 
    includes the Parry Command as well as a single level Super gauge 
    which fills up when attacking.
    
    Super Combo- Super Command +Button
    Note that there is only one level in P-Groove, and that it will be a 
    Level 3 combo.
    
    Parry- The Instant the opponent makes contact with a hit, Tap forward 
    for High Attacks, and Down for low attacks.  The opponent will Parry 
    the away the opponent, leaving them open for a counterattack.  The 
    timing window has been decreased significantly though, making it 
    harder to perform.
    
    Dash- Tap Forward or Back Twice to do a quick small dash towards the 
    enemy.  
    
    Safe Fall- Press All Three Punch Buttons whilst Landing to recover on 
    the ground.
    
    Small Jump- Tap Up, or any Up Directional to do a small jump.
    
    S-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This groove is similar to the Extra mode from the King of Fighters 
    series, as well as the original SNK-Groove from the Original Capcom 
    vs. SNK. 
    
    The Super Gauge is filled by Charging, Pressing the HP and HK 
    simultaneously.  The Character will begin charging up their powers 
    and their gauge will start increasing.  Note that the character 
    cannot move or perform any attacks whilst doing this.  When the Bar 
    is full, the character is slightly stronger as well as being able to 
    do a Level 1 Super Combo.  Note that the bar will start decreasing 
    once it reaches the maximum and the opportunity to perform Super 
    combos will end when the bar is empty.
    
    When the Character takes enough damage, the Vitality Gauge will begin 
    flashing.  At this point the Character can do unlimited Level 1 Super 
    moves, and if the Super Gauge is also full, a Level 3, MAX Super 
    Combo.
    
    Run- Tap Forward or Back Twice to run towards the enemy.  
    
    Tactical Recovery- When Knocked down, press all 3 Punch Buttons to 
    delay your character getting up.
    
    Counter Attack- While blocking, immediately tap Forward + MP+MK to 
    perform a counterattack.  Note that it requires 1 level of the Super 
    Gauge to perform this move.
    
    Dodge- Press LP and LK simultaneously to do a quick dodge animation. 
    The character does not move, but has the same properties as the roll.
    
    Small Jump- Tap Up, or any Up Directional to do a small jump.
    
    N-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This Groove is similar to the Advance Mode from the King of Fighters.  
    The character can perform Super combos when they have 'stock.'
    
    The super Gauge is filled by attacking.  When full, the Super gauge 
    will reset but a Counter will appear in the box next to it, 
    indicating the character now as 'stock.'  The Character can perform 
    as many Level 1 super Combos as there are number of stock.  
    
    The character can 'Power MAX' by pressing HP and HK together.  It 
    will cost a single stock unit, but the character will become more 
    powerful.  In addition, MAX level moves can be performed.
    
    Run- Tap Forward or Back Twice to run towards the enemy.  
    
    Safe Fall- Press All Three Punch Buttons whilst landing to recover on 
    the ground.
    
    Rolling- Press LP and LK simultaneously to perform a moving dodge, 
    which can pass through most Special and Super moves, as well as the 
    opponent.  
    
    Counter Attack- While blocking, immediately tap Forward + MP+MK to 
    perform a counterattack.  Note that it requires 1 level of the Super 
    Gauge to perform this move.
    
    Small Jump- Tap Up, or any Up Directional to do a small jump.
    
    K-Groove:
    ---------
    
    This groove is he most similar to that of Samurai Spirits (Showdown.)  
    the gauge fills up as the character gets hit and receives damage or 
    performing Just Defense.  When the gauge fills up, the character will 
    be in Rage MAX mode, which allows the character to perform MAX Super 
    combos as well as dealing more damage.  Note that the bar will start 
    decreasing once it reaches the maximum and MAX mode will end when the 
    bar is empty.
    
    Just Defense- Tap Back right before the enemy makes contact with 
    their hit.  If done successfully, the character will take no Guard 
    damage as well as gain some vitality.  The character will also 
    recovery sooner and be able to counterattack.
    
    Run- Tap Forward or Back Twice to run towards the enemy.  
    
    Tactical Recovery- When Knocked down, press all 3 Punch Buttons to 
    delay your character getting up.
    
    Small Jump- Tap Up, or any Up Directional to do a small jump.
    
    =================
    IV. General Moves
    =================
    
    Standing-
    *********
    
    Light Punch- A left hand, quick jab.  Comes out as quick as you can 
    mash the button.  Combos into Power-Dunk and other normal attacks.
    
    Medium Punch- Right, Hooked punch.  Somewhat slower than light punch, 
    and does not combo.  Becomes punch to the gut upclose, which can 
    combo into other move.
    
    Hard Punch- A backhanded smash.  Same range as other punches.  
    Becomes a two-hit gut punch that is linked in of many of his combos
    
    Light Kick- Quick forward roundhouse to the midsection.  Not as fast 
    as light punch, but good as a poke.  Becomes a knee to the midsection 
    up close.  Does not combo unless it is upclose.
    
    Medium Kick- A sidekick to the chest.  Has good range and same 
    recovery time as light kick.  A good poke but only combos if up 
    close.  
    
    Hard Kick- A leaping tornado kick to the midsection.  Takes a while 
    to come out, but recovers right after the kick.  Most of the delay 
    comes from the leaping twist.  Becomes high kick to the face up 
    close, but there is a slight recovery so it cannot combo.
    
    Jumping-
    ********
    
    Light Punch- A flying chop downwards.  Good for light punch jamming 
    combos.  Pretty short range though.
    
    Medium Punch- A flying punch downwards.  Not very high priority.
    
    Hard Punch- Same as Medium punch, but does more damage and slightly 
    higher priority.
    
    Light Kick- A stretched kick upwards, similar to Kyo's Shiki 75 Kai, 
    but hits only once.  Since it aims upwards, it cannot hit grounded 
    opponents very well.  Somewhat good for meeting opponents that are 
    jumping in without attack.
    
    Medium Kick- A weird looking kick.  Turns body slightly so back leg 
    hits.  Attack comes out for a short duration and has a weird hit 
    angle.  Useful for air opponents really.
    
    Hard Kick- While Jumping Straight Up- A down angled side kick, useful 
    for air countering.  Has most range of all Air attacks.  Great angle 
    for hitting grounded opponents, but don't expect to win any air 
    battles with this.  
    
    Crouching-
    **********
    
    Light Punch- A very fast punch the crotch region.  Moves as fast as 
    you can jam the button.  Cancelable into many moves.  Standard crouch 
    punch similar to many characters.
    
    Medium Punch- A slow right punch.  Combos into punch-based special 
    moves.  
    
    Hard Punch-A stronger version of the crouching medium punch.  Comes 
    out at same speed too.  Only different is that it can be changed into 
    an uppercut.
    
    Light Kick- Quick kick to the ankles.  Moves as fast as you can jam 
    the button, and can be cancelled.  Looks just like Kyo's.
    
    Medium Kick- A low kick from the back leg.  Does not combo and has 
    some delay.  Quite good range though.
    
    Hard Kick- An extended Sweep.  Fast enough to be a good poke, but has 
    recovery time.  It hits at knee level, so it can catch some people 
    off guard.  A good counter though, since it comes out very quickly.
    
    ================
    V. Special Moves
    ================
    
    Terry has quite well balanced moves.  They can double as offensive 
    and defensive moves, making him a versatile character.  His Rising 
    Tackle is the charge version though.
    
    Command Moves:
    --------------
    
    Uppercut DF+HP
    An uppercut from crouch stance.  Similar to many characters, and used 
    as a cheap and basic anti-air.  
    
    Throws:
    -------
    
    Punch..thing (B or F+HP)
    Terry Grabs the opponent and does an uppercut knocking them away.
    
    Shoulder Throw (B or F+HK)
    Terry does a shoulder throw.
    
    Special Moves:
    --------------
    
    Power Wave - (QCF+P)
    Generic ground based projectile.  Looks similar to the Repukken.  
    Speed increases as punch button strength increases.  Good for zoning, 
    and of course, can be easily punished if done up close.  The wave is 
    somewhat large, reaching up to chest level of Terry.
    
    Burn Knuckle - (QCB+P)
    A fast, dashing punch.  Punch strength determines distance, where 
    stronger punches travel further but have a longer start up delay.  
    Travels extremely fast, but open to punishment if blocked.  The CPU 
    Abuses this move, following the LP Power wave.  It can catch up to a 
    LP power wave, and has a slight invincibility frame right at start 
    that can pass through ground projectiles.  The LP can be used to 
    punish or counter as well.
    
    Rising Tackle - (Charge D, Then Up+P)
    A REALLY weird looking move; Terry flips upside down(!) while 
    performing a spinning lariat.  It has a similarly weird hit range, 
    since he moves up legs first.  As such it is possible to beat him, 
    but you have to hit his body and avoid his flailing arms.  Can be 
    used as a good combo ender.  It's offensive ability has been weakened 
    since it became a charge move, but it is still a good surprise to 
    pull out.
    
    Crack Shoot - (QCB+K)
    A leaping crescent kick, similar to Kyo's R.E.D kick.  The kick 
    button used determines the vertical height and horizontal distance 
    the move travels.  The attack forms an "arc" that counts as a hit 
    zone.  It comes out quickly but take a while to land, having a 
    slightly long recovery time.  It comes out fast though, so it is a 
    good anti-air.  It can be comboed into, but it won't actually hit as 
    a combo ender.  
    
    Power Dunk - (DPM+K)
    A rising shoulder charge ending with a punch downwards.  Basically 
    the combination of his power charge and power punk into a single 
    move.  He will do the downwards punch regardless of the first 
    shoulder charge hitting, so it can leap over projectiles and 
    knockdown the opponent.  However if it misses it can be quite 
    punishable.  As usual, the Kick button used determines the arc 
    distance of the move.  It an be comboed into, so it is my guess that 
    it was designed to be a combo ender.
    
    ===================================
    VI. Super Moves/Desperation Attacks
    ===================================
    
    Power Geyser -                                       (QCB, DB, F+P)
    "Powahhhh Gayi-zahhhhhh"                             
    
    Do it QCB, HCF+P. Terry slams his fist into the ground, and a geyser 
    of energy erupts forth.  The strength of button used determines the 
    number of geysers that appear, where HP does 3, MP does 2, and LP 
    does 1.  Unfortunately, even the HP version only goes slightly more 
    than half-screen, so it isn't as powerful as it's KoF incarnation.  
    Nonetheless the horizontal range has increased quite a lot.  It 
    reaches to the top of screen, so it's the ultimate zoning and 
    defensive move.  The geysers come up right next to each other, so it 
    is impossible to roll through or jump over. 
    
    Buster Wolf -                                            (QCF,QCF+K)
    "Ah Yue Ah-Kay?  Bustah Worlff!"
    
    Straight from Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Terry does a windup Burn 
    Knuckle which ends with an eruption of forward angled energy around 
    him as he connects.  Similar in a sense of Rock's Shine knuckle, it 
    comes out somewhat slower though.  It is a great counter for whiffed 
    moves though, but has extreme vulnerability if you whiff as well.  
    Unlike his CvS version, it follows with the second part regardless if 
    the fist hits.  As usual the button used determines how far he 
    travels.  Pretty safe if blocked though, since he gets pushed back a 
    lot. 
    
    ==================
    VII. General Notes
    ==================
    
    Terry undergoes many changes in each game, so it is expected that 
    this Terry is also different.  He is quite powerful though, and KoF 
    or Garou players should be quite comfortable using him.  
    
    ================
    VIII. Strategies
    ================
    
    Terry is a well balanced character.  His moves are interesting in a 
    sense, since they can be used in any mode, both offense and defense, 
    giving him quite a bit of flexibility.
    
    Versus;
    
    Shotokans (Gouki,Ken,Ryu)
    -------------------------
    
    Most of them still rely on the fireball/dragon punch trap.  With the 
    onset of rolling however, their game now includes some offense to 
    counter rolling.  Try to counter their fireball from full screen with 
    your Power Wave, and Power Dunk if close.  Time it carefully though, 
    since they can Dragon punch you right out of it.  Their hurricane 
    kick can be punished with a power geyser.  The Burn Knuckle is 
    somewhat vulnerable since their projectile is not ground based.
    
    Geese Howard
    ------------
    
    Terry's nemesis, and Rock's father.  A master Geese player is damn 
    hard to beat, but then again Geese is actually harder than most 
    people think to master.  He is a defensive character, keeping you 
    away with his Repukkens and Shinpukens, as well all his other moves 
    (basically.)  His normal attacks are powerful and high priority, so 
    it is all the offense he needs.  His Raging storm is actually 50% 
    damage worth of reason not to jump in, aside from his Atemi Nage 
    counters.  Never do a projectile when he is fully charged (super bar) 
    since his Deadly Rave goes though projectiles.  Try to confuse his 
    counters and use hit and run tactics.  Up close and personal with 
    Geese is suicide... unless you are using an overpowered (i.e 
    Capcom)character.
    
    Rock Howard
    -----------
    
    A powerful character, pupil of Terry.  He has Terry's Rising Tackle 
    and modified versions of the Burn Knuckle.  Couple that with Geese's 
    Repukken's, counters and command grabs and you get a hard fight.  His 
    shine knuckle, which is his version of the Buster Wolf, is EXTREMELY 
    fast, so try not to whiff moves.  Jumping in against Rock is not 
    advisable, since he has 26649908 ways of countering.  Try to confuse 
    his counters and hit as hard as you can.  
    
    Vice
    ----
    
    Vice is a grappling character, so you need to be careful when using 
    Kyo.  Her de-cide can hit you from far away, and her moves can take 
    you to priority school up close.  Burn Knuckle is a good counter 
    against her MISSED de-cide.. otherwise she can grab you out of it!
    
    Yagami Iori
    -----------
    
    Many KoF veterans will wind up using Iori as well.  Although he is 
    toned down as well, he is still a formidable force to contend with.  
    His Yami Barai is easier to counter, since it is ground based.  
    However, try to be sparse with your air attacks since his Ya Otome 
    still has anti-air capabilities.  Iori also has lethal combos so try 
    not to leave an opening.  His defense and offense are equally 
    powerful, from his Aoi Hanna to Oni Yaki.  Most likely he will be on 
    full berserk move, pressuring like an US-Sino Foreign Policy.  Try to 
    leave some room, since he can clean your clock up close.  Try to keep 
    him away, but NEVER use your Burn Knuckle.  He recovers much faster 
    than you think, and can open the entire Campbell's canned selection 
    of whoop ass before you know it.
    
    Yamazaki Ryuji
    --------------
    
    The King of keep away is more or less the same from his KoF 
    incarnations.  His snake arms can keep you at bay, as they are 
    difficult to even roll past.  His S&M move counters almost any move 
    you smack him with, so sweep him or throw him (with HK.)  Similar to 
    Rock, you have to try to make him miss one of his snake arms or whiff 
    an S&M move, countering with a hard hitting move or combo.  You could 
    nail him with a power geyser though.
