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.

Why Geese?
-------------
  The big guy is now playable and you can bit he is so difficult to to play as
than before... so few will use him. But of course I choose him because he is my
man and the best ever.

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

---------------
Stage:
---------------
  The same usual cool stage that we used to see from the sultan of Southtown,
Geese. The Japanese armors and demon statues cover the stage and in the first
round will you see a big japanese word drawn in in the corner of each side. And
in the second round, you will notice they change... some cool drawings for
Geese. Coolness is not enough for Geese... more... more...

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

-----------------
Background Music:
-----------------
  Geese Ni Katakori, of course. The cool and very cool BGM from the bad@$$,
Geese Howard. You will like it so much. Simply put in two words, "the best."

Ending:
-------
  Hopper and Billy were looking with surprise at Geese, when he walked to his
favorite chair. Then stood down on it... while they were watching, suddenly...
Geese vanished from the place and left an important scroll for Billy.

Strategy Section:
-----------------
  Once again with another F.A.Q. for Geese Howard. Geese makes he sweet return,
but not as before. He is playable now and they made him way weaker than his
last version in Real Bout Fatal Fury Special. But that is for the best! I mean
how can he be really playable with that version? He will eat them all alive!
So, now with Geese again but way harder to use than before.

  If you are going to play him then keep in mind you are going to something
very damaging and combination attacks to knock your opponent out. So, you are
up to his standing A, B, C for combos and to cancel them into Special Moves and
Super Moves. The trick is to not give your opponent a distance to breathe. Keep
attacking with crouching C and cancel it into a Reppu Ken. It is very handy. As
for the down/forward + A is for anti-air attacks. But you have to use it a
little bit eariler before the opponent gets close to you.

  His distance C can be used from time to time to confuse your opponent and
change your pattern. And poke with his As more than Bs because they do not have
any lag or delay. They come out fast and stun your opponent greatly. If you are
going for air attacks then go for the C the most but if you have to use A or B
then be sure to connect them with the C. Example: "Jump A, C, standing C, Reppu
Ken." See how easily done? Remember, his air C is good against air attack,
combination attacks and for a decent damage. Also, it has a good range... so
why use anything else if this does it all? Pretty much not complicated... just
use the high jump + C for combos and low jump + C for combos and against air
attacks.

  His Reppu Ken still can be used to confuse your opponent or to make him jump
so that you could use the Raising Storm. He recovers fast after he performs it,
but there is still some lag... be careful. His Double Reppu Ken is good for
combos and to stun your opponent, just do it when you are very close, do not
worry... there won't be anything surprising to do by your opponent. Try not to
use it from a distance and if you have to, then use it when the opponent is
felling down. But as for the Reppu Ken, you can use it, but be very careful
when you are up to use it. Some combo demons (like Terry) might give you a hard
time if you miss anything or do any mistake. You see, you are already a combo
demon and your character is great, but that does not mean you will rule over.

  You should know by now that Geese can counter the air attacks and some
Special Moves and Super Special Moves with his Upper Body Slam move. So, does
that mean you can always use it when the opponent jumps at you? No, of course,
stud. Because this move has its weak point, now it is not worth it when Billy
jumps and then you do it, then he does nothing but when he lands he performs a
demon combo on you! See! So, you need to use it from time to time... not really
guessing, but more of a mind game. You do many confusing things and give a hard
time to your opponent and when he is about to jump, you will surely think that
he got some air to attack you to give you some hard time, here do fast Upper
Body Slam as it will counter his air attack! But when the character jumps a lot
then change your pattern. Like down/forward + A, jump C, backward twice then
distance C. But when the character does a move and you are pretty sure that the
Upper Body Slam can counter his or her attack, then there is no chance for
guessing here... fast do it.

  So, you need to know if you can counter this or that Move, Super or Hidden
Super in order to master this Special Move perfectly. As for his Mid Hard Push,
there a big advantage to both, you and your opponent. If you miss you will eat
a big combo, if you get your opponent with the Special Move, you will eat him
or her alive. So, how to master this move in order to be good with it? If (that
is a BIG if) you see anyone mashing or giving you a hard time by punching and
kicking you from different ways like crouching attacks then distances attack or
standing attacks, then you can do it... but not just do it, wait for the right
time and when your mind tells that the opponent is about to hit, hit! No, I am
not being sarcastic, I sometimes do mistakes, but most of the times I do
well... and pretty well. You just need to do it in the right time, there is
nothing to lose most of the time. Geese will push his opponent to the other way
and stun him for a big combo, so never dare to miss that good chance, eh? Or
you could use it when you know that the next Normal Attack that the opponent
will do cannot be connected to any combo or what-so-ever damaging. Here, you
will have nothing to lose by performing the Special Move.

  Same thing goes for his Below-The-Belt Blast move. It is just that is Special
Move is not as important as the other Counter Moves. Keep that in mind, ladies
and gentlemen. Dunk Toss, sweet sweet Dunk Toss that is very known to
everybody. If you are up to something cool then Dunk Toss is the right answer.
He throws the opponent far away with a cool evil pose. But remember that Dunk
Toss is now a Special Move, so you can make good use of it. This is a good
range for the move to come out... connect it after Painful Punch, C then Dunk
Toss. It will be great. Speaking of Painful Punch, it is good for combos and
when the character defends low a lot! Use it when the opponent in a crouching
position. It has a lag. So, use it when you really have to or from time to
time.

  His Divine Punishment is just great for an extra damage after every monster
combo you do. If you want your opponent near you then you are free to use his
Kosatsu Sho or Fatal Blow Bopper. But if you still want to throw your opponent
far away then you can also use his Mauling Tiger Crunch. Very cool throws,
really!

  Screw Kick is there to cancel it to many good things (check the Combo Section
for further demonstration). You could continue D after it then Reppu Ken or
Reppu, or Raising (Fake Moves) or cancel the Special Attack to Dunk Toss. Or
why not to HOLY GATES? ^_^ When the opponent thinks he will be hit by the
Special Attack, you instead cancel it to Holy Gates before it hit the opponent.
Screw Kick can make you get very close to your opponent. So, it is worth
trying. Also, if you time the Get Lost with the air attacks, you could easily
rule the match because it now easier than before (Fatal Fury Special)! More
over, you can connect it to good combos... so you are now up to something
fishy, eh? ^_^

  Again, they made his Raising Storm a little bit weaker than Real Bout Fatal
Fury and below. But changed the command for it for those who complain a lot how
his Raising Storm is hard to do. They had to change it not because of that,
actually it is because they changed the shape of it. Now the pillars are
showing only in the forward position where he stands, so he is wide open in the
back. But not to worry, he still can rule with is. You just need to play a mind
game and do it a little bit eariler before the opponent jumps. Still, some
delay and lag, but nothing much to lose since he still has many many many other
good options. But I tell you, it is still damaging.

  Holy mama papa dada sasa! So, what was that? Ahem! Holy Gates by the far is
the coolest Hidden Super Move I have ever seen in the game... it is so cool and
so easy to perform (for the easy guys). It is so damaging and has a good range!
You can cancel anything to trick your opponent and then do it... like
cancelling Screw Kick to Holy Gates! The opponent will surely scream: "OUCH!"
Gotta wonder what's written on the background!

  As for his sweeeeeeet Deadly Rave, I highly recommand using it along with the
Raising Storm. It has good invinciblity and damage. It is so good for combos.
They realized their mistake that they should have put this Hidden Super Move
since Fatal Fury 3! Well, the move does not make the opponent dizzy as it was
back in Art of Fighting 2, but still, it is still damaging and good for
combination attacks! I mean this is REALLY good for combination attacks! You
must check the "Combos Section" to know the best ways to use the Deadly Rave.

  When the opponent goes to the backstage a lot, always make him feel sorry.
How? Do something very very very damgaing so that he or she won't ever think of
such thing! You are already a monster, so how about becoming a demon?

  I did not really write many things new in the "Strategy Section" because most
of them are from Real Bout and Real Bout Fatal Fury Special. They just add few
things to mention. That is about it, ladies and gentlemen. Geese is so much fun
and good to use. But you just need to love or like the guy at least if you
really want to use him perfectly. Best of luck...!

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:

======
Tariq:
======
Q: Why the hell did SNK remove his Shippu Ken?
-
A: Because they wanted him to be imperfect, ant brain!

==========
BBBagagoa:
==========
Q: Some of the combos are repeated with "little" changes, why?
-
A: Guys like you do not seem to read what I said before I wrote the combos...
let me say it 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."

  So, I think by now you know why I ALWAYS do that! Simply put, I do not want
anyone to ask; "Can this or that be connected with this or that?"

=======
Salman:
=======
Q: Don't ask why I E-Mailed you, because I know that it is the first time I do
something like that. I have got a question, Al-Shehab. Now do you dare to say
he is on top of everybody?
-
A: No, I will not ask why you E-Mailed me, because it would be stupid, silly
Salman! ^_^

  About your question... no, he can be on top of everybody if used well. He
could be very deadly... and I mean DEADLY. His Dunk Toss and Holy Gates are
very damn useful and helpful, they change the tables in no time. I will not ask
did anybody beat me when I chose him, but I will say you must always believe
that there is no weak or strong character... there is only a hard character to
use and an easy character to use. In the end, everything depends on the
player... an expert or a retarded player!

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

---------------
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:

1)To SNK for this great game.
2)To Gamefaqs.
3)To all Geese's fans.
4)To all my friends for the encouragement.
