-------
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.
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. 

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

Goenitz: You vain fools... oh, a fine wind blows. My
time has come.

called away... to heaven.

a month since The King of Fighters'96. I'm back to
training every day and I'm kicking butt. Mai is as

The legendary Mr. Karate is here!
Ryo: What are you doing, Dad?
Yuri: Yeah, Dad! What's the deal?
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 why you must keep training.
To understand... hey, where...? They got away!

silly tales of hereditary destinies. 
Leona: But, what should I do...?

Ralf & Clark: Aaah... 

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

Ralf: OW! YOU...
Clark: How about that!
Leona: :(

Ralf: Hey, Clark. I'm sorry. You were right.

-Kensou gave Chin a hard punch on his head for playing

Chin: Goo! W, what! When I was so fast asleep! And you

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

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

-------
Ending:
-------
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.

GWAAAAH!

Vice: Hey, Yagami, take it easy! 
Mature: Oh, my God... I, it's the... "Riot of the

-------
Ending:
-------
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-

Geese: We'll rest ourselves up, then bust some heads!

Name of the Team: Edit Team
-----------------

-------------
Team Members:
-------------
Choose Three Different Fighters (how about Geese,
Goenitz and Iori? ^_^)

-------
Ending: 
-------
Goenitz: What a surprise... eh, Kagura? You guys
really know your stuff! but you will never seal off
the Orochi Power again. Give it up now, while you
still can. 
Kagura: Don't flatter yourself, ugly. The Orochi Power
is as good as locked away. 

Goenitz: You vain fools... oh, a fine wind blows. My
time has come.
Fighter: 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...!

Name of the Team: ???

-------------
Team Members:
-------------
1)Kyo Kusanagi
2)Iori Yagami
3)Chizuru Kagura

-------
Ending: 
-------
Goenitz: I guess I understimated you. I never
thought... but this isn't the end for you. 

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...

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, Goenitz
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.

hard work. The King of Fighters lives on no matter
what... "Those Were The Good days."
