    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
    unbeatable...
    
      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
    lot. 
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++
    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 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 dies...
    
      You can also go backward with the match begin 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
    anything. 
    
      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 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 the 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 hard... 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 fighting games fan, 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 character not playable?
    
    A: SNK guys were may be thinking of idiotic ideas
    first, then they realized their error. 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 FAQ
    about it?
    
    A: Old is gold. And good games never get old. I am
    actually writing a FAQ 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 him 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 have.

    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.
