Geese did regenerate and now is the old ruthless ruler of Southtown. He is way stronger now than before and so cooler. You will surely like him once you see his Raising Storm. ======================================================= --------------- Stage: --------------- Geese Tower. Yup, you will love it so much. It is open and there is no corner in the stage. So, do not think of combination that can only be done in the corner. Just see the demon status and the town in the background, then you will understand the coolness of his stage. ======================================================= ----------------- Background Music: ----------------- Two BGMs. First, the same evilish one that you do not want to miss that was in Fatal Fury 3, Geese Ni Shouyu . It speaks of many things... selfish, greedy, badness, hate, ruthlessness, carelessness and more. The second one that you will not be able to listen to unless you fight Geese the CPU and beat him the first round... you will listen to GEESE NI KATAKORI, remix but very damn cool... don't miss it, stud! Both BGMs are remix. ======================================================= -------------------- Character Background -------------------- The secret scrolls of Qin, they are all in the hands of Geese Howard. one day, he called his subordinate, Billy to get rid of the secret scrolls. Geese: After all, the scrolls teach me nothing. They say the most powerful human gets possession of the scrolls. But, it may be just a legend. Billy: But why do you want to get rid of them? Geese: You know Jin brothers. They want the secret scrolls for some reason. I still don't know why. Well, any way, just get rid of them. Billy: Well, I feel there is no need for you to be afraid of them. Geese: I am not afraid of them! I am telling you to get rid of them not to repeat the same mistake. Two men are talking in a room on the top of the Geese Tower looking down Southtown. Having a glass in his hand, Geese stands up from a chair and walks to a window. Geese: By the way, have you made arrangements for the King of Fighters? Billy: Yes, everything is progressing steadily. Geese looks out from the window with an audacious expressin on his face. Geese: Heh, heh, I will show them again who the real ruler is. ======================================================= ------- Intros: ------- Terry: GEESE!

Geese gave the imposter his back. After getting down, he as usual... with a wonderful look on his face, he looked out from the window at his town with an audacious expression on his face. Then as always, he gained money from the crimes and dirty business with an open smile... and Billy was always there to guard him. After he finished his business, he started to shave and the important men came all around him to talk with him while he is shaving and smoking at the same time, but Hopper, Ripper and Billy did not make them cross the line, and pushed them back. ======================================================= ---------------- Special Endings: ---------------- ================== Defeated By Terry: ================== In the very end of the fight between Geese and Terry... Geese: RAISING.... ahhhh... uhu. Terry: TRIPLE GEYSERRRRR... Geese: AHHHHHHHHHHAAAGH!!!! Terry: GEEEEEEEEESEEEEE!!!! While Geese is falling, Terry manages to hold Geese's hand. But the hatred and pride made Geese so ruthless to refuse Terry's help. He slaps Terry's hand away. Geese: Hmph... WAH, HAH, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Terry: ..... Geese loudly laughs at Terry while he is falling... looking so coldly at Terry for thinking that he (Geese) would let him help him.

This year Geese gets pretty strong after learning the Qin scrolls and boy you do not really want to miss with the combo demon, Geese Howard. On with it... 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. Always go for the Sippu Ken and forget a little bit about the Double Shippu Ken because the Shippu Ken lets you control Geese while you are in the air after performing the Special Move. Unlike the Double Shippu Ken, it does not give you give that, but instead... it makes you go backward. Do the Shippu Ken when the opponent is about to get up or when you are really lost against air attacks, you could use it. A very good thing to rely on but not always. You should know by now that Geese can counter the air attacks and some Special Moves and Super Special Moves with his Upper Hit 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 Terry 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 Hit 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 Hit 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 Hit, 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 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 hit his opponent 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 byu performing the Special Move. It seems that his Evil Spirit Slash is now way better than before, eh folks? Well the one with the B button can be used when you want to do it any time. You will not be wide open even if the opponent blocks it, but never do it with the C button. Instead, do the one with the C button when you are up to combos. It is so damaging and so helpful to do Divine Punishment after it. Look for the "Combos Section" for a further demonstration. His Divine Punishment is just great for an extra damage after every monster combo you do. Anvil Bash, sweet sweet Anvil Bash that is very known to everybody. If you are up to something cool then Anvil Bash is the right answer. He throws the opponent far away with a cool evil pose. 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! Ahh, is there something more powerful, great, useful and damaging than his Raising Storm? Is there? Is there? His Raising Storm this year gets its respect from everyone... so useful and helpful. When you see the opponent jumps fast do it and forget that the opponent will hit you or land and then wait for you lag and kick you hard. No, this time the Raising Storm comes out very fast. I tell you, it does not need the screen to stop or anything. It just comes out very fast and has a decent range. If you did it late, even when the opponent defends it, it will take five hits at least and you will recover from the Super Move in no time. The opponent will not have anything much to do. And if he or she goes down or backward by the D button, it will hit them for sure. It is not that hard to perform as most of the guys think, just practice and you will master it in no time. Use can use it against the air attacks, the moves that unleash toward you or anything. If you master this Super Move, you will own so much in this game, so much that words cannot say how...! His Hidden Super Move, Thunder Break, is worse than the Raising Storm. It comes out so slow and has a big delay and lag. The Thunder attacks come down by random, so when the opponent jumps and you perform it, do not be so sure the first thunder attack will always be in the forward position where Geese stands! It may comes backward or in the middle... completely random. So, in the Combo Section there are some combos involve the Thunder Break super. Do not think it does not connect to the combos when "what I said does have a meaning." You and your luck where the thunder attacks first. I will be very much good with the Raising Storm as it is way better than the Thunder Break. The Thunder Break has one good thing and that is, COMPLETE DAMAGE! Always keep that in mind, ladies and gentlemen! 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. Finally, 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! 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...! ======================================================= ---------------- Combos Section: ---------------- 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.

Just because Terry managed to make him fall again, does not mean anything. Geese fell first in Fatal Fury and even said to be dead, but so easily was alive and regained his town. So, I cannot say he is dead just because of that. I need a better proof. Until I see more, I could change my mind... Geese lives on no matter how many times that hat boy tries to knock him down. ===== URWN: ===== Q: Isn't this the strongest Geese that has ever been in any game? - A: No, this is nothing to the Nightmare Geese in Real Bout Fatal Fury Special. That one is a real nightmare. No matter how strong Krauser really is, Geese there owns, eats and kicks him anytime, anywhere, any place. Smiply put, he is the best. ====== Adnan: ====== Q: I have a little comment about what you said about Geese and Krauser. How come you said all that and you know that SNK made Krauser better than Geese in the storyline? - A: Good question. Krauser really was stronger in the storyline (that's in Fatal Fury 2 though), but never meant to be so in the gamewise. Gamewise, Geese ents him alive... and that is what SNK really missed. They tried to make Krauser something new and shine, but he was not as cool as Geese. He hardly managed to butt in four Fatal Fury games, one in Pocket, one in Playstaion and one in King of Fighters'96. Unlike Geese... needless to say, Krauser is somehow an okay character compared to the load of trash bosses in the King of Fighters series (from 97 to 2002) We need someone evilish and devilish like Geese. Not someone who fights for his pride, to be the strongest and his own fame like Krauser. In other words, we need a villain, not a boring German wanna-be. ======================================================= --------------- 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. "Now come and fight, Terry Bogard" Quote from Geese Howard --------------- 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. 5)To Vlad Fischert for correcting some mistakes. ======================================================= Real Bout Fatal Fury is Copyright SNK Crop.
