Burning Knuckle is Terry's forward Side Special Move. In a first for the Smash Bros. series, this move occupies the Forward+B slot exclusively, with Crack Shoot using Backward+B.


Terry leaps forward with a fist outstretched covered in blue flames. Inputting a button combo allows for a stronger attack.


Burning Knuckle has been part of Terry's moveset from the very start of the Fatal Fury series. In the first game, judicious use of this move could overcome the normally very difficult Geese Howard.

In Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Terry's young protege Rock Howard possessed a similar attack called Shining Knuckle as one of his Desperation Moves. In the same game, Terry would instead simply shout "Burning!" instead of the move's name.
