'''Terry Bogard''' is one of the major characters in SNK multiverse, particularly fighting game series. He is the main protagonist of the ''Fatal Fury'' series and the eponymous hungry wolf of the series' Japanese title, ''Garou Densetsu'' (''餓狼伝説'', lit. Legend of the Hungry Wolf.) He is part of the original ''Fatal Fury'' continuity which also shares a timeline with the ''Art of Fighting'' (''龍虎の拳'' ''Ryuko no Ken'', ''lit. Dragon Tiger Fist'') series. Terry is also one of the major supporting characters in a different timeline depicted in ''The King of Fighters'' series where he is the core leader of the Fatal Fury Team. Said team usually features his brother Andy and their Muay Thai battler friend Joe Higashi.
+
He joined ''[[Super Smash Bros. Ultimate]]'' as the fourth fighter in [[Fighters Pass|Fighters Pass Volume 1]] and the fifth [[Downloadable Content (SSBU)|downloadable character]] overall.

==Character Description==
Terry is a friendly and charismatic fighter who never loses his friendly nature to save anyone from the irredeemably evil threats. He's happy to accept a challenge no matter who offers one up.
+
Terry is an American martial artist hailing from the fictional South Town and is often depicted as a fierce fighter while also being a friendly, charismatic, and cheerful man. He harbors no ill will towards anyone except for the truly evil. His fighting style is a mix of several, including kickboxing, kung fu, and Hakkyokuseiken, a fictional art in the ''Fatal Fury'' universe created by his master Tung Fu Rue. Outside of fighting, Terry occupies his time by playing video games, partaking in street basketball matches, taking care of his pet monkey Ukee, and hanging out with his girlfriend "Blue" Mary Ryan.
   
He and his brother Andy were orphans who survived on the streets of Southtown until they were adopted by Jeff Bogard. When the two turned 10, however, they witnessed their father's death at the hands of Southtown criminal kingpin Geese Howard, and vowed to train to overthrow Geese and avenge their father. While Andy went to train in Japan, Terry remained in America to train on the streets, while also learning martial arts skills from his mentor, Tung Fu Rue. Eventually when Terry and Andy were in their late teens, Geese hosted the ''King of Fighters'' tournament, which Terry entered along with Andy and their new friend Joe Higashi, a Muay Thai martial artist.
+
=== '''''Fatal Fury'' series''' ===
  +
Terry and his younger brother Andy grew up as orphans in the dangerous streets of South Town. They were soon adopted by Jeff Bogard, a student of martial arts master Tung Fu Rue. As revealed in the opening of ''Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition'', when Terry was 10 years old he witnessed the murder of Jeff at the hands of notorious crime lord Geese Howard, who was another student of Tung Fu Rue's and a former friend of Jeff's. Fueled by their need of vengeance, the Bogards spent the following decade learning how to fight; Andy traveled to Japan to learn ninjutsu while Terry stayed to fight through the mean streets of South Town and learn from Tung Fu Rue.
   
The tournament ended with Terry defeating Geese, who seemingly fell to his death from his high rise building Geese Tower. A year later, the German warrior Wolfgang Krauser hosted a worldwide version of the tournament and proved to be much more challenging an opponent to Terry, who nonetheless won the battle. Some time later, the very much alive Geese re-emerged to take control of the Jin scrolls, a set of scrolls offering the secret of immortality that were held by the Jin twins. While opposing Geese along the way, Terry met his currently on-and-off again girlfriend "Blue" Mary Ryan. Terry was able to pacify the Jins and the ruthless criminal Ryuji Yamazaki, though Geese escaped with the scrolls and hosted one last tournament. Once again Terry won and sent Geese flying off of his tower. This time, Terry put aside his hatred to save his nemesis, but Geese swatted Terry's hand away and willingly fell to his demise. Some time after, Terry adopted Geese's son Rock Howard and trained him, in an effort to put the feud between him and Geese behind him.
+
The end of their decade of training leads into the events of '''''Fatal Fury: King of Fighters '''''(and its 3D remake '''''Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition'''''), where the brothers and their friend, Muay Thai champion Joe Higashi, enter the newly-organized King of Fighters tournament. They face off against a series of fierce competitors, including Brazilian nightclub owner Richard Meyer, heavyweight boxer Michael Max, Australian wrestler Raiden, party animal Duck King, Joe's rival Hwa Jai, and Geese's British right-hand man Billy Kane. The tournament's final opponent is Geese himself, where the player confronts him at the top of Geese Tower. The battle ends with Geese falling from his tower to his supposed demise below.
   
''Garou: Mark of the Wolves'' is the currently last mainline game in the ''Fatal Fury'' continuity thus far and features an older Terry wearing a vastly different outfit from his usual getup, including his Rising Tackle is inherited by a grown up Rock. A new city known as "Second South" has been established, and a new tournament called "Maximum Mayhem" is hosted by Kain R. Heinlein, a new generation crime lord who plains to make Second south an independent state and thrust it into chaos so people can appreciate "truly living" on the edge. Terry and Rock are invited to participate. It is later revealed that Kain is Geese howard's brother-in-law and thus Rock's uncle, and in order to learn more about his long lost mother, Rock joins Kain. Terry, surprised, accepts this and wishes Rock the best of luck on his journey. In his own ''MOTW'' arcade ending, Terry is somewhat troubled by Kain's words about humanity's true nature, but then decides that life is "all about heart" and remains optimistic for the future.
+
One year later, in '''''Fatal Fury 2''''' and '''''Fatal Fury Special''''', Geese's German half-brother, Wolfgang Krauser von Stroheim, gains control of the King of Fighters tournament and decides to bring it to the worldwide stage. Terry enters the tournament and is able to reach the finals, where he confronts and ultimately defeats Krauser. Along the way he meets and befriends some of the new competitors, including the ninja heiress Mai Shiranui and Korean Tae Kwon Do master Kim Kaphwan.
   
Terry is mostly a supporting character in the ''King of Fighters'' video game continuity as the leader of the "Fatal Fury" team. Said team usually features himself, Andy and Joe Higashi, but occasionally the team is joined by fellow veterans Blue Mary, the wrestler Tizoc the Griffon (also known as King of Dinosaurs) or the dance club master Duck King and the tae kwon do hero Kim Kaphwan who Terry had teamed up with in ''XI''. Terry is also a recurring playable character in the ''KOF'' series' own alternate continuity ''Maximum Impact'', which seems to combine most aspects of the ''KOF'' canon (Terry and Ryo Sakazaki being the same age) with the original ''Fatal Fury/Art of Fighting'' timeline (Geese being dead, Rock being old enough to participate)
+
Three years later, in '''''Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory''''', Terry and his friends are shocked to find out that Geese had survived his fall. This is due to him owning the Phoenix Scrolls, which are said to hold the secret to rapid healing. Geese returns to plan on obtaining the Jin scolls, which are said to hold the secret to immortality. Terry goes on to hunt him down and eventually manages to defeat Geese as well as the crazed fighter Ryuji Yamazaki. The game ends with Terry battling and prevailing over the keepers of the scrolls, twin brothers Jin Chonshu and Jin Chonrei, only to discover that Geese has stolen the scrolls and escaped.
   
While its not known if they've canonically met in their home continuity, Terry seems to have a friendly rivalry with Ryo Sakazaki, a Kyokugen master and protagonist of the ''Art of Fighting'' series, a prequel to ''Fatal Fury'', while in the ''King of Fighters'' series, they're well acquainted.
+
One year later, in '''''Real Bout Fatal Fury''''', a new King of Fighters tournament is held, which Terry and his allies compete in one final time. At the tournament's finals, he finds himself confronting Geese at the top of Geese Tower yet again. The battle ends much the same way as the first game, but Terry now attempts to save Geese before he falls off the tower. However, Geese denies his saving hand in an act of egotism, choosing to fall to his now permanent death. Soon afterwards, Terry encounters Geese's young son named Rock and realizes he is now orphaned (his mother having succumbed to an illness before the game's events). Terry decides to adopt Rock as a means of finally putting his feud with Geese behind and to raise him as his own son.

Seven years later, in the final entry of the series - '''''Garou: Mark of the Wolves''''', another King of Fighters tournament is held, this time hosted by Rock's uncle Kain R. Heinlein in the neighboring city of Second South Town. In actuality, Kain devises the tournament as means of luring a now grown-up Rock Howard to be under his control. Rock participates in the tournament alongside Terry upon hearing that his mother could still be alive, despite Terry's reluctance to let him compete - though he still wishes him the best of luck in the end when he decides to join with Kain, knowing he must let Rock choose his own path in life. In Terry's ending, Rock has left him in the aftermath of the tournament and is left to wander the streets of Second South Town while pondering Kain's parting words to him about the nature of humanity. He eventually comes to the conclusion that life is "all about heart" and Kain was wrong. Sometime after the events of ''Mark of the Wolves'', in the short OVA ''Garou Densetsu 15th Anniversary ~Memories of Stray Wolves~'', Terry meets up with Blue Mary and offers to help on a case she is working on while locating the whereabouts of Rock.

SNK's series of crossover fighting games take place on an alternate timeline, as many of the events that take place in ''Fatal Fury'' are largely ignored (such as Rock being raised by Terry despite Geese and Krauser still being alive).
  +
  +
Terry is one the few fighters to have partaken in all ''KOF'' games, beginning with '''''The King of Fighters '94''''' - though his role in the series is that of being the team captain of Team Fatal Fury and being a supporting character, as his intentions for joining the tournaments in the first place were his concerns with Geese's involvement. In '''''The King of Fighters '99''''', his role is expanded on a bit more as he fakes his death after staying behind during the collapse of NESTS's base and spends the next year tracking down the remaining members of NESTS who targeted Blue Mary. He later reemerges in '''''The King of Fighters 2000''''' to team up with her for that year's tournament and again in the following year in '''''The King of Fighters 2001'''''. He also has a bit more to do in '''''The King of Fighters XIV''''', joining to train and oversee the young newcomer Alice Nakata, his self-proclaimed biggest fan, as well as monitor Geese's whereabouts in the tournament.

  +
Terry also appears in the follow-up to ''The King of Fighters XIV'', being '''''SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy''''', though this time he has mysteriously been turned into a girl after being trapped in a pocket dimension alongside the rest of SNK's female fighters by Kukri. In Terry's ending, it is implied that this has all been a nightmare, as he also dreams of an alternate ending to ''Real Bout Fatal Fury'', where Rock emerges and kicks Terry off of Geese Tower. Before he can fall, Terry is awoken by Rock for breakfast time.
  +
  +
Several other characters from ''Fatal Fury'' have also taken part in some of the King of Fighters tournaments to fight alongside Terry as a part of Team Fatal Fury. These include (aside from Blue Mary and usual teammates Andy and Joe) the wrestler Tizoc from ''Garou: Mark of the Wolves'', who partakes in ''The King of Fighters 2003'', and Duck King, who partakes in ''The King of Fighters XI''. It is also in the ''KOF'' continuity where he runs into Ryo Sakazaki from ''Art of Fighting'', the prequel trilogy to ''Fatal Fury'', with whom he has a friendly rivalry with.

*Although SNK was known to create consoles, they were rather known as a ''private'' company and in their heyday, focused more on arcades and arcade games. Even before ''Art of Fighting'' and ''Fatal Fury'' were known to be given Super Nintendo releases, SNK was also known to release games for the NES, like ''Ikari Warriors'' and ''Crystalis'', before major activity in the video game industry like the "Console Wars" and economic competitiveness prompted SNK to capitalize into the mid 1990s, and even then, SNK was also known to still provide releases to the PlayStation and other consoles due to how their own consoles were infamously known to be exorbitantly expensive for the normal consumer despite (or because of) the much promised "arcade quality in your own home" that SNK advertised.

For fighter info, see Terry (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate).
Terry Bogard is the main protagonist of the Fatal Fury series and supporting character of The King of Fighters series, both from SNK.

He joined Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the fourth fighter in Fighters Pass Volume 1 and the fifth downloadable character overall.

Character DescriptionEdit

Terry is an American martial artist hailing from the fictional South Town and is often depicted as a fierce fighter while also being a friendly, charismatic, and cheerful man. He harbors no ill will towards anyone except for the truly evil. His fighting style is a mix of several, including kickboxing, kung fu, and Hakkyokuseiken, a fictional art in the Fatal Fury universe created by his master Tung Fu Rue. Outside of fighting, Terry occupies his time by playing video games, partaking in street basketball matches, taking care of his pet monkey Ukee, and hanging out with his girlfriend "Blue" Mary Ryan.

Fatal Fury series Edit

Terry and his younger brother Andy grew up as orphans in the dangerous streets of South Town. They were soon adopted by Jeff Bogard, a student of martial arts master Tung Fu Rue. As revealed in the opening of Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition, when Terry was 10 years old he witnessed the murder of Jeff at the hands of notorious crime lord Geese Howard, who was another student of Tung Fu Rue's and a former friend of Jeff's. Fueled by their need of vengeance, the Bogards spent the following decade learning how to fight; Andy traveled to Japan to learn ninjutsu while Terry stayed to fight through the mean streets of South Town and learn from Tung Fu Rue.

The end of their decade of training leads into the events of Fatal Fury: King of Fighters (and its 3D remake Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition), where the brothers and their friend, Muay Thai champion Joe Higashi, enter the newly-organized King of Fighters tournament. They face off against a series of fierce competitors, including Brazilian nightclub owner Richard Meyer, heavyweight boxer Michael Max, Australian wrestler Raiden, party animal Duck King, Joe's rival Hwa Jai, and Geese's British right-hand man Billy Kane. The tournament's final opponent is Geese himself, where the player confronts him at the top of Geese Tower. The battle ends with Geese falling from his tower to his supposed demise below.

One year later, in Fatal Fury 2 and Fatal Fury Special, Geese's German half-brother, Wolfgang Krauser von Stroheim, gains control of the King of Fighters tournament and decides to bring it to the worldwide stage. Terry enters the tournament and is able to reach the finals, where he confronts and ultimately defeats Krauser. Along the way he meets and befriends some of the new competitors, including the ninja heiress Mai Shiranui and Korean Tae Kwon Do master Kim Kaphwan.

Three years later, in Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory, Terry and his friends are shocked to find out that Geese had survived his fall. This is due to him owning the Phoenix Scrolls, which are said to hold the secret to rapid healing. Geese returns to plan on obtaining the Jin scolls, which are said to hold the secret to immortality. Terry goes on to hunt him down and eventually manages to defeat Geese as well as the crazed fighter Ryuji Yamazaki. The game ends with Terry battling and prevailing over the keepers of the scrolls, twin brothers Jin Chonshu and Jin Chonrei, only to discover that Geese has stolen the scrolls and escaped.

One year later, in Real Bout Fatal Fury, a new King of Fighters tournament is held, which Terry and his allies compete in one final time. At the tournament's finals, he finds himself confronting Geese at the top of Geese Tower yet again. The battle ends much the same way as the first game, but Terry now attempts to save Geese before he falls off the tower. However, Geese denies his saving hand in an act of egotism, choosing to fall to his now permanent death. Soon afterwards, Terry encounters Geese's young son named Rock and realizes he is now orphaned (his mother having succumbed to an illness before the game's events). Terry decides to adopt Rock as a means of finally putting his feud with Geese behind and to raise him as his own son.

Seven years later, in the final entry of the series - Garou: Mark of the Wolves, another King of Fighters tournament is held, this time hosted by Rock's uncle Kain R. Heinlein in the neighboring city of Second South Town. In actuality, Kain devises the tournament as means of luring a now grown-up Rock Howard to be under his control. Rock participates in the tournament alongside Terry upon hearing that his mother could still be alive, despite Terry's reluctance to let him compete - though he still wishes him the best of luck in the end when he decides to join with Kain, knowing he must let Rock choose his own path in life. In Terry's ending, Rock has left him in the aftermath of the tournament and is left to wander the streets of Second South Town while pondering Kain's parting words to him about the nature of humanity. He eventually comes to the conclusion that life is "all about heart" and Kain was wrong. Sometime after the events of Mark of the Wolves, in the short OVA Garou Densetsu 15th Anniversary ~Memories of Stray Wolves~, Terry meets up with Blue Mary and offers to help on a case she is working on while locating the whereabouts of Rock.

The King of Fighters series Edit

SNK's series of crossover fighting games take place on an alternate timeline, as many of the events that take place in Fatal Fury are largely ignored (such as Rock being raised by Terry despite Geese and Krauser still being alive).

Terry is one the few fighters to have partaken in all KOF games, beginning with The King of Fighters '94 - though his role in the series is that of being the team captain of Team Fatal Fury and being a supporting character, as his intentions for joining the tournaments in the first place were his concerns with Geese's involvement. In The King of Fighters '99, his role is expanded on a bit more as he fakes his death after staying behind during the collapse of NESTS's base and spends the next year tracking down the remaining members of NESTS who targeted Blue Mary. He later reemerges in The King of Fighters 2000 to team up with her for that year's tournament and again in the following year in The King of Fighters 2001. He also has a bit more to do in The King of Fighters XIV, joining to train and oversee the young newcomer Alice Nakata, his self-proclaimed biggest fan, as well as monitor Geese's whereabouts in the tournament.

Terry also appears in the follow-up to The King of Fighters XIV, being SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, though this time he has mysteriously been turned into a girl after being trapped in a pocket dimension alongside the rest of SNK's female fighters by Kukri. In Terry's ending, it is implied that this has all been a nightmare, as he also dreams of an alternate ending to Real Bout Fatal Fury, where Rock emerges and kicks Terry off of Geese Tower. Before he can fall, Terry is awoken by Rock for breakfast time.

Several other characters from Fatal Fury have also taken part in some of the King of Fighters tournaments to fight alongside Terry as a part of Team Fatal Fury. These include (aside from Blue Mary and usual teammates Andy and Joe) the wrestler Tizoc from Garou: Mark of the Wolves, who partakes in The King of Fighters 2003, and Duck King, who partakes in The King of Fighters XI. It is also in the KOF continuity where he runs into Ryo Sakazaki from Art of Fighting, the prequel trilogy to Fatal Fury, with whom he has a friendly rivalry with.
