Geese Howard (Fatal Fury video games)

Geese Howard


Mr. Howard is a master villain who showed up in seemingly every SNK series of beat-em-up video games – Art of Fighting, Fatal Fury and King of Fighters. He’s been at it since 1992.

This persistence, along with his strength and charisma, have given him something of a mystique among fans. He can reasonably be listed among the great villains in the history of console gaming.

As with many of our SNK character writeups this is not a full profile, but a first stab at his DC Heroes RPG stats.

“This town is nothing without the presence of yours truly.”

“Don’t call me pansy again, bimbo ! Now leave my town !”

“Oooh, you were as strong as my pain reliever. Oh, my sinuses are killing me.”

“Don’t ever enter my town again without my express written permission !”

“Shut up and get back here, pansy ! That weasel. I’m gonna decorate my study with his hide !”

“Tell the Bogards and their brief-wearing friend that Geese is here to stay !”

“You’ve gotten stronger, but you’re still no match for me, Andy. Hang it up !”

“No two-bit Hong Kong cop is going to ruin my plans !”

“So this is the level of the Mochizuki’s ? Sad, so very, very sad.”

“Hey, I’ve been waiting to meet up with you. Just wait until I regenerate. See ya !”

“There’s only room for one power-mad maniac in this town, melonhead !”

“What ? Over so soon ? I’m not even warmed up. What a joke !”

“So how’s it feel to be ruled by overwhelming power ?”

“Want the power to live again ? Sorry your time had run out !”

“Hmph ! I’ll break anyone who blocks my way to world conquest !”

Previous Statistics

Fatal Fury: Dominated Mind as well as the also noncanon Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition had a slightly enhanced Nightmare Geese of sorts. Add one to all his stats as well as Running: 04 and bring his HP total to 090.

Note that this is also how he was when he was at his peak from receiving some of the power from the Immortality Scrolls.

Geese Howard lands with an energy splash


Besides Billy and Raiden, Geese also has two other named body guards/assassins. Since they’re name they’re assumed to be above regular thugs and their card in SNK versus Capcom seems to imply that they’re good at taking out other thugs:
