"Fighting's brutal. You can only bet on yourself!"
Those familiar with the company SNK will quickly recognize Terry Bogard as their frontman: a widely popular character that is loved by fans for his fighting techniques, streetwise attitude and otherwise laid-back personality.
The picture posted here is his normal outfit before ditching his famous hat and ponytail for a bomber jacket in the Fatal Fury game called Garou: Mark of the Wolves. In this game he gained his new Super Move, Buster Wolf, which is just as popular as his standard Super Move since Fatal Fury 2, the Power Geyser.
In the beginning, Terry was an orphaned child living on the streets of Southtown until he and his brother Andy were adopted by Jeff Bogard, a master of brawling martial arts. Jeff had taught them both the basics of martial arts, but before he could teach them further, he was killed by his old rival and Southtown's 'king,' Geese Howard. Since the police were having their pockets lined with Geese's money, Terry and Andy swore revenge and left Southtown to better themselves in their own styles of martial arts. After ten years of training, they both would return to Southtown to avenge their fallen father.
Terry's in-game appearances didn't limit him to Fatal Fury games; he's been in many rosters of other fighting games such as the King of Fighters series. As an icon of the 2D fighter world, Terry gets a lot of attention from players. His moves list makes him an excellent choice for beginners and experts alike.
