Geese Howard is the overseer of the Howard Connection and a supreme power behind the scenes in South Town. He is well versed in ancient Japanese martial arts and specializes in countering opponents’ attacks with devastating throws. He exudes an overwhelming presence as a charismatic figure of evil.

Gameplay Overview

Geese Howard is a versatile character who specifically excels at counteracting players with powerful throws that yield a beneficial result in form of frame advantage or a KND state for setting up another offensive measure or for preparing a defensive maneuver.

With these counters in mind, Geese can also effectively create these situations through his fireballs by control a certain amount of space on the ground to force a move out of the target. From up close, he has a pretty decent amount of combo routes that can cause a great amount of damage upon meter consumption. As such, if the player knows how to read the target's moves carefully, they will be able to implement a very deadly play style.
Pros Cons
  • Ridiculous Defense: Geese is a defensive powerhouse. Armed with an array of frame 1 counters and counter supers that lead to combos, knockdowns, or tons of damage, he can keep the opponent guessing on their offense and change the flow of the match in an instant with a well placed counter. He also comes equipped with a strong fireball for zoning and pokes to preemptively stuff approaches by the opponent.
  • Fantastic All-Rounder: Building off of the last pro, Geese can play any position and accommodate any playstyle extremely well. Despite him historically strong as a point character, he can play both other positions with great ease, fitting them very well. While he is a beast on defense and in neutral, he can press a deadly, menacing offense that the opponent must respect. Additionally, if played Mid or Anchor, Geese gains access to devastatingly powerful 4 and 5 bar combos, making his offense all the scarier and making attempting any attack he can mid counter all the more risky.
  • Great Normals: Just about every button Geese has is useful, contributing both to his strong defense and oppressive offense. His standing D and crouching C make for reliable anti-air pokes; his crouching D is a long-reaching, forward moving sweep the likes of which other characters lost in the patch that introduced him; his close C is fast, leads to big damage, and can even stuff hops; the list goes on. Of particular note is how Geese does not posses a single aerial that doesn't have practical application: j.A is a fast normal that combos into Shippuken; j.B is a highly effective cross-up; j.C hits multiple times and guarantees a combo on landing, no real timing required; j.D is yet another cross-up from full jumps that leads to bigger damage combos; and j.CD is a fantastic air-to-air and pressure tool.
  • Strong Reversals: Because Geese's reversals are counters, they are capable of beating safe jumps, which means opponents will have to adjust their offense against them. Geese also has an instantaneous reversal grab in one of his Climaxes, and while its range is small, it cannot be avoided on reaction after the zoom in. If they see the startup cinematic, and they were standing next to Geese, there's getting grabbed.
  • Braindead High-Damage Combos: Many of his optimal combos are simple to do, especially his strongest 5-bar combo which is a basic normal > command normal > special > super > Climax. Omitting the Climax gets you your optimal 2-bar combo, as well.
  • Heavy Damage Scaling: All of Geese's counters that lead to combos and follow-ups add a great deal of damage scaling to anything that they lead into, and while Geese has a wide variety of combo options, many of them will end up costing you damage in the end. The fact that he can get combos after them at all can be considered a blessing, however.
  • Damage vs. Oki: Geese's damage output in combos seems to be balanced factoring in his OTG grab in mind. Unfortunately your knockdown advantage after landing this grab is terrible, and it also switches sides. This means Geese has to give up significant damage for better oki and vice versa.
  • High Risk Defense: Geese's seemingly invincible defense comes at a price; you need to properly guess which attack, if any, the opponent is using, and utilize the appropriate counter. If the opponent is able to bait a counter, or if you guess wrong and use the incorrect counter, you're going to be eating a lot of damage. Geese has no meterless reversal without these counters, and the only non-counter reversals he has with meter are his Climax supers. You'll need to get into your opponent's head, or condition them properly, in order to make use of one of Geese's biggest strengths.


The original SNK boss Geese Howard makes his epic return once again as a playable character, thus marking his 3rd "canonical" appearance.

While Geese is well known for having rather devastating Atemi counters for shutting down a target's offense, Geese's move set is versatile enough to warrant an offensive approach.

As such, he can be played in quite a few ways.

He gains a new move out from his light (A) Fudou Ken (his 214A), a 6P follow up with a forward palm strike. This is an excellent way to end his light combos. Consequently, it does not offer as much push back on blocks so the player must be cautious while trying to implement an offense out from his light normals, which are still very useful on their own.

Geese can also zone around pretty decently with is Repuuken and Shippuken fire balls but only if the player is careful not to leave themselves vulnerable. He retains the moves he had from KOFXIV but several them went through some changes in their command inputs.

Geese also has regained another older move called the Hishou Nichirin Zan, his DP+P where he performs jumping wind cutting chop motion as he descends. Its EX counterpart is useful for combo extensions as it will cause ground bounce.

For specific examples, his OTG throw is now half-circle back forward into P instead of DP+P which is now his Hishou Nichirin Zan. His throws can be useful for ending specific combos after a hard knockdown, which he can get from things such as his 6A overhead or his Fudou Ken 214C~6K axe kick follow up against a juggled target.

His Raigou Repuuken (his DM) is now 2363214 + P input.

Another thing to note about Geese Howard is that he has two Climax moves. One is his Rashomon, which is a command grab. The other is his Raging Storm.

This time, the player can actually choose to use the pretzel input to perform the Raging Storm attacks against targets to anti-air them or to devastate them in combos but it does not actually change the property of the move.

Overall, if the player is looking for a character with well-rounded offensive and defensive attributes with a pretty decent back dash, close to long-range abilities and some tight-looking counters, Geese would be an excellent choice for competitive play in the long run if the player is careful.

  • C and EX versions essentially create a stationary fireball before launching a second fireball that travels. The first fireball will only hit the opponent if up close.
  • A version is very fast, and recovers quickly as well.
  • C version's projectile has the same priority level of an EX projectile, though it's only one hit and will still be stuffed by a multi-hit EX projectile.

Your zoning tool. A moves fast and recovers quickly, both pressuring the opponent and properly baiting them into punishing it. C is a pocket EX projectile for free, but has much more startup and recovery, with the first hit lacking the higher hitbox from previous games that helped against hops, so using it up close is asking to get blown up. At range, however, it's a great way to win a quick fireball war. The EX version has juggle properties and can add significant damage to your combos in the corner.

  • Air fireball.
  • Normal versions bounce Geese away, EX retains his jump momentum.
  • Brief recovery on landing.

Strengthening both his zoning game and his offense, the Shippuken is one of Geese's most valuable specials. The recoil on the normal versions turn all of his jumps into a 50/50 for the opponent, as Geese can either commit to a jump-in or use this to throw a projectile and retreat, making attempting an anti-air on him a genuine risk. The aversion this can give to opponents to attempt an anti-air can make the actual jump-ins you go for all the safer. This also works as a great air-to-air, as well. The A version throws a very slow fireball, while the C version throws one that moves at a moderate speed, making the latter good for pressure and the former good to throw out early and let it linger as a hazard or catch rolls and backdashes. Geese is rather floaty after the recoil, and can be punished if the opponent dodges the projectile. This can also be used to bait a counter, however, as the C version has less recovery on landing, but the counter will need to be a frame-1, which will cost some meter (2363214 B/C being your best bet). The EX is different, retaining Geese's jump momentum but pausing him briefly in the air, making it more of an approach tool, or one to throw out and not risk the floaty recovery. It's lost the combo-ibility it had in XIV, however, as now the EX Shippuken has some recovery on landing.

60 Mid - 12 9 16 Crumple - HKD (+101) -8 - 0 60

A straight palm, serving as a combo or super cancel filler special.

  • A version combos from lights with only one possible followup.
  • C version combos from heavies and has a slightly longer range. It has 3 possible followups, forcing the opponent into a high-low mix up with all leading to hard knockdowns.
  • EX version combos from light and crumples on the initial palm hit. It has the same 3 followups as the C version, but with slightly altered properties.

The rekka that replaced Jaei Ken. Most used for combo extensions, though poking with the A version occasionally can make for a fast check on your opponent. On hit with the C version you generally want to go with the 6P follow-up for super cancels, or the 6K follow-up to end a combo and lead into either OTG grab or Raging Storm. The light version has a new unique ender with 6P with knocks the opponent a good distance away, but causes a techable knockdown.

  • Normal version: Counters all physical air moves and high/mid physical special and super special moves. Also counters Shatterstrikes.
  • Ex version: Counters all physical air moves, mid/overhead ground normals, and high/mid physical special and super special moves.
  • Cannot be followed up after a successful counter. Not even with the OTG grab.

The most well-known of Geese's counters, largely because it's the one players end up seeing the most. This catches any and all physical specials, supers, Climaxes, and aerials. As these are among the easiest moves to counter, this tends to be the easiest of Geese's counters to pull off. Unlike many other counters, upon activation Geese will immediately put the opponent in a throw state regardless of the attack it stops, rather than simply launching an attack. The EX version catches everything but lows, and comes out frame 1. In some cases this version of the counter can be a better option than his 2363214 B/D, due to the longer active frames, and the fact it only does 20 less damage from 50% less meter.

  • Counters all mid/overhead ground normal attacks.
  • Applies significant damage scaling to whatever combo follows it.

Switches sides and allows for a full combo. You can run and use cl.C to punish them, but if you can't land it, use cr.C instead, there isn't much difference. If you want the MAXIMUM damage and meter build, you can do a short hop into j.HP and then use cl.C, but the timing is tight. Any combo you follow up with will be heavily scaled down in damage, so you'll need to decide what will get you the damage you want vs. how much meter you want to spend on reduced damage.

  • Counter all low physical moves. Hard Knockdown

Launches opponent fullscreen. Can be followed up with an OTG grab or Raging Storm in the corner, and this time the Raging Storm does not scale, allowing for some pretty crazy damage in the corner off a countered low. The normal version comes out 1 frame sooner than most crouching lows, but the EX version is your best bet for catching people trying to low confirm on your wakeup.

  • EX version does a minimum of 60 damage.

  • Normal version sideswitches, EX does not.

OTG grab. Most of Geese's combos end in a hard knockdown that should give you time to run up and grab with this unless you're the one with your back to the corner. While this usually tacks on a considerable amount of damage (often the equivalent of spending an EX in a combo), your advantage after is very minimal and you switch sides, potentially losing the corner if you pushed them there. Consider that before going for this every time possible.

If you can spare half a bar, EX is preferable as it does more damage, and doesn't side-switch, so you don't lose the corner. You still have very little advantage however.

Strangely, when EX is performed in the corner, some characters are left just outside of it, allowing you to cross up wth 623C after the knockdown. The following characters can be crossed up in the corner after EX OTG: Isla, Elizabeth, Kula, Whip, Dolores, Krohnen, Angel, Shermie, K’, Robert, Mai, Vanessa and Ash.

  • C is a great oki tool, if it crosses up its plus but if it doesn't its neutral.
  • EX is your go-to combo extender for 0.5 - 3 bar combos.

Despite being a DP that launches Geese in the air, this move is strictly for use on grounded opponents. There are zero anti-air properties with this move. Against grounded opponents, however, it makes for a great mix-up, as well as combo filler. A works as a decent callout, technically negative on block but, much like his 6B, you have enough time to counter a predicted punish. The C version is the one you'll be using the most, though, as it's not only safe on block, but crosses up and delivers a hard knockdown right next to Geese. This can lead into OTG grab, or if you want to really get nasty, an OTG Raging Storm into over 50% damage off a cross-up knockdown. Another great addition to Geese's oki guessing game. The EX version is a great combo extender, putting opponents into a flipped state right in front of you, giving ample time for a follow-up (usually being a Fudou Ken). Also acts as your EX follow-up to a wallbounce. You'll just want to run forward a little to ensure it connects properly.

  • Values in [] represent damage when the move OTGs.
  • Loses a huge amount of damage if used to OTG.

Incredibly fast projectile super, able to punish most zoning on reaction. The Level 2 version is even faster, to the point where some combos into Raigou Reppuken that work with the level 1 version may miss if attempting to upgrade it with level 2. If attempting a Climax Cancel into Raging Storm, the move must be performed the moment Geese fires the shot (so right as the super flash and windup animation end).

While this move can OTG, it is very meter inefficient to do so. The OTG version of this move can also climax cancel and combo into Raging Storm, but it should be also be avoided due to the heavy scaling to Raging Storm specific to this OTG route. It is essential to use routes that avoid OTG Raigou Reppuken or simply going straight into Raging Storm for more damage.

  • Counters all physical attacks.
  • Can only combo into Raging Storm, though the damage will be scaled.

This is THE move on your opponent's mind the entire fight. Frame 1 activation, parries every possible physical attack, without exception. Nerfed a bit from KOF XIV, as its active frames are shorter, and any Raging Storm comboed from it will now be scaled down to hell. When comboing into Raging Storm, it's important to remember that now Geese does not side switch until the move is finished, so unlike in XIV, you don't have to reverse your Climax input. However, if you do want the side switch, you can wait a beat and cancel into Raging Storm slightly later, at which point Geese will have switched sides, while the move is still cancelable. The counter window is much tighter than it was in KOF XIV, as well, so you can't throw this out as comfortably early as you might have back then.

  • This move can OTG without any additional scaling penalty. However, if climaxed cancelled into off an OTG Raigou Reppuu Ken, an additional 30% scaling is applied.
  • As a nod to this move's traditional input, it is possible to input this as 1632143CD.

Invincible on startup when used raw, but your primary application for this move is in combos. Hits with many rapid hits, so a great deal of combo scaling will be applied if tacked on the end of a longer combo, especially if comboed into from Raigou Reppuken, which is also a multi-hitter. Damage gets scaled down from pretty much anything that cancels into it except an actual combo.
