Console Changes

- Crouching A > Crouching C is a chain combo. Can be canceled.

- Normal Buster Wolf’s (qcf x2+P) dashing speed is now identical to the EX version. But the Invincibility is the same as before.

- Far D’s recovery time has been reduced.

- Standing CD’s hit detection lasts a bit longer.

- Trinity Geyser’s (qcb~hcf+P) hitbox has been changed so that it actually hits 3 times.

Producer Yamamoto says:

"We’ve mainly buffed up his normals, and he can do solid combos with the addition of chains. Also, His Trinity Geyser’s hitbox has been changed, and he can also hit the opponent afterwards in the corner."

Gameplay Overview

So here's where we get real detailed with Mr. Bogard. Terry is a brawler both as a character design and from a gameplay stand point. This Lone Wolf puts in a lot of work on the opponent, using fast normals and tricky setups to keep an opponent blocking. Terry's true strength comes from proper utilization of all his normal moves and command normals. He has a lot of situational normals that have specific uses like his st.D used as an anti-air or his f+A as a long range poke. Learning how to use them to defend yourself is very important to playing as a good Terry because you can keep bringing the fight to them and staying in your opponent's face.

Terry's specials are also very situational, but using them at the right time can net some good rewards like knowing when to use and space Burn Knuckle, how to use D crackshoot to start a frame trap, or when to use power wave instead of crackshoot in a string. He has very good block strings with specials, using Crackshoot to keep people in check if they're blocking low, or just using your fast normals to keep poking until they crack, especially if you mix in some hop/jump D cross ups for good measure. Whether you're cornered or you're cornering someone, Terry's got the tools to take a bite out of any character in the cast.

Lone Wolf Terry Bogard is a technical, but rewarding character. He's easy to use at first, but hard to master.

[ Info Needed ]
Pros Cons
  • Has cancellable and fast normals.
  • Properly spacing most ground specials and normals make them safe and good to use for pressure (Easy guardbreak character)
  • Simple damaging combos
  • VERY long range normals like far C and far D as well as a sliding st.CD
  • Can set up ambiguous cross ups and back-turned situations
  • Not very damaging without meter, drive AND stock meter
  • Only properly spaced/specific combo situations yield decent damage in the corner.
  • Grapplers take away some of your pressure options.
  • Not many special moves are safe on block.
  • Neomax and EX Power Geyser are terrible in the corner, doesn't automatically hit all hits.

25 Mid - 4 3 8 +4 +2 -

A quick jab. Terry's best choice for dealing with hops. Very quick recovery. Not effective for jumps. It can be comboed into Rising Upper (df+C).

  • Cancelable on hit/whiff.
  • Chains into other lights.

st. B: 30 damage, cancel-able, hits mid. A side kick with good reach. It can be chained from his crouching B and can be comboed into df+C, weak crackshoot, Buster Wolf, and EX Power Geyser.

st. C: 80 damage, cancel-able, DMs only, hits mid. A straight punch with good range and good speed. Great poke. Also note it's unique cancel properties.

st. D: 70 damage, hits mid. Terry leans back, twisting slightly, and kicks forward. (Animation resembles the last hit of his 'Fire Kick' move from Real Bout 2.) Better reach than his far C, but a bit slower.

Close Standing Normals

cl. C - 70 damage, cancel-able, hits mid. A close-range punch that hits twice. Very fast and combos easily. Five stars!

cl. D - 70 damage, cancel-able, hits mid. Terry delivers a kick aimed at his opponent's face. Not as strong as close C, and only hits once; however, it can be used for combos and is actually preferable for longer (particularly HD) combos due to less damage scaling.

Crouch Normals

cr. A: 25 damage, chain-able and cancel-able, hits mid. A crouching jab. It can combo into his Rising Upper (df+C).

cr. B: 30 damage, chain-able and cancel-able, hits low. A quick, crouching kick. It can be chained into standing B or crouching A.

cr. C: 70 damage, cancel-able, hits mid. A crouching version of his far C. While less damaging, it can be canceled into anything.

cr. D: 80 damage, whiff and hit cancel-able, hits low. A crouching kicks that knocks down standing opponents. Long reach.

Jump Normals

j. A: 45 (40) damage, hits overhead. A quick, downward punch.

j. B: 45 (40) damage, hits overhead. Terry's quickest move for Air-to-Air. Good horizontal reach. Use it to cover space in the air, whether you're going neutral, forward, or back. Ineffective for Air-to-Ground.

j. C: 72 (70) damage, hits overhead. A strong punch aimed downward. This is the perfect medium in the air. Not as much horizontal reach as j.B, and is 2 frames slower. j.C can be used for both Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground. If you are unsure which normal to throw out in a specific hop / jump, j.C is a good choice.

j. D: 70 (68) damage, hits overhead. This is less of an Air-to-Air move and much better for Air-to-Ground, but if you are in a higher jump arc than your opponent, j.D can be a good choice. It crosses up opponents extremely well.

Blowback Normals

CD: 75 damage, whiff and hit cancel-able, hits mid. A shoulder charge.

j. CD: 90 (80) damage, hits mid. Looks like an aerial version of Terry's close D.

GCCD: - 10 damage, hits mid. Guard Cancel Blowback Attack. For some reason, it's the same animation as his close D.


Buster Throw = (b/f+C/D) close 100 damage, can be broken. Terry grabs his opponent and throws them to the ground.

Command Normals

Rising Upper = (df+C) 60 damage, cancel-able, hits mid. An uppercut with good vertical reach. Terry's best choice for dealing with jumps. Works for hops, but st.A is a better choice and has less recovery on whiff. Can be comboed into from close C/D and crouching A. Common follow-ups are: Power Wave, weak Burn Knuckle and either DM.

  • Note: Often trades in Counter Hit situations. If the opponent's move does not lead to a hard or soft knockdown, can combo into Buster Wolf. Against some moves, it makes for a poor anti-air. Ex: Kyo j.2C)

Back Knuckle = (f+A) 70 damage, hits mid. Terry spins around and hits the opponent with the back of his knuckle, hence the name. Great reach and good damage, but slow to come out. Useful on an opponent's wake up as a long range poke. Can be combo'd into from standing A. In HD mode, this command normal is special cancel-able, even Rising Tackle combos after it.

Special Moves

Power Wave = (qcf+P) - Terry slams the ground with his fist, producing a wave of energy. This move is mostly useful in block-strings, and occasionally super canceled. A version comes out faster and travels full-screen. C version travels half of the screen, travels faster and knocks down. No damage difference.

(EX) = qcf+AC - Travels full-screen, but slowly. Hits three times. Although it doesn't link with any specials, it's hard to poke him after it comes out. With proper spacing, it's impossible to hit Terry before it comes out. If an opponent jumps onto it, it traps them in a standing position while being hit, allowing for a follow up attack. On block, and if you're at the right distance, you can run after your fireball and keep pressuring your opponent.

  • Super Cancel-able
  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • A/C damage: 60; EX damage: 45x3
  • C version absorbs/beats other projectiles/EX Projectiles (Including standard projectiles like Kyo's, and those that stay still like Elizabeth's). Use this move as a "nutcracker" to break open fireball dependent characters.

Burn Knuckle = (qcb+P) - Terry flies forward with his burning fist outstretched. It travels quite fast, making it useful for keeping your opponent on their toes. It is quite unsafe on block, so please don't just throw it out there and hope it hits. Because this move can be drive canceled, it's the linchpin of most of Terry's longer combos. A version comes out faster, does less damage and doesn't travel as far. C version comes out slower, does more damage and travels farther. At certain spacings, Terry's A burn knuckle is at max range of effectiveness and, when blocked, is safe. C version, however, is never safe at any distance.

(EX) = qcb+AC - Comes out as fast as A, travels farther than C and does almost as much damage as both combined. When it hits an airborne opponent mid-screen, Terry can end up on the opposite side of his opponent. (You can drive cancel into EX Burn Knuckle from A or C Burn Knuckle, by the way.)

  • Drive/Super Cancel-able
  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • A damage: 75; C damage: 90; EX damage: 160

Crack Shoot = (qcb+K) - Terry flips forward with his leg coming down on his opponent. Hard to punish on block, so it's a great tool for pressuring opponents. Against airborne opponents, it can be used to juggle them higher, making this move useful for extending combos. B version is faster and hits twice, D version hits four times.

All Crack Shoots are fairly safe on block, B being -2 frames and D being -1 when standing. Opponents can do moves (like low B) to lower their hurtbox and avoid being hit at the right time so don't be too predictable! His B and D Crack Shoot allows you to continue into a combo if they are hit while crouching, though the link is pretty tight. At about half screen, a D crack shoot can hit a standing opponent and allow Terry to continue the combo as well. If an opponent blocks D Crackshoot low, that's good! Terry is at frame advantage. You can jump, pressure with low B or st.C and your opponent will likely be beat out or feel safer blocking.

(EX) = qcb+BD - Comes out faster and is an overhead. This makes it a very useful way to end a match if your opponent in near death. The move can also be used to set up a hard knockdown for ambiguous cross ups or roll set ups to confuse the opponent on which way to block. However, it is not safe on block up close.

  • B/D Hit Detection: Mid, EX Hit Detection: Overhead

Note: B/D might whiff on shorter characters if they crouch it like Mai, Ash, and Kula

  • Damage: 40x2 / 40x4 / 120

Rising Tackle = (d~u+P) - Terry flips upside down and flies straight up while spinning around like a top. Great damage, but incredibly unsafe. (If you want a safer anti-air, go for Rising Upper.) Use this only when you're certain your opponent will be above you, or in combos. The quicker, A version hits five times, and C version hits seven times, although if the opponent isn't close enough all the hits won't connect.

(EX) = d~u+AC - EX version is godly. Around 3 frames start-up and insanely powerful. It also has a vacuum effect, where the opponent is pulled into the move if it connects. So while the normal version can just knock them away after one hit, the EX version is always going to hit multiple times if one hit connects. There are technically 21 hits to this move, but it's impossible for all of them to connect. Against an airborne opponent who is very close, it can hit a maximum of 20 times. The maximum number of times it can hit a grounded opponent is only 17. Great for ending combos.

  • Drive / Super Cancel-able (first hit only)
  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • A damage: 40,10x4,50; C damage: 50,15x6; EX damage: 20x7,10x13,30

Desperation Moves

Power Geyser = (qcb hcf+P) - Terry slams the ground with his fist, creating an angled geyser of energy. Great anti-air, but a tad slow. The move itself is max-cancellable, making it a very powerful tool for short HD combos.

(EX) = qcb hcf+AC - Creates three geysers (although Terry still only hits the ground once). It comes out much quicker, making it much more useful in combos. The move is invincible on start up as well so it can be used as a reversal. Under the right circumstances, it can be used to juggle an airborne opponent high enough that Terry can follow up with Buster Wolf, or other moves. In the corner, however, it may only hit twice, or even once.

  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • A/C damage: 210; EX damage: 120x3 [total=360]

Buster Wolf = (qcfx2+K) - Terry flies forward like in Burn Knuckle and, if the move connects, an explosion blasts the opponent away. It's not as strong as Power Geyser, but it can combo in many situations Power Geyser wouldn't be able to. Also, it can be max canceled into his NeoMax. The start up for the move is fast and trading with an opponent in the air causes the opponent to be frozen in place in a semi-stunned state. You can use it to punish slow recovery normals or specials as as anti-air By itself, it causes soft knockdown so it can be teched, but the recovery after hit is much better than power geyser for continuing pressure. It's a gamble to use it because any version of Buster Wolf is unsafe on block.

(EX) = qcfx2+BD - EX version does more damage and goes through projectiles. Great full-screen punish.

  • Max Cancel-able
  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • B/D damage: 90,90 [total=180]; EX damage: 90,30x4,90 [total=300]


Trinity Geyser = (qcfx2+AC) - Terry raises both fists behind his head and, after a dramatic pause, slams both fists to the ground. A series of successive power geysers travel across the screen, although the move can only hit a maximum of three times. It's a great NeoMax against mid-screen opponents (and can even be followed up with Burn Knuckle under the right circumstances). However, against cornered opponents it's completely inadvisable, since it'll only hit once. On block, it can be guard cancel rolled so you can get around the Geysers. If you've got some distance from Terry, you can roll normally just before the geysers reach you and still get around the geysers. If they are evaded, Terry can be punished.

  • Hit Detection: Mid
  • Damage: 150x3 [total=450]
