It's been several years since Geese Howard was defeated in a battle with Terry Bogard, a young man looking to avenge his father. Rather than looking to be saved from death after falling off his office balcony, Geese instead decided to die, and left behind his young son, Rock. Terry took Rock in and became like a big brother to him, raising the boy throughout his life.

Now Rock is a teenager, and Terry is a man in his 30s, and both are about to come together in a new faces and old come together for the greatest battle yet!

1001 Video Games

Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


In a rather subtle crossover, the character Butt is listed as a mere karate master, but if you've played Art of Fighting, you'll recognize his style as Kyokugen-ryu karate, the same style the Sakazaki family (Ryo, Yuri, and Takuma from AOF) practices. So has Butt been studying with Takuma? Perhaps...

Version differences

Khushunood Butt and The Griffon Mask suffered name changes between the US and Japanese versions: Butt was originally named Marco Rodriguez, and The Griffon Mask was named Tizoc. The word "Tizoc" means "sick leg", or "lame leg". It was the name of an ancient Mexica tlatoani, or leader, who ruled from 1481 until 1486, when he was poisoned by Aztec aristocrats. Tizoc is also the name of a very famous Mexican movie starring Pedro Infante and Maria Felix.
