During the September 2019 Nintendo Direct, Terry was announced to appear as a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, being included in Challenger Pack 4 of the first Fighters Pass and thus being the fifth downloadable fighter overall for the game.[1] His in-game design resembles his appearance in the older The King of Fighters games throughout the 1990s, while his animations during matches appear to be based off of his animations in The King of Fighters XII and The King of Fighters XIII. He was released along with the 6.0 update on November 6th, 2019 (PST).

In a similar vein to Ryu and Ken, Terry always faces his opponent in 1-on-1 battles, allowing him to walk backwards; however, he can still dash in any direction. Unlike Ryu and Ken, Terry sports inputs only for his special moves, though he has more inputs for said moves than the Street Fighter characters. Terry sports a unique comeback mechanic: once he reaches either 100% damage or one third of his health, he gains access to two extra special moves, referred to as "Super Special Moves" in the form of Power Geyser and Buster Wolf. Terry has a somewhat slow walking speed, but he sports a decent dashing speed as well as a high overall damage output. He is a heavyweight fighter, being heavier than Wario, Ike, Ridley, Simon, and Richter but lighter than Piranha Plant, while having the same weight as Samus, Bowser Jr. (and the Koopalings), and Dark Samus.

Unlike other fighters, all of Terry's standard attacks are nicknamed (barring his grab, pummel, edge attack, and floor attacks): standard attack is Jab, Body Blow, High Kick; tilt attacks are Middle Kick, Rising Upper, and Under Kick respectively; dash attack is Power Charge; smash attacks are Backspin Kick, Wild Upper, and Slide Kick respectively; aerial attacks are Chop, Jump Kick, Jump Backward Kick, Somersault Kick, and Jump Karate Punch respectively; forward and back throws are both Buster Throw; and up and down throws are Grasping Upper and Neck Breaker Drop respectively.

Classic Mode route[edit]

All matches in Terry's Classic Mode route are Stamina battles, a trait shared only with Ryu's Classic Mode route. They are all made up of three characters with some trait in common, referencing how the teams in the King of Fighters series are set up.

Buster Wolf[edit]

SmashWiki article: Buster Wolf

Buster Wolf is one of Terry's super special moves. Terry will rush forward to perform a punch and ask, "Are you okay?" If the move connects with an opponent, Terry will shout "Buster Wolf!" and fire a large energy explosion from his fist. If the move is performed while an opponent is down, only the initial hit activates with low knockback. The move has a unique structure; while the initial hit is considered a standard attack, the move will grab upon hitting an opponent successfully. This means the move does not ignore shields or counterattacks, unlike other grab attacks such as Bowser's Flying Slam and Ganondorf's Flame Choke, but Terry can damage Banjo & Kazooie while they are performing Wonderwing, due to that move's nature of being vulnerable to grabs and shields.

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

Terry shares this stock conversation with all other DLC characters except Piranha Plant. It was originally used for Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, Ryu, Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, who are downloadable fighters in that game.

  • Pit: Who is THAT?
  • Palutena: I have no data on this fighter. I can't believe it!
  • Viridi: It must be an intruder from another dimension!
  • Pit: Whoever it is, the goal remains the same: to fight and win!

Quotes[edit]

  • "Hey, come on!" (Said by Terry at the end of the pixel art portion of his reveal trailer)
  • "Power Charge!"
  • "Goodbye!"

Trivia[edit]

  • During Terry's reveal trailer, several references to various SNK properties are shown in a series of "fake-out" attempts to receive the invitation. In order:
    • The spinning letter with an "S" (for Sakurai or Smash) emblazoned on its seal is a reference to Rugal Bernstein's R-sealed letters from The King of Fighters, particularly The King of Fighters '94. The hand of the main protagonist of The King of Fighters, Kyo Kusanagi, is briefly shown attempting to grab it like in that game, but unlike the actual game, he fails to do so.
    • Ryo Sakazaki of Art of Fighting is shown immediately after, using graphics from his own series' cutscenes as he unsuccessfully swipes at the letter.
    • Andy Bogard and Joe Higashi, the other two playable characters in Fatal Fury: King of Fighters are then shown fighting over the letter.
    • Geese Howard, Terry's nemesis, then attempts to grab the letter only to fall from his penthouse, parodying his death in the ending of Fatal Fury.
    • Nakoruru of Samurai Shodown is then shown attempting to grab it via her hawk, Mamahaha.
    • Iori Yagami of The King of Fighters games starting from The King of Fighters '95 then makes a slight attempt to grab it and, upon failing to do so, proceeds to perform his signature maniacal laugh.
    • In the end, when Terry picks up the letter, his hand uses the sprite from his ending in Real Bout Fatal Fury where he unsuccessfully attempts to rescue Geese from falling to his death. The sprite of Terry lifting the letter up in the air is edited from the intro cinematic of the same game.
  • Terry's Challenger Pack came with the most music tracks out of any DLC franchise in the overall Super Smash Bros. series, with 50 new songs being added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    • Before Terry's release, Simon and Richter debuted with the most songs (34 songs) out of any newcomer introduced to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
