Terry's announcement

Terry Bogard is one of the main characters of SNK's Fatal Fury series, as well as the company's crossover series, The King of Fighters, first appearing in Fatal Fury: King of Fighters. He is one of SNK's most iconic characters, leading to his numerous appearances and roles in other fighting games.

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 Fighters Pass (which is scheduled to be released during November 2019) and thus being the fifth downloadable fighter overall for the game.[1] His in-game design resembles his appearance in the The King of Fighters: Maximum Impact games, 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.

  • 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.
