Geese Howard (ギース・ハワード, Gīsu Hawādo) is a guest character from the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series, who was revealed during EVO 2017. In the former series, he acts as the main antagonist but is given multiple roles in the latter. Growing up with a poor, single mother who was quickly abandoned by his father, Geese was embittered by his mother's plight and attempted to take vengeance against his father. Though he did encounter his father, he was defeated by his half-brother in quick fashion, leaving a permanent scar on his mind. After his loss, he believed solely in power being the key to success and trained himself endlessly.
Overthrowing BIG as Southtown's crime lord, he is held responsible for many events throughout the Art of Fighting and King of Fighters series such as the kidnapping of Yuri Sakazaki in the original Art of Fighting and the death of Terry and Andy Bogard's father, Jeff.
He made his debut to the Tekken series as a DLC character for Tekken 7, where he does not believe that Heihachi has what it takes to rule the world, and he was officially released on November 30, 2017.
His trailer held the lines:
- The nightmare begins!
- Whining fools begone!
- Cowards begone!
- The weak shall perish!
Games in order of appearance:
- Tekken 7 (2017)
As with his command list from King of Fighters, Geese retains many of his notable moves such as his Shippuuken and the many variations of Reppuuken. His reversal in Tekken 7 is just as deadly as it is in the source material, and Geese is able to counter even more attacks than a standard reversal; including attacks with knees or elbows, Yoshimitsu's sword strikes, Alisa's chainsaws and even Rage Arts. His Rashoumon acts as his Rage Art, while his super move is his Raging Storm and Daigou Reppuuken.
Geese also uses a 3-bar meter as opposed to the 2-bar meter of Akuma and Eliza, and he can enter Max Mode by using a bar when the meter is filled completely.
