How are you". Following Geese's death during a fight, Terry decides to become the guardian of Geese's son, Rock Howard , he is a regular character in the crossover video game series The King of Fighters, in which he continues participating in tournaments.
Dating back to the first Fatal Fury, Terry is one of SNK's first fighting game characters and has appeared as a playable character in every Fatal Fury and main King of Fighters game to date.
In addition to video games, Terry has appeared in anime films based on his adventures from the Fatal Fury series, as well as soundtracks and manga serialized to Japanese monthly manga magazine Comic Bom Bom.
SNK created Terry with the idea of a "macho" fighter. After many several installments, Terry was redesigned in order to give him a more updated look to fit in Garou: Mark of the Wolves as well as some The King of Fighters games.
Terry's popularity has led SNK to create a female version of him that appears in the game SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy where he was given a female voice actress in order to give further appeal to the gamers.
The character has been well received by video games players. Publications have praised the character and how he was developed from Fatal Fury to The King of Fighters citing his fighting style. However, Terry's genderbent version was the subject of mixed reception.
Terry is prominently featured on merchandise from SNK and their crossover series, becoming an icon for them. In most of the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters games, Terry wears a red sleeveless denim vest with a white star on the back, worn over a white cutoff T-shirt. In the first Fatal Fury game and The King of Fighters XIV , Terry wears a red leather jacket that features rolled-up sleeves; the staff described him as "the most macho, stand-out, original Terry" as well as to keep in line with the "original clashing of fists.
Terry has been popular within the SNK staff to the point multiple members worked on his character's movesets during location tests of Real Bout Fatal Fury 2; when The King of Fighters was announced, Terry was added into the franchise by the SNK staff who noted "his popularity skyrocketed!
There were arguments about the character's winpose but in the end they decided on something new, they add that this game was created with the idea of having Terry fighting against Ryo Sakazaki , the lead character from the Art of Fighting series. SNK noted that Terry's high popularity within the fandom made him one of the most used characters for every installlment within the series.
In Mark of the Wolves, Terry's design consists of a brown bomber jacket with a white star on the back with the words " Running Wild " below it, as well as a white T-shirt and black fingerless gloves, blue jeans, brown shoes, his hair, while still notably long, is shorter than his former ponytail, flows instead of being braided.
This new redesign labeled as "cool" by the SNK staff was because they thought Terry's previous look had become outdated. Artist Falcoon considered this as one of his favorite designs before he started working and was pleased when he got the chance to design it.
Another reason for this change of clothing was to symbolize his more peaceful personality now displayed in Mark of the Wolves.
For The King of Fighters XIV, Terry's new appearance was found challenging by the artists to the point it was remade four times alongside changes by his motion actor; the main character designer noted.
In the making of SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, the SNK staff noted that because Terry was one of the company's most popular characters, his inclusion in the game was necessary if he had to be featured as a female fighter.
During development of the title, Terry was meant to have a male voice but this was met with disapproval and instead got a female voice. Despite fears of the voice actresses' deliveries, in the end SNK felt Terry managed to fit within the cast; as a character, Terry Bogard is a cheerful and friendly fellow to everyone around him.
He seems to bear no ill will towards anyone other than Geese Howard , the killer of his adoptive father, he and his younger brother Andy Bogard were orphans adopted by Jeff Bogard, killed by Geese Howard when Terry and Andy were children.
