Goodman is the final boss of Neo Geo Battle Coliseum. He uses a flaming whip both as a weapon, and to command a fire-like gorilla spirit (called Saru Ou, or Gorilla King) in a manner similar to an animal tamer. He is playable only in the PS2 version of the game.

Lessgo SNK Boss Syndrome! lol. Goodman was a fairly cool boss for Neo Geo Battle Coliseum. He's not the best SNK boss design by a long shot, and seems a bit generic and forced in some areas (they gave him the staple Sephiroth hair, like so many other gaming developers have copied with their "boss" designs). Sephiroth wants royalties for all these wannabes.

Goodman's attacks are pretty interesting, whilst appropriately annoying at the same time (he is an SNK boss after all). Goodman's gorilla spirit JoJo-style "stand " is an interesting, albeit random element of the design... but it definitely looks amazing in-game (see Goodman's animations page for reference - that's some pretty awesome sprite-work). When a fighting game boss can introduce a "unique" visual effect for the game, they have a bit more impact. Goodman at least succeeds at that, but ended up not being very memorable. I think NGBC still would've benefited more from a returning (yet newly drawn) SNK character as a boss, instead of this 100% new character from outta nowhere.
