took a while for Terry to fully develop as a design. In the early days, his cheesy,
horribly-translated win quotes and genericness held back his design. However, once
Terry developed, nothing would stop this old school fighting game hero. His original attire was always kinda plain, very "90s",
and a bit before its time (back in the day)... but as the years passed, Terry's style
eventually became vintage, and ultimately, cool. Terry was
always a solid and recognizable hero of the Fatal Fury series. He had an awesome run in
the KOF series as well, which redefined and further fleshed out his design.
My favorite appearance of Terry's was in a little game called Garou: Mark of the
Wolves. His new threads in Garou advanced his design yet again, but
kept close enough to his original appearance to keep the nostalgia intact. His
badass new moves new moves & animations in Garou also redefined
him... "Ahhhh you Okay!? Bustaaah Wolf!!!!" I also loved Terry in the Capcom VS SNK
series (he was one of my mains).
Capcom did an amazing job with his 2D sprite & animations. Terry has had
many great appearances in fighting games, and time has proven that he is a timeless
character and a true fighting game icon.
