""A master of Shiranui-style Ninjutsu! His whole body is a weapon, honed to perfection! ANDY BOGARD."
The King of Fighters XV

Andrew "Andy" Bogard (アンディ・ボガード) is a character in both the Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series. He is Terry Bogard's younger brother. His official nickname is "The Human Weapon"[2] or "Whole Body Weapon" (全身ぜんしん 凶器きゅうきん).[3]

Personality

Andy is a quiet and rather stoic man who always sets his sights on improving himself. Although he is usually serious, he breaks form when confronted with things that make him uncomfortable -such as his height- and hides his embarrassment with boastful declarations, probably underlying his diffidence in a sense. Andy acts as the withdrawn and analytical observer amongst his friends. As far back as he can remember, he has never won any fight over his elder brother and seems to suffer from an inferiority complex because of it. He respects him yet feels that he has to one day overcome him. Despite this, both brothers are solid companions to each other, whether be in normal tasks, fighting or even travels.

In the Fatal Fury timeline, he is aware of Mai's interest, and he just considers her to be more of a younger sister since he started training with Hanzo when he was very young and devoted his life to martial arts. Mai's luck is surely bad. However, in The King of Fighters timeline, he is in love with Mai, but rarely expresses it, as he personally feels that he is not yet mature enough to handle marriage and training at the same time. He seems perplexed by Mai's actions towards him but will do everything he can to protect her. Their relationship is usually used for comedic effect in the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series. As the series progresses however, their relationship becomes more serious.

Abilities

  • Gather Chi - Andy can gather chi energy from Gaia, the mother-earth.
  • Energy Projectile - Andy can fire a ball of chi energy from his hands called Hishouken.
  • Energy Attacks - Andy can use chi energy to increase the damage of his normal attacks (punches, kicks, etc.)
  • Fire Attacks - Andy can use fire to increase the damage of his normal attacks and even engulf his body in flames, though he is not a pyrokinetic like Mai is.

  • Acrobatics - Andy is very proficient with acrobatics thanks to his ninjutsu training.
  • Stealth - Due to his ninja training, Andy is proficient in stealth.
  • Cycling - Andy is a bicyclist and can do short laps.

Fighting style

Andy unlike Terry who mixes in street fighting, has had formal martial arts training via employing Koppouken as his fighting style (which is an old Japanese martial art that has some Karate and Ninjutsu moves, but with emphasis on targeting vulnerable parts of the body and breaking bones). Some time after mastering Koppouken, Andy went to learn the Shiranui-ryuu Ninjutsu with Hanzo Shiranui, mixing in fast blinking movement, chi control and some acrobatics.

Curiously, despite him actually undergoing far more formal training than his brother Terry, Andy somehow hasn't been able to match up to him as often, likely due to Terry having more raw experience in the streets. Despite this, both brothers have regularly kept up their own skills.

Trivia

  • Andy's Japanese speech patterns has changed a bit over the years. In his debut, he referred to Terry as "Ani-shaa" (兄貴), the archaic version for the "big brother". Since Fatal Fury 3, however, he calls him the more common phrase for "older brother", "Nii-san" (にいさん). He also used to refer to himself as "boku" before using the more formal "watashi" and masculine "ore".
  • Andy is predominantly a diminutive version of the male given name Andrew, and variants of it such as Andreas and Andrei. Andrew is derived from the Greek name Andreas, meaning "manlike" or "brave". 
  • According to Terry's character album, he is well aware of Andy's desires to surpass him and recognizes him to be his greatest living rival. To counter his brother's effort, Terry constantly strives to improve himself by fighting stronger opponents.
  • In Neo-Geo Freak 1998, the characters in KOF '98 have their own interviews. Here are Andy's response to the questions.[4]
    • What is your aspiration in this competition? - "If you don't care about the two letters of the championship, it's a lie. I intend to relax enough and come to the tournament."
    • Who would you like to fight the most? - "My brother."
    • Who would you like to team up with? / Who would you not like to team up with? - "The ones I team up with, is Joe and my brother. However, I feel sorry for Mai every year, so I would like to join with Mai once. Billy is the man who I don't want to team up with."
    • What is "KOF" for you? - "I think it's one of the lessons."
    • Finally, please give a word to your fans. - "Please refer carefully to the result of the lesson well."
  • In the Fatal Fury movie, Terry loses to the CPU Andy in the arcade game he was playing.
  • It was an open secret at SNK that Andy was the older Bogard brother in the planning stage for Fatal Fury: King of Fighters.
  • In the latter entries of The King of Fighters series, Mai teases Andy with a bunshin projection of what appears to be their child, with him being genuinely shocked of her antics. This indirectly implies that his relationship with Mai is more intimate than what is told of. This is also humorously touched upon in one of the endings in the Real Bout series.
