Fatal Fury Special (餓狼伝説スペシャル, Garō Densetsu Supesharu, "Legend of the Hungry Wolf Special") is an update of Fatal Fury 2 released in 1993 that added three characters from the first Fatal Fury game; a hidden character; and made bosses into playable characters.

This game was one of the most popular games in Japan in 1993. It has been said that, as a result of the popularity that ensued from Ryo being a hidden character in this game,  and The King of Fighters as a series was born.

This game was later ported to the Game Gear and SNES by Takara, to the Sega CD by Victor Interactive Studios/JVC Digital Studios, and to PC Engine CD by Hudson Soft. SNK Playmore released a Xbox 360 port on September 5, 2007 on Xbox Live Arcade and a Microsoft Windows port on January 9, 2016, as part of Humble NeoGeo 25th Anniversary.

A Japan-only pachinko version was also released using the game's Japanese name.


Geese Howard: a man feared by the world as the dark ruler of South Town. He shocked the land with his violent techniques and was confident that no one could ever top him. To rid himself of the man, Geese took the life the street champ, Jeff Bogard. However, several years later, three men arose to stop Geese's ambition. They were the sons of the dead Jeff, Terry and Andy Bogard, and Muai Thai champ, Joe Higashi.

After Geese was defeated by them, he was believed to be dead. However, as time passed, a disturbing rumor began to float around the world.

Geese is alive.

His younger half-brother, Wolfgang Krauser, took the reigns of the underworld after his elder brother's passing. However, the resurrected Geese deprives Krauser his seat of glory and the Bogard brothers burn with the flames of revenge. Terry and Andy hear where Geese is located.

"We're coming for you, Geese!"

A new legend is about to begin.


The only new character added to the roster is:

  • Ryo Sakazaki, coming from Art of Fighting series and the secret boss in the game. His presence was perhaps a inspiration for the The King of Fighters series, released in the year following the release of this game.
