According to the SNK team in a 1995 Neo Geo Freak Magazine interview, Geese Howard's "Wicked Shadow Fist" move was going to be in Fatal Fury Special, but did not make the cut due to time constraints. However, Geese's move did return in Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory as it was on the SNK team's "must add" list from the very beginning of the development.
