Fatal Fury Special (known in Japan as Garou Densetsu Special) is a fighting game developed and published by SNK for the Neo Geo and is an update to Fatal Fury 2. It's an update similar to Street Fighter II': Champion Edition, as the background stages are slightly changed and the four bosses are now playable. The game also includes the return of three characters from the original Fatal Fury ( Duck King, Tung Fu Rue, and Geese Howard) along with a secret character from the Art of Fighting franchise ( Ryo Sakazaki). The game also features a faster game speed and a new combo system.

The game was ported to the SNES, Game Gear, Sega CD, and PC Engine (in Japan, with a special "Arcade Card" add-on). SNK also released Fatal Fury Special to the Neo Geo CD. The original Neo Geo version was also included in the Fatal Fury Battle Archives Volume 1 compilation for the PlayStation 2 and was released on the Wii Virtual Console on November 4, 2009. It was also released on the Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game on September 5, 2007 featuring online play, HD display, achievements and leaderboards.


The gameplay is directly from Fatal Fury 2, with the exception of allowing players to combo their attacks. This makes Fatal Fury Special the most competitive Fatal Fury game before Garou: Mark of the Wolves.
