Garou: Mark of the Wolves is a loose adaptation of the Neo-Geo game with the same name for GameBoy Color, possibly created by SKOB (seeing that King of Fighters R2 shares the engine and the style of the backgrounds with this game) at an unknown date.

Eight characters are playable in this game, with half of the roster being available in the actual MotW, while the rest has their spotlight only in older Fatal Fury games. The Garou cast consists of Rock Howard, Terry Bogard (in his new outfit), Kim Dong Hwan and Kim Jae Hoon. All these characters have been drawn 'from scratch', being maximally accurate to the style of actual Neo-Geo Pocket Color fighting games style, with the only exception being Kim Jae Hoon, who's a head swap of Kim Kap Hwan from his appearances in Fatal Fury: First Contact and King of Fighters R1. The older Fatal Fury cast has been derived from the same Fatal Fury: First Contact game and consists of Mai Shiranui, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi and Ryo Sakazaki. After fighting all eight characters, the player has to defeat three 'recolors' in order to get the ending.

The backgrounds are original, though Rock's stage heavily resembles the one which may be seen in MotW as Kain's stage, with Maria Heidern's portrait shown in both backgrounds. In addition, Andy Bogard's stage looks more like the Italy background from King of Fighters '98.


  • This game uses music from King of Fighters '95 for Gameboy by Takara. For instance, Terry's stage uses the character select theme from that game.
  • The box art features character art from The King of Fighters '99, including for Joe Higashi, the only of the depicted characters to actually appear in the game.
