E Button - For KoF XI, the Blowback Attack
E Button - For KoF NeoWave, Heat Mode, a state where character's offensive power is increased but at the cost of gradually losing health.

Technically not the SNK term.  "Straighting" is the official '98 SNK term as seen in the score screen (I dunno if they still have that).

"Straight" is used in other games too, it just means you won without losing a partner/round. Capcom/others haves "Complete Bonus". OCV is just a tournament-related term used by players.

MVS: Multi Video System, the SNK Neo Geo as an arcade system. Multiple game carts can be inserted inside and games can be easily switched without turning the cabinet off.

AES: Advanced Entertainment System, the SNK Neo Geo as a home console, can play the actual arcade game carts, with 100% arcade perfect graphics, sound, etc. Infamous for being expensive at the time of its release. Still is expensive due to the system being a little on the rare side, due to its limited success.

The term "Bait" is used in pretty much all fighting forums and i thought it should be added. Also i was going say "Tech roll" but i think SNK has another term for it..i think..

So that's what that is. I've always called it team-sweeping, but either is cool.

The Neo Geo Home system could not play MVS carts.

to be fair, why will you want to play mvs carts when you had the AES version, generally this one has lots more things than the MVS, and an even more easy interface than the MVS, the only thing that you could miss is the blood or some censor in the games, but honestly, I don't care

Even though is very lazy from their part to not include those, hell, in kawaks you can play with both just changing an option xD

btw, maybe this is a general fighting term, but what mean footsies?

Spacing and reading your opponent by baiting them then punish

just a nitpick but I wish ppl in general wouldn't use SF/Capcom terms when talking about kof, the main gripe being "meaty". That term is used by Capcom players and has no history in KOF as far as I can tell. Usually it's Heavy or the actual button C/D. On streams no one cares but in guides and FAQ's that's a I don't even.

I'm not following your definition of "meaty" here. Whether or not "meaty" comes from another game is irrelevant to the fact that it is relevant to strategy in KOF. Plenty of other games utilize this technique. "Meaty" is an attack used on an opponent's wakeup to cause blockstun or counterhit by taking advantage of a move's active frames. The "meaty" attack doesn't have to be a normal; may be a projectile or even a super.

I'm not being pretentious here, just looking for some clarification, because, by that reasoning, we shouldn't use the terms "reversal" or "dp" either since those terms prevail from SF/Capcom games. Unless you know of a KOF specific term for this technique, I think "meaty" is fine.
