The King of Fighters XV

OverviewStrategyDataCombos

Though he’s the son of the fearsome Geese Howard, this young fighter with a complicated past was raised by Terry Bogard. A virtual prodigy when it comes to fighting, Rock has learned to utilize fighting styles passed down from both his father and stepfather. B. JENET convinces him to join Team GAROU this KOF.

Gameplay Overview

Rock Howard is an all-rounder with not only a variety of tools suited for most situations but great reward off from his confirms even without meter.
Pros Cons
  • Jack of All Trades: Rock has an option for almost every situation. He has great anti-air options, solid confirms thanks to 6A, great space control with Reppuken and Hard Edge, and tons of great punish options in Rage Run and Crack Counter.
  • Air Control: Rock's air normals are very strong and cover wide ranges. j.D in particular is amazing for stuff poor air approaches.
  • Fantastic Damage Output: Rock's damage output is fantastic both with and without meter. Due to 623C being cancellable, Rock can convert anything into a high-damage launcher that leads into great corner carry.
  • Multiple Mix-ups: A Quick Max-cancellable overhead and a command grab make Rock surprisingly scary to defend against in the corner. His command grab even allows for combos afterward.
  • Meter Efficient: Rock not only uses meter really well, but he can also build it back as quickly as he uses it. This makes him ideal for any position.
  • Install: Deady Rave EXT causes Rock to gain OTG properties on many of his moves, which allows him to combo his supers together for massive damage. This alone makes him a deadly anchor.
  • Bad Crossups: Rock's crossup options in his jumping normals are mediocre, which can make it difficult to open people up off of a jump-in.
  • Slow Mix-ups: While he has multiple mix-up options, such as his overheads and command grab, they are slower than average. If you are looking for a character with hard to beat mix-ups, you should look elsewhere. That being said, Rock has good pressure options and normals, meaning his mixup potential is far from bad- instead, he relies heavily on conditioning.
  • Slow Blowback: Self-explanatory. Though the Shatter Strike version is faster, it also costs a meter (or half if it hits) to use.


Rock Howard, the protagonist of Garou: Mark of the Wolves, the biological son of Geese Howard and later the adoptive son of the Hungry Wolf himself, Terry Bogard, is a very well-rounded character that has just about all you need. He has a great projectile to zone with in Reppuken (236P), multiple anti-air options (i.e., 2C and Rising Tackle), an approach tool that covers distance in Hard Edge (214P), a very solid command grab in Shinkuu Nage (632146P), and normals with good range that make for excellent pokes, especially f.B and f.C.

Compared to his prior outing in KOF XIV, Rock has seen some tremendous gains that make him an even better character than he already was before. Notably, Rising Tackle, which was formerly a charge input ([2]~8P) is now a motion input (623P) that can be used at any given time. Pair this with the ability to break the move in the middle of the animation (623C~AB) - something which his teammates (B.Jenet and Gato) also carry over from Garou - and Rock's combo game is as flexible as it is damaging. Another key change is in his f.B - notably, the fact 6A can now chain into it, further increasing his meterless combo potential off of his light confirms. And finally, he has gained a brand-new move in the returning Overhead Kick (623K), formerly his T.O.P. attack. This move is different than how it was in Garou, notably the EX version caused a ground bound, which his EX Rage Run: Type Dunk (214BD) - itself having seen an overhaul for this installment - did previously.

Speaking of which, Rage Run has been overhauled for this installment. Whereas before, all he got was either a dunk (214B) or a side switch (214D), now he has multiple options out of his command run. New options include the ability to stop the run (214K~A), go straight into his Hard Edge (214K~C), or go straight into his Overhead Kick (214K~6K). Pair this with the prior options, and Rock's approach game is much more varied than it was previously.

Rock is also one of the lucky few characters in KOF XV to have more than two special cancelable far standing normals. f.A, f.B (which was already special cancelable in XIV), and f.C are all special cancelable and cover a decent amount of range, especially with the latter. This allows Rock to punish the opponent at a considerable range in addition to getting solid damage off of a relatively quick poke, especially if he has meter to spare.

Unfortunately, though, Rock isn't without his weaknesses. The biggest one is that - like any jack of all trades - he doesn't excel at any particular field. Furthermore, he also lacks good cross-ups, which hurts his mix-ups quite a bit. Some of his basic tools - such as his Blowback and Command Grab - are also slower than average, making him prone to counter hits on a hard read. Overall, though, Rock is a very versatile, reliable, quick, and damaging character that can work in almost any position. Without meter, he can do plenty of damage thanks in part to Rising Tackle's Break and the ability to chain his f.B into 6A. With meter, however, Rock can rack up the damage very quickly and gain meter back as quickly as he uses it.

  • Primary keep away tool, a grounded fireball that cannot be low profiled.
  • Has three versions with different properties:
    • A version travels the slowest and is the most advantageous on block/hit.
      • Useful as an okizeme tool in many situations.
    • C version travels faster than the A version but is less advantageous on block/hit.

  • Rising Uppercut, useful as a defensive option, anti-air, and combo extender.
  • Has three versions with different properties:
    • A version is fully invulnerable from frame 1 and is tied for the fastest meterless reversal in the game.
      • Moves forward slightly meaning it can whiff if an opponent jumps at close range.
      • Primarily used as a wakeup option and as an anti-air.
    • C version has no invulnerability but is a key part of Rock's combos.
      • Inputting AB after the C version turns it into a single hit launcher that can link into other specials.
    • EX version is fully invulnerable from frame 1 and is tied for the fastest metered reversal in the game.
      • Moves far forward meaning it can be used more effectively in pressure but can whiff on an opponent jumping at close range.
      • Primarily used as a wakeup option and as an anti-air, only a frame faster than the A version but does a good amount more damage.

  • Rock, like his father, tosses the opponent behind him and strikes a pose. Leads to a Hard Knockdown.
  • As with Heavy Rising Tackle, this can be broken with 632146P~AB, guaranteeing a Hard Edge at mid-screen and an EX Overhead Kick in the (left) corner.
  • EX version leads to a wall bounce on hit for more damage and better combo routes. EX version also has some invulnerability and will beat GCCD attempts.
  • Install versions deal more damage with a hard knockdown Rasetsu with a guaranteed OTG follow up with C Reppuken.
  • Normal versions can only combo from or lights or lights > 6A. EX version has longer range and can combo from c.C/D > 6A with a tricky late cancelled 6A. However, it is generally not worth using in an EX combo over EX Hard Edge or EX Overhead Kick because it applies a heavy 30% scaling penalty.

Perfectly timing this command grab so it connects meaty after a knockdown will make it very hard to deal with even if they guess right, as most characters will have to buffer a short hop to punish. Twofold with the EX version, as its invulnerability means they won't be able to mash or reversal either.

  • B Version is +1~3 on crouching opponents. Command grab is the perfect speed to connect after B version is blocked crouching.
  • B/D versions will go over most projectiles (with some exceptions) in the game if timed right, making it good for punishing fireballs thrown at neutral range.
  • EX version is harder to use compared to B/D version to call out aerial projectiles with. Has to be on reaction.
623K vs Airborne Fireballs  
Character Beats Loses to Notes
Andy 214A/C/AC (D ver.) 214AC (B ver.)
Ash [4]~6A (Both)/C (D ver.) 4~6C (B ver.)/AC (Both) First hit of [4]~6C is liable to smack Rock out of the air.
Athena 214A/C/AC (D ver.) 214AC (B ver.) Rarely does 623B go over Athena's 214AC (Rock is also juggled for his troubles on top of that), making 623D the more reliable option.
Heidern [4]~6A/C (Both)/AC (D ver.) [4]~6AC (B ver.) Rock has to be close to Heidern for either version to connect after his [4]~6A/C.
K' 236A/C/AC~6B -
King 236/B/D 236BD (B. ver, Trade) 623B will trade with King's 236BD while 623D will only hit at tip range.
Kula 214B/BD~6B - Projectile from Kula's 214D~6B only connects on hit. Up close, 623B has the tendency to trade.
Mai 236A/C (Both)/AC (D ver.) 236AC (B. ver, Trade) Humorously enough, 623B trades with Mai's 236AC more often than it connects, making 623D the more reliable option.
Robert 236A/C/AC -
Ryo - 236AC 623D has to already be in the air to even connect at all.
Yuri 236A*/C*/AC* 236AC* (B ver., Trade) The charge time on Yuri's 236P* is so slow you can easily hit her out of it before she even gets it out.

  • All versions are fully invul frame 1
  • B/D version has invul to projectiles until the first active frame, however it travels just short of fullscreen.
  • One gimmick that Rock has is using a 236A at fullscreen and cancelling it into a 236236K. Rock will travel across the screen and be up in front of the opponent with the projectile from 236A following behind him to protect him from being punished. This is far from a foolproof strategy and is likely a waste of meter, but it can catch your opponent by surprise.
