Terry's Triple Wolf in Ultimate.
Upon activation, Terry will shout "Overheat!" and perform a Triple Geyser, consisting of three consecutive Power Geysers. If an opponent is hit by one of these geysers, gameplay will transition into a cutscene, where Terry will perform a Power Dunk with a shout, before charging up, yelling "Here's the big one!" and performing a cinematic Buster Wolf while shouting “BUSTER WOLF!!”. If multiple opponents are hit by the Triple Geyser, only the first one will be subjected to the cutscene.
Triple Geyser is capable of dealing a lot of damage to bystanders; the cinematic finisher can KO opponents at around 60% from the center of an Ω form stage, while the geysers themselves can KO at around 130% under the same conditions, though the latter is only relevant if the move strikes multiple opponents. Due to the move's massive range and ability to combo from a wide variety of Terry’s moves, it is an effective Final Smash against single opponents.
Thanks to his special move canceling mechanic, Terry can cancel many of his moves into Triple Wolf. By pressing the special button after connecting with one of his standard attacks or most special moves (i.e. all except Power Wave and Power Geyser) Terry will cancel the endlag of an attack straight into a Triple Wolf.

The move combines Power Dunk, a special move of Terry's, with Triple Geyser and Buster Wolf, two of Terry's Super Special Moves from the Fatal Fury series. Triple Geyser, an improved version of the Power Geyser, was first introduced in Fatal Fury 3, where it was a Hidden Super Desperation Move that required a hidden button combo pre-match to use (as Power Geyser was a Desperation Move). Later games in the King of Fighters series include it a Super Desperation Move usable when Terry has a full super meter, and when his health is low enough to use a Desperation Move at will. Buster Wolf was introduced in Garou: Mark of the Wolves. The incorporation of Power Dunk in the Final Smash could be a reference to Real Bout Fatal Fury Special, where it is used as the first part of Terry's Hidden Super Desperation Move, High-Angle Geyser, or The King of Fighters XIV, where it is turned into a super move in the form of Star Dunk Volcano.
Terry's cries of "Here's the big one!" and "BUSTER WOLF!!" in this Final Smash are heavily inspired by his voice clips for EX Buster Wolf from The King of Fighters XIV. The name of the move, however, is original to Smash, though the Wolf part of the name refers to his nicknames Legendary Hungry Wolf, Wild Wolf and The Legendary Wolf as well as the move Buster Wolf.
