Street Fighter’s preeminent wrestler, Zangief, returns to Street Fighter 5 to slam some more hapless bodies with extreme prejudice.
Known as the Red Cyclone in his native country of Russia, Zangief is a living, breathing mountain of muscle who wrestles bears for fun. Adding to his iconic command grabs, he can now absorb two hits from his opponents without getting knocked back and can spin like a cyclone, drawing them closer to him.
Along with Birdie, Zangief has the most health in Street Fighter V, meaning he could take a lot of abuse before throwing in the towel. Watch his introduction trailer and let us know if he’s the character for you...
