First Appearance: Street Fighter II

The bear wrestling pride of Russia, Zangief is a grappler's dream, especially when he became able to crush Hadoukens with his fist. Zangief has always been a character you had to be patient with.

You couldn't just rush in there like with Chun-Li or Ken. You had to wait for your opponent to make a mistake, which makes Zangief an immensely satisfying character to master. We've never mastered him ourselves, but we've seen those who have and are in utter awe of them. They don't mess around.
