Street Fighter X Tekken/Zangief
Zangief was one of the original 8 World Warriors, representing the USSR. Known as the "Red Cyclone", Zangief is known to wrestle full grown grizzly bears for fun. Now Zangief can finally wrestle a bear in a Street Fighter game.
In a nutshell
The epitome of the grappler. Slow, sluggish, lots of grabs, and dishes out tons of damage. He's not too hard to figure out how to use but it takes some creativity to use him well. He doesn't really have a good anti projectile besides the Green Hand but it isn't as reliable as, say, Law's flying kick. His grabs are 360s so they are hard to pull off and once you get in range it is tough to get them to stay still and SPD them. You've got to make some hard decisions to use 'Gief to his fullest.
