Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Zangief, also known as the Red Cyclone, is a Russian wrestler and a character from the Street Fighter series.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Zangief is a Master spirit. In the World of Light, he is the third spirit encountered on the World Tour sub-world. The Zangief spirit battle is a stamina battle against Incineroar (with the opponent having more powerful throws and physical attacks) on the Boxing Ring stage with the music "Zangief Stage Type A" from Street Fighter II playing.

Once the battle is won, Zangief becomes available in the Dojo to teach the Overthrow Style to the player's spirits. Said style increases throw power, grab range, and grab power, but decreases attack power, special move power, and item attack.
