Click here for more information about Zangief's other fighting game appearances.

Zangief simply can't help but express himself in everything that he does, including Flash Combos. While he won't admit to anything up front, he secretly loves changing costumes. Nothing pleases a crowd more than when a pro-wrestler appears with a new look, and Zangief has a wide array. In his evolution combo, he gives a very quick lesson on the evolution of man; from ape, to Neanderthal, to Cro-Magnon complete with the discovery of fire. During his Pickax combo, he rattles his opponent with a jackhammer, before whacking them over the head with a pickax. In his Dinner Table Combo, he slams down a table and demands to be served food, reading the newspaper until it arrives, whereupon he tears the paper in half, and flips the table over in disgust. And last but not least, Zangief really shows his roots with the Cossack Combo, as he dons a Soviet Union outfit and performs a Russian kick dance… all over his opponent.

Zangief seeks to meet Felicia in order to have her gigs land in Mother Russia, at Mr. President's request. But she would not relent without a fight...

Zangief shows off his costume for his alter ego, the Red Cyclone in two of his Guard Crush moves. He also shows his penchant for breaking the rules, as many pro wrestlers do. During his Arcade-Stick-Right.png+Arcade-Button-Special.png Guard Crush, he whacks his opponent with a folding chair. And in his Arcade-Stick-Down.png+Arcade-Button-Special.png Guard Crush, he uses the match bell to knock his opponent high into the air.
