Zangief's Saving Throw

It doesn't matter who you are, Zangief is going to toss your ass.

I'm not much of a Street Fighter guy, and I still hold a minor grudge against Zangief for biting his freshest moves from Metro City Player Mike Haggar, but there's no denying that the red cyclone has a certain knack for tossing dudes around. If you possess even a shred of doubt about Zangief's capacity for grabbing dudes and then throwing dudes, I'd like to direct your attention to this seven-minute video, which was brought to our attention by Capcom's Seth Killian, of 'Gief giving the grief to virtually every character in every game he's appeared in. No one is spared his spine-crushing fury!

Servbot got SERVED. And did he just piledrive a tyrannosaurus? Wow.

the video also reminds me of how much I hate the fact that his ultra in SFIV can kill Chun Li with full life. probably.

You can never tire of seeing Tha 'Gief wrestle a dinosaur.

Posted by coonce

Posted by coonce

....and this is just ridiculous.





Posted by SpecialBuddy

HAHA the Geif wins again!

Posted by TheFreeMan

The timing is this video was crazy. He countered some Hypers with perfect timing.

Oh yeah, Zangief rules! Any man who can take piledriver Hulk, Juggernaut, and fire breathing T-Rexes is a legend.

Where was Zangief throwing Zangief?

Posted by SinGulaR

I remember how much of a pain in the ass it was trying to finish SF2 on the SNES with Zangief.

Posted by REDRUN
Reason No. 23 to fear Zangief: He wears a banana hammock.



Spam your fireballs or you would get a Gief 360.

@coonce

That would be serv-bot.  He's from Mega Man.

This is the ultimate Zangief match-up as far as I'm concerned.

I'm glad I have an excuse to share this with you all now.

Zangief, good for doing challenges! :D

@ REDRUN

ROFLMAO

@Coonce The lil guy is Servbot, he is entertaining and awesome. He was in Marvel vs Capcom 2. I think he is somehow connected to the Mega Man series.


All that matters is he is the best dude that gets crushed in this video, and that he throws little paper airplanes as a taunt =)
Posted by Jimbo7676

Man he just destroyed that dinosaur.

Posted by SuperfluousMoniker

Concentrated ownage.

Posted by ComradeCrash

That...was...epic!!

Posted by DoMakeSayThink

Haha that was pretty flipping awesome, was crazy to see all those street fighter games aswell. I want to play the VS Capcom games now, they look insane.

Posted by WiqidBritt

interesting that they included a couple of Mugen games

Posted by RomeoInc

What game is it where Zangief throws the table in a rather uncivil manner, it looks freakin awesome! It starts at 5:47.

Akuma was so perplexed by the Gief's sheer mass that he took a dive!

Posted by DannyJ

He sure can tear people apart. Highlight was the table flipping special imo

Posted by SoulTaker

That was simply Awesome.

Posted by Artemis_D

Wait... did he just fucking piledrive a dinosaur?  Fuck what you heard, Zangief for life, fool.

Posted by MasturbatingBear

I laughed like crazy when he slammed the t-rex, and the servbot

Posted by Octopus_Prime

best was the table flipping move
brilliant

Posted by Terrell

Zangief is cheap, always has been. Always will be!

Posted by Gregomasta

Man, what an abusive asshole flipping that table over and ruining the lunch Morrigan made for him.

Edited by frsty13

The table flipping is in Super Gem Fighter.

Posted by Meltbrain

I just added this video to my favourites like a few days ago! Totally stoked you guys showed it off. I've been following the Dogface show for a bit now.

Posted by Sweep

Zangief fighting Hulk would be fairly epic...

LMAO at 5:37!

Akuma: "Prepare youself..."

Zangief: "...FOR MOTHER RUSSIA!!"

*Zangief continues pwnage*

XD

Posted by Media_Master

wow

Posted by churrific

that part with the aerial combo on rogue was the best

Posted by Ivanetc

I wonder if Zangief can hug someone without throwing them.


Cause I sure want a hug ;
