Zangief is a protagonist from the Street Fighter series. He appeared in the fifth episode of Death Battle, Haggar VS Zangief, where he fought against Mike Haggar from the Final Fight series.

History

Zangief is a national Russian hero nicknamed the "Red Cyclone". The President promised Zangief the country's full support in exchange for traveling around the world and showing off the might of the Soviet Union (and to improve his image abroad, an objective which Zangief wasn't made aware of).

He then participates in the second World Warrior Tournament, hosted by Shadaloo, at the behest of the president, but loses. After the tournament, Zangief, dissatisfied with the outcome, returns to training in the Russian wilderness, wrestling bears. Eventually, he is approached by the largest wrestling organization in the world with an eye to signing the "Red Cyclone" to their promotion.
