A Russian Wrestler, The Red Cyclone travels the world to honor Mother Russia and prove he's the greatest wrestler in the world.
Zangief is a grappler in its purest sense. His goal is simple: get in, command grab, and win. His sluggish mobility and lack of tools to get around fireballs do make this somewhat of a difficulty, but nevertheless, when he gets in, you better start praying. His infamous SPD is what his whole kit is centered around. The fear that this single move can put into the opponent is exponential, and is the core of his entire game plan. To be played effectively, Zangief requires lots of smart conditioning, making your opponents escape one option so you can punish with another option (ie. delay tech gets beaten by SPD). He also requires a strong understanding and ability to pick up on opponent's habits, so you can make more correct reads and guesses to further deliver devastating damage to your opponent. If you think you've got what it takes to have the patience and ability to pick up on habits, then give Zangief a shot.

|SFV Frame Data Glossary|
How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for.
Attack level is L for low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks (which can be blocked high or low) and M for overhead (must be blocked standing). T is for throw attacks (which cannot be blocked).
Available cancel options.
Hit confirm windows written as Specials & CAs/Target Combos/V-Trigger. Notation may denote V-Skill only cancel windows in Specials.
Crush Counter hit advantage written as opponent state, frame advantage, and v-gauge gain on hit.
Attack damage on hit. Notation may denote multi-hit or "sweet spot" damage values on certain frames.
These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will end before the defender can act again. If the number is negative, the defender will be able to act before the attacker and maybe even punish. KD refers to knockdown on hit.

How many frames it takes for a move to finish after it's been active.
How many frames it takes before the move becomes 'active' or have a hit box. The last startup frame and the first active frame are the same frame, meaning all values are written as Startup + 1.
