Description[edit | edit source]

Zangief jumps up at a slight angle in an attempt to grab an airborne opponent; if successful, he performs a move. The move, along with the Super Combo's height, speed, and distance, depend on the level.

At Level 1, Zangief performs a Toss Slam, at Level 2 he uses a Piledriver, and at Level 3, Zangief uses a Powerbomb.

In the Marvel vs. Capcom games, the Level 1 version is used as a special attack by Zangief and Mech-Zangief.
