DescriptionEditZangief performs a one-step forward-turning back slap angled low, with his hand engulfed in a colored (usually blue or green) energy.
TacticsEditThis move is quite powerful and has good range, due to Zangief's size and forward momentum. The attack closes distances quite effectively, and can even dissipate the fireballs and other projectiles that Zangief hates so much. The EX version is fast enough to end combos safely, but the move is generally unsafe if blocked or missed.
- Contrary to popular belief "Banishing Flat" is actually a mistranslation of "Vanishing Flat", the moves properly translated name.
