The Flying Body Press is one Zangief's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade Modifier AirArcade-Stick-Down+Arcade-Button-HPunch (During forward jump)

Description Edit


Executed by pressing down and Heavy Punch during a forward jump, Zangief spreads his arms and legs out wide and lands stomach-first on top of the opponent.

Tactics Edit

This move is Zangief's hardest hitting crossup. It can be ambiguous and easily linked into some of his combos. Additionally, if the opponent does block this move, it can potentially create a number of mixup situations, thus making the opponent guess on how to escape. However, this attack needs to be done as close to the ground as possible so that Zangief will be at an advantageous position whether the move hits or gets block.



  • This move is arguably based on a popular professional wrestling move called the Splash. It is sometimes referred as a body press.
