(During forward jump)

Description[edit | edit source]


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 | edit source]

This move is Zangief's hardest hitting cross-up. 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 mix-up 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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