Executed by performing a full-circle motion for either side and pressing kick, Zangief performs one of two different grabs depending on his distance from the opponent, as seen below. Both inflict large amounts of damage, and are also unblockable grab attacks.
- If the input is executed from a distance, Zangief stretches his arms out like a bear, then rushes a short distance towards his opponent (informally known as a Running Bear Grab). If the pursuit is not evaded, Zangief performs a Flying Power Bomb: he grabs the opponent by the shoulders and jumps, then slams him/her head-first into the ground.
- If the input is executed while Zangief is already close to the opponent, he instead performs the Atomic Suplex, which is also known by the name Siberian Bear Crusher: stepping behind his opponent, he grabs them around the waist and lifts them up, falling backwards while he does in order to drive them head-first into the ground; still holding onto his opponent's waist, he then flips and jumps, performing the same maneuver again from mid-air.
