Mech-Zangief ( メカザンギエフ Mekazangiefu?, "Mecha-Zangief") is a video game character originating from the Capcom Versus series, first appearing in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter as a secret fighter. He is an anti-Zangief weapon created by Shadaloo upon whom he was also modeled after.[1]


Mech-Zangief is an even slower version of Zangief who can't block. To compensate, he gains permanent Super Armor, and he takes reduced damage from everything excluding beam-style attacks. He also cannot be knocked down or stunned, taking only a slight slowdown when hit by almost anything, and he can use a Yoga Blast-like attack, the Siberian Breath, and a new Hyper Combo, the Siberian Blizzard. He also explodes when defeated.


Marvel vs. Capcom seriesEdit

Mech-Zangief first appears in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter as a secret character. In his ending in the Japanese version, he states that he's dissatisfied with his new body, and that he wants to return to normal.

In addition to his debut appearance, Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes brought the regular Zangief back in and gave him the ability to transform into Mech-Zangief through a move called Iron Body, allowing him to stand a chance against much more speedy characters. He keeps this ability in the sequel.

SNK vs. Capcom seriesEdit

In SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS, a Mech-Zangief (named "Metal Zangief" in the US version) card is present. Its description says that Zangief was given a metal body by Shadaloo, and now he's able to swig vodka and spit it out as a fire breath, and can't defend himself. Zangief regrets his new condition, and hopes to get back to normal.

Street Fighter IV seriesEdit

Mech-Zangief appears again in Super Street Fighter IV as an alternate costume for Zangief, with a more robotic look.

Street Fighter X TekkenEdit

Mech-Zangief makes a cameo appearance in the Cosmic Elevator stage. This is retained when the stage is ported to Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Trivia Edit

  • According to her Street Fighter V profile, Mech-Zangief is Area's favorite fighter.
