|Pictures of Zangief|
As Zangief tells Ralph, he was crushing a man's skull between his thighs "like tiny sparrow egg" when he began having an existential crisis, wondering what he was doing with his life. He wondered why he couldn't be a hero until he had a sudden epiphany: If he was a good guy, who would fill his role of crushing mans' skulls between thighs? And he thus told himself, "Zangief, you are a bad guy, but this does not mean you are a bad guy."
He is also seen wandering around Game Central Station alongside fellow Street Fighter character, Chun-Li. While Ralph was looking in the lost and found in Tapper's for a lost medal, he finds Zangief's speedo that he somehow lost in there, and Ralph is disgusted by it. When Markowski from Hero's Duty comes by and Ralph steals his uniform, he puts Zangief's speedo on him and leaves him there passed out.
Zangief: The Red Cyclone
"The muscle-bound, hairy-chested, bear-grappling, mohawked wrestler from Street Fighter is a regular at the Bad-Anon meetings."
- A common group of Street Fighter fans believe is that Zangief is not a "Bad Guy" in Street Fighter. Rich Moore has said that he made Zangief a bad guy in the film because he couldn't defeat Zangief as a kid.
- However, Zangief was a bad guy in the live-action Street Fighter movie and the cartoon series based on it.
