Zangief it up

It is somehow 30 years since the birth of Street Fighter. Show of the Week celebrates generally with Mike and Andy's fondest street fighting memories and specifically with my five fave but oft overlooked characters. Where's the love for Allen Snider, I ask you.

Street Fighter fighter Allen Snider is yet another karate man in a series full of karate men, but this time he's got a purple gi, and also sideburns that make him look a bit like a young Chuck Norris. His standout feature is having a crushingly ordinary name in a game universe full of Crimson Vipers, Rainbow Mikas and Balrogs.
