YouTuber The Prince is putting together a small video series showing all the different ways the cast of Street Fighter V can beat Zangief’s V-Reversal. In part 1, he shows off options for Laura, Birdie, Akuma, Necalli, Karin, Rashid, and Nash:

The vast majority of these take advantage of the fact that you can throw out a special cancelable normal, and then react to the V-Trigger flash with a special or super. There are some interactions that go beyond that, however: for example, Birdie’s V-Trigger activation actually hitting Zangief standing during the Red Cyclone’s V-Reversal.
