This move seems to hit on everything. Is it just overpowered or is there an option I'm not aware of. I use Blanka and what was once an easy match-up has become a nightmare.

I must have a bad timing cause it's always 50/50 chance of success as an anti air..

Lariat is invulnerable to fireballs and upper body invulnerable. Don't jump at Gief unless he's been knocked down. It's incredibly unsafe on block and has a f***ton of recovery, so if you can bait one out, you can get a gigantic punishment on it.

Like many AA specials, you should try to do it as late as possible, because the upper body invulnerability doesn't last long.
I hold you accountable for any damage done to my floof!

It tends to consistently whiff when you don't own the game.

lariat has an exposed hurtbox directly at zangief's head. With the right spacing, you can hit him while he lariats
