Is Sagat's new visual design his best yet? What about Cody's? And why hasn't Zangief ever changed? Vote in our final SF5 'Who wore it best?'

A look at Ibuki, Sagat, Cody, Birdie and Zangief's designs from over the years

I'm concluding my "Who wore it best?" series for Street Fighter 5 with one last post, this time looking at Sagat, Cody, Birdie, Zangief and Ibuki's character designs from over the years.

I made it a rule that characters had to appear in at least three different (numbered) Street Fighter titles over the years to qualify for this, and could therefore only nab five this time around.

As for Cody and Sagat, we haven't actually seen their gameplay designs for SF5 yet, so the brief glimpses we've gotten from the Season 3 DLC reveal will have to do for now.

Considering his actual body transformation for Street Fighter 5, Birdie has arguably undergone the most change since his start back in SF1. Sagat has had fairly minimal changes, though his new tattered look in SF5 seems to deviate from most others.

Zangief has been rocking his same red wrestling gear, scars, chest hair and bracelets for his entire career, but we had to give the Red Cyclone some love as well. Check out the character evolutions in the gallery here and then vote for your favorite iterations after the jump.

Be sure to take a look at the results of (and still vote yourself) on part one and part two of our "Who wore it best?" series for Street Fighter 5 if you haven't already.
