Chie is an up-close-and-personal heavy-hitting rushdown with good speed and a plethora of multihitting normals that allow for easy active switch shenanigans. Her pressure and mixup are great, with access to powerful resets, baits, punishes, and unorthodox cancels which allow for her to easily open up opponents. She has one of the highest damage outputs in the game via Power Charge, and can very easily down an opponent with just one combo due to it. However, she struggles with the neutral game, having short and stubby normals alongside highly telegraphed distance closers which can make it a struggle for her to get in without the help of an assist or incredible timing.
Nonetheless, Chie is a short, spunky powerhouse who provides a unique playstyle full of personality and is never a bad choice for newcomers and veterans alike.

Fastest Attack
4A (5F)
A+D (Catch 1~25F)
236B+C (14F)
  • Great damage potential without meter.
  • Highest damage potential in the game with meter.
  • Good corner game.
  • Strong close range pressure.
  • Relatively low skill floor
  • Getting in range to actually execute on that pressure and damage potential can be hard.
  • Very reliant on assists and meter to use her full potential.
  • Stubby normals.

Power Charge
Chie's Power Charge gives all of her attacks a significant damage increase, capable of doing enough damage to down a single character in one combo.

Chie's go-to for mashing out of blockstrings and good for pressure due to its cancel options. It's short-range limits of how often you can use it, however.

Chie has the rare trait of being able to activate Cross-Raid from both her 4A autocombo. This makes it useful in cases where the 5A autocombo would take too long to get to Cross-Raid.

Chie's primary combo and pressure starter. It can be used to abare in cases where 4A would fail.

  • Jump cancellable.

5AA is important combo filler as it vacuums the opponent towards you. This also makes it good for pressure as you can use it to set up a mixup with j.C or reset pressure.

  • Either hit can be jump cancelled, allowing for crossups in the corner in addition to other setups.
  • Frame traps into 5AAA,discouraging the opponent to mash out.

Mostly used as combo filler but can also be used for Active Switches as hitting thrice gives your partner time to do what they want.

  • One of the few moves Chie can't jump cancel.

Same as 4AAAA

5BB 1100×2 All 19 3(7)2 Total: 48 -1 [-2] B

5B is Chie's longest reaching ground poke. It's fast and has good reach both horizontally and vertically, being able to stuff opponents trying to approach on the ground and with instant air dashes. Though it can be risky to throw out because of the very long recovery her 5B has. Tomoe can be hit during startup so there is a risk of having your persona broken when challenging your opponents moves in neutral. Aim to stop an opponent from poking, jumping or retreating.

  • Dash Cancelable, Dash Cancel frame data within brackets []
  • Can be reverse beat into 5A

5BB is an important combo piece for Chie that can allow her to combo into B Herculean Strike when the conditions are met. For more details on 5BB > 214B/C, you can read more in the Combo Theory section of her Combo page. The second hit of 5BB isn't a true blockstring which means it can be used as a frame trap, it also means everyone can reversal action out of it if timed correctly. However, this move not being a true blockstring allows for mixups during sandwich situations, if you Active Switch just before the second B lands.

Probably Chie's best close range normal. It's fast, hits low, has a fair amount of range, it's good for stagger pressure and yes, it's great at low profiling. All this and it's only 1 frame slower than 4A!

  • Can be chained into 4A and 5A up to 2 times

Chie's primary anti-air. It has great horizontal reach and good vertical reach. However, the forward movement can make it tricky to use and the bad head Invuln forces you to be accurate with its usage. Still, when used properly,it can get the good done and can lead to your opponent's death.

  • Moves Chie forward

j.A 1500 High 8 3 13 H
j.AA 1500 High 7 5 14 H

Chie's j.A has a good horizontal hitbox, making jump up j.A a very nice way to catch air approaches. You'll mostly want to use this in situations where the opponent does not have to commit to pushing a button when they're approaching you from the air. In these situations, jump up j.A is less risky to throw out compared to risking whiffing an Anti-Air due to the opponent using additional air options or other things.

  • Good air to air normal

j.AA is mostly used in combos and pressure to confirm the opponent got hit or is blocking.

Chie's go-to jump-in. It has good vertical range and is great for whiff-punishing grounded pokes you jumped over. It's also good for protecting yourself while falling.

It can be used as an instant overhead against  Tager, Hakumen and  Blitztank. On Tager, you can follow up solo but on the other 2 you'll need an assist.

A great mixup and neutral tool. You can use it set up a gapless high/low mix or to completely reset your pressure after a jump cancel or on your opponent's wakeup as oki. This also makes it a good Active Switch tool.

It can also be used as a wall in neutral due to its long active. However, Tomoe can still be broken so it's not unstoppable but still strong.

Just remember it has long startup so you can easily be hit out of hit.

  • Can convert it into a combo by linking 2A > 5B

Unlike most throws,Chie's can't be special or super canceled.Is very threatening during power charge as Chie can do 4-8K in a single hit. On certain characters you can do 2B > 5BB which will let you do B Herc loops which will do more damage than using 2A..If your fast enough,you can do throw>214BC(Level 1 power charge)>2A.

A decent counter. It will beat most safejumps but is a poor anti-air and can't be used for air-unblockables. The followup can allow for safejumps. How effective they are are dependent on how many of the hits land.

  • First hit is a low.


Is a decent air combo ender and can be used in cases where j.236B would fail.

Rampage is important for Chie's combos as lets her close the distance. The air version is the same, used to bring the opponent back down to the ground but it has the potential to drop the combo depending on distance and height.

  • You can influence the distance travelled by holding backwards or forwards during the start up of the Rampage

Useful in the corner since it allows her to get loops with 5A.

  • Can into 214X

A decent combo ender with similar properties to 236B.

This move can be used in combos and can be a good cross up tool depending on the assist covering it. You can also combo off this move without an assist depending on the angle the kick connects or if it counter hits. Generally, you don't want to risk using this move as an anti-air because you can easily get blocked, hit out of it or just straight up miss completely. But eh, you're a Chie player and this move is the most "Chie" move on God's green earth, so we say let it rip and kick for the stars! (Please note that we at Dustloop will not be held accountable for any lost matches, dropped sets or crushed self-esteems)

Used soley to end combos, either after 236AA or in cases where 236A or 236B would whiff.


A great combo tool, mainly 214B/C loops. These have good damage and great corner carry. It can also be used in neutral when combined with a long range assist like  Vatista's 6PBBTag Vatista LumenStellaElLance.pngGuardAllStartup(18)+39RecoveryTotal: (18)+63Advantage+18 to close the gap.

236C 4500 All 30 12 12 -3 H
j.236C 4500 All 13 12 12 H

A high damage combo tool. It's longer startup makes it harder to combo into but its faster recovery makes it safer to use in neutral so you can use it to close the gap if you can get around the startup.

  • More range than the meterless version


The air version is identical to the ground version, except that there's no extra run animation making it a lot faster. You can also only use it once per jump but it's possible to use standard Dragon Kick right after using EX Dragon Kick.

Both versions of EX Dragon Kick are useful for combos and can do ludicrous amounts of damage when used with power charge.

This is literally a better version of 214B. Has the same startup and distance as the meterless version but deals more damage,is always plus on block regardless of distance and launches higher on hit. Despite that, the damage you get from it often isn't worth meter that you want to save Power Charge so only use it if it will kill or during Resonance Blaze when you have meter to burn.

Power Charge is probably the reason you're playing Chie. It allows Chie to make large comebacks and TOD every character in the game. It's the main thing you will be saving meter for so remember to learn your combos to use it to its full potential.

  • Applies to her assist as well but is not very practical.
  • Lasts for 2 seconds
  • Using God's Hand will automatically end Power Charge.
  • Successive Power Charges will stack the levels

Level 1

Short Recovery allows you to use this mid-combo without an assist leading to low-cost/High-reward combos(like 10K solo for 2 bars). Can also be used to pause the screen and get your bearings or to see what the opponent is doing and if you can punish.

  • 100% Damage Boost.

Level 2

Long recovery means that you have no choice but to use an assist to use it mid-combo. This version is mainly used in cases where you don't have 4 bars for Power Charge > God Hand but with level 2 you can kill them regardless.

  • 200% Damage Boost

Level 3

Level 3 allows Chie to kill the opponent of any random hit making for the momentum-based victories Chie is known for. However, its very long recovery makes it that Cross Combo or Resonance Blaze is required to combo into it.

  • 300% Damage Boost
  • Has projectile invulnerability from frame 1

Agneyastra is a great neutral tool as it both locks down the opponent and covers Chie as she approaches. However, the opponent will often pushblock Chie which mitigates the effect of the super. Since Chie wants to save her meter for Power Charge, you need to decide if it's worth it to use Agneyastra to approach. However in Resonance Blaze, you can use Agneyastra liberally as you have more meter so you can just force your way through as if they pushblock you, you can just use Agneyastra again.

Outside of that, Agneyastra is useful in Resonance Blaze combos as you can do 236B/C, cancel into Agneyastra, land, do level 3 Power Charge and continue the combo. This combined with its use in neutral give Chie high comeback potential with Resonance Blaze.

  • j.214B+C results in Meteors going half screen
