From Dustloop Wiki

Overview

Overview

Chipp Zanuff is the ultimate speed demon. He has phenomenal running speed and good air mobility thanks to his triple jump. His special moves provide strong movement and pressure to keep his opponent guessing. He even possesses the unique ability to run up walls.

Chipp has many fast attacks and strong pressure tools. f.S is fast, has good range, and safe special cancels. 5K can gatling into itself for strong stagger pressure, and 6K is a safe overhead. j.2K is a divekick that has great synergy with Chipp’s triple jump. Resshou is a rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. that can lead to highly delayable follow-ups, forcing his opponent to guess. Safe tools like these can condition opponents to block, opening them up for riskier mix-ups. Some choices are Genrou Zan, a long-ranged command grab, and Alpha Blade, a grounded cross-up Attacking your opponent after changing which horizontal side you are on, usually by jumping over them.. After scoring a knockdown, Chipp gets powerful Okizeme in the form of safe jumps, cross-ups and high/low mix-ups. Rotating through these options gives Chipp an unparalleled offense.

On the flip side, Chipp’s defense value is the weakest in the game. Mistakes are so detrimental that trading hits back and forth is not an option. He is provided some potent defensive options in his quick 5P, 2K, and his DP Dragon Punch A move that has invulnerability during its startup, long recovery, and a rising motion., but durability is still no strength of his. Chipp has the mobility and tools needed to out-maneuver his opponent and avoid unnecessary risks.

If you want to overwhelm opponents with unrivaled speed and plethora of relentless pressure tools, then look no further than Chipp Zanuff.

This button is best used as a fast anti-air or a quick punish to interrupt an opponent's strings, but can also be used for tight pickups in some combos. Its low recovery and self-cancel make it quite safe to whiff and easy to confirm.

5P has a two-stage hitbox that activates near Chipp's bicep, before it fully extends to his fist.

Excellent all-around move that leads into strong stagger pressure.

Very fast 5K with decent range, while also being jump and dash cancellable. It is slower than his 5P but can't be crouched making it easier to use. It also has better range than 2K, making it useful as a punish. Good for pressure as it chains into itself and has multiple overhead/low gatling options.

Dash cancelling 5K is somewhat situational since Chipp can easily run back in after the move recovers instead.

  • Jump and dash cancellable.

Chipp's strongest whiff punish tool

Chipp's f.S is extremely fast, has excellent range, and combos easily into Resshou from range or 5H/2H up close. This move shines when combined with Chipp's dash, enabling near full-screen punishes. Dashing f.S also lets Chipp start rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. pressure from surprisingly far away.

Despite its reach, f.S is not well suited for whiffing in neutral to control space. Its extended hurtbox leaves Chipp vulnerable to counterpokes and it also has a notable weakness to lows.

Chipp's main counter-poking tool and only disjointed button (other than 6P)

Slightly slower than f.S but safer to whiff. This move is excellent for controlling space and stopping careless approaches. 5H combos into Resshou at most ranges or P Alpha Blade on counter-hit, but the large knock back can make it difficult to convert midscreen.

5H sends the opponent into a long tumbling animation from any air-hit, giving Chipp enough advantage to set up his corner mix.

Uncharged Dust

Universal overhead attack, and Chipp's primary option for a quick overhead.

Chipp summons Dodomezaki the sea otter in front of him for his dust attack. The otter is NOT disjointed from Chipp. Can be used as a gatling from 5K/2K/c.S for a mixup and RC'd for further combo extensions.

  • Uncharged dust on-hit is 0 or neutral frame advantage and causes float
  • Causes 80% proration on-hit

Charged Dust

A slower and more reactable version of Chipp's universal overhead attack with huge reward on-hit. When use mid-combo it will launch the opponent high in the air making it possible to connect a followup. 5[D] also finds use in some of Chipp's optimal combo routes.

5[D] granting a meterless combo on-hit makes it a risky but useful alternative to 6K for mixups.

  • Data in [] represents values when fully charged.
  • Charged dust leads to soft knockdown (+36).
  • Holding up during the hitstop frames of charged dust will activate homing jump:
    • Doing a homing jump will cause an area shift and put the opponent into a unique high damaging air combo state.
    • Pressing any attack twice without jump/dash cancel will activate the homing jump finisher causing a hard knockdown (+23).
    • Homing jump combos can sometimes increase meter balance enough to activate positive bonus.

A situational pressure and abare option.

Chipp's 2P may be slower than his 5P, but it does not whiff on crouchers making it much easier to use in pressure. It also hits high enough to stuff attacks that might go over his 2K, making it useful for pressure and defense in some match ups.

Chipp's primary low option for opening up the opponent.

A fast but stubby low which plays a key role in Chipp's neutral/pressure game. This move is extremely threatening when combined with Chipp's dash speed, enabling whiff punishes from surprisingly far. On successful hit, Chipp can gatling into his 2D for okizeme or link into c.S for a full combo on counterhit.

2K's low attack level and low recovery makes it very useful for tick throws or pressure resets. It is also an extremely strong conversion tool, especially when the opponent is close to the ground.

A crouching poke and juggle tool that covers the ground in front of Chipp.

2S is useful in neutral for stopping low-hitting moves that might otherwise cause f.S to whiff. It has quite a long recovery, but its unique whiff cancelThe ability to cancel into another move even after a whiff into 2H makes it extremely scary to challenge. This also makes 2S exceptional in pressure, letting Chipp delay-cancel and catch backdashes with ease.

In combos 2S will pop-up an airborne opponent making is useful for juggles/pickups. Despite its role as a juggle tool, it suffers from a short hitbox which can cause it to whiff in unexpected places.

Fast, long range sweep option that can low profile some attacks when spaced.

Useful for poking in neutral and counter-poking against moves that would cause f.S to whiff. However, 2D will often lose without proper spacing, due to the tall hurtbox near Chipp's body. 2D's hard knockdown makes it very rewarding on-hit, letting Chipp apply okizeme.

Most useful as a frame trap and punish tool due to its long startup, but 6H can also be used as a counter-poke for some extended normals. This button has a decent vertical hitbox which can be used to catch jump out attempts from surprisingly far.

On normal-hit 6H forces the opponent to crouch, but it will cause a ground bounce on air-hit. Causes a big ground bounce on air/ground counter-hit leading to some of Chipp's flashiest and most damaging combos.

Long range air-to-air option and important combo tool.

Chipp performs a horizontal kick that hits twice. The first hit pops the opponent up enabling combo extensions, and the second hit knocks the opponent away even if the first hit whiffed. Many of Chipp's combos rely on hitting the first kick while cancelling or whiffing the second.

The second hit of j.K is most useful during highly scaled combos where gatlings might whiff.

Chipp's primary jump-in move.

Chipp performs a back flip while swinging his blade. j.H is extremely active, hitting behind, below, and finally in front of Chipp. The movement of the active hitbox can create ambiguous cross-ups where Chipp appears to hit his opponent from the "wrong" side.

When connected high enough, Chipp can follow up with a gatling/special cancel or if he hits deep enough string into 2K/c.S/2S. Has a "sour spot" height where Chipp can't easily cancel, and can be thrown after landing if he tries to string into a button. Despite this, j.H can be scary to challenge due to the multiple hits and gatling options.

A fast jump-in attack and excellent punish tool thanks to its horizontal range.

Outside of punishes, j.D is often used as a gatling option to achieve multiple overheads during pressure or to end air combos. In combos it will always knock down the opponent at an angle giving Chipp more advantage the lower it is used. j.D is exceptionally strong for securing wall splats due to its launch angle and high wall damage.

j.D can lead to some unfavorable RPS Rock Paper ScissorsA situation wherein an attacker and a defender have options that only beat certain responses from their opponent. For example, on wakeup a defending opponent may use a reversal to stop an attacker from using an attack, but the attacker can also block to defeat the reversal. If the attacker blocks, the defender can use the opportunity to take the offensive. situations if blocked higher up so this move should not be used recklessly. Combos into 2K at lower heights but can also combo c.S/2S on counterhit or if it hits very deep.

Orange Wild Assault: Fast startup with extremely high momentum when canceled. See here for more info on Wild Assault types.


An extremely versatile advancing strike that's useful in nearly every situation.

Chipp can confirm literally any hit into a wall break combo using Wild Assault. Its ability drain the opponent's Burst makes it highly valuable for Burst-safe combos.

Wild Assault's forward momentum and wide cancel options can lead to tricky sequences, making it equally useful in Chipp's pressure.

Chipp's only invincible reversal.

A fast and active rising slash that hits twice. Best used as a reversal to escape pressure, but it can also be used as a committal anti-air option.

Beta Blade also finds use as a niche combo tool. Its initial proration and launch properties make it unfavourable as a starter/ender, but TK An input method to perform a special move in the air as fast as possible after you leave the ground.

Powerful pressure reset and oki option.

Chipp sends a clone forward that will attack the opponent leaving Chipp plus. Good for pressure resets and oki, but makes weak combo starter/filler due to high RISC loss, high wall damage, and the awkward launch. Cannot be converted midscreen without meter but can give a small meterless combo in the corner.

Damage dealt to the clone is also dealt to Chipp making this a strong but risky pressure reset tool. Chipp and the projectile can be struck at the same time leading to DOUBLE damage.

  • Launches opponent on-hit
  • Deals very high wall damage
  • Clone becomes an independent projectile with PRC

The large cancel window and threat of delayed follow ups make Resshou difficult to challenge despite minus. Chipp can also kara-cancel Resshou to effectively skip directly into Rokusai or Senshuu.

Resshou is an important combo tool which causes a wall bounce on airborne opponents. This allows Chipp to extend combos without cornering himself.

Flip kick that hits overhead and the end of Chipp's rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed..

Senshuu makes Chipp airborne and raises his hurtbox, allowing him to defeat some low-pokes. Although it leads to a soft knockdown on-hit, Chipp is left close and can apply pressure. It is fairly unsafe on-block and leaves Chipp vulnerable to a punish. This move is best used against a conditioned opponent unless Chipp has meter to Roman Cancel.

Chipp can also kara-cancel Resshou into Senshuu for a surprise overhead attack. Although kara-Senshuu is slower than Chipp's other overhead options, it can can come at any point in a string making it difficult to react to.

Also known as "Leaf Grab" by the community.

A slow but threatening command grab that can be extremely difficult to punish.

Chipp vanishes and leaps forward to grab his opponent. This move is extremely active and has a raised hurtbox making it great for defeating low-pokes, backdashes, and throws. Chipp is not invincible during the startup, and can be hit out of the animation with a jab (even on opponent's wakeup, due to throw invulnerability.)

Has a long startup making it easy to react to, but the recovery is very short for a command grab. It may be extremely difficult for some opponents to punish a whiffed grab, especially if they jump to avoid it.

  • Can PRC at any point or RRC during the last hit

(NoteThe square with a yellow underline indicates the first frame that you can Roman Cancel and maintain the projectile.)

An air projectile that covers a decent angle for harassing an opponent.

Chipp freezes in the air and throws a shuriken downward. The shuriken itself has a large hurtbox allowing the opponent to hit it and nullify it. Shuriken mostly has niche uses for situations like interrupting  Leo's Brynhildr stanceBack-turn stance or securing a chip kill.

This move is best used sparingly, as it presents no real threat on hit or block while leaving Chipp extremely vulnerable. All risk and no reward.

  • Freezes Chipp midair during the throw; preserves air momentum.
  • Counterhit recovery state and special landing recovery.
  • TK Shuriken recovers in the air and preserves air options.

Wall Run

Hold 6 while dashing toward the wall or 236[P] (Air OK) toward the wall or 236[K] toward the wall

Wall Run

Chipp's defining move in Guilty Gear Strive and the core of his corner mix.

Chipp dashes up along the wall, gaining access to special versions of his grounded normals. Chipp can carry his opponent up along the wall with his wall run moves for some of his most damaging combos. Wall Run is primarily used to extend combos after a counterhit 2H or after an up-drift Red RC (88RRC) at the corner.

  • Can also use dash macro toward the wall, or 6 (6) during Alpha Blade
  • Air Alpha Blade DiagonalGGST Chipp Zanuff Alpha Blade Diagonal Air.pngGuardAllStartup28~41Recovery21Advantage-6 will not start a wall run
  • Chipp can wall run for up to 26F; hits reset the timer to 20F.

Escape

Wall Run can be cancelled at any point with Escape, allowing Chipp to apply pressure/mixups or extend combos. Wall Run cancels are especially strong immediately after Alpha Blade, allowing Chipp to re-position quickly during his offense.

  • Press 4 (4) or 2 (2) to perform Escape and leap from the wall.
    • 4 (4) sends Chipp away from the wall
    • 2 (2) sends Chipp down along the wall
  • Chipp automatically performs Escape (Horizontal) when the Wall Run timer ends

Wall Run Moves

Special moves that are only available during Chipp's Wall Run. These moves are visually similar to Chipp's grounded normals but have unique properties separate from their grounded counterparts.

  • Large and disjointed hitboxes
  • Shorter total duration on-hit
  • Can be cancelled into gatlings or Escape on-block/hit

(NoteThe red line indicates that the move has become active, but has a variable recovery window.)

A full screen overdrive that can be used for burst-safe damage, or to call out certain moves on reaction.

Chipp dashes upwards diagonally and goes back and forth across the screen. If Chipp hits the opponent, they'll be juggled around the air before Chipp slams them back to the ground with a hard knock down. Chipp will land close to the opponent with enough advantage to apply pressure or mix ups.

Zansei Rouga has a higher minimum damage than his other overdrive Banki Messai, but the inability to wall break often makes this difference quite small. The advantage is also not as strong as Banki Messai (with or without a wall break) making Zansei Rouga somewhat situational.

  • Cannot break the wall and does not stage transition
  • Resets the opponent to mid-screen with a hard knockdown
  • Can be Purple RC'd at any point for combo extensions.

Chipp's wall break overdrive

Chipp enters a quick animation before dashing across the screen. If the move connects with the opponent, Chipp will summon his clones (and Dodomezaki the sea otter) to pummel his opponent. Primarily used as a combo ender near the corner, but the unorthodox superflash also allows Chipp to punish fireball moves in VERY specific situations.

Banki Messai has the unfortunate tendency to scale extremely poorly so this move should not be relied upon for its damage. However, the ability to wall break makes it very useful for securing okizeme/positive bonus. Can be reliably activated from a kara cancel A type of cancel where the beginning of an action is quickly canceled into another before the first action completes its startup. making it good for converting stray hits.

  • Active frames trigger by proximity.
  • Covers about 3/4 of the screen, advancing during the super flash and startup.
  • Can be Red Roman Cancelled either during the first few hits or after the last.
