Axl Low

Favorable


Axl is capable of out-zoning Happy Chaos at full screen until you've landed Curse. Once Curse is applied Axl struggles to contest moving ATR shots and or quick Steady Aim shots.

After connecting a shot, either hit or block, you're free to apply pressure and retake control of the match.

Offense


Defense

Bridget's Yo-Yo Okizeme if done correctly is unfuzzyable and a safejump, though the last part isn't important when playing Chaos. If the opponent is not using TK Roll Okizeme, Bridget is susceptible to being hit with wakeup 6P.

Once you enter the VortexAn offensive sequence that starts with a very difficult to block mixup, which then causes a knockdown if it works and loops back into the same mixup over and over again. there is no easy way out, as Bridget will still have the opportunity to continue pressure after blocking the two or more mix-up attempts that occur during Yo-Yo OkizemeFrom Japanese "起き攻め".

Chipp Zanuf

Favorable


Chipp suffers for having lower than average effective HP in this matchup.

2K and 2S are especially useful to control space, and lead to great reward on hit, but be careful not to whiff as Chipp will whiff punish you.

I-No

Favorable


I-No is difficult to contest up close, but becomes easy to zone once pushed to full screen due to lacking a normal dash.

Getting an Air Guard Crush against I-No will allow you to recover more resources than usual as well as greatly increasing the horizontal pushback of the shots.

Jack-O

Favorable


Jack-O suffers at roundstart, and in neutral. Good useage of both gun stances can deny Jack-O the opportunity to get minions out.

If Jack-O does manage to successfully get minions out in neutral they are easily killed as Chaos's gun can hit or force Jack-O to block from anywhere on screen.

2S is an incredibly strong button for controlling neutral, as most of Jack-O best buttons will lose to it.

Jack-O likely isn't to press buttons at round-start if they know the match-up. Most of Jack-O buttons lose to many of Happy Chaos' most common round starts.

Notable Interactions

  • Jack-O's 5H meterlessly punishes Scapegoat. Due to being an advancing multi-hit, if done close enough the 5H can proceed to punish Chaos even after the first hit was negated.
  • Fire ignores Defend Command. Despite being a literal gun, both variants of Fire do not count as projectiles and thus cannot be blocked by Defend Command.
  • Jack-O's j.D is always reaction punishable using Deus Ex Machina, or Fire. Even if the gun is not active you have enough time to ready the gun, allow it to focus slightly, and Fire, before she leaves Recovery. This makes Jack-O's j.D extremely risky in all situations, and generally not useful in the matchup.
  • Holding a servant prevents escape from Deux Ex Machina. After the animation, Deus Ex Machina hits on Frame 7, making it impossible for Jack-O' to safely drop a servant she is holding. In fact, attempting to do so gets Counter Hit for an additional 10% damage. This makes Deus Ex Machina naturally a very strong response to any use of holding a servant in neutral.
  • Cheer Servant On is unsafe. Normally Jack-O' can use the S version in neutral to set up, with some RPS, especially when holding a servant. Against Chaos this is not the case: she has zero options to launch a servant and hit Chaos before he can shoot her with Steady Aim, trading so favorably he can still oki with a guard crushing Steady Aim shot, giving him substantial room to disregard the servant. If Jack-O' is Cursed, he can shoot her before she even launches the servant with a long-range move like 236K or 6P. If Chaos doesn't wish to even deal with the servant, without the use of Curse, he can use Deus Ex Machina to eliminate the servant entirely, while restoring Bullets and stalling out the Cheer Servant On S buff.

Neutral

Utilize 2S often.

If Jack-O attempts to zone use Steady Aim.

Stun Dipper becomes much scarier once Ky has enough meter to RC after the first hit allowing him to stay safe on block, or get a high damage combo on hit.

Nagoriyuki

Favorable


Roundstart is incredibly important, as losing Roundstart, can often mean losing the game.

Nago's blood gauge will determine the pace of the game, Zoning is risky when it's low but one of our strongest win conditions once Nago has reached high blood.

Potemkin

Favorable


Potemkin cannot be zoned out like most of the other large characters due to the amount of armored moves he has, specifically Slide Head and Hammer Fall.

This forces you to structure your game plan around Chaos' strong neutral and pressure while leaving behind Zoning.

Neutral

Keep up curse if Testament attempts to play at full screen. Once cursed ATR and Steady Aim quick shots deny Testament the ability to use both Crow and Grave Reaper. Due to this Testament will often choose to play a more normal heavy neutral revolving around f.S, a very far reaching and fast button.

has a very slow 15F of startup.


Defense

Testament's goal is to push you to the corner and then use a combination of long-reaching fast normals, Grave Reaper, Crow, Stain State, and Arbiter Sign to lock you down until you've died. Preventing this from happening is key.

Use movement like jumping, dashing, Roll, and j.2K in order to position yourself in ways that make it harder for Testament to corner you.


Zato-1

Favorable


Both Zato and Happy Chaos struggle to deal with each other's offense.

Focus on keeping Eddie out of the game, either by denying opportunities to summon, or by killing Eddie.
