Overview

Overview

WATCHA! Chie Satonaka is a Martial-Artist rushdown character that uses her speed and pressure tools to overwhelm her opponent's defenses. With high mobility, good pressure, and terrifyingly high damage potential, Chie has everything an aggressive player needs to rush their opponents into oblivion.

When the opponents are stuffed into the corner, Chie excels. Her suite of fast normals like 5A (which is 5f) and 5B help keep her opponents sitting still in pressure, while Chie's D normals keep them blocking on wakeup. Chie's pressure is lengthy and has a good number of frame-traps and safe ending points, while her mixup potential is quite strong with 5DD > IAD j.BB/2A. Once she cracks her opponents open, Chie has access to decent damage potential, good meter building and great corner carry, allowing her to drag her opponents to the corner and set up for mixups or pressure.

If Chie has meter though, her power level jumps. Chie has access to a number of incredible metered options for increasing her damage potential. Every single one of her supers either hits like a truck or enables her to hit like a truck- God's HandP4Arena Chie GodsHand.pngGuard:

lets Chie burn 50 meter for a damage buff. While in Power Charge, many of Chie's moves become Fatal Starters (depending on the version used), allowing her damage potential to skyrocket even further. Her Shadow version, in particular, highly benefits from this playstyle. Chie loves meter, and meter loves Chie.

Chie isn't without her flaws, though. Her short normals tend to make her struggle in neutral against longer pokes. She will often have to play carefully around her opponents, waiting for the right time to jump in and strike. As well, Chie really relies heavily on meter for outputting meaningful damage. Her meterless routes tend to leave a lot to be desired in terms of damage, but their aforementioned qualities tend to make up for it. All-in-all, Chie is perfect for players who want to feel the rush of high-speed decision making and strong pressure.
Playstyle
Chie Satonaka
Pros Cons
  • High Speed: Chie has fast movement and fast normals, lending her a surprisingly decent neutral game and excellent pressure.
  • Flexible Pressure: Chie has a number of great pressure options. She can set up okizeme with 5DD and go for an IAD mixup, or engage in tricky and safe pressure with her A normals.
  • ToD Potential: Her damage with meter is easily some of the highest in the game, especially in the corner and with her Shadow version.
  • Excellent Supers: Chie has very useful Supers for resetting pressure or extending combos and is good at spending meter in general. In particular, Power ChargeP4Arena Chie PowerCharge.pngGuard:

    Advantage:

    lets Chie burn her meter and skyrocket her damage potential off of nearly any exchange.
  • Functional without Persona: Chie's basic pressure and neutral, while certainly weakened, are fairly functional even when Persona Broken or silenced, and her long combos can stall for full Persona Break recovery.
  • Universal DP: Her universal DP is a below-average counter. Her ability to convert resources into damage, however, can make DP conversions hurt when they do work.
  • Resourceless Damage: Chie's meterless mid screen damage is pretty lacking and her damage without meter in general is below average.
  • Short Normals: The speed of her normals is offset by her overall stubby reach.

P4U2R Power Charge Icon.png Power Charge

Many characters have unique mechanics to play around, like Tohru Adachi's Magatsu Mandala or Teddie and Marie's item toss. Chie's mechanic is that she can smash your face in really, really hard.

Power Charge is a stackable super that allows Chie to dramatically increase her damage potential at the cost of meter. Each time Chie uses Power Charge, she gains a certain amount of stacks. These stacks increase the power of:

  • her A and B normals,
  • all supers and special moves,
  • All out Attack and Sweep,
  • autocombo attacks

Each stack raises the base damage of these moves dramatically and makes every single one of those moves a Fatal Starter. The more charges Chie has access to, the more damage she will be able to output. Stacks are removed upon successful hits. More information on this super can be found further down the page.

5A
  • Notably short reach.
  • Amazing pressure tool.
  • Gatlings into itself 3 times (but may not reach if delayed).
  • Hold [4] to prevent gatlings into 5AA.

This move is godlike for pressure because it recovers so fast. It's only very slightly minus, so microdashes afterwards can be safe to opponents mashing. Anyone with a 7f jab or slower will have an incredibly difficult time trying to mash out of Chie's 5A stagger pressure.


5AA
  • Hits twice.
  • Vacuums on hit and block.

Another great pressure reset point, as it's very safe, has plenty of gatling options, and pulls opponents back towards Chie. Great for hitconfirming 5A and stabilizing air confirms


5AAA
  • Wallbounces on hit.

Combos into 236B, which allows Chie to greatly extend midscreen autocombos for excellent corner carry unlike her Shadow version. Also links into microdash 5A, although that's of less utility in this version due to the aforementioned 5AAA > 236B combo.

5AA
  • Unsafe on block.
  • Autocombo will drop if full attack animation of 5AA goes through; it must be canceled early into 5AAA

A very awkward comboing tool due to awkward knockback and hitstun on intermediate hits. Doesn't see much use except in autocomboing, and doesn't even do a particularly good job there.


5AAA
  • Notably short reach.
  • Vacuums on hit and block.

Doesn't see much use outside autocomboing for meter. Does not automatically go into 236A unlike previous versions.

  • Gatlings into itself 3 times.
  • Gatlings into itself on whiff.

Crouching, low-hitting kick. It's arguably Chie's best poke, as it low profiles several other pokes and jumpins and has better range than 5B. Additionally, it's Chie's most important low: it's used often in stagger pressure and it's the low used in her mixups.

Quick aerial palm strike. Situational air to air. Hits overhead, but small hitbox and low hitsun makes it not as favored as j.B. The 3f less startup can come in handy occasionally though

Chie does a front flip before slamming her heel down on her opponent. Mainly used as a corner combo ender after the opponent is frozen. The airborne frames let this move be a cheeky throw bait, although it loses to some throw tech OSes. Really funny way to punish Elizabeth/Margaret Furious Action

  • Dash Cancel is -3 on block.

Decent mid-range poke for Chie. Useful in corner pressure since it can be dash/jump canceled. Can be used to trade favorably with certain long-range pokes, but it shouldn't be relied on too heavily.

  • Dash Cancel is -3 on block.
  • Applies Freeze on the first hit.

Mostly used in some of Chie's higher damaging combos due to the freeze effect giving more time to follow up with stuff you normally wouldn't be able to. As a poke, it's safe on block, and can be awkward to punish on whiff for some characters, but probably shouldn't be overused.

  • Not used often by itself.

Very slow spear attack. Last hit causes launch, but is not incredibly useful, as the startup makes it very difficult to combo into. Almost exclusively canceled into 5DD oki for certain corner okizeme setups


5DD
  • More advantageous oki tool than 2DD, but the slower startup allows it to be challenged in certain setups

Standing version is slower but makes Tomoe move forward. Using this after knocking the opponent down will force them to block, leaving Chie free to go for a mixup or other setups. Tomoe can be hit if the opponent wakes up at the correct time or if they use their Furious Action.

Note that the 2nd D can be delayed slightly to get a few more (3 max?) frames of advantage but it's a bit tricky so it's not critical to go for.

  • Not used often by itself.

Fairly slow spear attack. Last hit causes wallbounce launch, which plays a role in a few situational corner confirms. Generally canceled into 2DD for combos or oki for certain okizeme setups


2DD
  • More reliable, but less advantageous oki tool than 5DD
  • Good confirm off CH 5B.

Starts-up immediately but Tomoe will stay in place. Using this after knocking the opponent down will force them to block, leaving Chie free to go for a mixup or other setups. Tomoe can be hit if the opponent wakes up at the correct time or if they use their Furious Action.

Note that the 2nd D can be delayed slightly to get a few more (2 max?) frames of advantage but it's a bit tricky so it's not critical to go for.

  • Does not have the Head property, making it beat anti-airs consistently.
  • Does not hit overhead.
  • Can be displaced.
  • 0 on block if not canceled into landing or anything else.

Tomoe slashes in midair. A move with a surprising amount of utility. Respectable in air-to-air situations, leading to good damage on counter hit. Also has a slight reverse hitbox and low vertical hitbox, which can lead to ambiguous crossups against grounded opponents with IADs or airturns. Halts Chie's downward momentum which can sometimes cause AA's to whiff. Instant j.C also sees utility against grounded throw tech or low hitbox moves. The Persona displacement can let you be obnoxious in the corner. Honestly, not enough can be said about this move as it's arguably one of Chie's top 3 best normals.

  • Holding 4, 8, or 2 with j.D changes where Tomoe appears.
    • 5 sends Tomoe mainly forward (6 is identical to 5)
    • 8 sends Tomoe high and a bit forward (9 is identical to 8)
    • 4 sends Tomoe only slightly forward and slightly downward (7 and 1 are identical to 4)
    • 2 sends Tomoe more forward and more downward (3 is identical to 2)
  • Combo extender and situational combo ender.

Tomoe leaps up and spins her spear, followed by a downward thrust which causes knockdown. Primarily used in combos, but j.2D and j.5D can be useful for covering your approach or retreat. At certain heights, Chie can combo into j.8D, land, and pick up with 5A/5B into an extended combo.

    • Super cancelable on successful counter until landing (Can super cancel the first hit grounded and the subsequent aerial hits into Agneyastra)
    • First hit is a low.
  • Fatal Recovery during catch (normal counterhit recovery if followup kicks get blocked)

Chie summons a shield, and if hit or grabbed she'll kick in the air diagonally upward. Starts up and recovers quickly, but the counter isn't active for long. This makes it harder to time than most other Furious Actions. Can be spammed to force awakening, giving Chie 50 SP and access to Agneyastra. Keep in mind that Chie is in Fatal Recovery state during recovery.

A short flurry of jump kicks; Mostly used in combos. Causes fatal counter while power charged


A Version

Main corner combo extender, 236A~236A gives a launch that links into 5B from any ground normal starter except 2A. Repeatedly pops airborne opponents up and out of its hits, so avoid using on launched opponents.


B Version

Useful as a crouch confirm early in combos or as a combo ender later in combos. Combos more reliably on airborne opponents than 236A.


SB Version

SB has the startup of A Rampage with the damage of B Rampage, plus extra kicks. Can link 5A after. Very plus on block, nice tool to reset pressure. Holding a direction for the air version will adjust Chie's trajectory slightly. Air version maintains Chie's air momentum which means low to the ground it'll immediately end and be cancelable into Skull Cracker for an "instant" overhead

  • First hit is an overhead, second hit is low.
  • Cancels into 214A/B/A+B, 214C/D/C+D, and 236C/D/C+D.

A key launcher in Chie's combo toolkit. In a blockstring, Skull Cracker can be used as a high option from Rampage, but the low option (Rampage OMC 2A) requires 50 meter to be truly ambiguous.


A Version

The A version mainly sees use as a followup to A Rampage on standing opponents as a launcher, which really opens up a lot of corner combo routing.


B Version

B version better for combos due to higher float, better recovery, and longer hitstun leading to better extensions. Doesn't combo after A version of Rampage on standing opponents (except on CH A Rampage starter or Fatal Counter), allowing for a reset.


SB Version

SB is mostly not used unless you have meter to burn to add damage to a combo. It's the only one that's frametight after A Rampage, but that aspect rarely comes into play.

  • Extreme damage.
  • C version wallbounces everywhere. D version launches far horizontally and only wallbounces in the corner
  • SB version launches straight up and Chie recovers in the air, allowing for another Dragon Kick.

Tomoe launches Chie in the air for a flying kick. High damage, usually used as a combo ender. Occasionally useful as a surprise, a method to punish unsafe moves in the air, or a desperate-and-not-ideal corner escape option (mainly j.236C+D). Can follow up with another Dragon Kick in the air after using SB version. In the corner can be canceled into OMB to squeeze out a bit more damage in a combo (SB version can be reliably OMBed anywhere)

  • Cancels into 214C/D/C+D, and 236C/D/C+D.
  • B and SB versions are throw invuln starting from frame 1 through a good chunk of the startup (although not through to active frames)

A forward lunging palm strike. B and SB versions travel backwards first.


A Version

Typically used as a combo ender midscreen for Chie's smaller and simpler combos. Leads to easy safejumps with 9j.B (whiff) > j.2B.


B Version

Combo extender after Skull Cracker in the corner. Launches high enough for 5C to link after in the corner and combos can be extended from there.


SB Version

Plus on block, making it a valid means to reset pressure. It's somewhat better for this than SB Rampage because the single, quick hit isn't as easy a point to guard cancel out of as Rampage, as well as properly leading to combos on airborne opponents. For example, 2A+B > 214A+B is a common string to reset pressure on block and combo on hit. Note that 2A+B > 214A+B only works with sweep starter, with dash momentum in a short string, or on Kanji. It's also projectile invul starting on frame 7 and going through active frames, which makes it an anti-zoning tool that must be considered by the opponent

Chie and her Persona do a double palm attack. Fatal starter. SB version has super armor on frames 9-32, shielding Chie from attacks. In combos, can be canceled into A Power Charge into 5C for common metered combo extensions. Nice move to throw into corner pressure sometimes if you think you can get a FC off of it, and is very good at covering lots of space (vertical space in particular) in neutral. Chie's best combo starter in certain situations or with lots of meter to spend.

  • Each level of Power Charge has a certain number of charges, as well as a damage boost.
  • Charges are consumed by special moves, supers, 5AA, 5AAA, AoA, Sweep, and all B normals (multihit moves only consume 1 charge).

Chie charges up, boosting the damage of the aforementioned moves and adding 25% chip damage to all affected moves. Each usage sets the charge count to the max of that level (so going to Level 3 with more than 5 charges will lose you charges). Using God's Hand or Agneyastra consumes all remaining charges.


A Version

Adds 1 level of Power Charge. Useful in combos or pressure as a sort of "extra" OMC, since it can be canceled into from virtually anything and has only 5 total frames. In addition, it freezes the screen, so you can use it when you are disoriented to get your bearings, or to tell if you have clearance to go for a throw/punish a move with long startup/etc. Very useful.

Power Charge Level 1
  • 1.2x damage boost
  • 9 Charges max
  • Specials and supers gain Fatal Starter property

B Version

Adds 2 levels of Power Charge. Similar to the A version, but the additional level adds even more damage, and is critical for most damage routes to have enough meter to use a Level 3 charged super. Has longer recovery time so it is usually used during combos; the invuln time isn't worth relying on.

Power Charge Level 2
  • 1.4x damage boost
  • 9 Charges max
  • All affected moves gain Fatal Starter property

SB Version

Adds 3 levels of Power Charge, which makes the multiplier jump up drastically. Due to the long recovery time, it's rarely used outside of specific combos/setups.

Power Charge Level 3
  • 2.0x damage boost
  • 5 Charges max

Version P1Also known as the starter proration. If this move starts a combo, this value will be added to the Proration Tally on top of P2's addition (P1 + P2). P2Also known as the mid-combo proration. If this move is used at all in a combo, this value will be added to the Proration Tally. SMPShorthand for "Same Move Proration". If this move is used more than once in a combo, this value will be added to the Proration Tally on top of P2's addition (P2 + SMP). Level

Tomoe summons a giant golden fist from the heavens that slams down onto the opponent. This is one of Chie's best combo enders when going for damage. Hits overhead for some reason.


C Version

Faster than the D version and puts the fist in front of Chie; Can also be used as a strong reversal.


D Version

Puts the fist mid screen and adds more damage.


SB Version

SB God's Hand causes 2 fists to come down, one after the other to add a bit more damage. With 125 meter or Shadow Frenzy active, can be OMCed for a high/low unblockable (236236C+D(1) > OMC > 5A > 2A+B)

  • Agneyastra instantly ends if Chie/Tomoe gets hit.
  • C Version puts meteors close to Chie.
  • D Version makes the meteors come down at a full screen distance away.
  • SB Version has the meteor raining down towards Chie.
  • Distance and orientation is actually based on Tomoe's position, but this rarely comes into play

Tomoe causes a large swarm of Meteors to rain from the sky. If you're using it as a projectile to cover your approach, usually you'll have to use Agneyastra twice due to its relatively short duration. Agneyastra is commonly used as a means to boost the damage on midscreen combos since it's air OK unlike God Hand. 236D > j.214214C deals very high damage, especially when combined with Power Charge.

Particularly useful for Shadow Chie, as most of her combos will build the 50 meter required to use this. If she hasn't used 2C in the combo, she can combo into it from Agneyastra use the Freeze to restand the opponent into 5DD. This functionally loops into itself because Shadows build so much meter.
