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 tricky mix-ups and they allow him to quickly dart across the stage. He even possesses the unique ability to run up walls.

Chipp has fast attack speed and many pressure tools. f.S is fast, has good range and safe special cancels, making it a great poke. 5K is remarkable as it can gatling into itself for strong stagger pressure, and 6K is a safe overhead. j.2K is an oppressive divekick that has great synergy with Chipp’s triple jump. Resshou is a rekka that can lead to highly delayable follow-ups, enabling a reset/throw mix-up. 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-upAttacking 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. Cycle his moves well for 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 neat defensive options in 6P, his fast 5P and his DPDragon Punch A move that has invulnerability during its startup, long recovery, and a rising motion. - Beta Blade, but durability is still no strength of his. Don’t be intimidated, Chipp has the mobility needed to dominate his opponent in neutral if you have the match-up knowledge required to avoid unnecessary risks. Stay sharp!

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


Lore:President of the Eastern Chipp Kingdom.

He's hot-blooded, and thinking deeply is far from his specialty. He's quick to lose his temper, and his words often come off as rude. Now that he's trying to get into politics, he's learned basic manners and social skills.

He acknowledges that he has some rough edges, but accepts those parts of himself.

GGST Chipp Zanuff Icon.png Chipp Zanuff (チップ=ザナフ), classified as a High Speed type, is an incredibly fast ninja who launches attacks in the blink of an eye.
Pros Cons
  • Quick Normals: Has among the best frame data in the roster, which allows him to easily pressure characters with slower moves and little defensive options.
  • Mobility: Wields the fastest dash as well as having triple jump, wallrun, and Alpha Blade granting him incredible mobility while also making him a pest to catch.
  • Pressure: Chipp has plenty of ways to hit an opponent such as with command grab, cross-up, grounded overhead, and the infamous plus-on-block divekick. Cycling through all these can make Chipp's offense often feel unstoppable.
  • Defense: 3 frame 5P, DP, and low sweep can help avoid Chipp's major weakness.
  • Wallrun Abilities: Unique wallrun enables combos which keep the wall from breaking and wallrun cancels enable extremely tricky mix-ups at the corner.
  • HP: Lowest health in the game by far and having the highest R.I.S.C. multiplier means blocking basic blockstrings can put Chipp at half R.I.S.C. quite easily.
  • Inconsistent Damage: Takes more hits to kill an opponent due to lower average damage, and has some difficulty getting consistent combos on certain scenarios.

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

Universal overhead attack that's pretty fast. Chipp summons Dodomezaki the sea otter in front of him for his dust attack. The otter is NOT disjointed from Chippas he also get hurt if the otter is hit. Can be gatling from 5K, 2K, or c.S for a mixup.


Charged Dust
  • 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.

Similar to uncharged but is slow enough to be reacted to, but if it does land it gives a very high damaging combo.

ALFA BLAY!

  • There no minimum height on the move, allowing it to be tiger knee'd (2369P).
  • If Chipp alpha blades into a wall he can hold forward or P and he will begin his wall run.
  • Cannot be Red Roman Cancelled.

Only has a hitbox behind Chipp, so if this is used too far away then it will whiff in front of the opponent, and is very punishable. If close enough to the opponent, Chipp will pass through them for a cross up. On close hit, it is sometimes possible to combo into 5P before the opponent hits the ground for some extra damage (mainly useful in the corner).

The move recovers faster when done at low heights than on the ground. If a low height Air Alpha Blade hits against a cornered opponent it is possible to convert into a combo.

  • Ground version goes upwards.
  • Air version goes downwards.
  • Just like horizontal Alpha Blade, the move cannot be Red Roman Cancelled.

Alpha Blade but it goes diagonally. Ground version can lead into air combos while the air version can create a ground bounce that can be combo'd off of. If Chipp alpha blades at a wall he can hold 6 and begin his wall run. When you alpha blade into the air, Chipp will be able to move afterwards and have all of his air options available to him. This makes it very useful for combos, movement, and setups.

If used near the corner, Chipp will automatically do another hit coming off the wall resulting in two total hits. You can omit the second hit for the aerial version if you are holding forward towards the wall (holding K does not work). This does not work for the grounded version.

  • Invincible on startup
  • Can't be Roman Canceled when whiffed

Upward uppercut-like slash that hits twice. The first hit is very close range and will have trouble connecting with opponents who are further out. The second hit also has no invincibility which makes it likely to trade against jump-ins. Use as a reversal or combo ender.

Do not get this blocked. You may die.

  • Rokusai (236S) cannot be used after this move.

Flip kick that hits overhead. There is a big gap where the opponent can easily punish with an anti-air (most likely 6P) or use a DP before the kick hits. Thus, this move should only be used if the opponent is conditioned enough to respect your pressure or fail to block overhead. Incredibly unsafe on block so have RC ready to continue pressure.

If you do hit this you can get any damage conversion into 2S and your combo of choice especially if it is off CounterHit.

  • Freezes Chipp midair during the throw.
  • Can be TK'd from ground (2147p) allowing air options on recovery
  • Up to 3 Shuriken can be used if TK'd during intial jumps

Regular air fireball. Has a pretty useful angle for zoning characters who have less mobility. Unfortunately your opponent can hit the shuriken with any active hitbox and nullify it. Fairly useful when PRC'd to provide yourself some cover while you're descending.

  • Invincible on start-up, but the animation of flying around the screen isn't.
  • Not invincible on frame 1
  • Hard knockdown, but does not wall break.
  • Since it can be used mid-air it's able to be implemented in some specific Wall Run combos.

Chipp dashes upwards diagonally and goes back and forth across the screen. If he hits the opponent they'll be juggled around the air before an animation will trigger in which Chipp knocks them into the sky to then slam them downwards. It'll bring the opponent midscreen with Chipp landing right next to them. Since Chipp gains control before the opponent he can immediately pressure their wakeup with okizeme. Can be used as a reversal to quickly react to an enemy's attack.

  • Launches and hard knockdown on completion, wallbreaks near the corner.
  • Projectile invincibility on startup.
  • Not full screen, but covers a good portion of the screen.
  • Can be Red Roman Cancelled either during the beginning of the animation or after the super is finished.

Chipp enters a quick animation before running across the screen. This move is not full screen and will whiff in front of the opponent if activated too far, leaving you open for a punish. It's fairly reactable as well and can be easily jumped over. If the move connects with the opponent Chipp will perform a flurry of blows with his clones before knocking the opponent back. Since it wall breaks near the corner and provides a hard knockdown it makes a very useful as an okizeme ender if 632146H isn't enough to kill. Its startup projectile invincibility makes it useful as a way to punish fireballs or moves like Gun Flame.
