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 a divekick that has great synergy with Chipp’s triple jump. Resshou is a RekkaA series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. that can lead to highly delayable follow-ups, enabling a strike/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, his fast 2K, 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.
Playstyle
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, 5 frame 2K, and DP 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.
  • Poor Durability: 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.

  • Jump and dash cancellable.
  • Unique Gatling into itself.
  • Excellent close-range button.

Very fast 5K with good range, while also being jump and dash cancellable. It is slower than his 5P, but can't be crouched under making it easier to use. It also has better range than his 2K, making it more ideal to use as a punish in certain situations. Good for general pressure as it chains into itself and can be confirmed into 2D very easily.

Has overhead options by gatling into 6K or 5D, and low options by gatling into 2K or 2D.

Dash cancels also make this move even stronger due to having the additional threat by dash canceling into specials or dashing in for a throw.

  • Jump and dash cancellable.
  • Plenty of gatlings to threaten with.

Most versatile combo starter option, and also easy button to use to start jump cancel pressure. This chains into any command normal or other S/H button making it a very high reward button. It is +1 on block, which can allow Chipp to apply more pressure to his opponents.

He has overhead options by gatling into 6K or 5D, and low options by gatling into 2D.

  • One of Chipp's prime poking normals in neutral.
  • f.S > 236S is a fairly standard poking tool.

Chipp's best poke with excellent range and combos easily into resshou. This will cover a lot of ground space and also catches jump out attempts. Chipp extends his hurtbox a lot, so be careful about getting beat out by 6Ps or crouched under by low profile moves. Combos into 2H at closer ranges, and Resshou~Senshuu on counterhit for a soft knockdown.

  • Surprisingly safe
  • Good counter poking tool

Less range and slightly slower than f.S, but has a better, disjointed hitbox for counter poking. Unfortunately, it has large knockback, which can make it difficult to convert damage off of or use in extended combos. 5H > 236S is a good poke to use against opponents with greater range than Chipp. In the corner, 5H can be used in high damage wallbounce combos and setups.

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 Chipp as he also get hurt if the otter is hit. Can be gatling from 5K, 2K, or c.S for a mixup. Can be RC'd for further combo extensions.


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. 5[D] can be used in relatively burst-safe combos.

  • Chipp's fastest low.
  • Does not gatling into itself.
  • Dash 2K is a decent neutral tool.

Chipp's primary low option for opening up the opponent. Chipp will almost always gatling this into 2D on hit for okizeme or an extended RC combo.

At 5f startup, 2K has the same startup as 2P. However, it has superior range and leads to hard knockdown on hit, making it Chipp's primary tool for both mashing out of strings and punishing opponents. On counterhit, it can link into c.S, leading to a full combo.

As the recovery is very low, it can be used to set up tick throws or linked into other normals for a pressure reset on block.

  • It's a mid.
  • Whiff cancels into 2H, making it scary for opponents to whiff punish.
  • Decent poke that cannot be low profiled.

A crouching poke that does not hit low. Has a unique property where it can whiff cancel into 2H. Although it has a much shorter range, 2S will hit opponents using low profile moves that would otherwise cause f.S to whiff.

This normal also causes a vertical launch on an airborne opponent, making it very usable for some loop combos. For situations where 5K/2K would not reach as a punish option, 2S may be used instead. Leads to a highly rewarding combo on hit.

  • Good combo tool.
  • Generally used as a whiff cancel followup from 2S in neutral.
  • High risk, high reward anti-air.

As a starter, Chipp can combo into an air 236K combo. More often used as a combo extension tool from a c.S or 2S starter, which leads to his BnB combos. In the corner, counter hits can be confirmed right into wall run combos or gamma blade loops. Since 2H is slow and not disjoint, it can be quite risky to use as an anti-air option - use it very carefully.

  • Another great poking tool


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

Generally good to use against low profile moves that would cause f.S to whiff. However, it is still possible that 2D will trade or lose out to those moves occasionally due to the tall hurtbox near Chipp's body. It is a very useful as a whiff punish option as well. On counterhit, it combos into 2S for high-damaging combos at certain ranges.

All around excellent button for starting okizeme, since it provides hard knockdown on grounded opponents.

  • Above knee invulnerable anti-air.
  • Decent counterpoke.

Chipp's safer, but low reward anti-air option. Due to its long recovery, whiffing this move is very easily punishable. Chipp can also gatling into this button from 5P/2P for some extra damage. In neutral, as it has some upper-body invulnerability, this move can be used to counterpoke long range attacks such as Ramlethal/Testament/Baiken's f.SGGST Ramlethal Valentine fS.pngGuard:

  • Chipp's main overhead.
  • Throw invulnerable for most of its duration.
  • Relatively safe on block, +1 on hit.
  • Although a very niche use, it can low crush certain moves.

Chipp's grounded overhead option that is extremely fast, and cancellable from most of his normals. Chipp is airborne (and thus unthrowable) for the entire attack except the landing recovery. This will typically be used to harass an opponent mid blockstring. If 6K hits meaty enough, it can combo into 2K > 2D and set up the same okizeme loop again. Can also be RC'd for further, damaging combo extensions and setups near the corner.

  • Max damage CH starter.
  • Excellent combo filler due to its high damage and ground bounce.

Useful normal for causing a ground bounce in combos. Also a fantastic punish option for DPs for big counter hit combos. 6H can also be used as a counter-poke for some extended normals to fish for counter hit starters. This button has a decent vertical hitbox, which can be used to catch jump out attempts. On normal air-hit, 6H can combo into 2S for high-damaging combos at certain ranges.

  • Front hitbox hits on frame 11 and back hitbox on frame 9.
  • Jump and air-dash cancellable.

Chipp slashes below him while hitting twice. Chipp's primary jump-in that can also cross up. If it hits decently deep, j.H will combo into 2K > 2D after landing for hard knockdown. May also combo into c.S/2S if j.H hits deep enough. On both air and grounded counterhits, Chipp can combo into c.S/2S as well.

  • Jump and air-dash cancellable.

Although not bad, this button has certainly seen better days. Good jump-in button, but the hitbox is not even remotely disjointed as in previous GG titles. This is also a common air combo ender as it will knockdown any airborne opponent. Often used as a gatling option from j.S for a double overhead. Similar to j.H, it combos into 2K > 2D if it hits low enough, and into c.S/2S if it hits very deep. Also combos into c.S/2S for a high-damage combo on counterhits.

  • Each hit is special cancellable like any other normal.

A strong air approach option and an incredible tool for air stalling and punishing whiffed anti-air attempts. Each hit of the dive is an overhead and is also plus on block if the last hit connects. On block Chipp can be thrown if he tries to pressure with buttons like 2K. If this move crosses up the spacing can make Chipp safe to throw attempts. Combos directly into 2K on hit.

Easy to counter-hit and has a long whiff recovery so do not use this move carelessly

Alpha Blade Horizontal
  • Cross up move
  • Chipp can begin a wall run by holding forward (6) or P
  • Cannot be Red Roman Cancelled

Chipp vanishes before appearing on the ground a fixed distance away. This move can be used for a quick cross up or for combos, particularly with meter. When spaced or used in the corner, it is sometimes possible to combo into 5P. On hit Alpha Blade Horizontal will cause a soft knock down giving Chipp some advantage depending on spacing. Since this move repositions Chipp quickly it can be used to safely bait some reversals.

In the corner Chipp can cancel Alpha Blade Horizontal into a wall run for combo extensions and mix-ups by holding forward (6) or P during the animation.

Alpha Blade Diagonal
  • Cross up move
  • Travels upward with air options available.
  • Chipp can begin a wall run by holding forward (6) or K
  • Cannot be Red Roman Cancelled.

Chipp vanishes before appearing in the air a fixed distance away. This move can be used for a quick cross up or for extensions into air combos (often from 2H). Chipp is left in the air with his air options available to him making it very useful for combos, movement, and setups. Since this move repositions Chipp quickly it can be used to safely bait reversals in most situations.

If used near the corner, Chipp will automatically perform a second hit coming off the wall and cross back through his opponent allowing for a follow up. Chipp can also cancel the move into a wall run by holding forward (6) or K during the animation leaving him high up on the wall.


Air Alpha Blade Diagonal
  • Cross up move
  • Travels downwards causing a ground bounce
  • Cannot be used for wall runs
  • Can steal the corner by holding forward (6) during the animation
  • Cannot be Red Roman Cancelled.

Chipp vanishes before appearing again on the ground. This move can be used for cross ups after a jump-in or catch an opponent off guard from the air. This move cannot hit same-side and has a long recovery so it must be positioned carefully to avoid whiffing. On successful hit Chipp will recover in time to extend the combo with a move like c.S.

If used near the corner, Chipp will automatically perform a second hit coming off the wall and cross back through his opponent allowing for a follow up. Chipp cannot cancel this move into a wall run like the grounded version but he can hold forward (6) to only perform a single hit and steal the corner (holding K will not work).

  • 60% Initial proration
  • Invincible to strikes on startup, but can be thrown
  • Can't be Roman Canceled when whiffed

The initial proration affects the second hit of Beta Blade. This means that when Beta Blade is used to start a combo each hit does 30 and 15 respectively (45 total).

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 only has upper-body invincibility, which makes it likely to trade against jump-ins. Use as a reversal or combo ender. Since it is very active, it can be used against opponents in the air, and still be somewhat safe on block upon landing. Even so, it is best to be careful when using Beta Blade.

Many characters have methods to extend pressure while baiting DP, including Chipp himself, so use sparingly on wakeup. Beta blade shines in being able to disrupt common blockstrings, such as Baiken's f.S/2S>2H, forcing the opponent to pause or adjust their strings against it.

If this whiffs, Chipp may die. If it is blocked on the ground, Chipp may die, but having meter for Roman Cancel will make it safe.

  • 80% forced proration on-hit
  • Launches opponent on hit
  • Deals very high wall damage


Sends a clone forward that will attack the opponent leaving Chipp plus. Damage dealt to the clone is also dealt to Chipp making this a strong but risky pressure reset tool. It is best used unpredictably, or when your opponent is conditioned and unwilling to counter-attack. Chipp and the projectile can be struck at the same time leading to DOUBLE damage on Chipp so extra caution is required when an opponent has meter.

Poor combo starter/filler due to forced proration, high wall damage, and the awkward launch animation. Cannot be converted midscreen without meter but can give a small meterless combo in the corner.

When combined with a Roman Cancel the clone become an independent projectile and Chipp can move freely. Gamma Blade can also be used as a reversal-safe okizeme option.

A safe poke option to condition and pressure your opponent or as a long-range punish versus moves with long recovery. This may be delayed to get different timings and throw off the opponent. Combos into 2S and Senshuu on counterhit.

  • Negative on-hit (-3) so be wary when continuing pressure.
  • Normally safe due to push-back but can be punished by many characters

A fast advancing kick that hits low. Useful for frame trapping an opponent when they try to mash or when they're trying to jump out. Combos into 2S or Senshuu (~236K) on counterhit. Best used with meter to convert normal hits and to help stay safe on block.

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

Flip kick that hits overhead. There is a small gap (5~6 frames) where the opponent can punish with 5 frame 5Ps, 6P, or use a reversal before the kick hits. Due to the the multiple options Chipp has, this can be a good option to make the opponent respect the followups and allow for Resshou > Rokusai (236K > 236K) to be unlikely to be challenged. However this move is fairly unsafe on block and leaves Chipp in an easy-to-punish range. Due to all of these reasons, this move should mainly be used to condition the opponent and best used when there is enough meter to Red Roman Cancel.

  • Only provides combo on Counter Hit or if Roman Cancel is used. Chipp can close in to meaty c.S on opponent's recovery.
  • If Senshuu lands close enough/in the corner, mashing 6K leads to an auto-timed meaty overhead that combos into 2K > 2D

  • Sometimes referred to as "Leaf Throw".
  • Like other Throws, it can be Purple RC'd at any point before the last strike.

A command grab that flings Chipp forward in a short trajectory. If it hits, Chipp and a clone will latch onto the opponent's head and trigger a short animation. It can be Red RC'd after the last strike which can lead into some Wall Break combos. Chipp is not invincible during the beginning jump, meaning he can easily get hit out of it (even on opponent's wakeup, due to throw invulnerability). Due to the long startup, it is best to use this move sparingly. The recovery is very short for a command grab, making it extremely difficult to punish if the opponent opts to jump instead of directly hitting him out of it. It is often used as a mixup option from fast RCs, or in the middle of blockstrings, where it is less expected. As an okizeme option, Genrou Zan is reversal safe since it is a throw. However, it will lose to reversal supers.

  • Freezes Chipp midair during the throw.
  • Counterhit recovery state.
  • Can be TK'd from ground and in the air (2147p), allowing air options on recovery.
  • Up to 3 Shuriken can be used if TK'd during intial jumps.
  • If it isn't TK'd, Chipp will be in recovery state until landing.

Regular air fireball. Has a decent angle for zoning characters who have less mobility. The opponent can hit the shuriken with any active hitbox and nullify it. Currently, Shuriken only has niche uses: as a meaty option after a j.D air ender, or used to hit Leo out of his Brynhildr stance. This move is best used sparingly, as Chipp can be easily counter hit out of the animation.

  • Can also be performed by holding forward (6) or the attack button during different version of Alpha Blade (236[P] / j.236[P] / 236[K])
  • During wall run, Chipp is able to perform special versions of his ground normals
  • Chipp will automatically Wall Run cancel his Wall Run moves on hit
  • Press {4} or {2} to perform Escape and leap off the wall.
  • The jump arc for {4} sends Chipp away from the wall and {2} sends Chipp down along the wall

Chipp's primary combo extender after counterhit 2H or after an updrift Red RC (88RRC) at the corner. Wallrun combos lead to some of the highest damaging combos Chipp has. Aside from fancy wall run combos, the wall run can enable tricky okizeme/mixups off either version of Alpha Blade when cancelled immediately.

  • Shares an animation with 6H
  • Max damage combo filler and wall break option
  • Causes a wall bounce at high wall health


A large slash that hits far behind Chipp's head allowing him to pull the opponent back toward the wall and extend a combo with a bounce or to cause a wall splat. Deals very high damage making it useful for Chipp's optimal wall run combos. Chipp can use the wall bounce to perform a high damage combo extension or to end his wall run and use j.236K to carry the opponent back to the ground.

  • Invincible on frame 6 (ground) / frame 4 (air), but the animation of Chipp flying around the screen isn't.
  • Possible to cross up opponent if done on their wakeup
  • 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.
  • Can be Purple RC'd at any point, but mostly done after for combo extensions.

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, hard knocked down 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.

15×5, 9×3, 30 All 6+1 - - -20 -

  • Launches and hard knockdown on completion, wallbreaks near the corner.
  • Has short period of projectile invincibility after the super flash.
  • 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. Has brief projectile invulnerability after the superflash, enabling Chipp to punish fireball moves in certain situations.
