Normal Attacks

5A (Normal)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
5A 180 All 5 3 6 0 Body

5AAA 400, 200, 200 All 10 2(12)3(9)5 19 -5 Body

5A is a short, slightly angled jab that hits crouchers. It's a staple pressure tool, since it's 0 block; input it as [4]A during pressure to block DP attempts after you recover.


5AA is mostly used for hit confirming. Her new 5AA pulls the opponent back in towards her, making it a good a spot to sometimes reset pressure


Her new 5AAA is kick that wall bounces. Mostly just used for auto combos route. It's also useful for CH combos on grounded opponents midscreen because you'll be able to connect 5A from the wall bounce and keep the combo going, giving more damage and corner carry.

5A (Shadow)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
5A 180 All 5 3 6 0 Body

5B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
550 All 7 4 18 -7 Body

  • Dash Cancel is -5 on block
  • Backdash Cancel is -4 on block

Quick high heel kick. Great starter, leads to some of Chie's most damaging combos; also a reasonable poke at closer ranges, though it has less range than 2A.

2A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
200 L 7 2 12 -3 Foot

Crouching, low-hitting kick. It's arguably Chie's best poke, as it low profiles several other pokes 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. Cancels into itself on whiff.

2B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
400 AUB 10 2 30 -17 Body

  • Dash Cancel is -5 on block
  • Backdash Cancel is -4 on block

High vertical anti-air kick. Air unblockable. On hit forces stand against crouching opponents.

j.A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 HA 5 4 10 - Head

Quick aerial palm strike. Situational air to air. Hits overhead, but isn't as good for mixup as j.B. Cancels into itself, even on whiff.

j.B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
400 HA 8 3 13 - Head

Quick jump kick that hits overhead.

j.2B and j.BB

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
j.2B 600 HA 9 3 12 - Head
j.BB 600 HA 7 3 15 - Head

j.2B is a command normal version of j.BB. Mostly used in aerial combos before going into an air rampage, also hits overhead.

j.BB is mostly used in low to the ground air dash j.BB mixups from a 5DD/2DD setup in the corner.

All Out Attack

A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 H 26 1 39 -21 Body

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.

Sweep

2A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
600 L 9 3 20 -8 Foot

Good combo ender for setting up safe jumps. If you have 50 meter, you can also cancel it into A Power Charge, then connect 5C to get a better combo on a grounded opponent midscreen.


Persona Attacks

5C Persona Required

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
800 All 12 3 31 -16 Body

  • Dash Cancel is -3 on block

Decent mid-range poke for Chie. In Ultimax, it's been adjusted so that Tomoe appears a bit further back. This gives Tomoe less reach but it also makes her safer from attack as well. 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.

5D Persona Required

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
5D 200, 100x2, 900 All 43 2(3)2(6)2(11)3 61 total - Body
5DD 200, 100x2, 30x15, 200 All 43 2(3)2(6)2(7)30[15 hits](9)3 61 total - Body

Very slow spear attack. Last hit causes launch, but is not incredibly useful outside of combos. Almost exclusively canceled into 5DD oki after B Skullcracker in the corner }}


Tomoe spins spear. Standing version is slower but makes Tomoe move forward. Use while opponent is waking up in oki setup and they will be forced to block, leaving Chie free to mix-up the opponent or go for other set-ups. Tomoe can be hit if the opponent wakes up at the correct time or if they F-Action.

Note that the 2nd D can (and usually should) be delayed to force the opponent to change their wakeup timing and allow Chie more time to pressure.

2C Persona Required

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
400,200 All 23 7(2)2 26 -11 Body

  • Dash Cancel is -3 on block
  • Freezes the opponent on 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.

2D Persona Required

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
2D 200, 900 All 26 7(11)3 56 total +27 Body
2DD 200, 50x15, 300 All 26 2(7)30[15 hits](9)3 56 total +62 Body

2D is a very slow spear attack. Last hit causes launch, but is not incredibly useful outside of combos. Almost exclusively canceled into 2DD oki after B Skullcracker


Tomoe spins spear. Starts-up immediately but Tomoe will stay in place. Use while opponent is waking up (after B skullcracker in corner) and they will be forced to block, leaving Chie free to mix-up the opponent or go for other set-ups. Tomoe can be hit if the opponent wakes up at the correct time or if they F-Action.

Note that the 2nd D can (and usually should) be delayed to force the opponent to change their wakeup timing and allow Chie more time to pressure

j.C Persona Required

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
700 All 11 4 11 - Body

Tomoe slashes in midair. A move with a surprising amount of utility, and Chie's best air-to-air option. It actually has a deceptively massive forward hitbox (by Chie standards) and a scrunched hurtbox, and can be canceled into D Dragon Kick for easy damage. Against a grounded opponent, it allows for ambiguous crossups in combination with air turn, and halts Chie's downward momentum which can sometimes cause AA's to whiff. Note that it does not hit overhead.

j.5/4/2/8D Persona Required

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
100, 50x11, 500 All 24 24[12 hits](13)3 52 total - Head

Tomoe leaps up and spins her spear, followed by a downward thrust which causes knockdown. Each version summons Tomoe at a slightly different point. Primarily used in combos, but j.2D and j.5D can be useful for covering your approach.


Universal Mechanics

Ground Throw

C+D

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
0,0,1200 Throw 5 3 25 - Throw

Can be comboed after with a One-More cancel. On counter hit can be comboed after with 2A.

Air Throw

j.C+D

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
0,1600 Throw 4 3 12 - Throw

An air throw that ends with Chie slamming them directly down into the ground, giving good positioning to start pressure. You can OMC and convert it into a combo if you have meter.

Counter

B+D (air OK)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
Ground Catch - - - 1-9 Catch 24 Total - -
Ground Attack 720, 190x4 Low, All 7 2(9)3(5)3(5)3(5)3 18+15 after landing -24 Body
Air 320, 160x3 All 6 3(5)3(5)3(5)3 15 after landing - Head

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 f-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.

Air version does the kicks immediately, and has full invincibility on startup.

Guard Cancel Attack

6A+B while blocking

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute

Chie's Guard Cancel Attack. It utilizes Chie's 5B animation, and knocks the opponent away on hit. It has limited practicality due to its awful range.


Skill Attacks

Rampage

236A/B (air OK)

SB air 320,160*N All 7 2(4)2(4)2... 11 after landing - Head

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

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.

Skull Cracker

236A/B after Rampage

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
A 400, 200 H,L 6 2(9)3 26 -12 Body, Foot
B 800, 400 H,L 10 2(9)3 21 -7 Body, Foot
SB 800, 400 H,L 5 2(9)3 25 -11 Body, Foot

  • First hit is an overhead, second hit is low.

A version can be followed up with Dragon Kick or Black Spot. Can be replaced with 2A after Rampage for a good 50/50 situation. Good use of OMC during/after Skull Cracker can create powerful mixups, and or make the move safe.

B version is good for combos or to set up 5DD/2DD oki in the corner. Doesn't combo after A version of Rampage, allowing for a reset.


SB is mostly not used unless you have meter to burn to add damage to a combo.

Dragon Kick Persona Required

236C/D (air OK)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
C 200 All 18 21 23+9 after landing -34 Head
D 3000 All 30 18 23+9 after landing -31 Head
SB 2400 All 30 17 4+9 after landing -2 Head

Tomoe launches Chie in the air for a flying kick. High damage, usually used as a combo ender. Occasionally useful as a surprise, or a method to punish unsafe moves in the air. Can follow up with another Dragon Kick in the air after using SB version.

Herculean Strike

214A/B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
A 600 All 15 6 23 -14 ~ -9 Chest
B 1000 All 31 10 21 -11 ~ -3 Chest
SB 900, 450 All 17 10,1 15 +3 Chest

A forward lunging palm strike.

A Version is typically used as a combo ender midscreen for Chie's smaller and simpler combos


B version covers more ground than the A version but doesn't currently see much use.


SB version is + 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.

Black Spot Persona Required

214C/D

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
C 800 All 13 12 24 -7 Projectile, Chest
D 1200 All 26 12 18 +2 Projectile, Chest
SB 1400 All 21 12 26 -6 Projectile, Chest

  • C version Dash Cancel is -6 on block
  • D and SB version Dash Cancel is -3 on block

Chie and her Persona do a double palm attack. C/D versions will FC on Counter Hit. SB version has super armor on frames 9-32, shielding Chie from attacks. Nice move to throw into corner pressure sometimes if you think you can get a FC off of it, and the D/SB versions are good when the enemy is approaching.


SP Skill Attacks

Power Charge

236236A/B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
A - - - - 5 Total - -
B - - - - 20 Total - -
SB - - - - 35 Total - -

Chie charges up, boosting the damage of her special moves. In addition, special moves will now FC on Counter Hit.

A version is 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 (all of which have invincibility). 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.


B version puts Chie into level 2. Similar to the A version, but the charge adds an extra boost to damage. Has longer recovery time so it is usually used during combos or after a counter hit.


SB version puts Chie into level 3, adds an even bigger damage boost. Due to the long recovery time it's rarely used outside of specific combos/setups.

God's Hand Persona Required

236236C/D

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
C 3000 H 4+11 6 42 -16 Body
D 3360 H 4+19 6 42 -16 Body
SB 3000, 3000 H 4+19 6(276) 42 -16 Body

Tomoe summons a giant golden fist from the heavens that slams down onto the opponent. This is Chie's best combo ender when going for damage.

C version is quicker 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 God's Hand causes 2 fists to come down, one after the other to add even more damage.

Awakened SP Skill Attacks

Agneyastra Persona Required

214214C/D (air OK)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
C 520*N All 11+~8 - 35 Total - Projectile, Body
D 520*N All 11+~14 - 34 Total - Projectile, Body
SB 520*N All 11+~6 - 34 Total - Projectile, Body

Tomoe causes a large swarm of Meteors to rain from the sky.In Ultimax, the amount of meteors that rain down has been lessened. This makes it harder for Agneyastra to lockdown an opponent to cover an approach from full screen. If you're using it for this purpose, usually you'll have to use Agneyastra twice now to get the same effect. Agneyastra is now more commonly used as a means to boost the damage on midscreen combos since it's air OK unlike God Hand.

Agneyastra instantly ends if Chie/Tomoe gets hit.

  • C verion 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


Instant Kill

Galactic Punt Persona Required

222C+D

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
222CD K.O. All 13+51 22 66 -52 Projectile, Body

Tomoe summons a large stream of energy to knock her opponent airborne. On the way down, Chie then raises her power level over 9000 to deliver a powerful kick that launches her opponent into outer space! She then quotes Bruce Lee and the battle is over.
