Chie Satonaka

Overview

Chie Satonaka is the resident "kung fu" expert in Persona 4: Arena. Chie is an energetic tomboy with a short temper, loves kung fu movies, and best friends with Yukiko. Chie's inner struggle is the resentment of constantly being compared to Yukiko who is considered feminine, while Chie is viewed as a tomboy; she overcomes this struggle with the help of the team. In Persona 4: Arena, Chie fights with martial arts and her Persona is Tomoe.

Health

Strengths
Rushdown, high damage, very useful Supers for resetting pressure or extending combos
Weaknesses
Short range, poor defense
Movement Options
1 Double Jump/Airdash, Run-type Dash
Play-style
Chie is a rushdown heavy character that overwhelms her opponent's defenses by never giving the opponent a chance to retaliate. She also has very high damage potential starting from just about any starter.
Power Charge
color changes when stacked
Chie's attacks will do more damage for a limited amount of time. You can perform multiple Charges to further increase the damage boost you receive (max 3). This is also used to reset pressure since you can cancel your blocked attacks into Charge to immediately return to attacking.


Agneyastra
This Super can be used as a momentum changer. Use this to stop the opponent's advance or to start your own offensive. Chie can begin attacking while the meteors rain down on the opponent.

5A

Short, slightly angled jab that hits crouchers. It's a staple pressure tool, since it's the only jab in the game that's plus on block; input it as [4]A during pressure to block DP attempts after you recover.

5AA

Short flurry of multiple kicks. Mostly used for hitconfirming.

5AAA

Backwards cartwheel kick. Doesn't see much use outside autocomboing for meter. Pull opponent out of a corner.

5B

550 All CJDO 7 3 21 -7 Body - Click!

Quick high heel kick. Great starter; also a reasonable poke at closer ranges, though it has less range than 2A.

2A

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
200 L CO 7 3 11 -3 Leg - Click!

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 okizeme mixups. Cancels into itself on whiff. Note that it is /not/ jump cancelable, unlike Chie's other A and B normals.

2B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
400 AUB CJDO 10 2,3 29 -17 Body 5-9 Head Click!

High vertical anti-air kick. Air unblockable. Can cancel startup into a throw for extra range.

Head invincibility on frames 5-9.

j.A

j.B

Chie does a front flip before slamming her heel down on her opponent. Best AoA in the game, since it's got good startup and reasonable range, and it's airborne from the sixth frame. Also, it sees some use as a combo ender, since it gives hard knockdown on airborne opponents.

Sweep

2A+B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
600 L CJO 9 6 15 -8 Leg - Click!

Chie's sweep. It's a staple combo ender in the corner, and it's also surprisingly useful in pressure, since it's jump cancelable on block. Hits low, but it's nearly impossible to combo off it, since it knocks down on hit; be prepared to go into in okizeme if it hits when you're using it in your blockstring.

Guard Cancel Attack

6A+B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
0 All O ? ? ? ? ? ? Click!

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.

Persona Attacks

5C Persona Required

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
800 All CJDO 12 3 31 -16 Body - Click!

Decent mid-range poke for Chie. Useful in corner pressure since it can be dash/jump canceled to make it +0. Can be used to trade favorably with certain long-range pokes, but it shouldn't be relied on too heavily.

5D/2D Persona Required

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
5D 200, 100x2, 900 All - 43 7,2,3 40 +47 Body - Click!
2D 200, 1400 All - 26 7,2,3 40 +27 Body - Click!

Very slow spear attack. Last hit causes launch, but is not incredibly useful outside of combos. Almost exclusively canceled into 5DD/2DD for oki.

5DD/2DD Persona Required

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
5DD 200, 100x2, 30x15, 200 All - 43 3 - +88 Body - Click!
2DD 200, 50x15, 300 All - 26 3 - +62 Body - Click!

Tomoe spins spear. Amazing oki tool. Standing version is slower but makes Tomoe move forward, crouching starts-up immediately but Tomoe will stay in place. Use while opponent is waking up 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 Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
700 All CJO 11 2 32 - Body - Click!

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 Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
100, 50x11, 500 All - 24 3 43 - Body - Click!

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 or okizeme in certain matchups.

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.

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

A Version

A short flurry of jump kicks. Mostly used in combos, or to cause FC under Power Charge.

B Version

A higher flurry of jump kicks that force standing. Safe on block.

SB Version

Startup of A Rampage with the damage of B Rampage, plus extra kicks. Can link 5A after. Very plus on block.

A Version

First hit overhead, second hit low. Can be followed up with Dragon Kick. 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 make the move safe.

B Version

First hit overhead, second hit low. Good for combos. Doesn't combo after A version of Rampage, allowing for a reset.

SB Version

First hit overhead, second hit low. Mostly not used unless you have meter to burn to add damage to a combo.

Chie shoots off with a flying kick. High damage and a great combo ender. Occasionally useful as a surprise, or a method to punish unsafe moves in the air. SB version should be used whenever possible.

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

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
A - - - - - 6 Total Duration - - 1-5 Click!
B - - - - - 25 Total - - 1-9 Click!
A Version

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

Similar to the A version, but the charge lasts much longer. This version is not very practical since the actual effects of Power Charge aren't usually worth 50 SP, and it has a very long recovery time. However, the 9 frames of invincibility might make it occasionally useful as a parry, from which you can go into a massively damaging FC combo.

God's Hand Persona Required

D 3360 All One More Cancel 4+19 6 42 -16 Head 1-31 Click!

Tomoe summons a giant golden fist to slam down onto the opponent. Chie's main combo ender when going for damage. C version is quicker and puts the fist in front of Chie, D version puts the fist mid screen. Can also be used as a strong reversal.

Tomoe causes a large swarm of Meteors to rain from the sky. C verion puts meteors close to Chie, D version makes meteors go full screen. This super is very useful in starting a rushdown from fullscreen or for stopping your opponent's offense or zoning. Chie's only option from full screen away.
