This Persona 4 Golden Chie Build Guide will teach you which skills are worth keeping on Chie and which you should forget in Persona 4 Golden.

If you’re playing Persona 4 Golden, now available on Steam, you’re going to want to know which of Chie’s skills are worthwhile and which ones you can feel comfortable forgetting. You’re only allowed to keep 8 skills on any given character, so you’ll want to know which Persona 4 Golden Chie skills are really worthwhile.

This Persona 4 Golden Chie Build guide will teach you just that. It will also list all the possible skills the Chie is capable of learning so you have everything you need in order to customize it to your own liking.

The Build – Persona 4 Golden Chie Skills

By the end of the game, the build you’re going to most likely want on Chie, out of all her normal leveling skills, her available social link skills and her optional bike skills, is this:

God’s HandDragon Hustle
AgneyastraAuto-Tarukaja
Power ChargeApt Pupil
BufudyneEvade Fire

It might be worthwhile to swap Apt Pupil or Auto-Tarukaja for High Counter, but personally I don’t find that to be an improvement. Auto-Tarukaja and Apt Pupil are both nice because they increase Chie’s effectiveness on the first turn against trash mobs, increasing the likelihood you’ll end fights on the first turn.

Chie also learns Ice Boost which you could potentially give to her in place of Apt Pupil. Chie can hit weaknesses with her Bufudyne spell, but she’s not going to be a powerful mage no matter what you do with her. If you want strong Ice Magic, use Teddie.

Leveling Skills – Persona 4 Golden Chie Skills

Here are the skills that Chie learns as she levels up:

NameLevel LearnedDescription

TarukajaDefaultIncreases attack power for one ally
Bufu6Minor ice damage to one enemy

Social Link Skills – Persona 4 Golden Chie Skills

These are the skills that Chie can learn as she increases her social link (Chariot).

NameSocial Link RankDescription
Rebellion2Increases critical rate for one ally
Ice Boost4+25% Ice Damage
Revolution6Increases critical rate for all allies and enemies
Bufula8Medium ice damage to one enemy
Evade Fire10Triple evasion chance against fire attacks

Bike Skills – Persona 4 Golden Chie Skills

These are the Bike Skills available to Chie in Persona 4 Golden. For more information on Bike Skills, check the Persona 4 Golden Bike Skills Guide.

NameBike RidesDescription
Hama1Low chance of instant death for one enemy (Light)
Mind Slice2Medium physical damage to all enemies with a chance of inflicting Panic
Hamaon3Medium chance of instant death for one enemy (Light)
Tetra Break4Dispels Tetrakarn from all enemies
Bufudyne5Heavy ice damage to one enemy

For Chie, most of these skills are mostly not useful. Chie already has some competition in her skillset (High Counter, Apt Pupil and Auto-Tarukaja fighting for a spot), and while Hamaon is a decent skill, it doesn’t deserve a spot more than any of those other skills. Bufudyne, however, is a common sense upgrade for Chie’s Bufula spell and it’s the only Ice spell she really needs.

If you have the free time available in your schedule, it’s probably worth taking Chie on 5 bike rides to get Bufudyne on her.

Unique Skill – Persona 4 Golden Chie Skills

Each character’s unique skill is earned when they receive their 3rd Tier Persona. This happens in January when you spend an afternoon hanging out with a party member that has already achieved its 2nd Tier Persona by reaching their level 10 Social Link.

Chie’s unique skill is Dragon Hustle, which increases Attack, Defense, Accuracy and Evasion for all party members. In effect, it’s a party-wide Heat Riser. It costs 150 SP so Chie can usually only use it once per fight unless you equip her with a Chakra Ring.

  1. Another suggestion: fuse an Auto-buff persona for MC and get rid of Auto-Tarukaja in this build. If you are running phys-party, Revolution might be a good replacement. Also, optionally you can keep Mabufu instead of Bufubyne.
