The Build – Persona 4 Golden Teddie Skills
By the end of the game, the build you’re going to most likely want on Teddie, out of all his normal leveling skills, his available social link skills and his optional bike skills, is this:
It’s nice to have Matarukaja and Marakunda on one character to maximize your party’s damage on bosses. It’s not strictly necessary to have both Bufudyne and Mabufudyne, so you could replace one of those with Evade Physical if you wanted, though I’m not sure it’s worth it.
This is a pretty standard build for Teddie. He does have some skills you might want to find a spot for, like Samarecarm and the aforementioned Evade Physical, but it’s hard to make a case that those skills are better than any of the skills listed above except possibly getting rid of one of Teddie’s ice spells.
What you could also do, if you planned on having Teddie wear an accessory that boosts Ice Damage, is get rid of Ice Boost and put Samarecarm there.

|Lowers Defense for one enemy

Bike Skills – Persona 4 Golden Teddie Skills
These are the Bike Skills available to Teddie in Persona 4 Golden. For more information on Bike Skills, check the Persona 4 Golden Bike Skills Guide.
|Removes stat downs from all allies
|Drains 30 health from an enemy
|Medium physical damage to all enemies with a chance of inflicting Enervation
|Increases ice resistance for one ally
|Triple evasion chance against physical attacks
Like many other party members, Teddie doesn’t get great options from his bike skills. The only one really worth mentioning is Evade Physical, which is a decent enough skill, although it’s arguable whether it’s worth wasting 5 afternoons to get.
Life Drain is, perhaps, the worst skill in the entire game. It steal a flat 30 HP which is never a significant amount of damage or healing at any point during the game, let alone later in the game when bike skills become available.
Unique Skill – Persona 4 Golden Teddie 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.
Teddie’s unique skill is Kamui Miracle, which you absolutely should not take. It randomly does one of 4 things to either all enemies or all allies:
- Fully heals HP/SP
- Downs all allies/enemies
- Inflicts a random status ailment
- No Effect
You might notice that fully healing all enemies is bad. Downing all allies is bad. And inflicting a random status ailment on all allies is also bad. This skill has a very high chance of doing something bad. Don’t take it. It’s a waste of a slot.
