Chie Satonaka is a playable character from Persona 4. An energetic girl with a love of kung-fu movies, she's one of the protagonist's classmates at Yasogami High School. Chie is energetic and outgoing, the "extrovert" compared to Yukiko being the "introvert." She has a bright and upbeat personality, often trying to cheer up the group by joking about the case. She can be somewhat short tempered, especially with Yosuke, and is slow to back down from a challenge. Chie, in a way, could be considered a "tomboy." She is obsessed with kung fu and is a huge fan of martial arts movies, most prominently Trial of the Dragon. She also has a poster of Bruce Lee in her room. Outside Naoto's dungeon, Chie mentions that as a kid, she had her own secret hideout near the mountain by Yukiko's house where she would pretend that a legendary kung fu master was teaching her special techniques. Chie's wish is to become a police officer some day. Chie's cooking skills are horrific and her cooking tastes generally unpleasant, causing them to be labeled as Mystery Food X. Fitting as an action movie fan, Chie is fond of large amounts of meat, such as grilled steak and beef bowls. Chie has strong sense of justice and a fierce desire to protect others. She is willing to defend strangers from being threatened and attacked by local delinquents. Even when outnumbered, she does not hesitate to intervene and speak out. Chie wants to protect Yukiko and the protagonist most of all, and they serve as strong motivators in her wanting to become stronger, constantly training her kung-fu moves and challenging herself physically. Though nominally fearless, Chie has some specific childish fears: she is terrified of ghost stories, thunder, locusts (and possibly other insects), and being in the dark. jealousy to someone with a better background than her, which is one aspect of her unhealthy relationship with Yukiko in which both of them are secretly guilty of hiding their true feelings from one another. After years of being with Yukiko who is treated as wealthier, more popular, more feminine, scoring higher grades in school and having more male admirers, Chie gradually develops an inferiority complex in comparing herself to Yukiko and is jealous of all the male attention Yukiko receives. As a result she comes to believe herself to be undesirable, especially compared to Yukiko. This causes her to derive satisfaction from Yukiko's need to rely on her for confidence and support at the beginning of the game. However, Chie herself repels these thoughts (alongside the weakness they derive from) and tries to be genuinely protective towards Yukiko to an unnatural extent, risking her well-being in the process. When Shadow Chie is defeated, she vows to overcome her complex and be a true friend to Yukiko. Despite that, she does genuinely care about Yukiko, and is willing to risk her life to save her. Within her Social Link, Chie tries to overcome her weakness by training with the protagonist to be the best person she can be, tormenting herself whenever she fails. Within fighting with a gang of bullies, she would taunt the bullies into a fight which would only aggravate them, who steps in to shield her, much to Chie's anger. Chie then realizes that she's only been showing off and causing trouble in the process, to her regret, and that she misunderstood by thinking that it's all up to her while forgetting about her friends. Furthermore, she reflects on her opinion of her weakness by observing how others handle their own: such as the rude and cowardly friend Takeshi who refuses to face his own weakness, and a gang of bullies who extort others by threatening them into shielding their own, Takeshi's included. Once facing the same bullies again, this time even forcing her to choose between protecting a child from being extorted or sparing the safety of her friend Yukiko, Chie accepts her weakness entirely by directly offering them to hit her if they hate her so much: since they had no means of manipulating Chie, they gave up and backed off. Chie would later contemplate on that and realize she's misunderstood her power: instead of adding the extra step of wanting to become self-reliant, its use was in directly protecting others.
