Chie Satonaka (里中 千枝, Satonaka Chie?) is an upbeat girl with an obsession with kung fu, even using those techniques in battle. The best friend of Yukiko Amagi, Chie enters the TV world after Yukiko is sent to the TV world and may become the next victim from Inaba's murder. There she encounters her Shadow who represents her jealousy of Yukiko's feminine side and her talents, as well as her wish and need to maintain control over Yukiko. With Yu's and Yosuke Hanamura's help, Chie confronts her other self and joins the Investigation Team.
Following the encounter with her Shadow, Chie receives the Persona Tomoe Gozen (トモエ, Tomoe?), a muscular female figure wearing a yellow outfit and armed with a naginata, that she uses in combat while she performs kicks. Throughout Yu's interactions with Chie (which can also be intimate), she discovers that she genuinely wanted to protect Yukiko without any underlying selfish motivations. After this, Tomoe evolves into Suzuka Gongen (スズカゴンゲン?), whose yellow jumpsuit turns black and is decked in silver samurai armor. The desire to protect people eventually inspires her to seek a career as a police officer. In the re-release Persona 4: Golden, Chie's Persona can evolve to a third level to become Haraedo-no-Okami (ハラエドノオオカミ, Haraedo-no-Ōkami?), which has golden armor and a long flowing cape.
Chie serves as the player's Social Link to The Chariot (戦車, Sensha?); this is symbolized in the animated series by Yu's usage of the Persona Ara Mitama (アラミタマ?).
She is playable in Persona 4 Arena alongside Tomoe Gozen; In Persona 4 Arena, Chie joins Yu, Yosuke and Yukiko to investigate the TV world after seeing the Midnight Channel. When she enters, she is forced to fight her friends as well as a man, Akihiko Sanada. She is voiced by Yui Horie in Japanese. In English she is voiced by Tracey Rooney for Persona 4, and Erin Fitzgerald provides her English voice for Persona 4 Arena, Persona 4 Golden and in the anime. Minami Tsukui portrays her in the musical. In the designing of the character, various sketches were made with some of them being reminiscent to previous Persona characters.
