In addition, Styrásh also has a reflexive pronoun, chón, which is sometimes translated as "self". It is used like Tharian reflexive pronouns, such as "myself" or "themselves", to indicate that the action described in the sentence is performed by the subject on itself. However, unlike the Tharian pronouns, chón usually does not take different forms.

Vaiá iú chón
"I see myself"

Melát só thyrón'herín chón
"The jellyfish deceives itself"

When used with plural subjects, chón can also be indicating that the subjects are performing the action on each other, rather than on themselves. Usually, context allows the listener to tell which of the two meanings is intended. When that is insufficient, the sentence might be paraphrased in a number of ways for greater clarity. For example, one could modify chón with the preposition senés "between" to specify that the subjects perform the action on each other.

Vaiá iuí chón
"We see ourselves" or "We see each other"

Vaiá iuí senés chón
"We see each other"
