Chaos is a Chao that mutated into a water elemental, which was responsible for all but wiping out the Knuckles Clan of Echidnas. Imprisoned in the Black Emerald by Tikal, a girl from that tribe, Chaos remained trapped for centuries until he was released by the maniacal Dr. Eggman. After accumulating power from various Chaos Emeralds, he attacked the hidden city of the ancients, Station Square, only to be stopped by Super Sonic and Knuckles. Following this, Chaos, Tikal and the Seven Server Chao returned to the Black Emerald. He exists in both the Pre-and Post-Super Genesis Wave timeline.
Awoken by Eggman
After discovering the legend of the Chaos, the beast was awoken by Dr. Eggman after the scientist shattered the Master Emerald. The Doctor used Chaos in his plan to destroy Station Square, hunting down Chaos Emeralds to help Chaos grow in strength and size. However, it eventually turned against it's master and, in it's Perfect form, ravaged the city itself with a devastating flood. The beasts rampage was put to an end by Super Sonic. Reduced back to its base form, it returned to it's home inside the Master Emerald. (SA/SADX)
Shattered World Crisis
After Mobius was broken up due to the Super Genesis Wave, Angel Island was rocked by the rising landmasses. In the midst of this commotion, Chaos emerged from the Master Emerald and dove down to the planet below. He later appeared in the city of Meropis to aid the beleaguered defenders-among them Sonic the Hedgehog and Rotor Walrus. Chaos battled the Dark Guardian and defeated it by manipulating the water around them. Seeing this, Rotor realized that Chaos was responsible for preventing the oceans from draining away from the planetary fragments. Working together, the trio dispatched the Dark Guardian, while the rest of Dark Gaia's Minions were defeated by Coral the Betta, Tikal, and Pearly the Manta Ray reciting the Mystic Melody with Aquarius. Chaos' presence and the successful restoration of the city's energy shield renewed King Puff and Queen Angelica's faith in Coral's abilities, and she was reinstated as priestess of the Eusebes Shrine.

As a being composed of pure water, Chaos had the ability to elongate his body to attack enemies from a distance, as well as to change shape in order to dodge attacks or fit in narrow spaces. By absorbing Chaos Emeralds or similar objects of power, he has the ability to evolve into progressively stronger incarnations of himself, each differentiated from his original form of Chaos 0 by a number from one to seven, the seventh also being known as Perfect Chaos.
- Chaos' appearance in the comic mirrors that of his appearance in Sonic Adventure. However, certain important events from the game were changed to match with the comic's universe. Instead of being sealed inside the black Super Emerald, Chaos was sealed in the Master Emerald itself. He was released when Eggman shattered the Master Emerald, which he also did in the comic, but only to help Chaos regain power with the broken shards. In the comic, Chaos transforms when he absorbs all seven Super Emeralds, while in the game, he transforms after absorbing the normal Chaos Emeralds (there are only seven emeralds in the games, while the amount of emeralds in the comic was unlimited at the time, though the amount later became seven). In the comic, Chaos transforms into Perfect Chaos when he breaks into the Station Square power plant and absorbs six Super Emeralds, taking the seventh from Tails' crashed plane. In the game, however, he gets the first six Chaos Emeralds from the Altar of the Emeralds.
