Chaos is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It 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 Master 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 Station Square only to be stopped by Super Sonic. Following this, Chaos, Tikal and the Chao he where protecting returned to their zone within the Master Emerald.
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.
Shattered World Crisis
After Sonic's World 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 where it kept the oceans from draining away from the planetary pieces. He later appeared in the city of Meropis to aid the beleaguered defenders-among them Sonic the Hedgehog and Rotor the Walrus. Chaos battled the Dark Guardian and defeated it by manipulating the water around them. Working together, the trio dispatched the Dark Guardian, while the rest of the Dark Gaia Creatures 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.
Powers and abilities
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 can also manipulate water to a great degree, using it to attack enemies and even preventing the oceans from draining away during the Shattered World Crisis.
