Espio focuses his powers to become invisible to his Rival.
— Loading screen, Sonic Rivals 2
When performing Chroma Camo, Espio does a quick, spinning leap into the air, saying "Now you see me..." Using his natural ability, Espio then turns himself invisible, which is signified by Espio becoming transparent and being surrounded by a pulsing white aura. Chroma Camo will then remain active for as long as there are energy in the Signature Meter, which begins to deplete once Chroma Camo is activated. In gameplay, the player has to press to activate this move. To slightly extend the duration of Chroma Camo, the player has to repeatedly press .
While active, Chroma Camo makes Espio invisible to his opponents in the stage, which include Badniks and the rival that Espio is currently facing (including in Multiplayer). In this state, Espio is invulnerable to any of the character-seeking Power-Ups in the game and is given a slight increase in running speed as well.
