Chuckles[1] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a Chao that took on Knuckles the Echidna's traits.


Chuckles looks a lot like most other neutral Chao, having a light blue body with its limbs and head having yellow tips. It also has pink wings.


When Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna arrived at a locale Chao Garden, they started to interact with the Chao they met there. One of the Chao there ended up inheriting Knuckles' super strength, prompting Sonic to name it Chuckles.[1]

Some time after, Dr. Eggman showed up under the assumption that their were magical items in the area. He would be disappointed when finding out there was not. Thus he went on to destroy Chuckles' home, forcing it and the rest of the Chao to move to the Lake of Rings. During the skirmish, however, Chuckles assisted Knuckles in taking out Eggman's machine.[2]


Like most Chao, Chuckles displays a cheerful and welcoming nature to Sonic and his friends.

Powers and abilities

As a Chao, Chuckles can gain the traits of creatures to which it is exposed to as it grows, like when it took on Knuckles' traits. Once Chuckles nears the end of its life-cycle, it can envelope itself in a cocoon and emerge as an egg—reborn as a new Chao with the traits it had in its past life.[3] It is as well capable of flight.

Having taken on Knuckles' abilities, Chuckles has demonstrated strength above that of an average Chao.[1][2]
