Game appearances

Sonic Adventure/Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut

The Skunk made its debut in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. In gameplay, Skunks can alter the stats, appearance and personality of a Chao. These animals are found inside Badniks. Simply destroy the Badnik to release the Skunk inside, and then touch it to pick it up. When released, the Skunks have a green sphere around them, which disappears shortly afterwards. They are found in the following Action Stages:

Upon entering a Chao Garden with a Skunk, it will leave the playable character and run around the garden. The Skunk will sparkle if it has not given them to a Chao in the garden. Should the player give a Skunk to a Chao, the Chao will embrace it, attaining its appearance and behavior and raising its stats according to the Skunk's. The Skunk will then lose its sparkle and disappear shortly after.

Sonic Adventure 2 /Sonic Adventure 2: Battle

In Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, the Skunks appear again as Animals used for raising Chao. The way the player acquires the Skunks, releases them into the Chao Garden, and uses them to alter Chao, is the same as in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. The Skunks similarly disappear after being used and possess a temporary green sphere around them when released from robots. However, they do not sparkle in Chao Gardens like in the previous title.

In gameplay, the Skunks are either found inside Badnik enemies or the second Chao Container opened in an Action Stage, or hiding somewhere in the Action Stages, usually inside Cages or Pipes. They are found in the following Action Stages:

Sonic Pinball Party

In Sonic Pinball Party, the Skunks played a role in the game's Story mode. In this game, the Skunks were among the Animals that came to Casinopolis, only to get kidnapped by Dr. Eggman and turned into robotic slaves. To save the Skunks and his other Animal friends, Sonic entered the Egg Cup Tournament. Once Sonic completes the game's Story mode, a shot of a Skunk leaving Casinopolis together with Sonic's friends and the other Animals is shown.

In Sonic Rush, the Skunks appeared as victims of Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega, who used them as organic batteries for their Badniks. The Skunks can be found in Dead Line where they pop out of destroyed Badniks.
