Chaos is a mutated Chao, who possessed high intelligence and abilities that far exceed the others. It is a powerful and mysterious higher being. Although Dr. Eggman referred to it as "The God of Destruction", it actually has a gentle personality.

This form is it's most common form, and is the form which is whay Chaos Chao are based upon. You can see its brain through its transparent head.

Appearances

Sonic Adventure

In recent times, after unveiling ancient stone tablets describing the destructive water-like beast, Dr. Eggman shattered the Master Emerald releasing Chaos and persuaded him to help him with his plans for world domination. After Eggman's plans fell through thanks to Sonic and his friends, Chaos absorbed the negative energies from the Chaos Emeralds becoming Perfect Chaos once more. To fight Perfect Chaos, Sonic absorbed the positive energies of the Chaos Emeralds and transformed into Super Sonic and defeated him. Perfect Chaos transformed back into Chaos and Tikal once again sealed herself away, taking Chaos with her. Neither Chaos nor Tikal have been seen since.

It is revealed during each of the main stories that in the past, Tikal had initially met Chaos under peaceful conditions. She became a friend to the chao and by extension him. However, when she found out about her father Pachacamac's plan to steal the emeralds to gain power, she attempted to tell Chaos to flee, but as the guardian of the shrine Chaos could not leave the place. When Pachacamac attacked the shrine, he barged past Tikal and the Chao, enraging Chaos and causing him to harness the emerald's energy to become Perfect Chaos.

Sonic Channel

Chaos has their own page on Sonic Channel, which is written in Japanese.[1] Full text:

「チャオ」の突然変異体。高度な知能とずば抜けた能力を持つ。
 温厚な性格で、かつて七つのエメラルドのパワーを得て祭壇の周囲に清らかな水を保ち、外敵から同族を守護していた。
 しかし、ナックルズの祖先である戦闘民族がカオスエメラルドを強奪しようとして仲間のチャオを犠牲にしたとき、怒ったカオスは7つのエメラルドを取り込んでパーフェクトカオスに変化し暴走。大洪水を起こし世界を滅ぼさんとした。
 ティカルの祈りにより、その意識と共にカオスはマスターエメラルドの中に封印される。七つのエメラルドは行方不明になり、混沌を呼ぶ石「カオスエメラルド」と称されるようになるのだった。

Translation:

 A mutated Chao. Possessing high intelligence and abilities that far exceed those of the rest. A gentle personality; once profiting from the power of the seven Chaos Emeralds, which guaranteed clear water around the altar and protected its race from foreign tribes. However, Knuckles' ancestors were a war-like people and slaughtered many of [Chaos'] fellow Chao in order to plunder the Chaos Emeralds, causing the enraged Chaos to go berserk, absorbing the 7 Chaos Emeralds and transforming into Perfect Chaos. The resultant heavy floods destroyed the civilisation.
 Tikal, by means of a prayer, linked her consciousness with Chaos and they were sealed in the Master Emerald. As for the 7 Emeralds, they were unaccounted for, but it was at that point that the stones came to be called "Chaos Emeralds".

Sonic Chronicles: Codex

Chaos has an entry in the Sonic Chronicles Codex, under Perfect Chaos.

 Perfect Chaos is a powerful and mysterious higher being, which Eggman refers
 to as the "god of destruction". Perfect Chaos is actually only the most recent
 form of the being, taken by Chaos after it absorbed the negative energies of
 all seven Chaos Emeralds.
 
 Summoned by Pachacamac's attempt to steal the Master Emerald, Chaos attacked
 the echidnas and nearly wiped them all out. A peaceful echidna named Tikal,
 Pachacamac's daughter, soothed Chaos and managed to seal it, along with 
 herself, inside the Master Emerald. The energy surge threw Angel Island into
 the air, causing it to hover over the land now known as Mystic Ruins.
 
 Later, Eggman released Chaos from the Master Emerald to help him in his plans
 for world domination. While Eggman's plans fell through thanks to Sonic and
 his friends, Chaos decided to take the Chaos Emeralds for himself. Chaos
 absorbed the negative energies from the Chaos Emeralds, becoming Perfect Chaos
 once more. To fight Perfect Chaos, Sonic absorbed the positive energies of the
 Chaos Emeralds and transformed into Super Sonic to defeat the powerful god.
 Defeated, Perfect Chaos transformed back into Chaos once more, and Tikal
 appeared to take Chaos away in a blinding flash of light.
 
 Neither Perfect Chaos nor Tikal have been seen since.

Trivia

  • In the original Japanese cut scenes of Sonic Adventure, Chaos makes Chao sounds when transforming - the only mention of him being related to the Chao in-game. It was removed in later versions.[2]
  • The predecessor of the Sega Dreamcast was the Sega Saturn, which was known to not be able to handle transparency very well, if at all. Being a Dreamcast launch Game, Sega made sure to show off the capabilities of the Dreamcast hardware with a fully transparent Chaos as a main character.
