Water given agency via a mechanical head.


— Description, Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia

The Artificial Chaos (人工カオス Jinkō Kaosu?), also referred to as the Artificial Chaos Series[1][2][3] (人工カオス・シリーズ[3] Jinkō Kaosu Shirīzu?), are a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are mass-produced, computer-controlled bioweapons[2] and artificial life forms[3] developed by Professor Gerald Robotnik, designed as cyborg copies of Chaos. These lifeforms exist as masses of turquoise water with a mechanical head shaped like Chaos 0's. They occupy many areas onboard the Space Colony ARK, even after Project Shadow's shutdown.

Description[]

Universally, the Artificial Chaos are modeled after Chaos, specifically Chaos 0. They are powered by Chaos Drives, crystallized Chaos Emerald energy created during Project Shadow.[2][3] These lifeforms appear to be capable of mutation,[4] and are made out of water; this is possible thanks to the Chaos Drives themselves, which the Artificial Chaos use to harness liquids and create a fluid body.[2][3]

The Artificial Chaos are capable of performing quick tentacle attacks, and can pursue targets with laser irradiation from their eye sockets. Their water-based bodies also make them invulnerable to most attacks. However, they have a weak point: their head.[2]

History[]

Past[]

The details about the Artificial Chaos' creation are hazy, although the symbol on their heads suggests they were involved in Project Shadow. The creatures were created over fifty years ago by Gerald Robotnik onboard the Space Colony ARK on behalf of GUN who wanted their own weaponized "Chaos monsters."[1][5][6] The by-products of Gerald's experiments yielded the Artificial Chaos, who were based on "the god of an ancient culture" according to Maria Robotnik.[7] In time, the Artificial Chaos would be used as experimental research projects.[8][9]

Some time after being created, the Artificial Chaos went out of control when Gerald accidentally reversed the positive and negative electrode connectors within them, causing them to attack anyone in sight onboard the ARK.[10] The severity of the situation was so great that GUN Soldiers came to bring the experiments back in check. Although the Artificial Chaos situation would be resolved, Maria sensed sadness in the creatures as the battle unfolded.[11]

Having apparently survived the GUN purge that shut down Project Shadow and sealed off the Space Colony ARK, the Artificial Chaos were left behind to guard the space station.[12]

Sonic Adventure 2[]

In Sonic Adventure 2, the Artificial Chaos' solitude on the Space Colony ARK was disturbed when the parties of Sonic and Dr. Eggman made their way onboard the space station, prompting them to attack the intruders whenever they saw them.

Shadow the Hedgehog[]

An Artificial Chaos, from Shadow the Hedgehog.

In Shadow the Hedgehog, the Artificial Chaos were once again disturbed when the alien army named The Black Arms and GUN fought onboard the Space Colony ARK. Black Doom, the leader of the Black Arms, took an interest in the Artificial Chaos, calling them Gerald's legacy, and even remarked that "they are ours now", suggesting that the Black Arms took (or intended to take) control of the Artificial Chaos.[13] During his hunt for the Chaos Emeralds, Shadow would also have flashbacks about his encounter with the Artificial Chaos fifty years ago.
