The Chao Chase takes the form a pink and yellow whirlwind of an aura with flower petals surrounding it, both as an icon and on the tracks.
Once obtained, the player can utilize the Chao Chase by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Chao Chase will increase the speed of the user for a short amount of time. The duration of the Chao Chase is shown by the decreasing gauge on top of this power-up's icon on the bottom of the HUD whenever the Chao Chase is in effect. In addition, any rival character who make contact with the user while the Chao Chase is in effect will grant the user of the Chao Chase a short speed boost.
The Chao Chase can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 2, 8 and 14 respectively. For each upgrade, the Chao Chase will last longer.
