Shadow's ground power. If the R button is pressed, he hides in distorted space.

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Chaos Burst (カオスバースト Kaosubāsuto?) is a chaos power used primarily by Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Shadow's Ground Power.


When performing Chaos Burst, the user spins around and uses Chaos Control to hide away in an area of distorted space, disappearing from sight. When emerging from the distorted space, the user briefly creates a small white and purple bubble around himself that damages any opponents that makes contact with it, as well as launching them for multiple hits.

When holding the R button, the player's character disappears, though the character's shadow can still be seen. Whilst hiding, the player is immune to harm, and the player will continue moving in the direction he/she was moving towards or facing when the move was executed. When the R button is released, the player will emerge to deliver the attack.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Shadow, either with or against him.
