The Chaos Emerald (ワープゲート Wāpugēto?, lit. "Warp Gate") is an item box power-up that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. If opened under the right conditions, it can take the player to one of the game's Special Stages.


The monitors with the Chaos Emerald power-up feature an orange Chaos Emerald on their screen.


The Chaos Emeralds can be found inside the first five Zones of Sonic the Hedgehog Triple Trouble, with one hidden in the first two Acts of each Zone.

If the player breaks a Chaos Emerald while carrying fifty Rings or more, it will open a Star Circle above itself that leads into one of the Special Stage where a Chaos Emerald gem can be earned. After a Chaos Emerald has been used, a Super Ring monitor appears in its place after the player exits the Special Stage. However, if the player does not have fifty Rings when opening a Chaos Emerald monitor, nothing will happen.
