They currently live with Cream and Cheese.[4]

Appearance

Cheese (left) and Chocola (right).

Chocola is almost identical to Cheese, differing only in coloration. Like most other neutral Chao, they have a teardrop-shaped head with yellow tips on their arms, legs and the top of their head, and have a yellow pompom above them and pink butterfly-like wings. Unlike Cheese, however, Chocola has brown skin where Cheese has light blue. They also wear a blue bowtie.

History

Sonic Heroes

In Sonic Heroes, Chocola was kidnapped by Neo Metal Sonic (disguised as Sonic) alongside Froggy for their connection to Chaos. Chocola and Froggy were later stored inside Neo Metal Sonic while the robot copied their data on Chaos. Eventually, they were freed when Team Rose, who had been searching for them, defeated Neo Metal Sonic in the Egg Emperor, and Chocola was happily reunited with Cheese.

Soon after, Chocola and Team Rose arrived at the site where Neo Metal Sonic showed himself with Team Sonic, Team Dark and Team Chaotix, where Neo Metal Sonic used the data he had copied from Chocola, Froggy and the other teams to become Metal Madness. Chocola then remained behind while the teams fought Metal Madness and Metal Overlord. After Metal Sonic was defeated, Chocola and the majority of Team Rose said goodbye to Amy when she took after Sonic.

Powers and abilities

Like other Chao, Chocola is capable of flight in midair.

In other media

Archie Comics

In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. Chocola originally lived with the other Chao at the Chao Garden adjacent to Cream and Vanilla's estate in the Southern Baronies until the estate was attacked and the Chao Garden ruined by Snively. Amy rescued Chocola and his fellow Chao, and relocated them to New Mobotropolis.

After the Super Genesis Wave altered Sonic's multiverse, Chocola's past was changed to be the same as his game counterpart's. Currently, he lives with Vanilla and Gemerl.
