- For the version of this character after the Super Genesis Wave, see Chocola (Archie).
Chocola is a character mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a Chao and the "brother" of Cheese the Chao, who is the dear friend of Cream the Rabbit.
Chocola originally lived with several other Chao at the Chao Garden adjacent to Cream and Vanilla's estate in the Southern Baronies, where the Rabbit family watched over them. One day however, the estate was attacked by Snively Robotnik, who had detected the Chao Garden's magical energy deposit. Though Amy Rose came and saved them from Snively, their plantation and the Chao Garden were ruined in the process. As such, upon Amy's offer, Chocola and his fellow Chao relocated to New Mobotropolis with the Rabbit family, where the Chao re-establish themselves at a new Chao Garden around the Lake of Rings. There, Chocola chose to remain while his brother Cheese went on several adventures.
In comparison to his brother, Chocola is far less adventurous and prefers to stick to the anonymity of the Chao Garden.
Powers and abilities
As a Chao, Chocola can gain the traits of creatures to which he is exposed to as he grows. Once Chocola nears the end of his life-cycle, he can envelope himself in a cocoon and emerge as an egg—reborn as a new Chao with the traits he had in his past life.
