The Chopper Chomp's icon takes the form of a water-enveloped Chopper, sporting its Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations design. In gameplay, this power-up becomes a water orb with the aforementioned Chopper circling around it
In gameplay, the Chopper Chomp can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Big. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Chopper Chomp if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned user.
Once obtained, the player can utilize the Chopper Chomp by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the user sets loose the Chopper Chomp which travels down the lane it was deployed on in front of the user. As this power-up moves forward, the Chopper Chomp will pass through any obstacle until it wears off or hits a rival character. Rival characters that make contact with the Chopper Chomp will take damage, causing them to lose Rings and slow down momentarily. To avoid the Chopper Chomp, the playable character has to either step out of its lane or jump over it.
The Chopper Chomp can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 6 and 12 respectively. For each upgrade, the player will get the chance to obtain more Chopper Chomps to use in the Projectile Item slot from a single Item Box; at level 6, there is a chance of getting two Chopper Chomps, and at level 12, there is a chance of getting three Chopper Chomps.
The Frozen Chopper Chomp is a variant of the Chopper Chomp that utilizes the freeze mechanic. It functions much like the Chopper Chomp, except that it freezes the rival characters it hit. It first appeared in Sonic Forces: Speed Battle.
