The Elephant made its debut in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. In gameplay, Elephants can alter the stats, appearance and personality of a Chao. These animals are found inside Badniks. Simply destroy the Badnik to release the Elephant inside, and then touch it to pick it up. When released, the Elephants have a green sphere around them, which disappears shortly afterwards. They are found in the following Action Stages:

Upon entering a Chao Garden with an Elephant, it will leave the playable character and run around the garden. The Elephant will sparkle if it has not given them to a Chao in the garden. Should the player give an Elephant to a Chao, the Chao will embrace it, attaining its appearance and behavior and raising its stats according to the Elephant's. The Elephant will then lose its sparkle and disappear shortly after.

In this game, the Elephants were among the Animals that came to Casinopolis, only to get kidnapped by Dr. Eggman and turned into robotic slaves. To save the Elephants and his other Animal friends, Sonic entered the Egg Cup Tournament. Once Sonic completes the game's Story mode, a shot of an Elephant leaving Casinopolis together with Sonic's friends and the other Animals is shown.
