Game appearances

Sonic Adventure/Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut

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

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

Sonic Pinball Party

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

Sonic Rush


In Sonic Rush, the Koalas appeared as victims of Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega, who used them as organic batteries for their Badniks. The Koalas can be found in Dead Line where they pop out of destroyed Badniks.
