Attention chateau guests! Omochao speaking, I'll be your emcee for today's event!

— Omochao, Sonic the Hedgehog #33

Omochao[1] is a character that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a mass-produced, Chao-based helper robot that serves as presenters of the various Chao Races across Sonic's world.[1]


Omochao are a small robot modeled after a Neutral Chao. As such, they have round waterdrop-like heads with large eyes but no noses and round torsos smaller than their heads. Both their heads and torsos are light blue with a stripe of darker blue running down the middle. They also have smooth yellow feet with orange soles and tips but no legs, and gray cable-like arms with round yellow balls at the end for hands. Neither their arms or feet have digits. They also have small rivet studs around their framework and orange and yellow ripple-like eyes. Lastly, they have a small two-bladed propeller on top of their heads and a wind-up key on their backs, giving them the appearance of a wind-up toy.


Chao Races and Badnik Bases

At the White Park Chao Racing Circuit, several Omochao presented a Chao Race and invited people to inscribe their Chao in it. One of the Omochao also warned Rouge that Cream could not sign up for the races because she was too young, so Rouge signed herself up. Later, other Omochao were present at the racing circuit's finish line, serving as flagmen.[1] The next day, more Omochao would serve as flagmen for the subsequent Chao Races in White Park's racing circuit, right up to those preceding the semi-finals.[2]

One of the Omochao at the chateau later advised Tails and his friends not to run around in the corridors. Tails tried to tell the Omochao that an avalanche was approaching the chateau and that it should order an evacuation. At first, Omochao thought it would have been warned of such a danger if Tails' claims were true, but Amy eventually forced it to evacuate the guests. Omochao thus led the guests to the upper floor, where they were safe from the avalanche when it hit the chateau.[3]


The Omochao are fine, approachable, fast-talking, and polite robots. They usually stick up the rules and encourage others to follow a proper fashion. They also appear to have emotions, as they can get scared when threatened.[3]

Powers and abilities

Thanks to their propeller, the Omochao are capable of flight.[1]
