Shadow's ground trap. He creates a spot of distorted space.

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Roaming Chaos (ローミングカオス Rōmingukaosu?) is a chaos power used primarily by Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Shadow's Ground Trap.


When performing Roaming Chaos, the user invokes Chaos Control, creating a spot of distorted space in the shape of a purple and white orb, before throwing the orb away in a horizontal swing. The orb of distorted space will then float in midair and try to get back to the user until either an opponent makes contact with it, which will knock the opponent into midair, or the user performs Roaming Chaos again, thus neutralizing the first orb.

In gameplay, after having performed Roaming Chaos, the orb of distorted space will follow the player's movements by moving towards the player in an as direct path as possible until it arrives as the player's current position, where it will remain in rest. However, the closer the orb of distorted space gets to the player, the slower it will move.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Shadow, either with or against him.
