The Chaotix is a group of characters that debuted in the game Knuckles' Chaotix. They later appeared in the Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comics, Fleetway's British comic series Sonic the Comic, and Sonic X. A downsized version of the original Chaotix group, known as Team Chaotix, returned after a lengthy absence in the game Sonic Heroes, much to the delight of fans.
The original Chaotix group consisted of:
What first brought this varied group together was the discovery of the Newtrogic High Zone, where Dr. Eggman built a strange amusement park on based on the island's power to amplify the Master Emerald. Dr. Eggman also sent Metal Sonic to fight the Chaotix. After defeating the giant Metal Sonic, the group mostly dispersed.
Knuckles, being the loner he is, quickly went back to guard the Master Emerald. Bomb and Heavy's whereabouts are unknown. Mighty, who had also appeared alongside Sonic and Ray the Flying Squirrel in SegaSonic the Hedgehog, also went his own way.
Vector, Espio, and Charmy, the remaining members, formed the Team Chaotix detective agency who would do just about anything, within legal reason, for money. Despite the fact that the detective agency has a ninja who throws three-foot wide shuriken, money has been scarce. The story in Sonic Heroes begins after the group receives a strange telephone call.
Espio, Charmy and Vector also appear as detectives trying to get to the bottom of the 50-year-old Project Shadow research programme in Shadow the Hedgehog. Charmy appears in Prison Island searching for G.U.N.'s top-secret files, Espio appears in Mad Matrix trying to hack into Dr. Eggman's mainframe, and Vector must extract all the data into the computer of the ARK in Cosmic Fall.
In the Archie comic series, the Chaotix were formed when the primary members ended up working alongside each other to stop Robotnik's threats against the island, and when they were dealing with Archimedes' mysterious actions. Archimedes would eventually become part of the Chaotix when it was revealed that he was just testing Knuckles. Although reluctant to become a team, the members of the Chaotix eventually realized that they best work together to help protect the island. Over time, other members joined the Chaotix, including Julie-su, Ray the Flying Squirrel and Saffron Bee.
Team Chaotix's theme song is also called Team Chaotix.
