Website / Chaos Island
aka: Chao Island

Your number one source for Chao information!

Chao Island is a minorly known Sonic fansite that started out in 2000. Created by Scott Campbell, better known as 'Mooncow' to users of the forum, the site was originally hosted by Tripod, until it was shut down for major revamping. Gone for many years, it eventually resurfaced in 2008. Currently, the website is maintained jointly by Mooncow and his friend and fellow admin, Fusion. Members have created animated shorts, poorly made video games, and several fanfics about the misadventures of the users of the forums, and the forums themselves get as much as if not more traffic than the actual website.

This site shows examples of:

  • Abomination Accusation Attack: The Monochrome Legion, according to certain members they are Commie Nazis.
  • Ambiguously Gay:
    • To an extent, ShadouZaHejjihoggu and ChaoBreeder2440. Also TechnoGeisha on Ryan Gosling and Korramaru on Kenji.
  • And I Must Scream: How anyone could function in day to day life yet act like Rubs is still scary to think about.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Fusion becoming the new administrator, and to an extent, the new moderators from early 2009.
  • And Now For Something Completely Different: The new redesigned sites from 2008 and 2009 respectively, and the upgrades from a standard Tripod site to PHPBB2 to PHPBB3.
  • Badass: Subjective, but many would argue that some members are more bad. bottom than the others.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Disarming the bomb in the Fire Temple in the game which most of the time, you'll get to with less than a minute on the clock.
    • Riku upstanding Blade to Silver probably also counts.
  • Big "NO!": The reaction at first whenever JmTsHaW was promoted to moderator, averted when he turned out to be a lot better than some mods.
  • Bio Punk: A few people are currently heading an RP project which revolves around this and Cyber Punk.
  • The Blank: Fusion and Xeno, and Riku whenever he tried to mock them.
  • But Thou Must:
    • Certain users love to force new users to read the rules religiously. (and they know who they are)
    • Email verification, though that's a given on most sites.
    • New users just looooove to go away and return in the chat.
  • Butt Monkey: Rubs, even after his banning.
    • Every "underage" user.
    • About half of the userbase agrees that Loudclaw fits this category. The other half either has sympathy for him, enjoys being around him, or is Cat Lover Molly. OK, much less than half likes him, but he's really not /that/ bad.
    • Eevee Fan.
  • Cluster F-Bomb:
    • Got Dama banned.
      Dr. Will: "Mephiles was bored of —— so he came here to do boring —— because he was ——ing bored of being bored with ——."
    • wic. also tends to do this on tinychat, although sometimes it is mixed with a bit of {{Tourettes .poocock Syndrome}}.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: Tons in the chatbox.
  • Cute and Psycho: Rune the Koopa
  • Cyber Punk: See Bio Punk above.
  • Dating Do-Si-Do: Oh god, it's ridiculous how much of this goes on here.
    • It's actually more annoying when you realize most of the members are barely pubescent.
    • Loudclaw to nobody to Tillymoo to Cat Lover Molly to nobody back to Molly...ah forget it.
  • Dark Fic: A lot of the RPs tend to veer into this, most of the time ultimately failing and coming off as fake melodramatics.
    • Chao Robot RP
    • The Dark Chronicles
    • Chao Garden Roleplaying
  • Darker and Edgier: Invoked by Triert:
    Triert: i was thinking they'd make a game where the chao blow eachothers heads off with ak 47s
  • Everything's Better with Platypi: Da Platypus Chao
  • Fake Difficulty:
    • The final boss of The Game, specifically Beau's section
    • And Fox Boy's
  • Fake Longevity:
    • The walkways in The Game serve this purpose.
    • And those long cutscenes
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: DDDDDDDD
  • Grammar Nazi: This has died down recently, but it used to be nearly every older member that had been around before 2009 or so.
  • Grey and Gray Morality: Applies to members of the site. When arguments break out, expect this to be the only thing true about everyone.
  • Have I Mentioned I am Gay?: wic. Although, this has died down in recent years, considering he's not as flamboyant as he used to be.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Pastaa~Chao.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Enzo.
  • Jaywalking Will Ruin Your Life: Blade Genexis will kick people from the chatbox and give them a warning for telling another user "shut up." This could also be a case of Very Disproportionate Retribution, especially considering how only three warnings can warrant a ban, and if saying shut up give you your third warning...
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A lot of the older (in age and join date) qualify here in general.
  • Jerkass: Again, older members qualify. And Loudclaw. Like, two people like him.
  • Mood Whiplash: Shadowrules in nearly every situation she was involved in.
  • The Movie: Chao Island: Big Damn Superb Movie. Or better known as CI:BDSM.
  • Precision F-Strike: Twi's super rant.
  • Rule 63: It became popular to make a gender flipped account after Flame made an account called Flema.
  • Running Gag: The word "choa" replaces "chao" all over the site every April Fool's Day.
    • Plenty of in-jokes abound, though most don't deserve mention.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Banned user and non-stop All Periods Are PMS named Shadowrules harassed Shadow Roamer with P Ms and chats for half a year, and constantly made alts.
  • Take That: Riku calling most of the Pokemon fanbase "rabid, screaming hyenas with no lives whatsoever." Funny thing is, Riku likes Pokemon, atleast Generation I and II and their respective remakes.
  • Weapon of Choice: A lot of users have a weapon that they always use when Role Playing.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: Seems like both of the new moderators from May 2010 had pin avatars at the time of their election. Let's just say it caught on. That got reaaally confusing.
  • You.illegitimate child: A topic was made for the sole purpose of crediting a 12-year-old spewing unfitting memes at a poor 6-year-old Butt Monkey on Skype.
