- You may be looking for the Chaotix Detective Agency of the Sonic X Zone, or the Chaotix of Light Mobius.
Team Chaotix, also known simply as the Chaotix, are a trio of Mobians who work as detectives for hire. While not Freedom Fighters, they have occasionally worked towards the same goal: opposing Dr. Eggman.
As a group, the Chaotix have been on a number of adventures together, including facing the monstrous Metal Overlord and meeting Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel. They are also frequent allies of Knuckles the Echidna, having first worked with him to battle Dr. Eggman along with Mighty. (SU: #63, VG: KC, SH)
When a gaping hole opened up in the sky and the Black Arms descended from the clouds causing pandemonium in the city below, the Chaotix worked with most of their friends and G.U.N.'s forces to repel their invasion of the planet. After finding five top secret military information disks on Prison Island, the Chaotix eventually boarded the Space Colony ARK, where they raced to hack the data disks. After finally getting inside, Charmy activated a film showing a sane Professor Gerald Robotnik, who referred to Shadow as his "son" and told him that he was the only hope for the planet. It was revealed that the only way to defeat the Black Arms was to destroy the Black Comet using the Eclipse Cannon, a powerful weapon built into the ARK. As the video ended, Maria stepped into the frame and gave Shadow the inspiration he needed to break through Black Doom's control. (VG: ShaH)
The Second Genesis Wave
After the world had once again been reset by Dr. Eggman's second Genesis Wave, the group aided Sonic in searching for Tails, Amy and Knuckles, who had all recently vanished, when they where apprehended by Copy Robot and captured to be turned into Roboticized Masters by Dr. Eggman and his new partner Dr. Wily. (SU: #51)
Now under the control of the two doctors as the Roboticized Masters Vector Man, Espio Man and Charmy Man, the trio were sent to destroy Sonic and Tails, along with their new friends Mega Man and Proto Man in the Skull Egg Zone. However, the combined efforts of Sonic, Mega Man, and Tails found the trio restored to normal, and in gratitude they set out to assist Proto Man in his efforts to save Dr. Light. (SU: #52, #53, StH: #249)
Once the rest of Sonic's friends had been saved, the Chaotix took part in the final battle against the horde of time-cloned Robot Masters below the Wily Egg. The battle raged on until the launch of the Super Genesis Wave. (StH: #250, #251, MM: #27, SU: #54)
Detectives for Hire
After the beginning of The Shattered World Crisis, the trio were hired by Princess Sally to search for the Chaos Emeralds, which where vital in restoring the world to normal. Their assignment took them to the Pumpkin Hill Zone, where they aided Knuckles in fighting off a force of Dark Gaia's Minions. Afterwards, Knuckles agreed to aid the them in search for an Emerald that was in the area. Unfortunately, they soon ran afoul of mercenaries hired by Dr. Eggman for the same mission: the Hooligans. After a brief battle that ended when both sides realized that neither had the Chaos Emerald both had detected in the area, the Chaotix and Knuckles entered Aquatic Mine, where they found the gemstone and Light Gaia. Another encounter with the Hooligans and the monstrous Dark Gaia Titan nearly resulted in catastrophe, but the Chaotix succeeded in reclaiming the Emerald and fooling their competition. At Knuckles' suggestion, they gave him the Chaos Emerald for safe-keeping and continued on their mission. (SU: #63, #64, #65, #66)
The Chaotix later sent Espio to Casino Park to investigate the Chaos Emerald Championship, and he arranged for Knuckles to be added to the roster for the tournament. Espio eventually lost to Bean, much to the chagrin of his fellow detectives. (StH: #268, #269)
- The members of the Chaotix made their debut in the game Knuckles Chaotix. However, the game series only considers Vector, Espio, and Charmy as the whole team. This is further shown in the Sonic X comics, as well as Sonic Heroes, where they are depicted as a detective agency rather than a fighting force. While Mighty, Heavy and Bomb all first appeared in Knuckles Chaotix as well, they are not considered to be members of the Chaotix.
