|Chico the Chao|
|Gender||Genderless, appears Male|
Chico the Chao (チーコー ・ザ ・チャウ Chiikoo za Chau) is a Hero Chao and the companion of Zarina the Tiger. Though Chao are genderless, Chico appears as a male.
Even though he does not share any form of appearance to Zarina, his appearance could be due to the fact that her father is a canine. Chico appears as a white Chao with silver-and-gray fur covering his body. He has matching wings and sharp claws and a long fluffy tail. He also has a golden halo floating above his head.
Like any other Chao, Chico is playful and kind, and is very sensitive to Artymis' feelings. In addition, as a Hero Chao he is much nicer than other Chaos and will voice his annoyance when someone is annoying Frost. Despite when he is mad, only Hikari and Cheese is able to calm him down.
Flare is whom Chico will bond with.
Chico has many abilities due to his Chao physiology in addition to some powers he inherited through his bond with Zarina.
- Spark manipulation: Through his bond with Zarina, Chico has gained the ability to manipulate sparks.
- Dragon physiology: Due to her bond with Zarina, Chico has taken on many physical traits, namely her father's canine-tail and claws.
- Reincarnation: As a Chao, Chico reincarnates at the end of each life cycle.
It is unknown when Zarina and Chico met, but they formed a strong and powerful bond which resulted in Chico gaining canine like features, which was confusing to Zarina.
Chico appears giving Zarina a letter that was sent to her boy Rouge. Later, he appears during the search. It is eventually revealed to why Chico has the canine features: because of Zarina's birth father being a jackal.
