A Chaos Emerald is a powerful gem found in the Sonic the Hedgehog series that has made several appearances in crossovers with the Mario franchise. The Chaos Emeralds hold large amounts of power that can be used in various ways, and allow Sonic to transform into Super Sonic when all seven are collected. In crossover appearances, Chaos Emeralds usually appear as items in Dream Events in the Mario & Sonic series, as well as making smaller cameo appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series.
