Chao were going to be in Sonic Boom

And they looked like this:

Source. (Yes, this is old stuff.)

YEP. We 100% did not stray completely from the original design of chao and make these dragon creatures. No. Siree. Bob. (They are admittedly still cute.)
Even Knuckles stayed closer to the original than these guys.

That said, I don't want Chao Gardens in a game as glitchy and bad as Rise of Lyric anyways. Prolly would have made me clip through the floor while petting them.

I think they would have been cute..as something else besides Chao. Like if they were just straight up dragon hatchlings, that would have been adorable. :3

As much as I need a new chao garden, Sonic Boom is certainly not the place for it. I'm glad this was scrapped. Those dragon-thingies are cute, but... they don't look like they belong in a Sonic game. What I don't understand is why they would move so far away from the design, yet keep a simillar name? I mean, really? Chaos?! They're hardly chao-like.

On the one hand, I'm glad this didn't happen.

On the other hand, I'm disappointed that Chao were scrapped from a recent game.

On one hand, their design is completely off. On the other, according to Sonic Channel, Chaos (the one from Sonic Adventure) was a mutated chao,
and Perfect Chaos looked like a giant water dragon of sorts, meaning they've made the translation from just a little chao turning into Chaos much simpler and logical.

Because I certainly didn't automatically assume Chaos was originally a chao. Chaos Chao do make you question the relation between them though.

This would also make me guess that they considered bringing back chao and Chaos for Sonic Boom, an interesting concept.

I personally am glad that these things never came to fruition. Though the fact that they considered it at all was a good sign. Even if the dragon-like designs were inspired by Chaos taking on dragon-like forms, these designs seem entirely random and unrelated. An important appeal with Chao is that how you raise them influences their appearance, and their designs being somewhat simplistic makes development easy to witness. With these designs, the differences seem too extreme. It makes me doubt that there would have been a Chao Garden and more likely believe that there would be multiple random creatures, called Chao, that are voices by Tara Strong to be tiny-but-tough.

Chao should return, and I wouldn't even cry if it meant replacing the Hero Chao and Dark Chao, but they need to maintain the Neutral Chao. Without even resembling those Chao, it is hard to say they are Chao at all.

^I agree with this.

Its worth pointing out that if Chao come back in a real Sonic game, well, they'll be in a real Sonic game. Sonic Boom screwed around with their designs because Sonic Boom did that with everything. A SEGA Sonic game wouldn't deviate from the familiar design.

Is everyone sure these were actually supposed to be Chao? (Though I wouldn't be surprised after seeing that hillbilly Eggman...) They are labeled as Chaos rather than just Chao, after all. I guess the people who worked on this game maybe just didn't know the plural is still Chao, but really? These things just seem like too far a stretch. Maybe they had something to do with Chaos Emeralds? I haven't played the final game though, so I don't even know if the emeralds were involved... -.-

The team that made Sonic Boom is barely associated with SEGA. And I can promise you that there are people who should know better who still use "Chaos" as a plural for Chao. Given the basic structure of cute, big eyes, wings, stubby limbs, and different adaptation, there isn't any doubt that these were reimaginings. We should be glad they were mercy killed by deadlines.

I guess you're right, I was just in disbelief I suppose. The people who worked on the Sonic Boom games really had no clue what they were doing. I'm also glad deadlines prevented this. I want Chao back, but not like this...

After all this time I was sure Chao were going to be back... and they still aren't. What madness is this?

I do have to say though, I am so glad they aren't forgotten about! Best virtual pets ever.
