The Master Trickster, Master of Surprise, the Unpredictable
Fate, Mirage, Aladdin (formerly)
Chaos, voiced by Matt Frewer, is a winged blue cat who desires that life be unpredictable, full of surprise and change.
Chaos naturally and instinctively causes exactly what he is named for so he thrives on the unexpected and unpredictable; he finds order to be boring and is horrified of the idea of something being "tidy and mundane, living life as expected" and he does not like cliches. Therefore Chaos has made it his personal goal to cause as much chaos, mischief, and unpredictable madness as possible; he does it all for fun, with a slapstick sense of humor that easily rivals, if not outshines, Genie's.
As a trickster, Chaos is very cunning, and deceptively intelligent, as well as a skilled and patient actor as he pretended to have fallen for Mirage's trick and was fully aware of her reason for doing so (she wanted him to bring devastation to Agrabah), which prompted him to arrange for her to indirectly save the day, therefore making life more interesting.
Chaos also seems to have a warranted sense of high self-esteem and arrogance, as he is easily irked by others giving him commands or even insulting him. And he has expressed a dislike of Fate, the very idea of everything happening as planned, predetermined, or even predestination to be against what he believes in and represents. And he seems to hate to lose as he mentioned Fate cheats at cards.
His only appearance on the show is in the episode "When Chaos Comes Calling." He appears as a winged-blue cat with godlike powers who thrives on the unpredictable. When Mirage can't destroy Agrabah, she convinces him that the place is too commonplace and boring, so that Chaos pays Aladdin a visit. While there, he gives surprising twists to Aladdin's life, such as an evil twin and genie, and sets out to make his life more exciting. All the while, Mirage watches, unaware that this is really just a clever plan by Chaos himself to teach her a lesson about always being evil.
Chaos's only other appearance was in a short Aladdin comic in the Disney Adventures magazine where Aladdin is fighting a devilish entity simply called Evil while Genie is on vacation. Chaos shows up and strips Evil of his powers in a Deus ex Machina type ending saying, "C'mon, I HAD to step in. Things were getting too predictable!"
Powers and abilities
Chaos is one most powerful being in the Disney universe shown to date, and arguably either the first or second most powerful in the Aladdin universe. Genie stated "he has more power in his whisker than a palace full of genies" and he can grant his own wishes allowing him to rewrite reality into whatever he wants. He can perform many magical powers like conjuration (making thing appear from out of nowhere through mere will), invisibility, enchantments, illusions, shapeshifting himself as well as others, create new beings, especially evil replicas of real people, teleportation. flying, controlling the elements, etc.
The only limit on his power is Fate which is also the only force known to be stronger than him. He cannot defy fate or change what it had decreed, therefore he is not all-knowing. Nevertheless, because of his sheer power he is respected and or feared by many, like Genie, and even Mirage, who is called Evil-Incarnate.
- Considering the crossover between Hercules and Aladdin, the fate Chaos was referring too could possible be the Fates of Greek and Norse mythology. Although he spoke of Fate in pronoun, referring to Fate as a "he" and as a single individual, which makes it unlikely he's talking about the three Fates.
- He is called "The Master Trickster" by Mirage, as well as "Master of Surprise, the Unpredictable".
- Chaos possesses several traits similar to the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, such as disappearing, leaving only his grin behind, and leaving footprints before actually appearing.
- Like Genie, his magical tricks tend to reference other media
- He does get angry when people start giving him orders, warning in a threatening voice not to do so. This may be because chaos has no order.
