In Sonic Unleashed, he loses his memory after Sonic lands on top of him in his heavy Werehog form. Chip then follows Sonic on his journey in the hopes of regaining his memory. Along the way, he develops a love for Chocolate Chip Sundaes and chocolate, thus, Sonic gives him the name "Chip". After putting back the sixth continent, Chip remembers that his real name is Light Gaia. Every few million years, he and Dark Gaia awake. Dark Gaia destroys the planet and he has to put it back together. Chip states that when Dr. Eggman split the earth apart, he and Dark Gaia were awakened too early, leading to both Dark Gaia's disintegration and Chip's own amnesia. When Dark Gaia is revived, Chip calls upon the power of the seven Sacred Temples and creates the Gaia Colossus. He restrains Dark Gaia long enough for Sonic to attack him. After Dark Gaia is defeated by Super Sonic, Chip sends Sonic back to the surface of the earth, and then goes back to sleep. All that gets left behind is his necklace which Sonic puts on his wrist. Chip also appears in the Sonic Unleashed short called Night of the Werehog. Chip is voiced by Anthony Salerno in English and Ryoko Shiraishi in Japanese.
