Battle For The Nayborhood is an adventure game created by Namsean1998. It is set on an island called the "Neverhood", populated by small creatures called "Chaos". The story is when an outcast chao named Kogg infects the island with a fungus that mutates almost all the chaos. The remaining chaos must save their friends and defeat Kogg. It is developed for the SNES, PlayStation, and Sega Saturn.

This is also the only game in the series released on the SNES.


The environment in Battle For The Nayborhood is a free roaming stage. With 8 Chaos to play as and 9 Bosses and certain Mini Bosses, the chaos you play as each have their own moves and lines in the game. There are also 8 worlds in the game, where the player must go to and save the chaos infected by Kogg's formula. In the end of a world after beating all the levels there is a boss which a certain chao should battle. The enemies in the game are chaos mutated by the gas and Kogg's army of Lurker Monkeys.


One night, in the Nayborhood, all the chaos are going to bed, waiting for a new day tomorrow. That night, Kogg, a chao banished to the outlands, creates a spore that can mutate chaos. He it pours on the Neverhood, causing almost all the chaos on the island to transform into monsters and brainwashed into working for Kogg.

The next morning, 8 chaos who were immune to the mutating gas woke up to find their friends missing, and set out to find them. But they find out that their friends have been transformed as well. With the help of their Queen Mamuta, the gang of heroes go out and try to save the island. 

After going around the island and save their friends and the other chaos, the 8 heroes go to Kogg's Fortress, where they encounter lots Lurker Monkeys and booby traps. Once the gang encounter Kogg, they engage a fight, leading the chaos the winners. Kogg's Fortress is about to blow any minute due to the destruction of the cloning machine the group destroyed earlier. Kogg gets away and the 8 chaos got on a life boat. With Kogg's plan foiled, all the chaos are turned back and the gang go home to the Nayborhood.
