The Mandalorian has been out for as long as Disney Plus and everyone is gushing over Baby Yoda. Although even the most hardcore Star Wars fans among us don’t know the exact name of Yoda’s species, Baby Yoda has captured our hearts with its Force of Cuteness.
For those who are smitten by cute things every time we pass by them, there are childlike video game characters who are just as cute as Baby Yoda, if not more so. Here are a few cute babies he might get along with on a play date.
Chao (Sonic the Hedgehog)
An evolution of the Artificial Life (A-Life) system Sonic Team originally created in NiGHTS into Dreams (AKA Nightopians), the Chao have been adored by Sonic fans the world over for their immeasurable cuteness since Sonic Adventure.
The Chao Garden in both Sonic Adventure games allowed them to feed, breed and raise the little Hershey’s Kiss heads for the Chao games.
They loved and cared for the Chao in the Adventure games so much that they got enraged when the Chao Garden was no longer a feature in games beyond Sonic Adventure 2.
Some fans have petitioned Sonic Team to bring back the Chao Garden in future Sonic games, but the closest we got are the cuties’ cameos in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series and a fan-made PC game called Chao Resort Island, which is the 2D version of the Chao Garden.
