Chaotic is an American-Canadian animated fantasy television series produced by 4Kids Entertainment and animated by Bardel Entertainment for Season 1 and Dong Woo Animation for Season 2-3. It is based on the Danish trading card game of the same name. Much of the plot is based on the original storyline of the Danish trading card game.


Chaotic tells the tale of a teenage boy named Tom and his friend Kaz. They both play the Chaotic Trading Card/Online Game. Kaz always tries to tell Tom about a secret code to play for real which Tom refuses to believe. While playing online Tom receives the special password. When he enters the password into his game scanner he is transported to a place called Chaotic that is able to take him to another world where the characters, locations and items in the card game came to life.

There are two parts to the Chaotic world, Chaotic itself and Perim. Chaotic is where the people play an advanced version of the card/online game where they transform into the creatures. The games can be watched via monitor by other players.

The second part is Perim. In Perim the creatures, locations and items from the game are real. Players from the Chaotic game can teleport into Perim and scan the locations, creatures and items with their scanners, gaining the ability to use them in their game. There are four tribes in Perim. Two tribes, the Overworld and the Underworld, have been at war over a great power called the Cothica. Despite their names, there is no definite Good and evil tribe, as both have different stories and interpretations of how the war began, with each tribe seeing the other as being evil. The Danians and Mipedians have since joined the war, turning it into a four-way conflict over the Cothica. It is said that the Mipedians were once united with the Overworlders and the Danians united with the Underworlders. It is still unknown why they separated.

Both Chaotic and Perim are made up of a mysterious code called the "Chaotic Code". The code is noted for constantly changing in random ways. Thus, it is considered "chaotic." In Perim, the Chaotic Code describes everything. It contains the information for all the creatures, BattleGear, attacks, Mugic, and locations. The Cothica, mentioned above, is the source of all the codes in Perim. The code also describes everything in Chaotic. The BattleDromes, Transporters, and CodeScanners can analyze and/or modify this code for matches, transport, or creation of virtual cards.

When the players are in Chaotic/Perim they exist simultaneously on Earth. When a Chaotic player leaves Chaotic they become one person again and the Earth version of the player gains the memories of anything they experienced in the Chaotic/Perim world. This is awkward the first time they transport, as their online deck is blocked so that their Chaotic self can use it and their scanner becomes non functional, causing many people to believe they have broken their scanners until they are re-united with their Chaotic self.


A short preview was shown on 4Kids TV on September 30, 2006 at 10:30 am (ET).[2] The show officially premiered on October 7, 2006 at 10:30 AM (ET).[2] 4Kids Entertainment plans to "roll out the storyline over seven years", implying there were seven seasons planned for the television series. [3] A second season, called Chaotic: M'arillian Invasion, aired began airing in September 2008 on 4Kids TV.[4] While season 1 used flash animation, the M'arillian Invasion season is animated in traditional animation. Jetix (US) bought the cable rights to the show and began airing it daily at 7 AM October 1, 2007. The Secrets of Lost City season is animated in traditional animation, like the previous season.

Digital cable providers Comcast Cable, Cox Communications and Bresnan Communications premiered four new episodes in February 2008 on 4KidsTV's Video On Demand.

Teletoon and The CW4Kids air most of the premiere episodes for their respective countries. The CW4Kids premieres began in February 2009 with M'arillian Invasion episode 14, while Teletoon began airing the second season in January 2009.[5] Cartoon Network took over premieres for the final seven M'arrillian Invasion episodes in the US in August 2009, but The CW4Kids regained the premieres when the third series- Secrets of the Lost City started on Halloween 2009. Toon Disney aired the show on Jetix.[6][7] On February 13, 2009, Jetix along with Toon Disney merged into a new network called Disney XD (a new channel similar in scope to Jetix). The Jetix brand no longer exists in the United States, but series 1, the original Chaotic, continued to air on Disney XD.[8] Cartoon Network acquired the rights for the second and third seasons and began airing them and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's in June 2009.[9] By airing the second season straight through, CN was able to premiere episodes before CW4Kids. The series finale aired on March 13, 2010, but the show continued to air on Cartoon Network and Disney XD until 2011.

In January 2009, the first season of Chaotic was shown daily on Jetix in both Ireland and the United Kingdom.[10]
