In this paper, we show our work on characterizing complex behavior in self-organizing (SOMAS) and non-self-organizing (NonSOMAS) multi-agent systems. Through experiments and analysis, we investigate how Self-Organized Criticality (SOC) phenomena arise in SOMAS rather than in NonSOMAS. Furthermore, we compare the order of agent performance in the two types of systems and explain its implications.
