Conception and creation

Tails' Original Design

Yasushi Yamaguchi, originally the main artist and zone designer for Sega's Sonic Team, designed Tails for an internal competition for a sidekick to the speedy hedgehog. Tails was originally intended to be a tanuki, a strikingly raccoon-like canid native to east Asia, and extremely popular in Japanese folklore. The designers decided to change him to a fox, however, to avoid possible comparisons with another popular game character.[4] His entry won, but Sonic Team decided to change his character's name from "Miles" to "Tails".

Yamaguchi ended up with a compromise. He sneaked the name "Miles" in as his legal name; "Tails" would be his nickname, ending up with the full name of Miles "Tails" Prower.


Tails was redesigned (along with all of the other Sonic characters) by Yuji Uekawa for Sonic Adventure. His fur changed color to a slightly orange shade of yellow, and he gained visible blue irises.

In the American Sonic comic book, along with the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons, he was originally a brownish color, but the comic artists eventually decided to change this to match his in-game appearance.

Game appearances

Tails was first seen in Sonic 2 for the Game Gear, where he was kidnapped by Robotnik for ransom. He was first made playable in the Genesis version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, playing the part of Sonic's sidekick. He was a playable character from the second controller and could be chosen as player one for the main game.

Tails has also starred in games without Sonic. His first solo game was Tails' Skypatrol, which is a puzzle-like game for the Game Gear released exclusively in Japan.

In later games, Tails has had roles that require unique modes of play. For example, in Sonic Adventure, Tails is one of the six playable characters[6] and his gameplay is standard platforming stages, but the goal of each stage is to get to the Chaos Emerald before Sonic, or to the missile dud in the final race against Dr. Eggman.

Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog

Tails in AoStH and the SatAM show.

In Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, he is supposedly significantly younger than in the games; he is "only 4 and a half." In the games, he is eight, and the youngest besides Charmy the Bee and Cream the Rabbit. As with the game canon, his real name is Miles Prower.

While Tails is indeed useful to Sonic in many situations, he can be a hindrance. Because he is very young and cannot defend himself, he is incredibly susceptible to kidnappings. Sonic appears to know of this flaw and does his best to protect him, but his protection methods are often the reason why Tails gets kidnapped in the first place. He also seems to have a very large appetite, and like Sonic, his favorite food is chilli dogs, but apparently Tails likes extra cheese on his (in the anime and games, his favourite food is mint candy).[10]


SatAM

Tails' role in the Saturday morning Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon (dubbed SatAM by fans for short) had him in a supporting role, quite low-key compared to the games and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon series.

Tails becomes attracted to and eventually falls in love with Cosmo, a plant-like female alien introduced during this season. The strength of Tails' love is shown in Episode 73, where Shadow, in an attempt to kill Cosmo, clobbers Sonic, Chris, and Knuckles, but, despite his best efforts, can't manage to get past Tails despite severe beating and threatenings, who is determined to protect Cosmo no matter the cost. He had an emotional breakdown when he was forced to kill Cosmo himself to stop the Metarex after which he received a seed from Sonic which was assumed to be the last remaining part of Cosmo.

Personality

Tails is a very sweet-natured[1] and humble fox;[12] who, before he met Sonic, used to be picked on because of his two tails.[2] As a long time friend,[1] he admires Sonic[13] and dreams of being just like him.[14] Though he lacks courage,[2] he wants to prove he can be counted on[15]. He loves mint candy,[16] tinkering with machines, and flying mechas.[2] Tails has a fear of thunder[16] and a tendency to ramble, which can sometimes cause him to annoy others or accidentally blurt out secrets or plans (for example, in Sonic Adventure 2, he tells Eggman that the Chaos Emerald Sonic has is a fake, thus ruining the heroes' plans).


Interaction with other characters

Tails has many friends besides Sonic, and his skills are respected by everyone who knows him. In Sonic Heroes, he is part of Team Sonic, along with Sonic and Knuckles. Tails mostly treats all of his friends the same with a caring yet somewhat passive attitude. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ...

Sonic the Hedgehog

As mentioned above, Sonic is Tails' best friend and always has been. In one of the Sonic the Comic series, Sonic and Tails got into a fight which escalated to a fistfight and almost ended their friendship. They became friends again, and always have been ever since that day.


Dr. Eggman

As with Sonic, Tails finds an enemy and intellectual rival in Doctor Eggman. Tails was especially angered in Sonic Adventure 2 when Sonic was supposedly killed in an explosion, only to be found alive outside Space Colony ARK. This article is about the video game character. ... “SA2” redirects here. ...


Knuckles the Echidna

Tails and Knuckles the Echidna are allies. Knuckles respects Tails' intelligence though he prefers to not hear the rambles of how his technology functions. Knuckles seems to converse more with Tails than he does with Sonic the Hedgehog, though they usually end up irritating each other from time to time. Sonic the Hedgehog comics, see Knuckles the Echidna (comic character). ...


Amy Rose

For the most part, he has a friendly relationship with Amy Rose, though there are times he becomes exasperated and somewhat annoyed by her persistent chasing of Sonic. Amy herself can be quite insulting, intimidating, and outspoken towards Tails, like she is to everyone else if not more so. However, they work together productively and Amy is defensive of him like an older sister type figure. Amy Rose ), once known as Rosy the Rascal, is a video game character who appears in many of the Sonic the Hedgehog series of video games developed by Segas Sonic Team. ...


Wave the Swallow

Tails also finds a canny rival in Wave the Swallow in Sonic Riders. In the game, she insults his Extreme Gear skills to lower his morale (though she was actually impressed by his ingenuity), but her action causes a determined Tails to beat her in a race. At the conclusion of the game, Tails and Wave (supposedly) became friendly rivals with a remaining competitive streak.

Rouge the Bat

On one occasion, Tails received a kiss from Rouge the Bat in Sonic Battle, only as a friendly "Thank you" (this happens if you lose the battle against her in Tails' story). This also happened once in Sonic X during the city tournament, but this was only a way for Rouge to win the match. Tails otherwise seems somewhat intimidated by Rouge, although they are capable of working together for the greater good if needed.

Shadow the Hedgehog

Tails acts as an ally in multiple Hero Missions of Shadow the Hedgehog, and despite Shadow's main interest being Tails' Chaos Emerald, Tails does his part and cheers Shadow on during the Last Story and in Expert Mode.

Cosmo

Tails first met Cosmo in Sonic X. During the time spent on the Blue Typhoon, Cosmo became good friends with the rest of the crew, but most particularly with Tails. During one episode, he falls in love with her. The two of them ended up alone together on a mission at one point, during which their respect for each other was revealed. More romantic feelings came to the surface when they worked together to set up a party for the rest of the crew, and Tails later protected Cosmo when Shadow the Hedgehog targeted her for assassination. Cosmo's attractions to Tails were among the forces that provoked her to sacrifice herself to defeat Dark Oak, and her image appeared to him one last time before she was killed by the Sonic Power Cannon.

Moves and abilities

Tails running and using his two Tails to glide in the air at high speeds.

Like many of the other characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe, Tails can race around at high speeds, which he achieves by propelling himself forward by spinning his tails in a fan-like motion, allowing him to keep up with Sonic's basic cruising speeds in the process. He can also perform different forms of the Spin Attacks.[17] Additionally, Tails also has several unique maneuvers, such as his trademark maneuver in which he can achieve flight by rotating his tails like a helicopter rotor (generating enough lift to keep him and up to two passengers aloft, albeit only briefly before tiring), and can also use his tails for defensive and offensive purposes, since one quick swipe of them packs enough speed and force to slice weeds in two or puncture Eggman's robots, and he was shown using them as makeshift shields when fighting Hawk in the city tournament in Sonic X.[18] He can also swim quite well by dog paddling, which is an ability Sonic never had. Tails was first able to swim in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and the ability has appeared again in Sonic Advance and Sonic Advance 3.[19] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Tails has been described as having mechanical skills that rival or match Dr. Eggman's. With them, he has designed and maintained many vehicles and technologically advanced weapons. Some of his attacks have centered around these devices, such as Dummy Ring bombs. However it has been said that he has yet to realize his full potential.[20]


Like many Sonic characters, Tails can transform into a Super Form, but needs the Super Emeralds instead of the Chaos Emeralds[21]. He also has other transformations in media beside the games (such as Turbo Tails). However, he hasn't appeared in a super form since his "supposed" transformation in Sonic Heroes. His only official transformation was in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. In the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog, Tails is considered to be the slowest character in the game, and he gains more speed by flying only. His attacks are Dummy Ring Bomb and Dummy Ring Snipe.
