Tails the Fox

Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic's best friend.

Miles "Tails" Prower is Sonic the Hedgehog's best friend and sidekick. His trademark ability is the ability to fly using his two tails, which can spin in a similar fashion to helicopter blades and propel him upward. He is currently 8 years old and is an ingenious inventor, similar to Sammy Harbors. Tails and Sammy get along fairly well, and are a good match intellectually. Sammy helps Tails and Sonic defeat Dr. Eggman in Sammy's Super Sonic Adventure, which is the novel where Sammy met Sonic and Tails in person in the first place.



As his nickname depicts, Miles is a two-tailed yellow fox. He has blue eyes and gloves with black stripes in front of the cuffs. His shoes are red and white and his chest and stomach are covered by white fur. He has big ears and he has three strands of hair on his forehead. From 1992 to 1999, he had black eyes and was shorter.


Tails, like Sonic, is adventurous and determined. He has a high IQ and is a great inventor. He often wants to prove himself both to Sonic and other people that he is more than just a sidekick, for he wants to be a great hero like Sonic too. Tails is always by Sonic's side, and is always willing to help. He really looks up to Sonic as if Sonic was his big brother.
