— Ali Baba, Sonic and the Secret Rings

Ali Baba (アリババ Aribaba?) is a character that appears in Sonic and the Secret Rings. He is an anthropomorphic fox cub and the alternate reality doppelgänger of Miles "Tails" Prower from the world of the Arabian Nights.


Sonic and the Secret Rings

Ali Baba is first encountered in the Sand Oasis after being rescued from the minions of Erazor Djinn. He is later seen again after Erazor Djinn summons an Ifrit and announces that Sonic only has half of his life energy left. They go to Ali Baba where he explains that his friend Sinbad may be able to help them. He is seen again when Sonic and Sinbad are fighting and questions the ability to gather enough water to put out a fire genie.

At the end, he had apparently gone on many travels with Sonic and Sinbad until Sonic returned back to his world.

Powers and abilities

Like his alternate counterpart, Ali Baba possesses a genetic abnormality that has granted him two large, fluffy tails. By spinning his two tails around like rotary blades on a helicopter, Ali Baba can achieve flight, allowing him to move through midair.

  • "The problem is, where are we going to get ENOUGH water to put out a fire genie, right?" -Ali Baba when Sonic insults Sinbad's idea for the Ifrit.
