— Ali Baba, Sonic and the Secret Rings

Ali Baba (アリババ Ari Baba?) is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is an anthropomorphic fox cub and the alternate reality doppelgänger of Miles "Tails" Prower from the world of the Arabian Nights, wherein he is the main character of the Arabian Nights tale "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves".


Ali Baba is essentially a doppelgänger of his mainstream counterpart. As such, he is a young, anthropomorphic fox cub with a unique genetic mutation giving him two tails instead of one. He has mostly amber fur with white fur around his muzzle with cheek tufts, front torso with fluffy fur on top of his chest, and the tips of his tails. He also has sky-blue eyes, large triangular ears with white canals on top of his head, a small black nose, and three locks of hair on his forehead.

For attire, he wears a white turban and a red vest with purple and yellow trim. His gloves are white, with a silver bracelet around each wrist. On the middle figure of his left hand, he dons a golden ring. Ali Baba’s shoes are red from the heel to the middle and white from the middle to the toe with gray soles, each with a gray band around the ankle.


Sonic and the Secret Rings[]

In Sonic and the Secret Rings, Ali Baba met Sonic in the Sand Oasis after being rescued from the minions of the 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.

In the end, he had gone on many travels with Sonic and Sinbad until the former returned to his world.


Ali Baba is a friendly person who seems to take a liking to Sonic, possibly due to the real-life Tails's relationship with the hero. He appears to dislike arguing, even willing to come between Sonic and the famous Sinbad to calm them down. The fox shows some intelligence as well, displaying a knack for problem solving when discussing how to stop the Ifrit Golem.

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.
