Miles "Tails" Prower and Tangle the Lemur, Sonic the Hedgehog #21

The Cyclone is a vehicle that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a transforming mech created and piloted by Miles "Tails" Prower.



The Cyclone is single seat mech walker with a blue and yellow color scheme. It has small cannons behind the seat and on the front. The heels of the legs contain small wheels can be used for high speed when in it's car mode. Additionally, the Cyclone also contains a rocket engine on the rear.

Features and abilities

The Cyclone is a bipedal mech suited for combat. It is capable of firing destructive blast from it's cannons. The Cyclone is also notable for being capable of transforming into car mode in which the legs flatten to make use of its wheels, allowing it to move at high speeds using the rocket engine on the back.


The Last Minute

In an attempt to find a cure for the Metal Virus, Tails - accompanied by Tangle and Whisper - headed to his lab in Central City to analyze the virus and how Sonic's speed affects it. Upon arrival, they discovered that the city was the latest target of the Metal Virus' infection, with the citizens of the city being exposed to the virus as it was dumped from Doctor Eggman's Faceship.[1]

Whilst Tangle and Whisper escorted the uninfected civilians to safety, Tails worked in the lab to find a cure. However, just as he was successful, the lab came under attack by Zombots and quickly became overrun, with Tails losing all the data he had gathered in the process. Tails headed towards the lab's garage and boarded the Cyclone to make his escape. Using the mech's car mode, Tails drove through the streets of the city towards the docks where a Restoration Rescue Shuttle was scheduled to arrive to escort the survivors to safety.[1]

Upon rendezvousing with Tangle and Whisper at the docks, Tails used the Cyclone's arsenal to provide cover for two as they helped the survivors board the ship. Despite the Cyclone's might, the Zombot horde proved too great in number and swarmed the mech, clawing and damaging it. With all the survivors safely aboard the ship, Tails had no choice but to abandon the Cyclone to the Zombot masses, thanking the trusty mech for its help before it exploded.[1]
