Miles Prower, more commonly known by his nickname Tails, is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. He is a young anthropomorphic fox that can fly with his twin tails, and Tails' counterpart from another dimension set in the recent past.


Tails is a young, anthropomorphic fox cub with a unique mutation of two tails instead of one. He has mostly amber fur with white fur around his muzzle, front torso, and the tips of his tails. He also has black eyes. His attire consists simply of white gloves and red shoes with white toes. His shoes also have white, sock-like cuffs with light blue belt straps just above the ankles.


Seasons of Chaos

Tails in Spring Valley Zone with his friends, from Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Special.

One day, while Tails, Sonic and Amy roamed Spring Valley Zone, the trio found a Chaos Emerald, but it got snatched in front of them by Metal Sonic. Tails assisted Sonic's attempt to retrieve the Chaos Emerald, but it was for naught. Knuckles soon after showed up and revealed to Tails and the others that Metal Knuckles had one of the Chaos Emeralds too. Deducing that Dr. Eggman was seeking the Chaos Emeralds, Tails, Sonic and Knuckles headed out to secure the remaining gems. Along the way, however, Tails dropped his Emerald Radar. In Summer Falls Zone, Tails and his crew found another Chaos Emerald, only to come under attack by Fang, Bean and Bark, who had been hired by Eggman to find the Chaos Emeralds. During the fight, Tails followed Fang and sabotaged his Marvelous Queen when he went for the Chaos Emerald. Tails then almost managed to escape with the Chaos Emerald, but got hit by Fang's Popgun, thus causing him to drop the Emerald, which ultimately fell down a waterfall. With Tails unsure of how they were going to recover the lost Chaos Emerald, Tails' crew decided to let it be for now and follow Fang's gang to the next one.[1]

In Autumn Forest Zone, Tails began to wonder why Eggman had hired Fang's gang if he already had his Metals out hunting the Chaos Emeralds. Regardless, Tails would soon after help Sonic and Knuckles defeat Eggman in his Egg Mobile when they found him. As Fang's gang then arrived with Amy, Mighty and Ray, Eggman revealed to everyone that Heavy King had taken control of his forces and sent them out to collect Chaos Emeralds. Not wanting Heavy King to possess the Chaos Emeralds, Tails and the others joined forces and headed to Winter Caverns Zone, where Heavy King's base was located. There, while trying to get past Metal Sonic and Metal Knuckles, Tails jumped into the Egg Mobile and began looking for a way to regain control of the Metals remotely. Fortunately, Tails Doll showed up, whom Eggman used to boost a jamming signal that freed the Metals from Heavy King's control. As the united front finally got inside the base, Tails and the others took part in a fight with Heavy King, who used the seven Chaos Emeralds' power against them. In the end though, Tails helped take the Chaos Emeralds away while Sonic distracted Heavy King. Fleeing the base afterward, Tails took the yellow Chaos Emerald for himself when the group decided to split up with the Chaos Emeralds to make it more difficult for Eggman to retrieve the gems. Amy also returned Tails' Emerald Radar to him. Tails then bid Sonic farewell when the latter headed out on his own.[1]

Dr. Eggman's Birthday

Tails and Sonic were later attacked by the Hard Boiled Heavies and their fellow Badniks. However, the robots would be called back to base by Dr. Eggman himself. Along the way, Tails also heard that it was Eggman's birthday.[2]

Amy's New Hobby

One time, Tails and Sonic were out looking for Dr. Eggman's newest base. As they waited for a group Badniks to appear in order to see where they went however, Sonic got stir crazy. As such, when some Badniks did show up, Sonic blasted out from their hiding place and Spin Dashed all of them.[3]

Later, Tails was invited over for lunch by Amy at her house. When Tails arrived, he sat down for a friendly chat with Amy. As he began telling Amy about Sonic's recent escapades however, Tails noticed that Amy was taking notes of something. After Tails had mischievously teased her by suggesting that she was collaborating with Eggman, Amy hesitantly showed him her newest hobby: self-made comic books about their adventures. Impressed by her work, Tails learned that Amy had not showed them to anyone else since she did not think they were good. In response, Tails went out and showed Amy's comics to Mighty and Ray, who thought they were good. Afterward, Tails would nudge Amy towards accepting the positive reception of her work. As Amy's comics attracted a huge gathering, including Sonic, Tails showed Amy's comics to Sonic, who admitted her drawings of him were awesome. Afterward, Tails stood by both Sonic and Amy as the former began telling Amy tales to use for her next comic.[3]


Tails is a kind, helpful, and friendly fox cub. He is polite and loyal towards those he care about, especially his best friend, Sonic. Tails is also very passionate about technology and is easily amazed by outstanding pieces of machinery, sometimes to the point where he temporarily forgets about the current matters at hand.[1]

Powers and abilities

Gifted with a pair of twin tails, Tails can utilize these unique appendages to achieve flight by twirling them around like rotary blades, similar to a helicopter. While in flight, he is also very agile, being able to maneuvering between threats, and can keep up with Sonic at quite high speeds.[1]

Tails also has a genius-level intellect which has allowed him to construct or sabotage many machines and devices. This includes building his own Emerald Radar or throwing off the calibrations of the Marvelous Queen by crossing a few wires after seeing them for the first time.[1]

Tails is also capable of performing the Spin Attack, a technique where he curls into a concussive ball or cutting disk and directs himself at his targets. With it, Tails can shred or burrow through just about any substance given enough speed.[1]
