The Miles Electric is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a multifunctional handheld device created by Miles "Tails" Prower.



The Miles Electric's appearance is that of a wide yellow rectangle with two cyan-glowing antennas on top, round corners, a touchscreen in the middle and some directional pads beside the screen. It also has one handle on the right side.

Features and traits

The Miles Electric is capable of extracting and storing computer data. It also comes with customized universal wifi accessibility, which allows it to instantly hook up to any computer.[1] The Miles Electric also has a built-in hologram projector[2] signal tracking sensors,[3] and a video communication feature.[4]


The Fate of Dr. Eggman

When stumbling upon a Egg Fleet battleship in the sky during their mission to find information on who was commanding the Badnik horde, Tails handed the Miles Electric to Sonic after instructing him to board the battleship and download data from the first computer that he could find. Unfortunately, this plan was forgotten when Sonic was forced to flee the battleship following a battle with Neo Metal Sonic and some Egg Pawns.[1]

All or Nothing

When Sonic was explaining the characteristics and traits of each member of the Deadly Six to his allies on Angel Island, Tails used the Miles Electric to showcase the appearance of each of the Zeti talked about.[2]

Out of the Blue

When Dr. Eggman attacked Spiral Hill Village, Tails used the Miles Electric to write a code that, when uploaded into the Giga Omega mecha Eggman was using, would release Gemerl from inside Giga Omega. With the help of Rouge, he managed to find the back panel on Giga Omega and hook the Miles Electric up to it, which resulted in Gemerl being ejected from the mecha.[5]

Chao Races and Badnik Bases

For the task of rebuilding Omega, Tails downloaded Dr. Eggman's personal blueprints to his Miles Electric, which Rouge had given him. However, he could not read them because they were encrypted. He and Sonic subsequently took the Miles Electric to an abandoned Eggman base nearby Windmill Village to connect to Eggnet and decipher the blueprints. While there, Sonic used the Miles Electric to illuminate the dark corridors.[6] Tails later tried to break through the Eggnet's firewall using the Miles Electric, but the work proved arduous. When Belle then appeared, Tails left his Miles Electric for a while, causing the base's alarm to go off. Tails tried then to get back to his work on the firewall, but to no avail.[7] After escaping the base, Tails got a message on his Miles Electric from Rouge who needed Sonic and Tails' aid in White Park Zone.[8] Belle later used the Miles Electric to read Omega's blueprints for the repairs of Omega. Afterward, when Tails studied his Miles Electric, he realizing that if Belle could read Eggman's encrypted files flawlessly, it must mean that she had been made by him.[9]

Test Run!

While stuck inside Dr. Eggman's space-circumenting test chambers for robots, Tails used the Miles Electric to examine things they came across, such as test dummies and strange sounds. Soon after, in an effort to escape the test chambers, Tails began calibrating the Miles Electric's sensors to track the local Badniks' comm signals back to their source.[9]

Zeti Hunt

When the Deadly Six attacked Restoration HQ, Tails used his Miles Electric to inform Sonic about the attack.[4] After the Deadly Six had been dealt with, Tails contacted Jewel through his Miles Electric to get an update on recent events.[10]

Trial by Fire

During an experiment to render Badniks docile, Belle hooked Motobud up to a Miles Electric. With it, she was able to isolate Motobud's nonaggression subroutine and then transfer it wirelessly over to nearby Badniks, which resulted in said Badniks exhibiting peaceful mannerisms.[11]
