Nezus in Tails Adventure are recurring enemies featured in Volcanic Tunnel, Cavern Island and Polly Mountain 2. They usually stand still in one spot, but they start moving once Tails gets close. They do not start moving if Tails flies over them though. As they move towards Tails, they will stop and place tiny a bomb on the path right in front of Tails before retreating back to their previous position.

WHile posing litte threat to Tails himself, many Nezus can be placed in tricky sections or inside narrow tunnels which only Remote Robot can access. The player can destroy the Nezus using only one hit with any type of weapon in the game. They are also easily defeated by flying over them and dropping bombs down on them or throw bombs at them from afar, as they do not start moving towards the player if Tails does not get close enough. Defeating one can also sometimes cause a Ring to be dropped for the player to collect.

Powers and abilities

Nezus possess an endless supply of tiny bombs which they can deploy.


  • The Nezus' name is derived from "Nezumi" (?), which is Japanese for "mouse".
