Tails' Workshop[2] is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the home of Miles "Tails" Prower, and where the fox cub conducts his various projects.


Tails' Workshop is a quaint purplish-gray stone brick house with a brown roof and a fundament that it sits on. Its main building consists of a typical house section with another one behind that sits along the length. The house has two stories, with dormers on the roof; one dormer in particular on the front house section resembles a fox ear, namely in the way it points towards the front side of Tails' Workshop. Also, on the front of the workshop is a rounded and brown front door with a similar window on each side, as well as a window in the corner of the roof. Also, a wooden beam carrying a lamp protrudes from above the front door.

On the side of the workshop is a running waterwheel with various gears and bolts next to it. Also, behind the workshop is a stone silo with green creepers sporting yellow flowers on it. Inside the workshop are various advanced devices used by Tails.



While working on the Tornado in his workshop, Tails received a letter that came out of nowhere, which foreshadowed Dr. Eggman's return. This prompted Tails to seek out Sonic.[3]

Sonic later came to Tails' Workshop to after he had been infected with the Metal Virus. While Tails tested Sonic, Tangle came to tell them about her latest adventure. While Tangle waited for her friends to finish, Tails concluded that Sonic could not infect inorganic matter and that he had driven the virus into remission with his speed. Sonic then told a curious Tangle about Eggman's recent activities. As Tails then realized that they had to warn everyone about the Zombots to avoid attacks like those on Spiral Hill Village, Tangle told her friends her stories. Afterward, the heroes' went over their next course of action: find the Faceship Eggman planned to distribute the Metal Virus with. However, Sonic soon noticed that his infection had resurfaced, and Tails realize that Sonic could only keep it in check. Before Tails could run more tests though, Sonic left to find Eggman's Faceship. Tangle, however, assured Tails that he could find a cure.[2]

Tangle & Whisper

Tangle came by Tails' Workshop with Whisper the Wolf and the captive Mimic; they wished for Tails to create a device that would act as a cell for him. Tails built the Test Chamber, a contraption could run models through all sorts of artificial climate and atmospheric conditions, rendering Mimic's escape impossible. Mimic still claimed that he would escape but Tangle and Whisper warned him against doing so. Tails promised the girls that he would have the cell transported to the nearest jail as soon as he could. Following this, Tails said his goodbyes to the girls as they left his workshop.[4]
