If these readings are accurate, he's here! I've found him! I just hope I'm not too late.

— Tails, Sonic the Hedgehog (film)

Tails is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog film series produced by Paramount Pictures. He is an anthropomorphic and two-tailed alien fox who is looking for Sonic the Hedgehog.


Tails is a young, anthropomorphic fox cub with two tails instead of one; however, it is shown that they can join together to form a single tail when he is not flying. He has mostly amber fur with white fur around his muzzle, front torso, and the tips of his tails. He also has sky blue eyes, triangular ears with white canals and three locks of hair on his forehead.

For attire, Tails wears white gloves with a light blue band around each wrist, and shoes that are red from the heel to the middle and white from the middle to the toe with gray soles. In the first film, each shoe is lined with a gray strip around the ankle that is fastened by a small gold buckle. In the second film, the shoes each have red laces and gray wiring around them, and the ankle strips are absent.

Coming to Earth, Tails appeared from a Ring portal near Green Hills, having apparently tracked Sonic to the area. He subsequently took off to find him, hoping that he was not too late.

Powers and abilities

Tails is able to achieve flight by splitting his tails and spinning them like helicopter rotors. He is shown to be able to fly at considerable speed, clearing a forest area within seconds. He is also an adept pilot, being able to fly the Tornado and maneuver it through missile fire.[3]

  • Tails is the only character in the Sonic the Hedgehog film to be portrayed by the same English, Japanese, and French voice actors as his video game counterpart, though Colleen O'Shaughnessey was initially uncredited in the English version.
    • O'Shaughnessey was later credited in the digital version of the film, albeit with her name spelled incorrectly.
    • In Italian, Tails shares this distinction with Sonic.
