“I can do it!”
Tails, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Miles Prower, who is better known by the nickname of Tails, is a flying, two-tailed yellow fox from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. He is the sidekick and best friend of Sonic. Tails has the ability to spin his tails like a propeller, and thus fly. In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, he is voiced by Amy Palant, but in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and onwards, he has been voiced by Kate Higgins. "Miles Prower", is a pun on "miles per hour".

History[edit]

Mario & Sonic series[edit]

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games[edit]

Tails participates in Olympic events in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. He is a Skill type player, with skill and stamina being his best stats. Ironically, he is quite slow in this game, while he is quite speedy in the Sonic games.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games[edit]

Again, Tails participates in the Olympic events, this time in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, the sequel. Tails is a Skill type player again. His stats are given on the official site as well.

Tails made an appearance in the adventure mode of the game for the Nintendo DS. In the game, he decides to help Sonic and Mario on their quest. Tails even makes remarks about Mario when he and Sonic first meets the fox, thus showing that Tails respects Mario due to his heroism (similar to how he respects Sonic).

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games[edit]

In the third installment of the Mario & Sonic series, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Tails makes another appearance as a playable character. He is a Skill type player in the Wii version like the two previous installments and is part of the Heroes in the 3DS version.

This is the first game in the series to introduce Kate Higgins as the new voice actress of Tails (who takes over from Amy Palant).

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games[edit]

Tails appears in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Like previous games in the series, Tails is a playable Skill type character.

Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games[edit]

Tails returns in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games as once again a Skill type. In the Nintendo 3DS version he's exclusive to 100m Freestyle and Beach Volleyball.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Tails appears in the background of the Green Hill Zone stage, as a cameo. He can occasionally be seen running through the loop in the background, alongside fellow Sonic characters, Knuckles the Echidna and Silver the Hedgehog. Tails also appears in the form of a collectible Trophy and Sticker.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

Tails reprises his role from Super Smash Bros. Brawl in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, running in the background of Green Hill Zone, along with Knuckles the Echidna and Silver the Hedgehog. Tails makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U as a Trophy in both versions of the game. An outfit based off Tails' appears as an outfit for Mii Gunners in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. It has been released in February 2016, alongside a Knuckles outfit.
