Tag Archive: Miles “Tails” Prower


Because I play so many games, I encounter a large number and wide variety of game characters. However, I would have to say that my favorite character is one that has been with me for a long time. The character to whom I am referring was in fact introduced in my first video game, Sonic 2. That’s right, I am an avid fan of Sonic the Hedgehogs two-tailed companion, Miles “Tails” Prower.

Although continually playing second fiddle to the blue blur, this orange fox is highly intelligent and highly capable. When Sonic is in need, Tails flies in to save the day, literally and figuratively. Tails sometimes just carries Sonic directly, but when necessary he breaks out the Tornado, which is awesome in and of itself.

But I digress. The other major reason I love Tails is the possibility of Super Tails that exists in the combination of Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles. After arduously collecting not just the seven chaos emeralds but also the seven additional super emeralds, Tails transforms from his usual self into a flying Juggernaut of destruction. More on Super Tails can be found in my Salute to Super Tails.

A Salute to Super Tails

This is Miles “Tails” Prower, the oft maligned sidekick of Sonic the Hedgehog. I have long had an affinity for Tails as he is geeky and orange. However, Tails is also much more; he can become super tails. Although it takes as much to get Super Tails as it does Hyper Sonic, the results are worth it…and devastating to your enemies.

Yes, this is Super Tails complete with a quartet of Super Flickies to crush your enemies. In addition to the Flikies, Super Tails is significantly faster than ordinary Tails, but doesn’t jump any higher (which doesn’t really matter because Tails can still fly. )

To get Super Tails, you must be playing Sonic 3 connected to Sonic & Knuckles and complete all 14 special stages for the complete collection of super emeralds. After that, all you need is to collect 50 rings, double jump and watch your enemies be destroyed.
