Tails is a yellow, childish anthromorphic fox from the Sonic the Hedgehog series known for using his tails to fly in a helicopter-esque manner. He is one of the most reoccuring Sonic characters, only being absent from Sonic 1, CD, and Sonic and Knuckles in games of the main seriies.

Tails first met Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Tails, ever since he was a pup, dreamed of one day being like Sonic. At that point, he gained courage and decided to join Sonic along in all of his glorious adventures to stop Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik and his murderous battleship, the Death Egg.

Tails has gained more courage and athleticty over the years, but he still has very child-like qualities as shown by many recent games. His IQ has also appeared to grown to phenomenial heights since 1992.

Tails gets generaly very mixed reception on NR. Some, Sonic for example, really like the guy but others like Popcikle hate him because he think he's just too annoying. Only time will tell.

Winter 2008 ContestEdit

Tails will end up fighting Ranulf in round 1. Knowing all the people that support FireEmblem Rocket, I personally don't expect good things...
