Concept and CreationEdit
Tails' attire was meant to emphasize his role as the "gadget guy" of the team. He received a belt to "really show" his gadgets and aviator goggles to reinforce that he was the team's pilot as well.
The sports tape tails wears is inspired by fighters and American football players and is meant to give him a sense of practical heroism by showing that that he is not vain, which is a trait more fitting for villains, when saving the world and to give him a more grounded approach.
Among the main characters, Tails been redesigned the least compared to his game counterpart, except that he stands a little taller. He wears a pair of goggles on his head, wears a work belt that also straps around his shoulder and has bandages around his shoes similar to Sonic. His gloves appear to be work or miner's gloves instead of the standard cloth gloves.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Gifted with a pair of twin-tails, Tails can utilize these unique appendages to achieve flight by twirling his twin tails around like rotary blades. This way, Tails is able to lift himself off the ground and fly around in mid-air like a helicopter. He is also an ingenious inventor and an expert air pilot.
Tails is the best friend of Sonic the Hedgehog and he has a brotherly relationship with him. However, he is not afraid to tell Sonic that he is wrong whenever that happens.
- The promotional artwork for Tails is the second artwork of him depicting him holding a wrench; the first being in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood.
