Tails was designed for the sequel to the original Sonic video game in the 1990s. In fact, he was the winner of a design contest to develop a sidekick for Sonic and was named "Best New Character" by Electronic Gaming Monthly in 1992.

His legal name, Miles Prower, is a play on the words "miles per hour." Since his debut, Tails has appeared in numerous video games, comics, television cartoons, and films.

Did you know? According to Japanese folklore, kitsune were very intelligent foxes with the ability to shapeshift and become human. They were considered spirits and could have up to nine tails; more tails grew after the kitsune reached 100 years of age. Tails is likely based upon these myths.
