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.
