Miles Prower, better known by his nickname, Tails, is an anthropomorphic fox cub born exclusively with two twin-tails, hence his nickname. Because of his abnormality, Tails was the subject of bullying during his youth. One day however, he met Sonic the Hedgehog and was inspired to become as cool as him after seeing him run like the wind. Tails soon after began following Sonic on his adventures and has since become his best friend and sidekick. He is able to use his twin-tails to fly by rotating them like helicopter rotors and is a mechanic genius and aerial pilot. A gentle and sweet-natured soul, Tails was initially timid and lacked courage. After meeting Sonic, however, Tails became more confident about himself, eventually growing up to be a more outgoing, brave and independent individual and a hero in his own right. Since encountering Sonic, Tails has looked up to him and stood by his side, helping him however he can during their adventures.

- "Witch Cart, what are you doing here? I thought I stopped you the first time and why aren't you riding in your- Oh wait... you're her, but you're obviously a witch like her!" - Tails's interaction dialogue with Wicked Witch.

- Most of Tails' abilities came from his own spin-off game called Tails Adventure (a prequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 2), which was released on Game Gear in 1995.
- Like Sonic and Knuckles, Tails will die like he does in the Classic games; facing the camera, arms and legs straight out, and a surprised look on his face while falling in front of all the art (or in this game, phasing right through the ground.)
- Tails' possession of two tails is derived from the mythological kitsune (Japanese for "Fox") from common Japanese folklore. The kitsune is said to be capable of growing multiple tails - nine tails at maximum - with it being said that the more tails it has, the more old, wise and powerful it is.
- The name "Miles Prower" is a pun on "miles per hour", a reference to the famed speed of the Sonic the Hedgehog series.
- Tails' outstanding speed is partially due to his training with Sonic.
- Tails and Sonic share a trait of being rather impatient. No other characters except sometimes Amy, ever act impatient as Tails and Sonic are always going fast when after Eggman.
- The only Sonic animated adaptation Tails was absent from was Sonic Underground.
- The September 2010 issue of GameInformer magazine elected Tails as the 10th "Most Disgustingly Cute" Video Game Character.
- Nintendo Power magazine had a poll asking which sidekick people would choose, with Tails being the second most picked.
- Tails has the most voice actors out of all of the characters, with nine English voice actors (counting his TV show and movie appearances). Often times, Tails was cast with young boy voice actors to provide a genuine youthful male voice for the role, although this would always cause the need to recast him once the voice actor's voice matured too far to continuing voicing him. In recent years, Tails has been voiced by females, in order to avoid the aforementioned issue.
- Tails is voiced by Colleen O'Shaugnessey, who voices the role in the Sonic Boom animated series and all games released since 2014.
- Despite being a fox, Tails has been mistaken for a squirrel; during Nintendo Power's run, the magazine would occasionally refer to Tails as a squirrel, although typically for humorous purposes.
