Tails is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with many other characters who could have been confirmed in the Super Smash Bros. series on September 13, 2019. Ryō Hirohashi (Japanese) and Colleen Villard (English) provide the role for Tails in this fighting game.

Description

Yasushi Yamaguchi, originally the main artist and zone designer for SEGA's Sonic Team, designed Tails for an internal competition for a sidekick to Sonic the Hedgehog. The character was meant to hold a "deep admiration for Sonic". His entry won, but Sonic Team decided to change his character's name from "Miles" to "Tails". Yamaguchi ended up with a compromise. He sneaked the name "Miles" in as his legal name; "Tails" would be his nickname, ending up with the full name of Miles "Tails" Prower which is a pun of the phrase "miles per hour". When Tails was released on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the SEGA Master System and Game Gear, many people mistaken him for a female due to his opening pose, which shows him winking and showing his back.

The character debuted as Sonic's tag-along partner in the franchise's second game, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and has remained an important player since. However the character's uniqueness was not established until Sonic the Hedgehog 3 when players were given the power to control his flying. Tails was redesigned (along with all of the other Sonic characters) by Yuji Uekawa for Sonic Adventure. His fur changed color to a slightly orange shade of yellow, and he gained visible sparkling blue irises. In the American Sonic comic book, along with Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons, he was originally brown, but the comic artists eventually decided to change this to match his in-game appearance.
