- This article pertains to the Badnik version of Miles "Tails" Prower; if you are looking for information on the robian version of Tails, see Mecha Tails.
Dr. Eggman unveiled Metal Tails to his Dark Egg Legion Grandmasters along with the rest of the Metal Series. He, along with the rest of the Metal Series, served as Dr. Eggman's new enforcers following the betrayal of Snively. (SU: #37)
Debut of Team Metal
During the invasion of New Mobotropolis, Eggman deployed Metal Sonic, Metal Amy and Metal Tails to attack the city when his Egg Swat army was being destroyed by Team Freedom. Metal Tails flew down to attack Rotor, but Elias shot an arrow through his back to stop his tail movement. Rotor then proceeded to shoot Metal Tails with beams from his battle suit, causing Metal Tails to explode. (StH: #240)
Metal Tails AI is limited, and it is designed to follow the orders of Metal Sonic.
Metal Tails is capable of flight, and has a rotor designed to mimic Tails' fox brushes. However, this rotor is vulnerable in that it can be jammed, thus leaving Metal Tails grounded and vulnerable.
- Metal Tails has no direct game counterpart, as no robotic version of Tails-other than Tails Doll-has appeared in any Sonic game. However, a cheat featured in the Sonic Heroes game allows the player to give the members of his team metallic skins, so the "Metal" variant of Tails from the game could be considered a counterpart to Metal Tails.
