The Sea Fox (or Sea Tail (シーテイル Shī Teiru?) in Japanese) is a one-person multipurpose submarine used, presumably designed and built by Miles "Tails" Prower, which was first featured in Sonic Triple Trouble. The Sea Fox has also been later featured as major component of Tails Adventure.
Sea Fox is rather small submarine with blue and orange color scheme. with a drill bit mounted on the front. Its shades of the craft's design can be seen in many of Tails' later vehicular inventions. It has three wings, two being each side aiming for horizontal direction and one at bottom. It has also two torpedo launchers on each side. It has round glass cover above the cockpit as the inside of Sea Fox's cockpit has purple seat. It can move with single propeller on its back.
Sonic Triple TroubleEdit
Sea Fox first appears in Sonic Triple Trouble as can be featured at underwater sections of Tidal Plant Zone. The Sea Fox pops out of item boxes in Tidal Plant Zone for Tails (whereas Sonic, on hitting the same boxes, gets his Propeller Shoes). The submarine's hull is curved in this iteration, and it has a built-in torpedo launcher on the front, which makes dealing with the boss significantly easier.
In Tails Adventure, the Sea Fox transforms into (or out of, depending on your point of view) Tails' Remote Robot in a technological marvel of folding miniaturization. Somewhat more angular than the Triple Trouble version, the Sea Fox can now be equipped with a variety of upgrades scavenged from the invading Battle Kukku Army, including mines, extra armor, and a rocket booster that enables the sub to take to the skies. Tails even has his own submarine lab to outfit the vehicle during this game; attached to his house on the south shore of Cocoa Island.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
The Sea Fox also appeared in the Sonic the Hedgehog series published by Archie Comics. In this continuity, it was built by Rotor Walrus. He took out the oil in it and gave it to Tails so he can play in it. Tails then took the oil off of a oil-soaked seagull and then it started running.
