Tails' Workshop[1] is a location that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a large building next to Tails' House on Seaside Coast and is the working quarters of Miles "Tails" Prower where he builds the inventions furnishing his mind to not only give his team an edge but also make life easier.


Tails Workshop interior

The interior of Tails' workshop.

Tails' Workshop is a two-story tall, rectangular wooden barn with a curved black tin roof. It has several entrances, including sliding doors and a first-story door on the font and doorways on the side, each with a tin overhang. These doors were clearly built for people around the height of Tails and his friends, as Dr. Eggman has to bend over in order to fit through them. On the side is what appears to be a garage. On top of the roof is a platform with a large windmill and a chimney. Supposedly, the workshop also has a defense system consisting of cages and lasers.

The interior of Tails' Workshop houses a number of things, including a workbench, a forge, shelves with different mechanical parts and video games, panels with tools, a dryer, an industrial strength lab kiln, and a small toilet. It also sometimes hosts Tails' Plane.[2][3][4] The workshop also has a security camera for surveillance.[5] Because of all the tools lying around, the workshop can be a pretty dangerous place.[6]


TV series

Season one


Eggman bothering Tails in his workshop.

While occasionally tinkering in his workshop, Tails would be disturbed by the likes Dr. Eggman when he bunked with him and Buster.[7][8] While testing his Reverse Polarizer with Sonic in his workshop, Orbot came and had Tails reassemble Cubot. Soon after, Sonic and Tails left for Dr. Eggman to stop two Doomsday Devices.[2]

Further trouble arose in Tails' Workshop when one of Tails' robots went berserk. Calling in Sonic, he and Tails subdued it.[9] Tails later retreated to his workshop after nearly killing his team with his faulty Unbolterizer until he got his weapon fixed.[10] While Tails was tinkering with his plane in his workshop later on, Sonic came by for a race after growing bored with the recent peace, only to mess up Tails' papers.[11] In an attempt to help Sticks pick beige berries, Tails went to his workshop and created a berry picking machine with Sonic's help, though the machine quickly went out of control.[12]


Team Sonic analyzing Eggman's tomato sauce.

Having discovered Eggman's Tomato Sauce, Team Sonic would analyze it in Tails' Workshop, but found nothing. The team later came back to have Tails fix their mysteriously malfunctioning electrical appliances, but since Tails had trouble too, they went for lunch instead. While gone, the robot can for Eggman's sauce began turning Tails' machines into robots for Eggman's army, but the plot was foiled by Team Sonic.[13] On a trip to Tails' Workshop, Sonic began creating a terrible noise while running, prompting Tails to examine Sonic in his workshop. Unable to find anything, Tails advised Sonic to not running.[14]

Following Sticks' abduction by a rock monster, the remainder of Team Sonic regrouped at Tails' Workshop after fruitlessly scouring the island for her. There, while Tails was repairing his plane, his Disasterometer picked up Sticks' horrible singing, allowing the group to pinpoint her location for a rescue.[15] Later, Tails, Eggman, Orbot and Cubot retreated to Tails' Workshop when the computer virus Nominatus took control of Eggman's army to destroy the world. Unable to neutralize Nominatus remotely from his workshop, Tails sent Orbot and Cubot into cyberspace where the robot duo managed to destroy Nominatus.[16] Busying himself in his workshop at one point, Tails found Sonic and Knuckles playing with his equipment, though it was cut short when Sonic had to return a book.[3]


Sonic vs Swifty in Tails' Workshop.

Tails later invited Swifty the Shrew to his workshop to hang out, infuriating an envious Sonic. Manipulating Sonic, Swifty challenged him to a race, with loser getting banished from the Village while Team Sonic watched. Disgusted by Swifty, Team Sonic made him leave the workshop.[17] Sonic soon after came to the workshop to complain to Tails over the script for the movie he was helping Eggman with. Tails thus helped Sonic reedit Eggman's script.[18] When tinkering in the workshop later on, Tails detected an Eggman attack and called Team Sonic to arms.[19]

Deducing the origin of an alternate dimension Knuckles, Team Sonic went to Tails' Workshop to find a way to sent the other Knuckles home, whom left to get the solution from Eggman. However, as Knuckles began flickering, Tails concluded in his workshop that having two Knuckles in one dimension would destroy both universes. Getting alternate Knuckles back, along with the equipment they needed, Tails sent him home from his workshop.[20] While later tinkering with his Auto Adjuster 3000 in his workshop, Tails called in Sonic to help find his missing tools.[21]


Tails working in his workshop.

To break the hypnotic suggestions in Justin Beaver's music, Tails took Sonic and Knuckles to his workshop where he made a Measure-o-meter which could help break the mind control at Justin's next concert.[22] Tails later installed a new defense system in his workshop. When Sonic, Knuckles, Perci and Amy entered it to fix Perci's bike however, the defense system malfunction, setting the workshop on fire. Arriving as the fire died down, Tails got its cause cleared up and fixed Perci's bike.[4] Later on, Tails tried busying himself with his inventions in his workshop, only for Knuckles, who had taken up inventing, to annoy him with his harebrained ideas.[23]

Season two

When Tails was in his workshop, Sonic came to vent his frustrations over Tommy Thunder, a method actor following him to study his heroics. However, they soon had to leave to stop a robbery.[24] Later, when an asteroid threatened to hit the planet, Tails worked in his workshop on how to knock the asteroid off its course until he came up with his Solar Convergence Device after seeing Sonic admire his reflection. The workshop also served as Team Sonic's control center when Knuckles went into space to use the SCD. There, the team heard Knuckles shattered the asteroid instead, prompting Sonic to race across Seaside Island to deflect the falling debris.[25]

S2E04 Team Sonic

Team Sonic running experiments in the workshop.

Tails' Workshop was later where Team Sonic remotely coordinated Tails' test of his Ultrasonic Speed Amplifier on Sonic until Sonic vanished into another plane of existence after pushing the device too far. Unable to perceive anyone, Sonic looked for his friends at Tails' Workshop in vain.[26] Tails soon after built a cloning machine in his workshop to form a "brain trust" made up of his clones, but got instead split into five dimwitted clones. Discovering this, Team Sonic brought the clones to the workshop, but made more clones that ran away after they tried merging them. Rounding the clones up in the workshop with Eggman's aid, Team Sonic had Eggman set the cloning machine, allowing them to reassemble Tails.[27]

While working on his latest invention, Tails left his workshop to investigate a nearby explosion caused by Orbot. Orbot then snuck into the workshop unnoticed and stole Tails' invention.[28] Sonic later brought Og to Tails' Workshop so Tails could watch Og. While Tails showed Og around however, he would get annoyed by Og's criticism of his inventions and pass him onto Knuckles.[29] A series of events later led to Tails allowing Knuckles to keep his new lamp in his workshop. Knuckles would thus spent a night over with it in the workshop.[30] Sticks would also come by Tails' Workshop to pick up some gear to help her team and the villagers out of a situation.[31] When Amy later adopted Bea the Bee, Tails would conduct repairs on Bea in his workshop while in the company of his friends whenever Bea got damaged.[32] Soon after, Beth the Shrew came to Tails' Workshop to observe Tails, having won this privilege at the Science Fair Awards. While Tails showed Beth his science projects though, he had to go stop an Eggman attack. Because his workshop was dangerous however, he took Beth with him.[6]

After Knuckles hid some sea bass in the workshop (which attracted wildlife), Tails showed his team his improved Build-it Box there, which made them a new pet. Taming this pet, the team left to save the Village after getting a call. Meanwhile, Eggman came by the workshop to prank Tails. Nominatus, Beta and Retro later emerged from the Build-it Box, but had to travel across the workshop to the machine's controls while menaced by animals to rescale themselves after the machine shrunk them. Upon returning, Team Sonic learned from the workshop's surveillance that Nominatus' gang had subsequently stolen the Build-it Box, prompting the team to investigate this.[5]
