Tails Doll (テイルス・ドール Teirusudōru?) (also mistakenly called Puppet Tails or Tails Puppet) is a doll version of Tails built by Dr. Robotnik. He is comparable to Tails in the same way that Metal Sonic is comparable to Sonic. The Tails Doll has a metal rod protruding out of the top of its head that leads to a red gem that seems to control the robot's movements. The Tails Doll appeared only in Sonic R, as an unlockable character on the Radical City course by collecting five Sonic Tokens, finishing in at least third, then beating him in a race.

Tails Doll has poor handling, average acceleration and average top speed. He is the slowest character in the game, but he can glide over water like most of his metal allies, and he has a strange floating ability as his "air action", allowing him to remain airborne longer than Tails can.

Tails Doll is infamous for his "scary profile" among Sonic fans, as countless memes have expressed this. In fact, in the Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comics, he is portrayed as a killer-cuddly-doll.

Profile

Sonic Channel provided at one time Sonic R's profile descriptions for each of the characters. The following is the information provided for Tails Doll:

As a last resort, Eggman manufactured this to catch Sonic unprepared. This, except for the power plant embedded in its head, is a mere stuffed animal, whose meager form nevertheless exhibits considerable ability in races due to its lightweight design. Still, it is also able to float in the air for a long time.

The Tails Doll makes an appearance in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. Also known as "Project Deadly Cuddles," was it a robot sent into New Mobotropolis by Dr. Eggman. It is first shown lying alone on a rock amongst some wreckage and picked up by Cream the Rabbit during Titan Metal Sonic's assault on the city. Cream saw the doll and assumed that it had an owner who dropped it in the assault, and so took it with her in an attempt to find whoever owned it, unaware that it was sent by Eggman. The Tails Doll acted as both a spy and saboteur for Eggman as it was able to disrupt nanites which it did so in an attempt to kill Mina, and also allow Metal Sonic to bypass the city shield.

The Tails Doll has also exhibited two transformations, the first one which makes it huge, gives it claws, glowing eyes, and a mouthful of sharp teeth, and the second transforming it into some kind of eldritch abomination.
