Tails Doll is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a robotic toy doll that resembles Tails, created by Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, and a reoccurring foe of the New Freedom Fighters.

Appearance

Newer Tails Doll

The Tails Doll in its monster form.

As its name suggests, Tails Doll resembles a patchwork doll version of Tails. Its most notable feature is the red gem attached to its head by a wire. After absorbing a various materials, it took on a monstrous form bearing little resemblance to its former self, the only recognizable element being the disruptor gem. This new form almost seems to be falling apart, with red grids of circuitry showing up underneath its torn exterior. It has several tentacle-like appendages as well.

History

Past attacks

At some point before being sent after Walter Naugus, the Tails Doll engaged the New Freedom Fighters on at least one occasion, demonstrating the ability to absorb materials from its surroundings and create an armored shell using its control gem.[1]

Countdown to Chaos

Note: From the readers point of view, this picks up from where Tails Doll's original history ended.

The Tails Doll was sent by Eggman to attack Mobotropolis, due to Naugus' prior theft of Eggman's technology. Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails returned home to find the monstrous robot on its rampage. Sonic and Tails battled the monstrous creature, and, after Sonic experienced a brief episode of confusion (in reality due to the Super Genesis Wave), they eventually caused damage through a Rolling Combo, only for it to repair itself using its Control Gem. Fortunately, the pair were eventually able to defeat the monster by plugging Nicole into it, disrupting its programming enough that Sonic was able to smash through its outer shell and remove the plush Tails Doll from within. Snapping off its Control Gem, Sonic then kicked the doll into the distance, crushing the Control Gem underfoot and seemingly putting an end to the threat.[1]

Shattered World Crisis

Infiltrating Egg Mite

Tails Doll boards the Sky Patrol, from Sonic the Hedgehog #267.

Another Tails Doll was subsequently created by Eggman and prepared for use against the Sky Patrol following the defeat of the War Walrus.[2] Later, when the Freedom Fighters were lured into a trap with a Chaos Emerald as bait, the Tails Doll slipped aboard the Sky Patrol while Team Fighters were rushing to the aid of Team Freedom. This placed it in a perfect position to monitor the mobile base's movements for Eggman.[3]

Powers and abilities

Tails Doll possesses a control gem which allows it to absorb raw materials from nearby in order to form its protective outer shell. This barrier proved quite formidable, resisting even Sonic's Spin Dash attack, though it proved vulnerable to a Rolling Combo employed by Sonic and Tails. It was capable of regenerating its armor by absorbing nearby matter, but was apparently unable to affect Nicole in this fashion. In addition, its control gem is able to shoot thin red lasers and can detect any activity that might affect its systems.

Trivia

  • Tails Doll is based off the same character from Sonic R.
  • Many people make up violent stories about Tails Doll on the Internet. His scary nature appears to be reflected by its transformation into a monstrous being. Various characters and in-story title cards have as well referred to it as "creepy."
