Tashiya (タシヤ?) are a brand of enemies that appear exclusively in the Tails' Skypatrol video game available for the Sega Game Gear.


Based off of octopuses, Tashiyas are bright-pink octopus-like robots with a screw knob on their neck. They also have their own blue and white circus ball.


In gameplay, Tashiya robots will waddle around on the ground, trying to balance on their circus balls. They have no offense to attack the player with, though they can be in the player's way in small route sections. They are worth four hundred points when destroyed, and appear only in the DarkCastle Area.


  • Despite the reputation Tails' Skypatrol has received, Sonic Tweet had made cards with character sprites from Tails Skypatrol. Tashiya was on one of the cards.
  • The Tashiyas have a strong resemblance to Octus
