Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog 2


Tails (Miles “Tails” Power) originally appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. He has appeared on some LGBT video game character lists. Though debated, there is no conclusive evidence that his relationship with Sonic is anything more than platonic. His potential homosexuality is tied to his effeminacy and the fact that Tails is said to have “a deep admiration for Sonic.”
