The '''Tails Doll''' (also mistakenly called '''Puppet Tails''' or '''Tails Puppet''') is a character in the racing game ''Sonic R'' for the Sega Saturn, seemingly intended as a robotic counterpart to Miles "Tails" Prower in the same vein as [[Metal Sonic]], but came across as very strange and creepy due to the fact that it was a "doll" instead of an actual robot and was about to levitate and move on its own.
The Tails Doll would also later reappear in the ''Archie Sonic the Hedgehog'' comics as a secondary antagonist during the "Fall of the Freedom Fighters" story arc, acting as a spy and saboteur for [[Dr. Eggman (Archie Comics)|Dr. Eggman]] with supernatural abilities.

Tails Doll appears to be a crudely stitched doll of Tails, with all the mechanical components hidden inside. Tails Doll has an antenna on its head bearing a gem, presumably intended to control the robot remotely.
The Tails Doll in the ''Archie Sonic'' comics is capable of dramatically altering it's appearance through transformation and it's represented in cyberspace as a large disembodied head of itself.
==Powers and Abilities==
In ''Sonic R'', Tails Doll is intended for racing rather than fighting unlike Metal Sonic, and presumably carries no weaponry. Its light weight allows it to float over the ground, bypassing some obstacles.
However, in the ''Archie Comics'', the Tails Doll is shown to have somewhat supernatural abilities despite being created by Eggman. Its power comes from the Gem connected to its head and uses this to interfere with technology as shown when it uses this to disable the New Mobotropolis shields in the comics, allowing Metal Sonic to break in to the City and cause chaos. It can also fire lasers from the gem to attack targets directly. Additionally, It can absorb all surrounding matter and use this to regenerate its armor and form an outer shell which can resist attacks. It can also absorb matter to transform into a giant horrific monster to become more powerful and destructive.

*It also appears in the video game ''Sonic Generations'' as a secret character and game model.
*It appeared in some of SomecallmeJohnny's reviews, consistently making him play bad games before it disappeared forever.
