Tails Reacts to Sonic SATAM

Archie Comics Continuation Scourge the Hedgehog Part 1

Tails is sitting in front of a computer and watches a cartoon that was simply called “Sonic the Hedgehog,” but has been dubbed “Sonic SATAM” by the fans.

After watching enough footage, Tails looks a bit upset.

Tails: Well, I’m not really impressed by what I’m seeing.  I mean, I don’t know what any of this has to do with what the Sonic games are about.  When is Sonic going to start destroying Badniks and rescuing animals?  Does Sonic ever fight Eggman directly?  I mean, Robotnik.  Heck, where am I in this cartoon?

Tails continues to watch the cartoon and sees a young, brown fox.

Tails: They made me a helpless child?!  But I’m Sonic’s best friend!  I was going on adventures with him and helped fight Dr. Eggman since the day we met!  Heck, at least the “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog” cartoon treated me like a kid sidekick!  But I’m not even given anything to do in this show!

Tails continues to watch the cartoon.  He sees Rotor Walrus interacting a lot with Sonic.

Tails: They made him Sonic’s best friend?

Tails sees Rotor tinkering with machines and creating new inventions.

Tails: Hey!  That’s my thing!  I’m the kid genius who tinkers with machines and creates inventions!

Tails tries to calm down.

Tails: Well, at least Rotor isn’t piloting the Tornado biplane and flying Sonic around.  That’s one iconic thing no can take from me.

Tails sees Rotor piloting the Freedom Stormer biplane.

Tails: Oh, come on!  He’s a pilot too?!

Tails sighs.

Tails: So, when do I become a part of the Freedom Fighters?  Or better yet, when do I start going on adventures with Sonic?

Tails does research on the internet.  Supposedly, he would’ve had a more active role in the third season, before the Sonic SATAM cartoon was cancelled.

Tails: Man, they didn’t respect my character at all!  They made me a side character while focusing on the Freedom Fighters.  And they gave my talents to someone else!

Tails opens a box of old comic books.

Tails: Well, I guess I’ll give the Archie Comics a read.  I’m sure they treated my character with proper respect.

Tails starts reading the comics, not prepared for what’s in store for him…

I managed to write this whole story tonight.  I don't know if I'll make this an ongoing series.  But I wanted to try my hand in writing how Sonic characters would react to Sonic media.

I don't know if I'll upset anyone with this short story.  But if I do offend anyone, I apologize in advance.

There was an episode where Sonic credited a successful operation to Tails since he came up with the plan, it was meant to be foreshadowing to Tails becoming more prominent in later episodes that ended up not getting made...but the image of Tails trembling under the covers when Bunnie does a scary voice for the big bad wolf is hard to shake off...

Yeah, the point is Tails has been adventuring with Sonic and helped him fight Eggman since the day they met.  And for him to reduced to a child no one takes seriously is upsetting.

you know what?  You just reminded me of something.  We take for granted that Sonic in the games has "always" been 15, but a little known fact is that he was younger in the SATAM cartoon and for quite some time in the Archie comic.  Over the decades of its run the Archie comic would occasionally have a birthday issue for Sonic, with the first one announcing Sonic's age at the time as 14, meaning he was only 13 when the comic started, likely the same age he was in the SATAM cartoon which the comic was meant to be a continuation of.  That means that in the cartoon and the earliest parts of the comic Tails would have only been 6, Cream's age.  The SATAM cartoon was meant to be telling the story of HOW these characters grew to become the characters they were in the video games, how Tails went from a little boy scared of the big bad wolf into a brave hero and mechanical prodigy.  (BTW, I don't remember exactly how many birthdays Sonic had over the comic's run as that's around 280 issues to dredge through, but I think by the end Sonic must have been about 19 or 20, which would put Tails at 12 or 13)

I think the post SGW reboot gave Tails a pretty decent origin, in THAT continuity Bunnie had severe complications after her partial robotocization, leaving her wheelchair bound, and Tails decided to study mechanics so he could improve her cybernetics and get rid of her pain, which is nice because it homages the familial relationship those two shared in the original cartoon while quickly getting Tails into the boy genius role he had in the games at the time.

I'm pretty sure Sonic was stated to be 16 in SATAM.  And even if Tails was younger in that cartoon, he was still allowed to go on adventures with Sonic in AOSTH.

You're right though.  Most of the game characters were treated better in Archie's reboot.

AoStH has Tails state he's "4 and a half years old!" (Episode 4, Slowwww Going)

Argue all you want about how SatAM handled Tails. AoStH gave him chances. And sometimes he's been able to win in fights against Robotnik / Eggman.

In contrast, Tails's arc in Sonic Adventure is all about him stepping out of Sonic's shadow (pun not intended) and becoming a hero of his own merit. Which is only briefly touched on in Sonic Adventure 2, and ... thereafter... discarded from all future media.


I wonder what Tails's reaction would be to that.
BlackFlash09

Well, 8 - 4 = 4.  So, I guess Tails was the only character with the appropriate age.

Agreed.  I like how he was handled in AOSTH over SATAM.

Yeah... by the time Sonic Heroes came out, the Sonic cast slowly started becoming shells of their former selves.  Amy, Knuckles, and Shadow being prime examples.

It's a step up from the British comic at least, where Tails is even more useless than he is in the video games.
BlackFlash09

Yeah, but at least Tails was present in those adventures.  And in the classic games, you have the option to play as Tails.
