Voice Compare » Sonic the Hedgehog » Miles (Tails) Prower

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Miles (Tails) Prower with sound clips and images.

Miles "Tails" Prower
is Sonic's most trusted friend. He's a two-tailed fox who can fly through the air by spinning his tails like a helicopter. A young genius, his intellect rivals people years older than him. Despite his intelligence with machines, Tails is still a kid and has some childish interests.

Being the youngest of the series' main characters, Tails has the most voice actors of any Sonic character. He was voiced by Bradley Pierce in Dic's Saturday morning Sonic the Hedgehog series, and Christopher Evan Welch in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. In the special episode of AoStH, Sonic Christmas Blast, which premiered in 1996, Chris Turner played Tails, as Christopher Welch presumably went through puberty. Lainie Frasier provided his voice in the Sonic OVA.

Corey Bringas provided the voice of Tails in Sonic Adventure. His voice deepened by the time Sonic Shuffle came out, so his younger brother Connor Bringas filled in for Sonic Adventure 2. In 2003-2004, Tails was played by William Corkery in Sonic Heroes, Battle, and Advance 3. Amy Palant played him for Sonic X and all games from 2005 to 2009. Kate Higgins voiced Tails in the video games from Sonic Colors to Sonic: Lost World. Beginning with the Sonic Boom sub-series (which includes a TV series, a Wii U video game, and a 3DS game), Tails will be voiced by Colleen O'Shaughnessey across all Sonic media.

I already like Colleen a lot. She's miles better than Kate Higgins. Already my second favourite Tails voice. She really makes him sound like a young boy. Definitely a nice replacement. She appears to have more vocal range and I agree about her sounding so natural.

Amy's still my favourite but I'm really enjoying Colleen's take on the character so far and I look forward to hearing more from her in the future.

Colleen already sounds much better than Kate and is overall a very welcoming and suitable replacement. Kate sounded too harsh and snarky which never rubbed the right way for me.

Colleen seems to give Tails a great amount of youthful energy with a natural delivery. She's already my second favourite voice just after Amy.

Colleen's Tails is more enjoyable for me than Kate's, although at times she does slip into her Charmy voice.

Amy is still and probably will always be my favorite, but Colleen is definitely a good replacement!

Colleen essentially takes all of Kate's voice and acting pros, distincts her voice from Kate and makes Tails sound more like a young boy. She easily has my vote :-)

It's tough to pick between Kate & Colleen. I'm conflicted right now.

As much as I like Kate, I'm changing my vote to Collen since she sounds more natural. Therefore Kate is close 2nd.

@Ross123 I'm surprised you decided to pick Colleen in the end

I already prefer Colleen(and Amy) to start with since she sounded less like a role I don't really like(it was more noticeable in the last few games Kate was in than in that Colors clip)

@HienFan I'm surprised too since I always said nobody would be a better Tails than Kate but here I am disagreeing with my own statement.

Like I mentioned in my comment, I feel Colleen sounds more natural as Tails. Also, she sounds slightly more intelligent than Kate's Tails so I'm leaning towards a cleverer Tails.

I actually like Colleen's voice for Tails a lot more than Kate Higgins'. She was one of the Colours voices that never really clicked with me. Colleen is a complete natural in the role and sounds just like you'd expect a kid fox genius to sound like (if that makes sense). Given time I can definitely see her as one of my top favourite Tails voices.

Me too. Aside from the fact that Tails' development has been stunted indefinitely, Higgins was just too smart-alecky, and Lost World really turned me off the character.

Palant's still my all time fav, but Colleen is definitely a welcome sight.

I think with Tails there is a big case of "reality is unrealistic",that being that when he is actually voiced by a young boy it sounds less convincing then when he is voiced by a woman.

That being said,when it comes to all the child actors that have played him I think the 3 that played him in the cartoons have done a better job than the ones in the video games,maybe because in the 2 cartoons Tails is portrayed as an merely cheerful child, without the child prodigy in engineering and mechanics aspect that he has in the games.

And the worst of them is defiantly William Corkery,his voice is just unbearable and makes Tails sound like he is a toddler with a bad cold. Connor and Corey on the other hand are just bland and flat.

Lainie Frasier is essentially the same as Corkery, only even more annoying.

Amy Palant is without a question the worst of the 4kids voice actors.Her vocal performance is laughably amateur and her acting isn't much better,i don't believe for a second that that's the voice of a 8 year old boy, no that's a grown woman with a sore throat.

Now obviously my favorite is Kate Higgins she was finally the voice that perfectly fitted the character,its such a shame that they plan to replace her with Coleen O Shaugnessey.

@CuriousUserX90 Ignoring the fact that these petitions almost never work, I don't think we even know why Kate isn't Tails anymore. It could have been her choice to leave the role. Why not actually give Colleen a fair chance? Sonic Boom isn't even out yet.

@Nightmare Crusher When we had Kate Higgins, she was the perfect voice for Tails, in contrast to his Previous Portrayals, not willing for he to be replaced. O'Shaugnessy already has Charmy though to voice.

Who'd do Wave the Swallow if Higgins doesn't come back? In the M&S Games, Higgins copied all lines Palant used in those games, and will stay that way till there's probably another Change of Cast Members.
Nightmare Crusher
said at 5:53 PM on Fri Sep 12 2014
@CuriousUserX90 That doesn't address anything I said. I will ask why you seem to think it's OK for Tails to share Wave's voice, but not Charmy's. As for who the new voice of Wave would be in a hypothetical new Riders game, I don't know. They'd just recast her like with Tails.

Kate Higgins, all the way!

Not only did she provide him a great voice, but she was amazing at playing his snarky side.

I honestly think she had some of the best line deliveries in both Colors and Generations, even outdoing Roger Craig Smith and Mike Pollock at times.

Considering how long Zach Callison has been in the voice acting industry, I think if that he would have stayed in the Sonic the Hedgehog series so far, using his Billy Batson/James voice throughout the series. I actually wish they cast child actors this time around, because, well, look at the large talent pool of amazing child actors in today's world.

@HyperVoiceActing No official reasoning. A few fans asked Sega about it on their social media pages when the news first broke and they declined to explain why. They just said something like, "We thank Kate Higgins for her work on this franchise." I don't think they're allowed to explain why.

To be entirely honest, I never noticed a change in Tails' voice when watching both the TV and game trailers. Colleen O'Shaughnessey sounds similar to Kate Higgins's Tails' voice.

I'm a bit surprised that Kate has been replaced earlier than expected, but at the same time, I'm not too bothered by it.

Wow, that is really weird. When I was watching the video I was wondering "Where is Kate Higgins?" When they showed Colleen as the voice of Tails I kind of threw back my head in disbelief. It couldn't have been a union issue or something like that. Maybe Sega wanted a different sound for Tails going forward? I think Colleen will do well, but man that casting change seems unnecessary.

Christopher Welch: This isn't very fair considering he's voicing Tails as a 4-year-old. When it comes to that he's actually more then qualified to be his voice honestly. But obviously this voice isn't going to work for the 8-year-old Tails of the games. Still, he sounds great.

Bradley Pierce: I never watched SatAM all the way through but hearing his voice here, I get Christopher Welch but a little bit older. You know, if they wanted to do this thing where Tails was starting off super young and got older, these voices would be perfect, I gotta say. Still, not right for Tails as an 8-year-old of course.

Lainie Frasier: I can be understanding of how stuffy and bad this voice sounds considering the circumstances behind where the voice actors of the OVA originate from. Still, it's not in the running at all.

Corey Bringas: His boy voice sounds great. It does sound like Tails at the age of 8. Problem comes in when it hits the acting part of voice acting. I can't give him too high of a mark for it honestly.

William Corkery: He sounds like he dived back in years after Adventure 2. Not only that but his words sound so broken. I can't really defend this. It doesn't sound good at all. No offense to this kid of course. He actually does do a decent enough job in the acting part I suppose. Hard to tell with this voice though.

Amy Palant: I remember defending Amy Palant way back when. I don't do that now since we now have Kate. I was never on the boat that said Tails sounded like a girl. It didn't exactly sound like a traditional boy either though, which is odd. My problem culminated with her when she did Sonic 06 and made Tails scream every word he said. It was so jarring going into Unleashed and hearing her strain herself to try and keep quiet. It must have hurt her voice to try and do the Tails voice or something. I dunno.

Christopher Turner: Sounds like 4-year-old Tails. And a good actor too. Better then William actually.

Connor Bringas: He's gone back from Sonic Adventure in the acting department. The voice itself is fine but I also like the Sonic Adventure voice better too. Hmm.

Kate Higgins: Without a doubt the best voice Tails has ever had. The whole thing with Tails always being voiced by a new boy was going to lead into problems obviously, and it did. The switch to Amy was okay for a bit but she really wasn't ideal as Tails. I can't believe it took until 2010 for Tails to get a respectively well acted voice that also sounds like a boy his age would sound. Fantastic.

1-: Kate Higgins: The perfect Tails voice, and the only truly good game voice he's ever had IMO. She really captures his intellect and youth the best, and actually has the acting chops. If there's one VA that must never be replaced from the current cast, it's her.
2-:Christopher Welch and Bradley Pierce: They aren't really versions of Tails I'm well familiar with, and they're voicing really childish versions, but they work well for their respective performances.
3-:Connor Bringas: The voice is certainly age appropiate, but it sounds like he graduated from the Jake Lloyd school of acting if you know what I mean XD. Fitting voice, but it really sounds like he's just reading from the script most of the time.
4-: Amy Palant: I'm sorry but she never grew on me as the character. She always sounded way too high pitched and a lot of her acting came off as really awkward, especially when she was screaming. Still, she did alright and sounded somewhat fitting in Sonic X and Unleashed, but that's about it.
5-: Corey Bringas: Sounds a little like his younger brother, but he sounded too old and deep, plus the acting was even more forced.
6-: Laine Fraiser: Really annoying and sounds stuffed up, but she kind of sorta reminds me of Dexter at some points (am I the only one that hears traces of it?)
7-: William Corkery: Like Laine, it's as if he as a cold, but he's somehow even more babyish sounding than Laine. Easily a big step down from Connor.

Even today, I think Corey's my favorite voice for Tails. Authentic 8 year old sounding boy for a 8 year old character. Same for William Corkery, but not as much love since it was a bit too young so it was like a step back after the first two games. Conner Bringas had an ok voice for the character age wise, but his delivery just felt choppy. But Kate's doing really well with the character now. Aside for the nostalgia love I have for Corey Bringas' take on Tails, she's the best

1. Connor Bringas- a cool voice, which fits Tails.
2. Kate Higgins- Kate, you aren't a voice actor for Tails, you ARE Tails. I hope you'll voice him for a very long time.
3. Corey Bringas- Not too bad. But there still are some bugs.
4. Christopher Evan Welch- Good. I like it. But still not so good as Connor.
5. Amy Palant- Calm down! Calm down! I mean it! Calm down!
6. Bradley Pierce- Hm... Not so good as is Amy. But is still good.
7. Christopher Turner- I've heard it only once, so i can't rate it very good.
8. Lainie Fraisier- UGH! Is this Tails OK? NO! Lainie, you just failed your job.
9. William Corkery- William, William, William. You are a bad actor, like all Corkerys. With William's voice, Tails sounds like he has a bad cold, or stuffed nose, it is nasal and weird. So, WILLIAM CORKERY, NEVER VOICE TAILS AGAIN!

All of them, with the exception of William Corkery, are awesome. I think the best child actor who would fit Tails perfectly would be Zach Callison, and the next best voice actress who would fit Tail, besides Kate Higgins, would be Wendee Lee.

I'll just add a little example on how the producers have final say and if they want to fire someone or replace someone they can do it with a snap of the finger:

Take Sarah Wulfeck for example, who voiced Cream the Rabbit. She was fired without prior warning and replaced by Rebecca Honig.

Another example would be:

The character Amy Rose from the series now sounds nothing like her original persona. Which is ironic because the producers wanted the characters voice to change, which concludes that they basically have the final say on how they want the voices to change. At least Nintendo keep their leading lady Peach's voice the same.

Corey Bringas was the first person to voice tails in Sonic Adventure 1999 then again in Sonic Shuffle 2000. But by 2001 he was replaced by his brother Connor Bringas. It's probably hard to keep boys voicing the character due to the changes in their voices. I personally think when Tails actually has a boy doing his voice it brings him more out in character, probably due my memory of sonic american cartoon series 1993.
I'm only going to put Tails current voices in my + order, meaning only the people who can still do his voice.

1. Kate Higgins is probably my number one choice for Tails. Her voice sounds very smooth and easy to listen to.

2. Amy Palant did a great job filling in for tails in the Sonic Riders era-??? No idea why she was replaced. I did get a insight in the whole voice acting for Sega "America" "Sonic Series" they tell the voice actors how they want the voices to be and they choose how they want the voice to sound.

OK, here are my rankings and my reasons( for video game acting, that is)
1. Corey Bringas: Okay, this is the original Tails right here, he even makes Tails sound naturally like a young kid, like he should be.

2. Connor Bringas: This guy comes in a close second following his older brother, because he almost sounds exactly like him.

3. Kate Higgins: Okay, that would be unfair if she wasn't at least in the top 3. In Colors, when she voiced Tails, she did so well that it was so hard for me to tell that Tails was being played by a women. Once I found out I was pretty impressed.

4: William Corkery: He did well, but not too well. He kind of made Tails sound too high. If he had made Tails' voice lower, he would be higher on the list.

5. Amy Palant:Not to be mean, but Amy's acting was so bad that I could tell that Tails was being played by girl from the start of her career.(Unlike Kate, who did better at acting like a boy)

For animes, I'd say Laine blew it, and Christopher Evan Welch nailed it.

@Mephilesthelight358 I somewhat agree with you on that but when he was talking to knuckles it sounded a bit weird. My overall favorite is Kate Higgins but I think Corey Bringas is my favorite male voice of Tails while once again my overall favorite is Kate Higgins.
So Corey is Best Voice match while Kate is best performance.

I'll just share my thoughts on each individual VA.

Christopher Evan Welch: Surprisingly good acting for a child VA. He sounds appropriate for the age, and pulls off his lines well.

Bradley Pierce: Kind of sounds like Christopher, but with less material to work with. Good as well.

Laine Frasier: Really don't like her voice for Tails. Way to nasally.

Chris Turner: It's decent. Again, it's fitting, and the acting is fine, but I need to hear more in order to make a solid judgement.

Corey Bringas: A fitting voice, but his acting sounds really forced.

Connor Bringas: He sounds like his brother, but a little more high pitched. He delivers the most fitting Tails voice next to Kate Higgins. Shame, he would be my favorite if he didn't sound like he was reading from the script.

William Corkery: Ugh, my least favorite next to Laine Fraiser. The voice is incredibly high pitched, the acting is forced, and he sounds like he has a cold.

Amy Palant: She's got the acting chops, but she really doesn't sound like a boy. Props to her making Tails sound a bit geeky, but the voice itself is way to high pitched.

Kate Higgins: My favorite! She sounds like an 8 year old boy, makes Tails sound like a geeky tech wizard, and actually knows how to act in order to compliment those two attributes! I hope she voices the part for a very long time.

My all time favorite Tails is obviously Kate Higgins since she seems more legit than most of the female VAs because here she actually sounds like a little boy instead of a girl. Plus her Tails performance made me appreciate her other takes on anime characters so much so that I actually have her as one of my favorites.

my order..

1- Kate Higgins- stuck between her and Amy Palent but Kate's voice makes him sound more like a cute little boy than Amy. It sounds natural and just fits his character in my opinion.

2- Amy Palant- not sure if this is because she voiced him for such a long time or not. She does make him sound too much of a girl at times but there's just something about her interpretation that i like. The longer she voiced Tails, the more she improved and she had a really good performance.

3-Corey Bringas- loved his voice for Tails! him and Connor are by far the best male VA's for Tails in my opinion! Corey is just that bit better though because he sounds more natural and really delivered the lines well!

4- Connor Bringas- Obviously the next one on the list! He makes Tails sound his age (as well as Corey) and i couldn't help but like his work because of this. His voice also fitted Tails' character really well.

5-Bradley Pierce- What can i say? his voice was so adorable! it fitted Tails' character at the time, obviously it wouldn't anymore since he's older now, but in my opinion, i enjoyed listening to Bradley more than the other 1990's animations.

6- Christopher Evan Welch- I can imagine he was such a cute little voice actor at the time! He's close to Bradley for me but it sounded a bit too over the top in comparison. That's not necessarily bad though.

7- Christopher Turner- Can't really criticize him since im sure he was only a cover for Walch, but, comparing them, he didn't have the same touch as Walch did.

8-William Corkery- I'm not too keen on William's interpretation... I don't think it was a good idea to go from someone like Corey and Connor Bringas who made Tails sound his age, to William who made him sound about 5 years younger either. Not to mention him sounding like he always had a cold... If he voiced him in something like Sonic Satam, then it would be okay, but it didn't fit him... Don't get me wrong, he did okay for games like Sonic Battle and Sonic Advance where we only heard sounds, but that's about it.

9-Lainie Fraisier- Okay, so i'm not usually mean about voice acting but Lainie is by far the WORST Tails possible! annoying to listen to, incredibly naisily and just so unfitting it's untrue! No wonder Sonic in that movie got irritated by his voice! Mind you, none of the cast in that movie were right were they? let's be serious...

@WWEFAN12ization I mean literally, Kirby is voiced by a female Japenese voice actor both in Japan and here. She does the job well. The reason I hate Amy is because ever since she started, during the games, it was pretty obvious that he was being played by a girl voice actor. Kate made Tails sound more like Ash Ketchum (Who also has a female VA). If there is anyone who should voice Tails at all, it should be a young BOY voice actor, because Tails with a young voice actor fits like PB&J.

@Mephilesthelight358 Oh dear.

It would be far too time-consuming for too little gain to hold auditions for and decide on a new kid voice actor every time the last one gets too old. Women's voices do not change as dramatically as men's voices do, so they can sound like little boys much more convincingly than grown men can. That is not sexist in the least. That is practical, not a big deal, and saves time/money in the long run.

Referring to women as "*****es" on the other hand (like you did in your previous comment, and later on claimed to not be sexist), THAT is pure misogyny.

Anyway, this is a really touchy subject and given the nature of your past comments, I don't see this ending well. All I'm going to say is that we WILL block your comments if this keeps up. Consider this your last warning.

The only one I'm used to was Kirby, because he had a girl voice actor in Japan who also voiced the English Kirby. I guess the reason I despised Kate was because I wasn't used to her really, compared to whoever voices Kirby. So apologies everyone, I made a mistake. Thank you NCZ for helping me realize this.

My personal top 4 would have to be Connor Bringas, Kate Higgins, Bradley Pierce, and Amy Palant. The rest were okay.

But really, Connor would have to be my favorite. Yeah, he didn't really stretch the voice but I feel he could've gotten better with a better written script. I just like it when Tails sounded more like a boy but I can understand why they would have a female VA for him and with that, I give it to Kate Higgins. Amy Palant was alright but I personally didn't really care for Tails' voice in Sonic X but this could be because I was so used to Connor.

Still, Tails is one of the most iconic Sonic characters and it's nice they've kept him.

1- For me, William didn't play as Tails, he WAS Tails! He was so cute and energetic yet annoying in that cutesy way little kids are. My favorite part from Heroes had to have been when the team is getting chased by the wheels in Ocean Palace and Tails screams "Ah! There are two rocks now!" That makes me laugh every time XD. I really love how animated his voice is as well, kind of sounding like Fievel from An American Tail or something.

2- Connor and Kate were really good, too. I'm a huge FMA fan so I love how much Connor sound like Alphonse and for a woman Kate really knows how to make Tails sound like a boy. The only real problem is I just found them kind of bland, not so much that I didn't like them but enough to make me think it wouldn't be fun to have an adventure with them. Hell, most of the time it sounds like all they do is speak their lines, not act them out. Idk, maybe stiff writing is what holds them back, but I still like them. It may be too late for Connor, but with more time I think Kate will loosen up and fit the role better.

3- To be honest I think Amy acted out the part better than Connor and Kate. She was more lively and engaging, much like Will, but also had this quirky charm about her reminiscent of Dana Hill's Max Goof (why do I keep comparing Tails' voices to other things?) I only have one nag with her, and it's sort of a big nag, her voice. I'm sorry, I just can't back up this girly voice. I understand boys are typically high pitched, but this is over doing it. Amy Birnbaum would've probably been a better casting choice on 4kids part, but I still liked Palant's take for what it's worth.

4- As for Corey, I think he gave Tails a genuine "boy next door" approach which worked for the most part. I just didn't find him as memorable as the other four (Well, except that opening scene in SA where he does the fakest scream I've ever heard. lol so hilarious)

This is why Sega should of had the characters get older. Tails would still be voiced by a boy if they did. While Kate is the best of all the female VAs, she still can't hold a candle to any of the male VAs, except maybe William Corkery. Then again it might not be fair to compare those two since he didn't get as good material as she did.

all of the actors did good jobs at making Tails sound smart but also have the childlike quality to his sentences and voice. Evan Walch is my favorite of the Western TV versions of tails, Palant is my favorite of the anime versions of tails with good dialogue in the games as well and Higgins is my favorite of the Video Game versions because she does a mix of both the TV versions of tails and the game versions, not to mention, is the first time Tails has sounded like a boy in several years so I'll go with her

@Mephilesthelight358 Never. It's too inconvenient to keep looking for and hiring new little boy actors every time one of them hits puberty. Besides, the Japanese VA is female, so hiring a female VA for the English version is a much more accurate choice.

@CatsTuxedo Actually, while Tails is currently voiced by a woman in Japanese, the Japanese versions of the Adventure games had him voiced by male child actors (Kazuki Hayashi and Atsuki Murata). They only hired Ryo Hirohashi once Heroes and Sonic X came around. With that being said, I do agree that it's better to have a female VA so they don't have to constantly recast him (as much as I'm not a fan of Kate's voice for him).

1- Connor to me was great. There were times when it sounded like he was reading from his script but I didn't mind it. He sounded nerdy, ambitious, and overall invested in the adventure.

2- Bradley totally fit the little brother role in SatAm. I'd expect nothing less from the kid who played Chip.

3- I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard Kate because I thought Sega decided to go back to hiring boys when I heard Tails in Colors. Very convincing and fun to listen to!

4- I'm fully aware I'm in the minority on this but I like Will. I've heard child voice acting based around nepotism in the past and believe me, I've heard the worst. These fall under the categories of incredibly robotic and wooden, or shouting every line of dialogue given to them. Luckily Will never hit these categories to me. He emoted when he needed to and didn't just scream all of his lines obnoxiously. To me he just sounded adorable and very much like a little brother. I wish he could've had the chance to redeem himself to the fanbase in more games. He's pretty underrated if you ask me.

5- Both Chris's were equally engaging in their roles, just not as memorable as the ones above.

6- I like Corey's voice, I just hate his acting. All he did was scream all of his lines and playing through his story on SA1 got really old, really fast!

7- To Amy's credit she was subtle. What really holds her back is her acting is the equivalent of storybook reading to a kindergarten class, constantly talking down to her audience with little to no regard for their intelligence (though to be fair, most of 4kids does that). Another thing is her voice was too soft, making Tails sound uncomfortably feminine and nearly every scene with him and Sonic sound a little homoerotic. In all, I'm not a fan.

8- Lainie was too nasally for my taste and constantly shouted her lines throughout the OVA. I'm guessing no one taught her and Corey subtlety when directing them. Is it me or did she sound like Chuckie Finster?

I'm going to skip the young boys voice actors since its not really fair to judge them since they only have one role and their voices should be different by now. I will say that out of the three, Connor is my favorite and I'm going to leave it at that.

Amy makes Tails sounds too much like a girl at first, my nephew thought that Tails was a girl at first and I had to explain it in great detail why Tails is a guy. She has deepen Tail's voice and I think perfected it on Unleashed but it was a little too late for her.

Kate is my favorite out of all the videogame voice actors. Normally, you can detect a bit of a girlish sound when women do a boy's voice but Kate does a good job making it sound like an actual boy. Her acting is good as well, really makes Tails calm and smart.

Video Game wise:

Kate Higgins and Connor Bringas are my favorite voices. Though I usually hate it when women voice boys in general, Kate does a surprisingly good job and sounds more boyish than…*sigh*…his last voice actor. Connor, imo, gave a really convincing and light hearted performance in SA2 and I only wish he could’ve voiced for more games.

William Corkery is the closest to a convincing eight year old male voice than any of the VG actors. To me he sounds cute and like he's actually trying to act and give Tails a personality. What holds him back in Sonic Heroes, though, is the terrible lines of dialogue he’s given. But you can make that case for everyone in that game.

Corey Bringas sounded too old and really obnoxious like he wasn't even trying to act.

Amy Palant made one of my favorite characters sound bland, whiny, and very gay. For Unleashed she did a very poor mans imitation of Veronica Taylor which, by the way, she didn't even bother to stick with in Black Knight (Thank God her role was really small, though). Palant, I'm sure you're a nice lady, but just stick to psychotherapy and leave acting to the actors.

Animation wise:
Bradley Pierce definitely fit the little brother role perfectly. Loved him in SatAm!

Christopher Turner and Christopher Evan Welch are equally good. No complaints.

I already explained my views on Amy and someone please give Lainie Frasier some Theraflu before you put her behind a recording booth!

@Edork42 On second thought, after listening to him in Sonic Shuffle, Corey really wasn't that bad. He sounded way better than his SA1 performance despite still sounding pretty old. He may be a notch better than Will.

I never really watched any of the sonic tv series growing up. I mainly stuck to the games. And the Sonic Adventure series (the first two) were my favorite of all the sonic games. I found Tail's voice extremely cute in both games, and it fit his character very well, but I was not a fan of the raspy voice he got in Sonic Heroes all the way through. I also find it interesting how the voice actors from Sonic Adventure 1 and Sonic Adventure 2 have the same last names. Are the brothers/cousins/etc?

The problem with boys is that they grow up and there voices change. The females voices stay the same forever. I'm suprised that Amy Palant wasn't hired to do the voice-over for sonic colors.

Amy Palant suits tails the best. Kate Higgins tries a bit too hard to act tails. she tries to make it sound like they never swapped the other VA of tails. I think that if she dosen't try too hard, then she would be just fine.
Lainie Frasier is one of my favorite VA for tails as well. If they made a sonic video game where tails just had a few lines, then she would be the perfect fit.
William Corkery is an okay voice for tails, but he makes tails sounds like he has a stuffed up nose. He would also be a great tails if he just had a few lines.
Corey Bringas makes a great tails, but he makes him sound a little older than he's supposed to be. He's still great though.
Out of all of the VA's that I chose, I would have to say that Amy Palant is No.1 out of my top 5. Lianie 2nd, Kate 3rd, William 4th, & Corey 5th. And these are my top 5 VA's who I think are the most suited for tails.

I never liked the really kiddish voices like Chris T., Bradley, Corey, Chris EW., and Connor. I think Lainie''s voice for Tails in Sonic OVA was pretty unique, though it did sound too much like a real kid. Kate Higgins is really good but the very best voice is Amy Palant. End of story.

@LivChan45 I feel the same with some roles! With Tails, I think he benefited best by a woman voice actor, since the acting is usually better with an adult rather than a child, but sometimes the child can be a good fit, take zach tyler eisen, he was young when he did Aang, but his acting was above average than most kids.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:28 AM on Thu Apr 26 2012
I can live with a female voice, but I always like hearing the sound of a real kid. It makes things seem more genuine. Still, the quality of the acting depends on who the actor is and direction so it is ultimately be case-by-case (plus, I can't deny that some women can do convincing boy voices, like Nancy Cartwright or Elizabeth Daily).

For example, Corey had a good voice, but the acting and direction could've been better (the way Adventure was dubbed wasn't the best, which was probably a factor). Bradley Pierce, on the other hand, had better direction and brought in a stronger performance.

Unfortunately, Kate, Lainie, and Amy just don't do it for me. None of them seem to have both the voice and acting down. Kate's doesn't sound convincing at all despite her acting, Lainie sounds like she has a cold, and Amy's is too grating. There probably is a female VA who can do Tails justice, but at this moment, though, I think hiring real children suits him better.
AMT
said at 11:58 AM on Fri Apr 27 2012
@NCZ I agree for the most part. While I like Kate as a voice actress, I also think she isnt too convincing for tails, it just doesnt click for me.

And granted, while I like Amy best, some of her appearances she did sound a tad-babyish and high pitch, but one thing I liked about her as tails, is when she laughed, it was a cute and convincing laugh for a child, something I noted once earlier that Kate so far hasnt been able to do.

On a side note, where did all the Kate votes come from?! They came out of nowhere lmao

Here's my opinion on every voice actor:
Christopher Evan Welch, Bradley Pierce, Chris Turner - They're all pretty good. I can't decide which one is better.
Lainie Frasier - Not that good. She makes him sound like he has a cold.
Corey Bringas - Voice is good. Acting is bad. In Sonic Shuffle, he sounds like he's shouting.
Connor Bringas - Acting is better. But, still not as good as it should be.
William Corkerly - Definitely not as bad as Lainie Fraiser. But, could of been better. BTW he was ten when he did the voice in Sonic Heroes.
Amy Palant - She's not the worst Tails VA. But, she's definitely not the best IMO. She made Tails sound like a girl. She did sound better in Sonic Unleashed. In Sonic and the Black Kinght, she felt mixed to me. She's not as bad as I thought she was when I first heard her. But, I don't think she should come back.
Kate Higgins - Best Tails VA in my opinion. She actually makes Tails sound like a boy and the acting is good too. I also enjoyed her voice for Classic Tails in Sonic Generations. I hope SEGA keeps her around for a long time.

Amy was good but she has that roughness added to Tails' voice that would make it sound too identical to Chris' voice in Sonic X. Anyone who'd watch the show would come across thinking that at least once. Not that it's a big deal, but I feel that there's a little too much roughness to it. Even though there are a lot of voice actors for Tails, it was pretty easy on whose was better.
About half of these acters were just terrible. Meaning the Bringas bros., Corkery, and Frasier.
Welch, Pierce, and Turner does not fit into age.
Kate needs a small amount of work on sounding more boyish but I like her the best.

Christopher Turner - He does a good imitation of Welch... and has better acting!
Lainie Fraiser - Kind of corny, like all of the other VAs... not saying that's a bad thing, but it's kind of weird that she makes Tails sound like has a cold throughout the entire movie.
Corey & Connor Bringas - Good voice, bad acting.
William Corkery - He sounds a bit too young IMO, but his acting is good.
Amy Palant - Her acting was pretty good, but she only sounded like a boy in Sonic Unleashed.
Kate Higgins - She does a good job at making Tails sound intelligent; she's my favorite out of the female VAs.

Tough one here, real tough, maybe I'll vote after a top 9.....wow, for number, 1....I'm very tempted to say..

1. Kate Higgins- Alright, yes the voice she uses is kinda girly, really Sakura like, but still, she is one of the very very few here that's a fully competent actress, and she voices Tails masterfully from an acting perspective, and to me that's the most important thing.

2. Bradley Pierce- There were a lot of experiments with male VAs voicing Tails, and back in the 90s cartoons they were mostly faliures. Bradley really stands out to me because the voice he used fit Tails perfectly, and he was pretty good in acting him out. The only reason I gave Kate number 1 and not him was that he had a far easier gig, as Tails really played no bigger role in Sonic the Hedgehog SatAm than that of the adorable little kid, and it's an easier role to play for a cute little baby fox than they get in the game, and Kate seems to be better at acting him out.

3. Corey Bringas- Alright, I'll admit he's ot quite as talented and actor as the latter 2, but from here on down none of them in particular are. Out of all the actual little boys they used for Tails I think he acts him best. I also think he put out the best voice for Tails, despite the fact that his mic didn't seem to be that good, but this is a contest of voice acting not budget. So to me that makes him a distant third, and the voice gives him a nice tie breaker over...

4. Amy Palant- As I said, she isn't the best at acting, bt nobody from here down are, as far as the 4Kids era VAs go, she's one of the more tolerable ones. The voice she used for Tails was pretty good, and she was an almost toleralble actress at times, so I'll give her 4, I really thought about giving her 3, but all in all I liked Corey's performance better.

5. Christopher Turner- Although he only voiced Tails in the christmas special, I was prett impressed by him. He acted Tails really well, and voice was great too. He'd be higher on this list, #3 at least, but I can't really place him too too high, because he was only in a 30 minute special. If this were a just world he would have been the voice of Tails in the whole AoStH series at least.

6. Connor Bringas- One thing I'll say is, he had potential. The voice (which sounds a whole lot like Aaron Dismuke to me) was great, but his acting performance was not. I think he would have gotten better if he had the opprotunity, but that's the problem with usung kids, they et older, and perhaps that's what happened. But you did see his acting potential in flashes throughout Sonic Adventure 2.

7. Chrisopher Evan Welch- The voice he used was okay, his acting wasn't. Thankfully AoStH isn't taken too seriously so backlash is minimal.

8. William Corkery- He actually put on a far better acting performance in my mind than CE Welch and Connor, problem is...and I've tried to be objective up to this point, but I'm sure my opinion is shared by some here when I say HE'S ****ING ANNOYING!!!

9. Lainie Frasier- Now I grew up with Sonic the Movie, in fact I was at that right age where I experienced all of the animated series in amouts, but even so, Lainie Frazier, is more annoying than William Corkery, and she's not a good actress here, so she earns her spot on the ass end well.

@tailz Hate to start flame wars here, hope this doesn't become one, especially since it's been so long since this post and your response (don't come on very often lately). The fact is outside the bottom 2 or three I wouldn't even say any of my assessments of their performances were altogether negative much less. Either way, I would like you to enlighten me, what was so offensive? The F-Bomb, the A-Bomb, or the fact that I said they were annoying? I simply called them as I saw them, I like to think I had a fairly good idea of what I was talking about seeing as how I've heard all of their performances extensively, even went as far as to explicitly state it as being solely my opinion so as not to be confused as fact. I wouldn't really call this "behind their backs either" considering this is in fact out in the open where anybody can read it. As for picking on my self, I won't share my life story or anything here but I will say that at certain stages of life I'd done plenty of that. Given the dysfunctional mess my life has been thus far, I think fate has had a good laugh doing so as well. ;) This of coarse is a separate issue from the topic at hand.

Also a word of advice, to a rational person who is above taking things overly personally an insult can be a good thing. Perhaps there are things wrong with you that you could improve, or can even be used as motivation to get ahead in life.

Either way, if you or someone you know has actually been seriously offended FOR REAL, then I extend my apologies.

For retro Tails, Turner with Pierce as a close second, since they sound so similar. As for modern Tails, DEFINITELY Connor Bringas, with Corey as a close second since, again, they sound almost the same. After that Higgins and then Palant, because they didn't sound like a baby like the rest of the sorry attempts at Tails. But the fact is, once you've heard a boy do a boy's voice, it's hard to get used to a woman doing it.

So I thought Corkery was bad...Then I heard Fraiser...

1:Connor Bringas - Just sounds like what an 8 year old should. Plus it sounds pretty realistic.

2: Kate Higgins- Amy palant almost got here, but I didn't like her Tails voice in Unleashed so much..Anyway, Kate does an amazing job at portraying Tails voice in this. Doesn't sound to girly, not to manly (Corey).

3. Amy Palant- Tails voice with her has just grown on me as what he sounds like. However, I didn't like all of what she did.

4.Bradley Pierce- Although I've never heard him before, he sounds phenomenal. Just sayin.

5.Corey Bringas- Tails original video game voice was great, but just doesn't compare to the other ones. But this one is the most memorable (in a good way!)

6.Both Christophers of AOSTH Tails- I really don't know much about these ones, except that they're better than the others below this..

7.William Corkery- Thanks to this guy, Tails had such a bad reputation when I was a kid. Sonic Heroes was the game that we all played and we all just thought he was stupid. Thanks William.

Lainie Frasier- I thought William Corkery sounded nasal, but GOOD GOSH is this BAD! Really!! What the crap SEGA! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?

One thing cool I thought of, though a bit irrelevant, sorry if it is....
Ever heard of Touhou and ever noticed the Koumajou Densetsu/Touhouvania series?
One of my favorite characters, Youmu Konpaku was voiced by Ryou Hirohashi in KMJ II.

And when I was on Sonic News Network, I was looking at Tails' page and found out RYOU HIROHASHI VOICED HIM IN JAPANESE EVER SINCE 2003.

Because of this, I found a lot of similarities between both Youmu and Tails(two tails, two swords, blue eyes, try their hardest, look up to someone, oriented between speed and power, etc.)

Since Sakuya Izayoi is my other favorite, I started to compare her to Sonic on blue coloer and speed theme, and Shadow on personality. Reimu Hakurei on the ohter hand also fits in with Shadow's role quite well I realized. Because of the seiyuu discovery, I CAN'T UNHEAR Youmu from Tails, and Youmu from Touhouvania 2 sounds like a 16 year old Tails imitating Hayate Ayasaki(his JPN VA, Ryouko Shiraishi even voiced Chip!). XP

When I came up with a fanlist for characters' VA, Sonic and Touhou were some of the casts included. Just to play tribute to her similarities to Tails, WOULDN'T IT BE COOL IF KATE HIGGINS COULD VOICE YOUMU IN ENGLISH?!

Here's my preference:

1. Kate Higgins

She was a very good choice to voice Tails. She gives Tails the boyish tone that was needed for quite a while. That being said, it does sound like she kinda forced her voice to be as boyish as possible, thus not giving the actual voice enough range. But she might warm up for the role, so I'm willing to give her time. I'll look forward to hearing her in the future games.


2. Bradley Pierce:

Back when he was a child, Bradley had such a cute voice, so it made sense that he was casted to do Tails' voice in SATAM. I have no complaints on his voice, but it's not really a voice I ideally prefer. This is mostly due to the fact that he makes Tails sound a little younger that I would expect from an 8 year old character. That's just me though, and he did a good job on Tails overall.


3. Connor Bringas

Apparently, he was the one who did Tails' voice in Sonic Adventure 2, rather than his older brother Corey Bringas. I give Connor props for giving Tails a proper, organic boy voice. Out of all the males that did Tails' voice in the past, Connor was my favorite based on the tone and feel. However, like some of the other actors in SA2, his acting was a little weak, and he sometimes delivered his lines in a very strange way. But I put him fairly high on my list because he had the best voice in my opinion.


4. Christopher Evan Welch

He was a decent Tails voice. Like Bradley, his voice was pretty cute too, but to me this voice wasn't all that distinctive. So it's a bit hard for me to rank him since he's not bad, but not really the best either. Anyhow, he's alright.


5. Christopher Turner

Like Christopher Evan Welch (AOSTH), his voice isn't all the distinctive. That isn't to say its bad though. It's simply fine. Since we only heard him in the AOSTH christmas special, there isn't much to comment on this voice.


6. Amy Palant:

Maybe it's just me, but I don't like it when Tails sounds overly high pitched. Tails' voice in the cartoons was rather high pitched at times, but at least those were done by actual boys, thus sounding more natural. Amy Palant makes Tails sound really bland most of the time. There are a few times when she tries real hard to put emotion in the role, but the results are more grating than pleasant. I also think of Tails as a girl whenever Amy voices him. My 8 year old cousin once thought that Tails was a girl after hearing Amy's voice. I'm not kidding.

I simply think she was a miscast when she was hired to do Tails in Sonic X and the games. I know many are going to disagree and think she's perfect, but hey, that's what I think.


7. Corey Bringas

While his voice was pretty good, his acting was poor in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Shuffle. He sounded really annoying most of the time, and he sounded like he put little to no effort on his acting. Though Connor's acting wasn't all that great either, at least his was a bit more passable. Corey sounded like he didn't even try on his delivery. So I don't have much good things to say about this one.


8. William Corkery

He...wasn't very good. The kid sounded like he had almost no acting talent. His voice was also awkward-sounding. He sounded like he had a stuffed nose as well. I don't think he was a good choice to replace the Bringas when they both did Tails.


9. Lainie Frasier

Easily the lowest ranking Tails voice out there. Tails sounded like he had a terrible cold in the Sonic OVA, and her acting was very robotic. It's hard to even say what's good about this one. No disrespect towards Lainie, but she just didn't sound good as Tails.

@BlueSkySlash In the case of Kate Higgins, I think that's true. After all, she's more of playing Tsunderes and Big Cool Sis types, and I think THIS IS her first time voicing a young boy.

Correct me if I'm wrong.....

Most recent role comparison...

Corkery: FAIL! Too whiny and it sounds like this kid has NO acting experience.

Palant: Better. It sounds more mature and intelligent (albeit it CAN be a tad grating times). But she definitely sounds better than a kid.

Higgins: Huh. This is arguably the best voice that Tails has had. She actually manages to make him sound like a boy, put a bit of brain into it, and the voice doesn't really grate that much. PERFECT!

Amy Palant was the best Tails voice for me She gave Tails a high and young fitting voice which most young boys sound like before their voices break not only that but she made Tails somewhat loveable and more loyal to others ponting out reasons and listing out facts she gave this mature and sensible voice but She toned this down a notch in Unleashed and BK but still had a mix of tone A blend of both tones which sounded nice despite sounded a bit too high in early performances I think she gets my vote :)

Corey Bringas made a great Tails in Adventure bringing this noble voice Tails putting matters in his own hands, knowing he can't depend on Sonic forever and turning Tails into this sweet and kind Kid He did a good job despite some lines sounding fake XD he did have some problems though

Kate Higgins not sure about her I'll need to decide on this one in the next games at some times she is okay but there are times when she tries to hard to make Tails sound boyish and like a young boy I think what she needs to do is try not to push herself so hard and take it slow and steady then go for it...She sounded girly at some times but for now I'll leave her out...

The rest were good back then in the past they all portrayed the Very Younger Tails well indeed but also had some problems they go in the middle for me

Connor Bringas sounded too high at most times in SA2 and uh...William Corkey uh he was terrible in Heroes it sounded like Tails was ill or had cold most of the time or something uh But he sounded better in Advance 3 he sounded more free and edgy which was nice I wonder why he didn't produce this in Heroes...

Lainie is by far the worst Tails XD

I like them all except Laine's. lol

The selected clips don't show it, but Amy Palant CAN sound like a boy. Compare Amy Palants Shadow The Hedgeohg, Sonic 06, Sonic X lines to freakin William Corkery. I know Corkery isn't the best with his flu-sounding voice (probably homage to Sonic OVA's Tails for some reason) buuut William IS a boy and Amy Palant sounds like him a year or 2 older without the cold. Plus, some of Amy's lines were executed epically.

I like Welch and Pierce too they sounded exactly the same. lol Straaange. But they sounded best for those shows as he sounds too young and... well not genius-like. =P The third guy, Christopher something, sounds like Pierce more than Welch but overall they sound exactly the same. Now THAT'S a feat.

Kate Higgins is pretty good. Sounds like Amy Palant with improvement so that's a nice semi-impersonation (I say semi cuz it also SLIGHTLY sounds more like a buy but not by much as it still sounds like Sakura from Naruto who's a girl. Plus seeing Kate's pic next to the voice, the voice just sounds like a girl. But if you think about it, Welch and Peirce also sounded like girls as well as boys. XD William sounded like Amy Palant who's female. XD)

Corey and Conner sound so much alike I hate that hardly anyone gives Conner credit considering the two as the same voice. They're BROTHERS not the same person. lol I like them both equally tho voice was. But acting was, I like Conner better. It sounds the the main Tails voice the rest were going for but never achieved. The only reason I say him over Corey is because the acting.

Now I know Conner's acting isn't that great either but it's a little better than Corey's, and I know it was just cuz they were young and Tails is supposed to sound young like that... HOWEVER my problem isn't with their speech pattern. It's with some of the lines sounding read-off-paper. But most of all, Tails' Sonic Adventure intro scene debuts him with a scream for while in a wacking out plan, and that scream is sooooo fake. XD

Amy Palant to me portrayed Tails best.
1) She played the kid side of Tails perfectly. She sounded like a kid and had the voice for a kid. Very vivacious and warm!
2) She also made him sound cute and nerdy at the same time.
3) She's one of the few Tails voice actors/actresses that could actually act well.

Connor sounded more like a boy than a girl, the kid (at least when he was a kid) made Tails sound like Christopher Robin.

Kate's voice is a little too inconsistent as her voice reverts to her sakura voice which shud stay FAR away from tails in this aspect.

All of the Tails voices sound like girls, thats becuz ther young voices. Some just sound huskier than others

I personally like Amy Palant becuz she had a cute voice for Tails and still made him sound smart. She made him sound just like he is. An 8 year old mini-genius sidekick little brother.

You people must be high if you think Amy Palant was the best Tails actor.

She was hardly the worse, but any boy sounded WAY better than her before their boy-berries dropped. I'm surprised Bradley or Connor weren't on top as they should be. MAYBE Christopher Welch.

Good day!

Oh and Kate Higgins wasn't bad as Tails, she's the first female English Voice actor to get it right.

Id also like to point out that ALL these voice actors sound like girls, since ther voices are very high pitched, the only reason some will say its a boy is becuz they KNOW its a boy so they convince themselves. If someone told you all these VAs were girls you'd probably believe it.

I mean its like Justin Bieber. People think he sounds like a girl, yet they don't think these guys sound like girls? Amy is my favorite becuz she actually pulled off the cute/smart personality of tails. Kate's sounds too stressed, inconsistent and boring. Its like he's not a kid anymore...

I think that Corey and Connor are tied for my favourites. Bradley Pierce and Christopher Evan Welch were also splendid, and tied second. Amy Palant is third. I never thought she was a bad Tails, but the other four go ahead because, of course, they sound more realistic.

Christopher Turner goes fourth, William Corkery is fifth, Kate Higgins is sixth, and Lainie Fraiser is seventh. Admittedly, Kate's Tails is growing on me, but I still think it sounds like she's trying too hard.

After playing through SA2 again, I think Connor is slightly better and the winner. Sounded a notch younger than his brother, and his acting was a little better. It's really close, though. They both played Tails at the time when he was developing as a character, so both were especially lovable.

Well, Corey and Connor sound identical. And they're both pretty good. Amy Palant is okay, but not my favorite, Corey and Connor tie for that. Kate Higgins is good (the player isn't working, but I've played Sonic Colors), she really sounds like a boy. Even though Tails is supposedly ten right now, Kate's voice is a little bit older then ten. He sounds like a teenager.

@amt No, there really are child voice actors who are very competent with their work, such as Zach Tyler Eisen in his role as Aang from the A:TLA series. True, some of these child actors such as Corey can't act very well, and that's 50% of voice acting (which is why SEGA stopped and just went with women), but there are honorable young VAs such as Eisen who would definitely be fitting of roles such as Tails.

P.S. Leave it up to SEGA to mess up Sonic even further, as if they haven't killed the series already...

It's amazing how many voice actors have come and gone for Tails.

Personally, I like Kate Higgins the most. Amy Palant comes in second. Those are probably... my only favorites.

Allow me to explain: Amy Palant brought out the gentle and caring side of Tails. Yes, we all know that the twin tailed fox is no doubt a mechanical genius. However, he is also kind and caring. I believe they even stated "heart of gold" in the Sonic Riders manual.

On the other hand, Kate Higgins brings out a more boyish nature. No doubt she's a good voice actress... Even though Higgins is probably my all-time favorite so far, I'm running out of things to say about Tails ^^;

@jared XD Some of these actors had good voices, but the problem with getting child actors such as corey, is that they cant act, and thats 50% of voice acting. Which why they stopped and just went with women. Ill admit, kate sounds a tad more husky, not really boyish cuz she still makes him sound girly (even more so than Amy did in some places) but she also makes him sound boring, un-child-like and have u heard her laugh as tails? Its pretty bad, she did like 3 times in the game and they all sound weird. She focuses on sounding like a boy so she tries to avoid sounding like a girl which makes tails' laughing sound fake

said at 8:43 PM on Wed Apr 4 2012
@AMT Maybe SEGA should get a female voice actor who voices little boys. The reason for that is because they have more experience in it. Kate Higgins doesn't have much experience. I mean she has only done one or two young boy roles. Two or three counting Tails. That's still not enough. For a female to voice a young boy, they have to be use to it. That way they can sound really good and with no problems.

People, people, stop trying to say what voice fits better for Tails! Ironically, he's eight years old in the storylines so stop comprehending and see the truth for what it is! Reasons why:

1. This is like the Dub vs. Sub war in anime, which makes me angry to no end!
2. A voice doesn't have to be good or bad, it just needs to be a voice actor that shows the emotions and spirit

@purplewarrior whenever a woman is voicing a boy thers always at least one instant you can tell its a woman, as you can tell the woman voice actors for tails are different from the actually younger boy actors.

And its not really that Amy sounded like a girl, its more as if she accuentuated the fact that Tails sounds more geekish, which is heavily portrayed recently. If you listen closely, you can tell both Amy and Kate are women voicing Tails and they both sound nerdish from wat Iv heard so far. Theyre really not much different if you listen unbiasly

...there is seriously something wrong when Amy Palant is at the top of the list.

There are some actresses that can pull off a boy voice, but Amy is not one of them. Not only can she NOT sound like a boy, she can't even sound like a child. If they wanted a 4Kids actress to voice Tails, they should had gone with Erica Schroeder or Veronica Taylor, or even Amy Birnbaum. You know, someone who actually COULD sound like a boy.

I'm personally VERY glad Amy is no longer the voice of Tails, and wish Kate Higgins the best of luck with the character. Amy pretty much ruined for me for a long time what was my favorite Sonic character with her soulless, non-child sounding voice work.

but for the meantime, Corey Bringas and then Bradley Pierce for best Tails voices. Amy should be at the bottom alongside Lainie Fraser.
