have you ever taken a rope or string and spun the end of it like fan or rotor blades? tail's tails could "spin" using the same principal without needing a pivoting joint.

I was playing sonic while watching this video 😂

• July 16, 2019 at 12:46 pm

MatPat…. naturally Tails would weigh more than a normal fox…. he's an 8-year-old Anthropormorphic yellow fox.

Also, stop applying logic to the Sonic series. I learned that long ago.

Wait a second… Just wanted to double check something. You took Tails' weight of 20 kilograms and multiplied by the force of gravity.
Did you need his 'Weight' or his 'Mass'?

I've always understood (correct me if I'm wrong) that your weight was your mass multiplied by the effect of gravity. It's why your weight on Jupiter would be different than on Earth, but your mass would be the same.

If you needed his mass but used the 20kg, that calculation of 20 multiplied by 9.8 would essentially be his mass multiplied by 9.8 twice.

Wow your trying hard to prove tails can't fly,are you sure you did'nt miss anything?

• July 21, 2019 at 6:06 pm

Well tailes isn't real so physics don't really have to affect him so he could fly without the tale blade if the creator saids he can so this was a waste of time but entertaining

• July 21, 2019 at 8:09 pm

what if one tail spines clockwise and the other anti clockwise?

• July 22, 2019 at 5:45 pm

I have a question now we know you said sonic isnt as fast as they say he is but lets say he is and the boosting in the modern games makes him faster exactly how fast would that be and would it be deadly to him?

my god this dude is cringy, it's been years since I last saw a video of his and he's still using that picture of him holding his chin as a meme (except he's using it so much in this video it's almost reached the point of self obsession), guess there was a reason why I haven't watched this anymore

• July 24, 2019 at 8:06 pm

If Tails has some magic butt pivot, wouldn’t that magic allow him to fly?

• July 24, 2019 at 9:12 pm

When he said "miles per hour" I thought he said "miles prower"

• July 25, 2019 at 11:49 pm

You forgot to mention, Tails has another friend called Cream the Rabbit. She can fly with her ears, but I’m pretty sure she can’t go as high as Tails.

Which fox is better Foxy from Five Nights at Freddy's or Tails from Sonic boo

• July 26, 2019 at 9:58 am

What if he uses one tail for flying and the other is used for control 🤔

• July 26, 2019 at 1:02 pm

Wouldn't this mean that every time Tails flies he is ripping his own body apart? If his tails spinning one way means his body spins the other, and you know, screws tell us that if two attached devices go the opposite direction, they detach.

• July 26, 2019 at 1:24 pm

can you explain how rose(black pink) turning her hand not trying to be rude, your theory is true but tails could have that

• July 27, 2019 at 3:47 am

see there's one thing you didn't catch matpat, is that what if tail's left tail is going left and tail's right tail is going right? I've finally beat you matpat >:D

• July 27, 2019 at 5:20 pm

what if one of tails tails is spining twice as fast,and the other is the counter acting proppeler so he can fly

• July 28, 2019 at 2:10 am

i'm wondering how does tails survive the plane crashes?

tails has 2 tails so why would he not be able to use one as a counter roter

• July 30, 2019 at 5:49 pm

So I get that you're saying about Trails needing a second rotor to counteract the habit of autorotation in helicopters (the counter-spin if the body relative to the rotor). My idea centers around the concept of coaxial-rotor helicopters that have two counter-rotating sets of rotors on a single mast. No need for a tail rotor because the spin of the second rotor in the opposite direction to the first counteracts the force of the other. It's less stable than a traditional rotor arrangement, but it offers far superior maneuverability and speed. So… if Tails does function as a helicopter and can spin his tails that fast, would it not be possible for his twin tails to counter-rotate as a coaxial rotor helicopter would? After all, we don't ever see the direction of the individual tails, just a blur that indicates they're spinning…

I feel like you are focusing on the wrong flying character here I always felt there was some explanation for tails but meanwhile cream never made sense her ears can make her fly and it’s just weird because how do those small things hold her up

• August 2, 2019 at 3:57 pm

He's a kitsune. He doesn't have to abide by the laws of reality.

• August 2, 2019 at 10:24 pm

There is a helicopter that has no tail rotor called a K-MAX. It is a very funky looking helicopter and thin as well. It has 2 blades spinning at an angle. Still with tails only spinning both tails the same way as in the game he could not fly. Maybe if it was more like how the K-MAX then it would be a maybe.

• August 3, 2019 at 4:34 pm

Amy's Hammer.

• August 3, 2019 at 10:55 pm

what if his tails spun in different directions?

• August 4, 2019 at 3:31 am

I think Tails should quit his flying planes job

He just builds planes to crash them over and over

• August 4, 2019 at 5:26 am

• August 6, 2019 at 2:14 am

What if one of his tales spins in one direction and the other spins in another? Would this make sense?

• August 6, 2019 at 11:43 am

He built the tails into himself so he can fly because of science.

What if he spun 1 tail in each direction would that not fix the spinning?

• August 8, 2019 at 8:08 am

Hey MatPat you didn't not mention that Miles Prower practice his tails for years, that makes him a little bit of weight. Have you even noticed Miles Prower can still fly even though he is still a child since he was created, also have you noticed that Miles Prower practice his tail for 18 years?

• August 8, 2019 at 9:20 pm

I have a theory tails can't die so when sonic dies he respawns so does time reset to when you hit the last check point A-does the checkpoint control time B-when sonic dies does time reset C-can tails die

• August 9, 2019 at 11:06 pm

if tails can make a paperclip TV he can fly like a helicopter matpat it dosent take even science to know that

• August 10, 2019 at 4:25 am

MatPat, if you see this comment:

I did the research, and on the low end, helicopter blades are 40 ft long. Multiply this by pi for the circumference, and then by 60 for feet per minute. Then for Miles per Hour, divide this by 5280, and you get that a small helicopter blade spins at approximately 14.3 miles per hour. Tales has, on the low end, 1343 MPH…

Now divide this by 2 for the average for 1 tail, which will be 671.5 MPH. For one tail. And he has 2. He has more than enough Miles per Hour per tail to have one act as a front propeller and one as a back, especially since in both cases his tails AT LEAST are as long as his body…

Please reply if you have a reason why this is wrong, I am no university head scientist, so please correct me so I can see what I did wrong. Also, I only did the calculations for Classic Tails, the faster of the two, then later found out it even works for Modern Tails. So, MatPat, if you see this, and it turns out to be right…
