the Tails Doll

The first and most unique title to appear on this list is none other than the Tails Doll. Or more specifically, the curse of the Tails Doll. Some of you may know the Tails Doll simply as a cute little plush rendition of Tails that was an unlockable character from the game Sonic R, but to some people he is much more. "Why is this myth unique?" You may wonder. Well the Myth of the Tails Doll doesn't unlock any secret stages, or erase your games's saved data. No, the Tails Doll is much more notorious for grisly murder and the stealing of souls. There have been many accounts of the death of friends or family members that have started appearing on the internet since the myth first made itself know. So many, in fact, that you can find 12 volumes of stories here.

To summon the Tails Doll, you must do one of three things.

-Complete Sonic R 100%

-Tag Super Sonic With the Tails Doll (Gamecube version only)

-Go into a pitch black bathroom and sing/listen to Living in the City or Can you feel the sunshine? ACID mix backwards.

Simply getting 100% on Sonic R will cause the Tails Doll to slowly reveal himself to you with bad luck or creepy occurances, usually leading to death and the stealing of your soul. The second two however usually result in him slowly coming out of the screen or mirror, also to kill you and steal your soul. Some lucky few survive, but are still damned. After unlocking him, anyone who plays as him will also be cursed.
Usually, stories tell of him having no weapon, and that his only motive is killing you or anyone that gets in his way.
In the Gamecube version, it is said that Miyamoto put a seal on the game to prevent the summoning of the Tails Doll. However, by tagging Super Sonic, the Tails Doll absorbs the power of the Chaos Emeralds and is powerful enough to break the seal.

My thoughts:
It amazes me that some people actually believe this nonsense. The internet has made a name for itself making up stuff like this, and will use even cute little characters such as the Tails Doll in an attempt to scare whoever is unfortunate enough to read about it. Even more rediculous is the alleged ways of summoning him. The first, getting 100% on the game, is something I'm sure millions of people worldwide have done and faced no untimely demise. The second is even more insane, and borderline accuses Shigeru Miyamoto of witchcraft, and the third is just a bad Bloody Mary knock-off. Overall, I think this myth is just an outlet for scary stories, and I'll admit, after a few you'll have trouble sleeping at night.
