I love how you people can still love Sonic and Tails and everyone involved in house of cards even tho they were made into complete assholes for the story but Tails' parents are completely unsalvageable and shouldve either had their skulls crushed or stayed away from their beloved son. Yeah these two characters responsible for Tails' life inuniverse and were written good before shouldve been tossed in the garbage disposal because of one bad story and couldnt be redeemed before the reboot.
The thing is, with most of those characters, they had good stories and moments that made up for that shitfest. Tails’ parents combined had like one good moment, one moment that made me think that they were worth shit. All they really did was add needless political drama to a comic that did not need political drama and did not handle it well in any sense of the word.
They, along with most of the game cast’s parents, really had no reason to exist other than the sake of existing, and yes, this extends to Sonic’s parents too. And Knuckles’. The only reason they were added was because Penders and co couldn’t wrap their heads around teenagers fighting someone like Robotnik without adult supervision and guidance. That’s it. That’s the big fucking reason.
