* In WebAnimation/SilverQuill's "After the Fact: Amending Fences", upon seeing Pinkie Pie using her tail to fly (see the example in Western Animation below), the hippogriff gets jealous (part of a running gag about him taking a very long time to get a flying animation). So Silver Quill tries to copy Pinkie by spinning his own tail, but has no control over it and is sent flying backward.

* In the fanfic ''Fanfic/TailsOfTheOldRepublic'', a crossover/ FusionFic between ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and the videogame ''Franchise/StarWars: VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', Tails the fox has two tails like in the games and other media he regularly features in, and he can [[HeliCritter fly]] with them, [[BewareMyStingerTail fight]] with them, and even [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe shield]] himself with them. In here, he has two basic flight modes: a general-purpose 'helicopter mode' that has great versatility and a top speed of about 200 MPH, and a much faster and energy-intensive 'turbofan mode' (similar to a jet engine) that can propel him up to 600 MPH or higher.
