The Lunar Fox is a single-seater rocket ship built by Tails in Sonic the Fighters. One of his earliest forays into the realm of mechanical genius, the Lunar Fox is the heroes' only way of getting up to the orbiting Death Egg II and stopping Dr. Eggman's latest diabolical plan.
The limitations of the Lunar Fox - that is, its single-character capacity, and requirement of eight Chaos Emeralds for power - means that the heroes stage a fighting tournament to gather the gems and decide who gets to save the world. The first eight arenas of Sonic the Fighters see the playable characters battle it out for the seat on the rocket. Launching from just outside Tails' Workshop, the rocket conveys the tournament winner to the Death Egg II, and back after the station explodes.
