Trivia[]

  • Flailtail is a confirmed reference to the character Alphonse Elric from the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise.[1]
    • His Hero Book entry about smaller cats crawling into his armor mirrors Alphonse's tendency to stash small kitties in his armor.
    • His lines about forbidden alchemy, wanting his body back, and his brother giving him a second chance are all references to the forbidden failed experiment that caused Alphonse to lose his body and to the subsequent alchemical binding of his soul to a suit of armor by his older brother, Edward Elric.
      • That Flailtail is an Alchemy cat and the description attached to his egg, "Fuse Embers and bind their power to a suit of armor," also refer to Alphonse's backstory, especially since Embers were, upon introduction, called "Cat Souls".
    • Flailtail's appearance is similar to Alphonse's.
      • Their suits of armor are similar in color.
      • The purple paw on the shoulder of his Rank 4 outfit might be alluding to the Flamel on the left shoulder Alphonse's armor.
      • The spike atop Flailtail's head is reminiscent of the horn on Alphonse's helmet.
      • The high collar of Flailtail's Rank 2 and 4 outfits is similar to the one on Alphonse's armor.
      • The twin spikes that come out of the Metal Egg and Flailtail's front and hind legs are like the triple spikes that line Alphonse's armor in certain places.
    • Edward most likely represents Edward Elric, however he and Edward are not brothers.[2]
  • His name likely comes from the fact that he has a flail... for a tail.
