We describe a procedure that contributes to modify the asymptotic behavior of kinks in a model described by two real scalar fields. The investigation takes advantage of a first-order formalism based on energy minimization to unveil how to modify the asymptotic profile of kink-like configurations. In particular, we show that the exponential tails of standard kink-like configurations can be smoothly modified to engender long range, double exponential, half-compact or compact behavior.
