Sonic the Hedgehog

Walters at a meeting in the Pentagon, from Sonic the Hedgehog (film).

Following a huge power blackout across the Pacific Northwest due to an electromagnetic pulse, Walters would attend an emergency meeting with other top officials at the Pentagon to discuss the incident. Recognizing that they were out of choices and needed additional help to investigate the incident when they were unable to figure out what caused it, Walters convinced the officials that they needed Dr. Robotnik's help, given his familiarity with technology and perfect operations record, despite admitting with the others that the doctor was quite eccentric.

After Robotnik was defeated by Sonic and banished to the Mushroom Planet, Walters personally showed up at Tom and Maddie Wachowski's house in Green Hills, where he gave them a $50 gift card for the Olive Garden restaurant as a thank you from the government to the couple for keeping quiet about the incident involving Sonic and Robotnik. When Tom brought up Robotnik however, Walters claimed that no such person had ever existed. Walters then tried getting Sonic's whereabouts from the Wachowskis in hopes that he could get Sonic to attend a meeting with the President. However, the Wachowskis claimed not to know where Sonic was and politely bit him goodbye as they closed their door in front of Walters, who tried peaking inside their house.


Commander Walters is a serious, yet calm man with some dry humor who holds a position of great trust in the United States Armed Forces. Somewhat of a risk-taker when there are no other options available, he was willing to call in Dr. Robotnik to help investigate an electromagnetic pulse of unknown origin despite the concerns of his comrades. However, he is not a stern individual, and was very friendly and warm with Tom and Maddie. He can be a bit awkward though, as he tried a little too hard to keep them from closing their front door.
