TV series

Season two

Dirk eventually answered Lupe's call and came to Knothole Village. There, he formed an alliance with the other Freedom Fighter groups to stop Dr. Robotnik's Doomsday Project.[2]

On night afterward, Drik came to Knothole when he received information from Sally that Dr. Robotnik had started the Doomsday Project. As a part of their plan to distract Robotnik, Dirk and Polo followed Ari and Lupe on Dulcy's back in a Hover Unit to the Doomsday Machine. Once above Robotnik's base, they proceeded to drop mannequins equipped with parachutes above the base to distract Robotnik's forces. Dirk and Polo later landed on the Doomsday Machine themselves, but were quickly detected and arrested by Swat-Bots. After Sonic and Sally used the power of the Deep Power Stones and began destroying the Doomsday Machine however, Dirk, Polo, Ari and Lupe escaped captivity and fled to a Hover Unit, which they used to fly away in. Afterward, they appeared in Knothole to celebrate the defeat of Dr. Robotnik.[1]


A true Freedom Fighter, Dirk is dedicated to the ideals and causes that he and his comrades are fighting for.[2] He is also disciplined and focused on his missions.[1]

Powers and abilities

As the leader of his Freedom Fighter group, Dirk presumably possesses some leadership qualities. He is also a capable pilot, being able to pilot Hover Units.[1]
