Wes Weasely's the name! Selling's the game!
— Wes Weasely, "Birth of a Salesman"
Wes Weasely is a character that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. He is a salesman of the H.D.S.V.A.D.L. (Handy Dandy Super Villain Appliance Distributors (Limited Company), though he would often represent other companies as well.
Wes Weasely frequently makes deals with Dr. Robotnik to catch Sonic the Hedgehog, offering him the latest products in high tech weaponry and machines. Despite the fact Weasley's products perform exactly as advertised, the plans involving them often fail either due to Sonic's ingenuity or Scratch and Grounder's incompetence.
Robotnik despises Wes due to his products ultimately failing to catch Sonic. However, his minions continue to purchase from him, despite all the trouble that usually coincide with the products. One time, Coconuts went on a shopping spree and forwarded all of the payments to Robotnik without his knowing, which resulted in Robotnik's wrath upon discovering the deception.
Wes is not above selling phony products, at one point attempting to sell an entire shelf of blank encyclopedias.
On one occasion, Weasely pretended to be limo-jacked by Scratch and Grounder and hosted a Hero of the Year ceremony for Sonic so that Dr. Robotnik could capture him, all for a Shopping Channel. Upon discovering Robotnik had in fact swindled him by leaving him unable to air said channel, as well as their contract being written in disappearing ink, Weasely sabotaged Robotnik's plan by freeing Sonic, declaring he was done working for villains.
Wes Weasely is energetic and charming, but also an unscrupulous salesman, who does not really care who he sells to as long as he makes money. Though he claims to stand by his products, he is quick to leave if things start going wrong. He acts like a quick-talking salesman, often speaking in double-talk and constantly over-selling his products, some of which work, others of which do not, all to his knowledge. He feels no remorse for selling to villains or working against villains with Sonic, his side is the side that benefits him the most and gives him the least danger.
