Captain Whisker (ウィスカー船長 Uisukā Senchou?) is a villainous robotic pirate who appeared in Sonic Rush Adventure, in which he initially seems to be the main antagonist. He was created by Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega, whom he greatly resembles, and resides in Blaze the Cat's home dimension.
Whisker and his band of pirates (Johnny, Mini, and Mum) are out to cause havoc on the seas, and intend to use an ancient artifact called the Jeweled Scepter to awaken an unnamed entity, and use its power to conquer. However, despite their claims, the pirates are not very intimidating, and are generally clownish and bumbling (possibly a reference to the comical villains from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog); he also always forgets about Sonic and others. Despite this, Whisker is an incredible force in battle as seen in his boss battle in Pirates' Island: he can breathe fire, manifest saws, shoot his fists like boomerangs and use inducing ground pounds. He takes a special dislike of any characters who have pulled on his "whiskers", at least when either Mini or Mum remind him. He also tends to talk too much, usually giving away important information like how to unlock the door in the undersea cavern.
Captain Whisker's fate after the Ghost Titan fight is unknown, although it is possible he was destroyed along with the Ghost Titan or sunk along with the Big Swell (as implied by Blaze's line about the Jeweled Scepter, which was in Whiskers's possession before Marine took it, "It probably sank along with the pirates.")
- In the Archie Comics, Blaze calls him Captain Whiskers instead of Captain Whisker.
- Whisker refers to himself at one point as "The Dread Pirate Whisker". This is a reference to the movie, The Princess Bride, in which a character called "the Dread Pirate Roberts" is referred to.
