Wally Dithers from Sonic the Comic #120. Black and white art by Bob Corona and colour by Nigel Dobbyn.

Wally Dithers is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is an anthropomorphic hyena and member of D.R.A.T., the Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe. He wears a light blue shirt with a white collar, dark blue tie, and brown pinstripe suit. He has red eyes.


Wally Dithers ran a "Centre for the Undecided" in the Emerald Hill Zone for people who couldn't make up their minds, promising to make them more assertive. However, when a group of Emerald Hill Folk arrived for help picking their New Year's resolutions, he used their indecisiveness to convince them to resolve to destroy Sonic the Hedgehog. When they hesitated, he accused them of cowardice and talked them into it.

This was all part of a D.R.A.T. plot, and Dithers was working with the Grand Chief Whip to destroy the Control Centre that housed the Kintobor Computer. While Sonic was distracted by dealing with the mob of Emerald Hill Folk, Dithers and the Grand Chief Whip drove a tank up to the Control Centre in order to destroy it. However, Sonic saw through the ruse and rushed back to the village. Grand Chief Whip ordered Dithers to destroy Sonic using the tank's firepower, but Dithers couldn't decide whether to use the Proplasmic Energon Blaster or the Electrobolt Pulsar Pumper, giving Sonic enough time to destroy the tank completely.

Dithers was last seen lying in the snow next to the destroyed tank, seeing stars.[1]
