Rotor the Walrus is one of the main protagonists in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is an anthropomorphic walrus and a key member of the New Freedom Fighters, serving as one of their main inventors, usually working alongside fellow brilliant inventors Tailsand Professor Charles the Hedgehog to create the best tech they can for their friends and allies. Using his skills and knowledge of technology and mechanics he is able to provide the Freedom Fighters with an edge against the mad genius Dr. Eggman and his Eggman Empire. He usually acts as an informant, providing data and technological assistance when his team needs it.


Rotor is an anthropomorphic walrus and is generally larger than most of the other members of the New Freedom Fighters. He has violet fur with darker toes and fingers, peach skin on his front torso and muzzle, large tusks, and green eyes. He is slimmer and noticeably taller than his in his previous life. For attire he wears black and white shoes and yellow socks; he sports yellow gloves; and he also has yellow goggles. He also wears his signature green tool-belt across his shoulder. His appearance as a child mirrors that of his appearance from the Sonic the Hedgehog television series.

  • Rotor was the first of the New Freedom Fighters to have a new family member introduced in the new continuity, as Sally's father was based on a pre-existing character.
  • Ian Flynn has described Rotor as "a meat-and-potatoes type of guy, heavy on the fish" and "fueled by coffee."[29]
