|~ Wade standing up to Robotnik when he was about to kill his best friend Tom|

Wade is portrayed by Adam Pally.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Wade Whipple is a Deputy Sheriff working under Tom Wachowski. He usually sits in the office while Tom goes on patrol. While on the run from the mad scientist Dr. Robotnik, after helping Sonic the Hedgehog escape from authorities, Tom calls Wade in a phone booth while the latter happens to be surrounded by government agents. Wade tries to subtly warn Tom about the agents when Robotnik yanks the phone from him to threaten Wachowski before leaving the office to continue his pursuit. Wade claims that he will tell everyone about what had just transpired.
Near the end of the film, where Dr. Robotnik was about to eliminate Tom and his wife Maddie in the middle of Downtown Green Hills after severely wounding Sonic, Wade fires a warning shot at Robotnik and rallies the citizens of Green Hills to stand against the doctor, although he later tries to get Crazy Carl to put down a chainsaw. When Sonic wakes up after Tom stated that he was his friend, Wade, along with Tom, Maddie, Carl, and every other resident, take cover as Sonic deals with Robotnik by damaging his aircraft and sending him to the mushroom planet with Tom's help. Afterwards, Wade continued to work alongside Tom when the Wachowskis decided to stay in Green Hills instead of moving to San Francisco.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
During Tom and Maddie's trip to Hawaii, Wade is made acting Sheriff of Green Hills in his superior's absence. He is visited by Sonic and Tails at his house when they needed a place to lie low while Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles the Echidna search for them. Inside Wade's house, Sonic activates a hologram of Longclaw that informs him and Tails about the Master Emerald while Wade asks if the owl was Tails' mother.
Sometime later, Wade stops by the Mean Bean Cafe while on duty and finds it odd that it was closed early. He manages to take a peek inside and discovers that it was a front for Robotnik's secret base. Wade barges through the cafe door branching his gun and cuffs Agent Stone to a chair to interrogate him. Unfortunately, the interrogation does not go well, but Wade alerts G.U.N. of his discovery before Robotnik suddenly returns to the cafe wielding the Master Emerald's power. Unable to stop Robotnik in his new form, Wade is cuffed in Agent Stone's place as G.U.N. military surrounded the location outside. Although he is not seen again after this, it is likely he uncuffed by authorities.
