Halo 3?[edit]

Why is there an image of a Halo 3 era marine in this article? As far as I know, Butkus doesn't appear in Halo 3. Blobfish N16 (talk) 04:33, March 12, 2019 (EDT)

I wouldn't consider this evidence enough to suggest the character is also in Halo 3 or that this marine is the same character. Otherwise we'd also have to say Buck was because Nathan Fillion voices a marine in one mission. I'd say keep it as a note about the voice actor.. BaconShelf (talk) 06:28, March 12, 2019 (EDT)

That only means he was the voice and model of the character. It does nothing to suggest that this one marine is the same character as the ODST from the Halo 2 short. Unless something explicitly states that marine is canonically this character, I don't think it's a good idea to state as fact. BaconShelf (talk) 06:55, March 12, 2019 (EDT)
