* PatriciaCWrede's ''Literature/MairelonTheMagician'' had a self-styled druid of dubious competence attempting to rob a coach filled with ''professional'' criminals in an effort to get his hands on an enchanted platter he wanted to use for a ritual (which the people in the coach didn't even have). He fails miserably.

** In the third series, Blackadder himself becomes a highwayman due to financial difficulties. One of the people he robs has a daughter who'd happily entertain the idea of being seduced by a dashing highwayman, but Blackadder isn't interested. Also featured is The Shadow, who gets the JustLikeRobinHood treatment from the population at large. The Shadow turns out to be a) a highway''[[SamusIsAGirl woman]]''; and b) the [[spoiler: same person who the prince regent is preparing to marry]].

Added DiffLines:

* Highwayman is one of the unit classes in ''VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth''. In contrast to the romantic image of a highwayman, they are the level 3 promotion of the Thug unit and are a rough-looking man on foot armed with a heavy mace.
