* A common enemy in ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' stories (sometimes on stagecoaches, sometimes on trains), and ripe for parody. One example started practicing his speech ("Halt! ... Not loud enough... Halt! ...Not energetic enough..."), not realizing the stagecoach uphill had dislodged a big boulder and was waiting for it to stop before moving on ("[[OhCrap HALT! HALT!]]"


Added DiffLines:

** It's also mentioned that any highwayman holding up dwarves with the line "Your money or your life!" had best bring a book and packed lunch [[TheMiser while the debate rages on.]]

* 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.
