The Gopher Highwayman is a character mentioned in the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is the subject of a ghost story that Sonic told to Tails.


According to the tale, the highwayman had his head cut off, and now wanders as a ghost with a gold medallion. This story frightened Tails so much that he began to believe the Gopher Highwayman was real. This was exacerbated when Antoine was afflicted with a type of weed that made him glow in the dark. Eventually, Tails came to realize that the Gopher Highwayman was not real. However, he then found the gold medallion from the story.
