The Thief is an enemy in Gauntlet. In the game, he would steal potions from the player.
The Thief appears on Defender and steals the foundation element of the Midway Arcade universe: the Gold Token from Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle. The trio follows him and finds themselves in Gauntlet. After completing several mazes, they are then sent to Super Sprint. Once there, the Thief challenges them to a series of races. The heroes succeed, but the Thief once again steals the coin and the heroes chase after him once more to Robotron: 2084, when they finally catch and defeat him. He is later transported back to Foundation Prime, where he is crushed by an angry Lord Vortech.
- His hood is the same piece Wyldstyle uses (in one set) but re-colored.
- Although there is a piece which portrays a bag, his bag is just printed on.
- The printed bag is the exact same as the bag printed on Sam's torso
- His line, "Hahaha, you can't catch me!" is taken straight from the original Gauntlet game via Archive Audio.
- The Thief, along with many other characters from Year 1, make cameo appearances in the Ghostbusters (2016) Story Pack cutscenes.
- The Thief is the only enemy in the Midway series to be affiliated with Lord Vortech and one of the few Midway characters to appear in the Main Story.
