Depiction in the series

Thugs surrounding A.K. Yearling S4E04
Biff, Rogue, and Withers first appear in the season four episode Daring Don't. They are first seen invading Daring Do's forest home and fighting her for the Ring of Destiny. When Rainbow Dash accidentally distracts Daring Do, the henchponies overpower her, and Dr. Caballeron seizes the Ring of Destiny from her.

When Caballeron and the henchponies are later approached by Daring Do in disguise, they prepare to sell the Ring of Destiny to her for a large amount of bits, but Ahuizotl arrives and scares them off.

Biff, Rogue, and Withers also appear in the season six episode Stranger Than Fan Fiction alongside "Pickpocket". They capture Rainbow Dash and Quibble Pants on multiple occasions, though the latter ensures their escape each time either by deceiving the crooks or setting off an ancient booby trap.

In season seven, Biff, Rogue, Withers, and Pickpocket appear in Daring Done? They once again capture Rainbow Dash and try to make off with Somnambula's collection of priceless glowpaz, but Daring Do, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie thwart their schemes.

In season nine, Biff, Rogue, and Withers appear in Daring Doubt accompanying Dr. Caballeron and Fluttershy to the Tenochtitlan Basin in search of the Truth Talisman of Tonatiuh. Like Caballeron, the henchponies are surprised and impressed by Fluttershy's kindness and ability to tame ferocious animals. Toward the end of the episode, Rogue (while under the influence of the Truth Talisman) annouces that he is quitting his henchpony job to pursue his dream of being an opera singer.

In the chapter book Daring Do and the Eternal Flower, Outlaw (implied to be Biff but unidentified), Rogue, and Withers appear again as Dr. Caballeron's henchponies. They ambush Daring Do at a dinner party hosted by the Equestrian Botanical Society, but she eventually overcomes them. Later, she meets Caballeron's fourth henchpony: a freelance adventurer Pegasus named Rosy Thorn.

Rosy Thorn briefly teams up with Daring Do to rescue Daring's uncle Gallant True from Ahuizotl. However, she is later revealed to be one of Ahuizotl's partners, and she betrays Daring in order to get her to lead them to the Eternal Flower.

Withers appears again in Daring Do and the Forbidden City of Clouds. He breaks into A. B. Ravenhoof's house in search of information about Cirrostrata, an invisible city in the sky.
