Witchcart (ウィチカート Wichikāto?) is the main antagonist and final boss of Tails' Skypatrol. She is an elderly human witch who rode around in a specialized rail cart on an island she claimed as her own.
Having arrived on an island with her henchmen, Witchcart was riding around in her rail cart while claiming the island as her own and threatening to turn any dissenters into crystal. She then called upon her henchmen Hocke-Wulf, Bearenger, and Carrottia, as well as an army of robots, to assist in her evil scheme.
However, Witchcart soon found herself threatened by Miles "Tails" Prower who had set out to free the island and its inhabitants from her tyranny. After being defeated by Tails, Witchcart was hauled up out of her destroyed rail cart by the fox and flown away. She has not been seen since.
Witchcart is fought at the end of Dark Castle. Unlike the other bosses, Witchcart does not use a flying vehicle, but instead rides a rail cart which is similar to regular in-game objects called Trucks.
Reaching Witchcart may be risky as the player has to avoid touching the ground and as well as the ceiling while attacking her. Witchcart continuously throws small bombs and fires magical energy blasts, which the player can dispatch by using Tails's Boomering which grants a hundred points each.
Like many of the previous boss battles, the player has to land twenty hits or use the Tails' Ring to toss Witchcart into the ground four times to defeat her.

- Witchcart has several inconsistencies between her in-game design and that shown in the box artwork for Tails' Skypatrol. In the box artwork, her white hair has been interpreted as a white brim on her hat, while the red underside of her hat's brim has been interpreted as what appears to be a lock of red hair. Her rail cart also sports a more simplistic design.
