For pages with a similar name, see Bandit (Disambiguation) .

An enemy that can be found all across the world. This annoying foe will try to steal your cents, but it can be dodged easily with a well-timed jump.

Overview

The Bandit is the first enemy encountered in the game and can be encountered in several later areas too. They are the most basic form of enemies in the game.

Like all enemies, corrupted variants of Bandits can be encountered when the player is equal to the area level and appear more often the higher level they are.

Items

Strategy

Fighting Bandits is a relatively simple task, but they can be a bit of a struggle for new players learning the controls.

Bandits can appear in groups of one to four alongside other Bandits and later with Burglars in the Hidden Woods. They will occasionally use Hot Sauce , Juice and Chicken Wings to stay in the fight, but their attacks are predictable and easy to dodge, making them good for new players to practice on. Multiple bandits can easily be dealt with using heavy area-of-effect skills such as Fiery Explosion or Giant Crowbar when they are learned later on in the game.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 1 Bandits, they are comparable to that of a Burglar in raw stats, with the difference being that Health is 10 rather than 7. Dull Rapier can finish it off on turn two. Barraging them is also an easy finish as they only have DEF.png1 defense at Corruption 1.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ Bandits, they gain Savage Hit which has DEF.png1 defense piercing and can Stun.pngstun the player for 2 turns making the battle longer.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 3 Bandits will gain Barrage, a mostly unavoidable attack which can be a serious threat against even skilled players without at least 2 DEF.pngDefense. Even if the initial blow can be dodged or blocked, the rest of the punches will still hit for POW.pnghigh damage.

Trivia
