That's a Badge Bandit. He's a Bandit who'll go after your badges. That jerk! Max HP is 12, Attack is 5, and Defense is 0. He has high Attack power and HP. He sometimes steals a badge when he tackles you, so use your Guard carefully. And even if he gets one, keep your cool, OK? If he runs from the battle, you can always find him and reengage him.


A Badge Bandit is a purple-colored Bandit that can only be found in the Pit of 100 Trials during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Unlike other Bandits, these thieves can steal Badges, as well as items and coins. Stolen badges can be recovered by using Ms. Mowz's Kiss Thief move, or by beating the Badge Bandit - the badge will then reappear on the screen to be picked up. If a Badge Bandit manages to run away with a badge, the battle must be refought to reclaim the badge. Mario can use a Volt Shroom, a Boo's Sheet, or Vivian's Veil to temporarily safeguard his precious badges during the fight; the Zap Tap Badge, as with other Bandits, makes Mario immune to their plundering. The plumber can also protect himself by consistently guarding or superguarding the attacks of these Bandits.

If Mario does not reclaim a stolen badge after one of the Bandits steals it, he will have to fight them all again until they get the badge back.
