That's a Big Bandit. Basically, a boss among ordinary Bandits. Max HP is 8, Attack is 3, and Defense is 0. Unlike other Bandits, he'll steal your items as well as your coins. Totally weak! If you guard well when he charges at you, he'll blow by without stealing anything. If he robs you, you won't get your item back unless you beat him right then. He'll run!

Tattle Log #:

Big Bandits are green-colored Bandits that appeared in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The only two Big Bandits seen in the game appear in the Glitz Pit, of which one is named Bandy Andy. Big Bandits, like regular Bandits, can steal coins. However, the Big Bandit has one major difference from other Bandits - the Big Bandit has the ability to steal items as well. Contrary to their name, Big Bandits are not physically larger than ordinary Bandits. Instead, Big Bandits are actually Bandit leaders, or big "bosses". If a Big Bandit steals one of Mario's items, the only way to get it back is to use Ms. Mowz to steal it back in the GameCube version. This is because, since the only encounter with Big Bandits is in the Glitz Pit, nothing can be picked up after the battle ends. Unlike regular Bandits and the much stronger Badge Bandits, Big Bandits do not appear in the Pit of 100 Trials.

In the Nintendo Switch remake, defeating a Big Bandit after it has stolen an item (before it runs away) will recover the item.
