Talk:Big Bandit

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Don't you get your item back if you defeat the Big Bandit before he runs away? -- Son of Suns

Can't remember really good, but I'm sure, that they run away with it. Bad bandit! Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions·) Paper Jorge was here at... 19:48, 15 September 2006 (EDT)

You get one turn, and if you beat them then, you get it back. Superchao 19:50, 15 September 2006 (EDT)
Same with the normal Bandit and Badge Bandit. If they are still alive when its turn comes again, it will run away. It's important to try to miss only one block, or you'll have to make a sacrifice – coin, item or badge. Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 21:15, 15 September 2006 (EDT)
Since you only fight them in the Glitz Pit, you can't get your items back unless you use Ms. Mowz to steal them back before the battle ends (obviously impossible during Chapter 3, as she's not available yet). Basically, when a Bandit of any type steals something and you kill it, the thing it stole will drop after the battle (although, in the case of coins, only 1 will drop even though you will have lost 5 or 10). However, in the Glitz Pit, you can't pick anything up at the end of the battle, so the items are gone forever. I learnt that the hard way. The best thing to do is not let them steal anything.
