Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Bandersnatch is a lion-like enemy and easily missed by those seeking to fill up the Advance version's Bestiary section, it appears in the first world on the grass patches around the Torna Canal's entrance. Often confronting the player as a trio, Bandersnatches make an excellent source of early ABP.
Bandersnatch in Final Fantasy VII is encountered on the world map near Icicle Inn. They only use physical attacks and are not a threat, although they can revive dead Bandersnatch enemies with their Howling ability; no extra EXP or gil is earned from killing them again.
