You know you've hit rock bottom when you quit your job as an imperial guard and start throwing Wrenches at passers-by.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Bandit, or Repo Man, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI fought in the Narshe Mines in the beginning of the game. As this is the tutorial phase of the game, it is easy to defeat with the player's Magitek Armor.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Bandit has a 33% chance of countering any attack by using Wrench on itself. When killed, it will use Wrench on a random party member, dealing moderate damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is suggested that Terra uses Magitek to defeat it, as this stops it from using its final attack. By the time the player must face them without the Magitek Armor, Terra should be at a high-enough level to survive Wrench without taking too much damage.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Banditry is the life and practice of bandits. The New English Dictionary on Historical Principles (NED) defined "bandit" in 1885 as "one who is proscribed or outlawed; hence, a lawless desperate marauder, a brigand: usually applied to members of the organized gangs which infest the mountainous districts of Italy, Sicily, Spain, Greece, Iran, and Turkey.

A repo man is a repossession agent, a job that entails the retrieval of collateral or outstanding rented or leased objects.
