Bandits have appeared throughout the entire Fire Emblem series. With brutal axes, muscular bodies, and no shirt (at least in their battle sprites in the Fire Emblems for the Game Boy Advance), these barbarians are a sight to behold when they are caught burning down a village, or jumping in the air to perform their classic axe attack introduced in Fire Emblem: The Sealed Sword for the Game Boy Advance.
The Bandit will either jump into the air and then crash down, horizontally held axe first, dealing 22% damage with a very low knockback, or he will throw his axe forward a few feet, and then have it fall to the floor. Anyone hit by the hand axe will gain 14% damage with barely any knockback. If the hand axe doesn't hit anyone, it will fall to the ground and will be able to be used by any playable character on the stage.
