A Badge Bandit(JP) is a purple-colored Bandit that can only be found in the Pit of 100 Trials during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Unlike other Bandits, these thieves can steal Badges. Stolen Badges can be recovered by using Ms. Mowz's Kiss Thief move, or by beating the Badge Bandit - the Badge will then reappear on the screen to be picked up. If a Badge Bandit manages to run away with a Badge, the battle must be refought to reclaim the Badge. Mario should use a Boo's Sheet, a Volt Shroom or a Zap Tap Badge to stop Badge Bandits from stealing his hard-earned Badges. The plumber can also protect himself by consistently guarding or superguarding the attacks of these Bandits.
