The Bandit (Japanese:
Bandits have similar stats to the earlier enemy-only axe classes, with very high strength and HP, as well as decent speed. However, not only do they suffer from the traditional poor skill stat of axe-wielding classes, which along with the low accuracy of axes gives them poor hit rates, but they are also affected by poor defense and resistance, with their high HP failing to do much to mitigate this. This makes them risky to fight carelessly but relatively easy to quickly damage and defeat.
In Path of Radiance Bandits are able to promote to the Berserker class, although since there are no playable Bandits the player cannot do this without hacking the game. In Radiant Dawn, they have no known promotion options, since the Berserker is not present in the game at all.
