Bandit blade 5

The Bandit Blade is a Water-elemental cat toy available for NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Bandit Blade is a large silver knife with a slightly curved cutting edge and a faint bubble design near the base of the blade. It has a dark blue hilt with lighter blue rectangular blocks for its handguard and pommel. Its off-hand item is a tan money bag with a red "$" sign on the front of it; the bag is tied off with a red rope capped off with a golden material.

Normal

The Bandit Blade boasts solid offensive stats, a good boost to Evade, and added punch for NoLegs's Water skills. However, it is more notable because of its other abilities: it has a chance to grant Haste between turns, and it lets NoLegs steal items with certain weapon-elemental skills. While the former is inconsistent and the latter is only useful for farming, these abilities give the Bandit Blade great utility potential.

Compared to the Turtle Shell, its fellow Water-based cat toy, the Bandit Blade has less Attack and defensive bulk, as well as more inconsistent bonuses. As an offensive weapon, it is also directly inferior to the Honjo Masamune, which has better offenses even without a Water boost. On the other hand, the Bandit Blade's auto-Haste and superior Evade can make NoLegs quite effective in many roles if you don't mind the luck involved. Additionally, it can be acquired much earlier than either of its competitors - especially the Turtle Shell, which isn't available until the party reaches Redpine Town.

The Bandit Blade provides resistances to Wind, Stun, Confuse and Stagger. It becomes immune to all but the first at Level 5.

The Alt Bandit Blade offers great Evade and Accuracy, but has below-average Attack and terrible Magic Attack. It boosts Water skills and enables NoLegs to steal items; it can also counter with a Normal Attack and has a small chance to summon CORALIA between turns. The summon gives a great Evade buff, but has a low chance of occurring.

Keep in mind that the Alt Honjo Masamune is generally a far more consistent option for an "Evade tank" NoLegs, regardless of the HP drop.

The Alt Bandit Blade resists Bomb, Water, Death, and Doom, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.
