Fat Bandit

Kingdom Hearts
Heartless that mostly appear in Agrabah. They are well-balanced offensively and defensively. Besides strong physical attack, they use fire, and they block attacks against them. Their movement is their weakness.
Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories
A Heartless that mainly appears in Agrabah.
The Fat Bandit repels frontal attacks with its jiggly belly and spits fireballs.
Kingdom Hearts II
Immune to fire magic, it parries most attacks dealt from the front. Use the Rush attack from behind and defeat it with a combo attack.
Parry its fire bombs for a chance to unleash Full Swing!
Kingdom Hearts coded
Tubby tough guys who show up in Agrabah. These Heartless balance offense and defense, flinging fire one moment and belly-bouncing back your attacks the next. While formidable opponents, they are anything but fast, and leave themselves wide open if you know where to strike.
Kingdom Hearts Union χ
This big bandit boosts its own strength before unleashing a heavy-handed attack. Use special attacks to overcome its assault!

The Fat Bandit is an Emblem Heartless found in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts coded and Kingdom Hearts χ.

Design[edit]

"Fat Bandit" is the perfect name for these massive, essentially spherical Heartless. A cousin of the more svelte Bandit, Fat Bandits boast the blue skin, turbans, face masks, and curled-toe shoes of their skinnier counterparts. Their dress is stereotypically Arabian, in keeping with the area they tend to be seen most in, and is bright and colorful, probably to distinguish them from the similarly shaped but more muted Large Bodies. Fat Bandits are clad in an orange, pointy-shouldered vest trimmed in light yellow, light orange wristbands, a yellow sash, and bright green baggy pants, the warm colors serving as a warning of their Fire-based magic abilities.

In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Fat Bandits are colored completely differently from the originals; they feature grey skin, a light blue sash, dark blue pants, green wristbands, and a red vest trimmed in gold.

The Fat Bandit's name references the size of the Heartless's round, bloated body, and highlights its resemblance to Arabian thugs. Historically, bandits were outlaws that would commit crimes such as robbery or murder.

Strategy[edit]

Attacks
  • Flame Throw (火炎放射 Kaen Housha?): Blows long flame forward
  • Flame Shot (火炎弾 Kaendan?): Blows fireballs from its mouth
  • Fist of Light (光の拳 Hikari no Ken?): Low jump followed by double-fist swing
  • Fist of Flame (炎の拳 Honō no Ken?): Fiery punch creates shockwave

They are quite similar to Large Bodies, since damage to their front side is negated, but can attack with fire, by spitting it and breathing it. They can turn around much faster to protect their backsides, whereas the Large Body cannot. Because of their long range fire-based attacks, Fat Bandits are best attacked with magic from afar. However, Fire has no effect on them. The Fat Bandits also take damage from attacks to the head, and are very easy to attack when they turn around to charge up their attack that sends a wave of fire on the floor.

In Kingdom Hearts, if timed correctly, Sora can earn Tech Points for blocking the Fat Bandit's attacks.[3][4][5][6][7]

Notes and references[edit]

  1. The Fat Bandit drops (1) HP Ball x15, (5) HP Ball x1, (1) Munny x 2, (5) Munny x4, Elixir (4%), Blaze Gem (8%), and Firaga Ring (2%) if it is defeated with attacks to the stomach while it is inhaling, or (1) HP Ball x10 if it is defeated with Gravity while it is inhaling.
