* In the expansion to RealTimeStrategy game Videogame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars, Kane's Wrath, each faction got access to a one-at-a-time Epic Unit. GDI, essentially the '[[GrayandGreyMorality good guys]]', got the MARV[[note]][[FunWithAcronyms Mammoth Armed Reclamation Vehicle]][[/note]], a unit designed, in-universe, to reclaim territory taken over by the AlienKudzu known as Tiberium, which also serves as the game's ressource. Normally, you'd use fragile and small harvesters for this which would then return to refineries to earn you credits, but the MARV is the very image of TankGoodness, armed and armored befitting an epic unit, and a [[BaseOnWheels Refinery On Wheels]] on top, which means it converts any Tiberium to credits instantly. Why does this make it a [[BanditMook Bandit Unit]]? Because GDI players tend to send it rampaging through the ''opponent's'' Tiberium fields, robbing them of resources. You try stopping something like [[http://i.imgur.com/cLLecqe.jpg?1 this]].

* The [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars Mammoth Armed Reclamation Vehicle]], is a classically [[MightyGlacier GDI]] approach to this concept. It's a tank big enough to [[SerialEscalation run over tanks big enough to run over other tanks]]. It's also [[MundaneUtility technically a Harvester]]. The general strategy for it's use being to simply barge into the enemy's expansion base, destroy the expansion singlehandedly, and steal the entire tiberium field. Even if they destroy it and rebuild, the MARV already paid for itself several times over and your tib field is depleted.

** The moves return in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV''. It's even more infuriating here; money is ''incredibly'' scarce in ''IV''.

* For maximum irony, ''cops'' in ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' can steal any loot bags that you leave lying around, carrying them to undesirable parts of the map or even taking them completely (bags critical to the mission can't disappear). Shooting the cop that is holding a bag will force him to drop it. If you're quick enough with the interaction button, you can steal the bags right off the cop's back!

This is the occasional {{Mook}} who isn't interested in your party's demise so much as he is in your BagOfHolding. He may have a share of normal attacks, but he's unlikely to do any serious harm -- his signature attack pattern is to swipe something from your HyperspaceArsenal then disappear as quickly as possible, taking the stolen goods with him. Fenced goods may be gone forever if stolen, so for this reason he will (usually) interest himself only in items that can be easily replaced at local shops. After all, if the Bandit Mook randomly made off with your hard-earned {{MacGuffin}}s and {{Plot Coupon}}s, this could render your game {{unwinnable|ByDesign}}, and [[AndThatsTerrible that would be terrible.]]
