* Probably the best known example of this trope to originate from a pre-2000 FPS is the Gremlin from ''VideoGame/{{Quake I}} Mission Pack Number 1: Scourge of Armagon''. As a unique twist, they can only steal weapons (and only one per individual Gremlin), & they can't steal melee weapons or weapons that are automatically in your inventory when you start a new game (your battle-axe falls into both "exempt" categories, Mjolnir falls into the former "exempt" category, and your single-barrel shotgun falls into the latter "exempt" category). However, when they steal a weapon, they know how to use it, and ''boy will they use it just as effectively as you can''. Additionally, they can eat dead enemy remains (be it whole corpses or gibs) & will spawn 1 copy of themselves for every set of remains they manage to finish eating, ''and'' if you're wielding a weapon they can't steal, their attempt to steal it will hurt you from the resulting claw scratches. On the upside, unlike most modern Bandit Mooks, killing it lets you get the stolen weapon back (including any ammo the weapon has left when the Gremlin is killed - yes, they actually take some of the relevant ammo when they steal a weapon from you), and the cloning ability can be stopped by killing it when it's eating.

* ''[[VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies Plants Vs Zombies 2: It's About Time]]'' has the Ra Zombie, who uses his sun scepter to steal any sun lying around. Killing him makes him drop any sun that he stole. There's the Turquoise Skull Zombie who uses his CrystalSkull to steal sun lying about before firing it as a deadly beam attack, killing him will ''not'' make him drop any stolen sun.

* One of the basic mooks in the original ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTriad'' can not only steal your missile-launching weapons, but he can also use them against you.

* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akalabeth:_World_of_Doom Akalabeth]]'', the first adventure in the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, had a Thief who could steal any items your character had on him, and a Leprechaun who stole half your food each turn. In both cases, the goods became [[PermanentlyMissableContent lost forever]].

* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'' has a variation: Greed (and the smaller "greed-heads" and the larger Super-Greed) doesn't actually steal your money directly, but getting hit by his attacks causes you to drop 2 pennies, but lose 3 from your total count. You can always pick up the pennies Greed made you drop, but that 3rd cent is [[PermanentlyMissableContent lost forever]].

[[spoiler:Ultra Greed, however, can also beat the coins out of you, and ''does'' pick them up if you don't snatch them back as soon as you can. Not only does this prevent you from depositing those particular coins on the Ultra Greed Machine after the boss fight, but they also heal him for a minimal amount]].

Compare MooksAteMyEquipment. Not to be confused with mooks who happen to be bandits in-story, unless they're also [[BanditMook Bandit Mooks]] in gameplay terms too. Most tend to be CowardlyMooks as well.

* The Meta-Being known as Gliro in ''VideoGame/{{Baroque}}'' likes to steal an item from your inventory, then flee at top speed. And yes, it can snatch the sword right out of your hands or the coat right off your back. If you manage to chase it down and kill--er, purify it, it will drop whatever it stole from you...but sometimes the Gliro chooses to ''throw'' the item at you in self-defense, in which case the item will be LostForever.

** The ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' series have Thief as a job/class for human units and were usually the first targets players went after other than [[ShootTheMedicFirst the White Mages]]. Aside from being very fast and having high evasion, enemy thieves, like your thieves, can steal money, items, and equipment, which could lead to a LostForever if an enemy thief stole a unique piece of equipment. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsA2'', thieves got nerfed and can only steal pieces of loot, money, and accessories. The new Viking class is capable of stealing armor with their Pillage ability, though.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Growlanser}}'' series, the imp and CatGirl enemies will steal items and gold from party members. The CatGirl enemies will then make a dash for the nearest exit from the battlefield, rendering your items LostForever if they manage to do so. Especially annoying when they attack your party in packs.
