* 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.

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 that would make players very angry.

Defeating a Bandit Mook frequently results in the immediate recovery of any stolen goods; but this isn't always the case, especially if it was just cash. (Exactly how he can keep you from [[FridgeLogic physically looting his corpse]] is a mystery, but then again, it may be because EverythingFades.)
