The Bandersnatch is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. Zorn and Thorn summon Bandersnatches to stop the party from escaping Alexandria Castle with Garnet. They can also be fought in random encounters around the city of Alexandria. In the event that Vivi convinces Zidane to cheer on Garnet before she is enthroned, the party can leave Alexandria for a while to fight these monsters for Experience within the beginning of disc 3.
The Bandersnatch is considered a mini-boss when first met in Alexandria because the player is unable to flee from it and it is seen "in-game" before the battle commences.

Bandersnatch from Final Fantasy IX appears as an enemy in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
