The Bandersnatch is a lion-like enemy in Final Fantasy V. Easily missed by those seeking to fill up the GBA version's Bestiary section, it appears in Bartz's World on the grass patches around the Torna Canal's entrance and the F-shaped peninsula. These locations may only be reached with either Faris's pirate ship, by riding the wind drake, or by using the airship. Often confronting the player as a trio, Bandersnatches make an excellent source of early ABP, and also drop a moderate amount of gil. When caught and released, they will use Blaster.
