Disgaea Wiki
Thief DD2

The Thief is a recurring humanoid class in the Disgaea series first introduced in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories. It is the female counterpart of the Bandit class first introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.


Thieves wear goggles with cat eyes, hoods with cat ears, striped socks, very short pants and crop-tops, short jackets with long sleeves, collars with cat-tails, and cat-foot-like boots.


Stealing is regarded as an advanced technique, so the Thieves' Guild is the largest in the Netherworld and is dedicated to preserving the advanced techniques of stealing. Thieves will steal anything by request and can even steal things not visible to the naked eye, such as emotions. Legend speaks of a legendary Thief King, though it is also suggested that this is a title taken on by skilled Thieves.


They specialize in stealing equipment from other characters in all games they appear in.


Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories[]

Main article: Thief (Disgaea 2)

The Thief first appears in Disgaea 2, as a replacement for the Bandit class. In this game, they have better stats, aptitudes, and weapon mastery levels than the Disgaea Bandit. On top of that, a Thief's Lover in this game allowed it a better chance to steal items from enemies.

Thieves in Disgaea 2 are able to learn skills on their own. These skills do not cause any damage, but rather cause a status effect to one unit. These skills can allow for the destruction of enemies of far higher strength than themselves by putting enemies to sleep and then poisoning them, allowing for easy "cheesing" of battles.

Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice[]

The Thief in Disgaea 3 is much like the Disgaea 2 Thief, save for now they have only two skills, 'Create Box', and 'Create Barrel'. A level 15 Thief is required in order to unlock the Gunslinger and Gunner classes.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten[]

Other Appearances[]

Makai Kingdom[]

Makai Kingdom Thieves, much like the Disgaea Thieves, have bad combat stats, but they have a good Jump and Move stats, a large number of available item slots, and are the only class which can use UFO's, the weapon that is required in order to steal items from enemies.

Soul Nomad and the World Eaters[]

The Thief of Soul Nomad is known as the 'Bandit'. While it is unknown if a Bandit has a better chance of stealing from the enemy than any other squad, the Bandit is best known for having a high speed, causing most attacks to miss them, and also for its squad leader tactic of 'Fade Out', which makes it invisible to enemy forces until it attacks, uses a Gig Edict or another tactic, or an enemy steps next to them.

Its special attack when it is the leader is known as the 'Lupin Snatch', a possible tribute to Lupin III, a famous anime thief. The attack targets the enemy squad's leader.
