Panzer Bandit is a 1997 Japan-only Beat'Em Up developed by Fill-in Cafe and published by Banpresto for the Play Station. The game is a mix of 2D sprites with 3D backgrounds, with sprite-based characters running in a 2.5D environment. The game plays similary to Sega Saturn's Guardian Heroes, except with only 2 planes of movement to jump back and forth. Each character has three basic attack options: two melee attacks and one energy draining special. There are special moves done with button combinations, as well as powerful Hyper attacks, both of which cost energy as well (which is recovered by rackiung up big Combos).

Set in a not-so distant future where the natural sources of energy are disappearing due to human consumption. Then along it comes an evil organization known as Ark, with their whale-shaped air fortress and gang of robot Mooks seeking to claim the remaning sources of energy to, obviously, Take Over the World. Good scientist Kron confronts the heads of Ark: the Mad Scientist Farado and his ally Golden, but can't do much to stop them. Thus, he gathers a 4-man team (comprised of Kou, Ein, Kasumi and Miu) in order to get back at Ark and stop their plans.
