Default Thieves - worst class or best?

We should all know Disgaea's thieves and how awesome they are capable of being, but how pitiful they start out at! When you get a level one Thief, you are dealing with a character who has terrible stats all around. However through stat stealing, leveling up, and transmigration, thieves can become one of the best and most handy classes around!

A few tips:

get level 10 in Sword use ASAP, even if you you have to transmigrate a swordmaster into a thief to get there. LVL 10 Sword Tech is an absolute must for leveling and crowd control.

Consider having your future thief spend some time as both a healer and mage, so that you can have access to healing and attack magic when needed.

ALWAYS be on the lookout for good items to steal, and don't forget about stealing stats to improve your weakest areas.

Consider having your thief be the master of a high defense class character, like a galactic demon. Your thief will get some pretty decent defense boosts thanks to the pupil bonus.
Signatures? Yeah...nothing yet!

actually using a thief as a combat character is a bad idea. They have NO counter attack ability (a max of 1 only if you raise it in the assembly), and leveling a stat by stealing is WAY slower than X-migration AND item leveling, at a pitiful 10-20 stat points per steal compared to easily thousands of stat points per minute doing either of the latter two methods.

HOWEVER, I do have a lv.9999 thief for the stealing capability. A lv.9999 thief with his hit rating raised should ALWAYS have a 99% chance of stealing ANYTHING (even a max difficulty prinny baal), so it's an obvious choice to have at least one of these guys maxed at lv.9999 at all times.
My level is OVER 9000!

My own thieves (Yes, I have two) do well as a tag team. Thieves do make for good bonus-grabbers if you use them right with guns. Mine have Totenkreuz and Inferno which make for some heavy damage, considering it's a pair thieves we're talking about.

If I team them up with my scout, it can really be a slaughter.
