The easiest way to avoid fighting the Jackanapes is to take five steps, quicksave, and repeat. It'll take several minutes to loot both rooms, but it's worth it if you're concerned about dieing.

The high defense and evade values and absorbing all elements make these tricky if you'd rather fight than run. Level 5 Death works if you have it, but what if you missed it? You need a way around that defense... and there are at least two readily available even in the first world. Critical hits ignore defense, so high-critical weapons (katanas) may do the trick, but there's an easier way. Axes partially pierce defense (def=def/4). A team of Berserkers works surprisingly well against these, especially with the Thief's Caution to avoid the otherwise constant back attacks and white magic to heal between battles.
