A New Rival? is an Affinity Mission in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It can be received at the BLADE Concourse in the Administrative District in New Los Angeles. The mission is not selectable from the BLADE Concourse's Mission terminal itself, but from an orange-colored affinity mission trigger a few steps away.
- "Achieve all objectives"

- "Defeat a thieving dilus at Noctilum's Rust Lake"
- "Talk to Solan at Noctilum's Rust Lake."
"Completing H.B.'s task appears to have made him view you and himself as mutual rivals aiming for the top. Go to the cathedral for the next affinity mission."
