Affinity MAX Atk is an Aux Core or a Skill RAM or Upgrade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country. It increases damage dealt by up to 55% when the Affinity between Driver and Blade is at max. This effect persists until the golden bond dissipates.

The Skill RAM/Upgrade variants can be used to customize Poppi QT and Poppi QTπ as an Aux Core equivalent. Poppi α is not compatible with this part.

The Magical Pink Pandoria and Mermaid-Blue Pandoria DLC Aux Cores have equivalent effects to this Aux Core's Rank V variant.
