Affinity MAX Evade is an Aux Core or a Skill RAM / Upgrade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country. It increases Evasion Rate by up to 18% 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 α, Poppi QT and Poppi QTπ as an Aux Core equivalent.

The Crimson Orchid Brighid and Jade Orchid Brighid DLC Aux Cores have equivalent effects to this Aux Core's Rank V variant.
