Ancient Machine

An Ancient Machine

Ancient Machines are bosses in Xenoblade Chronicles. They are fought at level 8 in the Colony 9 area. Upon reaching the Cylinder Hangar, the party is forced to fight two of them to continue the story. The first Ancient Machine on the left has a higher attack strength while the second one has a higher ether power.


The two Ancient Machines are guardians of the Cylinder Hangar  who attack Shulk, Reyn and Fiora, mistaking them for the true threat. It is only after this that the raid on Colony 9 begins.

It is later revealed that they are defence units for the High Entia. They are a type of Andos, which are later used against the war with the Mechon.

They are the first bosses found in the game, Battle of Sword Valley prologue, prior to the events of Xenoblade Chronicles, not taking into account.
