Finch (Japanese: イブキ, Ibuki) is a Rare Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She can grant tremendous power to her Drivers, Rex, Nia, Zeke or Mòrag, and their allies. Finch uses the wind element, wields a Shield Hammer, and acts as a Tank in battle. She has the appearance of an anthropomorphic bird, though she does not have a beak or sport a pair of wings. Instead of a beak, she sports a pair of red goggles with a black beak-like attachment. She wears braces on her upper arms and lower legs, and she wears a golden belt with a design similar to a hatching egg. She is shown to be very forgetful.

Finch was designed by Kunihiko Tanaka, who was the main character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles X, as well as Xenogears and the Xenosaga series.
