The forces of the Ganglion approaching New Los Angeles

The Ganglion (Japanese: グロウス, Gurousu, Growth; English dub: /ˈɡæŋ.ɡli.ən/ or /ˈɡæŋ.li.ən/) is a hostile coalition of different alien races in Xenoblade Chronicles X. This coalition serves as the game's main antagonistic force during the storyline. The alliance is a crime syndicate composed of various races originating from the Samaar Federation, founded and headed by the Ganglion. They are trying to wipe out the human race from existence, believing it is their destiny to do so. The Ganglion went to war with another alien race, having a battle above Earth and exterminating humans on the planet below, eventually destroying the planet once humans were evacuated using Ark Ships. They did not return from the battle, but were engulfed by a mysterious light and involuntarily transported to Mira.

Over the two years prior to the White Whale crashing on Mira, the Ganglion set up numerous outposts across the continents. Their main fortress is located in Cauldros.
