For the variant appearing during the story-event battle on level B2F, see Hover Astas (story).

Hover Astas are enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles. They are members of the Astas family, and can be found at level 33 in the halls near the Tomb Robber Pool and between the Valley of Emperors and the Tower of Trials - Bridge in the High Entia Tomb. Shulk and the party face it as one of the basic types of enemies. As with all of the monsters in the High Entia Tomb, it is a Sight Category monster. They can drop Astas Remote Units, which are needed for A Necessary Upgrade. They can also drop the New Cylinders needed for Restoring the Capital 2.

A variant Hover Astas appears only during a story event battle in the Hall of Trials on level GF.
