Wood Fonterra

A Lepyx

Lepyxes (Japanese: フォンテラ, Fontera) are large, four-legged creatures in Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Description

"Once marine creatures resembling sea slugs, these distant cousins of the xiphias left their ancestral home for land, becoming much larger in the process."

"Lepyxes lay their eggs in great numbers, then simply entrust them to the ocean. Surviving hatchlings feed on poisonous seaweed, stockpiling the toxins inside their bodies to prevent predation--though as they mature, the potency of this poison gradually weakens. Once all four limbs have grown, the young assume their place with an adult colony on land. This exciting new phase is not without its setbacks, however, as the soft, fleshy composition of adult lepyxes makes them an ideal snack for many a hungry predator."

Color Variants

Lepyxes fall into two color variants:

  • Sun Lepyxes have a dark brown back and shoulder horns, while the head and upper legs are yellow-brown. The shoulder horns have rounded ends. They can drop Lepyx Sunstones.
  • Moon Lepyxes have a dark reddish-black back, while the head and upper legs are pale green. The shoulder horns have sharp jagged tips and are colored black fading to white at the tips. They can drop Lepyx Moonstones.
