A Lophid

Lophids (Japanese: ロフィル, Rofiru) are Piscinoid enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles X. They look like armored, eyeless anglerfishes of the Lophiidae (Goosefish) family. They can be found in Primordia and Cauldros.


"Lophids boast scales harder than armor plating, though this adaptation comes at the price of mobility. They use a bioluminescent esca to hunt at night, devouring any creatures taken in by the ruse. When up against foes of equal or larger size, they flicker the esca rapidly, disorienting their opponents just long enough to unleash a powerful tail strike."

"Males are paternal mouthbrooders—they keep the female's eggs inside their mouths while she looks for food. As males cannot hunt during this time, the fry are at risk of becoming dinner if sufficient food is not provided by the mate."

Color Variants

Lophids fall into two color variants:

  • Black lophids are dark gray with yellow details and yellow esca. They can drop Alluring Lophid Extract. They can be found in areas with lava and magma.
  • Green lophids are dark green with reddish details and red esca. They can drop Blinding Lophid Extract. They can only be found in Primordia.
