"Guess even a hero's gotta reach his limit eventually."
– Mumkhar

Mumkhar (Japanese: ムムカ, Mumuka, Mumca; English dub: /ˈmʊmkɑːr/) is a Homs antagonist in Xenoblade Chronicles. He is said to have once been an honorable yet unreliable man, but his obsession with the Monado and his jealousy of Dunban turned him into a traitor.

Prior to Xenoblade Chronicles

Mumkhar is first introduced in the opening scene at the Battle of Sword Valley, fighting alongside Dunban and Dickson. After the battle takes a turn for the worse, he chooses to desert his comrades in order to save himself, much to their dismay. Whilst fleeing he reveals his plans to collect the Monado after the battle is over, but runs straight into a group of hidden Mechon and is presumably killed.

Metal Face

Main article: Metal Face

The party discovers that Metal Face is piloted by Mumkhar near the end of Valak Mountain, where he extracts himself from the Faced Mechon to collect the Monado after Shulk places it in the snow. He shows that he is able to control his Faced Mechon even from outside its cockpit. Mumkhar fights the party, and his mechanised body is damaged by Dunban just as Egil arrives, and the two leave with Face Nemesis and head back to Galahad Fortress.


The party meets Mumkhar again at the Heavy Machine Depot in the Sword Valley, accompanied with two Mass-Produced Faces. The copies and Mumkhar himself are outfitted with special weapons that can fatally poison any being from Bionis. Even with this upgraded equipment, Dunban overpowers Mumkhar, and is about to kill him when Shulk intervenes and talks him down. They agree to let Mumkhar go, but he fires one last shot at the two, which misses and hits the side of Galahad Fortress, shaking loose a sharp spire from the structure which falls and impales Mumkhar inside his Mechon. The force of the impact causes the platform on which the battle took place to break off from the Mechonis' Sword and fall into the Great Sea, with Mumkhar effectively nailed to it, still alive and screaming as he plummets to his death.


While exploring the Fallen Arm, the party can find the location Black Wreckage, which is the remains of Mumkhar's Face Mechon. It is also the location of a Heart-to-Heart between Dunban and Melia - "Eternal Scars" - in which Dunban explains who Mumkhar was and how he coveted the hero status Dunban gained through using the Monado and wanted it for himself. Dunban also explains that, even as he cannot forgive him, he wishes that he found peace at last, showing that he still cares for his old brother-in-arms. At this same Heart-to-Heart Dunban mentions that Mumkhar was originally from another colony that was destroyed long ago.

  • In the Japanese version of the game, Mumkhar's Mechon name directly translates as "Black Face" but was changed due to possible controversies. This change in translation can be found on the Fallen Arm at the Black Wreckage. This also the same for Face Nemesis and the Silver Wreckage. Some translations, such as the Italian one, opted for a literal translation (Face Nero).
  • Mumkhar has several unused voice clips hidden in the game's files, including voice clips for dying, encountering a high level enemy, burst affinity lines for Dickson and Dunban, and fleeing from battle hinting that he was intended to be playable during the Battle of Sword Valley.
  • Mumkhar may have been intended to drop the material Mumkhar's Claws in Sword Valley and Mumkhar's Razor on Valak Mountain, but these item drops were removed, although Kurralth will trade Mumkhar's Razor when he is at the Three Sage Summit.
  • Examining the Black Wreckage of Metal Face reveals the cockpit opened, with Mumkhar missing. Despite the Heart-to-heart of "Eternal Scars" between Dunban and Melia, it is not brought up.
