For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.
Poppi Quixotic Tutelar (Japanese: ハナ ジャスティス・ナイトモード, Hana Jasutisu Naito Mōdo, lit. "Hana Justice Knight Mode"), shortened to Poppi QT (Japanese: ハナJK, Hana JK), is an artificial Special Legendary Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is an alternate form of Poppi, enabled after her ether furnace was ignited with the help of Lila. She has a powerful metallic body and perfectly practices the Nopon language. She is taller and looks like an older girl compared to Poppi α. Her pigtails are longer and flexible. Unlike her previous and final forms, Poppi QT wears a maid outfit. Although Poppi is not a natural Blade awakened from a Core Crystal and Tora is not a Driver, they work as a kind of Driver and Blade duo during battle. She originally uses the power of fire with a Tank class, but she can equip water, wind, earth, and dark element cores through Poppiswap. In battle, Tora can fight using the Mech Arms. Poppi QT can be upgraded through the Poppiswap mechanism. She was also known as Poppi β in early builds.
Later in the Heart-to-Heart "Growing Up" event, her model name is revealed to be "Poppi Quixotic Tutelar" and that she has a third mode called "Quantum Technochampion π". After that event and reaching Chapter 8, a new side quest will be unlocked in Tora's House to upgrade Poppi to her third form Poppi QTπ.
Poppi's personality in this form is nigh identical to her previous form, as discussed in "Growing Up", although she speaks more emotively.
Poppi QT's body looks more humanoid than her α form, although highly mechanized feet and joints are still visible. She retains her purple, red and black color scheme, and her pale skin, orange eyes and core crystal. In this form she wears a stereotypical maid outfit with a red bow and cog-flower decoration. She has two red ribbons in her pigtails and upon transforming between forms becomes hidden in them for the duration of the transformation.
After Lila betrays Bana's command and becomes subservient to Tatazo, Tora and Poppi α stay behind with them. Lila helps upgrade Poppi's ether furnace, and she upgrades into her QT form during the battle against Rosa. However, Poppi stays in her α form for most of the story. She does take on her QT form a few times; Poppi QT is used when fighting Mikhail and Patroka at Bulge Harbor. She also assists in diverting the ether accelerator's aim and helps to save Pyra in Tantal.
As a legendary Blade, Poppi does not have a Blade Quest, although Making Love Source focuses on her heavily. She takes part in three Heart-to-hearts; "Good Habits", "Growing Up", and "Reconciliation". These concern diary-keeping with Brighid, Poppi's third mode (QTπ) with Pyra and Tora, and Ardainian politics with Tora, Brighid and Mòrag.

As an artificial special Blade, Poppi QT has her own Blade mechanics and a particular customization. Her element, role, skills and Arts can be changed using items earned from playing Tiger! Tiger!, a mini-game created by Tora's grandfather, Professor Soosoo.
Poppi QT's Japanese name, Hana JK, may be a reference to "Joshi Kosei" (女子校生) meaning "High School Girl".
