An enemy who's been inflicted with topple.

Topple is a status in Xenoblade Chronicles. It causes a targeted enemy to fall down and removes its resistance to daze. When a target is down, it cannot dodge and thus all attacks against it have 100% accuracy. Furthermore, against a toppled target, critical damage is increased by 25% and all ether attacks will always land critical hits. When hit with a topple art, an enemy will remain toppled for three seconds; if hit with another topple art within that time, the time will be extended. Arts that inflict topple are colored green. Some enemies have a topple spike, which damages or debuffs party members that attack the enemy while it is toppled.


  • All Mechon, including Faced Mechon, have a 50% longer topple duration (i.e. 4.5 seconds).
  • Some end-game enemies such as the Superbosses have a 50% shorter topple duration (i.e. 1.5 seconds).
  • The duration of a topple on an enemy stacks with every topple art applied. Through a strategy usually referred to as "topple locking," a player can keep an enemy toppled for an entire battle.
