Umon is an NPC in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He is an Nopon old friend of Tora's father; Tora considers him as an uncle. He resides at his shipyard near the rear of Gormott. Umon proposes the quest Umon Bounces Back.
Umon plays a minor role in the game's story. After Rex and the others depart from Torigoth, Tora suggests they borrow a ship from his uncle Umon to travel to the World Tree. After helping get the materials, Umon gives them his ship, which soon gets destroyed once they crash inside of Uraya.
In his quest Umon Bounces Back, it is revealed that Umon's shipping business is not doing well: his recently sold boats had yet to be paid for, many of his loaned ships were never returned, his newly built ships were being destroyed rather quickly, and his shipyard was ransacked. This leads him to consider committing suicide, but the party helps build a new Titan ship for him and restart his business.
Umon is a Challenge Battle Enemy fought as a level 60 Nopon enemy during the wave 3 of the This Year's Heropon Challenge Battle, available as downloadable content from the Challenge Battle Mode Pack of the Expansion Pass. This enemy drops no items.
- In the Japanese dub, Umon is voiced by Junichi Suwabe, who also is the voice of Amalthus.
