Vague Barbas (Japanese: 濛々のマルバス, Mōmō no Marubasu) is a Unique Monster in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is a member of the Nebula family, and can be found at level 46 with a group of Reef Nebulae on a small plateau southwest of the Befalgar Pedestal in Valak Mountain. It can drop the Snow Elements needed for Colony 6 Reconstruction.

The Vague Barbas can be reached by starting at Zokhed Pass, heading north down the mountain, bearing east up the hill, then crossing the natural bridge to the southwest, and finally continuing south to an oval-shaped area southeast of Nagul Waterfall. Later the Vague Barbas can be simply reached from the Befalgar Pedestal heading south through the tunnel.
