... Until they realise that he's actually the ''real BigBad''. The giant is actually named Arglas and was Egil's closest friend before discovering the Bionis Monado and being possessed by the evil god within: Zanza. Considered to be the soul of the Bionis, Zanza is the being responsible for all life on it and its attack on the Mechonis. Since Zanza requires a physical body to maintain his existence, being unable to remain in his spirit form forever, he has locked all life on Bionis in an endless cycle of death and rebirth: wiping out everything and creating life anew once life on Bionis reaches a certain point. This is because, if his creations evolve too much and leave the world he has created behind, then he will be without a living host and ultimately die.

* BaitTheDog: During the first encounter with him at Prison Island he seemed a little shady, with the reasoning why he's there left as a mystery, but it's clear that he has the best intentions for the people of Bionis in their fight against the forces of Mechonis... if only for the short term as [[OmnicidalManiac he definitely does not have any good will for the life of Mechonis or Bionis in the long term]].

** Like Meyneth, both are scientist ascending to godhood and controling titan bodies. While Meyneth was a kind goddess who wanted her own creations to evolve and carve their own futures, Zanza was a ControlFreak who saw his progeny as food to be consumed.

* FallenHero: Implied in his conversation with Face Nemesis, who apparently accuses him of sacrificing the party in his quest to defeat Mechonis. [[ShutUpHannibal He tells her to stuff it]]. The whole thing takes on a [[ShutUpKirk much darker note when you realise what Zanza's ''actual'' nature is.]] ''Xenoblade Chronicles 2'' reveals that Zanza was originally Klaus and his goal was to try and save the world from war after he lost faith humanity. And while his intentions might have been noble, his method for achieving said was reckless and selfish, and the entire planet suffers dearly because of it. The experiment ultimately separates his soul into two, with the "Zanza" half reincarnating into a God.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He politely greets Shulk and the gang to his original home world before they fight, and does praise Shulk for being one of the very few people that were actually useful to him. But he is also an OmnicidalManiac that [[ItsAllAboutMe cares about nothing but himself]], and is a SmugSnake to boot.

* ModestyShorts: Fiora wears these under her original skirt. They come as a part of that section of armor.


* SubmissiveBadass: He might be the party's biggest badass, but he defers to Shulk when it comes to leading them.


* TakeTheBullet: As he sees Metal Face wildly slashing towards him and Melia, who are embracing, the emperor pushes his daughter out of range and gets stabbed himself. His efforts pay off, as Metal Face's claws barely miss her.

* YouAreNotAlone: When Shulk is worried about saving Otharon from a bad vision and is afraid to tell others about his visions, Reyn tells him to share his visions with the team so they can change the future together.

* JackOfAllTrade: Riki is the only member who can perform all of the DamagerHealerTank effectively. As a damager he can stack up DamageOverTime and has some nasty back attacks. As a healer he has a strong AreaOfEffect heal, and as a tank he can use his gigantic HP and high Agility to survive. However, Melia is a much stronger DamageOverTime character, Sharla has more healing options, and Reyn and Dunban has better aggro control. Riki is a good choice for every team, but he will not always be the best.

* {{Foil}}: To Shulk. Both are engineers who are known to be talented and compassionate to their respective people. After the destruction of their hometowns, they both swear bloody revenge on the opposite Titan. However, while Egil has no problem killing even other Machina who try to stop him, Shulk retains his compassion. Egil claims to be Meyneth's agent, not knowing that she opposes his quest for revenge, while Shulk allies with Zanza unaware that he himself is Zanza's vessel. Egil believes that his own god and people have betrayed him, while Shulk is betrayed and killed by Zanza's disciple. Finally, Shulk ends up destroying Zanza for good, while Egil makes peace with Meyneth shortly before both of their demises.

Dickson Soss is a veteran of the battle of Sword Valley a year before the events of the game and a comrade of Dunban and Mumkhar. He is a resident of Colony 9 and looks over Shulk, Reyn, and the other residents. He claims to have found Shulk in the Valak Mountain with the Monado and his parents dead. Dickson raised Shulk as his own. It is later revealed that Dickson is a disciple of Zanza (Dickson of the Trinity) and only took Shulk because Zanza was using him as a host.
