* MadeOfIron: Sven is the only enemy in the game with 100 resistance across all six attributes.

A giant Sylooth who tends two ovis deep in Noctilum. He's content to care for his flock, but if you mess with them, he will ''not'' be happy.



* BellyFlopCrushing: Pyotr can unleash a ''flying body slam''. It really hurts coming from a skyscraper-sized humanoid.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: While he's very friendly, if you tick him off, he will show you no mercy.
* GentleGiant: He's the only Sylooth in the game that isn't aggressive towards Skells.
* PapaWolf: Attacking either of his ovis will start a battle with him, and he becomes very upset if you kill them.
* RedOniBlueOni: According to the Enemy Index, Heidi tends to run out ahead of Pyotr, while Claire tends to hang around in his shadow.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Kill one of his ovis, and he will become absolutely furious. Kill both, and he becomes resistant to damage.
* StandardStatusEffects: Heidi can inflict Sleep on one person or your whole party.

* BeamSpam: Its Random Beam and Beam Rush arts fire a lot of beams.

* BonusBoss: Can be found during the story, though it sure puts up a fight.
* GiantFlyer: One of the larger flying indigen species.
* GuideDangIt: One of the most obscure Tyrants in the game, second to the gold blattas. Absolutely ''nothing'' hints to its existence and it only shows up during a specific weather condition.
* HairTriggerTemper: Just so much as ''poke'' its weak back fin, and it will fly into a rage.
* SavageSetpiece: It's entirely passive, and will only fight if you attack it first.
* TurnsRed: Destroy its back fin, and it goes ''berserk''. Its Enraged level hits level VI, it deals hefty spike damage, and its already boosted arts become ''even more powerful'' and inflict some nasty and rarely-seen debuffs like Virus and Time Bomb.

* ShockAndAwe: As a colubrim, it uses primarily electric attacks.



* ChestBlaster: Its Dark Ray art is fired from its chest.



* HealThyself: It heals itself periodically when its health falls low.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the previous game, Telethia were violent creatures that would kill anything they saw. Here, the lone Telethia is more of a benevolent guardian deity, protecting even foreign life that settles in on Mira. Technically it is still fulfilling the same role as in VideoGame/{{Xenoblade Chronicles}}; it's just following a considerably narrower definition of "impure life". Unfortunately for the Orpheans, however, that narrow list includes the Ovah.

Added DiffLines:

* RedBaron: Like most Tyrants, it has a nickname, in this case "Endbringer". Given that the Tyrant nicknames are suggested to have been assigned by humanity, one gets the sense some [=BLADEs=] either saw it at work or foolishly attacked it. The Nopon know it by a different title: the Ruler of Fates.


* BlueAndOrangeMorality: It is at least semi-sentient and able to empathize with sentient beings, but what causes it to judge lifeforms as "impure" is pretty vague. The Taint of Noctilum is obviously a madness-inducing disease, but what it has against the Ovah is unclear.



* FinalBossPreview: During L's last Affinity Mission, The Nopon Heir, Team Elma attempts to fight against Telethia. It's mercifully a ScriptedBattle, but serves as a preview for what is instore if you do decide to return to try and fight it.

* EvilCounterpart: To Telethia, the Endbringer. In addition to its more demonic appearance, being one of the only two species of Ultrafauna in the game and being the second strongest superboss, its role in Mira's ecosystem also contrasts the Telethia's. Telethia is a protector of the world, whereas Pharsis and the other Yggraliths destroy worlds.

!!Significant Indigens
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:The Guardian Deity]]
!! Go-rha, the Guardian Deity

A Xe-dom that sits apparently immobile in the middle of a large lake in southern Noctilum.
----
* AttackReflector: Has a constant energy shield that reflects all damage types, meaning it's necessary to equip reflect-negation augments to kill him.
* {Badass}: One of the most powerful tyrants in the game, and one of those that requires specific preparation to beat.
* GuideDangIt: Go-rha's AttackReflector is never referenced in-game, meaning you'll likely need to look up why you can't deal any damage to him.
* HumongousMecha: Possibly the first really big one you will run into.
* JumpScare: Go-rha is the first Xe-dom encountered in the game, meaning you might not even know he's alive before he gets up.
* SchmuckBait: Go on. Check out that cool broken robot thing. We dare you.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Notable mainly for the fact that you ''will'' get attacked by it at least once long, long before you're ready to deal with it.

[[folder:The Headless Emperor]]
!! Gradivus, the Headless Emperor

A Millesaur that is missing its neck. Can be found at Oblivia's north coast after the end of the game.
----
* BarrierChangeBoss: Gradivus' elemental resistances and attacks will change each time he ejects a parasite from his body.
* BonusBoss: Doesn't show up until after the credits have rolled.
* DamageSpongeBoss: Gradivus doesn't have a particularly high damage output, but at ''100,000,040 health'' it has nearly ten times as much health as Telethia, making it a war of attrition you'll lose if you run out of fuel.
* OffWithHisHead: At some point in the past Gradivus lost it false head.
* ProportionatelyPonderousParasites: Throughout the fight, Gradivus will occasionally eject a parasitic Gerrid from its body. Given Gradivus's size, the Gerrids are still quite large and powerful in their own right.
* UniqueEnemy: The only Millesaur to be missing its head by default. It's unique enough to have its own holofigure in addition to the standard Millesaurs'.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Distinguished and the Wileworm]]
!! Atreides, the Distinguished and Gesserith, the Wileworm

Two of the largest indigens living on Mira. As a Sabula, Atreides can be found leaping up out of the sand in Sylvalum, and his mate Gesserith will protect him at all costs.
----
* BattleCouple: Atreides is the male, and Gesserith is the female. Female Sabula are a bit larger than the males, making Gesserith marginally more of a threat.
* BonusBoss: While they can technically be found during the main story, good luck not getting devoured in seconds.
* DualBoss: Once Atreides is down to about half of his health, his roar will resonate throughout the continent and Gesserith will show up to assist him. And just in case you thought you could ignore Gesserith until Atreides is finished, she'll immediately inflict taunt on you, drawing your attention to her and her fresh health bar for a while.
* SandWorm: And horrifically large even by Mira's standards.
* ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend: Though considering she's a wild animal and you're posing a threat to her mate, it's quite understandable.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Wanderer-King]]
!! Lugalbanda, the Wanderer-King

The sole chimera that escaped the Lifehold Core, it established a nest in Noctilum's Vitriol Cesspool.

* BodyHorror: As a chimera, it is a grotesque composite of numerous animals' features.
* BonusBoss: Another tyrant that only appears after completing the story. In this case, it's because it was created during the final chapter.
* FlunkyBoss: It can call Stray Ovis to assist it.
* {{Hermaphrodite}}: Its description states that it is such, and seeks sufficient nourishment to reproduce.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Deific Blast]]
!! Vortice, the Deific Blast

A Level 94 Colubrim that awoke from a 50-year hibernation for breeding season. It can be found above Mount M'Gando in Cauldros.
----
* BonusBoss: A Superboss and the strongest indigen in Cauldros.
* LargeAndInCharge: Even bigger than most Colubrims.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Everqueen]]
!! Pharsis, the Everqueen

A Yggralith that has settled on Mira. It can be found within Sylvalum's Noctilucent Sphere.
----
* BonusBoss: One of the two Ultrafauna. Pharsis is the second strongest, at level 97.
* EldritchAbomination: Yggraliths are from the very depths of outer space and feed off all the ether in whatever region they settle in, as well as any other creatures they may run into before moving on to the next. It is also said that if two Yggraliths were to come into contact with each other, the resulting battle would destroy any nearby planets. Thankfully, it and the only other two Yggraliths in the game, Phanatos, the Netherlord and the raid boss Yggralith Zero, don't ever meet.
* GravityMaster: A large number of its attacks are gravity-elemental.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Aside from the names individual specimens are given, "Yggr" is the Old Norse word for "terrible", and Yggraliths destroy worlds.
* PlanetEater: According to the Enemy Index, Yggraliths are interstellar creatures that land on planets, suck all the Ether up while also literally eating the native fauna, then leave the planet a dead husk and move on to the next.

[[folder:The Endbringer]]
!! Telethia, the Endbringer

The Guardian of Mira, Ruler of Fates, and culler of impure lifeforms.
----
* AdaptationalBadass: In the previous game, while Telethia were dangerous, they were recurring enemies, could be killed pretty quickly (the highest-leveled Telethia in that game is within that game's player level cap) and have their mind-reading abilities impaired by Monado Purge. In this game, the sole Telethia (aside from the Telethia Plume raid boss) is not only the guardian of Mira, larger than any of the Telethia from the previous game, and able to kill three Tainted Sphinxes with little effort (for reference, you fight just one Sphinx as a boss prior to this moment), it is the most powerful [[BonusBoss superboss]] in the game at level 99 (39 levels past the player's level cap). And here there's no Monado to combat its mind-reading abilities.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the previous game, Telethia were violent creatures that would kill anything they saw. Here, the lone Telethia is more of a benevolent guardian deity, protecting even foreign life that settles in on Mira. Technically it is still fulfilling the same role as in VideoGame/{{Xenoblade Chronicles}}; it's just following a considerably narrower definition of "impure life".
* BonusBoss: The most powerful boss in the game, at level 99.
* FinalBossPreview: During L's last Affinity Mission, The Nopon Heir, Team Elma attempts to fight against Telethia. It's mercifully a ScriptedBattle, but serves as a preview for what is instore if you do decide to return to try and fight it.
* GiantFlyer: It can usually be found circling the Divine Roost in Noctilum, and casts a huge shadow on the ground.
* {{Immortality}}: While all Tyrants will respawn, Telethia is unique in that no less than three missions pit you against it, and two of them require you kill it (A Fateful Choice, and a segment topic for the survey, which cannot be completed simultaneously). This would suggest that its respawning is canon rather than just a gameplay mechanic like other Tyrants.
* {{Leitmotif}}: It and Telethia Plume are the only enemies in the game for which the second half of "raTEoREkiSImeAra" plays.
* SavageSetpiece: You can get as close as you want without it attacking, except during L's second Affinity Mission where it challenges you to a brief duel.
* SingleSpecimenSpecies: Unless the Telethia Plume raid boss is another individual.
* {{Telepathy}}: It is able to read the minds of those around it to judge their intentions and worthiness; and like before, it will use this in battle to become virtually untouchable by reading your attacks. Unlike before, you won't have the Monado to help you cut it off this time.
