Memes / Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Go To

The entire Xenoblade Chronicles series is known for moments that become memorable to many, and with it being the most publicly-known entry, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 may just be the most memetic game in the series yet.

Pre-Release/Nintendo Direct

  • With the announcement of the game, many fans expressed their excitement towards getting mauled by Territorial Rotbart for the third timenote  and that dying at the hands of the giant Killer Gorilla in the early game is an essential part of any Xenoblade experience. This got ramped up even more when the second trailer showed the party fighting a low-level enemy (in what is presumably an early-game area) with a familiar red Gogol lurking in the distance.
    • Monolith seems to be in on the joke, because successive game footage they've released since then has featured the Gogol at closer and closer distances each time.
    • "He's not called Territorial Rotbart? Literally unplayable, pre-order cancelled."Explanation 
  • Xenoblade FatesExplanation 
  • People watching the reveal trailer and recognizing it as Xenoblade not by the art style, but by the main characters' British accents.
    • Pointing out Sena's American Valley Girl accent and how out-of place it sounds next to the British Accents of her teammates (most of which are English, with her best friend Mio having a Welsh accent in the same family).
  • Is that a rainbow? Reyn confirmed!Explanation 
  • The reveal of the Ouroboros forms has led some fans to joke that the game's final fight will have all the party members fuse into a single Ouroboros known as the "Xenoblade". Some have even compared the idea to the Thrash Machine from Deltarune, to the point of "speculating" that the final boss fight will have an Unexpected Gameplay Change to a fighting game.

Character-Specific Memes


  • Noah being the son of Flynn from Shin Megami Tensei IV (due to the blatant similarities of their character art in terms of hairstyle, pose, and even sword placement) and other red-jacketed video game protagonists, with the most commonly joked-about ones being Rean Schwarzer from The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, Tatsuya Suou from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, and Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes (who also wields a Laser Blade to boot).

Riku and Manana

  • Riku the Nopon has prompted jokes about how his ushanka looks like Rex's hair and how must therefore essentially be Rex as a Nopon, as well as Kingdom Hearts jokes because he shares his name with the series' deuteragonist. It doesn't hurt that his partner Manana has a red-and-white color scheme like both Kairi and Pyra (in one of her beta designs), either.

The Queens of Keves and Agnus (Melia and Nia)

  • The leaders of the two opposing factions apparently being Melia and Nia caused many jokes from fans about Xenoblade Chronicles 3 being about fans of the first two games constantly fighting. There have also been jokes that they're so upset at being turned down by Shulk and Rex that they just decided to become full on incels and start a war. This one becomes hilarious after The Reveal that Nia did end up with Rex after all and had a kid with him, a kid suggested to be Mio.
  • The ruthless Queen of Agnus, everybody!Explanation 
  • "Poor Melia" made a return from the first game when the ending revealed that not only was Nia able to be in a poly relationship with Rex, but Poppi (a friend from her time) was also still around. Comparing that situation to Melia being alone, spending millennia captured by Z, and her only memento of her friends being Shulk's Monado REX, people began to repeat the phrase once again.
