Sharla: Juju and the others! Tell me where they are! Xord: Eeeyah hah hah! You want the brat? Well, he's right here! (...) He's still alive, but don't think he will be for long! As for the others, well... I just couldn't help myself. I ate them all up! Welcome to our banquet hall! Tonight, the main course will be... you! And if I've still got room, the brat will make a tasty dessert! Hehehe...
~ Xord to Sharla on the fate of Juju and the other residents of Colony 6.
Oh yes! It's good to have fresh meat on the table! These Colony folk just didn't fill me up! (...) Ha ha! Come on boys! Dinner's ready!
Xord is a minor antagonist in Xenoblade Chronicles.
He was voiced by Tesshō Genda in Japanese and by Jonathan Keeble in English.
Xord's bulky, round body is of a bronze-ish color, with silver armor and limbs. His gray face is quite humanoid as well, with a lower black jaw and red eyes. He mainly uses a large hammer to attack.
Xord is a gluttonous, sadistic character who only desires to eat Homs. He is also quite arrogant, boasting on how he is far more powerful compared to our heroes.
Xord owned a place known as "Xord's Smithy", it was the best one in his colony. He used to swing a hammer over his head and was really good at building and fixing machines. However, he took part in the Battle of Sword Valley and perished, he was soon turned into as Faced Mechon like the other Homs casualties. Xord had a daughter named Désirée, she couldn't keep the shop open after his "death" and had to close it down.
Before the battle, Shulk has a premonition about Juju being captured by Xord, who he mistakes for Metal Face. After defeating the Mechon M71, Xord attacks, bests the heroes through them being unable to do much damage to him, and kidnaps Juju, crying out that he'll be in Colony 6 if the heroes desire to rescue the boy. He reappears at the bottom of Ether Mine, boasting of himself eating the Defense Force, revealing his name and attacking the heroes through his powerful blows, his hammer, and summoning other Mechon. After taking some damage, Xord seems to be mostly unfazed by the heroes' attacks, but Otharon pushes Xord into a river of ether and seemingly drowns, with the heroes barely able to rescue Otharon. However, he reappears on the Freight Elevator, damaged but alive. After this battle, Xord gets his limbs shot off by Sharla, and remarks on his surprise on how powerful the Monado can truly be. However, before he is questioned further, he ignores said demand for answers, notes on how his eyes were opened by his ascension into a member of the Mechon, and kills himself by using his engines to thrust himself down the cavern shaft, exploding soon after.
Xord's model is later reproduced in mass as a basic minion, with these replicas first appearing during Metal Face's confrontation with the heroes shortly after the original's demise. After the events of Prison Island, the hammers the minions had were replaced with spears containing a special green fluid that is deadly to all life on Bionis. In an optional sidequest, Shulk can help Désirée decide her future. In Memory Space, the area Shulk goes to before fighting Zanza, a spirit version of the original Xord appears as a boss near the planet, Jupiter.
