Battle narrator
Japanese VA Kentaro Tone
English VA Stanley Townsend
Appearances Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Torna ~ The Golden Country

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country feature battle narration. During combat, certain situations will cause a voice to announce the situation, or praise the player. Its volume can be controlled using the "Battle Narration" volume slider in the options.

The voicelines are slightly different in the English and Japanese versions of the game, but they are English utterances in either case, and they play in identical situations. Some situations have multiple potential voicelines, only one of which is chosen (assumed to be at random).

The editor who added this tag elaborates: Some unknown triggers, Japanese voice lines


  • There is little indication that the battle narrator exists in-universe; the voice is never attributed with a body, and seldom acknowledged by characters. A rare exception is a banter event in Torna ~ The Golden Country, in which Haze and Lora quote one of his lines and Minoth mentions that the quote is familiar.
  • The order in which the narrator announces Fusion Combos depends upon the Driver Combo stage. The reason for this is unknown; it may have been to avoid "Break Wind", a euphemism for farting in English.
  • The English battle narrator voice, Stanley Townsend, also voices Triton in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
