Mechanical Rhythm is Disc 4, Track 15 on the Xenoblade Original Soundtrack. It is the battle theme for when the party attacks an enemy on all Mechonis locations with the exception of Sword Valley. It also plays in the cutscene when the Junks flies into the Ventilation Conduit in the Mechonis' Central Factory.

New Battle!!! from the music of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 uses a motif from this track. As part of a promotional video for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, this track was rearranged by Tomori Kudo.

The piece was performed on both day 1 and day 2 of Nintendo Game Music Live!, a series of performances of Nintendo music by rock band and big band as part of the Nintendo Switch Experience event on 14/15 January 2017.
