Tora (トラ) is a playable character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Tora is unable to become a real Driver, so as a workaround he built Poppi, an artificial Blade.

Appearance and personality[edit]

Tora is an oddly-large-for-his-age orange Nopon with tiger-like brown stripes across his body. He wears a pair of blue overalls over a white shirt, a purple bandolier with several pouches, and a pair of gold-rimmed goggles on his head. Tora's age is ambiguous, but it is clear from his behavior that he is an older child or younger teenager.

Tora is a young, intelligent, and friendly Nopon who dreams to become a Driver despite his lack of aptitude, and to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather by creating the first Artificial Blade. He highly looks up to Rex as a role model, calling him "Rex-Rex" (アニキ, Big Brother). Having spent most of his time in his house working on Poppi, Tora can be rather naive and awkward with others despite his good intentions. He has a large interest in cute or "blushy-crushy" (moe) things, particularly maids, and is usually very enthusiastic about showing it to others.

Story arc[edit]

Xenoblade Chronicles 2[edit]

Tora's first effect on the plot is to launch a weapon at the authorities because he doesn't like how they're bullying someone. Luckily, the "Boom Biter" strikes a water pipe, dousing the fire Blade Brighid and allowing Rex, Pyra, and Gramps to get away. Tora steps out of his hidey-hole and invites them to his hidden house to help them lose the soldiers. He then proceeds to declare that he's decided "Rex-Rex" is now a friend and mentor of his for being such a good Driver, and is willing to help them rescue Nia and Dromarch from the troops. But to do so, he needs help (financially) - he's very close to completing an Artificial Blade, one started by his dead grampypon and missing dadapon. Rex agrees, and it isn't too long before Tora is able to complete Poppi, who immediately proves invaluable in sneaking aboard the Titan Battleship where Nia is being held.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3[edit]

Tora makes a brief appearance during Nia's narration on how Aionios came to be, overlooking the construction of the Alrest half of Origin along with Nia and three unidentified individuals. Tora also made an appearance in a photograph of the party as the world splits back into Alrest and Bionis respectively.


  • Tora learned to play the Whispercorder when he was five years old.

As a playable character[edit]

Main article: Tora/Gameplay (XC2)

As Tora is not a real Driver, his own gameplay is fairly limited, having access to very few predetermined Blades. These Blades are very good, however, and while his own arts are somewhat locked into making him two parts defender and one part attacker, with proper investment he can be carried into being the best player-controlled character in the game.

As an enemy

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Tora appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a Spirit. He also appears on the Cloud Sea of Alrest stage in the background alongside his Blade, Poppi.
