The Ancient Machine is a boss in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is fought at level 8 in the Colony 9 area. It is accompanied by a first version on the left. This second Ancient Machine has a higher ether power but a lower physical strength than the first one. Upon reaching the Cylinder Hangar, the party is forced to fight two of them to continue the story.

The two Ancient Machines are guardians of the Cylinder Hangar, and attack, by Shulk, Reyn and Fiora, mistaking them for the true threat. It is only after this that the raid on Colony 9 begins.
