The Ares 70 (English dub: /ˈɛərˌiːz/) is a Skell in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is one of the strongest non-customized Skells in the game. Its power can be surpassed by a highly customized level 50 or 60 Skell. The stronger variation is the Ares 90. When flying it has the unique effect of phoenix wings sprouting from its Flight Module when boosting instead of the usual jet streams. When moving, it "skates" on the wheels in its feet.
