For those who have not completed Xenoblade Chronicles 2, this page may contain spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.
Bosses are enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. As with most games, they tend to appear at the end of a specific portion of the game, they are related to the story event (directly or not, like Quest ones). Bosses have unique names, they can be a character or a monster, they have high stats and potentially unique skills. The first boss encountered by the party is the King Crustip during the game introduction.
Bosses can be identified by the emblem that appears behind the level on their field icon. If a boss must be defeated for story progression, they will also have a special Compass icon (two exclamation points in a diamond) left of their name in their window frame.
