The Clifftop Bayern (Japanese: 崖上のバイエルン, Gaijō no Baierun) is a Unique Monster in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is a member of the King family, and can be found at level 32 at the summit of Daksha Shrine on Bionis' Leg, where the Giants' Mirror is also found. It will not appear until the party approaches the eastern edge of the shrine, at which point it will emerge and immediately attack.

It is difficult to get a battle start affinity because the Bayern does not emerge until the party is within its detection range. However, it can be done by retreating far enough to exit the battle and then quickly returning to the shrine while the Bayern is still in the open.
