For those who have not completed Xenoblade Chronicles, this page or section may contain spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.

Colony 9 (epilogue) is an area in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is Colony 9, now relocated to the shore of an ocean, with the remains of the Bionis visible in the distance. It is seen only during the game's ending cutscene, and cannot be visited during normal gameplay.


Much of Colony 9 remains the same, but there are some significant changes:


The game renders cutscenes on the fly, a technique which requires less disc space than pre-rendered cutscenes and allows characters to be shown wearing the gear equipped by the player. To do this the game requires a 3D model, which is stored on the game disc in the same format as other areas like Bionis' Leg and Makna Forest.

Because it is stored in the same format as other areas, it is possible to use a hack or cheat code to visit this area. Some players have misinterpreted this and the amount of detail as evidence that the area is unused content which had originally been intended to be visited during the game. However, careful comparison shows that it is identical to the Colony 9 shown in the final cutscene. The amount of detail and completeness are likely due to it being created from a copy of Colony 9 after that model was completed.
