Filiavents (Japanese: ナグァダ, Nagwada) are huge Piscinoid enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles X. They resemble sea anemones; their bodies can extend to great heights during battle, and they can hover slightly off the ground. They can be found in Noctilum, Sylvalum, and Cauldros. During battles, filliavents primarily use electric-based attacks.
"The largest of all Miran mollusks, filiavents stay anchored to the ground, feeding on other creatures that come too close. To do so, they contract their lengthy bodies and then swallow their victims whole—along with everything else in the vicinity. All matter then enters the digestive tract, where it is liquefied by powerful acids."
"Reproduction also takes place while anchored to the ground. On the night of a full moon, filiavents release a myriad of sperm and eggs into the atmosphere. While most are eaten by other creatures, one in a few thousand survives to be fertilized. Because infants have many predators due to their small size, few of them survive into adulthood—despite the presence of a defensive electrical discharge."
Filiavents fall into two color variants:
- Red filiavents are beige with dark red details. They can drop Red Filiavent Tentacles.
- Black filiavents are purple with dark yellow-green details. They can drop Black Filiavent Tentacles. They are only found in Cauldros' White Phosphor Lake.
