Hover Astas are two story exclusive enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles. They are members of the Astas family, and can be found at level 33 in the High Entia Tomb. These two Hover Astas only appear during a story event battle in the Hall of Trials on level GF, where Melia must face them alone. They can drop Astas Remote Units, three of which are needed for A Necessary Upgrade, or the New Cylinders needed for Restoring the Capital 2.

There is another variant found in the High Entia tomb. Shulk and the party face it as one of the basic types of enemies. As with all of the monsters in the High Entia Tomb, it is a Sight Category monster. These normal Hover Astas appear at all other locations in the tomb.
