Lugalbanda, the Wanderer-King (Japanese: 放浪王ルガルバンダ, Hōrō-ō Rugarubanda) is a Tyrant in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is a member of the Chimera family. It can be found at level 88 at the Vitriol Cesspool in Noctilum after completing Chapter 12. This location is inaccessible to Skells, so Lugalbanda must be fought on foot. It can summon Stray Ovis for assistance by using an Art called "Lunchtime".

This monster is notable for dropping the very powerful Longsword, Bewitched Glaive: Receding Rust.

During battles with Lugalbanda, the Wanderer-King, the boss theme "CR17S19S8" plays instead of the standard Tyrant theme "Uncontrollable".

Additional Details

"The only chimera to escape the Lifehold Core. Being a hermaphroditic organism, it roams the planet in search of ample nourishment to facilitate its reproduction."
