Monado Eater is one of Shulk's Monado arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. The colour of the blade darkens and charges dark Ether particles. This allows Shulk to thrust the energy blade towards enemies in the frontal area. Monado Eater removes buffs from and inflicts Bleed to targeted enemies.

Miscellaneous Info

  • Damage is calculated based on Shulk's current level and Ether strength.


  • Shulk will learn Monado Eater by obtaining an ancient book from King Agni's Tomb. The area is only accessible by completing a series of four quests, starting with Mystery of Makna Ruins 1 and finishing with Mystery of Makna Ruins 4.
  • The symbol that appears on the Monado when Monado Eater is activated is the kanji "喰", which literally means "to eat (a prey)". Eater thus is one of the only few arts that has a kanji that literally translates to its skill.
