Shulk MonadoPurge

Monado Purge is one of Shulk's Monado arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is known as Monado Breaker (モナドブレイカー) in the Japanese version. The colour of the blade turns light green upon activation. Ether particles are charged onto the blade, allowing Shulk to send a wave of Ether particles to the enemy from afar. This art will inflict the enemy with Aura Seal, which removes any active auras and temporarily blocks the enemy's spike and aura activation abilities. It also inflicts Damage which is calculated based on Shulk's current Ether strength and the art's multiplier.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Shulk's Standard Special, Monado Arts, allows him to use a Monado Art that briefly increases and decreases certain attributes of his. The first art that will appear will always be the jump art, which makes Shulk jump higher, and increases the height of Air Slash, but decreases lateral midair movement and defense. Monado Jump is unique to Super Smash Bros., and technically has no connection to Purge, however the two arts bear some similarities. As said before, Jump increases Shulk's jumping capabilities, and in the original game, Shulk jumps into the air before using Purge. Also, the color Shulk glows when using Jump is the same shade of green the Monado glows when Shulk is using Purge.


  • Shulk learns this art during the confrontation with the Telethia at the Lakeside in Makna Forest.
  • The symbol that appears on the Monado when Monado Purge is activated is the kanji "破", which means destroy/break/rend. In the Japanese version, this art is described as a Monado's shock wave destroying/breaking the aura (of the enemy).
