"Come, Nardacyon! Let's settle this in our Skells."
— Nahum, the Red Hare

Nardacyon, the Shadowless (Japanese: 絶影のナーダシオン, Zekkage no Nādashion) is a Tyrant in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is an Almandal Ganglion machine. It can be found at level 96 at Bedrock Hold in Primordia after completing Chapter 12. It only appears after the party has engaged in battle with its pilot, Nahum, the Red Hare, and reduced her HP to about 25% while being in a Skell. It is the most powerful enemy in Primordia, and the third most powerful Tyrant in the game.

Destroying Nardacyon, the Shadowless's tail increases its attack power and speed. During battles with Nardacyon, the Shadowless, the boss theme "CR17S19S8" plays instead of the standard Tyrant theme "Uncontrollable".
