Nopo'rikh is a Nopon in Xenoblade Chronicles. He can be found anytime at the Armu farm in Colony 6.

After completing Missing Lodger he lives with Ma'crish and will be in the Armu farm from 04:00 to 12:00. If the Smelly Perfume A route is chosen during Looking for Freedom, he will move out and stay in the Armu farm 24 hours a day.

If Nic comes to Colony 6, Nopo'rikh asks the party to help him in Nic's Training. Nopo'rikh's and Nic's destinies are decided after defeating the Canyon Valencia and Tempest Vangs.

Nopo'rikh location 4am

Nopo'rikh's location at 4am.

In the English language version of the game, unlike most Nopon, Nopo'rikh noticeably speaks with fewer grammar tics associated with Riki and most other Nopon, explaining that it's because he had lived with Ma'crish in Alcamoth for so long. However, not being native to Alcamoth, Nopo'rikh's speech still has more grammar tics than Kaleka, a ninth generation Nopon native of Alcamoth who speaks fully articulated sentences with no Nopon grammar tics whatsoever.
