Orluga Rufus are minor enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles. They are members of the Orluga family, and can be found at level 37 near the Tower of Trials - Bridge in the High Entia Tomb, as one of the four basic enemies in the tomb. Orluga Rufus are the strongest monsters, statistically, in the tomb. They are the only enemies to drop the Rufus Control Units needed for Getting a Member's Card.

Orluga Rufus regular enemies appear after the story event boss has been defeated in the Valley of Emperors. They always appear alone. Unlike the story event boss version, these can summon a level 36 Hover Astas.


Orluga Rufus are bio-mechanical beings constructed as guardians for the High Entia Tomb. They are bipedal and incredibly large, towering over the party. They are a sickly-yellow/green colour. Their heads are covered by a mask with two large discs attached, and their forearms are encased in a pair of mechanical gauntlets. They have a device composed of Andos parts mounted on their backs which fires an R Laser attack. It is unknown whether the Orluga Rufus controls this device, or whether the device controls it like the Hode riders seen on some other Orlugas.
