Papils (Japanese: パピリオ, Papirio) are butterfly-like creatures in Xenoblade Chronicles X. They can be found in all five regions. They are similar to Adseculas and Turbas, and share some Arts and material names.


"Butterfly-like creatures that use their elongated mouths to suck the sap from tall trees. Papils tend to seek out trees with poisonous sap, as they can store the toxic agents in their throats and then spit them at enemies when threatened. The glowing scales that disperse from their wings also contain poison."

"Unlike adults, the larvae have a rather bland physical appearance, which aids them in mimicking tree leaves."

Papil is derived from the Latin pāpiliō, meaning butterfly.
