Topple is a status in Xenoblade Chronicles. It causes the target to fall down and removes the enemy's resistance to daze. When a target is down, it cannot dodge and thus attackers can hit the toppled target with 100% accuracy. Critical damage increases by 25%. Furthermore, ether attackers will land all critical hits against a toppled target. The topple duration for enemies is 3 seconds, but it can be extended by using another topple art. Arts that inflict topple are colored green. Some enemies have a topple spike, which damages or debuffs party members that attack them while toppled.


  • All Mechon, including Faced Mechon, have a longer topple duration by 50% (i.e. 4.5 seconds)
  • Near the end of the game, some enemies such as the Superbosses have a shortened topple duration by 50% (i.e. 1.5 seconds)
  • The duration of a topple on an enemy stacks with every topple-inducing art applied. Through a strategy usually referred to as Topple Locking, a player can keep an enemy toppled for an entire battle.
