"Destiny calling for Tora. Rude not to say "hello" back."
— Tora

Tora (Japanese: トラ) is a main playable character in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. He is a Nopon who comes with a designated robotic companion called Poppi α. Poppi α calls him "Masterpon". As shown by his outfit, Tora is a boy who loves mechanics. He aspired to be a Driver, but his attempt at resonating with a Core Crystal was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, he secretly holds several trumps, like Poppi α who works as his artificial Blade, in order to fulfill his goal of becoming a Driver. He tends to call Rex "Rex-Rex" (Japanese: アニキ, Aniki, "Big Brother"). In battle, Tora can fight using the "Poppi α shield" with drills, as well as the "Poppi QT Mech Arms". He can attract enemies and direct their attacks on him while protecting his allies offering them offensive opportunities.
