Vortice, the Deific Blast (Japanese: 爆熱神ヴォルティチェ, Bakunetsu-shin Vorutiche) is a Tyrant in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is a member of the Colubrim family and can be found at level 94 above the caldera of Mount M'gando in Cauldros during brimstone rain weather. It is the most powerful enemy in Cauldros. Defeating it is required to complete the eponymous basic mission Vortice, the Deific Blast.

During battles with Vortice, the Deific Blast, the boss theme "CR17S19S8" plays instead of the standard Tyrant theme "Uncontrollable".
