"Find us, Monado. Sword of the Bionis. We will meet you on the battlefield."
— Yaldabaoth

Yaldabaoth (Japanese: ヤルダバオト, Yarudabaoto; English dub: /ˈjældəˌbaʊθ/), also known as Gold Face, is a Faced Mechon in Xenoblade Chronicles. It is a key antagonist of the game and serves as the true leader of the Faced Mechon. Yaldaboth can control any Mechon at will using this armour. It is the largest and strongest Faced Mechon ever built.

Story

Valak Mountain

Yaldabaoth first appears at Valak Mountain to stop the fight with Mumkhar and to pick up Face Nemesis. Here it reveals that his name is Egil and he says that if Shulk wants Face Nemesis, he must continue on to Galahad Fortress, and states that Shulk and his friends are "more than welcome on Mechonis".

Galahad Fortress

When the party escapes from Face Nemesis' attack in Galahad Fortress, it falls. When it lands, Yaldabaoth, as Gold Face, appears alongside of Face Nemesis. There he generates the Apocrypha, Ether waves opposite to the Monado's, which cause it to malfunction. After a short fight between him and Face Nemesis, she pushes Yaldabaoth down from the fortress. However, it flies away from Face Nemesis.

Agniratha

When the party confronts Egil at the Meyneth Shrine in Agniratha, he calls Yaldabaoth. When Yaldabaoth is defeated, Yaldabaoth takes control of Mechonis and destroys Agniratha with a massive energy blast.

The final sighting of Yaldabaoth

After the destruction of Agniratha, Shulk and his group return to the Central Factory in the Junks. Then the group reach the Apocrypha Generator. After the battle against it, the group must go into the Mechonis Core to stop Egil. Egil is inside Yaldabaoth and Shulk and the others must defeat him. During the battle, Shulk sees in a vision in which Yaldabaoth destroys Bionis with an infinitely powerful attack, Bionis Slash X. Shulk and the others must defeat three Energy Devices in two minutes in order to complete the story quest Save Bionis, or else Bionis will be destroyed and all the members in the party will be killed. When the group wins, Shulk spares Yaldabaoth and Egil, and they realize that they can live in peace. Unfortunately, when Zanza emerges from Shulk's body and takes over Bionis, it kills Mechonis and with it, Yaldabaoth and Egil, who fight to the very end.

Trivia

  • Yaldabaoth is a name of the Demiurge in Gnosticism, maker of man but jealous of their spirit.
  • Yaldabaoth's sword (and presumably by extension the Mechonis's sword) resembles the Seven-Branched Sword of Japanese legend.
  • There is a trophy representing Yaldabaoth in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Quotes

  • "This is the strongest Mechon ever built, controlled by me, Egil."
