Hello, and welcome to our ongoing guide to every Unique Monster location in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. There's a ton of these massive beasts to find and fight in Monolith Soft's latest adventure — somewhere in the region of around 140 — and plenty of them are super-tough to locate, hidden away in secret areas and hard to reach spots.

In order to help you lovely folks out in your hunting endeavours, we've put together Unique Monster Location guides for every area in the game. In this particular guide, we're moving on to the endgame region of Origin and the Origin Interior. Let's get stuck in!

Before You Get Started - A Few Notes For Beginners

Just before we kick off properly here, remember that a lot of Aionios is locked off by traversal methods, story beats and other obstacles when you start out, so don't stress if you can't access a certain area just yet. You'll eventually be able to make your way around the entire world map!

Furthermore, it's handy to remember that, once you beat a Unique Monster, they'll leave behind a Named Grave that you can fast-travel to in order to try your hand at beating your PB time for smashing them. Our maps below use these Named Graves as markers to indicate where you'll find each creature.

Also, please note, we've got one or two more high level monsters to add to this guide, which we'll endeavour to do ASAP. OK? Let's go get 'em!
