Darien sent in a quick question about the recently-released Xenoblade X – let’s take a look:
Some years back, I asked you about the symbols displayed on the Monado in Xenoblade Chronicles. Well, in Xenoblade Chronicles X, there’s a side-quest involving a “Nopon Sword of Legendariness” that’s obviously a goof on the Monado, complete with symbol. Is this one also Japanese? If so: wossit mean?
Thanks as always!
First, in case you missed it, here is where I looked at the meanings of the different Monado symbols in the first Xenoblade game.
Now here’s an image of the Xenoblade X item in question:
This one’s pretty simple – the symbol appears to be a ポ (seen in reverse in the image above), which is “po”. I assume it’s the “po” in Nopon.
There’s probably not much more to it than that, but I thought I’d share it here as a simple little article for fellow Xenoblade fans!
On a separate note, updates have been a bit sparse lately, but fret not! I’ve been working on some posts for recent in-depth reader questions, so look forward to those in the near future!
