Villains In A Strange, Foreign Land!
Whether you love them, or hate them, or love to hate them, these are our top 5 picks for the most memorable antagonists from the entire Xeno franchise! Do be warned, however that several major spoilers are revealed in this article so use caution when reading our list if you haven't played all of the Xeno games yet.
Id is an alternate personality of the main protagonist of Xenogears, Fei Fong Wong and is incredibly evil and violent, unlike his kind counterpart Fei. When Id takes over Fei his eyes, hair, and skin color completely change. This transformation occurs several times throughout the story and sometimes creates chain reactions so terrible that many innocents perish at his hands, because of his unpredictable appearances and horrificly atrocious bouts of violence we feel that Id deserves a spot on our list!
#4: Myyah Hawwa
Basically an entity who has lived for many millenia by snatching other people's bodies and using them as her host vessel, she is a very evil and sadistic character in Xenogears who was responsible for the collapse of many civilizations throughout her existence. She is a very manipulative being who pulls many strings to get what she wants. She even took over Fei Fong Wong's mother, Karen Wong, however Karen Managed to overpower her in order to save her son, however in doing so she paid the ultimate price.
Myyah Hawwa's manipulative personality and the fact that she's literally responsible for the deaths of billions of people is why she was chosen as the fourth most memorable character in our list of the most memorable antagonists in the Xeno series!
#3: Albedo Piazzolla
An artificially created life form and major antagonist in Xenosaga Albedo is the twin brother of Jr. and is an immortal. He enjoys the pain, suffering, and deaths of humans and blames them for his misery of being unable to die. He has destroyed human colonies and towns and is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. He even despises his own kind for siding with the humans and envies their lack of immortality.
Albedo's frightening nature and the fact that he cannot die is why he was chosen as the third most memorable character in our list!
Dickson is seen as a protagonist during the first two thirds of Xenoblade Chronicles' story, however after Shulk manages to strike a truce between his people and the leader of Mechonis, Dickson betrays him a shoots him in the back, allowing the god of the Bionis, Zanza who possessed Shulk during the group's first visit to Prison Island, unbeknownst to Shulk or anyone else besides Dickson, to emerge.
He later reveals himself as one of Zanza's deciples, and eventually faces off against Shulk, Fiora, and the rest of the group when they revisit Prison Island and when Shulk fatally wounds him he seems rather proud of the fact that Shulk overcame the challenge and surpassed him. His not-so-evil nature at the end of his life is one of the biggest reasons why we chose Dickson as number two in our list of most memorable antagonists in the Xeno series!
Originally a scientist on a space colony orbiting Earth, Zanza started an experiment that destroyed the entire universe! He and his scientific colleague Mayneth were the sole survivors and were reborn as gods in this newly created reality. Originally kind-hearted, he eventually became twisted and began to fear the Homs, and his other creations and so he decided to create a cycle of destruction for those who lived on Bionis "himself".
He later possesses Shulk and even kills Mayneth and the entirety of the Mechonis. He tries to entice Shulk to become his deciple, but Shulk refuses and eventually kills him. The fact that he destoyed the entire universe and kept killing the entirety of the Bionis population time and again is why Zanza was the clear choice to be number one on our most memorable antagonists in the Xeno series list!
There you have it! From Id, to Myyah Hawwa, and Dickson, to Zanza these are the antagonists that really stood out to us in the various Xeno series titles, as always be sure to let us know what you think of our choices in our comment section below!

Developer's Interview: Our Discussion With Wee Man Studios Regarding Their Upcoming 3DS eShop Title Lifespeed!
Three Cheers For The New 3DS!
Developer's Interviews have become something far more common in recent times here at WiiWareWave thanks to their recent surge in sheer popularity so it should come as no surprise that we have another interview to share with you, our fantastic fans!
We recently interviewed Wee Man Studios regarding their upcoming 3DS eShop futuristic racer Lifespeed and we learned quite a bit about the game! Without further ado here's our interview with Wee Man Studios in its entirety:
Could you tell us a bit about your team?
[WMS]: "John Owens developed the game from start to finish and is the driving force behind the whole project. He is modest about it but really its pretty amazing for a game of this complexity and polish! Seven day work weeks have been the norm for so long that its going to be really strange when he moves to a normal work schedule.
We also had various contractors work with us throughout the project to do the bits he couldn't do and generate the artwork, music, and language translations."
How long has Lifespeed been in development?
[WMS]: "A number of years, we don't like to count! To be honest the project was probably too much for one man to take on, we made it in the end but it would have been sensible to take on something smaller.
Rookie indie developer mistake which we managed to actually see through till the end. We were lucky that I have a full time job so we have just got by on one salary for the past few years."
What kind of game is Lifespeed?
[WMS]: Lifespeed is a futuristic flying racer. You will fly ships at mach 2 down tiny tunnels and through rings to get weapons to battle against the 9 other racers. Its a fast twitchy game with a challenging old school feel to it.
What games inspired you to develop Lifespeed?
[WMS]: "The original inspiration actually came from the scene in star wars return of the Jedi where the ships are flying down the tunnels of the death star. We wanted to capture that same fast frantic rush in a race.
Pilot Wings on the SNES where you fly through a course of rings was a big early inspiration. Mario Kart inspired the fun racing fighting type gameplay."
We heard that Lifespeed is a New 3DS exclusive title! Is this true?
[WMS]: We will be bringing Lifespeed out on the New 3DS.
What made you decide to make Lifespeed a New 3DS exclusive title?
[WMS]: Simply down to performance, the New 3DS actually a much more powerful device so it allowed us to get all the features into Lifespeed that we were hoping for.
Can you tell us about the unique features of the game?
[WMS]: We think the combination of all the gameplay elements is unique; flying in 3D space, tunnels, racing, fighting the other ships, flying through rings for pickups. Haven't seen any other game with all those elements combined yet! Oh and of course you can do a barrel roll.
When can we expect Lifespeed to hit the 3DS eShop?
[WMS]: As soon as is humanly possible. Well hopefully March, difficult for us to predict as its our first time releasing an indie title.
