Malos is an antagonist in Xenoblade Chronicles, second-in-command to the secret organization Torna that wishes to destroy the world. From a visual perspective, his armour is similar to a cyber-samural with repeated plates, and a chestplate identical to his boss, Jin, who he is seen to be very close to in the game.
While the game features no explicit content about Malos and Jin, several players have queerly read the two as to have had some kind of relationship in their past, and also in the final cutscene, Malos was told that the wish to destroy the world was a choice that he made ‘together’, implying with Jin.
