Peculiar Machines







Monster Type is a Standard Machine enemy in NieR: Automata


Monster Type Information

"Outfitted with extra parts, this reverse-jointed, Goliath-class macine resembles a dinosaur more than ever. It uses energy stored in its dorsal fins to fire lasers from its mouth."


Monster Type Locations

  • Appears on route C, in the forest by the waterfall closest to the Forest Zone: Center access point
  • Appears for the first time during Twin's Request (you do not need to kill him to complete this quest)
  • Appears extremely rarely afterwards, always on route C chapters. (Confirmed 14-01, 13-01 and 13-03)



Monster Type Drops




  • Usually has other machines around, highly suggested to kill them first.

  • While it might be an obvious reference due to the base design, it's fire/laser breath attack is identical to Godzilla's atomic breath in the 2016 movie "Shin Godzilla".

      For those trying to complete their game's Unit Data an you cannot find itt on your in game list, even though you killed it already, just know it is listed in the Peculiar Machines tab instead of the one the wiki says. I personally thought my game glitched for a few minutes because of that. At least it does for the Xbox One version.

        for those who missed it in the quest (like I did), don't worry, chapter select the part where A2 first awakens, go to the forest through the shopping center jump down to the section below where the waterfalls are, if you move in the right place some linked-sphere type/snake-like enemies will come out of the ground, kill them and go to the closest access point and save. load the save and go where the enemies you killed were and the monster type should be there, if not keep loading the same save until it eventually shows up. Good Luck!
