As in the first game in the series, Killing Machines are made through synthesis - however, they have been downgraded to A-Rank. They still require the same fusion process, but given the amount of time needed to fuse a mechan-o'-wyrm, and the abundance of Phantom Swordsmen in the wild, fusing a hunter mech with a phantom swordsman is generally the better choice. They can also be found in the Dark World, from one of the random portals on the floor. Just as with other monsters in the Dark World, they are very difficult to scout, but with proper team preparation can be done.

Killing machines are also necessary to fuse Overkilling machines, and both are needed to fuse Sagittar.
