Constellation
Lupus Minor
Affiliation
Wolvendom
Rarity
4 star

First off,  one of the characters you will meet once you start Genshin is Razor! Unlike any humans who live in the City of Freedom in Mondstadt, Razor lives as one of the wolf packs in Wolvendom. He was raised by Andrius who is also known as The Wolf of the North (Genshin Impact, Official Website).

Upon his first meeting with the Knights of Favoniuss Grand Master, he began to start communicating and cooperating with humans. Razors Electro Vision allows him to summon the Wolf Within that increases his attack speed mixed with Electro damage! As a human raised by wolves, he possesses unusual strength that allows him to wield his greatsword making him worthy to be a part of this list (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)

Tenryou Commission

The most reliable and trusted right-hand of the Electro Archon is none other than Kujou Sara! Kujou Sara possesses Tengu traits from Japanese folklore like her black wings and the Tengu mask she wears over her head. She is a strict woman and always obeys every order of the Raiden Shogun during the Sakoku Decree. Her elemental burst, Koukou Sendou, allows her to deal Electro damage over a certain area making her quite a difficult enemy to face against (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

Vision
None
Constellation
Viator (Aether)
Viatrix (Lumine)
Affiliation
None
Rarity
5 star

Now you might be wondering why the main protagonist of the game is ranked so low in the list. Well, thats because after their fight with the Unknown God, the Traveler lost his/her powers while stranded in the Land of Teyvat.

Traveler may be able to use elemental powers without a Visions help, but its true powers are still yet to be known and may possibly be far stronger than anyone here in this list! One of the first person he/she meets is Paimon, the Travelers emergency foo- I mean companion as he/she journeys through the land of Teyvat (Genshin Impact, Chapter 1)!

 

22. Kamisato Ayaka

Vision
Cryo
Constellation
Grus Nivis
Affiliation
Yashiro Commission
Rarity

Kamisato Ayako is the youngest descendant of the Kamisato Clan and is the Shirasagi Himegimi of the Yashiro Commission. No one can hate on this character because she is deemed as a perfect waifu for cultured people out there! With her elegance and beauty, she has instantly gained the respects of the people of Inazuma! Her personality may not be as cold as ice, but as pure as crystal. 

Her special move, Soumetsu, allows her to create a spiraling blizzard that slashes every enemy it hits! Why Ayaka made it as one of the strongest in Genshin is because of her amazing swordplay and immense charisma as part of the Kamisato Clan (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)

 

21. Klee

INFORMATION
Weapon
Catalyst
Vision
Pyro
Constellation
Trifolium
Affiliation
Knights of Favonius
Rarity
5 star

 Klee is the daughter of Alice, an adventurer who is well-known for creating the Teyvat Travel Guide. Despite being a child, Klee already has a specialty of her own and that is… creating bombs. She has been memed many times by the Genshin community because of her obsession with exploding fishes outside the city!

The Acting Grand Master, Jean Gunnhildr, acts as her babysitter when Klees mother is not around and is very strict towards the kid when it comes to exploding things. As a result, she punishes Klee by solitary confinement. Unknown to Jean, Klee uses her alone time to think of newer and stronger bombs (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

20. Qiqi

INFORMATION
Weapon
Catalyst
Vision
Cryo
Constellation
Pristina Nola
Affiliation
Bubu Pharmacy
Rarity
5 star

One of the workers in Bubu Pharmacy is the zombie, Qiqi. For a zombie, she doesnt actually look like one and still takes the form of a cute kid. When it comes to her personality, it comes off to be somewhat stale as she doesnt show much emotion because of her being a zombie but she can be very polite when talking to customers.

However, there is one person she will never get along with and thats Hu Tao, Director of the Funeral Parlor, who always persuades Qiqi to be sealed away because shes already dead in the first place. Why Qiqi is a part of this list is because of her quick attacks and her incredible healing abilities with the help of her Fortune-Preserving Talisman (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)

 

19. Beidou


INFORMATION
Weapon
Claymore
Vision
Electro
Constellation
Victor Mare
Affiliation
The Crux
Rarity
4 star

Introducing the slayer of Haishan which crowned her as the Captain of The Crux FleetBeidou! After losing her left eye upon defeating the leviathan, Beidou has not just earned the respect of every person in Liyue but also Xiao, the Conqueror of Demons! These facts alone are enough to say why Beidou deserves to be on this list.

However, she is also known to violate laws which causes her and Ningguang to have light quarrels. But even so, they still remain as great friendly allies due to their history going a long way back. Her elemental burst, Stormbreaker, allows her to possess incredible strength imbued with Electro element as she remembers the time she defeated Haishan (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

18. Yoimiya

INFORMATION 
Weapon
Bow
Vision
Pyro
Constellation
Carassius Auratus
Affiliation
Naganohara Fireworks
Rarity
5 star

 When it comes to summer, then Yoimiya is the very definition of that word! She is the owner of Naganohara Fireworks and when theres a festival, then expect some beautiful fireworks created by her! Due to her active presence in festivals, she has gained quite a reputation among the residents of Narukami Island.

To be honest, everything about Yoimiya is all about fireworks because even her combat skills are related to fireworks! And her Ryuukin Saxifrage ability allows her to fire fiery arrows to a wide area of opponents (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

17. Kaedehara Kazuha

INFORMATION
Weapon
Sword
Vision
Anemo
Constellation
Acer Palmatum
Affiliation
The Crux
Rarity
5 star

 Kaedehara Kazuha is a former member of the Watatsumi Army and is now considered as a wandering swordsman. He is known to be affiliated sometimes with The Crux along with Beidou.

Kazuha is one of the people who oppose the Raiden Shoguns Sakoku Decree because he believes that no one has the right to take people away from whats rightfully theirs. Kazuhas own sword style called Kazuha Slash, is a move where he leaves behind the winds of autumn and surrounds every enemy in its range. Kazuha may be very competent in battle, but hes still far from being a master swordsman (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

16. Hu Tao

INFORMATION
Weapon
Polearm
Vision
Pyro
Constellation
Papilio Charontis
Affiliation
Wangsheng Funeral Parlor
Rarity

 The one and only person who Qiqi avoids interacting with is none other than Hu Tao, the Director of Wansheng Funeral Parlor! As its 77th Director, she has the responsibility to keep the business alive and to carry out flawless funeral events for her clients.

She is also shown to have a keen eye as she suspects that her subordinate, Zhong Li, may be an adeptus. Well just a little more guess Hu Tao then youll have guessed the right answer! Her elemental burst is called Spirit Soother where she summons a spirit which she uses to attack against her enemies (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu). 

 

15. Arataki Itto

INFORMATION
Weapon
Claymore
Vision
Geo
Constellation
Taurus Iracundus
Affiliation
Arataki Gang
Rarity
5 star

 When it comes to comic reliefs in Genshin, Paimon is who comes to our mind first but lets not also forget the leader of the Arataki Gang, Arataki Itto! Itto is the #1 problem of Kujou Sara when it comes to his ridiculous antics and causing trouble in the city of Inazuma. Itto can be intimidating at first look, but he is one of the kindest people you will ever meet in Inazuma.

Other than earning the respect of his gang members, the residents also seem to like him especially the children he plays with. As a gang leader, he is not to be underestimated in combat as he wields a giant club to fight against his opponents and his Burst that allows him to go all out with his Raging Oni King (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

 

14. Eula

INFORMATION
Weapon
Claymore
Vision
Cryo
Constellation
Aphros Delos
Affiliation
Knights of Favonius
Rarity
5 star

The rebellious descendant of the ill-famed Lawrence Clan and the Reconnaissance Companys captain is Eula Lawrence! Eula is a tall woman with strength that enables her to wield a greatsword with ease. Of course, shes not a captain just for nothing and she has proved herself every time which eventually earned her the nickname, Spindrift Knight (Genshin Impact, Official Website).

Shes known for her flawless swordstyle because she is seen to slash away at her enemies like shes dancing with a greatsword in hand. Her ability called Glacial Illumination allows her to create a Lightfall Sword which can deal immense damage once it explodes (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

 

13. Childe

INFORMATION 
Weapon
Bow
Vision
Hydro
Constellation
Monoceros Caeli
Affiliation
Fatui
Rarity
5 star

Childe, who also goes by his real name, Tartaglia, is one of the members of the Fatui Harbinger. One of the people who posed a great threat in Liyue along with his fellow Harbinger, Signora. He is definitely a formidable opponent especially the time when Traveler faced him in the Golden House which is also where he used his Foul Legacy form that reveals his true power as a Harbinger making him more difficult to defeat.

Despite being an antagonist in the story, he still becomes a playable character in the game and is very useful in different types of combat. Though he may not have his Foul Legacy transformation available in the game, he does have his Elemental Burst called Havoc: Obliteration which allows him to perform either ranged or melee attacks imbued with Hydro damage (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

12. Yelan

INFORMATION
Weapon
Bow
Vision
Hydro
Constellation
Umbrabilis Orchis
Affiliation
Yanshang Teahouse
Rarity
5 star

Yelan is definitely the most mysterious person in this list as she claims to work with the Ministry of Civil Affairs and is always absent from her work. But in reality, she is actually an intelligence agent who works for Ningguang and uses a disguise as one of the workers in Yanshang Teahouse

When it comes to Yelans daily life, shes actually a pretty chill person and she only engages in combat only if it needs to be done, which she usually finishes quickly in a flash just so she can rest early. This tells how witty and flexible can Yelan be especially when fighting mobs because she acts like a spy and an assassin at the same time (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

11. Jean Gunnhildr

INFORMATION
Weapon
Sword
Vision
Anemo
Constellation
Leo Minor
Affiliation
Knights of Favonius
Rarity
5 star

Here comes the Acting Grand Master of the Favonius Knights, Jean Gunnhildr! Ever since Grand Master Varkas absence, Jean is the one who takes control of all of Mondstadt to maintain the peace in the City of Freedom. Shes also shown to be quite a workaholic as she is always stated to be busy in her paperworks and apart from that, she also has Klee who is quite a problematic child when it comes to bombs.

As the Acting Grand Master, she also has a good reputation not just among the Knights but also to the residents of Mondstadt. Jean is known to be a skillful swordfighter in lore and is definitely the best one you can find among the Knights of Favonius (also the reason why shes ranked this high in the list). However, when it comes to gameplay, she is seen to be more useful as a healer especially for starter players (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

10. Diluc

INFORMATION
Weapon
Claymore
Vision
Pyro
Constellation
Noctua
Affiliation
Dawn Winery
Rarity
5 star

The former member of the Knights of Favonius and the Dawn Winery owner is the one and only Diluc himself! Diluc may come off as a cool guy but hes actually a quiet and reserved type of person on the outside. He is a person whos more used to fighting alone and relies on his own combat abilities. The fun fact here is hes actually similar to the superhero, Batman. 

You know why? Because he protects the city of Mondstadt in secret especially during the night where most of the people are asleep. Due to this, hes earned the nickname Darknight Hero because no one basically knows who he is! See, just like Batman! His Elemental Burst called Dawn allows him to summon a Phoenix with his greatsword that deals heavy damage to its enemies along the way (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

 

9. Keqing

INFORMATION
Weapon
Sword
Vision
Electro
Constellation
Trulla Cementarii
Affiliation
Liyue Qixing
Rarity
5 star

Keqing is Liyue Qixings Yuheng. Yuheng refers to the person who is in charge of land, construction, and real estate so its a really relevant position, if you ask me. Just like Jean, Keqing is also expected to be some kinda workaholic because of her perfectionist attitude.

Even in her early days, shes already exposed to pressure which led her to become a very responsible member of the Liyue Qixing. Keqing is also known to respect the Lord of Geo, Rex Lapis, that she even collects memorabilia of him. As the Yuheng, Keqing also participates in combat if needed, like the time when Osial awakened and managed to hold off the Fatui army (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

8. Ningguang

INFORMATION

Vision
Geo
Constellation
Opus Aequilibrium
Affiliation
Liyue Qixing
Rarity
4 star

The business-minded woman known for her high-class standards and wisdom is the Liyue Qixings Tianquan, Ningguang! If you ever see a floating structure in the sky, then thats Ningguangs Jade Chamber that oversees every part of the city of Liyue! Born as a child who collects scraps as a living, she was given a chance at life and used the opportunity to the rise to the top.

As the Tianquan, Ningguang is the one whos in charge of laws and business operations in Liyue. Shes also very fond of Mora, the currency in Teyvat, which I think benefits her greatly in the position shes in. She also took part in the battle against Osial while using her Jade Chamber as a weapon! Thats how powerful she is in lore and some people still wonder why shes only a 4 star (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

 

7. Ganyu

INFORMATION
Weapon
Bow
Vision
Cryo
Constellation
Sinae Unicornis
Affiliation
Liyue Qixing
Rarity
5 star

Here comes another member of the Liyue Qixing and the general secretary of the said organization and that is… Ganyu! She has adepti ancestry but is not a pure adepti as she still takes the form of a human. As a general secretary, shes also not an exception when it comes to overworking and is always loaded in schedules.

Ganyu is known to be a very reserved person but puts every bit of effort when it comes to doing her tasks. But when she becomes nervous, she becomes more prone to mistakes. What makes Ganyu strong is because of her adepti ancestry which means she possesses powers like that of a god. Her Elemental Burst was also deemed as one of the meta in the game because it deals so much Cryo damage over a wide range of areas (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

6. Shenhe

INFORMATION
Weapon
Polearm
Vision
Cryo
Constellation
Crista Doloris
Affiliation
Cloud Retainers Abode
Rarity
5 star

 Born with a tragic childhood and was rescued and raised by the Cloud Retainer is a girl named Shenhe. As she grows up, Shenhe becomes the Cloud Retainers disciple and lives in the mountains far from the civilization of Liyue. Since she grew up far away from humans, she doesnt interact with a lot of people except for the Traveler who she eventually trusts.

As a descendant of a family of exorcists, she does possess powers related to it such as her Elemental Burst called Divine Maidens Deliverance where she uses a Talisman Spirit and unleashes its power against surrounding enemies while imbued with Cryo element (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

5. Yae Miko

INFORMATION
Weapon

Vision
Electro

Divina Vulpes
Affiliation
Grand Narukami Shrine
Rarity
5 star

Yae Miko is the shrine maiden of the Grand Narukami Shrine and the head of Yae Publishing House. She always comes off as a mysterious kind of person when you first meet her and is always straightforward when it comes to talking things out. Also, she can be a savage one when you get into a losing argument.

Yae is also the person who knows everything especially if its around Inazuma and its not just because she likes reading books but because shes atleast 500 years old! She also possesses kitsune traits and can transform into one whenever she likes. Her special ability, Tenko Kenshin, allows her to use the full power of a kitsune by bringing down several lightning strikes that deal deadly electrical damage to whoever it hits (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

4. Xiao

INFORMATION
Weapon
Polearm
Vision
Anemo
Constellation
Alatus Nemeseos
Affiliation
Adepti
Rarity
5 star

Introducing the sole-survivor of the 5 Yakshas and known as the Conqueror of Demons is none other than Xiao himself! A simple word to describe Xiao is that he is an extremely introverted type of guy and almost never interacts to anyone other than Rex Lapis himself and the Traveler. This is probably caused by the tragic past he encountered when his fellow Yakshas suffered a tragic fate that led to their deaths and now lives as the only living Yaksha.

Other than Rex Lapis, Xiao is deemed as one of the strongest characters in Liyue as he is an elite adepti who was summoned by Rex Lapis. His only duty is to exterminate demons that have risen after the Archon War. With his Elemental burst, Xiao wears his Yaksha mask and unleashes his full power that allows him to have incredible jumping ability and smash down his opponents with deadly Anemo damage (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

3. Venti

INFORMATION
Weapon
Bow
Vision
Anemo
Constellation
Carmen Dei
Affiliation
City of Mondstadt
Rarity
5 star

Now here comes the first Archon in the list and its the Anemo Archon, Venti or also known as Barbatos by the residents of Mondstadt. Venti is the most unusual god you will ever meet because he doesnt act like one. Hes like Peter Pan and is very carefree about everything as if theres no problem happening at all. 

Add to that, hes an alcoholic who just slips right in every celebration that happens in Mondstadt. But even if he has those unusual traits, you still cant deny that hes an Archon, a being who lived for thousands of years and is a true veteran in battling!

However, behind his carefree personality is a deep past of several experiences as one of the Seven Archons which gave him wisdom and his own philosophical beliefs. Lastly, lets not forget Ventis thousand-year-old friend, Dvalin, who has been protecting Mondstadt for over a millennium (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

2. Raiden Shogun

INFORMATION
Weapon
Polearm
Vision
Electro
Constellation
Imperatrix Umbrosa
Affiliation
Inazuma City
Rarity
5 star

Next up is Inazumas very own tyrant ruler, the Raiden Shogun! She is the Electro Archon and the one who initiated the Sakoku Decree in order to take away the Visions of other people. However, the identity of Raiden Shogun is just a puppet who acts as Inazumas ruler and is deemed to be stricter and easily resorts to violence.

Her real identity is Ei, who currently lies in the Plane of Euthymia. When it comes to Ei taking control, she is the complete opposite of the Shoguns personality as she is seen to be more sociable to people and has a more dignified way of speaking. After the Sakoku Decree has been lifted, the residents of Inazuma have their perception changed towards Ei as a tyrant (Genshin Impact, Archon Quest Chapter 2).

One of the things you wouldnt want to see when fighting the Shogun is when she draws her blade from her chest because that only means shes in god mode! Which makes her a very formidable opponent and can instantly kill anything with just a single strike and that is why she deserves this spot (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu)!

.

1. Zhong Li

INFORMATION
Weapon
Polearm
Vision
Geo
Constellation
Lapis Dei
Affiliation
Liyue Harbor
Rarity
5 star

Last but not the least… or rather the BEST is the Geo Archon himself, Zhong Li! Also known as Lord of Geo, Rex Lapis, or Morax. These several names that Zhong Li has is already enough to prove that hes made a big influence to the city of Liyue! After the Archon War, he also participated in exterminating the remaining demons by creating the 5 Yakshas. But now in the recent days of Liyue, he faked his death so that the city of Liyue will be able to teach themselves to act independently without relying on gods (Genshin Impact, Historia Antiqua Chapter) .

Now he takes the form of another Liyue resident who goes by the name Zhong Li and works at the funeral parlor along with Hu Tao. What makes him the top strongest is because Zhong Li is deemed as one of the meta characters in Genshin Impact known for his incredible defense stats and is able to last very long in boss battles. His Elemental Burst, Planet Befall, allows him to summon a giant meteor that smashes towards surrounding enemies petrifying them for a certain time (Genshin Impact, Talent Menu).

 

Conclusion 

Thats all for this list of the strongest Genshin Impact characters! These guys may be the ones deemed as the strongest right now but who knows and maybe in the future, we get to see more powerful characters yet to be released! Of course, that also means stronger characters and more money to spend!
