Genshin Impact: 15 Best Character Designs

In the open-world game Genshin Impact, the characters have some of the best designs of any gacha game to date. They all have a mediaeval, aristocratic, and elegant setting that seems to fit the strange world in which they are set. People agree that the game is one of the best RPGs to come out in a long time. Each character has a unique style that seems to fit them so well.

15 Best Character Designs in Genshin Impact

We’re going to pay attention to how things look. If you really like the way a character looks, you should still try to help them even if they aren’t very good in battle. These are the characters whose designs make them stand out the most so far in the game.

1

Kokomi

Kokomi
Kokomi

Sangonomiya Kokomi is the Watatsumi God’s Priestess. As the leader of the island, she has to look regal and true to the area. People can see how much Kokomi looks like the coral island as soon as they see her.

Her design pretty much screams “Watatsumi” with its salmon pink and navy-blue color scheme. Her clothes are decorated with things that look like corals and pearls, which are found in the ocean. Sangonomiya Kokomi wears a dress that looks like a kimono and a low-cut suit underneath because she is from Inazuma.

Yoimiya

Yoimiya

Yoimiya might not be the best unit in Genshin Impact, but she looks very friendly. She is also dressed in a kimono, like the other Inazuman characters, but only on her left side. The right side is draped over her shoulder and waist. Yoimiya hides herself with sarashi under her kimono. This white cloth is also around her right thigh and left forearm.

Yoimiya’s palette is red and orange when she uses the Pyro Vision. This can be seen in her kimono, her red flower tattoo, her golden eyes, and her strawberry blonde hair.

Beidou

Beidou

The Crux Fleet’s Captain looks way too good to be a sailor. Her dark brown hair falls to her waist and goes through the Electro Vision that is chained to her chest. Beidou’s outfit is red, which is different from most people who can control thunder.

Beidou wears a sleeveless dress that looks like a qipao, a red shawl with fur on it, and fingerless gloves that go up to her elbows. Her hair is styled with a gold pin that has a blue tassel on the end of it. Beidou wears this same tassel as an earring next to her red eyepatch on her left side.


4

Keqing

Keqing
Keqing

The main color of this Electro unit is purple, which is very different from Beidou. The two tails of Keqing’s light purple hair are tied together. Keqing makes her buns look like cat ears on top of her head (which is likely her most distinctive feature). She proudly wears a big gold hairpin on the left side of her head, even though many people think it’s old-fashioned.

The Yuheng’s eyes are made of amethyst and have diamond-shaped pupils, just like Keqing’s whole palette. Keqing covers her purple-and-white dress with a lavender coat. She adds white flowers and purple feathers to this outer layer to make it look more interesting.


5

Ningguang

Ningguang
Ningguang

Ningguang definitely looks like the leader of Liyue. Like Beidou, the Tianquan wears a dress without sleeves that looks like a qipao. It is gold and has beautiful embroidery on it. Ningguang’s hair is long enough to reach her knees and is almost as long as her dress.

On both her left and right hands, Ningguang wears nail guards. This item came from the Qing dynasty, when it was used to show who was important. Fingernail guards show that the person wearing them doesn’t need to use their hands because their subordinates do everything for them. Putting them on both hands shows how powerful the person is. This is something that only Ningguang would do. After all, she has more money than anyone else in Teyvat.


6

Shenhe

Shenhe
Shenhe

Genshin Impact fans fell in love with Shenhe as soon as it was announced that she could be played. Most people were drawn to her because of how she looked and what she was wearing. Her story quest is the cherry on top.

Shenhe has long, silver-white hair that turns black at the ends, which is the color of her natural hair. The black bodysuit is the main part of her outfit. A cropped dress covers the area between her neck and breasts. Shenhe’s body is hit with some bright red ropes, which are meant to stop her from killing people.


7

Signora

Genshin Impact: 15 Best Character Designs
Signora

La Signora is one of the NPCs who looks the best so far. This woman, whose real name is Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter, has been hurt for so long that she is completely loyal to the Tsaritsa. This is likely why Signora looks scary and dangerous to people who don’t know her. Her red and black color scheme adds to this sense of danger.

Underneath all of these first impressions, though, are careful details that fit Signora’s name, Rosalyne, which could mean “beautiful rose.” On both sides of her hips and on the back of her head, where two rose-shaped buns are tied, you can see this trait.


8

Raiden Shogun

Raiden Shogun
Raiden Shogun

Raiden Shogun has the best design of all the female characters you can choose from right now. The Electro Archon looks as majestic as her home country, Inazuma, with her purple braided hair and purple kimono.

Due to the Japanese influence in the area, Raiden Shogun’s clothes have a number of Mitsudomoe symbols on them. Travelers can see them on the badge in front of her clothing, the pauldron on her left shoulder, and, of course, on the kimono itself. In the land of Inazuma, this symbol stands for the highest honor.


Even though there aren’t that many male characters to start with, it’s clear that some are more attractive than others. Here are some of the best examples of how male characters in Genshin Impact are drawn.

9

Diluc

Diluc
Diluc

Even though MiHoYo cut Diluc’s hair like she did Albedo’s, the tavern owner’s clothes are still fit for a nobleman. Darknight Blaze is the name of his default skin, which is black and red. His coat and pants are dark, but his eyes and hair are bright red, giving him a lot of color.

Diluc is a member of one of Mondstadt’s three most powerful families, the Ragnvindr Clan. Diluc is the richest person in the area of Freedom right now because of his winery business. However, make no mistake. Even though he seems cold, the ex-Knight will do anything to keep Mondstadt safe from danger.


10

Kaedehara Kazuha

Kaedehara Kazuha
Kaedehara Kazuha

Kazuha is from a noble clan of samurai in Inazuma. The Kaedehara clan fell apart because of bad luck, so Kazuha didn’t get anything from them. When his friend was killed in a fight with Raiden Shogun’s representative, that was the last straw for the samurai. After seeing his friend lose, Kazuha stole his Vision and has been on the run ever since.

Like his abilities in the game, Kazuha’s appearance is based on maple leaves. One part of his platinum-blonde hair has a streak of orange & red. He wears a black and red scarf over his outfit, which is based on Japan. Both his coats and pants are made to look like maple leaves.


11

Arataki Itto

Arataki Itto
Arataki Itto

As an Oni, Arataki Itto took on the traits of the yokai of Inazuma. This includes Itto’s red horns, which are the most unusual part of his design. He ties an Oni mask to his hip to show how proud he is of being an Oni. “His outfit has a rare air of awesomeness about it,” they say.

Arataki Itto is the tallest character in Genshin Impact as of version 2.6. He is also the fittest because his clothes show off his well-defined abdominal muscles. Itto’s white hair goes all the way down his back, and at the end, it turns red. His eyes and some parts of his body also have this color. The Oni has a choker with spikes around his neck that holds the Geo Vision.


12

Tartaglia

Tartaglia

The eleventh Fatui Harbinger certainly knows how to put on a show. Unlike his colleagues, who like to stay out of the way, Tartaglia loves to show off on the front lines and is drawn to any fights that happen.

Childe wears a grey jacket with a red banner tied around his chest and shoulder. As he fights with his Hydro sword, the banner behind his back flies free and glows, adding to his dramatic ability. On one side of his head, there is a red Fatui mask, which goes well with his orange hair and stands out against his blue eyes.


13

Xiao

Xiao
Xiao

When thinking about Xiao, it’s most interesting to picture him in his Illuminated Beast form. Xiao is said to have an Adeptus that looks like an animal. The most common idea is that the Yaksha will look like the winged-God Garuda, since his name is Alatus and his design is based on a Garuda.

Still, Xiao has red makeup on his golden eyes, like Zhongli and Cloud Retainer, because they are similar. His hair is teal, and there is a purple diamond on his forehead. The Vision is on Xiao’s left glove, while the Yaksha mask is on his right hip.


14

Kaeya

Kaeya
Kaeya

Kaeya is one of the most interesting people Genshin Impact players will meet at the start of their journey. Kaeya is a very interesting person because of this and also because of how charismatic he is.

Even though not much is known about his past, most people would agree that he has great style. The fur collar on his stylish clothes shows off his chest among all the wraps. Kaeya wears an eye patch, which makes him even more mysterious. Unlike Beidou, though, he is not a pirate (nor is he a pirate’s son or daughter!).


15

Zhongli

Zhongli
Zhongli

People say that Rex Lapis, the Geo Archon, has had both male and female forms. But no matter what they change into, they always have the same bright amber eyes. Of course, this trait is most noticeable in Zhongli, who has a serious face and eyes that stand out because of their color. Like the other Archons, his dark brown hair turns amber at the ends, just like the other Archons. This highlight will also light up when Zhongli uses his Geo skill.

His brown and amber waistcoat matches the color of his hair. Zhongli has a tassel earring in his left ear, and his “Vision” is on a chain around his back. Fans would be surprised to learn that this outfit is the Archon’s “leisurewear of choice,” given how classy it is. No one can even guess what his best clothes would look like.

Genshin Impact can now be played on PS4, PS5, Mobile, and PC. A version for the Switch is in the development.
