Genshin Impact tier list – all characters ranked

All Genshin Impact characters ranked in our Genshin Impact tier list

April 15, 2021: Rosaria has made her way into our tier list!

Our Genshin Impact tier list will help you decide which of the various characters to play in this enormous, Zelda: Breath of the Wild-like RPG on mobile. There are actually a considerable number of Genshin Impact characters, so you likely won’t know where to start when picking the ultimate character to play. Well, that’s exactly where we come in.

We’ve spent a bunch of time with each of the Genshin Impact characters, ranking them against each other in numerous different areas to come up with this tier list. There are also rumours of new characters on the way, and we plan to update this guide with them as soon as they’re available. So, as a result, we recommend that you bookmark this list and keep checking back to keep on top of the latest changes.

If you’re looking for other games to play, we thoroughly recommend checking out our best Android games and best iOS games lists, which feature the best that mobile has to offer. We also have specific best mobile RPGs and best mobile MMORPGs lists for those looking for something similar. Anyway, let’s kick off our Genshin Impact tier list.

Genshin Impact characters list


Albedo is a well-known alchemist in the service of the Knights of Favonius. He is renowned for his limitless, obscure knowledge, and research is his one true love. If you need some help with this character, take a look at our Genshin Impact Albedo guide.


A three-time winner of the Gliding Championship in Mondstadt, Amber is an Outrider in the Knights of Favonius. If you’re on the lookout for a good build, head over to our Genshin Impact Amber guide.


The most popular bard of Mondstadt, Genshin Impact’s Barbara is also the Deaconess of the Favonius Church.


Bane of all sea beasts, Genshin Impact’s Beidou is a powerful warrior that can draw lightning into her sword.


The last remaining member of Benny’s Adventure Team, Bennett is known for his unfortunate luck. We also have a handy guide to help you master Genshin Impact’s Bennett.


You might not think it to look at him, but Genshin Impact’s Chongyun is actually a famous exorcist, and very capable of ridding the land of evil spirits.


By day, he runs a business, but by night he’s a legendary hero. No, we’re not referring to Batman. We’re talking about Genshin Impact’s Diluc, who runs the Dawn Winery and is, secretly, the Darknight Hero. If you want to know how to master this character, take a look at our Genshin Impact Diluc guide.


This bartender at the Cat’s Tail is curious, as she absolutely hates alcohol despite producing some of the best wine in the region. Here’s our recommended build for Genshin Impact’s Diona.


An investigator for the Adventurers’ Guild, Genshin Impact’s Fischl is a bit of an odd character that travels with a night raven, Oz.


A half-human, half-Qilin hybrid. Ganyu is known for being quiet, graceful, and gentle. However, among friends, Ganyu’s true personality shines and she shows off her wild side. Make sure you take a look at our Genshin Impact Ganyu guide!

Hu Tao holding her hat against a white background


Genshin Impact’s Hu Tao is out now! She will enter the ranks of our tier list as soon as we have a chance to play her.


As Grandmasters of the Mondstadt Knights, Genshin Impact’s Jean is a pretty big deal. She is confident, loyal, and tackles challenges head on.


A trusted member of the Knights of Favonius, Kaeya is a powerful warrior in his own right.


It’s safe to say that Keqing isn’t really a fan of the gods, preferring that humanity solve its own problems. For more information, take a look at our Genshin Impact Keqing guide.


Absolutely explosive mad, is Klee, who goes so far as to refer to her bombs as treasure. What would she do without Jean to help her? If you need some help getting to grips with this explosive master, take a look at our Genshin Impact Klee guide!


An intelligent witch that loves a nap, Lisa is the librarian for the Knights of Favonius. You score this electro character for free pretty early on, if you’d like some help mastering her, we’ve created a Genshin Impact Lisa build guide.


An arrogant astrologer, Mona isn’t in it for the money. Which she should be, considering how much grief it causes her. If you’re interested in trying out the hydro character, take a look at our Genshin Impact Mona guide


Living in the skies above Liyue, Genshin Impact’s Ningguang owns the Jade Chamber.


Though a maid for the Knights of Favonius, Genshin Impact’s Noelle dreams of becoming a knight herself someday.


An alchemist that cannot die, Qiqi is very forgetful. That explains why she’s always whipping out that notebook. If you need some help with this character, take our Genshin Impact Qiqi guide!


Growing up amongst wolves, Genshin Impact’s Razor is more at home in the forest than cities. Having said that, he chooses to fight with a massive sword rather than his teeth and nails. That’s probably for the best.

A girl raising her hand to her face
