All Zenless Zone Zero characters so far

Let's take a look at the Zenless Zone Zero characters and factions in Hoyoverse's exciting upcoming action adventure title bursting with intriguing individuals.

Zenless Zone Zero characters Nicole, Anby, and Billy

There are plenty of intriguing Zenless Zone Zero characters to meet in Hoyoverse’s exciting, upcoming title, with more popping up all the time. So, to keep you up to date as you prepare to dive into this urban fantasy ARPG, we’ve gathered all the intel on every ZZZ character we’ve met so far.

We’ll update this guide whenever we find out more, so be sure to keep checking back in the lead-up to the Zenless Zone Zero release date. We also have plenty of content covering Hoyoverse’s other existing titles, including our Honkai Star Rail tier list and Genshin Impact tier list.

Here are all of the Zenless Zone Zero characters we’ve seen so far:

ZZZ Proxies

‘Behind seemingly peaceful streets, Proxies operate in a warped reality.’

A group called The Proxies plays an extremely important role in New Eridu. And, as Hoyoverse invites you to ‘live dual identities, two opposing personas’, you, the player, take the role of a proxy in this exciting new world.

Firstly, what does proxy mean? Well, outside of ZZZ, a proxy is an individual with the authority to represent someone else and is usually a term used in voting. As such, proxies are people in the ‘real world’ who control Bangboo in order to help clients navigate the warped reality known as the Hollows.

The young man, Wise, and woman, Belle, are the Zenless Zone Zero Proxies and they’re similar in some way to the Genshin Impact Traveler and Honkai Star Rail Trailblazer. You get to choose either the male or female character to traverse the town with, then take control of the other ZZZ characters from the different factions in the warped reality.

Zenless Zone Zero characters - four different members of Gentle House against a purple background

Gentle House aka Cunning Hares

Gentle House, aka Cunning Hares, is the faction that gets the most screen time in promos and trailers, and features heavily at the start of the second beta. Described as the Odd-Job Agency, Gentle House’s emblem shows a grinning pink bunny surrounded by stars.

Here’s what we know about the members so far. If you’d like to know more about each of them and see them in action, we’ve linked the full builds (including gameplay showcase videos) below.

  • Anby DemeraZenless Zone Zero Anby‘s age and past are a mystery. She was accidentally taken in by Nicole, and ended up joining Gentle House, gradually growing into a strong and trustworthy companion. She’s known for her advanced combat abilities, and has a deep love for movies, but is also seen as the codependent ‘baby bird’ of the group.
  • Nicole Demara – a tall, pink-haired woman with golden eyes and white and black clothing. Zenless Zone Zero’s Nicole is the one who brought Anby under her wing and into the Cunning Hares. She’s seen carrying a briefcase that transforms into a weapon during battle.
  • Billy KidZenless Zone Zero’s Billy is a mysterious robot in a human disguise. He sports red clothes, a black faceplate with glowing, gold eyes, and spiky white hair. Billy wields dual pistols and has a sharp eye for shooting.
  • Nekomiya Mana – Nekomiya Mana, better known as Zenless Zone Zero’s Nekomata, wears black and red clothes and has black and white cat ears and a tail. She appears to fill a rogue role, as she moves around at great speeds, attacking her enemies with a flurry of blades.

Zenless Zone Zero characters - the members of Belobog Industries against a yellow background

Belobog Industries

Belobog Industries emblem is a roaring bear wearing a hard hat. This ties in with the industrial theme shown in the members’ clothes, who are all wearing white jumpsuits with caution tape accents, and wielding weapons that look like tools, such as drills. In the beta, we learnt that they are indeed involved in construction work, and deploy a whole host of robotic friends to help them out.

You may recognize the name Belobog from Honkai Star Rail, but in our Zenless Zone Zero interview, the producer tells us this is a coincidence. If you’d like to know more about each of them and see them in action, we’ve linked the full builds (including gameplay showcase videos) below.

  • Anton IvanovZenless Zone Zero’s Anton is a tall man with cool red and black spiky hair, a caution tape-style headband, and a jacket over his shoulders. He wields an arm-mounted drill.
  • Koleda Belobog – A short, red-haired woman, described as ‘small but sweet’. This fiery lady wields what appears to be a hammer-drill hybrid. We have a guide with plenty more information on Zenless Zone Zero’s Koleda right here.
  • Ben BiggerZenless Zone Zero’s Ben is a huge, hulking bear with a scar over his eye, a gold chain, and sharp fangs, wielding a large hunk of metal that seems to be a cross between a construction hammer drill and a minigun or rocket launcher.
  • Grace Howard – a dark-haired girl with a genuinely caring nature who is intelligent, rational, and also very elegant. Zenless Zone Zero’s Grace has some official art that shows her wielding a gun with orange accents on it.

Zenless Zone Zero characters - Victoria Housekeeping members against a grey background

Victoria Housekeeping

Victoria Housekeeping Co. consists of characters dressed in costumes that make them look the part of traditional, Victorian butlers and maids. They offer their housekeeping services for a fee, but they don’t just clean homes – they clean Hollows too.

If you’d like to know more about each of them and see them in action, we’ve linked the full builds (including gameplay showcase videos) below.

  • Corin Wickes – In fitting with the name of the faction Zenless Zone Zero’s Corin fits into, she wears a classic, black and white maid’s dress, accompanied by shackles on her wrists, chains around her waist, and a cute, teddy bear backpack.
  • Von LycaonZenless Zone Zero’s Lycaon is some kind of animal-human hybrid, with white fur and a butler’s outfit, complete with golden knuckle dusters and mask.
  • Alexandrina Sebastiane – Zenless Zone Zero’s Alexandrina or Rina for short appears to be followed by some strange little mechanical ghosts. Other characters note how elegant she is and mention she’s a wonderful cook.
  • Ellen Joe – A young girl with a sleek shark-like tail and a weapon that looks like a gun. Zenless Zone Zero’s Ellen is a fan of the simple things in life and likes taking a break from work whenever she can.

Zenless Zone Zero characters - the members of Section 6 against a blue background

Section 6

Here’s what we know about the two characters Hoyoverse has shown from Section 6. Soukaku features in the second closed beta, but Miyabi isn’t available.  If you’d like to know more about each of them and see them in action, we’ve linked the full builds below.

  • Soukaku – The first character in this faction is an oni-like character, with blue skin, white hair, horns, and ears. Zenless Zone Zero’s Soukaku wears a mask that reminds us of Genshin Impact’s Xiao and wields what appears to be some kind of shovel, banner, or fan atop a pole.
  • Hoshimi Miyabi – The other is Zenless Zone Zero’s Miyabi, who appears as a kitsune-girl character, with large, black fox ears. She has glowing, red eyes and wears a dark blue kimono while wielding a huge, glowing katana.

OBOLS

We don’t know too much about OBOLS right now, but we do know that Soldier 11 is a member.  If you’d like to know more about the silver-haired soldier and see her in action, we’ve linked the full builds (including gameplay showcase videos) below.

  • Soldier 11 – This mysterious white-haired girl belongs to OBOLS, and she follows her orders very loyally. During the second closed beta test we got the opportunity to fight alongside her and help her out on a mission. Check out our Zenless Zone Zero Soldier 11 guide to find out more about her.

Criminal Investigation Special Response Team

Part of New Eridu Public Security, the Criminal Investigation Special Response Team is a new faction that first appeared on the Zenless Zone Zero website. As it was revealed following the second CBT, we don’t know much about it yet, but it appears to be akin to law enforcement, with its members responsible for protecting the citizens of New Eridu and maintaining order in the city.

We think it’s likely that the uniformed guards we see patrolling Sixth Street are actually members of New Eridu Public Security, though we’re unsure whether we’ve met any members of the Criminal Investigation Special Response Team itself just yet.

Currently, we only know of one member of this faction.

  • Zhu Yuan – leader of New Eridu Public Security’s Criminal Investigation Special Response Team, Zhu Yuan is a hard worker who takes her job seriously and is always ready to offer a helping hand to New Eridu’s citizens. To find out more about her, check out our Zenless Zone Zero Zhu Yuan guide.

Other Zenless Zone Zero characters

Naturally, we’re focused mostly on the butt-kicking fighters taking down monsters. However, there are a few other characters that caught our eye.

  • The Bangboo – There are a bunch of cute, squishy, bunny-like critters hopping around throughout. These are called Bangboo and are robots that help the people of New Eridu go about their days. 
  • Eous – Bangboo 01, Eous accompanies Belle and Wise on their hollow explorations, acting as their conduit as they dive into the unknown. It’s got a pretty sweet personality outside of the hollows, too, showing great affection for Belle, Wise, and its other bangboo friends.
  • Bangboo 18 – Bangboo 18 works alongside Belle and Wise in the Random Play video store. It doesn’t really matter that people often can’t understand what it’s saying, because 18 always managed to attract customers due to how cute it is.
  • Elfy – A beautiful, elegant robotic lady, Elfy is the owner of the Bardic Needle record shop. As a side hustle, she also helps the Proxies by forging disk drives to make your agents stronger.
  • Enzo – Owner of Sixth Street’s Remodeling Shop, Enzo is a tall man with a beard, a robotic arm, and a snazzy fashion sense. He’s not only highly adept at repairing cars and other gadgets, but can also help you upgrade your Bangboo, too.
  • Howl – Undeniably the most good boy in town, Howl is an utterly adorable dog that runs a news stand on Sixth Street. Swing by to grab your daily scratch card, catch up on the latest gossip, and give our furry friend a couple of scratches. You won’t regret it.
  • General Chop – General Chop is an unusual red man with multiple robotic arms who runs the Waterfall Soup restaurant on Sixth Street. Talented and passionate, he’s capable of whipping up the best ramen in town, and each dish he makes can offer your agents a variety of handy buffs.
  • Asha – The epitome of geek chic, this gorgeous gal runs the Goldfiner arcade on Sixth Street, and is always happy to see you take those games for a spin. Anyone for a round of Soul Hound?
  • Tin Master – Part percolator, part robot, all barista, Tin Master is the owner of Coff Cafe on Sixth Street. He’s always experimenting with new brews to tantalize your taste buds, and each cup is so good that it boosts your battery charge and offers your agents special buffs.
  • Buy, Ask, and Give Change – Head over to 141 on Sixth Street and you’ll find three adorable little bangboo running the show. The hardworking cuties have been working at the store for years, and they’ve always got some bargains on offer – most importantly, a steady supply of chips that you can use to upgrade your agents.
  • Sage in a Barrel – There’s something unusual about the trash can near the 141 store on Sixth Street… Maybe you should go check it out next time you’re in the area?
