The world of Genshin Impact is filled with wonders, adventures, and characters that roam the enormous landscape. As more characters make their way to Teyvat, some instantly create a huge impact with their immense power. From a gameplay or lore point of view, here’s our list of the strongest Genshin Impact characters you can obtain and use in your party.
There is no doubt that Tartaglia or Childe is one of the most versatile characters in the game. His AoE Hydro Damage and hybrid bow-and-polearm setup makes him an excellent damage dealer (suitable for a Main or Sub-DPS role). More than his combat skills, let’s not forget that he is the Eleventh of the Fatui Harbingers, has an army at his expense, is wealthy, and has Delusion powers – making him a force to be reckoned with.
As the acting Grandmaster of the Knights of Favonius, people look up to Jean as a strong individual who eats unrest for breakfast. The Dandelion Knight has her hands full in maintaining peace and order across Mondstadt. On the battlefield, this 5-Star Anemo sword user has great healing (based on her attack stat) paired with an Elemental skill that can launch multiple enemies above before blasting them off cliffs straight into their doom.
Albedo, Chief Alchemist of the Knights of Favonius, is unique. His strength lies in his Solar Isotoma, which can deal massive AoE Geo DMG and is one of the strongest in the game. As a synthetic human, it’s frightening to hear him drop hints that he’ll destroy the entire city one day. What’s even more exemplary is Albedo’s immense intelligence and knowledge of Teyvat. Albedo lives up to the saying that knowledge is power.
The sound of Xiao’s title alone, “Bane of All Evil,” has a mighty ring. Seriously, when he puts on that Yaksha’s Mask, it feels like the endgame. With the increased jumping ability and attack AoE and DMG, Xiao can easily wreak havoc, purging evil as a DPS dealer. He is capable of doing the heavy lifting for any team. Besides, being alive for more than 2000 years has given Xiao the luxury and advantage among ordinary mortals. Longevity is power.
The 5-Star Venti (or Barbatos) is a tone-deaf bard considered one of the most powerful Anemo characters in the game. His Elemental Burst that creates an AoE damage hurricane can suck enemies and deal continuous Anemo DMG is worth investing. He can also levitate! Venti would’ve been a supreme archon if Signora didn’t hijack his gnosis. Despite that, he still holds an Archon-level power that can protect a whole city and shake up an entire landscape.
This half-qilin Adeptus has been alive for thousands of years, so that alone sets the tone for her superiority. Besides being an S-tier damage dealer, this archer is perhaps one of the best DPS Cryo characters in the game. Freezing is the name of the game for Ganyu, with her Frostlake Arrows and Elemental Burst sending enemies to a halt as shards of ice rain down with piercing Cryo DMG. Pair her with Shenhe, and you got yourself a frigid pair.
Let’s go straight to the point; the Spindrift Knight is extremely strong. Eula boasts of having the single biggest attack damage made in Genshin Impact. Given the right build and configuration, how does dealing six million points of physical damage sound to you? Her Elemental Burst is the centerpiece of her attack. Eula may hit often, but take our word for it; she hits hard.
Raiden Shogun is not only powerful but also has a massive following among Genshin Impact fans. The Electro Archon, albeit a battery, if you followed the story, has nonetheless got what it takes to go toe to toe with the strongest Archon-level beings across Teyvat. Her Elemental Burst also works wonders, providing recharge for others when she uses it, while Raiden grows stronger when others use theirs.
What’s frightening about this Funeral Director is that she is one of the best Pyro DPS characters in Genshin Impact, and a hard-hitting one at that. Her enormous Elemental Burst AoE can demolish even the strongest of foes. Her Spirit Soother not only deals Pyro damage, but it also provides healing when it hits. These things justify Hu Tao’s inclusion to any party and meta.
The Vago Mundo and current vessel of the Geo Archon, Morax, has power, experience, and knowledge. Imagine faking his death because no one can kill him is a huge testament to Zhongli’s superiority. In battle, Zhongli’s ability to summon fortifying shields that scale according to his HP is the best in the game, further cementing his mighty stature. Pair him with Itto or Albedo, and you’ll know what invincible means.
