We love women too, but today is male's day!

One of the most important things in Genshin Impact (if not the most one) are the characters. There are plenty of characters: women, men, kids, gods, goddesses…

But today, we’re just going to talk about the best male characters! Yes, we know female characters are amazing, but male characters deserve our attention today.

We’ll rank them based on their skills (and their looks, but that’s secondary) and what they can contribute to your team. Let’s start!

10. Kaeya

Kaeya is the Cavalry Captain of the Knights of Favonius. The first time you meet him is in the Prologue, Act I: The Outlander Who Caught the Wind. He’s sarcastic but kind, two characteristics that charmed us the first time we saw him.

He’s a Cryo sword character that can be played as Sub DPS because of his Elemental Burst.

  • Kaeya’s Elemental Skill unleashes a frigid blast that deals Cryo DMG.
  • His Elemental Burst summons 3 icicles that revolve around the character you’re using at the moment and deals Cryo DMG.
  • If we talk about his looks, he’s one of the best males because of that eye patch that gives him a mysterious aura and his dark and long blue hair. We love long hair.

9. Gorou

Gorou is part of the Inazuman resistance against Raiden Shogun’s Vision Hunt Decree. He works alongside Sangonomiya Kokomi to defeat this injustice and we see him with Kazuha too at the end of Inazuma’s World Quest.

He’s an upcoming Geo bow character whose abilities bring support to your party members.

  • Gorou’s Elemental Skill deals AoE Geo DMG and sets up a General’s War Banner. If you have 1 character in your party, this banner adds DEF Bonus; if you have 2 it increases resistance to interruption; and if you have 3, it adds Geo DMG Bonus.
  • His Elemental Burst deals AoE Geo DMG and creates a field to embolden his comrades. It provides buffs based on the number of Geo characters in your party.
  • And the most important thing about Gorou is his fluffy ears. He’s a good boy.

8. Diluc

Diluc is the owner of the Dawn Winery and he’s also a nobleman of high esteem in Mondstat and a former Knight of Favonius so yes, everyone knows him.

Diluc is a Pyro Claymore character and his main (and I would say only) rol is as a DPS.

  • Diluc’s Elemental Skill can be used 3 times and deals Pyro DMG. It has a really short CD period and you can use basic attacks in between. 
  • His Elemental Burst summons a Phoenix to knock back nearby opponents dealing AoE Pyro DMG. The searing flames that run down his blade cause it to be infused with Pyro. 
  • And as everyone knows, we love guys with long hair. It may look bad in-game, but Diluc’s fanarts are on another level.

7. Albedo

Albedo is the Chief Alchemist and Captain of the Investigation Team of the Knights of Favonius. He holds an infinite desire to learn about the world of Teyvat with Sucrose, his assistant.

  • Albedo’s Elemental Skill creates a Solar Isotoma that deals AoE Geo DMG. When Solar Isotoma hits an opponent it generates Transient Blossoms, which deal AoE Geo DMG.
  • Since Solar Isotoma is a Geo construct, it crystallizes when it makes contact with other elements. This generates crystals that shield you.
  • Also, he is very gentle and kind. We need nothing more to love him.

6. Arataki Itto

Arataki Itto is part oni and the leader of Arataki Gang. We don’t know much about him yet since he will be released soon in the future alongside Gorou. But, that doesn’t mean we don't know what he can contribute to our party and why he’s one of the best male characters!

  • Itto’s Elemental Skill summons Ushi, a kind of bull that deals AoE Geo DMG and makes Itto gain stacks of Superlative Superstrength.
  • He lets out his inner Raging Oni King and converts his attacks to Geo DMG and increases his attack speed.
  • He was defined by Mihoyo as a “buff character” referring to his bodybuild. That’s enough.

5. Kaedehara Kazuha

Kaedehara Kazuha is a wandering samurai of the once-famed Kaedehara Clan and a temporary crewmember of The Crux. He’s a really good friend to Beidou and he usually travels in her ship to visit Liyue.

He’s an Anemo Sword character whose main role is support, but some people use him as a DPS, can you believe it? They’re insane.

  • Kazuha’s Elemental Skill deals AoE Anemo DMG and lifts him into the air.
  • His Elemental Burst summons Autumn Whirlwind and deals AoE Anemo DMG. If it comes into contact with other elements (except Geo), it’ll deal additional elemental DMG of that type.
  • Kazuha charmed our hearts the very first time we saw him in Beidou’s ship. His kind and gentle aura reflects perfectly his inner personality. He has some issues, but that makes us want to protect him even more.

4. Thoma

Thoma is the housekeeper for the Kamisato Clan. He was born in Mondstat but he moved on to Inazuma a few years ago. We met him for the first time in the port of Inazuma, when we arrived with Beidou’s ship. He’s our guide on the island.

  • Thoma delivers a flame-filled flying kick that deals AoEPyro DMG with his Elemental Skill. It absorbs Pyro DMG.
  • He spins his polearm and deals AoE Pyro DMG with his Elemental Burst. It also deals AoE Pyro DMG whenever you do a basic attack every 1s.
  • His personality is kind of playful, joyful, and gentle, three aspects that everyone loves in a character. He’s sometimes compared with Tartaglia because of this.

3. Tartaglia

Following danger wherever he goes, Tartaglia (or Childe) is always ready for a challenge and to freeze our hearts like a real Snezhnaya’s citizen. He’s also the Eleventh of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, alongside other Harbingers like Signora or Scaramouche.

  • His charged attacks deal the Riptide status, a kind of mark that deals AoE Hydro DMG when they’re being attacked by Tartaglia.
  • Tartaglia’s Elemental Burst deals AoE Hydro DMG and applies Riptide. This is helpful to freeze enemies with a Cryo shield or vaporize with a Pyro shield, dealing even more DMG. 
  • Honestly, you just have to look at him and hear his laugh when he flies to understand why he’s so loved. Also, his desire to protect his family is very charming. We love good boys.

2. Zhongli

Our best shield character couldn’t be other than Zhongli, the Geo Archon, and the consultant of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. He works alongside Hu Tao, two characters that charmed our hearts since the first time. Do you think it is destiny?

  • When you hold, Zhongli's Elemental Skill creates a shield that absorbs DMG based on Zhongli’s Mx HP. It deals AoE Geo DMG too.
  • His Elemental Skill can create a Stone Stele that causes AoE Geo DMG too.
  • Zhongli is Genshin Impact’s supreme husbando and that’s a fact. That’s why he deserved the second position on this Top.

1. Xiao

We’re finally here! We present to you everyone’s favourite male character: Xiao!

Xiao is an Adeptus, whose original name is Alatus, and the only known remaining member of the five Yakshas dispatched by Morax (or Zhongli). He resides in Wangshu Inn and loves food.

He’s an Anemo Polearm character and his role is DPS. Xiao is also one of the best Genshin Impact’s DPS, alongside Hu Tao, Ayaka, or Ganyu.

  • Xiao lunges forward with his Elemental Skill and deals Anemo DMG to opponents in his path. It can be used in mid-air.
  • His Elemental Burst increases his jumping ability, his attack AoE and DMG, and converts attack DMG into Anemo DMG.
  • Xiao’s mysterious aura and his desire to protect people from demons make him a great male character. He can be too emo sometimes, but that’s a part of his charms.

These were some of Genshin Impact’s best male characters but, in the future, I’m sure there will be more and some of these will disappear from the Top.

Everyone has their own opinion, this was just our opinion. You might like Chongyun or Xingqiu more than Xiao or Zhongli. We don’t understand it, but we respect it!
