Anemo characters Xiao and Kazuha looking at each other in genshin ImpactmiHoYo

Genshin Impact’s Anemo characters are gifted with the most utility. With plenty of crowd control and healing, they can help ensure your carries hit huge combos. Here’s a list of every Anemo character in Genshin Impact ⁠— both currently released and upcoming.

Anemo characters in Genshin Impact are more renowned for their utility than their damage, but that doesn’t mean it’s a one-dimensional element.

There’s still plenty of variety within the archetype, and it’s also one of the most flexible, given that Anemo can combine with almost every other element in the game to deal big reaction damage.

All Anemo characters in Genshin Impact

Faruzan is a new 4-star character introduced in 3.3.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Bow

Faruzan is a skillful unit that can buff Anemo DMG and decrease opponents’ Anemo RES. She excels in teams focusing on the Swirl Elemental Reaction, which means Faruzan works well with characters like Wanderer, Xiangling, and Bennett.

Heizou is another playable character to join the ranks in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst

Despite being a 4-star character, Heizou has a high base ATK.  You should focus on building his Elemental Skill, which you can hold to deal an even more powerful blow. Heizou can be an excellent addition to Electro-Charged teams consisting of Yelan, Yae Miko, and Kuki Shinobu.

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

The acting grandmaster of the Knights of Favonius, Jean puts everything on the line to protect Mondstadt. She barely gives herself time to rest from the nation’s political affairs, although she wouldn’t have it any other way as she tries to maintain her legacy.

That same selfless personality translates onto the battlefield. Jean specializes as a tank in Genshin Impact, where she can take a lot of damage and then heal a massive amount of health with her Elemental Burst. She’s also great at locking enemies in place with her Elemental Skill.

Kazuha is one of Genshin Impact’s best characters, period.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

Kaedehara Kazuha has no fixed address on Teyvat. A wandering samurai from a famed clan, he is onboard Beidou’s crew. His politeness can be quite in contrast to the rest of The Crux, but being more in touch with nature out at sea has put Kazuha at ease.

Kazuha puts his samurai heritage to good use, utilizing a mix of Anemo crowd control and plunging attacks to set up his allies and dish out the pain himself.

  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Sword

Lynette serves as a magician’s assistant to her brother, Lyney, a playable 5-star Pyro character. Lynette’s DMG is based on her ATK stat, while her self-healing ability scales off 25% of her Max HP. She can serve as a decent Support unit on Swirl teams with Xiangling, Ganyu, and Kokomi.


Genshin Impact character Sayu posing screenshotmiHoYo
Fun Sayu fact: Her English voice actor is popular Twitch streamer LilyPichu.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore

Sayu isn’t your typical ninja. Instead of lurking in the shadows to hunt enemies, she puts her powers to work to sleep whenever she can in an attempt to grow just that little bit taller. She is also affiliated with the Shuumatsuban, which is part of Inazuma’s Yashiro Commission.

Despite her love of sleep, Sayu does have some combat ability, mostly as a damage-soaking tank. She can roll herself up into a ball to take less damage with her Skill, as well as give her party a big heal on her Elemental burst.


Sucrose in Genshin ImpactmiHoYo
Sucrose’s experiments have been a wild success for Genshin Impact players who use her.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst

Sucrose is an alchemist based in Mondstadt, helping out Albedo as his assistant. With a particular interest in bio-alchemy, she tries to imbue living objects with extra power ⁠— experiencing mixed results. Despite her curiosity, she is a recluse and very shy.

Sucrose is a popular support in Genshin Impact thanks to her accessibility as a four-star. She can also hold multiple charges of her Elemental Skill, unlike most other characters, which, when combined with a weapon like Sacrificial Fragments, allows her to clump together enemies and deal big splash damage with Swirl.

Traveler (Anemo)

Anemo is the first element you can imbue your character with in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

The original Traveler, Anemo, is the first element you harness the powers of after dropping into Teyvat. After completing the Prologue, you’ll become attuned to Wind thanks to the Statues of the Seven.

The Anemo variant of the Traveler ⁠⁠has access to a vortex that can hold enemies in place while applying Swirl, as well as a massive tornado with the same effect. It’s great for combining with other elemental reactions like Pyro, Hydro, or Cryo to spread damage far and wide.


Venti abilitymiHoYo
Venti uses the power of the Anemo Archon himself to set a howling gale across Teyvat.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Bow

Venti is the human form of the Anemo Archon. Also known as Barbatos, he now takes on a rather unassuming form as a happy-go-lucky bard who loves his wine. He makes a few appearances throughout the main story, mostly at Mondstadt’s Angel’s Share.

On the battlefield, Venti is a formidable Anemo support, using his abilities to throw enemies into the air and lock them in place to generate huge elemental reactions.


Scaramouche in Genshin Impact

  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst

Wanderer not only succeeds at being an excellent Main DPS, but he is also useful for exploration purposes. This is due to his ability to float, which allows for an infinite number of Charged Attacks. However, you should consider shielding Wanderer due to his frequency of being interrupted.

Therefore, Wanderer should be added to teams consisting of characters like Faruzan, Bennett, and Thoma. You could also replace Thoma with Zhongli if available.


Xiao during Elemental Burst in Genshin ImpactmiHoYo
Xiao’s Elemental Burst is one of the strongest in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Polearm

Xiao is a Liyue adeptus, and the only remaining member of the five Yakshas that defended the region from demonic spirits thousands of years ago. The “Conqueror of Demons” now finds himself isolating from modern-day Liyue so as to not burden others with his karmic debt.

Unlike the other Anemo characters, Xiao is renowned for his hard-hitting DPS. Once he pops his Elemental Burst, he can spam plunging attacks to deal a huge amount of damage in a wide area, making him arguably Genshin’s best melee carry.
