Anemo characters in Genshin Impact are known more for their utility than their damage, but that doesn’t mean it’s a one-dimensional items.
There’s still a lot of variety within the archetype, and it’s also one of the most flexible, given that Anemo can be combined with almost every other item in the game to deal heavy reaction damage.
If you are looking for an Anemo character to complete your team, here we have a list of each of them so you can make the right choice.


Rarity: 5 stars
Weapon: Sword
Jean, the grandmaster of the Knights of Favonius, risks everything to protect Mondstadt. She barely gives herself time to rest from the nation’s political affairs, though she wouldn’t have it any other way as he tries to uphold his legacy.
That same selfless personality translates to the battlefield. Jean specializes as a tank in Genshin Impact, where she can take a lot of damage and then heal a large amount of health with her elemental blast. She is also great at locking enemies in place of her with her essential Ability.


Rarity: 5 stars
Weapon: Sword
Kazuha does not have a fixed position in Tivat. A wandering samurai from a famous clan, he finds himself aboard Beidou’s crew. His politeness may contrast with the rest of the fleet, but being more in touch with nature at sea has put Kazuha at ease.
Kazuha uses his samurai heritage, using a combination of Anemo’s crowd control and dive attacks to set up his allies and dish out the damage himself.


Rarity: 4 stars
Weapon: Heavy Sword
Sayu is not your typical ninja. Instead of lurking in the shadows to hunt down enemies, she puts her powers to work, sleeping whenever she can in an attempt to grow a little bigger. She is also affiliated with Shuumatsuban, part of Inazuma’s Yashiro Commission.
Despite her love of sleep, Sayu has some combat ability, primarily as a damage-absorbing tank. He can roll up into a ball to take minor damage from his Ability and give his party a big heal on his Elemental blast.


Rarity: 4 stars
Weapon: Catalyst
Sucrose is an alchemist based in Mondstadt who helps Albedo as her assistant. With a particular interest in alchemy, she attempts to imbue living objects with extra power⁠, experiencing mixed results. Despite her curiosity, she is timid.
Sucrose is widespread support in Genshin Impact thanks to his accessibility as a four-star. She can also have multiple charges of her Elemental Ability, unlike most other characters, which, when combined with a weapon like Memories of Sacrifices, allows her to bunch up enemies and deal heavy damage.

Traveler (Anemo)

Rarity: 5 stars
Weapon: Sword
The original Traveler, Anemo, is the first item you harness the powers of after falling to Tivat. After completing the Prologue, you will attune yourself to the Wind thanks to the Statues of the Seven.
Traveler’s Anemo variant ⁠⁠ has access to a vortex that can hold enemies in place while applying Whirlwind and a massive tornado with the same effect. It’s great to combine with other elemental reactions like Pyro, Hydro, or Cryo to spread the damage far and wide. However, it is preferable to use the Traveler in its Geo variant.


Rarity: 5 stars
Weapon: Bow
Venti is the human form of Archon Anemo. Also known as Barbatos, he now takes on a fairly straightforward form as a happy-go-lucky bard who loves wine. He makes a few appearances throughout the main story, mainly in Mondstadt.
Venti is formidable Anemo support on the battlefield, using her abilities to launch enemies into the air and lock them in place to generate huge elemental reactions.


Rarity: 5 stars
Weapon: Spear
Liyue’s Adeptus, the only living member of the five Yakshas, is one of the most powerful characters in Genshin Impact.
Unlike the other Anemo characters, Xiao is known for his hard-hitting DPS. Once he sets off Elemental Burst from him, he can send dive attacks to deal a large amount of damage over a wide area, making him the best melee in Genshin Impact.


Weapon:? (It is believed that it will be Catalyst)
Little do we know about Heizou yet, but at least HoYoverse has already confirmed that he is an Anemo character. Although the latest leaks consider that he will carry a Catalyst as a weapon, he also has a traditional Japanese weapon, the site.
