Genshin Impact: 15 Powerful Female Characters

Genshin Impact: 15 Powerful Female Characters Ranked (2022)

Video games have long been a medium that has acknowledged and contributed to women’s empowerment, from classic icons like Samus and Chun-Li to an even more significant amount of modern-day female characters.

Genshin Impact alone has so many powerful female characters that it’s hard to pick the best as well as the strongest ones from them.

Some of the women of Genshin Impact are arguably the most powerful characters in the game. Because it is one of the most versatile games of its type, the strength of its female characters mainly depends on the players and their playstyles. 

But in this article, we’ll try our best to focus on the aspects of power that are compatible with different playstyles and will also rely on the characters’ story aspects for further accuracy.

Strongest Female Characters in Genshin Impact 

Here are 15 of the most powerful Genshin Impact female characters and scale their powers in terms of both the gameplay and the canon

15. Madame Ping

Since Madame Ping isn’t playable, very little can be said of her strength. It’s instead the fact that she’s held in such a regard that ranks her above some of the other Genshin Impact women.

She does display a lot of strength during the fight with Osial, some of which she also lends to the Traveler. The power she lends allows the Traveler to conjure shockwaves strong enough to break through Fatui shields.

Another skill of hers is making a dimension of her own through the teapot. She may be very aged during the game’s events, but she must definitely have been one of the strongest characters of the franchise in her prime. 

14. Beidou

The Uncrowned Lord of the Ocean is one of the game’s most esteemed characters. She’s fearless enough to not even flinch against Ningguang, the Tianquan of the Qixing. 

Beidou is an exceptional Electro option. She can create an Electro shield around a nearby party member with her Elemental Burst. Wielding Claymore also allows her to use her sword for both aggressive and defensive purposes.

13. Traveler (Lumine)

lumie genshin impact

While she (and her twin Aether) has the potential to be one of the most powerful characters in the whole game, what puts her so far below in the ranking is her canonical nerfing caused by the story’s main antagonist. 

Before being sent to Teyvat, the twins were literally gods of their realm. Their canonical nerfing aside, they’re also commonly listed at the bottom of gameplay tier lists too, but that doesn’t change the fact that no one else in Teyvat can possess control of multiple elements.

The twins are also supposed to get buffed in the future in terms of both the gameplay and the lore, which may boost Lumine to an even higher rank. 

12. Eula

eula genshin impact

Eula, a descendant of the tyrannical Lawrence Clan, wants to dissociate herself from her family’s notoriety. She despises her clan to the extent of being vengeful toward anyone who associates her with it. 

Thanks to her Elemental Skill and Burst, she’s one of the strongest DPS units of Genshin Impact. She can strike every enemy in the AoE and can consume every Grimheart stack with her Icetide Vortex. She also has the ability to hit five times in a row.

11. Jean


Jean is the elitest of The Knights of Favonius. Following the departure of the previous Grandmaster of The Knights of Favonius, she is currently their acting Grandmaster, which alone makes her highly credible. 

The status of being a grandmaster has put the entire region’s army under her control, which has only added more to her strength. Not to forget that she’s a Vision controller too.

10. Klee


While discussions regarding her power levels are often sarcastic, that doesn’t make her any less formidable. The fact that she can level the Stormbearer Mountains is a good example of her power.

Aside from an absentee God from Liyue, no one in the lore has ever accomplished such a feat.

9. Hu Tao 

hu tao genshin impact

The 77th director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor is generally known for her offbeat humor, an example of which is how she sells her funeral plans to even the most infallible people. She may not enjoy fighting, but that’s in no way an indication of powerlessness.

If anything, Hu Tao is one of the game’s most desired Pyro users. She can summon flame spirits to attack every enemy in the AoE at the expense of some of her HP through her Elemental Burst, Spirit Soother.

She can also increase her attack depending on her HP through her Elemental Skill, Paramita Papilo. 

8. Ganyu

ganyu genshin impact

Blessed with exceptionally long life, Ganyu is a candidate to be a deity due to her being half-Adeptus. As of the current lore, she works for the leader of the Adeptus Zhongli, the Rex Lapis.

Despite Ganyu not wanting to engage in action due to her preference for her administrative work, she’s a strong fighter but falls short compared to other Adepti like Xiao.

What fundamentally ranks her higher than many other Genshin Impact women is her immortality.

7. Alice

Very little is known about Alice’s powers due to her not being playable, but from what we know, she’s a force to be reckoned with. Much like her daughter Klee, she’s a fairly overpowered mage. 

An impressive ability of hers, as seen in the recent in-game event, is to enchant islands and discover hidden island chains. Why we aren’t ranking her higher is due to there being few feats from her. Regardless, those we’ve seen are worthy enough to cement her placement on this list.

6. Ningguang


Ningguang, the Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing, is the wealthiest in Teyvat. She maintains Law in Order in Liyue and is a symbol of fortune and wit for the entirety of Teyvat. Diluc is also known for his wealth, but even he doesn’t compare with Ningguang. 

She’s one of the most powerful Geo-using characters in the game. Her Elemental Burst produces projectiles that deal a great amount of damage. For her next attack, she rallies seven Star Jades and charges them at the enemy for prominent damage.

Unlike the Adepti, she may not be immortal, but her sheer strength and status put her ahead of most of them.     

5. La Signora

La Signora

La Signora is the strongest member of Snezhnaya’s elite and is the current leader of the Fatui Harbingers. Forces like the Knights of Favonius are also extremely powerful, but even they’re outmatched by the Fatui Harbingers. 

La Signora is easily one of the game’s most hellish bosses and has access to both Cryo and Pyro. She’s such an overpowered Vision user that she was able to steal Venti’s Gnosis with ultimate ease. 

4. Vennessa


Vennessa, last known for undergoing a trial in Celestia, was even a candidate for godhood due to her legendary rebellion against the tyrannical Decarabian. Even keeping that aside, she was a Mondstadt royalty. 

What elevates her position in this list to this extent is that it’s extraordinary for a mortal to be a godhood candidate. Lore-wise, she was so powerful for a mortal that even the gods of Celestia were astonished.

It’s a bummer that a character so powerful may never be playable, but from the lore alone, she’s easily one of the franchise’s strongest mortals, to say the least.

3. Shenhe


For someone who nearly turned into a monster after being cursed by their own father, Shenhe is extremely overpowered. While most of her powers reached their peak due to her foster-mother Cloud Retainer, she’d been toughening herself ever since she was cursed. 

She deals a lot of damage through her use of Cryo. She can even buff other Cryo characters via her Elemental Skill, Spring Spirit Summoning. Her Elemental Burst creates a Tailsman Spirit that deals heavy cryo damage to enemies and helps decrease their Cryo resistance.

Only recently, she was able to defeat a being as strong as Beisht, who’s the wife of Osial.

2. Yae Miko

Yae Miko

This may be a relatively controversial placement because Yae has always held her skills and powers back. She had to Scaramouche via trading Ei’s Gnosis even while saving the Traveler. And despite her Electro Catalyst use being tremendous enough, her builds are so versatile that it’s a hassle to choose from them.

What places her so high in this list, however, is that she’s able to even break into the Raiden Shogun’s Eternity plane when she utilizes her full potential. 

1. Raiden Shogun

Raiden Shogun

While Ei, the current Raiden Shogun, may not use her powers to their full potential, the mantle still provides her the same amount of power as her sister, who was the original Raiden Shogun. A swing of her sword alone can reshape the landscape of Inazuma. 

She’s arguably the most powerful Electro user. Her Elemental Burst allows her to deal serious damage even when off the field. The same skill recovers HP for her team too.

Her being an Archon lets her go toe-to-toe with not just other Archons but also the most fearsome beings in Teyvat.


Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with this ranking, we hope the list was able to cover the strongest facets of all the listed characters.
