You don't just pull them for their gameplay.

15 hottest guys in Genshin Impact, ranked

Genetics within Teyvat's population of Vision holders and the like are top-tier, especially where men are concerned. They imbue the game with life through their unique personalities and backstories, and they revive us with their undeniable hotness. Although every man in Genshin Impact has a place in our hearts, only 15 can make it to the top of the leaderboards.

15 - Albedo

Albedo may not choose to go out on the town, but he seems like a fan of cozy dates at home. If you're lucky, you can watch him sketch wildlife or an undiscovered plant. With his Elemental Skill, he can lift you up into the sky, granting you an excellent view of nature. Spending time with a creative individual like Albedo is sure to rub off on you, perhaps helping you discover new hobbies and art forms.

14 - Shikanoin Heizou

While Heizou may chronically spoil the plots of crime shows, we admire his pursuit of justice. Heizou is a thoughtful character who frequently checks in on the protagonist's well-being. He is a curious soul who's always happy to share his new breakthroughs. We'd love to spend more time with Heizou and hear about the wrongs he helped make right. He seems like a guy who would enjoy cozy library dates.

13 - Kaedehara Kazuha

Kaedehara Kazuha sees everything with a lens of beauty, but he probably doesn't realize that he's the most beautiful person you and I have laid our eyes upon. Couple that with his calm and laid-back demeanor, and his rare penchant for poetry has made him quite eloquent at prose—which he'll likely use to casually slide in some extra-romantic lines to catch us off-guard.

12 - Diluc

Diluc is one of Genshin Impact's OG hotties, having fulfilled simps' hearts from the first day we stepped foot onto the massive world of Teyvat. From his fiery red hair to his stoic personality to the mounds of cash sitting in his safe in the Dawn Winery, what else do you need in your ideal husbando? Diluc has it all.

11 - Cyno

Cyno knows the best places in Sumeru's desert and will likely show you around if you ask. Sure, he may hunt down academic wrongdoers, but you should be fine if you cite your sources properly. We'd love to sit down and listen to the stories he tells, perhaps with a cold lemonade to squelch the scorching heat. While he babbles about the new rare card sleeve he's eager to use in the next TCG match, you and I will be busy staring at his irresistible abs.

10 - Arataki Itto

We can't listen to one of Itto's voice lines without smiling. His character is fun-loving and hilarious, and he clearly cares for his Arataki Gang members. He may look threatening, but Itto truly is a sweetheart with unique hobbies. He'd be ecstatic to teach us how to battle with Onikabuto, likely lending us the bigger of the two beetles for a better chance at victory. We love Itto and believe he prevents each day from being dull.

9 - Tartaglia

Tartaglia, otherwise known as Childe, is an excellent example of a likable bad guy. Although he spends his nights plotting with the Fatui Harbingers, he spends his days playing with his younger brother, Teucer. Despite his corrupt affiliations, Tartaglia has a soft spot for family, doing everything he can to protect Teucer from the criminal underworld. What can we say, we love a family man!

8 - Kaeya

Kaeya is hot, and he knows it. However, this self-confidence occasionally comes off as arrogance. While Kaeya may make you feel like the only girl in the world, there are likely eight other women who feel the same way. Due to his over-the-top outfit and silky-smooth voice, you would constantly feel like you are dating out of your league, even if you aren't.

7 - Dainsleif

Since Dainsleif was first teased in old Genshin Impact trailers, fangirls have been holding onto every last bit of copium for his eventual release as a playable unit. He exudes an aura that only the baddest of bad boys can pull off, and his eye patch only adds to his charm. If you're looking to secure a stable future, Dainsleif might not be the best choice if you plan to settle in Teyvat. But if you don't mind dating some from Khaenri'ah, he's all yours.

6 - Alhaitham

Alhaitham is a straight-laced study scribe who lives life rationally and efficiently—quite a world away from a certain architect. But that's exactly what we love about Alhaitham, who would probably prefer to read a book than go on a date. There's something about extremely cold and distant men that makes them ultra-hot, even more so than the Ultra-Hot Burner Lamp Test Model.

5- Kaveh

Kaveh, the Light of Kshahrewar, is a prodigal architect responsible for building the Palace of Alcazarzaray. He's the epitome of a starving artist who spends money he doesn't have in the name of art, hence burying himself in a lifetime of debt. But if you can look past his overly philanthropic personality, you'll see an extremely talented individual and a face that could be on the front cover of Teyvat's rendition of GQ.

4 - Zhongli

Zhongli gives off an intriguing mentor vibe with his centuries of experience and calm demeanor. We'd love to hear of the first contract in Liyue and how he protected the citizens from destruction time and time again. Out of everyone in Genshin Impact, we believe Zhongli would have the best stories to tell. He's the perfect drinking buddy and someone we can enjoy spending retirement with.

3 - Kamisato Ayato

Out of everyone on this list, Kamisato Ayato is the most qualified to become a husband. He's the main lead who came straight out of a K-Drama or an Otome Isekai series: rich, smart, powerful, responsible, and hot. From his perfectly brushed hair that never seems to fall out of place to his most elegant swordplay to the frenzy of things that could be hiding under his armor—is there anything not to love about the head of the Kamisato household? But most of all, his bubble tea addiction means that boba dates are always on the agenda.

2- Wriothesley

If you didn't lose your mind when Neuvillette was revealed, you probably lost your mind when you first laid your eyes upon the rough, wolfish, and extremely hot image of Wriothesley. From his dark hair to his brash personality and his ability to put the entire nation's prisoner population in place, Wriothesley exudes a charm like no other. He doesn't fall behind in the dad department, either. Being one half of Sigewinne's dad duo, he sure knows how to take care of little Melusines.

1 - Neuvillette

All hail the Iudex Neuvillette, the Hydro Sovereign, the babysitter to the Hydro Archon, and a long-haired husbando with a face prettier than yours and mine. I nearly lost my mind when I first saw a picture of Neuvillette, and I'd be surprised if you didn't.

He's the epitome of perfection, from having the most stable job in the Court of Fontaine to being powerful enough to calm the Primordial See, all the while being one of the most kindhearted and reasonable men we've met on our journey. Most of all, Neuvillette is the ultimate dad material—so much so that he's practically a dad to all Melusines.
