Genshin Impact Characters That Should Be Couples (& Why They Won’t)

by Lidia Lucovic

In Genshin Impact, some character relationships have potential for romance, but the developer, HoYoverse, is unlikely to explore this. Although not explicitly detailed, some characters have shown minor traits and behaviors that suggest a deeper connection. Captain Beidou and Ningguang’s constant bickering and unprecedented alliance have led the community to speculate that they are the most likely couple in the game.

In fact, during the Lantern Rite Festival, Beidou and Ningguang’s interaction atop the Jade Chamber can be interpreted as flirtatious. Additionally, Beidou tells Xiangling that she gets along well with Ningguang and that they play chess together aboard the Alcor. While Beidou and Ningguang’s relationship is the most obvious example, there are other character relationships that could potentially become romantic, such as Alhaitham’s relationship with his roommate.

Chongyun & Xingqiu’s Potential Romance in Genshin Impact

Chongyun and Xingqiu are a popular Genshin Impact couple within the fan community, with their intimate friendship suggesting that they are more than just friends. These two 4-star Liyue characters know everything about each other and take care of each other on a daily basis. They spend a lot of time together and have hinted at being something more than just close friends. For example, in Chongyun’s Hangout event, he mentions that Xingqiu gave him a list of clues and one of them is a dating location for “two close friends”. As they are always seen together, Chongyun and Xingqiu’s relationship in Genshin Impact could develop into a beautiful coming-of-age romance, as they already have a pure affection for one another.

The Enemies-to-Lovers Dynamic of Genshin Impact’s Arataki Itto & Kujou Sara

Arataki Itto and Kujou Sara, who have a relationship based on rivalry and provocation, would be an interesting couple to see in Genshin Impact. Despite their antagonism towards one another, the enemies-to-lovers trope would work extremely well with these characters. Itto and Sara have had altercations in the past, with Itto wanting a rematch after losing to Sara during the Vision Hunt Decree. He sends her gifts and rematch invitations in what can be interpreted as a desperate call for attention. Itto’s childishness could be the end of it, but it seems that he insists on a rematch. Though rivalry and provocation aren’t ideal qualities for a romantic relationship, these could be what make their feelings for each other blossom. Itto respects Kujou Sara, knowing she is a tengu, and seeing how she was an outcast for being a tengu all her life, she could feel at home with him since it is not an issue to him. Additionally, Genshin Impact’s Kujou Sara’s responsible demeanor could positively impact Itto’s overall behavior.

Why Genshin Impact Will Likely Not Feature Playable or Relevant NPC Romance Options

There are several reasons why it is improbable that Genshin Impact will include romantic relationships between playable characters or relevant NPCs. Firstly, such romances could potentially compromise the integrity of the game’s lore, potentially reducing a character to a simplified love interest rather than a fully developed personality. Additionally, Genshin Impact’s community is focused on the idea of the Traveler, the main character, being able to pursue romantic relationships with those they interact with, which creates a sense of player freedom that might be disrupted by the introduction of predetermined relationships between other characters.

Another factor is that Genshin Impact’s developer, HoYoverse, is a Chinese company, and while the country has been making strides in recent years towards LGBT anti-discrimination policies, the topic is still heavily censored by the state. Many of the potential couples in Genshin Impact happen to be LGBT, which makes it challenging for such relationships to be portrayed at this time.

Although there are several characters that could potentially form couples, such as Alhaitham and Kaveh, Cyno and Tighnari, and even Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun and Yae Miko, there are multiple reasons why HoYoverse might avoid introducing character romance options, including censorship issues in China. Despite the allure of such relationships, it is unlikely that Genshin Impact players will see them in the game anytime soon.
