Genshin Impact memes – who Tao, what Tao, when Tao

by Ana Lopez

Naturally, with Genshin growing to such tremendous heights since its release in 2020, it’s cultivated a devoted fan base. And what does a large fan base mean on the internet? Why, memes of course. Heaps of delicious, awful Genshin Impact memes. From Reddit to YouTube, there’s no shortage of ridiculous Genshin-themed content where you can share your pain, frustrations, and genuine love for this open-world RPG phenomenon.

But of course there are countless photos and videos in the Genshin meme abyss, some not so great, while others could even bring a smile to the Unknown God. So I’ve gone down the Genshin Impact meme rabbit hole for you and dug up some of my favorites. What an MVP. (I mean, it’s not like I spend an unreasonable amount of time surfing the Genshin Impact meme Reddit and youtube channels or something…)

If you’re looking for more Genshin Impact content, especially that of the more serious kind, check out our Genshin Impact tier list or Genshin Impact next banner guide. We’ve also got a list of the latest Genshin Impact codes for some fun freemos – then head over to Reddit and join the crowd as we rant about another 3-star arc pull.

Genshin Impact Reddit memes

Ah, Reddit, the home of the meme and the one-stop shop for all your Genshin posting needs.


r/Genshin_Memepact is hands down one of the largest Genshin Impact meme Reddit communities, with over 234,000 members and counting. Overflowing with some of the dumbest, wackiest, yet most relatable content created by Genshin players anywhere, it’s hard not to spend hours scrolling through this mess of memes. Here are some of my favorite recent posts.

Leak from Genshin_Memepact

New Yae Miko leko

Genshin Impact’s Yae Miko is a foxxy lady whether she’s flashing one or nine tails.

You know the rules from Genshin_Memepact

The Ushi is awake, he has heard his master’s call

As a Genshin Impact Itto main, I probably spend more time yeeing Ushi than anything else these days. So I’m forever waiting for the volcanoes of Natlan so I can grow those sweet piles of my bovine BFF.

Abyss Magician from Genshin_Memepact

Abysmal Abyss mages

These guys are the bane of my existence, and probably yours too. Especially when they stick a cryo and hydro one together – ugh. It’s a wonder I didn’t wear out my thumbs trying to shake off that frostbite. I sometimes even hear their mocking laughter in my sleep.

Osial returns as: from Genshin_Memepact

I mean she has a point…

As much as we love Genshin Impact’s Childe, whenever Osial raises his ominous, watery heads, it’s hard not to take a stern look at the 11th Fatui Harbinger.

F2p activities (mihoyo pls raise the primogem drops from the chests) from Genshin_Memepact

Don’t spend them all at once

Whether you’re F2P or not, it’s painful to get as many as two whole primogems after spending fifteen minutes working out a puzzle and killing a bunch of ruin guards for an exquisite chest (this video from r/genshinmemes illustrates my point perfectly), especially if you’re saving up for that replay you’ve been waiting for.

God roll from Genshin_Memepact

Artistic artifacts

Artifact farming is a nightmare, and we all know it. Even if you get the full set of five-star artifacts with the decent primary stats recommended for your main, there’s no guarantee the sub-stats won’t be completely useless. Never talk to me and my +Pyro Damage Husk of Opulent Dreams again.

Also started talking about killing everyone right after from Genshin_Memepact

Where do they keep them all?

The same goes for Genshin Impact’s Qiqi and her Violetgrass. I can’t imagine eating more than 45 flowers in one sitting will do wonders for your digestive system.

Arataki Ditto from AlbedosCreations

Totally uncursed edits from r/AlbedosCreations

r/AlbedosCreations is an iconic Genshin Impact meme Reddit, full of wicked and often creepy monstrosities. Inspired by Albedo’s experiments, it showcases five-star hybrid characters, disturbing puns illustrated with bad image manipulation, and more. One of my personal favorites is Arataki Ditto, as seen above – a combination of Itto from Genshin Impact and Ditto from Pokémon, but there’s plenty more to sift through at your leisure.

Genshin Impact YouTube Memes

There’s no shortage of Genshin Impact memes on YouTube, with heaps of .exe videos, dances, glitch compilations, and more. Here are a few of my personal favorites – be warned, they contain adult language and lots of silly jokes.

911 what is your emergency? I’m drowning next to the shore

I can’t deny that I spent all night watching Youtuber Sophist‘s videos when I first found them, and his Sophisticated Genshin series now lives rent-free in my head. Keep in mind that while this one is safe, there are some heavy spoilers in the Inazuma and Raiden Shogun videos (you might want to turn your speakers down a bit too).

Who Tao?

Dex beef has only made a few videos, but they are so masterfully crafted, and full of one-liners that we quote among ourselves daily. With so few videos, we can only hope that the king of crazy Genshin animated memes returns when the world needs him most.

They’re really trying to wish on my banner?

This one is for the Jojo fans (me included) and those of you who missed out on a five star you really wanted (me and YouTuber included S0m30n3 evidently). We’ve all been there, wishing on a banner and feeling like the Archons are against us. May all those drowning in F2P tears have a more restful sleep than Osial.

The one and oni

Memes are so stupid. But I think that’s why we love them. In a totally different way, here’s a video of Genshin Impact’s Itto being herself for four minutes, courtesy of Rawfler.

Happiness +69420%

The ‘Specialist’ or ‘Lucky Dance’ (featuring music from Persona) has pretty much become a Genshin Impact meme ritual by now, with versions coming out for all five-star characters (and even some four-star ones), but it still tickles me every time one pops up. So, to wrap up our extremely helpful guide, take a Genshin Impact’s Zhongli lucky dance Yamirinto bring you luck in its inevitable imminent recurrence.

And that’s it for our Genshin Impact memes. If you’re looking for more RPG fun, be sure to check out our list of the best mobile RPGs to find something new to play
