dude's dressed like a fucking jojo villain, what the hell
I laughed way too hard on this one.
Wtf are you wearing man?
Backup dancer at one of Xinyan's concerts, change my mind. There's no other rationale for... this
For the record this isn't Itto or Ayato 100%
Ayato? He's Ayaka's brother so logically he'd have silver hair and we see his outfit in the Kamisato manner. This obviously isn't that
Itto? If you look at the bulletin boards it says he's a crimson haired oni sumo wrestler. This man is neither crimson haired or an oni. So if he's an Inazuma boy (the vision doesn't match the design of Inazuma's visions so it's probably not) then Heizou is the only option left
wait where's ayato's outfit?
“Goth Baizhu is not real, he can’t hurt you”
Isn't this style more punk than goth?
Upon seeing this, my brain keeps fluctuating between "this is super hot" and "holy shit, this is *beyond* ugly."
That's the most relatable comment on this post
this seems to be the source
When I look at his face he looks super hot
but then I look at his cloths and want to rip my eyes out.
Seriously, that chest piece could kill a man. His vision also looks weird. It doesn’t match any of the ones we’ve seen either, it doesn’t even look like Childe’s meaning he can’t be a harbinger.
Childe’s vision is from snezhnaya so that’s why it’s shaped differently. We can assume this character is not from there as his design doesn’t seem to match childe’s at all, so he’s likely from another nation, so he could still be a harbinger too, if he’s even real that is. Personally I doubt they’d have started developing for other regions already, but who knows
Jokes on y’all when he turns out to be Varka. 😂
Varka deserve a beard .
He has the same beauty mark as Ayaka…. Please dont tell me this is Ayato
literally just made the same comment 😭 i hope the person who posted this is a mihoyo employee trying to get feedback i dont want this to be ayato
This photo was uploaded a few hours ago too but was deleted for some reason. Personally I feel like it's fake but who knows
uploaded where ?
What is this abomination and why does it look so menacing
*It's just T-posing at us, menacingly...*
Definitely real. He has a braid/ponytail.
Oh my god, I didn't even notice 😫
Yep, now I'm convinced
wait this is actually so ugly...
Ayato is looking great ***/S***
The design looks too busy for Genshin but who knows
Kaeya says hi
Um… Uh…. I dunno guys…
There're so many things going on it feels really cluttered. I leaned towards fake or someone's OC, but if it's real, it gives off a Fatui vibe like one of the Harbingers.
Hard pass if it's real. Life Jacket of Doom is NOT a good look.
GOTH CHAD GOTH CHAD GOTH CHAD
A Harbinger perhaps? Design looks like a mix of Signora and Scaramouche.
This looks like someones edgy oc lmao
The face is decent
The hair is ok
The pants can work
The torso spiky poncho thing has to go , seriously It makes everything else look bad
What is this 👀
The 80ies called. They want their over-the-top rockstar model back.
Maybe it is the lead singer of Xinyans band :'D
Featuring hit songs like:
* Mondstadt is for Lovers
* Welcome to the Black Lantern Rite
* The Hilichurl and The Worm
* Dear Rosaria, Count Me In
* Burst, Burst, Burst
* But It's Better if you Fish Blast
* and more...
I will not apologize.
don’t know why but I find it kind terrifying…
this guy looks like a fauti
His Vision is weird. He may be from Natlan because his clothes are pretty warlike.
The clothes are too detailed which makes me think this is real. Also, the gloves, the tied-up hair, and the cape with gradient are elaborate.
Hmmm.. he doesn’t have horns tho
Tf is this
At first I was like, eh, but on closer inspection he seems very tired and goth, so, I do think he’s cool
Probably fake, but I will do anything for a male character at this rate.
Exactly my thoughts, i started playing genshin because of male characters and it's just..sad at this point
The design looks rather cluttered and messy. Which makes it feel distinctly different from the usual Genshin designs. None of the other characters are overly crowded with detail like this.
To be completely honest, this kind of looks like an edgy OC.
I'm leaning towards fake but Genshin has surprised us before. If it is authentic, then probably not a character from Inazuma despite the electro vision.
We've had the early Raiden leak that was brushed off as a fake OC. Could or could not be a similar case
Looks like they just mashed together Rosaria, Kaeya, Abysal Lector on a treasure hoarder.
Doesn't look Inazuman(see vision)? Maybe <insert future region> character or just a fan-made?
He (if he actually exists) gives me Sumerian vibes to be honest
Looks like a guy who is either tired or mean, maybe some sort of rogue, thief, pirate or harbinger, but tbh I like the vibe
But I really hope it isn't Ayato lmao
Not sure if I'm coping too much but I think a white-haired calm and wise retired samurai big bro who takes up arms again would be amazing and we need a white-haired samurai or knight guy >:( for husbando material
bruh he has a mole in the same place as ayaka 💀 please don't tell me this is ayato please
Is just a
Honestly, after the countless downvotes of a baal leak model..... which in the end turned out to be true.... I reached the conclusion that any character model is indeed correct.
What is he wearing LOL
Plot twist: this is Ayato Kamisato 😆
The only thing holding me back from agreeing with you is that he’s a business man…….. no business man would ever wear this….. right? Right???
~~please give us the white haired ikemen we’ve all been waiting for 😭~~
Its crearly a harbringer, Signature dark red color (found in Signora's cape, Tartaglias's scarf and Scaramounche's hat) + fatui simbols in the cape + vision doesn't seem familiar, i'd say hes from sumeru and probably got recruited after getting his vision
Edit 1: im not surprised if hes from Sumeru if you compare his clothes to Cyno
Edit 2: we still have a lot of time until we know something about him so don't grow too attached to this design, it could easily have a big change in design ( ex: full White rosaria, Mimi instead of Kokomi.. etc)
I'm kind of onboard with him potentially being a villain, but if it's real still hoping he gets the Mimi to Kokomi total rework treatment.
The unnecessary addition of coattails make me think this is real and honestly his design doesn’t really look that odd given the characters we have now
...I though his design was horrid at first but now I kinda like it
this is genuinely so ugly but hes so hot oh my god
My first thought was Arataki Ittou. But now that I look closely, he screams harbinger to me... And that doesn't look like a normal vision shell, but it could be one from another region.
What if its Scaramouche… aged and seen some things…
Don't even joke like this 😭
That would be one serious downgrade
I don’t think it is, but if this is Ayato, I will be zooming the fuck out of r/Ayato_Mains faster than you can say “what the everloving fuck is that monstrosity draped over his chest.”
I'm not even ashamed to say that I'll do the same 😭
the current inazuma 3 (sayu, yoimiya, ayaka) reference a kind yakuza/gangster named Arataki Itto. If this screenshot is real, I bet it’s him
this looks like an edgy rockstar wannabe in LA
his vision doesnt look like any other in game, i'd say he's from sumeru or natlan but his pants are so... mondstadt-looking, overall he looks like a viking mess.
There is a lot going on on top so I would guess fake, but maybe it would look better in motion
in any case of this being real is a early concept, we all know how things can change a lot, remenber how ugly Mimi was and how she look rn after the rework, so...
After Baal's leak, I won't doubt any model character leaks anymore.
This looks so ridiculous its almost cool in a way? I dont know how to explain it
If they just removed the chest thing he’d look fine
You could easily spot this guy on any gay pride parade in your city.
Sorry if this sounds harsh, but if this is not fake this looks super cluttered and frankly unappealing; really not a fan of the shape of whatever the front of his outfit is supposed to be. Going from cool and slick designs like Zhongli, Childe, Kazuha to this is a *major* downgrade. Kaeya's design is way more cohesive and toned down than this.
As a husbando fan this game is getting more depressing daily.
it has the Mihoyo Signature Rat Tail™️ like every other man in the game 😭 im scared it's real
Barbatos, I beg of thee, make this piece of cake become true, bless us with man content.
Man doesn't even have a proper shirt
Just a shell of clinking chains and ornaments he poked his head through, I doubt it's Ittou
Following that link to the [twitter it came from](https://twitter.com/WenLumi), the non-shaded 3D model shows the 'vision' holding design more clearly. Pretty sure this is fanmade, the design elements on the shoulders don't resemble anything similar (not even the samurai mobs) and that dangling gold diamond piece on the back is way too big compared to flowing capes/tassels of existing characters. There's not a lot of rhyme or reason to the design, especially with the big metal shaped oval ornaments dangling from the front chain.
If I'm wrong and it is real I'll c6 the guy
he's kinda hot tho
The clothing seems a bit to extravagant. Seems like there’s be a lot of issues with it
If he’s real I’m about to become a whale.
His vision doesn’t look like a monstadt,liyue,snechznaya or inazuma vision…I’m just going to lean towards it being fake but mihoyo is unpredictable I guess
It does look like something MihoYo would do but flashier...
Guys even more elaborate than Baal. So it’s possible but probably not final model.
If he’s real, then he definitely has to be a Harbinger
The lost yaksha?
He’s got really thin legs
Looks like a singer from a Glam Metal band
Probably from Fontaine
That's one hell of a poncho...
looks like a necromancer
I feel like his outfit has too much going on
He looks like a treasure hoarder that dressed like a jojo villain lol.
Assuming this guy is real, my bets are on that he’s a harbinger who hasn’t been named yet. His color are black and red which remind me a lot of Arlecchino, so my guess is that he’s him.
If they take out this top armor part, he will be a must pull
Ah yes, the title of Most Confused Outfit has now been revoked from Kaeya.
Shape of the Vision suggest he is not from Mondstat, Liyue, Snyeznya or Inazuma.Clothes are also very outlandish and doesn't from the previous regions either. My guess this an early render concept of a character from Sumeru.
Imagine if this was Ayato. Vampire Ayato. Vampato.
This looks like if Osial swallowed Scaramouche and spat him out. I can't decide if I hate or love this
Electro Yaksha?? 👀👀
But that guy was big, muscly and have 2 extra arms.
I know people say this look busy but I fucking LOVE how he looks. His hair has this kind of rockstar vibe, his entire outfit being kinda gothy and the TATTOOS... Ugh.
Please make him a legit future character, I swear to god I'll already start saving. Is his Vision Inazuman? I can't quite tell from the picture.
He looks so much like a chartoon villian....
Like the Type that gets fucked pretty quickly in the story
I smell the fakeness from this
He looks like he's a about to tell you the definition of insanity
He looks like he could be the Rosaria of Sumeru
I hope he’s not a fake leak
I don’t think it’s fake. It’s to detailed and well done!
Wanna say this is fake but idk much about how genshin leaks usually surface. My reasoning: This looks like a genderbended version of Baal. Like toooo much like her. They even have the same beauty mark under their eye. That would make the 3rd character with that beauty mark from Inazuma and I don’t think from a design standpoint that Mihoyo would commit overkill like that.
If this is a real character the only thing I could think is this is the serpent that Baal slayed to create the island (sorry, I can’t remember the name or the exact lore at the moment) in it’s human form… Aaaaand maybe it’ll turn out that this person is like related to Baal so that’s why they look alike. Just a theory though, I still this is might be fake.
Ok, there's something about this design that irritated me.
yo he kinda look like baal. Hes got the same eyes and he has the same mole but on the left side.
Maybe the character Sayu described as scary looking in one of her voice lines. Don't remember who it was tho.
Edit: it was Yoimiya who described the character as scary looking and it was about Itto.
> Oh, he may look scary, but he is very popular with the children. However, he can be very competitive. Every time we play with the children, it always turns into a showdown between him and me. For example, we'd drink a bowl of ramen soup in one go, or try to eat sour plums without making any faces. The children will cheer us both on and try to guess the winner. And when that happens... well, then I can't let him beat me, right?
This is a *hideous* design
Is this character… a vampire? The model sure is interesting
That cross on also. Male Rosaria.
I'm leaning fake because most people don't take into account the amounts of acrobatics GI characters need to do in their outfit. That's why Raiden ends up with the weird crotch flap instead of a continuous kimono piece. Now look at this guy and tell me how tf he is supposed to climb in that shoulder pads (that will not result in horrible clipping/warping). I'll say whoever did this attempted to copy GI but style forgot about how it would function in other animations except for A-posing.
The comments on this thread😭 we so desperate for a decent husbando the tsaritsa shd grant us all Delusions
Guys, i know that there are a lot of great artists around that do fakes. But this is a hella of a really good 3D model (i Wish i could modelling like this) and the shader for the texturing is 100% the genshin one, so stop the “it’s a little top busy for me”, because we actually didn’t see all the inazuma style and there are a lot of other regions that we dont know how they dress
Design looks too try hard
holy shit hahahha
good lord I hope this is fake because their latest male designs have been subpar. Ever since Thoma and Gorou's designs were leaked, I've already been looking ahead to the next male character releases... please don't let this be it
why is it so freaking ugly...
this is raiden situation all over again.
but ill say it first. i actually LIKE his design! if he's gonna come out tomorrow i'll pull for him simply because his design is weird and way too over the top. his outfit is like a pirate ship personified or something. i know they could make this work.
Down if it’s a real character, maybe a harbinger or something
idk why everyone in this reddit seems to hate this design, i’m in absolute awe. all i hope is this isn’t kamisato ayato considering he has the same mole as ayaka and i expected ayato to look EXTREMELY different to this. either way, i’m pulling for whoever this is in a heartbeat☺️
Eww I hate it. I hope it’s fake. Tall guys are already so few and far between but I’m won’t pull for this, it’s an clusterfuck. Looks like an emo went back in time to 80’s hair metal
Looks god damn awful which i guess confirms it's real
