The best strategy is to first know everything about Thunder Manifestation including its attacks, abilities and the ways to counter them.

Origin of this Boss


Thunder Manifestation was introduced to the players after Genshin Impact version 2.1 rolled out. One can find Thunder Manifestation at Amakumo Peak on Seirai Island in the nation of Inazuma.

Attack Patterns, Abilities & Strategies to Kill Thunder Manifestation

Thunder Manifestation uses a series of attacks which are, surprisingly, very easy to dodge. But, keep in mind that if you ever get hit even by one of its attacks, your character will suffer serious damage. To slay Thunder Manifestation in Genshin Impact, all you have to do is try and avoid all of its attacks and wait for your turn to fight back. Go through the list given below which contains all the attacks and moves that Thunder Manifestation uses:

  1. Wing Slash: A basic attack used by many different characters in different games. Thunder Manifestation will simply swing either of its wings to strike your character. Do not get too close to it or else you will not be able to dodge the attack in time.
  2. Spin Attack: Just as the name sounds, Thunder Manifestation spins rapidly while spreading its wings to attack your character. This attack can be really dangerous for you to even get hit once because it is a move that consists of a series of attacks with no pause in between, which can even break your character’s shield. Before starting to spin rapidly, Thunder Manifestation flies higher than usual and rotates anti-clockwise for a second or two.
  3. Teleportation: Though it is not an attack, Thunder Manifestation can teleport anywhere on the battlefield which can surprise you. It can even be the sheer speed of our boss that has electricity at its core but whatever it is, it is so fast that teleportation is the correct way to put it. Luckily, Thunder Manifestation will not attack you instantly after teleporting in front of you. Thus, you will have enough time to either attack or maintain the distance between you and your opponent.
  4. Small Projectiles: Thunder Manifestation also uses a projectile attack that can be evaded without much efforts. It creates five floating projectiles in a linear pattern to attack you.
  5. Frontal Dash: Thunder Manifestation flies high, gets back close to the ground, floats in a circular motion for a bit and then dashes towards you at a tremendous speed that even shatters the ground.
  6. Lightning Strike: Another attack that includes Thunder Manifestation flying high and striking the ground with heavy lightning multiple times.
  7. Thunder Cage: Thunder Manifestation creates a homing thunder cage that keeps following you in the entire arena and if caught between its walls, you will see your character’s hitpoints being reduced drastically.
  8. Lightning Walls: Thunder Manifestation will create two separate walls of lightning on both of your sides. These walls will now come closer to you in an attempt to deal damage if you stay in between them.


How to Avoid and Counter Thunder Manifestation’s Attacks

Swing Attack

After swinging its wing for an attack, Thunder Manifestation leaves a large opening and opportunity for you to attack. Grab this chance and deal whatever damage you can before it prepares for another attack.

Spin Attack

One of the ‘Must avoid at all cost’ attacks by Thunder Manifestation. When our boss starts rotating anti-clockwise, you get the perfect sign to decide your next move. You can either get away from the boss or just dash behind it to avoid any damage. You will not get any opportunity to attack Thunder Manifestation during this period so do not try your luck here.


This may sound a bit strange, but you can actually prevent Thunder Manifestation from teleporting to different locations frequently. Try dashing behind the boss as soon as it completes any attack, which will also give you many golden opportunities to attack it. Once you start hitting it back-to-back, Thunder Manifestation will have a hard time teleporting from one place to another.

Small Projectiles

You can just dodge those projectiles by sprinting to either of the sides. Another effective way to react to this attack is to get behind the boss once all the five projectiles are produced.

Frontal Dash

A high speed attack which can make you regret your decision if you do not evade it on time. The only thing that tells you the direction of the dash is the purple trail that you will see on the ground before the attack. Quickly dash out of the trail to avoid any damage. This move is a pair of two dashes, one after another, so get ready for the next dash too.

Lightning Strike

This attack can be avoided by simply moving your character out of the area of effect.

Thunder Cage

To avoid the attack, all you have to do is sprint in the opposite direction to the cage and it will disappear after a few seconds. Also, attacking Thunder Manifestation during this attack is not a good idea.

Lightning Walls

To ensure that your character does not get hurt, you can either run towards the long exit of the walls and get out of the trap or you can dash through one of the walls. We recommend you to wait and attack the boss till the walls are too close and then you can swiftly dash through one of the walls. It is a simple way to save your hitpoints while damaging your opponent too.

Best Strategies to Overpower Thunder Manifestation

Pair-up with Another Players

Genshin Impact allows players to team-up and play the game together; why shouldn’t you use this feature for yourself? You can find many players who are willing to help others or want help to defeat this boss. Look for such players and if you work together, you will have a better chance of winning conquering Thunder Manifestation.

Play Smart, Not Hard

Rushing things and trying to win by using many attacks at once is the worst thing one can think of. Defeating this boss requires patience and right judgement. Keep avoiding all the attacks and wait for your turn to shine, as explained earlier.

Use Suitable Characters

Since your opponent and its attacks are completely based on electricity, do not make the mistake of using an electro character. Other elemental characters can prove to be more useful in this fight. The best characters to play with against Thunder Manifestation are those who belong to Pyro and Cryo elements. Additionally, using long ranged characters is the way to go so avoid using melee characters. Using characters that can create shields is a good option too.

Just like every weapon has its own advantage against a certain enemy or on a certain terrain, every character in Genshin Impact has its own benefits when you fight any boss. Since Thunder Manifestation is a flying enemy that will give a handful to melee characters, you must use those characters which excel in long range attacks to have an advantage in the fight. Some of the best characters that can be played with to defeat Thunder Manifestation are:

  • Ganyu, Hu Tao and Ayaka: These characters are the best ones to fight Thunder Manifestation since their elements directly counter that of our enemy. Using these characters will actually have a large impact on this fight.
  • Klee, Yoimiya: Long ranged characters have the upper hand over melee characters as they can attack even when the enemy is far away from them or flying high in the sky. Melee characters do not have this benefit.

Though we do not recommend it, even melee characters can be used in a fight against Thunder Manifestation. But it will take much more time and efforts for you to defeat this boss, who keeps flying and attacking, with a melee character.

So, this sums up everything that you need to know to defeat Thunder Manifestation in Genshin Impact. Try and follow all the tips that we mentioned here and you will definitely beat Thunder Manifestation. After defeating this boss, the rewards will be waiting for you to upgrade the new characters.
