Genshin Impact has 7 Archons and the players want to know which is the strongest. Many players suspect that it is Tsaritsa the Cryo Archon and some believe that Morax might be the strongest due to his age and experience. But the answer isn’t so direct. So in this guide let us check the ranking of all archons in Genshin Impact from strongest to weakest.
Genshin Impact All 7 Archons Ranked from Strongest to Weakest
Before I get into the exact details of why each of them is the strongest I have considered two main factors that make these Archons the strongest. Their control over their region and their battle prowess.
Tsaritsa is the Cryo Archon who presides over Snezhnaya. One of the biggest reasons for her being number 1 on this list is her control over Snezhnaya. And while other Archons may be loved by their followers. Tsaritsa rules her followers by fear. She has been shown collecting the Gnoses of the other Archons. Even though her true motives aren’t exactly known, it is most likely to overthrow the Divine and burn the old world away.
What makes her the strongest archon is her absolute control of Snezhnaya and the Fatui. Fatui here plays an important role as they not only interfere in the matters of the other nations but also try to intimidate them. But what makes her truly fearsome is her ability to grant her followers the power of Delusions. This is a separate type of power and different from Visions. Even the infamous Eleven Fatui Harbingers are rumored to possess the powers of Delusions.
2. Baal/Beelzebul – Strongest Archon in Genshin Impact
Beelzebul is the God of Eternity and the current Electro Archon. She is the most confusing archon on this list. Raiden Ei presides over Inazuma, her older twin sister Makoto died 500 years ago in the cataclysm. Makoto was originally the Archon Baal but since her death, Ei has continued to rule under the name Baal. She lets her puppet The Shogun rule over the matters of the Inazuman affairs.
Ei is probably the strongest archon known so far when considering her prime. She managed to defeat Orobashi The “Great Serpent” alone. Not only that but she also defeated the Signora in a single blow. The only one as strong as her or maybe stronger than her is Morax or Rex Lapis.
Morax is the oldest known Archon in the game that is supposedly 6000+ years old. He also goes by the name Rex Lapis in Liyue and is the Geo Archon. His current vessel is Zhongli which presides over Liyue. He is also known as the god of contracts. Not only is he well loved but also had good control over Liyue making him quite powerful. The only reason he started getting weak is because of Erosion, which is also the reason for his stepping down.
Murata is an Archon whom we don’t know much about. But the confirmed information says that she is the Pyro Archon that presides over Natlan. Some of her other titles include God of War and Lady of Fire. And while God of War is a big title, just how much battle prowess she truly has is yet to be known.
But while we do not know much about her combat experience, what we do know is about her followers. As per Venti warriors from every tribe would perform combat and celebrate their victories for her.
Fontaine is the second Archon that is still very much in the mystery. She is the Hydro Archon whose ideal is Justice. While we do not know much about her region or her control over it. We know that she lives in the courtroom and even seeks to judge the other gods. But there is an exception for the Divine. This can be learned from Dainsleif who we first come across in Chapter I Act IV: We Will Be Reunited. So considering she is a judge it is safe to say she must have good control over her region. She might also have the potential to be stronger than Murata.
Kusanali is also known as the Lesser Lord Kusanali. She is the Dendro Archon that presides over Sumeru. Kusanali took over the position of the Greater Lord Rukkhadevata. She is known as the God of Wisdom. Her vessel form is Nahida. She is perhaps the youngest Archon that has ruled for only 500 years, unlike Morax or Barbatos who has had more than 2000+ years of rule.
7. Barbatos – Weakest Archon in Genshin Impact
Finally, we have Barbatos on this list as the weakest Archon. The reason he is the weakest is mainly because of the ideal he stands for that is freedom. He is the Anemo Archon that presides over Mondstadt. Aside from Morax he is the only other original member of the Seven that is still alive. He currently is and always have been wandering the world in his mortal disguise as a local bard named Venti.
As mentioned previously the only reason he is weak is that he refuses to control Mondstadt. While he may be the weakest he shouldn’t be underestimated as he is the second oldest Archon in the game and is 2600+ years old. So while he might not have the most power in terms of battle prowess. He arguably is one of the few who has seen Tevyat change over the ages.
That covers this list of the strongest Archon in Genshin Impact. If you would like to learn more about the lore and characters of Genshin Impact then you should also check our guide on if Paimon is evil.
