Release Date

Sayu will be released on August 10th, 2021 with the Tapestry of Golden Flames Event Banner.


A pint-sized, agile ninja associated with the Shiyuumatsu-Ban.

Height has never been one of Sayu’s strengths… She stopped growing a long time ago, long enough that she feels like she is trapped in a dream where time has stopped. Why aren’t I growing taller? Am I not getting enough sleep?

And just like that, the pint-sized ninja who awoke to this thought drifted off to sleep again. Sayu firmly believes that sleep can replenish all her energy and help her grow taller. In order to live by this principle and have as much time to nap as possible, she honed her ninjutsu to perfection. Fleeing, hiding, transforming… Sayu is the master of all ninjutsu techniques. An unsuspecting leaf or a bucket? It might be just one of Sayu’s many disguises!

As a result, if the Shiyuumatsu-Ban needs Sayu’s help, they need to commit all efforts to finding her first. Of course, from Sayu’s point of view, this so-called “laziness” is just better time allocation which allows her to focus on things… like sleeping and growing taller.

Skills Talents

Talents Icon Name Notes
Normal Attack Shuumatsuban_Ninja_Blade_Sayu_Character_Genshin_Impact.png Shuumatsuban Ninja Blade Normal Attack: Performs up to 4 consecutive strikes. Charged Attack: Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous spinning attacks against all nearby opponents. Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
Elemental Skill Yoohoo_Art_Fuuin_Dash_Sayu_Character_Genshin_Impact.png Yoohoo Art: Fuuin Dash The special technique of the Yoohoo Ninja Arts! Sayu curls up into a rolling Fuufuu Windwheel and smashes into opponents at high speed, dealing Anemo DMG. When the duration ends, she unleashes a Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick, dealing AoE Anemo DMG. Press: Enters the Fuufuu Windwheel state, rolling forward a short distance before using the Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick. Hold: Rolls about continuously in the Fuufuu Windwheel state, increasing Sayu’s resistance to interruption while within that state. During this time, Sayu can control the direction of her roll, and can use the skill again to end her Windwheel state early and unleash a stronger version of the Fuufuu Whirlwind Kick. The Hold version of this skill can trigger Elemental Absorption. This skill has a maximum duration of 10s and enters CD once its effects end. The longer Sayu remains in her Windwheel state, the longer the CD. Elemental Absorption: If Sayu comes into contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo and Electro while in her Windwheel state, she will deal additional elemental DMG of that type. Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use of this skill.
Elemental Burst Yoohoo_Art_Mujina_Flurry_Sayu_Character_Genshin_Impact.png Yoohoo Art: Mujina Flurry The other super special technique of the Yoohoo Ninja Arts! It summons a pair of helping hands for Sayu. Deals Anemo DMG to nearby opponents and heals all nearby party members. The amount of HP restored is based on Sayu’s ATK. This skill then summons a Muji-Muji Daruma. Muji-Muji Daruma: At specific intervals, the Daruma will take one of several actions based on the situation around it: If the HP of nearby characters is above 70%, it will attack a nearby opponent, dealing Anemo DMG. If there are active characters with 70% or less HP nearby, it will heal the active character with the lowest percentage HP left. If there are no opponents nearby, it will heal active characters nearby even if they have 70% HP or more.
