Best Fontaine Characters in Genshin Impact

Updated on
Furina and Neuvillette from Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact is one of the most popular games released in recent years. It features over 50 playable characters, and recently reached a new region called Fontaine. Now that the story of the newest area has come to a close, we have met many of the area's new characters. This includes the Hydro Archon, the dragon Neuvillette, and several Fatui agents. The guide below takes a look at the best Fontaine characters in Genshin Impact.

5. Wriothesley

Wriothesley is the Cryo Catalyst user that many players have been waiting years for. He offers a powerful combo of ice-fueled attacks on the field. Outside of combat, he is the warden of The Fortress of Meropide. This is where criminals charged by Fontaine’s court are held, as well as several citizens who don’t want to return to the surface. Wriothesely himself is a criminal who was sentenced to serve time at the Fortress. Over time, he rose to the status of warden, where he proceeded over the day-to-day operation of the prison.

Many players are enamored with his sad backstory as he killed his abusive father. Of course, in Fontaine, the reason for your crime doesn’t seem to matter. All criminals are tried the same, regardless of the circumstance of their crime. Despite his homeland forsaking him, though, Wriothesley still did everything in his power to save his people during the flood. He even commissioned the construction of a giant ship to help ensure the safety of Fonatanians, whether he had met them before or not. This is why Wriothesley is one of the best Fontaine characters in Genshin Impact.

4. Freminet

In comparison to Lyney, an on-field powerhouse, and the stylish Lynette, Freminet didn’t stand out at first. Even as a four-star character, he performs just ok. His involvement in the main story was brief, leading many players to overlook him. During an event in 4.2, players actually got to spend time with the four-star. During this time, Freminent helped a grieving mother remember her child and helped to cure a mental illness. Due to his strong narrative towards mental health, many players have come to celebrate him as one of the best characters in the game.

Sadly, like most events, Thelxie's Fantastic Adventures will disappear. This will make it hard for newer players to understand what makes Freminet great. While the videos for the event can be viewed online, it’s likely that his role in the story will makes its way into a video about obscure Genshin facts in the near future. Despite the fleeting nature of the event, Feminent is still one of the best Fontaine characters in Genshin Impact because of it.

3. Arlecchino

Arlecchino is the Fatui Harbinger who showed up after Tartaglia got arrested. Like him, though, she is friendly towards the player and is in charge of the local orphanage. She is also the first character to question Furina’s status as an archon and help to save Poisson. Despite her position, she does nothing to cause trouble in the country, unlike the previous Harbingers. With her focus on still getting the Gnosis it’s safe to say that she is one of the friendliest members of the Fatui. She is also one of the most wanted characters in the game and is expected to release in 2024 after the Lantern Rite Festival.

Players also like to speculate over the motives of this character. Even though she seems caring, it’s doubtful whether running the orphanage is just out of the kindness of her heart. There are many theories about her training the children there to be Fatui spies, as seen with Lyney, Lynette, and Freminet. There are even some hints that Lyney is being positioned to succeed her as a Fatui Harbinger. Despite these dark undertones, Arlecchino is one of the best Fontaine characters in Genshin Impact.

2. Neuvillette

Neuvillette is one of the most recognizable characters in Fontaine. He was one of the main focuses of the regions story and an elemental dragon. He is the judge of the Court of Fonataine and a powerful character. He’s a Hydro Catalyst who has the ability to pummel his opponents using a powerful beam of water. Despite this making his kit a bit boring to play, he is easily one of the most powerful Hydro characters in the game. With him on your team, it’s easy to wipe out rows of enemies without must thought. He is even made to work well along with Furina, who came out in the version after his release.

In the game, players get to learn more about him. Neuvillette is a fair dragon, who values the lives of his citizens. Despite his position in the court building a wall between him and his citizens, he works tirelessly to keep them safe. He is seen saving them twice during the main story of the game. He even goes as far as to give away the Gnosis, in hopes that it will keep more bad fortune from befalling the region. This easily makes Neuvillette one of the best Fontaine Characters in Genshin Impact.

1. Furina

Furina is the Hydro archon, and a character that had a major growth arc during the main story. When players are first forced to meet Furine, she is annoying at best and full of herself. Throughout the story, she repeatedly is of no help to anyone around her, and even gets attacked by Arlecchino. This caused many players to right her off, until the final part of the Archon Quest. Here it was shown that Furina has made one of the biggest sacrifices in the history of Genshin. This endered the fanbase to her, making her one of the most well-loved and tragic characters in Genshin Impact.

Furina as a playable character is also rather amazing. She has the ability to apply Hydro damage or heal your team and can swap between the two. Her two different forms makes her one of the most versatile characters in the game, despite not being all that powerful lorewise. She even outshines Kokomi and Mona who have been team staples for many players over the years. This makes Furine on of the best Fonatain characters in Genshin Impact.
