Katsura Kotarou is the only character on this list with some similarities to Genshin Impact's Kamisato Ayato. For a long time, the community has imagined Kamisato Ayato to have the appearance of an excellent male swordsman with long hair and a serene prince-like personality.

Katsura Kotarou is Gintama's former comrade from the Joi war. He is extremely good with swords but prefers to use grenades. Katsura is very smart and sensible when faced with predicaments but other times tends to act around like a complete idiot in anime and manga.

Undoubtedly, the work put in by Akira Ishida on Katsura in Gintama will have helped him a lot to adjust his voice to portray Ayato's personality in Genshin Impact.
