Cyno is a new playable character in Genshin Impact 3.1 with two terrific voice actors behind him. His English tones are provided by Alejandro Saab, while Miyu Irino voices him in the Japanese dub. For those curious, Lee Woo-ri is his Korean VA, whereas Li Qingyang is his Chinese one.

This article will primarily focus on the English and Japanese VAs and some of their past works that readers might know. Both have voiced over a hundred roles within the anime and video game industry, some of which include the same character multiple times.

Before diving into the two impressive VAs' careers, it's worth mentioning that Cyno will be playable in the first half of Genshin Impact 3.1. Both he and Venti will be the 5-star characters for that wave of Event Wishes, with the only known 4-star to accompany them being Candace.

Cyno is a 5-star Electro Polearm user with an innovative Elemental Burst that noticeably changes how his Normal Attacks look. He has a memorable yet familiar voice, so it's worth looking at his VAs' roles throughout the years, starting with the English one.
