There are several interesting things to note about this list. For starters, the top ten are comprised of only male characters. In fact, the first woman to appear on the list is Yae Miko, who is only ranked #15. Yae Miko also had the greatest increase this year compared to last year, having moved up 25 spots.

On the opposite side of the spectrum is poor Yoimiya, who dropped a staggering 31 spots. It is worth mentioning that Yoimiya still ranked higher than characters who were not on the list, such as Razor, Ayaka, and Sucrose.

Albedo actually moved up six spots this year to become the most popular member of the cast overall on Tumblr, knocking down the previous king, Zhongli.

New Genshin Impact characters who made it to this year's rankings on Tumblr include:

  • Tighnari (ranked 13)
  • Kamisato Ayato (ranked 14)
  • Pantalone (ranked 20)
  • Cyno (ranked 21)
  • Shenhe (ranked 22)
  • II Dottore (ranked 25)
  • Shikanoin Heizou (ranked 26)
  • Arlecchino (ranked 27)
  • Pierro (ranked 34)
  • Yelan (ranked 36)
  • II Capitano ranked 38)
  • Columbina (ranked 47)
  • Sandrone (ranked 48)
  • Alhaitham (ranked 49)

Keep in mind that several of these options are not playable, most notably the Fatui Harbingers. These Genshin Impact characters were incredibly popular when they first appeared in Teyvat Chapter Interlude Teaser: A Winter Night's Lazzo, seemingly out of nowhere. It is not known when they will become playable.

Keep in mind that the rankings shown here are solely for Tumblr. Other websites like Twitter, Reddit, and other social media would likely have different results regarding who is most popular and other related topics.

Still, some Travelers might appreciate seeing this type of data, especially if they love Albedo. It will be interesting to see how he and the rest of the cast will fare in 2023's Year in Review.
