Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Talents (Skills)

Below you’ll find Kuki Shinobu’s abilities, at least ones reported by reputable leaker ‘Dim’ to be hers. As these are subject to change throughout beta testing, her final kit could look very different to Dim’s initial list. As always, we’ll be keeping her flavour texts and values updated as development progresses.

Best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Team Combo

Kuki Shinobu’s kit makes her a strong healer and Electro enabler. Although she can’t deal as much damage as Electro hyper carries, she makes up for it with her utilities!

Kuki Shinobu

Kuki will be providing continous Electro application and healing in this team comp. She’ll mostly be a quick swap character rather than an on-field one.

Kamisato Ayato

Ayato as the main DPS will be the one monstly in the field. He’ll be the Hydro applicator for this taser comp.


Fischl along with Kuki will continuously apply Electro damage to enemies. Juggle between her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst to ensure continuous Oz uptime.


Kazuha will be able to spread elements around easily. His Elemental Skill will also group up enemies for easier elemental application.

Best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Builds

Kuki Shinobu’s elemental burst, Gyoei Narukami Hariyama Rite, deals heavy Electro damage in a wide area for a short time.

Her long-lasting skill, Sanctifying Ring, supports her output by regularly dealing Electro damage in pulses every few seconds and healing the party as well.

It’s also useful for creating elemental reactions and dealing supplemental damage while Shinobu is inactive.

Shinobu’s passive talent Heart’s Repose increases the healing of her skill by 75% of her Elemental Mastery and its DPS by 25% of her Elemental Mastery.

That makes it one of the more important stats to focus on for her Artifacts and weapons.

Best Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu Weapons

As a four-star character, Kuki Shinobu doesn’t have a signature weapon designed specifically for her. However, there are a few existing swords that match her skills perfectly.

The Freedom-Sworn is a popular choice in early theorycraft builds thanks to its high attack and even higher Elemental Mastery secondary stat buff for the wielder.

That secondary stat is a superb fit for Kuki Shinobu given her Heart’s Repose talent – but the sword is awfully valuable to use on a mostly inactive four-star character.

Try Iron Sting instead. This sword is one you can forge, and its secondary Elemental Mastery stat is almost as high as the Freedom-Sworn. Its passive skill increases all damage by 6%-12% when the user deals Elemental damage.

Finally is the Sacrificial Sword, which is another natural fit for Kuki Shinobu. Its secondary stat increases Energy Recharge by 13% at the base level, and the passive skill has a high chance of ending the user’s skill cooldown after they deal a critical hit.

Since Kuki Shinobu relies so much on her skill, this is a strong choice despite having no effect on her Elemental Mastery.



A part of the “Millennial Movement” that wanders amidst the winds.
Increases DMG by 10~20%. When the character wielding this weapon triggers Elemental Reactions, they
gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s and can be triggered even if said character is not on the field. When you possess 2 Sigils of Rebellion, all of them will be consumed and all
nearby party members will obtain “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” for 12s. “Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance” increases Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG by 16~32% and increases ATK by 20~40%. Once this effect is triggered, you will not gain Sigils of Rebellion for the 20s. Of the many effects of the “Millennial Movement,” buffs of the same type will not stack.

Iron Sting

Iron Sting

Dealing Elemental damage increases all damage by 6~12% for 6s. Max 2 stacks. Can only occur once every 1s.

Sacrificial Sword​

Sacrificial Sword

After dealing damage to an opponent with an Elemental Skill, the skill has a 40~80% chance to end its own CD. Can only occur once every 30~16s.

Best Artifacts for Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu

Kuki Shinobu has 3 artifacts that you can choose from.

The best set for an all-’rounder style build for Kuki Shinobu with a bit of something for every style is a four-piece Tenacity of the Milleleith set.

A burst-oriented Kuki Shinobu would benefit from a two-piece Noblesse Oblige set (+20% elemental burst damage). Since the burst scales with Kuki Shinobu’s HP, focus on Artifacts that boost the user’s HP.

Tenacity of the Millelith

Tenacity of the Millelith

  • 2-piece effect: HP +20%
  • 4-piece effect: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.
Noblesse Oblige​

Noblesse Oblige

  • 2-piece effect: Elemental Burst DMG +20%
  • 4-piece effect: After using an Elemental Skill, increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 30% for 15s.

FAQs about Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu

Kuki Shinobu (久岐忍) is the deputy of the Arataki Gang. Shinobu appears to be a more rational and responsible counterbalance to Itto’s brazen personality.

She is said to wear a mask. Unconfirmed leaks suggest she is a 4-star character who uses the teen female model (Sucrose, Yanfei).

The two 2.7 new characters are Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, Hydro and Electro respectively, and a 5 and 4 star respectively.

Yelan’s identity has always been a mystery. Like a phantom, she often appears in various guises at the center of events, and disappears before the storm stops.

Kuki Shinobu’s talents, passives, and constellations aren’t confirmed yet.

However, Dimbreath and other leakers have given us a glimpse of what to expect from her abilities. This information is from the sheet of leaked abilities, though it’s subject to change based on official announcements.

Kuki Shinobu is an upcoming character from the Inazuma region. She has an Electro Vision, but it’s unconfirmed what weapon she uses. Kuki Shinobu acts as the deputy of Itto’s gang, the Arataki Gang. Being the deputy, she handles all affairs and deals with whatever trouble Itto gets into.

Kuki Shinobu is the Oni of Hanamizaka deputy, and by following the recently released character, Arataki Itto, a narration coming from the deputy was seen as part of his character introduction.

From the initial speculations, Kuki Shinobu was said to be either a Pyro or Dendro vision holder and could be a claymore wielder.

However, several recent data-mined information claims that Kuki Shinobu might be an Electro vision holder.

A popular Genshin Impact leaker reveals that the upcoming Version 2.7 character Kuki Shinobu will be a new Four-star Electro healer.

Genshin Impact has already announced the three limited banner characters, as well as a new region for the upcoming update.

Kuki Shinobu is part of a gang from Hanamizaka led by Arataki Itto, who is an oni who had his Vision taken due to the Vision Hunt Decree. It’s mentioned by Sayu that Arataki Itto considers Kuki Shinobu as his little sidekick.

Genshin Impact 2.7 leaks have begun revealing details even before the arrival of Version 2.6, and the storyline will continue with the exploration of The Chasm. Yelan – a new 5-star Hydro bow character, and Kuki Shinobu – a new 4-star Electrco sword character, will be the star of the future update.

Genshin Kuki Shinobu is the Arataki Gang’s Deputy Leader, and she is frequently seen with Arataki Itto. She is a sword-wielding/swinging character that uses her Electro abilities in battle to cure her teammates and allies.

What’s interesting about Kuki Shinobu, in particular, is that a whole bunch of leaks show her to be an entirely different character altogether, a young child with what appears to be a catalyst and one of Itto’s Oni horns.
