<Sanky> please suggest an unused sprite with a clock or something
This game is still under active development.
Be aware that any unused content you find may become used or removed in the future. Please only add things to the article that are unlikely to ever be used, or went unused for some time. If they do get used, please remove them from the page and specify in the edit summary!

Genshin Impact is an open-world RPG that, depending on who you ask, is either a modern masterpiece that pushes the boundaries of open-world games or a shameless rip-off of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with forced IAPS, gacha mechanics, and more than a few controversies regarding its community.

Either way, those drop rates suck.

To do:
  • Going forward, the version that unused assets are pulled from should be listed in case they are removed from future versions. Some of the assets on this page were directly pulled from Lumie's twitter, with no clear indicator of whether they came from a CBT or public version.
  • There's a lot of revisional differences.
  • Any major regional differences?
  • miHoYo infamously puts unused and upcoming content in the game's asset folders. Find stuff that's most likely not gonna be used anytime soon.
  • Unused voice clips, including possible variants in different languages. (Possibly enough for a sub-page?)

Unused Models


GenshinImpact Kate.png

A model of what appears to be an unused playable character, named "Kate" internally, that's been in the files since CBT1. A version of this model with a red dress also appears in the game files. This model also has a duplicate named "Kevin", perhaps referring to the character of the same name from Honkai Impact 3rd, another game by miHoYo.

This is nothing more than a placeholder model for the Traveler, and will likely never appear in-game, supported by how internally she has the same geo and anemo movesets as them.


To do:
Get renders of the animals without a watermark. These have existed since CBT1.

GenshinImpact animals.png

Models of several animals - a bull, a bunny, and some sort of bird creature - that have yet to appear in-game.

Unused Graphics

Childe Icons

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Find which version(s) these came from. Could possibly be from CBT3, since he had a different icon in CBT2. If so, move this to CBT3's own page.

GenshinImpact childeearly1.png GenshinImpact childeearly2.png

Earlier versions of Childe's character icons.

Early Map

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Find which version this came from. If it came from a CBT, it needs to be moved to its respective page.

An earlier and unfinished version of the map of Tevyat.

Unused Wish Art

GenshinImpact LisaPullEarly.png GenshinImpact KaeyaPullEarly.png

Early wish art for Lisa and Kaeya. While the final versions use spruced-up models like all the other wish art, these use 2D art.

Gacha artwork exists for Aether, Lumine and Aloy, despite not being possible to obtain from wishes.

Aether and Lumine's were found in v1.0, and were removed by v1.2.

No Character Icon

GenshinImpact-UI AvatarIcon Side None.png

A side view of a head with a question mark in the middle, this can actually be seen in game if the game fails to load the side icon of the player's selected characters.

Old Item Icons

Old Element Icons

Genshin has some old icons of the 7 elements that are never used, these are still in the files as of the 2.6 update.

Genshin old pyro.png Pyro was originally a simple icon of a flame.

Genshon oldhydro.png Hydro was originally a water drop.

Genshin olddendro.png Dendro was originally a 3 leaf clover.

GenshinImpact UI ItemIcon 904.png Electro was originally a simple bolt icon.

Genshin oldanemo.png Anemo was originally a dandelion.

Genshin oldcryo.png Cryo looks similar to its final icon.

Genshin oldgeo.png Geo was originally a pile of dust/dirt.

Unused Code

Kate Abilities

Code exists for the unused character Kate's abilities, though all that remains are names and references to them.

  • Flickerwave
  • Thunderfall
  • Peirce Lightning

Additionally, Kate is referred to as an Electro/Sword character internally.

Unused Shop Items

Extra Original Resin Pass

GenshinImpact UI Mall BannerBig2.png GenshinImpact UI Mall Purchase Resin Monthly.png

An unused monthly pass, this is similar to the Blessing Of The Welkin Moon but instead of giving you 90 primogems once a day for 30 days, this item would give you 60 original resin every day for 30 days, totalling at 1800 extra original resin. no price exists in the files but its speculated to be the same price as the Blessing Of The Welkin Moon or cheaper.

Unobtainable Artifact Sub-Stats

from all the pool of sub-stats an artifact can roll, several sub-stats go unused, these are:

  • shield strenght
  • healing bonus
  • incoming healing bonus
  • CD reduction (cooldown reduction)
  • movement speed
  • all elemental damage bonuses (for the 7 elements + phisical)
  • all elemental resistance (for the 7 elements + phisical)
  • DMG bonus
  • DMG reduction

Unused Audio


This page or section needs more audio.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough audio. Please fix this.
Specifically: There's probably a lot more. There are other files that also have the "~Tempo" suffix. Will start a table when more are added.

Ode to Azhdaha

A rough draft of the first phase of Azhdaha's boss battle music, played exclusively on piano. This file can be found in GenshinImpact_Data\StreamingAssets\Audio\GeneratedSoundBanks\Windows\Music_1.5_4.pck under the name Music_1.5_4_30~Tempo_ 120.0.

하하하하하하. 그래, 그녀는 다크 히어로를 그렇게 평가하는구나. 적어도 몬드에서 어둠이 완전히 사라지기 전까지, 그녀의 비판을 부정할 수 없어 Really...? So that's how she feels about the Darknight Hero... *sigh* She's not wrong. At least, not until the darkness has been wiped out of Mondstadt. フン。そうか?彼女はそんな風に闇夜の英雄を評価しているのか?少なくともモンドの闇が消え失せるその時まで、彼女の意見は正鵠を射たものとなるだろう。 Would've been Diluc's dialog for the About Rosaria topic.
