Looking for a list of Honkai Impact characters? With many Valkyries to choose from and a variety of battlesuits for each one, it's tough to know who's best to build a team with, especially as battlesuits also enhance different abilities and perks. This makes it extremely difficult to establish a Honkai Impact tier list.

But there's a reason Honkai Impact characters are so well-loved. Everything that people enjoy about Genshin's characters, animations, voice acting, and backstory all originally started with Honkai Impact. When characters are so well fleshed out, as with Genshin, it becomes more about who you want to play as well as who's 'best'. Without further ado, here's our Honkai Impact characters list, so you can build your team to take on the apocalypse.

That's our list of Honkai Impact characters! If you're on the lookout for more, be sure to have a browse of our AFK Arena tier list, Arknights tier list, Mobile Legends tier list, and Azur Lane tier list. Give 'em a read!

Vill V in Honkai Impact

Vill-V was released in version 5.9 on August. She uses cannon weaponry, coupled with fire skills, and is a force to be reckoned with. She works in mysterious ways thanks to her MANTIS surgery essentially splitting her personality, allowing her to delegate each side to different things.

Another Flame Chaser is Aponia. She was the most powerful pshycic MANTIS, and uses that to her advantage both on and off the battlefield.

Griseo

One of the Flame Chasers of old is Griseo, soft spoken and artistic. She currently resides in the Elysian Realm and is a bit of a mystery, but that doesn't stop her being a brave fighter.

Also called K423, this young girl is a clone of the original Kiana Kaslana, and the first character you play as in Honkai Impact.

This Schicksal Valkyrie from Squad three is the daughter of Lewis, a former Valkyrie and veteran of the second eruption. Though she is a little self-conscious about her looks sometimes, she is cheerful and energetic.

Honkai Impact's first DPS bow-user was a member of a powerful squad of super soldiers from the previous era known as the Flame-Chasers. We first met her in-game as Raiden Mei's guide to the Elysian Realm.

Yae Sakura

This ex-Shrine maiden of Yae village was devoted and hardworking until her sister sacrificed herself to appease the Honkai beasts. It didn't work, and now Sakura hates her home. She also bears the same name and a resemblance to Yae Miko from Genshin Impact, who is also a shrine maiden.

Theresa Apocalypse

As the headmistress of St. Freya academy, Theresa Apocalypse doles out punishment by beating enemies with her giant cross. She also refers to herself as the "world's cutest Valkyrie."

Seele Vollerei

A tragic incident in Seele's past left her orphaned, but at Cocolia's orphanage, she became friends with Bronya. She disappeared as part of a failed experiment and was believed dead, but she reappeared later, wielding her deadly scythe.

Rozaliya Olenyeva

Growing up in the orphanage alongside Seele and Bronya, Rozaliya's wish was to grow strong so she could protect her sister, Liliya. This opportunity came in the form of Cocolia's experiments. Rozaliya is often chided for being loud and troublesome, but she always acts like an adult when it comes to her sister.

Bronya Zaychik

Hailing from Northern Siberia, Bronya entered Valkyrie training at St. Freya's Academy, where she met Kiana and Mei. Though she is often seen as cold, she has proved herself to be a skilled combatant who can fight alongside any other.

Durandal

This S-rank Valkyrie is the captain of the Immortal Blades squad and usually keeps herself to herself. She does, however, share a mutual history with Rita Rossewiesse, who also serves as the squad's vice-captain.

As the class monitor for St. Freya's Academy, Fu is a strict and scholarly character. She's also been around for 50,000 years and used to be a member of the Fire Moths, an organisation that was dedicated to protecting humanity.

As a descendent of the Kaslana lineage, who were well-known for their combat prowess, Kallen was an excellent soldier and the pride of Schicksal. She died in the year 1477.

Liliya Olenyava

Liliya is in many ways the opposite of her twin sister, Rozaliya, and is generally more serious and level-headed. She also grew up in Cocolia's orphanage alongside Bronya and Seele.

Murata Himeko

This teacher at St. Freya's Academy is a tough and reliable fighter. She acts as the squad leader for Kiana Kaslana, Bronya Zaychik, and Raiden Mei, wading into battle with bravery and recklessness.

Raiden Mei

Mei is one of Honkai Impact's main characters and is a member of the St. Freya team. She is a kind character, showing patience for her teammates.

Rita Rossweisse
