Brown-Haired Genshin Impact Characters: All 8 Revealed

While Genshin Impact doesn’t give bonuses for having characters with similar physical characteristics, making a team based on something silly, like hair color, can be fun. There are eight folks with brown hair, giving you ample Genshin Impact characters to choose from when making your brunette team.

Overall, one of the most popular things about Genshin Impact is that you don’t need the most powerful gaming PC to play the game and experience the beautiful cel-shaded graphics. Consequently, making teams that are aesthetically appealing to you is an entirely valid way to enjoy this title. So, to make a team of brown-haired characters, let’s look at who you can choose from.
