Primitive humanoid monsters that can be found all across Teyvat.
Most people have already given up on trying to communicate with the hilichurls, believing that they are monsters simply incapable of communication.

Adventurer Handbook


Hilichurls (Chinese: 丘丘人) are a goblin-like family of monsters in Genshin Impact that are always found wearing a mask. They are one of the first types of monsters and enemies you encounter in the game. While basic variants such as unarmed Hilichurls, Hilichurl Fighters and Hilichurl Shooters are common from the start of the game, Samachurls and especially Mitachurls are rare at low Adventure Ranks. However, the latter two will appear more frequently as the player progresses through the game.

The primitive wandering inhabitants of Teyvat's wildernesses.
They look very similar to humanity but seem to have lost both their intellect and spirituality. Their presence on the continent has been recorded for over a thousand years, and yet they have neither history nor civilization.
Since the pitch-black calamity from five hundred years ago, they have begun to spread in large numbers across the land. They are not very strong, and they lack organization, but they nonetheless bring sizable trouble to humans every once in a while.


This is the most basic type of Hilichurls. It does not have a weapon and will only attack with melee hand swipes, or by throwing rocks when they cannot reach their target.

Hilichurl Fighters

The primitive wandering inhabitants of Teyvat's wildernesses.
Ill-tempered warriors for their tribes, they are simple-minded believers in the power of brute force. If their muscles grow strong enough and their strength great enough, then one day they too shall raise up a great shield and become a mitachurl... Or will they?


This Hilichurl is equipped with a wooden club and is capable of dealing more damage than the regular Hilichurl, but is restricted to melee attacks only. If affected by Pyro, its club can be lit aflame. After a certain amount of time, the club will break and the Hilichurl will resort to clawing and throwing rocks at the target.

Hilichurl Berserkers

The primitive wandering inhabitants of Teyvat's wildernesses.
These hilichurls wield flaming clubs and charge with reckless abandon to chase intruding adventurers off. Most wildfires in the grasslands or forests are not actually caused by a certain special Knight, but due to the actions of these hilichurls.


This Hilichurl uses a flaming club to frantically charge and attack its target, inflicting damage in a rapid session as well as Pyro damage. Its flaming club can be put out with Hydro elemental attacks, but the Hilichurl will reignite it after a short time later.

A traditional depiction of a Amanojaku

  • Hilichurls speak the Hilichurlian language.
  • Hilichurls may be inspired by a type of oni called Amanojaku (Japanese: 天邪鬼 "heavenly evil spirit"). It is also called a jaki (Japanese: 邪鬼) in some branches of Buddhism. These creatures are also the inspiration for the main enemy type in the game Ōkami, which also wear masks.
  • Although it seems that Hilichurls have an affinity for remnants of the past, there is no hint about their connection with the lost civilization.[1]
  • A tribe in Dadaupa Gorge called the Eclipse tribe, worships an object that appears to represent an eclipsed sun. This object might be a reference to the now fallen Eclipse Dynasty in Khaenri'ah.
  • Hilichurls seem to recite poems or songs, according to Jacob Musk. These range from expressions of grief, festivity, and so on.[2]
  • Certain missions feature friendlier, non-hostile Hilichurls.
  • An unarmed Hilichurl will throw rocks with their left, suggesting that it's supposed to be also used by Hilichurl Fighters (who wield clubs with their right).
  • If a Pyro Hilichurl Grenadier attempts to dig out a slime in shallow water, they will humorously show up empty handed while looking on with confusion. Cryo Hilichurl Grenadiers can successfully do so, however, and interestingly, the cryo slimes they dig up appear to be Frozen.
  • In the manga, Hilichurls during the time of Vennessa had different appearances compared to their present-day counterparts. They were depicted with more colorful masks, and could be seen using traditional bows instead of the crossbows now wielded by Hilichurl Shooters. Notably, there was also a kind of flying Hilichurl with bat-like wings that is not known to appear in any other media. [3]
