Ominous, alien beasts with dull colors that travel in packs much as wolves do.
It is said that they have the power to dissolve the world's borders.

Rifthounds (known as Wolves of the Rift in the Adventurer Handbook), also called the Riftwolves, are a group of enemies found usually in Tsurumi Island.

They come in two elements: Geo and Electro.


Rifthounds are monsters from the Abyss and are said to be able to erode the boundaries of the world. They were created by the alchemist Gold. Once prevalent throughout Teyvat during the cataclysm, they have since dwindled to small numbers following hunts and resistance, but have started to re-emerge once more.


Elite Enemies

Normal Bosses


Rifthounds deal elemental damage of their affinity as their primary damage. They are usually seen in pairs, consisting of two whelps, adults or a mix of the two in the overworld. Only on specific days they are found in a pack of three or four.

Their attacks cause Corrosion if they connect, but this status can be mitigated by a healing character. They can also be staggered with sufficient poise damage as well as Frozen or petrified to prevent them from attacking. The whelps are lower in weight and can be staggered by attacks that cause sufficient displacement.

Rifthounds start with the same resistance to all elements, but the resistance to their corresponding element decreases if forced into their devourer state, which is achieved by attacking the rifthound with the same element it is attuned to. However, this makes them fight significantly fiercer. This is signified as a Rage meter and when filled, the meter disappears and the rifthound's "fur" grows brighter as an indicator. They remain in this state permanently.
