"Homu, homu, mimi domu!"

Unusual HilichurlMenace of the Mansion is a unique common enemy.

For specific locations, see the HoYoLAB Teyvat Interactive Map.

Spawning Pattern

Two Unusual Hilichurls spawn every 12 hours, in 14 different possible locations, 6 in Mondstadt and 8 in Liyue. They do not spawn in Inazuma nor Dragonspine. Unlike other enemies, the Unusual Hilichurl is passive and will not react to players unless attacked.

There can only be one Unusual Hilichurl in the player's world at any given time. When an Unusual Hilichurl is defeated, it will go into its work briefcase and teleport to one of the 14 possible locations. After defeating the second one, there is a 12-hour cooldown before the Unusual Hilichurl can be fought again.

If the player finds them but leaves them alone, they will remain there for 12 hours before reappearing in another location. If the first one is defeated but not the second one, 12 hours after the first kill the spawn locations and count will reset. If the two Unusual Hilichurls are not found, they will respawn in a different location after some time (exact time is currently unknown; probably 12 hours).


Drops are limited to 10 successful encounters per day, as they can be farmed in Co-Op Mode.

Summon Help
During the Mimi Tomo event, it could call its comrades to assist it in battle, which included the following enemies:
  • The Unusual Hilichurl's comrades would automatically fall once the Unusual Hilichurl is defeated.



  • Bringing a character that can create a Geo Construct may be useful, in order to activate the Pressure Plate to create a wind current at the Stone Gate location.
  • It is quicker to find whether the Unusual Hilichurl is present at some locations than others. Visiting these locations first can save time; however, it may be dependent on render distance. These locations include: Windrise, Stormterror's Lair, Qingyun Peak, Lingju Pass, and Mingyun Village.


  • The Unusual Hilichurl can be knockbacked and pulled by Vacuum Fields while not using an attack. While using an attack, it cannot be interrupted.
  • The Unusual Hilichurl cannot be rendered immobile by Frozen, Petrification from Zhongli's Planet Befall, or Mona's Stellaris Phantasm.

The Unusual Hilichurl can be found in the following locations:

Mondstadt Locations

Liyue Locations


  • On the Unusual Hilichurl's mask is the character "." It is a reference to miHoYo's co-founder Liu Wei (刘伟), who previously appeared in the miHoYo games Houkai Gakuen 2 and Honkai Impact 3rd.
    • The yellow plushie that the Unusual Hilichurl pulls out of the suitcase is called Homu, which is a direct reference to Houkai Gakuen 2 and Honkai Impact 3; it first appeared in the former as Bronya's doll.
    • The Cabbages he uses and drops are a reference to the Honkai Impact 3rd mascot, Ai-chan, whose hairstyle and hair color are similar to a cabbage.
    • The number of Mora drops are exactly 233 Mora. "233" is a Chinese internet slang equivalent to "laugh out loud."
  • Translation of the Archive description: "Homu, Homu, we dance!"
  • Upon defeat, the Unusual Hilichurl says one of two phrases: "muhe domu" which can be translated from Hilichurlian as "want to dance", or "gusha buka" – "vegetables stomach", which may refer to him leaving cabbages and can be considered cursing (since gusha has negative connotations).
  • During the Version 1.5 event Mimi Tomo, the hilichurls that the player interacts with during the story refer to the Unusual Hilichurl as "Wei."
  • During the Energy Amplifier Initiation event, the Unusual Hilichurl can be affected by the Irminsul Fruit Fragment's aura.
