One of my favorite things in Genshin Impact are the references that really get me to latch onto the world and its characters. I’m reminded that Mihoyo’s tagline — tech otaku save the world — probably isn’t just for show. There are plenty of references that are just passing verbal or visual references, but my favorite thing about Genshin Impact is several characters can be viewed as homages, right down to their visual design and even move set.
One reference that you may have seen floating around is the achievement that is a direct reference to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure called Gold Experience Requiem. The achievement itself is the word-for-word name for Giorno Giovanna’s Stand from part 5, Golden Wind. On a smaller note, the Japanese voice actors for Diluc and Kaeya are the same as Giorno and Mista Guido respectively. Funnily enough, I recognized Diluc’s voice immediately due to how similar in temperament he is to Giorno, but I didn’t realize Kaeya’s voice actor until much later. Kaeya is very calm and composed, which contrasts Mista’s excited and usually panicked composure. I would’ve put two and two together sooner if Kaeya accidentally hurt himself the same way Mista ends up shooting himself more than his enemies.
