Genshin Impact’s Alhaitham is proving to be irresistible to fans all over

Genshin Impact character Alhaitham has seen a surge in popularity on social media.

More than two years after its release, Genshin Impact continues to receive periodic updates that add new content and playable characters to the game. In Ver.3.4, which is due out on January 18, the characters Alhaitham and Yaoyao will become available via the game’s gacha system.

Alhaitham is a 5-star character, the highest rarity in the game, so he is expected to be rather powerful. Not to mention that he has also captivated many with his intelligence and good looks. The undeniable allure of the character has driven a host of fans into a frenzy, GamesRadar+ reports.

Alhaitham is the scribe of the Sumeru Akademiya. He is a man of extraordinary intelligence and talent who leads a life free from worldly cares. Even in the past, he was a very popular character, and thanks to the wealth of posts by users eagerly awaiting the release of any Alhaitham information or artwork, the word “Naihaitham” even trended on Twitter in Japan. Naihaitham is a play on Alhaitham’s name and is used when no new information about the character was released (in Japanese “nai” means non-existent).

After new information and a trailer for the character were released this month, Alhaitham fans have started posting a slew of fanart. Many amateur and even professional illustrators have drawn Alhaitham each in their own style. What seems to be most striking in these illustrations is Alhaitham’s bulky yet well-proportioned physique. Although a scholarly character in nature, he possesses large muscles with chiseled pecs and well-defined abs. Not only is Alhaitham incredibly smart, but he also has an exceptional body.

The Genshin Impact fanbase has a tendency to welcome muscular male characters with open arms—Arataki Itto and Tartaglia being perfect examples.

Alhaitham also boasts remarkable bulk in addition to being super cut. His character design no doubt has some fans practically drooling. Personally, I (the original author of this article) am impressed not just with his muscular torso, but also the imposing feel of his arms, legs, and waist.

Alhaitham’s sexiness is further amplified by the performance of his voice actors: Yuuichirou Umehara in Japanese and Nazeeh Tarsha in English. Once you have a better understanding of the all-round appeal of the character, you can begin to see just why fans are so excited. It is not too long now before Ver.3.4 is released, and there will surely be countless players sending out prayers to the gacha gods in the hopes of acquiring Alhaitham through his event Wish.
