Kuki Shinobu abilities

She’s an Electro character, and while she won’t get her own banner as she is a four-star character, she will debut in one of the next Genshin Impact banners. 

The Kuki Shinobu banner release date is June 21, 2022. She will be part of Itto's banner, Oni's Royale, which runs during the second phase of Version 2.7..

Kuki Shinobu is the deputy of the Arataki gang, and it’s her job to keep Itto in line, covering for his antics and compensating for any damages he causes, as well as collecting him from jail whenever he gets in trouble. She studied law in Liyue shortly before Inazuma went into lockdown, though her parents wanted her to be a Shrine Maiden like her older sister Miyuki.

Kuki Shinobu is suited to a healer role who provides some sub DPS support in team compositions. With her healing and skill damage based off of her maximum HP, you should focus on raising her maximum health and Energy Recharge as much as you can to get the most out of her abilities - similar to Yelan's best build. Unlike Yelan, using Kuki Shinobu's Elemental Skill actually drains her health - however this is actually a good thing, as her Elemental Burst damage and passive healing capabilities are boosted when she is below 50% HP.

Kuki Shinobu Skills

Normal attack: Shinobu’s Shadowsword

Normal Attack: Perform up to four rapid strikes 

Charged Attack: Consumes stamina to unleash two rapid strikes.

Plunging Attack: Plunges from mid-air, damaging any opponents hit on the way down and dealing AoE damage on impact

Elemental skill: Sanctifying Ring

Kuki Shinobu’s elemental skill creates a Grass Ring of Sanctification around the active player, at the cost of a portion of her health. This ring follows the active player and deals electro damage to nearby opponents every 1.5 seconds, as well as restoring health to active characters based on Kuki’s maximum health.

Kuki Shinobu cannot be brought below 20% health as a result of this ability, and it has a cooldown of 15 seconds.

Elemental Burst: Goei Narukami Kariyama Rite

Kuki stabs her blade into the ground, which creates a barrier that deals electro damage to all enemies within its area of effect. The damage dealt is based on Kuki’s maximum health. If her health is below 50% at the point she uses her elemental burst, it will last longer.


Like Yelan, she gets 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Liyue Expedition for 20 hours. In addition, she has the following passive talents:

Breaking Free – When Kuki Shinobu’s health is below 50%, her healing bonus is increased by 15%.

Heart’s Repose – Sanctifying Ring’s abilities are boosted depending on Kuki’s elemental mastery:
  • Healing is increased by 75% of elemental mastery
  • Damage is increased by 25% of elemental mastery


To Cloister Compassion – Kuki’s elemental burst AoE is increased by 50%

To Forsake Fortune – Grass Ring of Santification’s duration is increased by

To Sequester Sorrow – Increases elemental skill level by three to a maximum of 15

To Sever Sealing – When the attacks of active characters affected by Grass Ring of Sanctification hit opponents, a Thundergrass Mark will land on the opponent’s position, dealing AoE electro damage based on 9.7% of Shinobu’s max health. This effect can occur once every five seconds.

To Cease Courtesies – Increases elemental burst level by three to a maximum of 15

To Ward Weakness – When Kuki Shinobu’s health drops to 25% or lower (or when lethal damage is dealt), she will not fall and instead gains 150 elemental mastery for 15 seconds. This effect can be triggered once every 60 seconds, and will automatically activate when her health reaches one
