Teyvat is made up of 7 major regions, each with its own Archon. They are responsible for safeguarding their corresponding regions. Thus far, only four Archons have been introduced in Genshin Impact: Venti, Zhongli, Raiden Shogun. The most recently introduced is Sumeru Archon, also known as Lesser Lord Kusanali or Nahida.

Recently, a Genshin Impact gamer has noticed an intriguing connection between the four Archons and a group of enemies referred to as Slimes.

How can the rulers of four nations and an opponent have some kind of relation? See the revelation below.

How are Archons and Slimes connected?

How many Slimes are there?

Slimes in Genshin Impact are creatures formed from compacted elemental energy. They are one of the most frequently encountered enemy types in the game. These creatures possess varying abilities depending on the element they are infused with. Apparently, we are having:

  • Anemo Slime
  • Cryo Slime
  • Dendro Slime
  • Electro Slime
  • Geo Slime
  • Hydro Slime
  • Pyro Slime

While there are seven types of Slimes, we only saw the introduction of 4 Archons up until now.

Slimes are connected to the Archons?

A Reddit user by the name of Redgomotor has posted an intriguing observation regarding the connection between Archons and Slimes in Genshin Impact. According to the post, each type of Slime enemy in the game bears a resemblance to an Archon of the same element.

Anemo Slime & Venti

For instance, the Anemo Slime is capable of flying, much like Venti, the Anemo Archon who can utilize his Skyward Sonnet to soar on wind currents.

Anemo Slimes can fly just like Venti.

Geo Slime & Zhongli

Similarly, the Geo Slime can make up a sturdy shield similar to the way Liyue's Archon Zhongli can produce the strongest shield with his Dominus Lapidis.

Dendro Slime & Nahida

In the meantime, there are two types of Dendro Slimes in Genshin Impact, each with a different size.

The smaller one supposedly represents the current Dendro Archon, Nahida, who is the only Archon with a child-like model. The larger Dendro Slime could be a symbolic representation of the former Dendro Archon, Greater Lord Rukkhadevata, who was portrayed as a taller character in the game's official cut.

Dendro Slimes have two sizes like its Archon and her predecessor.

The larger Dendro Slime could be a symbolic resemblance to the old Dendro Archon known as Greater Lord Rukkhadevata, who was portrayed as a taller character in the game's official cutscenes and trailer videos. She perished during the catastrophic events that occurred 500 years before the current timeline.

Electro Slime & Raiden Shogun

Last but not least, there are also two types of Electro Slimes. What flabbergasts us is the Electro Archon also has a twin. The twins are Ei and Makoto, the latter passed away to the former's biggest grief.

Other findings about Archons and Slimes

We are currently waiting for the release of Murata (Pyro Archon), Focalors (Hydro Archon), and Tsaritsa (Cryo Archon). Other Reddit users find out the behaviors of Slimes with these elements:

  • Pyro Slime: explodes costing a certain amount of HP
  • Hydro Slime: imprisons players
  • Cryo Slime: makes it rain icicles, also creates shields

Given that Focalors is the God of Justice and there's a big emphasis on courts in Fontaine, the Hydro one imprisoning might be fitting. Meanwhile, players suspect that the Slimes' attacks may say something about those of the Archons in the future.

The only way to confirm this is to wait for their introduction and gameplay in the future.
