Released not long ago yet the plot of Genshin Impact has quickly gathered many talks. With a vast world and many unsolved mysteries, players can make countless different speculations and hypotheses. The list of Genshin Impact theory, although hard to believe, is expected to become true by the fan community.

A theory suggests that Honkai Impact and Genshin Impact share the same universe.

1. Honkai Impact and Genshin Impact have the same universe

This theory exploded even before Genshin Impact was officially released. The resemblance between the unidentified goddess in the early game and the Herrscher of Void in Honkai Impact is where all the speculations began.

Some of the character designs are also inspired by Honkai Impact, such as Venti and Wendy, Raiden Shogun and Raiden Mei, or Yae Miko and Yae Sakura. The latest leak also suggests that Genshin Impact Yelan is connected to Fu Hua in Honkai Impact.

What's more, miHoYo often reuses character designs from previous games, so for Honkai and Genshin, fans believe that the two games share a common universe.

One of the most convincing pieces of evidence for this theory is when Otto Apocalypse - the main antagonist in Honkai Impact, found an image of the dragon Dvalin in the Imaginary Tree.

2. Lumine or Aether is the final boss

Most likely, the final boss that the player must encounter in Genshin Impact is the lost twin brother/sister of the Traveler. Many people have tried to connect the events of the main plot and have assumed that, after a long time apart, Lumine and Aether will turn against each other.

Genshin Impact Traveler theory comes in various forms, but the majority is more inclined to at least one of them being evil.

3. Albedo will lose control

This Genshin Impact theory includes Albedo, the Chief Alchemist with a mysterious past. At the end of the Dragonspine quest, Albedo wondered if the Traveler could stop the havoc if one day he lost control and destroyed everything.

Many consider this a harbinger of the future where Albedo would actually go rouge or turn himself into a villain. The hypothesis that good characters switch to the dark side is considered a popular Genshin Impact lore theory.

The Traveler will probably have to confront Albedo, which is not something fans wanted at all.

4. Kaeya is a secret villain

Kaeya is another character with a complicated background. He is the adopted son of the Ragnvindr family, but his true identity remains unclear.

Many fans believe that Kaeya is related to the land of Khaenri'ah that has long been destroyed by the gods. Some even suggest that Kaeya is still working as a spy.

This theory has very little chance of coming true, but even so, many people keep hoping that Kaeya is a secret villain that they will fight later.

5. Paimon is Unknown God

The Unknown God is the source of many important events in Genshin Impact. After being separated from his twin by the Unknown God, the Traveler awakens in Mondstadt and encounters a stranger being named Paimon a few months later.

Despite her cute appearance and lively personality, Paimon still raises doubts among fans. Genshin Impact theory Paimon is consequently on high discussion and has been there for a long time.

The theory that Paimon is an Unknown God or the weakened form of the Unknown God is believed by many fans.

The gods in the game are all named after the demons of Solomon: From Barbatos, Morax, to the Baal and Beelzebub twins. Paimon is also one of those demon names, so does this mean she has anything to do with the gods?  This theory has even turned into a popular joke and meme in the GI community.

6. Players will get to the Abyss

Abyss in Genshin Impact is a mysterious location that is closely related to Khaenri'ah. It lies outside the normal range of space and time. According to the game, it has a connect to an ocean, although the nature and physical characteristics of the Abyss are unclear.

In the future, fans believe that players will be able to discover Abyss as the other sibling of the Traveler is the leader of the mysterious force Abyss Order.

7. Teyvat is a hollow planet

This Genshin Impact theory is quite popular on Reddit and Facebook. Accordingly, a Genshin Impact lore theory suggests that Teyvat is a hollow planet. It is based on the long-standing hypothesis that humans are living on the surface of a planet, but deep within the earth of another world has yet been discovered.

The reason players believed in the "Empty Teyvat" is due to an event in the 1.1 version. The 6th Executor, Scaramouche, stated that the sky was only "a lie".

Therefore, they assumed that the sky we see is just an illusion or a product of God, maybe even the entrance to the Abyss.
