If you’ve been watching Genshin Impact twitter, you may have caught word of an upcoming character – specifically Ayato – being a horse. Seriously.I mean, in a fantasy world with oni, talking birds, dragons, and Paimon, it certainly wouldn’t be too weird right?
We’re sorry to inform you that this leak is totally fake, a joke blown up way out of proportion. In this article, we’ll break down the source of these hijinx, and how exactly it spread so fast across the community.
The Ayato horse leak originates with Twitter user Mushi sharing a screenshot of the Wangshen Funeral Parlor discord – a popular hub for Genshin Impact leaks. In this screenshot, Discord user abc69 is asked for some juicy info on Ayato Kamisato (a character we’ve seen mentioned in character stories but not actually seen in-game). In response, they said that Ayato is a horse, a clear joke surely meant to get a few laughs and little else.
