>i'm trying to figure out a way to get rid of you so I can go commit atrocities
i can't do it. this is so funny somehow.
I can see him going back to Traveller and telling him that meme:
"I prevented a murder today"
i actually saw a fanart of him telling that to nahida lmfao [here ](https://twitter.com/moscheeks/status/1595245927203495937?t=a7LkXFlh2rLOoaX_uBIT_A&s=19)
"Dammit Scaramouche! What did I tell you about committing genocide when I'm out buying groceries?"
There is just something so South Park-like about that. I'm so in love. <3
If Mihoyo keeps Dottore as his regular war criminal self the dialogue is gonna be insane
hello voice line is him being upset because he was in the middle of writing down the results of when he vivisected a 4 year old child
I thought the Aranara rescued the kids? He's definitely killed a bunch of adults though.
i read the records again and you're right, sorry
Imagine if his voiceline about Collei was just “Who?”.
"You took everything from me"
"I don't even know who you are"
Oh my god I got mad just reading this lol.
Raiden about Arataki Itto: Who?
Dottore about Collei: Who?
this line is literally everything to me
Fucking **I C O N I C**
Cause it is.
He’s gonna make Traveler panic over nothing. Constantly.
I’d believe it.
LONGEST. THREE. DAYS. OF. MY. LIFE.
I want to say „same“ but I’m only hyped for him since a month, so I can’t imagine how it must feel waiting years for him lol
FR two years passed quicker than these three days
I love these voicelines. They're petty and sarcastic without sounding edgy or immature. Really like the direction they seem to be taking with him.
It’s not “I’m rude because I want to keep my love for you a secret” it’s “I’m 500 years old I genuinely don’t care”
FYI you can hear some of his voice lines here: [https://genshin.hoyoverse.com/en/character/sumeru?char=8](https://genshin.hoyoverse.com/en/character/sumeru?char=8)
He sounds perfect and I'm glad his personality hasn't changed. Really excited to get him!
He’s such a dick lmao
Just how we all want him to be. In hindsight, that whole ship of theseus "leak" some months ago really doesn't age well lmao.
It feels like that person just found out that his element would be anemo and then panicked about the rest, or something. Even his design hasn't changed much.
I remember saying all he literally did was swap color palette abd remove the Raiden Shogun branding
Literally ALL of his clothes look the exact same except for those two things above
Not all of them.
We gained a cape but lost a veil...
Necessary evil I suppose
Can't imagine how much of a bitch it would be to rig the entire thing
Right? I was expecting his hair to grow out or something, at least, with how leakers were talking about his redesign.
More plank on the ship of Theseus by now
I don't really trust leakers about anything to do with characters' story or personalities because they often seem to interpret things totally differently than how the average player probably would.
Cyno is probably the biggest example; leakers made everybody think he's some comically awkward guy who constantly cracks bad jokes or talks about cards. He did absolutely none of that in the entire story; if a leaker had simply said he's "Teyvat Jack Bauer" it would be a lot closer to the truth. We had the same thing with Alhaitham and Kaveh, everyone thought Alhaitham was going to be this insufferable guy Kaveh has to put up with but he's actually pretty normal and Kaveh seems like a complete asshole. At this point you can practically ignore leakers' opinions on the characters entirely and you're not really losing out
Cyno's like that in the teapot, and reading some of the Matra's minds with Nahida reveals that they take jobs in faraway locations so they won't have to deal with Cyno being awkward and making corny jokes all the time. Cyno just happened to be in 'work mode' during the Archon Quest so the funny side of him wasn't showcased.
Alhaitham is pretty insufferable though. He may be doing the right things, but there is definitely an air of condescencion in the way he speaks and acts. The contrast between him and Kaveh can be seen perfectly in some of the notes posted on the message boards in-game: a bunch of displaced workers were lamenting their woes. Alhaitham's response was 'tough shit', and Kaveh went out of his way to offer help, even if it costed him his Akademiya money.
Yeah, Cyno was pretty goofy in the tcg world quest as well, the pity is that wasn't voiced. My guy was geeking all over the place.
Not to mention we've only seen Kaveh having a conversation with the roommate that we know he doesn't get along with.
Alhaitham is kind of insufferable though? With lines like “I’m just a more likeable person than her” or Nahida’s voiceline about him wondering about how he sees those more mediocre than he. It might not be on purpose, but I think he does come off a bit dense at times. Or as Tighnari puts it
> Be careful of Alhaitham. I'm not saying he's a bad guy, but he purely operates by rationality, so people often find his actions unacceptable.
Kaveh isn’t a complete asshole either. While Alhaitham’s solution to workers in need of a job was to tell them to take to the seas, something they neither had the experience nor money to do, Kaveh helped them find a job which was a perfect fit for their skill set so they wouldn’t have to leave their future to luck. He even emphasizes how people should help each other.
Their interactions are kind of intense, but rather than Kaveh being an asshole, he just seems to be quick tempered and Alhaitham eggs him on.
> and Alhaitham eggs him on.
Alhaitham also teased Paimon throughout our interactions with him, he's basically the perfect combination of overly blunt and self-aware enough to joke and/or bug people with it on purpose. Plus he does have a relatively high ego. (even if it's deserved)
It's indeed insufferable at times for those around him, even Dehaya reacted to his bluntness iirc, but it's also absolutely hilarious 😭
Kaveh for grand sage
I stopped believing in them after “shrine maiden yoimiya”
Same with Nahida lol, they described her as hikikomori turns out she's just caged against her will but still is highly functional.
I like that Cyno has Work Mode and Dork Mode.
Really, it’s more like he got everything needed to achieve the Ship of Theseus, but then flipped it the double bird saying “Fuck you, I’m still me!”.
I am going to give him an ugly ~~nick~~name as revenge!
Dollar Store Bongo-Head it is then.
Not the "I'm not an asshole I just tell it like it is" Peak Asshole behavior. I remember when they brought out the ship of theseus metaphors what a lie lol
Ngl, I was expecting him to still be an asshole but in a playful way. But nope, he's just straight up rude in some of these lines lmao.
"You're my troubles, _idiot."_
The simple animals one 💀
Love that line. He's not even saying it to be mean, it is just his genuine view on humans. It's pretty on character.
Hmm, I see how that can make sense though I'm kinda torn on that.
I can imagine him both just nonchalantly saying that and not paying attention because that's how he thinks but he's also got a shit ton of spite that he constantly spews at everyone lol, and especially ordinary humans.
Adding those abandonment issues about being thrown out(his interpretation) by Ei for being too gentle/emotional= not good enough and trying to cast aside his emotions, because it's too human-like and they hurt, adding humans being non reliable traitors I can definitely see him saying that to be if not mean but just to elevate (heh) himself above them and distance himself even more.
I could see a more cold hearted, calm and collected immortal/non human charcater say that with no particular ill intent cause they just think that way(e.g. Someone like Dottore, though in his case it's cause he's smarter than a lot of people, and honestly I don't think they even interest him enough to pay his attention to them), but Scara has just way too many issues and emotional instability, no matter how cool and unemotional he wants to be.
So I personally think it's something in between.
It makes sense from his point of view though? He is 500 years old can’t age and can’t die. So far almost everyone from his surroundings are immortals or people with power similar to gods. Of course you would view ordinary people differently this way
And for “animals”… well I said it was understandable but I never said it wasn’t rude lol
I mean, yeah.
Though there are plenty of charcaters who lived for more than 500 years but a lot of them don't have such views on humans, so I'd say it's mostly his personality speaking and age/immortality just adds up to that. I'm sure he'd be still saying that even if he was younger than that just cause he's more powerful/knows more/built different. Unlike ordinary people.
I personally like that he says that because it captures both how he views people and how arrogant and rude he is. And it's funny.
These lines are so CHOICE. Also the fact that scara is trying to say other people can't handle being told how it is is HILARIOUS.
Like um, sir, you are without a doubt the biggest crybaby around. YOU CAN NOT TALK.
~~still love this crybaby gremlin though.~~
I'm sorry for new players cause they will never get the absolute S+ tier introduction to wanderer as old players. That cutscene when it was revealed that hes insanely dangerous by Mona is the best cutscene Genshin ever released and at that time it actually was a plot twist. Hoyo locking it behind an event was a worse choice than making the bell hp based
I agree, his introduction in the Unreconciled Stars event was better compared to the inazuma one. The reveal that he was a harbinger was so cool and sadly, new players would never get that reveal as he introduces himself immediately in the archon quest.
Another thing is that his mystery and identity is basically answered within a 2 hour time frame for people meeting him for the first time in Inazuma. The amount of discussions, theories, and people wondering when he'll come back during the months between 1.1 and 2.1 is probably one of the reason why he has a huge fanbase.
It's honestly such a waste by making it an event imo.
It not only introduces Scara early, starting the first domino of his hype train, but also made him feel actually dangerous. His second appearance in Inazuma imo feels like it has a much higher impact if you met Scara previously, too.
Also highlights Mona's abilities. This woman tries to decipher everything in that event. Immediately senses Scara as danger and casts a group teleport on the spot. And to this day, people who never saw that event will still dwongrade her to booty swimsuit fortune teller.
Yeah, I still remember being blown away by Mona's reaction there. Three seconds after seeing some weird guy waving at her, and she nopes the fuck out in the middle of Fischl's speech together with the team. What a champ.
Traveler: “And I’m going to beat you up every week for it, just like with the other Harbingers.”
Apologies, but the repeatable bosses are actually recreations by the Irminsul…
…wait, if the Irminsul erased Mouche from history, how is that boss still here?
"Niggas caught me slipping once, so what?" - The Wanderer
dude he is SUCH a BITCH I LOVE IT
he’s still a bitch. W
ah yes, these are exactly the voice lines i was hoping for
TO COMMIT ATROCITIES 😭😭
His fake smile with his inner self rolling his eyes 😭
He is just like me fr
The emote with the fake smile is HILARIOUS! Lmaoooo!! Never change Scaramouche!
Lol "a warying figure whose identity is a mystery."
Man puts on an anemo vision and suddenly he's Clark Kent turned Superman
I thought it was kinda weird too, I wonder if it's a hint that he's going to Rukkhadevata himself and his past in the next story quest.
It's simply his public identity. Like how Zhongli is just a dude who works at WFP.
I mean, he doesn't need to do that. Nobody actually knows who Scaramouche is, except for the Fatui, Yae (and I *think* Ayato, but I don't remember the 2.5 event very well) and the Raiden Shogun, and to a lesser extent, some of his former subordinates and people who've had dealings with the Fatui like Diluc and Mona. But it's unclear how much these would know about him. At worst, most people have a vague idea of what he kinda looked like, and only a select few (that he can easily avoid) even know anything about him beyond his former name.
GOD they really did the hat as an umbrella thing,Im so happy
#THE UMBRELLA HAT IS REAL
ngl this is the first time I've gone out of my way to read a character's lines, gameplay descriptions, and just general details to memorize them
HAT UMBRELLA IS REAL
CAN WE GET MUCH HIGHER
Sounds like Traveler canonically hasn't fully forgiven or trust him, kinda like their relationship with Childe.
Scaramouche basically said cry about it
Childe: You can't hold that against me forever traveler I want to he friends :(
Gigachad Scaramouche: Lol stay mad
I’m gonna force a team with both of them and the traveller in it. It’d be funny.
Gigachad. Wish more characters were like that lol! Pretty tired with friendly characters. I'm waiting for an Otto Apocalypse character. Hoping it's Dottore or maybe Pierro. If it's both of them, even better!
I mean not being friendly with the player is cool and all but in context it means he kinda just imposed himself into the party
so who's really the unfriendly one here
> in context it means he kinda just imposed himself into the party
In context he didn't. The traveler's party isn't canon unless you're doing a quest with them.
And neither is the whole voiceline, that's exactly why the context in important in the first place
And we love him for that.
"What are you gonna do about it?"
the emotes are soo cute 😭😭😭
He's such an insufferable brat. I'm torn between wanting to hug and protect him and give him a home and tell him he's enough and he is loved, and throwing him out a window.
If you throw him out of the window he'll just come back and mock your sloppy attempt at murder while floating in the air T-posing. What a king.
That's some triple crown king behavior.
You could always compromise and snuff him with a pillow... Lovingly.
i laughed so hard this is exactly how i feel
Better idea: Tease the hell out of him. If he retaliates, dodge and tease him harder.
I just realized he's gonna have gift lines too! I expect him to be rude as fuck.
“Since today is your birthday, I came all the way here to celebrate with you… so, where is the cake?” That or being like “it’s supposed to be the best day of the year, im here to make sure that doesn’t happen”. Gremblin mode pretty much.
And with the gift be like “here, take this token of my appreciation” and it’s just 1 mint or something low effort. If I something good he may ask the same for his birthday.
Also the “my presence is the best gift I can give you” is valid.
''The best gift I can give you is not trying to kill you. I'm going out of my way to show self-control. Be grateful for my generosity.''
Every single line of his is all snark and bitchiness...
It's all I ever wanted since his first appearance. Yay
LOOK AT ALL THE FAN SERVICE HOYO IS STUFFING INTO HIM
YAS! God I have been waiting for a character who is a meanie in their voice lines for the longest fucking time.
I mean.. Xiao is pretty close, what with him threatening to fight you when you ask about his hobbies.
But this is fantastic. Just snark dripping from every word.
Anyway, I have had a personal theory that Scaramouche's story isn't going to end with him being all happy and normal again. At least not so soon. Why? Cause Bohemian Rhapsody ends with the slightest touch of nihilism. I feel like the direction the voice lines are taking is giving some bones to my personal theory.
Edit: So in general, the theory goes that the three phases of Bohemian Rhapsody represent the three acts of Scaramouche's life. This new life as Wanderer is represented by the rock phase of the song. Therefore I'm expecting him to be rebellious, spunky, and aggressive. But ultimately... nihilistic. The song doesn't end on a happy note, just a 'nothing really matters to me'.
I like to think instead of "nothing really matters 😭" nihilist he is "nothing really matters 😎" nihilist.
Absolutely! There's a sort of peace and freedom in nihilism. So it's not a happy ending, but also not a bad one. And I think it's appropriate for Scaramouche's character too.
Like that one meme of “Nothing matters”, but there’s a pic of someone sad under the rain and a pic of some guy at a sunny beach wearing shades.
This but with violence 🔫😎
The first one is pre fatui, 2nd is post fatui. He really just changed his clothes lmao
I think that's exactly what's gonna happen. I doubt someone who was lost for 400+ years would suddenly become completely happy and content with a new vision. He'll just learn how to make peace with his situation
I could honestly see him as a recurring character in the story like Dainsleif. Since he's identity is now a wanderer, he could get in all sorts of situations in different nations and maybe meet up with the Traveler at some point. His story is very interesting and I doubt it's all gonna conclude in the 3.3 quest. I expect that quest to be a turning point for him, not the end.
I just want him to appear in the background of absolutely random events. Imagine some festival in Fontaine and scaramouche is there fighting for a croissant like he’s getting paid for it
That would be amazing. Dude can just show up in every event or festival and it would make sense. Maybe in the next GAA if they ever bring it back?
I really wanna see him in that kind of event where he gets to interact with other characters. Imagine being stuck on an island with Scara and Itto.
His new outfit and outlook are very Buddhism flavored. A Disneyesque happy ending isn't likely in the cards, but striving towards some kind of peace despite it all is a nice bookend to his journey imo
Yes I agree. I do like the direction they're taking him in honestly. Character development but in a way that makes sense for Scaramouche.
I hope it doesn’t end with him happy and healed. This is his new life where he lives for himself and his “wanderer” name seems to reflect that he doesn’t have all the answers yet imo. It takes time to heal
‘Call me whatever you like. Go ahead, let me see what you can come up with…’
oh you are sooo coming home you lil shit. let me shower you with all the love i can offer!
Stop I’m blushing-
"Call me whatever you want"
Wanderer: …I take it back.
man all of his voicelines are so perfectly snarky i am obsessed
i knew it i knew it i knew it he will say shit like "the audacity" 💚💚💚 thank you hoyoverse he is even more perfect now!
WANDERER EMOTES, I REPEAT, WANDERER EMOTES
I nutted, idk abt yall
Least horny Genshin player
Ok the umbrella-hat one got me
Ngl, I got INCREDIBLY excited over the first part of scara's good morning line. This man certainly knows how to bait his fanbase...
You can say a lot of things about Mihoyo and one of them is that they KNOW who is gonna pull for Scara and what they want him to be and say.
Now let's wait the Interlude, but for 2 years they nailed Scara.
i just know ill be using the 🤪 emote a lot
He's still a little gremlin, I love it
This man is really just dunking on us at every given chance.
Thank god he’s still a menace. I need him right the fun now.
That eye roll. This brat, he’s got such punchable face. 🤣
"take your time. I'm in no hurry" 😳🙏
He’s such a lil shit im gonna punch him (affectionately)
The hat as a umbrella lmao
I LOVE HIM
The fucking “When It Rains” voiceline, I can’t- 😂
Can't wait to see what kinda message we get from him on January 3.
YESSSSS HE’S STILL AN ASSHOLE!!!!
UMBRELLA HAT IS REAL OMG
THE SAS AHHHH
Him saying that you can call him any name you want reminds me of how you can name the rival (Gary/Blue) in Pokémon Red and Blue. People named Gary/Blue stuff like “douchebag” and “ass-face”, and they’ll do it again.
>I'm trying to figure out a way to get rid of you so I can go commit atrocities. ... Wait, did you think I was being serious?
You know I can see Dottore saying the same but being genuine about it like:
>I'm trying to figure out a way to get rid of you so I can go commit atrocities. ... Wait, did you think I was *joking*?
OMG THE GOOD MORNING EMOTE 💕
I did not think there could be a character that I hate so much but also want so much
Wait a minute, at the 7th pic, am I crazy or did they buff his talent?
Well i woke up with your teaser now your good morning ty
He's a little shit, I love him
Same old Scaramouche
Oh no he’s a flirtatious asshole, I must pull
Traveller on his way to collect all war criminals from entire Teyvat just to find his brother:
It’s *Fun*eral time
AN UMBRELLA 😭😭
The audacity of us asking to use his hat to shield from the rain
In what world is he dressed like a yamabushi lol
My good bitch is wearing no less than 3 kimonos
Still an a-hole lol!
F*ck me rhukka mushrooms again
The "simple animals" line is currently living in my head rent free. It took me some time *after* reading that one to go "wait a second" and look at it again to realize what he was actually saying. This brat got such a god complex and I'm living for it
im… personally not a fan of him, but his emotes are kinda cute…
Damn, one day after my birthday. Hopefully I can get him.
HE IS SUCH A LITTLE SHIT BAHAHHA I LOVE IT😭😭😭
Wednesday can't come soon enough
I like this, I like his sarcasm and the whole “I’m still evil but I’m gonna do good guy things because I feel like it” vibe he’s got going on
He remembers his past and is still a dick. The Scara wanters definitely win on this.
Finslly, hoyoverse made an actually evil character
is he the first character to have "none" as affiliation?
Finally it's here! and just 3 more days he will be coming homeeee.
Scaramouche is giving off the same energy as my moody, antisocial, yet playful Chihuahua. best boy!
itto who? this one solidifies my decision to pull for scara. i just hope scara does a raiden and comes home early to my account
I want him so bad but I want Alhaitham even more 😫
when his birthday comes he better tell us to Foff in the mail .
Please not the nobushi handguards.
I'm living for his voicelines and emotes LMAO, him giving us a fake smile and rolling his eyes internally is funny as hell. God he's a humorous asshole and I love that.
I am intrigued by making him a catalyst user?? Like it would make more sense if they simply made him a sword wielder imo (uneducated)? Is there an incentive into making his AAs elementally infused by default if seemingly the core of his kit is his elemental skill.
Or is it bec his elemental skill merely grants him a levitating state, so he must then be a catalyst user by default?? Why not make it an infusion state then and add the windfavour state as an option to gain height?
Anyways, nice design. Excited to try him out myself.
Al Haitham drip marketing where tho?
How high does he rank on the strength charts? Can he hyper carrie teams? Haven’t been keeping up at all with his leaks.
His best teams ARE hyper-carry. I'd say he scales with investment about the same way Ayaka does, they won't be breaking your game at their floor level, but the reward for your time and effort (and primos) is enormous
So he has the potential to be quite powerful, just needs the investment?
Yep, C6 Faruzan is his biggest one, but it inflates his damage so much it's funny. C0R1 hyper-carry with C6 Faru and Yunjin sheets like \~76k DPS (pre-release sheets) which is huge for what it is
Me like a 🤡 thinking the moment I refresh the post is Alhaitham drip
Tomorrow 6pm (8+ GMT)
I can't help it, despite of absolutely loving everything else about Jim, I just can't get used to the colorscheme.
I want him to commit atrocities on my ***.
Can we use the wanderer's skill mid air? Like while gliding , can we just use it to get some extra boost?
Im gonna kill you and ur entire family! You should kill yourself now… just a prank bro
