New Genshin Impact Comic Shows ‘Emergency Food’ Paimon Striking Back
Genshin Impact has been hugely successful since its release earlier this year, offering fans a Breath of the Wild-esque world with the inclusion of gacha mechanics and, yes, waifus. One of the more divisive elements of the game is Paimon, the Navi-like sidekick who acts as comic relief and de facto speaker for the game’s protagonist. A running joke is that Paimon is essentially the protag’s ’emergency food’, though the newly released Genshin Impact comic throws even that into question because, well, Paimon is apparently terrifying.
Genshin Impact’s official Twitter account recently uploaded another humor-filled entry in its ‘To the Statue of the Seven’ comic series. Painting Paimon in a more humorous light, the latest page depicts the male version of the protagonist battling it out with some slimes before Paimon swoops in and, well, eats and drinks them all up. It’s pretty scary, check it out below:
If nothing else, this is a good enough reason to stop referring to Paimon as emergency food. After all, she knows where you sleep… The other two comic pages can be seen below. The one on the left depicts Paimon’s response to the protagonist’s extremely relatable wanderlust and desire to explore, while the comic on the right shows what happens when the Traveler ignores Paimon to get some more sleep.
Genshin Impact is now available for PC, PS4, and Android & iOS devices. A Nintendo Switch version is slated to release later this year.
