New lore on Scaramouche in Genshin Impact 2.2 sparks new playable theories from fans

The new story quest in Labyrinth Warriors revealed a shocking story twist and new lore. Scaramouche, after getting Ei’s Gnosis from Yae, ended up keeping it for himself.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Fatui starts antagonizing him for that reason. Which will make him another separate antagonist force in Genshin Impact.

If miHoYo plans to make Scaramouche playable one day, perhaps this is the first step, story-wise, towards his implementation. Every playable character in Genshin Impact is (currently) canonically amicable with the traveler. Because they need to be able to have amicable discussions when added to the Serenitea Pot.

The best way for Scaramouche to become playable would be for him and the Traveler to share a similar goal at some point in the story and cooperate. And this new detail regarding the Gnosis might be a hint toward that.

When could Scaramouche become playable, predictions

Seeing all the archon characters are becoming playable, it’s pretty much all but officially confirmed the Tsaritsa, the Cryo Archon and queen of Snezhnaya will be playable at some point.

It’s definitely possible Scaramouche gets implemented sooner though. At the end of the day though, it will all depend on whether miHoYo actually planned to make him a playable character or not.

If you missed it, we previously translated the new video interviews with the seiyuu (Japanese voice actors) of Scaramouche and La Signora. Tetsuya Kakihara most notably mentioned miHoYo increased the lines of the dialogue of Scaramouche in Inazuma after seeing how popular he is.

In other words, if you want Scaramouche to be playable, keep tweeting about him and keep asking miHoYo about it in surveys. We might get to see him more that way. If miHoYo plans to make Scaramouche playable, a rough timeframe of when he’ll be released must’ve been decided internally. But If they currently have no plans to make him playable it’s even more important to keep asking for playable Scara to change their minds.

Genshin Impact is playable right now on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS, and Android. A Nintendo Switch version is currently in development too. You can also chat with me about the game @A_iyane07.
