The key of Khaj-Nisut is a 5 star sword in Genshin Impact. With boosts to HP and Elemental Mastery (EM), it’s something you want in a top-tier fighter. It’s powerful if you can maximize its pairing. Here we list the best characters for this weapon along with their stats and perks.
Best Genshin Impact Characters for Key of Khaj-Nisut
The best character for Key of Khaj-Nisut in Genshin Impact is none other than Nilou. This is her signature weapon as her banner is only available when she also appears.
Additionally, Nilous Bloom-centric abilities scale down from their max HP. As of version 3.6, Key of Khaj-Nisut is the only sword that has HP% as a sub-stat as well as a perk. The only comparable weapon is Primordial Jade Cutter, but that only has the HP percentage increase as a perk.
In short, Key of Khaj-Nisut offers the highest possible HP stacking result among all options. This is further enhanced if you give this to Nilou Vourukasha’s lights and Tenacity of the Millelith Artifacts. We’re not even talking about the EM gains, which also scale the wearer’s max HP.

Aside from Nilou, the other best character for the key of Khaj-Nisut in Genshin Impact Is Kuki Shinobu. The healing from her elemental skill scales with her HP, as does the damage from her explosion. Likewise, one of her passive skills further increases the damage of her elemental skill based on her EM.
This coincides with the EM boost of the weapon’s perk. The only downside is that Kuki is a 4-star character – 5-star weapons are expensive and therefore reserved for 5-star characters.
Apart from the two above is the last option layla, although we don’t recommend them at all. Layla uses her HP stat through her elemental ability, both for shield absorption and additional projectile damage. The problem is that Layla is considered a support hybrid that does fairly little damage. So giving her a 5 star weapon is an absolute waste.
