The latest leak suggests that Paimon, Genshin Impact’s De facto mascot will die in the first moments of version 1.1. But there are many reasons why this cannot be true.
What exactly does this leak indicate? And is there some degree of truth in the rumors?
How does Paimon die? Genshin Impact?
According to the leak, version 1.1 introduces a new character named “Joe”. When Paimon and the Traveler enter the newest area, Dragonspine, Joe will use geo-skills to immobilize the duo. After the two are out of service, Joe allegedly kills Paimon in cold blood and devours her to begin a dark new chapter in Genshin Impact History.
This alleged leak was revealed in an October 28 video published by Genshin Impact YouTuber Tectone. He explained the death in greater detail, citing a lengthy Reddit post as its main source.
As expected, some fans were pretty upset about the death.
Will Paimon actually die? Genshin Impact Version 1.1?
No. Despite the huge number of views and numerous videos responding to Paimon’s death, this is definitely a prank Tectone invented. At the end of his video, Tectone reveals that Joe’s full name is “Joe Mama”. Paimon’s death was just an elaborate joke from Yo Mama.
Tectone’s prank was so popular for a number of reasons. First, he noticed that the leaked scene occurred in an area we know as part of Dragonspine. Second, Tectone is known Genshin Impact YouTubers, so his claims carry considerable weight, especially on days not directly related to pranks like April Fools’ Day.
Third, he used a “Trending in Japan” bar on the thumbnail, imitating videos of Tokyosaurus creating explanations based on things that are trending in Japan. The appearance of this bar implies a possible language barrier. Of course, non-Japanese viewers would not know what was going on in Japan, so they would reasonably not know about Paimon’s alleged death. Eventually, Tectone revealed that Paimon’s death was a prank fairly late in the video, taking advantage of the instantly reactive nature found in the YouTube comment sections.
There is currently no reason to believe that Paimon will die Genshin Impact Version 1.1 or a later update. Paimon is Genshin Impact’s Mascot character. Your face is featured throughout the game’s marketing and is used as a game icon.
Why do so many people want Paimon dead?
Outside of this video, Paimon’s death was a big hit with fans. Some fans have made videos of Paimon himself being killed, while others have made compilations of her death.
This mainly comes from Paimon’s in-game nickname “Emergency Food”. It’s an adorable title that made navigation a meme among fans.
Not only is Emergency Food a meme, it’s an adorable title for Paimon. Claiming that it dies from being eaten is just fun.

that paimon is eaten one way or another. Tectone happens to have a far larger audience than the previous players who spread Paimon’s death through consumption.
