Not every Thunder Barrier can be destroyed in Genshin Impact, but they can all be passed through.

To pass through a Thunder Barrier, players must have an Electrograna, a temporary buff obtained by interacting with a Thunder Sakura Bough.

Different barriers have different strengths, so some may be impassable until Players upgrade their Electrograna buffs through Sacred Sakura's Favor by offering Electro Sigils to the Sacred Sakura Tree.

Thunder Barriers will have symbols on them denoting their strength:
