Inazuma, the third region in Genshin Impact, takes inspiration from Japanese landscape and culture to the point the Archipelagos are full of Samurai, Sakuras, and thunderstorms.
Genshin Impact's Onikabutos is based on the rhinoceros beetle, a symbol in Modern Japanese culture. The Samurai masks resemble the horn of these insects.
The following guide pinpoints the locations of Onikabutos and how to make use of them.

Ready to start the search for these bugs? Here's what you need to know.
What is Onikabuto?
A strange beetle that inhabits areas rich with Electro energy. They can be found lounging in rocks and trees.
Despite Onikabutos being living beings, they always look inert. Therefore, they will not flee even if the tree is vigorously shaken or if there are explosions nearby.
The Onikabuto is an Inazuma Specialty. Travellers can look for them in areas with concentrated Electro Energy like the Sacred Sakura Tree and the Mikage Furnace.
There are Onikabutos in all regions of Inazuma. These are the best locations:
- The road from the Kamisato State to the Narukami Shrine
- Near the Sacred Sakura Tree and the cave in Mt. Yogou.
- The mines in Mikage Furnace in Tatarasuna.
- In Amakumo Peak in Seria Island.
The map below shows the location of Onikabuto in Genshin Impact.

Note: Onikabuto on trees must be reached; hitting the tree will not make it fall.
