Honkai Star Rail Dr. Ratio element, path, and more

Honkai Star Rail’s Dr. Ratio – yes, that’s really his name – is now a member of the playable roster. He’s a follower of the Hunt path and is an Imaginary-using five-star unit. I’m too old to make a ratio-based joke here, but I feel like his hand making an L-shape in his splash art is on purpose.

What are Dr. Ratio’s abilities?

Dr. Ratio focuses on single-target damage and has a follow-up attack in his kit. He can dish out some hefty imaginary damage. Here are all his moves.

Active skills:

Skill Effect
Basic attack: Mind is Might Dr. Ratio uses his codex to deal imaginary damage to a single target
Skill: Intellectual Midwifery Unleashes a stronger imaginary attack on a single target
Ultimate: Syllogistic Paradox Dr. Ratio summons a leaning tower and plots a trajectory to inflict maximum damage to a single enemy. The target enemy also gets inflicted with Wisemans Folly. When an ally attacks a target marked with this, he launches his follow-up attack (Cogito Ergo Sum)

Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Dr. Ratio?

Described as ‘candid and self-centered’ Dr. Ratio seems like an interesting guy. He’s a member of the Intelligentsia Guild, which collects and trades knowledge across the universe. In the Guild, there are different schools, though Hoyoverse hasn’t revealed which Dr. Ratio belongs to just yet.

Boasting unparalleled intelligence, Dr. Ratio has one cause in mind – to rid the universe of a terrible disease: ignorance. Not gonna lie, he seems very full of himself, but hopefully, his kit will redeem his questionable personality.

Who are Honkai Star Rail Dr. Ratio’s voice actors?

Dr. Ratio’s English voice is Jordan Paul Haro, known for his work in other games like Ancestors Legacy and Minecraft. Meanwhile, his Japanese voice is Shunsuke Takeuchi, who provides voices in Street Fighter 6 and Vinland Saga, among other titles.

That’s all we know about Dr. Ratio so far, so why not brush up on some other builds? We’ve got guides for Honkai Star Rail’s Argenti, Honkai Star Rail’s Huohuo, and Honkai Star Rail’s Hanya to ensure you get the right relics and light cones on each character.
